The Hush Post, BHAINI SAHIB/KOHARA: Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa, Minister of Rural Development and Panchayats, Water Supply and Sanitation on Monday said that Satguru Ram Singh Ji, the founder of Namdhari Sect, had not only contributed for the freedom of the country but had played an important role to eradicate the social evils from the society.
He said that the sacrifices made by Kuka martyrs under the leadership of Satguru Ram Singh Ji will remain an inspiration who had used non-cooperation as the political weapon against the British Rule successfully.
This was stated by Bajwa while addressing a gathering in a state level function at Bhaini Sahib held on the 203rd birth anniversary of Satguru Ram Singh Ji on Monday.
Following the path of non-violence as showed by Sikh Masters, Satguru Ram Singh Ji boycotted the facilities and goods offered by British Government, told Bajwa and added the non-cooperation movement started by Satguru Ram Singh Ji was also adopted by other eminent freedom fighters like Mahatma Gandhi.
He said that a real tribute to Satguru Ram Singh Ji would be to follow the path shown by him and appealed the people to emulate his basic ideology to bring transformation in the society.
Bajwa informed the gathering that Capt Amarinder Singh personally wanted to come here to pay his respects to Satguru Ram Singh Ji but he could not attend the function due to some compelling circumstances. He claimed that Captain Amarinder, however, assured that State Government would make all our efforts to fulfill the demands.
Keeping in view of religious feeling of the people attached to Namdhari Sect, Bajwa said that the state government would soon make the arrangement of potable canal water and the work of new hockey astroturf will start before March 31.
The Minister also assured that the history related to Namdhari Sect, would be written again if needed and this would be preserved in the museum and libraries of the state.
