    LAHORE: Sikhs from across the world marked the 171st death anniversary of Maharaja Ranjit Singh at the Gurdwara Dera Sahib in which the rituals of the concluding ceremony were performed.

    The Evacuee Trust Property Board managed the festivities and accommodated the Sikhs.

    ETPB Additional Secretary Shrines Muhammad Khuram Sadique said the government was providing maximum facilities to minorities and that they had complete liberty to perform their religious duties. He said that the yatrees’ lodging and boarding expenses were borne by the government of Pakistan and they were provided with full security to move freely in holy places during their visit to the country.

    He said that many development works had been made in gurdawaras with new rooms and toilets being made and a new electrical system being installed at the Gurdawara Dera Sahib. Sikh leader Amar Jeet Singh said Pakistan was like a second home to the minority group. “Both countries should negotiate to resolve their problems. We should ignore the past, look to the future and try to live like friends,” he added.

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!
