PSGPC remembers Guru Arjan Dev

Amritsar, June 16

Amid Nanakshahi calendar row, the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) today commemorated the martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev at Gurdwara Dehra Sahib in Lahore. Unlike the SGPC, the PSGPC follows the original Nanakshahi calendar.

'Akhand Path' was performed in connection with Shahidi Purab, whereas ragi jathas performed 'kirtan'.

The event was attended by PSGPC chief Satwant Singh, general secretary Amir Singh, former chief Bishan Singh and other representatives of the Evacuee Trust Property Board.

A member of the board said every year thousands of devotees from India and other countries turn up, but devotees from abroad could not attend the event in the wake of Covid. To mark the occasion, 'Akhand Paths' were also performed at Gurdwara Nankana Sahib and Gurdwara Panja Sahib. — TNS
