Indian American Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, along with more than a dozen lawmakers, introduced a Resolution in the House of Representatives to designate April 14 of each year as National Sikh Day, the day Guru Gobind Singh founded the Khalsa and when Sikhs throughout the world celebrate 'Vaisakhi.'

Observing that the Sikh community, which started immigrating to the United States over 100 years ago, played an important role in developing the country, the Resolution supports the designation of "National Sikh Day" to honour and celebrate the Sikh community's important role in strengthening and inspiring the people of the United States.
