New Delhi: The last two ‘Saroops’ of the Guru Granth Sahib arrived in India from Afghanistan recently, a country currently ruled by the Taliban.

He was then taken to a Gurudwara here.

Three people have arrived from Kabul with the last 2 Saroops of Sri Guru Granth Sahib, reports ANI.

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.

“These last two versions of Guru Granth Sahib were left there. We had tried to bring them earlier also. But, at that time Taliban had stopped it in view of technical aspects,” he added.

President of Indian World Forum, Puneet Singh Chandhok told ANI, a non-scheduled Kam Air flight, organised by Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee Amritsar is to arrive in Delhi from Kabul today.
