Patiala, December 26

Thousands of devotees pay homage to the youngest children of Guru Gobind Singh on the first day of the Shaheedi Sabha here on Thursday. The three-day annual Shaheedi Sabha is held to commemorate the martyrdom of the 10th Sikh Guru’s youngest sons Zorawar Singh and Fateh Singh, who were bricked alive during the regime of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.

The event began with an “akhand path” of the Guru Granth Sahib at the historic Gurdwara Jyoti Swarup, where the Sahibzadas were cremated. The devotees also paid homage to Mata Gujri, mother of the 10th Sikh guru.

They paid obeisance at the historic “Thanda Burj” (cold tower), Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib and Gurdwara Jyoti Swarup besides taking a dip in holy tanks. On Friday, religious functions will be held.

On the concluding day (December 28), a ‘nagar kirtan’ will be taken out from Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib to Gurdwara Jyoti Swarup. Deputy Commissioner Amrit Kaur Gill said the administration had made all the arrangements for a smooth conduct of the three-day event.

SSP Amneet Kondal said the area had been divided into five sectors. She said 11 SPs, 26 DSPs and 2,500 police personnel, along with NCC volunteers, had been deployed. For the first time, 200 high-definition CCTV cameras had been installed and an IPS officer had been told to monitor these, she said
