Late Shree Arjanbhai Karsandas Vekaria JP
R.I.P. Arjanbhai. You Will Be Truly Missed!

Gone But Never Forgotten.
“A great loss to the Hindu community in the UK, India and beyond”

His tireless dedication towards community service was ‘selfless seva’ in its truest form and in this regard he was an inspiration to all.

It is with great sadness that we announce the news that our Patron and past President, Shree Arjanbhai Karsandas Vekaria JP, has passed away suddenly on Saturday 23rd November in India (India time 10:53pm).

His tireless dedication towards community service was ‘selfless seva’ in its truest form and in this regard he was an inspiration to all.

Our sincere condolences to Jayaben, Panna, Khyati, and entire Vekaria family for their loss.

May God rest his soul in eternal peace.
Om Shanti Om Shanti Om Shanti
