    SAD defends changes in Nanakshah Calendar, says important for Panthic Unity

    Punjab Newsline Network
    Tuesday, 05 January 2010

    CHANDIGARH: Shiromani Gurdwara Prabhandhak Committee’s decision to amend the sikh calendar Nanakshahi is based on a visionary approach which would pave the way for the panthic unity and prove to be a milestone in this direction. This was stated by Dr. Daljit Singh Cheema secretary and Chief Spokesman of the Shiromani Akali Dal.


    In a statement released here from the party head office on Tueswday, Dr. Cheema said that Nanakshahi calendar is a calendar of the whole sikh panth which was not accepted by takht Sri Patna Sahib and Takht Sri Hazoor Sahib Nanded when it was implemented almost some years ago and Sant Samaj too had some reservations about it. Amendments now made by the SGPC, which the Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib has accepted and directed to implement from Chait month, are a serious attempt aimed to remove the objections of both the takht sahibs and of Sant Samaj. Now, after the assent of Jathedar Sahiban of five takht sahibs and approval of the amendments by the Gurmat Sidhant Pracharak Sant Samaj, it is high time for all of us to work unitedly for the betterment of sikh panth.


    Dr. Cheema, who is also advisor to Chief Minister Punjab, said that in the last two decades, Sikhs have suffered a lot and have witness events which are difficult to forget. He said that the time has come for all the panthic leaders to work for giving a crushing defeat to those elements in Punjab, in country and abroad, who were working to harm the community on the directions of those forces which attacked Sri Akal Takht Sahib, Sri Darbar Sahib, were actively involved in sikh carnage and are now active to harm the interests of the sikh community to fulfill their nefarious designs.


    He said that Nanakshahi calendar is a calendar of Sikh community which has full right to amend and update it according to the changing need of the time and no interference of the external forces would be tolerated in this matter. He said that there is no doubt that new amendments made would remove all misunderstandings of the past in the sikh panth.It is high time for all of us to jointly celebrate all out historic days according to the Nanakshahi calendar, he added.


    He appealed to the community members to come forward and accept and implement Nanakshahi calendar from Chaiter month according to the directives of the Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
