    In a break through decision, the Jathedar of Takhat Sri Patna Sahib Singh Sahib Bhai Iqbal Singh Ji, has issued a Hukamnama stating the following:

    In the Hukamnama regards the Nanakshahi calendar, Bhai Iqbal Singh has totally rejected the Nanakshahi Calendar telling the Sikh Sangat that in 2009 to celebrate Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Avtaar Purb on the 3rd January 2009 according to the old calendar instead of 5th January according to the Nanakshahi Calendar.

    Nitnem Banian: The Hukamnama states that Banian should be read to Puraatan Maryada. The entire 40 Paurian in Sri anand Sahib in Nitnem should be read & not just 6 Paurian. The Nitnem should be read as 5 (Panj Banian) and NOT 2 or 3.

    Mool Mantar should be recited to "Nanak Hosi Bhi Sach".

    In the evening the Rehraas Sahib (Full Rehraas Sahib) Puraatan Maryada implemented by Shaheed Bhai Mani Singh Ji at Sri Harmandir Sahib, but this was changed at the times of the Mahant's, (shortened) but then re-instated to the Puraatan Maryada at Darbar Sahib by Singh Sahib Bhai Jasvir Singh Khalsa Rode (Former Jathedar Sri Akal Takhat Sahib) after 1984, but now again these have been changed again and shortened (as you see and hear on Alpha Punjabi Granthi Singh's ony read shortened Rehraas Sahib).

    Every Sangraand should be according to the old Calendar not the new Nanakshahi Calendar.

    Damdami Taksal Chief Sant Baba Harnam Singh Khalsa has supported the Jathedar's move to re-instate the old Sikh Traditions, but the Patna Sahib Management board has suspended Jathedar Bhai Iqbal Singh.

    Jathedar of Sri Akal Takhat Sahib Bhai Joginder Singh Vedanti has called a emergency meeting of the 5 Singh Sahibaan's in the next few days, and it seems that they will move to ex-communicate Bhai Iqbal Singh Ji from the Sikh 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!
