Akali Dal protests outside Arvind Kejriwal’s residence

New Delhi: Akali Dal workers on Friday staged a protest outside Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence to press their demand for declaring a holiday on Guru Tegh Bahadur’s martyrdom day on November 24.

Guru Tegh Bahadur was martyred in Chandni Chowk area of Delhi on the orders of the then Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in the month of November 1675.

Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) had last year petitioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi to announce changing the name of Aurangzeb road in Delhi after Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib’s name as a tribute to him on his martyrdom anniversary.

“We have also demanded that Guru Teg Bahadur’s martyrdom day be declared a gazetted holiday across the country, so that message of universal brotherhood given by Guru reaches every corner of the country” DSGMC president Manjit Singh GK had said.
