Sikh24.com – SGPC warmly welcomes Canadian Sikh bikers in India

Chandigarh – Panjab – India, 12 May 2019. Six Canada based Sikh bikers, who are on pilgrimage to Sultanpur Lodhi in commemoration of the 550th birthday celebrations due this year, received a warm welcome on their entrance into India via Attari-Wagah border station on May 11.

The SGPC officials and the Khadoor Sahib based Kaar Sewa sect head Baba Sewa Singh honored them with Siropaos (robe of honor) and flower bouquets.

Later, all of them went to the holiest Sikh shrine Sri Harmandr Sahib and paid obeisance there. After this, they were honored with ‘Siropaos’ (robe of honor), a portrait of Sri Harmandr Sahib and a set of religious books at the Information Office of Sri Harmandr Sahib.

Sharing their experiences about this pilgrimage, they said that they received warm welcome and honor across different countries of the world during this journey. “Peoples of various nationalities gave a positive response to the valuable teachings taught by Guru Nanak Sahib,” they added.

SGPC’s chief secretary Dr. Roop Singh said that these Sikh youths have made a positive effort to create awareness about the Sikh heritage, Sikh identity and the welfare tasks being carried out by the Sikhs across the world.

In commemoration of the 550th birthday celebrations of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, these Sikh bikers had started their pilgrimage from Surrey (Canada) to Gurdwara Sri Ber Sahib (Sultanpur Lodhi) on April 3.

They also stopped at the Gent and Sint-Truiden Gurdwaras in Belgium
