Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, the process of bringing back the symbols of faith and heritage associated with Sikhism is going on continuously. As a result, the last two versions of Guru Granth Sahib were brought to Delhi, reports the Indian news agency.
Speaking to ANI, on this occasion, Manjeet Singh GK, the JAGO-Jag Aasra Guru Ott and the former president of DSGPC said that all religious heritage is being brought back in view of the prevailing situation in Afghanistan after the coming of Taliban rule.
