    AMRITSAR: Various Sikh organisations have requested Jathedar Akal Takht Gurbachan Singh to ensure that The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) and the Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) implement edict against Sirsa- based Dera Sacha Sauda ,in Punjab.


    The Akali Dal (Panj Pradhani), the Khalsa Action Committee, the Sikh Students Federation, the Dal Khalsa, Khalra Mission Organisation and the Sikhs for Human Rights made this request in a memorandum to the Jathedar here on Tuesday.


    General secretary, Akali Dal (Panch Pardhani) Harpal Singh Cheema said apart from Sikh sangat, the sikh political and religious organisations must be held accountable for implementing Akal Takht edict issued on May 20, 2007 directing all sikhs not to have relations with the Dera Sacha Sauda followers and all Naam Charcha Ghars be removed from Punjab.


    He informed the Jathedar assured to take up the demand at the meeting of the Sikh high priests scheduled to be held here on October 1. He claimed the Jathedar also said the present dispensation in the state was not a panthic government but a coalition with the BJP and added a panthic government would only be formed when all Sikh political organisations joined hands.


    He said unresolved Dera Sacha Sauda-Sikh issue was causing fissures in the families and rift in society in Malwa in general and Bathinda in particular.
    Convener of the Khalsa Action Committee (KAC), Bhai Mohkam Singh demanded a case under the Illegal Activity Prevention Act against Sanjiv Bhardwaj, Hindu Suraksha Samiti leader for ‘irresponsible’ statement .Bhardwaj had asked from the government to make it clear whether Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale was a terrorist or a sant and announced cash award of Rs 7 lakh to catch Jagtar Singh Hawara, who had escaped from prison.

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!
