Amritsar, January 23, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
In the meeting of Sikh Itihas Research Board chaired by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Bibi Jagir Kaur, it has been decided to publish various books dedicated to the 400th birth anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji along with historical diaries and illustrated booklets for children.

Apart from this, the SGPC also approved to develop a Gurmukhi font for computer typing.

Disclosing this here on Saturday, SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur said, “In order to commemorate the 400th birth anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib, various puritan (old) books would be republished by the SGPC along with new books based on recently done research.

Illustrated books will be prepared especially for children, which will contain historical pictures as well as history. In addition, a commemorative diary dedicated to the 400th birth anniversary will be published. This diary will record pictures of historical places and events related to Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib.”

Meanwhile, the SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur demanded from the Government of India to issue a commemorative postage stamp, coin and letter envelope dedicated to the 400th birth anniversary of the ninth Guru Ji.

The SGPC president also appealed to the Prime Minister of India and Chief Minister of Odisha to embody the shabd ‘Gagan Mein Thalu’ (considered as the anthem of the Universe) of Guru Nanak Dev Ji in such a way by erecting a minaret in the square of Jagannath Puri, that the melody of this holy shabd of Guru Sahib is played in Punjabi, English, Hindi, Odia and other languages over there.

Bibi Jagir Kaur said that official request letters will be written to the Centre government and the Odisha state government in this regard.

Bibi Jagir Kaur said that during the meeting of the Sikh Itihas Research Board it was also decided to compile the 100-year history of the SGPC. Earlier, the 50-year history was being published by the SGPC. The history of the next fifty years will be collected and disseminated to the sangat to give information about the contribution of the organization.

She also said that soon the books related to history by the SGPC would be available on the official website of the organization from where everyone could avail them.

Bibi Jagir Kaur said that the SGPC would soon record documentary interviews of prominent personalities of the Sikh community who have contributed in various fields. She said its purpose is to preserve the contributions of various Sikh personalities and to inspire the Sikh youth.

In the meeting, Dr Paramvir Singh, S. Harwinder Singh Khalsa, SGPC member Bibi Harjinder Kaur, S. Sukhdev Singh Bhurakohna, S. Kulwinder Singh Ramdas, S. Tejinder Singh Padda, Dr. Amrik Singh, S.
