    Sikh Conference announces formation of 'Darbar-e-Khalsa'

    Fatehgarh Sahib, Feb 26 (UNI) An organisation, 'Darbar-e-Khalsa' will be set up to guide the Sikh community and create social, religious, political and economic awareness among Sikhs.

    This decision was announced during the 'Virsa Sambhal Vishav Sikh Sammelan' held at Sirhind under the patronage of Damadami Taksal and Sant Samaj.

    'Darbar-e-Khalsa will comprise of Sikh scholars who will function under the patronage of a Chairman. Former Akal Takht Jathedar Jasbir Singh Rode will be the co-ordinator for setting up this organisation.

    'The announcement of the formation of the 'Darbar-e-Khalsa will be made on the occasion of Baisakhi.

    A member of the 'Darbar-e-Khalsa' will not contest in any election and this organisation would be purely dedicated for the betterment of the Sikh community.

    The gathering at the Sammelan was impressive with representatives of Sant Samaj and Damdami Taksal making their presence felt.

    There was no direct criticism of any political leader including Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief Parkash Singh Badal, who did not attend the conference. The Congress was criticised on various fronts and at one point the SAD leadership also came under attack on the issue of ineffective debate on terrorism in Punjab Assembly session.

    Mostly social issues related with Sikhs were discussed during the function. The issue of separate Calendar for the Sikhs was also raised in the function.

    During the sammelan, representatives of Sant Samaj stressed that all out efforts should be made to bring about improvement in the social, economical, educational and religious spheres to make the Sikhs prosperous. A call was also given to Sikh leaders to sink their petty individual differences and to join hands for the cause of Sikhism.

    While addressing the gathering Damdami Taksal chief Harnam Singh Khalsa said the function was not organized for criticising any individual or group. The function was held to discuss challenges faced by the Sikh community, he said.

    He said the Sammelan was a way to check deterioration in Sikh values and principles and to make efforts to maintain their separate identity.The Taksal chief suggested that to make Sikhism popular a Sikh TV channel should be started .

    IF this Darbare Khalsa is UNDER the Akal Tkahat...then its OK....IF it aims to be an INDEPENDENT BODY..then its just another attempt to DIVIDE the SIKHS and will likely fail..as have many others . We MUST not forget that this same SANT SAMAJ have published and printed their own separate SANT SAMAJ REHAT MARYADA..which is at VARIANCE with the Established Akal Takhat approved Sikh rehat maryada of the Guru Khalsa Panth.

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!
