It is notable that Uttrakhand police had arrested the Sikhs Jatha heading towards Haridwar to observe Parkash Gurpurb of Guru Nanak Sahib.

Baba Baljeet Singh Daduwal said the ban imposed by Uttrakhand government was a reminder that Sikhs were treated as slaves in India.

It is a historic fact that Guru Nanak Sahib had held a dialogue with Hindu Pandits at Haridwar and a Sikh Gurudwara Sahib named Gian Godri Sahib was established near Har Ki Pauri at Haridwar in the memory of visit of Guru Nanak Sahib. This Gurudwara was demolished during November 1984 Sikh genocide.

Baba Baljeet Singh Daduwal and Bhai Gurcharan Singh Babbar are campaigning to secure the rebuilt of Gurudwara Gian Godri Shaib.
