Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today greeted the Punjabis living in India and across the globe, on the 347th 'Parkash Purb' of Guru Gobind Singh and exhorted them to follow the noble teachings and rich legacy of the great 'Saint Soldier'.
In a message on the auspicious 'Parkash Purb' of the tenth Guru of the Sikhs and the founder of the 'Khalsa Panth', the Chief Minister said Guru Gobind Singh preached and practiced the ethos of love, oneness of mankind and universal brotherhood throughout his life.
Mr Badal said the creation of the Khalsa by great Guru in 1699 had a universal relevance by which he raised a unifying force in the world ever ready to make self sacrifice for achieving the goals of justice, equality, social good and protection of human rights.
He called upon the people to unitedly strive hard for carving out an ideal and egalitarian society by treading on the path shown by Guru Gobind Singh and celebrate this sacred occasion rising above the parochial considerations of caste, colour and creed.
