Amritsar: Sticking to the original version of
Nanakshahi calendar, radical Sikh groups on Thursday celebrated the
birth anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh.

The SGPC-managed gurdwaras celebrated the birth
anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh on December 31.
Radical Sikhs, including Dal Khalsa activists, gathered
at village Rajdhan, 35-km from here, and observed the day with
great fervour.

Addressing the gathering, the speakers urged the Akal
Takht, the highest temporal seat of the Sikhs, to revert to
the original calendar.

Celebrating the Gurpurab, the Dal Khalsa activists vowed
to stick to the original version adopted by the Khalsa
community in 2003.
