    Jatehdar Akal Takht speaks against female foeticide

    Thursday, 27 October 2011 23:42 JAGMOHAN SINGH | AMRITSAR

    Jathedar Akal Takht (Highest Sikh Temporal Seat) Gyani Gurbachan Singh has asked the Sikh Community to take firm stand against female foeticide.

    The Jathedar said that everybody should stand united to face menace like female foeticide and drug addiction among unemployed youths in Punjab. On his Diwali message, the Jathedar said that one should understand the meanings and guidance of holy Guru Granth Sahib in life to remain stable and balanced to lead dignified life with high character.

    Asking the Punjab Government to take stern action against the accused who were found extending disrespect to Granth Sahib, he said such people must be booked under section 302 of IPC on murder charges to prevent sacrilegious acts, he added.

    That is so little so late. Someone willing to listen (AND to act) on what the Jathedar says is like someone in India waiting for the PM/President speech for Independence Day!
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!
