Last week, the Senate in the US state of Utah unanimously passed a resolution honoring the contribution of the Sikh community. It commended the Sikhs for their humanitarian services, despite facing worldwide hatred and persecution. The resolution was introduced by Representative Angela Romero and Senator Luz Escamilla from Salt Lake City.
According to a tweet from the Utah Senate, the Senate unanimously passed House Joint Resolution 4, which highlights the significant contributions of the Sikh community. We are connected to members of the Sikh community from Utah as well as from India and other parts of the world. The resolution described Sikhism as one of the world’s largest religions, focused on loving service to humanity, but it has long faced worldwide persecution and discrimination.
The state of Utah seeks to advance the diversity of its community and the shared experiences of Sikhs by enacting laws for access to equal opportunity as human beings, to better reflect the rich history of all residents regardless of their race, the resolution said. Provides an opportunity to be understood, recognized and appreciated.
