In an effort to stop incidents of sacrilege of the holy book in the state, renowned environmentalist Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal has suggested to keep a tab on surroundings through parbat pheries (religious processions).

Religious processions are being organised at Sultanpur Lodhi to commence the upcoming Gurpurab (birth anniversary) of the first Sikh Guru Shri Guru Nanak Devji on November 25.

Seechewal, while addressing the gathering of hundreds of devotees gathered to pay obeisance, said that some anti-social elements are deliberately trying to create a divide among communities.

“We need to take this sensitive issue very carefully, so that anti-social elements couldn’t be successful in their mission,” he said.

People should keep vigil around the gurdwaras near them and if they find anything suspicious, they should immediately alert the people.
