The Tribune – RSS to spread Guru’s teachings in South

Ravi S Singh, Tribune News Service

New Delhi, 15 March 2017. Following RSS’ call to its cadre to spread the message and teachings of Guru Gobind Singh across the country, its affiliate Rashtriya Sikh Sangat has planned events to perpetuate his memory in Southern states as part of the ongoing celebrations of his 350th birth anniversary.

Sangat’s national general secretary Avinash Jaiswal said events, such as “Guru kirtan”, had been lined up in Kerala.

Mata Amritanandamayi (known as “Amma”), a Hindu spiritual leader, would hold an event at her Amritapuri Ashram in Thiruvananthapuram in May. “Sangat is in touch with leaders of other socio-religious groups to organise events in the memory of the 10th Sikh Guru,” he added.

The RSS has made it known that it considers the Guru as one of the country’s greatest heroes who has inspired every one by his nationalism, supreme sacrifice, universal brotherhood, humanism, self-respect and courage.

Speaking at a function celebrating the Guru’s birth anniversary in Surat (Gujarat) on March 5, RSS’ key national functionary Suresh Josh said, “His mere name infuses energy and courage.”

Sangat’s another national functionary Avtar Singh Shastri said events had also been lined up in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Goa and Tamil Nadu.

The ten Guru’s all had the same message, they were not nationalists, they were spritual leaders who spoke out against oppression, and indeed did believe in universal brotherhood.
