Amritsar, Punjab: The Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) will celebrate ‘Gurpurabs’ and observe martyrdom days of all Gurus besides other important events of the Sikh history in accordance with the amended Nanakshahi calendar, officially recognised as the Sikh calendar by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC).
This assurance was given by PSGPC president Sham Singh over the telephone from Pakistan to SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar on Wednesday.
The SGPC claimed that Sham Singh called up Makkar and thanked him for presenting a ‘siropa’ and sword to him through Ramesh Singh Arora, the first Sikh MP of Pakistan.
Arora, who was on a week-long tour of India, returned through the Wagah check-post.
The PSGPC had been celebrating all important Sikh historical events as per the traditional Bikrami calendar. This had caused confusion over the pilgrimage of Sikh Jathas from India to Pakistan.
