Q.

The other day I went to the Darbar Saheb (Golden Temple). The man sitting next to me in the Langar was a Kashmiri muslim, complete with his skull cap and Kashmiri attire. Next to him were sitting his two sons as we all took part in the Langar Chhakna (eating food of the Guru's Langar).
In Gurdwara the only thing you are required to do is to remove your shoes and cover your head. Any dress, any body...nobody barred, all are welcome.
What do you say???

Ok. Thanks for the informations.

Are all these types of langers beneficial to anyone?

Have you ever tried to analyse where from the money come for this. Who are the doners and how they convert their black money into white?

To me all these Langers / Bhandaras etc make people lazy and dependable to others. Is it the same Golden Temple where hundreds of girls were kept by Sikh terrorists? Is it a temple??

I am not surprised. From the common mans perspective, India is the most tolerant and democratic nation. For a moment, just forget the politics. Go anywhere in India, to any temple, Church or Mosque or Gurudwara. People do not ask you about your religion. People offer prayers and make donations to religious institutions belonging to other faith and such things are not looked down upon in society. Even foreigners belonging to non Hindu faith get entry to temples like TTD, Tirupati. Then we have good examples of Ajmer Darga, Siddi Vinayak Temple in Mumbai where people from all walks of life and faith offer their prayers.
