Sikh Gurus in UP school curriculum

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in December said the supreme sacrifices made by the Sikh Gurus should be made a part of the state curriculum so that the students could take inspiration from it and contribute to nation building. The Chief Minister, who was speaking on the occasion of ‘Sahibzada Diwas’ at his official residence on Sunday, said, “The ‘Khalsa Panth’ has played a stellar role in protecting the Hindu religion and the country and our present and coming generations must be told that our religion and the country is safe because of the ‘Khalsa Panth’.”
Adityanath said the sacrifices of the four sons of Guru Gobind Singh would be an inspiration for the coming generations, as they sacrificed themselves to protect Hindus and the country. The sacrifices of Baba Ajit Singh, Baba Jujhar Singh, Baba Zorawar Singh and Baba Fateh Singh needed to be known to all, the CM added. “I suggest to the state Education Minister to include the role of Sikh Gurus into the curriculum. We celebrate ‘Sahibzada Diwas’ on December 27 but I feel that this day is actually ‘Children’s Day’, as the Sahibzadas made the supreme sacrifice at such a tender age,” he said.
