    Edit Against Religion (Professor Darshan Singh)

    A day after being excommunicated from the Sikh Panth, former Akal Takht Jathedar Prof Darshan Singh Ragi hit back at the five Sikh high priests calling them `tankhaiya (guilty of religious punishment)' for their "antiPanthic activities".

    "The Takht Patna Sahib and Takht Hazoor Sahib Jathedars are guilty of not following the maryada (religious code of conduct) ordained from the highest temporal seat of the Akal Takht. The remaining three Jathedars also deserve the same onus of blame for being hand in glove with them in all anticommunity activities. How can they issue an edict to excommunicate someone from Sikhism?" Prof Ragi said.

    He said the Sikhs would reject "this biased action" by the clergy against him. "Sikhs know that there are certain anti-religious forces behind the clergy who manage their actions with remote control," he said.

    Ragi said there had been occasions when the clergy had violated the Akal Takht directive by attending ceremonies in which the banned scripture, Dasam Granth, was adorned alongside Guru Granth Sahib.

    He said the clergy had misused their authority by effecting changes in the Nanakshahi Calendar.

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!
