Punjabi Suba movement

Punjabi Suba movement is a political agitation that was launched by the Sikhs soon after the Indian independence. The objective of this movement is to create a Punjabi Suba or Punjabi speaking state in the post-independent Indian state of East Punjab. This movement resulted in the establishment of the state of Punjab. The state of Haryana and the Union Territory of Chandigarh were also created as the result of this movement.

This Shironmani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee has organised an event to commemorate the 1955 police action at the Golden Temple to contain the Punjabi Suba Movement. The raid happened after the Amritsar District Commissioner banned slogans of Punjabi Suba and Maha-Punjab.
