Pakistan allows Delhi Sikh body to renovate two gurudwaras

Amritsar, Punjab: Pakistan government has authorised the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee to do renovation work at two historic Gurudwaras situated in the country.

“They have asked the DSGMC to conduct the ‘kar sewa’ of Gurudwara Dera Sahib, Lahore and Gurudwara Ber Sahib, Sialkot,” DSGMC president Paramjeet Singh Sarna said today.

Sarna was on a visit to Pakistan and returned today.

The Dewan hall of Gurudwara Dera Sahib would be raised and we would build it new, he added.

When asked about old structures where Guru Granth Sahib has been installed, he said as of now no decision has been taken to disturb the old structure.

“We would take into confidence the Archaeological department of Pakistan in this regard,” he said.

“We will also form an expert committee along with the finance committee to carry out the construction work,” he said.

Sarna also claimed that the PETPB has also authorised DSGMC to carry out maintenance work at an inn at Nankana Sahib, which has a capacity to house 2,000 devotees.

“The DSGMC will bear the cost,” he said.

There are more than five hundred Sikh Gurudwaras and other historical Sikh places in Pakistan, except 20 all others are in bad condition.
