Amritsar, August 26

In a first, the 'jyoti jot' diwas (death anniversary) of Guru Nanak Dev would be observed at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, Kartarpur Sahib, on September 22. The event holds significance as the gurdwara is the resting place of Guru Nanak Dev.

The decision was taken during a meeting of the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) and the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) today.

Satwant Singh, president of PSGPC, also took an opportunity to appeal to the Indian Government to open the Kartarpur corridor for the Indian pilgrims between September 20 and 22.

"It is for the first time that we are commemorating this occasion. We appeal to the Indian government to open the Kartarpur corridor from its side temporarily for three days so that the Indian pilgrims could participate in the historic occasion," he said. He also appealed to Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh and SGPC president Gobind Singh Longowal to lead the jatha to Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib through the corridor. — TNS
