A Sikh holy man and spiritual leader from India will be in upstate New York on Saturday for the rededication of the Gobind Sadan USA temple.
The Oswego County temple was burned to the ground in 2001 by four teens who believed it was called "Go-Bin-Laden."
Giani Iqbal Singh ji, leader of one of the five traditional sects of Sikhism, will arrive from India to help dedicate the rebuilt temple, located in the Oswego County village of Palermo, about 35 miles north of Syracuse.
Local leaders say this is the first time a so-called Jethadar has traveled outside of India to dedicate a Sikh temple anywhere in the world.
With 25 million members, including 200,000 in the United States, Sikhism is one of the world's largest religions. [Link]
