Union Govt.’s decision of stopping Sikhs from visiting Nankana Sahib will always hurt community: Bibi Jagir Kaur

Amritsar, March 1, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) on Monday organised a grand Gurmat Samagam (religious programme) at Habri village in Kaithal district of Haryana, dedicated to the centenary of Saka Nankana Sahib, when Gurdwara Nankana Sahib was liberated from mahants about 100 years ago.

SGPC is organizing these programmes at different places dedicated to Saka Nankana Sahib and centenary of the establishment of SGPC, to commemorate the leaders of Gurdwara Reform Movement, and the event at Habri is also held under this series.

On this occasion many Sikh personalities including the SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur shared their views with the congregation and the renowned raagis (gurbani kirtan singers), dhaddis (ballad singers) and kavishar (poetry) groups connected the gathering with Gurbani Kirtan and the glorious history of the Sikhs.

Notably, the family of Jathedar Kartar Singh Jhabbar, an important leader of the Gurdwara Reform Movement, had migrated to Habri village in Kaithal district of Haryana after the partition of the country.

Speaking on the occasion, SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur said, “The Sikh community laid the foundation of the country’s independence and not only here but whenever there was a calamity in the country, the Sikhs rendered great services as per teachings of the Gurus. The brutal atrocities perpetrated by the goons of Mahant Narain Das, on the Sikhs who had come to restore the sanctity of the holy shrine Sri Nankana Sahib a hundred years ago, was a cruel truth of the times which could never be forgotten.”

“At the same time, the sad page noted in Sikh history of stopping the Sikhs from attending the centenary of Saka Nankana Sahib by the present government of India will always hurt the Sikhs. I appeal to the sangat to pay special attention to connect the youth with the history”, said Bibi Jagir Kaur.

SGPC president also announced financial assistance for Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha at Habri village, including Rs 5 lakh for Jathedar Kartar Singh Jhabbar Diwan Hall and Rs 2 lakh for a library.

Jathedar Jhabbar’s grandson S. Jograj Singh Jhabbar and prominent personalities were honored on the occasion with Siropao (robe of honour) and mementos.

Member of SGPC executive committee Harbhajan Singh Masana, S. Bhupinder Singh Assandh, S. Jagsir Singh Mangeana, S. Tejinderpal Singh Ladwa, Bibi Arvinder Kaur, Baba Sukha Singh Kar Sewa Karnal and other Sikh leaders from Haryana were present.
