Resolution on the demise of Mr. Noel King

The General Body meeting of the Institute of Sikh Studies, Chandigarh, India, passed the following Resolution on February 07, 2009, on the sad demise of Mr. Noel Q King, the well known scholar and writer and philosopher, who had deep study of the Sikh religion and its traditions.

The assembly of the Institute of Sikh Studies, Chandigarh, recited the Mool Mantar five times to honour the memory of the noted Sikh scholar, Mr. Noel Q King, who had won the heart and soul of the Sikh community by his sagacious treatment of the Sikh theology. He had been in the thick of the Sikh ethos and had been honoured by Sri Akal Takht, Amritsar, the Supreme seat of Sikh Authority. He had contributed scholarly papers to the Sikh seminars and conferences. He had intimate knowledge of the subject having associated as teacher at Guru Nanak University, Amritsar, Punjabi University, Patiala and guided many young scholars on Sikh Studies.

We pray to Almighty to grant peace to the departed soul and solace to his wife and his children and grand-children and guide them to imbibe his great traditions of truth and peace.
