It is notable that Gurdwara Gyan Godri was a historic Sikh shrine at Haridwara that marked the memory of Guru Nanak Sahib Ji’s visit to the place and signified the rejection of superstitious rituals by Guru Sahib. The Gurdwara Sahib was destroyed during November 1984 genocidal violence against the Sikhs.

A representative of All India Sikh Conference told Sikh Siaysat News (SSN) that Sikh were not allowed to celebrate the Prakash Utsav of Shri Guru Nanak Dev Maharaj Ji at Gurdwara Sri Gyan Godri Saheb at Haridwar ‘Har ki Pauri’.

“Hundreds of Children, Ladies and Old People have also been detained by the Police” he added.

Sikhs have been demanding the reconstruction of Gurdwara Sahib at it’s original place but he Indian state and administration is denying permissions to do so.
