    AMRITSAR: In a major setback to Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, which is yet to get religious approval, Akal Takht, the supreme
    religious body of Sikhs, on Wednesday held its president Jagdish Singh Jhinda and four others guilty of violating the Sikh code of conduct at Gurdwara Cheevin Patshashi in Kurukshetra.

    The Akal Takht will announce the punishment in its next meeting to be held after November 15, Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh said.

    In his reaction, Jhinda, while reiterating his resolve to continue the movement for a separate gurdwara committee for Haryana, said, "We welcome the decision, but it is confusing. If they hold us guilty, they should have pronounced atonement today."

    The HSGPC president, along with a faction of Sikhs from Haryana, has been accused of allegedly wresting control of the Kurukshetra-based gurdwara on September 13. The Akal Takht had asked HSGPC to submit a clarification on September 19.

    an old proverb says...You can force a horse to the river bank..but you cant make it drink...
    This Horse will not even be forced to the river bank...much less drink...the Jathedars have a lost cause...

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
