The world was reeling in shock after terror struck Spain’s Barcelona on Thursday evening. As many as 13 people were killed and over 100 were injured after a van rammed into a crowd of pedestrians and wreaked havoc. In times of crisis, Sikh community never shies away from lending its supporting hand forward. After the terror attack, the Sikh community in Spain opened their doors for people seeking help.
Harjinder S Kukreja from Punjab took to Twitter to inform people that Gurudwaras in Barcelona are offering help to those who are in need.
“If anyone needs shelter, food, Sikh houses of worship in the Spanish city are open for all,” Kukreja tweeted.
