Amritsar, March 2, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) President in a letter written to the Secretary General, United Nations Organization (UNO) demanded and appealed from him to dedicate year 2021 to ninth Sikh master Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji as the “International Human Rights Year”.

In her letter to Secretary General Antonio Guterres, SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur said that the ninth Guru (Guru Tegh Bahadur) has made unique strides in the religious history of the world by giving his martyrdom for the sake of humanity.

“The martyrdom of Guru Sahib is of paramount importance in keeping religious freedom alive, which inspired the whole world to protect human rights and ensure religious freedom. The path shown by Guru Sahib for human equality and unity of community is to give guidance to the whole world”, said Bibi Jagir Kaur.

Bibi Jagir Kaur said that Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji showed a sense of self-respect in the people who were oppressed by the oppressors.

SGPC president calls on UNO in her letter to its General Secretary and said, “The 400th birth anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur is coming on May 1 this year, which would be celebrated throughout the year in the country as well as abroad. Therefore, in view of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji’s great contribution to humanity, the year 2021 should be celebrated as the International Human Rights Year by dedicating it to his 400th birth anniversary.”
