Leading Sikh body commemorates Muslim chief

AMRITSAR: Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) on Monday installed picture of Muslim chief Rai Kalha, shown receiving Ganga Sagar (pitcher) from 10th Sikh master Guru Gobind Singh at the Central Sikh Museum.

The unveiling ceremony was performed by Akal Takht jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh and Golden Temple head granthi Giani Jagtar Singh.
The ninth descendent of Rai Kahla, Rai Azizullah Khan, who is the custodian of Ganga Sagar didn’t attend the ceremony. In a letter written to SGPC president Kirpal Singh Badungar from Vancouver, Azizullah said since he was in Canada it was not possible for him to attend the function.
Later talking to media, Gurbachan Singh said Guru Gobind Singh had honoured Rai Kalha by gifting him a sword, Ganga Sagar and Rehal.
