Capt Amarinder seeks declaration of 550th Guru Nanak Parkash Purb as National Tolerance Day

Chandigarh, June 3, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to declare the auspicious 550th Parkash Purb of Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji as National Tolerance Day.

The Chief Minister has written a letter to the prime minister seeking that the auspicious day be declared National Tolerance Day for the re-dedication of people to Sri Guru Nanak Dev’s message of love, compassion and tolerance.

Since the teachings of Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji are as relevant today as they were in his times, the 550th Parkash Utsav of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, to be observed on November 12 this year, should be declared as National Tolerance Day as a befitting tribute to the great Master, said the Chief Minister. He further suggested that the birth anniversary of the first Guru be observed in this manner every year thereafter.

The Chief Minister mentioned that Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, during his lifetime, travelled far and wide, spreading the message of inclusion and tolerance, besides setting up a unique spiritual and social platform based on equality, fraternal love, goodness and virtue.

The fundamental beliefs of Sikhism, as articulated by Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji, included equality of mankind, engaging in selfless service, striving for social justice for the benefit and prosperity of all, articulated as ‘sarbat da bhala’, he pointed out. The 1st Guru was thus an epitome of love, compassion and tolerance, added Captain Amarinder.
