NAGAON, Nov 10 - Governor Jagdish Mukhi inaugurated an exhibition yesterday on the life and ideology of Guru Nanak which was organised in sync with his 550th birth anniversary at Nagaon Police Reserve field.
The exhibition was centrally organised by the Press Information Bureau (PIB) in collaboration with Nagaon district administration and Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee of Nagaon.
Addressing the gathering at the inaugural function, Mukhi said when Srimanta Sankaradeva and Guru Nanak took birth, the society during those times was crippled with various social evils like murder, violence, classification among the people, untouchablity etc. Amidst such social evils, both Sankaradeva and Nanak preached the ideology of love, peace and brotherhood among all in the society.
Mukhi said that Guru Nanak had a number of disciples of both Hindu and Muslim faith.
Mukhi was accompanied by his wife Prem Mukhi during the trip.
Nagaon Deputy Commissioner Jadav Saikia, Superintendent of Police Shankarbrata Raimedhi and Joint Director of PIB Kriti Tiwari, among others, were present on the occasion, besides office-bearers of the Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee.
Earlier, Mukhi visited Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara at Nagaon Fouzdaripatty where he inaugurated the newly-constructed Langar Hall.
