Guru Nanak Nagar Keertan (Parade) Leicester 2012


In honour of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee, the first master of the Sikhs coming to this world, the Sikh community of Leicester hold an annual Nagar Keertan (Parade), which starts of at Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Gurdwara (East Park Road) and ends at Guru Nanak Gurdwara (St Nicholas Circle).  Even with the threat of rain looming, this year close to 10,000 individuals attended the parade.

The LSA Team were also present on the day and we had a prominent stall in the grounds of GNG Gurdwara, where we held a members drive and collected signatures for the "Sikhs For Justice" campaign to recognise Delhi 1984 as a Genocide by the United Nations (http://www.1984yesitsgenocide.org/join-the-fight).
