    AMRITSAR: It may be the season of gifts, but a lavish offer extended by a Canadian Sikh to the Akal Takht jathedar has got the community all tied up in moral knots. So will the Rs 20-lakh diamond-studded brooch sent by NRI Kehar Singh become a part of attire of the Akal Takht jathedar?

    Sikh scholars, already into a heated debate about the gift, are likely to hold a meeting soon to decide on the issue. The congregation will also ascertain whether the brooch is a personal gift to the jathedar, Joginder Singh Vedanti or should be considered SGPC property.

    Vedanti's personal assistant Jasbir Singh told TOI that the brooch was with the jathedar. The Takht secretariat has sought details from Kehar Singh on the weight of diamonds and its worth. Former jathedar of Akal Takht Bhai Ranjit Singh said devotees from abroad often sent gifts but always mentioned whether they were for personal use of the Jathedar or for the institution.
