New Delhi, Jan. 9 (Delhi Crown): Every year December 26 shall be observed as “Veer Baal Diwas” to mark the martyrdom of Sahibzada Zorawar Singh and Sahibzada Fateh Singh, announced Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday on the occasion of Parkash Purab of Sri Guru Gobind Singh.
“Today, on the auspicious occasion of the Parkash Purab of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, I am honoured to share that starting this year, 26th December shall be marked as ‘Veer Baal Diwas.’ This is a fitting tribute to the courage of the Sahibzades and their quest for justice,” tweeted the PM.
In another tweet, he added – “Veer Baal Diwas will be on the same day Sahibzada Zorawar Singh Ji and Sahibzada Fateh Singh Ji attained martyrdom after being sealed alive in a wall. These two greats preferred death instead of deviating from the noble principles of Dharma.”
The PM further stated that the bravery and ideals of Mata Gujri, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji and the 4 Sahibzades give strength to millions of people.
“They never bowed to injustice. They envisioned a world that is inclusive and harmonious. It is the need of the hour for more people to know about them,” he added.
