I'm having trouble knowing what this question has to do with the topic of Nihangs in 1984, so I just created a new topic for it. First of all, Bikrami is not much in use anymore, it's just either the Nanakshahi calendar published by the SGPC, or the so-called "original Nanakshahi" calendar favored by Ragi Darshan Singh. Anyways, regarding the 4 major events commemorated by Sikhs, Google reveals: 1) Guru Nanak ji's prakash. Celebrated by AKJ on Kattak Puranmashi, in accordance with Nanakshahi calendar. 2) Guru Gobind Singh ji's prakash. According to the Nanakshahi calendar, falls on Poh Sudi Saptmi. Celebrated on that day by AKJ: 3) Holla Mohalla. If you've ever attended Holla at Anandpur Sahib, you know that everbody (jathas, sants, Sukhmani Sahib Seva Societies, missionaries) celebrates on the day after Holi in accordance with Nanankshahi calendar. 4) Baisakhi. Celebrated by the entire panth on the same day. Additionally, this link states Dushera is celebrated annually in Delhi by the AKJ as a major smagam. Obviously that would be on whatever day the Hindus celebrate Dushera.
The RSS parent body of the BJP have officially stated India is Hindu country and all other religions need to convert to Hindus. Even though they mention Muslims and Christians for conversion the RSS feel they have enough of a grip over Sikhs to call them Hindu already. Many of the cults and sanatan Nihangs, Sikh organisations under there control and follow the RSS orders. The bad thing is that only a small number of Sikhs have woken up to this serious threat. http://indianexpress.com/article/india/politics/bhagwat-dares-oppn-says-if-dont-like-conversion-bring-law-against-it/ RSS leader Mohan Bhagwat justifies ghar wapsi, says will bring back our brothers who have lost their way RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at a religious event in Haridwar on Friday.

(PTI Photo) Written by Madhuparna Das | Kolkata | Posted: December 21, 2014 4:40 am | Updated: December 21, 2014 10:21 am Justifying the ghar wapsi (reconversion) campaign of Sangh affiliates, RSS sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat said Saturday that those opposed to religious conversion should agree to bring in a law against the practice. Without naming Islam or Christianity, he said we will bring back our brothers who have lost their way and belongings stolen by a thief. He also called India a Hindu Rashtra. Addressing a Virat Hindu Sammelan in Kolkata to mark the golden jubilee of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bhagwat said: Hindus do not believe in conversion. If anyone fears that Hindus are resorting to conversion, let there be a legislation in Parliament to stop this practice. Hindus do not want to change anybody. If you do not want anybody to convert, then do not convert Hindus too. Referring to ghar wapsi, he said: Bhule bhatke jo bhai gaye hain, unko wapas layenge. Woh log apne aap nahin gaye, unko loot kar, lalach de kar le kar gaye Abhi chor pakda gaya hai. Mera maal chor ke paas hai. Aur yeh duniya jaanti hai. Mein apna maal wapas loonga, yeh kaunsi badi baat hai (We will bring back our brothers who have lost their way. They did not go on their own. They were robbed, tempted into leaving Now the thief has been caught and the world knows my belongings are with the thief. I will retrieve my belongings, so why is this such a big issue). Bhagwat told the gathering the world was helpless suffering because of crimes perpetrated from Pakistani soil and by Bangladeshi infiltrators. Only the Hindus, he said, could put a stop to these atrocities. We should not be scared. Why should we be afraid? We are not infiltrators. We are not foreigners. This is our motherland. This is our country. This is a Hindu Rashtra. We will not run away from our country. We will stay here and we will regain what was lost and stolen from us. We have to stay awake and stay active. The Hindu society is waking up, he said. Partition in 1947 led to the breaking up of Bharat and creation of Pakistan. But do not think it is permanent. In Pakistan, there is much misery and suffering now. There is some amount of peace and prosperity in Bharat. That is because the Hindus are here and they will emerge stronger to bring welfare to the whole world. If Hindus are not there, every community in the world will suffer, Bhagwat said, adding you will witness the change as Hindus rise. Earlier, Pravin Togadia of the VHP mounted an attack on Muslim infiltrators and said Hindus should practice Hinduism to survive the Islamic onslaught. Not one Hindu should be allowed to be converted. My appeal to leaders like Mulayamji (SPs Mulayam Singh Yadav) is that if they do not support conversion, continued
