Butterworth gurdwara hearse to serve northern Sikh community

Sikhs in Penang and Kedah can now make avail of a hearse service provided by Gurdwara Sahib Butterworth (GSB).

Run by volunteers, the hearse is free for Seberang Perai and the Penang island, while a fee of RM70 is levied for Kulim and Sungai Petani in Kedah.

It is understood that this is the only hearse operated by Sikhs in the north of Peninsular Malaysia.

“The van was donated in 2016 by Gurdwara Sahib Sentul when they acquired a new van. We then refurbished the van and have a small pool of dedicated sewadars (volunteers),” GSB committee president Narinder Singh tells Asia Samachar.

“For Penang, we don’t charge anything, but families are welcome to contribute for the use of the hearse,” he said.

The cost for a private hearse, without a coffin, in the northern states of Peninsular Malaysia can range between RM300 to RM500.
