CHANDIGARH: Leg­is­la­tor and Delhi Sikh Gu­rud­wara Man­age­ment Committee (DSGMC) gen­eral sec­re­tary Man­jin­der Singh Sirsa on Tues­day urged Haryana chief min­is­ter Manohar Lal Khat­tar to in­clude chap­ters on Sikh Guru Tegh Ba­hadur and Baba Banda Singh Ba­hadur in the ed­u­ca­tion syl­labus of the state.

In a let­ter writ­ten to Khat­tar, Sirsa said he was shocked to know that chap­ters on Guru Tegh Ba­hadur have been ex­cluded from school syl­labus of the Haryana School Ed­u­ca­tion Board.

He said it has hurt the sen­ti­ments of the Sikh com­mu­nity as the guru sac­ri­ficed his life to save Kash­miri pan­dits.

Sirsa said it was un­for­tu­nate that the de­ci­sion has come at a time when Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi or­dered the NCERT and other ed­u­ca­tion boards to in­clude chap­ters on ‘Chaar Sahibzade’ - Guru Gobind Singh’s four sons - in the syl­labus. He urged Khat­tar to ur­gently order to in­clude the chap­ters in the Haryana school syl­labus. Sirsa also urged the CM to in­clude a chap­ter on Baba Banda Singh Ba­hadur in the ed­u­ca­tion syl­labus.
