The Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) commemorated the 181st martyrdom of Maharaja Ranjit Singh at Gurdwara Dera Sahib in Lahore.
An akhand path for the occasion was initiated on June 27 and the bhog was performed today amid “Gurbani Kirtan” followed by “ardas”.
Due to the pandemic, the occasion was held in a subdued manner in the presence of local sangat only. Normally, devotees from all parts of the world come to attend the occasion.
The SGPC, which follows the amended Nanakshahi Calendar, had observed the occasion on June 28.
Meanwhile, head priest of Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib appealed that the doors of the shrine had been opened and the devotees could come to pay obeisance.
