To pay homage to the supreme sacrifice made by the youngest sons of Tenth Sikh Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Baba Zorawar Singh, Baba Fateh Singh and Mata Gujri Ji, Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University, Fatehgarh Sahib has organised various activities like free Dastar training camp, exhibition of religious books and Homeopathy and Physiotherapy camp in the Shaheedi Sabha here today.
The Registrar of Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University, Dr. Pritpal Singh said that such camps and initiatives are need of the hour as the Sikh youth are becoming Patit and have drawn into vices like drugs. He said that the University has taken these steps to spread awareness among the youth and to arrest the slide towards becoming lapsed Sikhs. The Registrar added that children need to be reminded of the symbols of their culture and their rich culture, heritage and history and public gatherings like these should be positively used for spreading awareness.
The University will be organising various programmes and events across the three days of Shaheedi Sabha i.e. from 25-27 December. Dr. Pritpal Singh said that the Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University’s main aim to participate in this Shaheedi Sabha is to create awareness among the pilgrims and to provide them with facilities during their stay in the city. He told the University aimed to remind the people arriving in this holy city of Fatehgarh Sahib from all over Punjab, the sacrifice of the tenth Sikh Guru and how the youngest sons of the Guru laid their lives for the honour of their community.
In the physiotherapy and homeopathy camp organised under the supervision of Dr. Pankajpreet Singh, over 200 patients were treated free of cost. Apart from the activities and events mentioned above the University team will also be showing documentaries and films related to Sikhism to the pilgrims.
