On March, 16 2009, a 10-pump fire swept Gurdwara Sikh Sangatarson, a temple on Harley Grove in Bow, according to the Evening Standard. Police considered the fire suspicious, the Standard reported. “It is difficult to watch,'' said a worshiper quoted by the East London Adverister. "All the holy books are being destroyed. ... We worship our holy books as steps to God.” No injuries were reported.
