As the federal government granting FCRA registration to an Amritsar-based affiliation to obtain overseas funds to serve langar to devotees of Golden temple, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday stated Prime Minister Narendra Modi is blessed that “Wahe Guruji has taken seva from him”.

In a sequence of tweets, the Home Minister stated, the Darbar Sahib’s divinity offers energy to us. For a long time, the Sangat worldwide was unable to serve there.”

He then went on so as to add: “Modi government’s decision to allow FCRA to the Sri Harmandir Sahib deepens the connect of Seva between the Sangat globally and Sri Darbar Sahib. A blessed moment!”

Shah additional stated, “The decision on FCRA at the Sri Harmandir Sahib is a pathbreaking one which will once again showcase the outstanding spirit of service of our Sikh sisters and brothers.”

Union Food Processing Minister and Akali Dal chief Harsimrat Kaur Badal thanked the Union Home Minister for granting registration below the Foreign Contribution Regulatory Act (FCRA) to the Sachkhand Sri Harmandir Saheb Sri Darbar Saheb Punjab Association. She stated this can allow the shrine to obtain ‘Sewa’ from everywhere in the world and go a good distance in propagating Gurusahab’s philosophy of ‘sarbat da bhala’.

“Happy to share that MHA has granted approval under FCRA to Sri Harmandir Sahib. This will enable the shrine to receive ‘sewa’ from all over the world & go a long way in propagating Gurusahab’s philosophy of ‘sarbat da bhala’. I’m grateful to @AmitShah Ji for making this possible,” she tweeted.

Earlier sources within the MHA stated, the Sachkhand Sri Harmandir Saheb Sri Darbar Saheb Punjab Association has been granted registration below the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 2010. The FCRA registration of the affiliation shall be legitimate for a interval of 5 years.

Langar providers in Golden temple are supplied by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee. The Sachkhand Sri Harmandir Saheb Sri Darbar Saheb Punjab Association, which utilized for FCRA registration on May 27, has been operating ‘langar’ providers to the devotees of Golden temple in Amritsar in Punjab, they stated.

Set up in 1925, the organisation to this point has been taking donations from inside the nation. With the granting of the FCRA registration by the MHA, the organisation can now take overseas contributions, which it may spend for operating ‘langar’ providers and assist poor and needy.
