Around 200 mem­bers of the Sikh com­mu­nity cel­e­brated the first martyrdom of their re­li­gious or­gan­i­sa­tion last Sun­day in Lau­toka. Lau­toka Gu­rud­wara pres­i­dent Bayant Singh said the martyrdom was that of their fifth Guru Ar­jan Dev.

He said the cel­e­bra­tion was be­ing car­ried out around the world si­mul­ta­ne­ously. The cel­e­bra­tions saw mem­bers of the Sikh com­mu­nity from Si­ga­toka to Karavi at­tend the day-long cel­e­bra­tions. “Yes­ter­day we re­flected on our val­ues and be­liefs and made sure we prac­ticed this and main­tained dis­ci­pline,” Mr Singh said. He said the morn­ing was taken up with preach­ing and read­ing of the Holy Scrip­ture. This was fol­lowed by lunch for all those that at­tended. Edited by: Manasa Kalouniv­iti
