Chandigarh, June 20:
The Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Sunday condoled the sad demise of the noted Sikh scholar and Professor of Sikhism Dr. Jodh Singh (70), who passed away at his residence in Patiala this afternoon after a brief illness. He is survived by his wife and a son.
In his condolence message, Captain Amarinder Singh described the former Professor of Punjabi University, Patiala Dr. Jodh Singh as an institution whose immense contribution as Editor-in-Chief of ‘Encyclopedia of Sikhism’ besides translation of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in Hindi and ‘Vaaran Bhai Gurdas Ji ‘ in English would be ever remembered by one and all. In the death of Dr. Jodh Singh, a void has been created in the Sikh literary circles which is difficult to be filled, he added.
Expressing his heartfelt sympathies with the bereaved family, relatives and friends, the Chief Minister prayed to the Almighty to grant courage to bear this irreparable loss in this hour of grief and eternal peace to the departed soul.
