Some 5,000 people and representatives from all the five major faiths are expected at the Nagar Kirtan Bangkok tomorrow (10 Nov) in conjunction with the 500th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak.

The procession, where Sikh religious hymns will be sung along the way, will start at 7am at the Thai Sikh Gate and end up at Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Bangkok.

The procession will be joined by representatives from the various faiths: Buddhism, Christian, Islam, Hindu and Sikhi.

“Guru Nanak taught us to walk together, and to move together,” organising team member Darshan Singh Sachdev told a press conference yesterday.

Thai Minister for Cultural and Religious Affairs Ithiphol Khunpluem is scheduled to open the event.

More than 60 Indian-based organisations are expected to support the procession, said another volunteer involved in the event.
