World University paid tribute to martyrs on Shaheedi Sabha

Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University, Fatehgarh Sahib, remembered the martyrdom of Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s younger sons Baba Zorawar Singh and Baba Fateh Singh and Mata Gujri Ji by taking part in the Nagar Keertan here today on the last day of Shaheedi Sabha.

The Vice Chancellor of the University, Dr. Sukhdarshan Singh Khehra said that the University organised various events and activities across the three days of Sabha to spread awareness among the pilgrims and to facilitate their stay in this holy city.  Dr. Khehra was of the view that these three days should be dedicated to remember and pay obeisance to the holy spirits who laid their lives for the protection and betterment of Sikh Community and we as the society should refrain from over indulging ourselves in materialistic things for these three days at the least.
