Rival groups in Crawley's Sikh community in bitter dispute over temple and holy books

WORSHIPPERS at a Crawley temple were left in tears after a bitter row between members of the town's Sikh community led to one group arriving unannounced to remove holy books to take them to a new temple.
The community has been divided over plans to relocate from the temple in Spencers Road, West Green to a newly renovated building in Ifield Green, Ifield.
Last Wednesday that dispute came to a head when one group arrived at the Siri Guru Singh Sabha in West Green to remove cooking utensils, electrical equipment and the temple's six copies of the Sikh holy text – the Guru Granth Sahib.
They planned to take everything over to the new temple – the newly converted Edwards Sports and Social Club.
