DUBAI: A Sikh temple in Dubai on Thursday broke the world record for serving breakfast to the maximum number of people from diverse nationalities.
The temple was awarded a Guinness World Record after serving 600 people from 101 countries an hour-long continental breakfast.
The temple broke the previous record of 55 nationalities sharing a continental breakfast, organized by Nutella at the Milan Expo in Italy in 2015.
The Khaleej Times reported that schoolchildren, government officials and diplomats attended the event while Indian Ambassador to the UAE Navdeep Singh Suri was the chief guest.
“Sikhism has always embraced diversity as it has been part of our faith and belief, that we are all human beings to be treated with respect. The Gurudwara has been spearheading charity and volunteer work not only for the Indian community but for the entire UAE community as well. We feel blessed to give in any form, as this is our selfless service to the society,” Surender Kandhari, chairman of the Gurudwara Guru-nanak Darbar temple, told the Khaleej Times.
Talal Omar, Guinness World Records MENA manager, said: “We are proud to support the Gurudwara Gurunanak Darbar in breaking a fantastic record that brings together people of multi-faiths. We encourage record breaking activities that encourage all human efforts, particularly those that bring people together.”
