Sri Guru Granth Sahib to be translated into Urdu

The Academy of Guru Granth Studies, USA, will help establish a research section in the Dyal Singh Library here. This was stated by academy president Dr Harbans Lal at a press conference at Lahore.

He said that the holy book of Sikhs would be translated into Urdu while research material would also be donated to the proposed section. The step, he said, was being taken to improve understanding between Muslim and Sikh communities. He was critical of historians who, he said, had committed blunders while reporting the Sikh history.
Denying that Sikh Gurus and Moghul rulers had enmity between them, he recalled that Akbar the Great had donated land for constructing the city of Amritsar whose foundation stone was laid by Hazrat Mian Mir of Lahore.
