Last two Guru Granth Sahib reaches India from Afghanistan
The last two 'Saroops' of the Guru Granth Sahib have arrived from Afghanistan's Kabul in Delhi and will now be taken to a Gurdwara. Three Afghan Sikhs have arrived with the last 2 Saroops of Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, the process of bringing back the symbols of faith and heritage associated with Sikhism is going on continuously. As a result, the last two versions of Guru Granth Sahib were brought to Delhi.
Manjeet Singh GK, the JAGO-Jag Aasra Guru Ott and the former president of DSGPC said that all religious heritage is being brought back in view of the prevailing situation in Afghanistan after the coming of Taliban rule.
"These last two versions of Guru Granth Sahib were left there. We had tried to bring them earlier also. But, at that time Taliban had stopped it in view of technical aspects," he added.
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee has borne all the expenses of bringing them from there and if anyone wants to come further, the committee will continue to cooperate.
Manjeet Singh further said, "After the intervention of the Government of India and talks between the two governments, today it has become possible that we have been able to bring back both the formats."
