Lahore University Professor Tells Students To Familiarize With Kartarpur Sahib’s History and Importance

LAHORE, Pakistan—Dr. Nadhra Shahbaz Khan, Professor at the Lahore University of Management Sciences, asked all students that they needed to be familiar with the importance and history of Gurdwara Sri Kartarpur Sahib situated in the district Narowal.

Dr. Nadra told her students that the interest in Kartarpur Sahib was increasing globally and all her students, including non-Sikhs, needed to do more to learn about the importance of the shrine to Pakistan.

“The non-Sikh students of Pakistani schools and colleges are unaware of the historical importance and history of Gurdwara Sri Kartarpur Sahib and they go there only to see the Gurdwara Sahib building and get their pictures clicked instead of paying obeisance at Sri Gurdwara Sahib,” she told Sikh24.

“There’s so much about the importance of the shrine and we don’t understand fully.”

Dr. Nadhra Khan’s primary area of research and interest is 19th Century Sikh Art and Architectural Ornament in Pakistan Punjab, but she also focuses on Mughal Art and Architecture (16th to 18th century). Her work emphasizes the significance of the Sikh period as the last episode of centuries-old indigenous art and architectural tradition before the annexation of Punjab by the British in 1849 that changed, among other things, the visual culture of Punjab forever.
