This is hence another big news for the followers of Sikhism and people on both sides of the border.

The announcement was made on behalf of the vice chancellor Prof Dr Niaz Ahmad by Dean Faculty of Oriental Learning Prof Dr Saleem Mazhar at international seminar organized by PU Department of Punjab at Sherani Hall, Old Campus here on Wednesday.

Former  scholars from country and abroad, faculty members and large number of students were present on the occasion. Addressing the seminar, the speakers highlighted the teachings of Baba Guru Nanak and said that he preached peace and tolerance in society. He said that Baba Guru Nanak faced difficulties to set examples for others.

While giving his presidential address, Justice (r) Syed Afzal Haider said, “We are thankful to Baba Guru Nanak Ji for spreading the ideology of Islam in his teachings. However, we are the rebels of Baba Nanak, Baba Farid and Baba Buleh Shah and other Punjab Sufis as we cannot speak Punjabi in our provincial assembly.” He said, on the other hand, Sindhis, Pushtoons and Balochis prefer speaking their own languages.

Mr. Safeer Rama, a guest from the US, said Kartarput has historic and religious significance because Baba Guru Nanak spent 17 years there to spread his teachings.

Sardar Bawa Sigh said Pakistanis were very fortunate as they have Kartarpur and Nankana Sahis like holy places.

PU Oriental College Principal Prof. Dr. Fakharul Haq Noori said that border was not lines but big walls and there must be doors in there walls to facilitate the people living on the both sides. “We must distribute and spread love instead of taking sides with the enmity.

The Sikh delegates expressed their heart-out feelings about Pakistan especially due to the opening of Kartarpur border for them.

In the end PU Punjabi Department Chairperson Prof Dr Nabila Eijaz thanked the guests and expressed her feeling in poetic verses which means: Now we will give love and take love instead of hate and enmity as there is no loss in spreading love.

Dr. Khawja Zakriya, Dr. Zahid Munir Aamer, faculty members and a large number students were also present on this occasion.

Later, Sufi Sangat was organized at Al-Raazi Hall in which Sufiana Kalam and a skit was presented reflecting the teachings of Baba Guru Nanak and Sufis.
