PM Modi to pay homage to the courage of the ‘Sahibzades’ on “Veer Baal Diwas”
The Union government is set to organize an event on “Veer Baal Diwas” at India Gate in the national capital on December 26. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also be present at the event to pay homage to ‘Sahibzadas’.
Earlier this year, the Prime Minister had declared that December 26 should henceforth be declared as “Veer Baal Diwas” to pay homage to the courage of the ‘Sahibzades’, the four sons of Guru Gobind Singh, the last Sikh guru.
The Union government is planning to celebrate the occasion at a grand level and make it informative with help of multiple mediums. A number of meetings are also being held to make the event grand and successful.
All the major places of attraction, metros, airports and petrol pumps will conduct an exhibition or digital informative exhibition about the Sahibzades.
Nearly 15 lakh schools across the country have held exhibitions on “Veer Bal Diwas” talking about the sacrifices and contributions of the ‘Sahibzades’. Many competitions like essay writing, painting, quiz, etc are also being held in memory of this day. The official website of ‘MyGov’ is opening a window for the participants to participate in such competitions.
While all four sons of Guru Gobind Singh were martyred, the date has been chosen as it was the day observed as the martyrdom day of the ‘Sahibzadas’ — Zorawar Singh and Fateh Singh, who were killed at the young age of six and nine in Sirhind (Punjab) by Mughal forces.
BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa said, “This will be a historic first-time event on ‘Veer Baal Diwas’. The day when we remember the sons of Guru Gobind Singh ji, who sacrificed their lives in the fight against forceful conversion and other atrocities at the young age of six and nine. It is an honor to remember them with great respect.”
