Some 50 police officers and personnel led by the Malacca state police chief were feted to a sumptuous vegetarian dinner at the Malacca gurdwara on Wednesday (3 May 2017) in conjunction with the Police Day.
DCP Abd Jalil Hassan and his team made history as this is the first time the gurdwara threw the dinner for members of the state police.
“They’ve always been helpful to the gurdwara, including when we have major functions like the annual yaadgari,” Gurdwara Sahib Malacca president Karam Singh tells Asia Samachar.
The other state top cops at the dinner were Melaka Tengah OCPD Assistant Commissioner Abdul Adzis Shaikh Abdullah and Malacca Criminal Investigation Department chief Assistant Commissioner Kamaluddin Kassim.
Some of the gurdwara officials joining the dinner were GSM trustee Dr Jaswant Singh, Jaswant Singh (VP), Lakhbir Singh (assistant treasurer), Baldip Singh (assistant secretary) and Ranjit manager.
Malacca Sikhs are preparing for the 45th Sant Baba Sohan Singh Ji Salaana Yaadgar Semagam, a programme commonly referred to as the ‘Malacca barsi’, between 18-21 May 2017. It is the largest annual Sikh gathering in Southeast Asia.
