CHANDIGARH: Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to declare the 550th Parkash Parb of Guru Nanak Dev as National Tolerance Day, an official said on Monday.

Singh wrote a letter Modi seeking that the auspicious day be declared National Tolerance Day for the re-dedication of people to Guru Nanak Dev's message of love, compassion and tolerance, according to a government spokesperson.

Since the teachings of the first Sikh guru are as relevant today as they were in his times, the 550th Parkash Utsav of Sri Guru Nanak Dev, to be observed on November 12, should be declared as National Tolerance Day as a befitting tribute to the great Master, said the Chief Minister.

He suggested that the birth anniversary of the first Guru be observed in this manner every year thereafter.
