Premier’s statement on Bandi Chhor Divas
Thursday, November 4, 2021 7:30 AM
Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement to mark Bandi Chhor Divas:
“Today, we join Sikh communities throughout British Columbia and around the world in celebrating Bandi Chhor Divas.
“On this day, Sikhs recall the release from prison of Guru Hargobind Sahib, the sixth Guru, who refused liberation unless 52 kings and princes, also held as prisoners, were freed with him.
“This is a time to remember the importance of respect, freedom and inclusion in our daily lives. This is also a time for prayer and contemplation, as we reflect on the obligation to help people around us, especially those less fortunate.
“As we continue to cope with a global pandemic, this year’s celebration will be different, though as joyous as ever. Coming together safely will mean slowing the spread of the virus and protecting those most vulnerable, including the elderly.
“On behalf of all British Columbians, I wish everyone celebrating a happy Bandi Chhor Divas.”
