The New Jersey Senate has recognised the 400th birth anniversary of ninth Sikh master, Guru Tegh Bahadur, as ‘Human Rights and Religious Freedom Day’.
A resolution in this regard was passed by Senate president Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin while honouring activists of the Sikh Coordination Committee East Coast (SCCEC).
Himmat Singh, coordinator, SCCEC, said it was a great day for the Sikh community. He said Guru Tegh Bahadur sacrificed his life against the forced conversion of Hindus by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in 1675.
