Two centuries old Gurdwara Sahib reopened in Pakistan after 73 years

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—After 73 years of Indo-Pak partition, more than two centuries old Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha has been reopened in Balochistan’s capital Quetta. Now, the Sikh sangat can go to pay obeisance at this Gurdwara Sahib anytime.

Notably, the building of this Gurdwara Sahib was being used by the Education Department for running a government school. The Sikhs residing in Quetta were demanding reopening of this Gurdwara Sahib for a long time.

Last year, Jasbir Singh had moved a petition in the Balochistan High Court seeking evacuation of the Gurdwara Sahib’s building. After this, the Sikh sangat was given the charge of Gurdwara Sahib on March 1 this year.

Now, the holy saroop of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji has been installed in this Gurdwara Sahib after completion of some renovation and construction work with the help of Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee.
