LUCKNOW: Speaking at an event to mark Veer Bal Diwas, observed in the memory of the martyrdom of the four Sahibzadas, sons of Guru Gobind Singh, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath related the bravery of the Sikh regiment during the India Army’s skirmish with the Chinese forces on December 9.
The CM on Monday said that when he asked how the Indian Army suppressed the Chinese during the skirmish, he was told that every single member of the Sikh Regiment took on two Chinese soldiers each and beat them up properly before letting them go.
“This is bravery. To take this tradition forward, collective contribution is necessary. This tradition also provides us with the opportunity to express our gratitude towards our ancestors,” he said. The CM said that the four sons of Guru Gobind Singh gave up their lives to protect India’s culture and religion.
This is the real children’s day, says CM Yogi
“The day is an occasion topay tributes to Ajit Singh, Fateh Singh, Zorawar Singh Sahab and Jujhar Singh,” he said. Calling it the real ‘Children’s Day’, the CM said that Veer Bal Diwas was India’s genuine history.
Expressing pleasure that the work of showcasing India’s rich history through a book was in progress, the CM said that in 2021 he had made an appeal to make the story of the Sahibzadas known to people, otherwise they would forget about their supreme sacrifice, who they were, how old they were when they died.
The CM also expressed his gratitude towards the office-bearers of the Lucknow and Gorakhpur Gurdwara Management Committee for having maintained sustained pressure over governments to observe Veer Bal Diwas. “The programme started here is now observed across the world. Prime Minister NarendraModi inaugurated the programme in Delhi on Monday,” he said.
The CM said that the Yahiyaganj Gurdwara is connected with Guru Teg Bahadur and Guru Gobind Singh. He directed the culture department to identify gurdwaras associated with the Guru tradition and make a concrete plan to beautify the area around them and improve connectivity. Any problems being faced by the management of these gurdwaras should be brought to the government’s attention. He added that nothing can become a hurdle in expressing respect for the Guru tradition and the four Sahibzadas.
