Chandigarh: Chief Minister of Punjab Parkash Singh Badal released a book titled `Jini Sach Pachania`, a compilation of biographies of Sikh martyrs, written by Sikh scholar and former SGPC president Kirpal Singh Badungar.
"Badungar`s work had not only depicted the rich legacy of Sikhism, but also effectively propagated the ideology and the marshal spirit of Sikhism behind supreme sacrifices made by great Gurus," Badal said.
Appreciating Badungar for his intellect and deep insight of the Sikhs history, the Chief Minister said that with this book, the former SGPC chief had compiled the entire Sikh ideology and history in his set of four different books.
"This spirit would ever remain as the source of inspiration for our future generations to keep abreast them with the glorious traditions of Sikhism," the Chief Minister said.
Badungar had earlier authored three books `Gurmat Vichar te Sikhi Jivan`, `Gurmat Sabhiachar` and `Jinhan Dharam Nahin Haria`, an official release here quoting Badal said.
