New Delhi, October 29, 2018 — The Vice President of India, M. Venkaiah Naidu, has said that he salutes the valor, commitment and contribution of Sikhs to the humanity especially in the turbulent contemporary times of mistrust, prejudice and intolerance. He was addressing the gathering after releasing the book ‘Prominent Sikhs of India,’ authored by Dr. Prabhleen Singh and published by Panjab University Chandigarh, here today.

More than 100 distinguished Sikhs were present on occasion.

The Vice President said that the Book highlights the achievements of 50 living Sikh legends from various walks of life and it is a fitting tribute to the founder of Sikhism Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

The Vice President said that Guru Nanak Ji had made an immense contribution to this great nation with his commitment to serve the poorest of the poor, irrespective of caste creed and religion. He had laid the foundation to build a society whose primary duty lies in helping the people and participating in nation-building, he said. Sikhs have always shielded the nation whenever the need arose, he added.

The Vice President said that the youth must draw inspiration from the life and stories of great leaders who have made their mark. It is our essential duty to motivate the child to stay put in the nation and contribute to development, he added.

“I am happy that a young doctor, Prabhleen Singh, has put in much efforts to bring out the stories of valor, service and hard work of 50 great living Sikhs.

“I am sure this book will inspire and instill confidence in youth and encourage them to take the lead in scripting the country’s growth story.

“My compliments once again to Dr. Prabhleen Singh, and the publisher — Panjab University, Chandigarh — for bringing out the stories of great men and women!” Mr. Naidu said.
