The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) today announced to launch a movement to spread the knowledge of Sikh history among the Sikh community as well as others.
DSGMC general secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa said Guru Harkrishan Public (GHP) Schools, being run by the DSGMC, should include Sikh history in their school curriculum.
Sirsa has written a letter to all principals of the GHP Schools to include Sikh history books in their school curriculum to make students aware about the history of the community.
He asked the school authorities to collect relevant information and prepare history curriculum within 45 days.
“The curriculum should have detailed history of Parkash Utsav of gurus, Sikh commanders and their achievements,” said Sirsa.
The DSGMC will organise seminars about Sikh history so that people and school students can develop interest.
“Sikhism is very important as the community has played significant role in the freedom movement of the country. It is the community that had fought against Mughal emperor's tyranny,” he said.

writing Jokes and they are doing it to earn money.
