Shimla: The teachings of 10th Sikh Guru Gobind Singh are still relevant to promote harmony and brotherhood, Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh said on Sunday.
“The teachings of Guru Gobind Singh are more relevant in present times and we should follow them to enrich our lives and to promote peace and harmony in society,” he said at a function here to mark the 350th birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Gobind Singh.
Noting the Sikh Guru inspired him as he was a great warrior who fought for the unity and integrity of the country, Virbhadra Singh said that he also “showed the path to humanity and strengthened the Sikh religion”.
The Sikhs have contributed immensely towards the development of the country through their distinguished services and also established their presence world over,” he said.
Virbhadra Singh also said he would make best efforts to look into the demands of the state’s Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee.
