Drug-violence forum at Surrey gurdwara this Sunday (April 26)

SURREY — Eileen Mohan, the mother of "Surrey Six" murder victim Christopher Mohan, is a guest speaker at a drug-violence forum set to happen Sunday, April 26 at Gurdwara Dukh Niwaran (15255 68th Ave., Surrey), starting at 11:30 a.m.

Event details were sent to local news media today (Friday), in light of several recent shootings in Surrey.

"The gurdwara feels responsible to pro-actively engage with the public in stopping this senseless violence," reads an email from Jessie Kaur.

"It is a campaign to educate our community about the dangers of exposure to drugs and to encourage them to take action to protect themselves. The emphasis of the program will be to discuss how to prevent, intervene and suppress drugs and violence due to it, among our youth."

Other speakers at the event will include Giani Narinder Singh, Mufti Asim Rashid, Jag Khosa (Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit) and Moe Bhatha, a former gangster.
