Chandigarh: The Punjab government has withdrawn its decision to play condolence music (notes) during the ‘Shaheedi Sabha’ on December 27. In this event, devotees pay tribute to the incredible sacrifice of the sons of Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth guru of Sikhism.

What’s the whole deal?

Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann announced the withdrawal of the decision on Sunday. The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) had objected to the decision to play mourning music on the martyrdom day of the child ‘Sahibzada’, terming it against ‘Girmat Maryam’.

The SGPC demanded immediate withdrawal of the decision. SGPC President Harjinder Singh Dhami had earlier said that the martyrdom of the Sahibzades was a sign of the high spirit of protection of rights, truth and religion and not a tragic incident.

According to an official statement issued on Sunday, Chief Minister Mann said that to avoid any controversy on this holy day, the state government has decided to withdraw its decision to play condolence music on December 27. On Friday, Mann had said that condolence music would be played during the ‘Shaheedi Sabha’ on December 27. (input language)
