Amritsar, April 10

The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) today displayed three portraits and two paintings at the Central Sikh Museum of the Golden Temple, related to Nagahia Singh, a devoted Sikh of Guru Gobind Singh; Saka (massacre) of Gurdwara Sri Paonta Sahib 1964, Shaheed Daya Singh of Morcha Gangsar Jaito, Ghadri Baba Shaheed Banta Singh Sangwal and former SGPC member Tota Singh.

The ceremony of unveiling the portraits and paintings was performed by SGPC president Harjinder Singh Dhami, Jathedar of Takht Sri Kesgarh Sahib Giani Raghbir Singh and Tarna Dal Harian Velan head Nihal Singh.

The Central Sikh Museum is an important source of the Sikh history and heritage where portraits of those who make great contributions to Panthic causes and sacrifice for the community are displayed.

Dhami said Bhai Nagahia Singh had offered a horse to Guru Gobind Singh when he reached Alamgir village (now in Ludhiana) from Machhiwara while on his further journey after the Battle of Chamkaur Sahib.

Talking about Saka of Gurdwara Sri Paonta Sahib, he said eleven Sikhs of Misal Shaheedan Tarna Dal Harian Velan jathebandi under the leadership of Harbhajan Singh sacrificed their lives to free the Sikh shrine from the Mahants (priest). This was an exemplary sacrifice, the witness of which is the living martyr Nihal Singh Harian Velan who is still performing Panthic services. He said the Sikh community would always remember the contribution made by the martyrs of this massacre towards the community’s organisation.

Similarly, the services and dedication of Shaheed Daya Singh of Gurdwara Gangsar Sahib Jaito, Ghadri warrior Banta Singh Sangwal and former minister of Punjab Tota Singh, who remained SGPC member for long are also exemplary.

During the ceremony, Jathedar Giani Raghbir Singh, Nihal Singh Harian Velan and SGPC secretary Partap Singh also expressed their views. The SGPC president honoured the personalities present on this occasion.
