Kirk extends sympathy to Sikhs

General Assembly of the Church of Scotland 2018The Church of Scotland has extended its deepest sympathy to Edinburgh’s Sikh community who sustained an attack early this morning when the Guru Nanak Gurdwara Sahib temple in Leith was subjected to an arson attack.  The Rt Rev Susan Brown, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, pictured left, said: “How sad that a place of worship should be the target of such a hateful act.  I am glad no one was injured and extend sympathy to the Sikh community in Edinburgh. We recognise the actions of a small minority do not reflect the good relations that exist with your local community. There is no room in Scotland for intolerance.”
