AGPC warns against change in Nanakshahi calendar


Amritsar, February 15
The American Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (AGPC) convener, Dr Pritpal Singh, today said that the Sikh diaspora would not tolerate any change in the Nanakshahi calendar.

Talking to The Tribune from the USA on telephone, AGPC convener said that Nanakahshi calendar was part of the Sikh community’s distinct identity. He said every religion has its own calendar and it was after a long time that the Sikh community prepared its distinct calendar.

He urged Akal Takht Jathedar not to succumb to any pressure to alter the historical dates as given in the Nanakshahi calendar.

He alleged that the AGPC had learnt that the Sikh high priests were contemplating to make some changes in the Nanakshahi calendar with a view to pleasing certain forces, which would not be acceptable. He announced that the AGPC would continue to observe all historical dates as per the original Nanakshahi calendar.

Strange why date alone has all this mess.
