    Neither I will appear before Singh Sahiban, nor obey “Tankhaaiya” punishment: Darshan Singh

    PHAGWARA: Former Jathedar of Shri Akal Takhat Sahib Prof Darshan Singh reiterated his stand that neither he will appear before Singh Sahiban on January 7,nor will obey any “Tankhaa” religious punishment in the ongoing controversy on “Dasham Granth”.

    Talking to newsmen after participating in a reigeous congregation organized by Shri Guru Teg Bahadur Sports & Welfare Society at nearby village Palahai on Tuesday evening, he alleged that SAD was playing in the hands of RSS and went on dividing the panth due to their hatred politics.

    Former Jathedar alleged that Jathedars of some Takhats including Shri Akal Takhat Sahib, and Shiromani Gurdwara Parbhandhak Committee were playing in the hands of the Shiromani Akali Dal headed by Badal Family, and Singh Sahibans were holding their meetings and decisions in closed doors rooms while according to sikh religious traditions, all religious issues brought before Shri Akal Takhat should be heard and decide in the presence of Sikh Sangats openly.

    Replying a question, Prof Darshan Singh again alleged that some Anti-Panth elements were actively working to divide the Sikh Panth under the cover of reviving the controversy on Dasham Granth, which was untolerable.He said that “Dasham Granth” was not exclusively written by Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj,while several objectionable literature was added in the Granth.

    Prof Darshan Singh said a panel of Intellectuals should be formed to analyse and examine the Dasham Granth. He dared to challenge Akal Takhat Sahib present Jathedar to openly participate a “Debate on the Issue” before electronic media to bring the truth as healthy debate could be useful to reach upto the real situation.

    He alleged that politicalisation of Religeon was being done by Badal family which would be most harmful for the Sikh Quam. He strongly advocated present Nanak Shahi Calender and opposed the move of any amendment in it, but alleged that Badal& Co were becoming tool in the hands of RSS and other Hindu Fundamentalists which were unnecessarily intervening in the internal matters of Sikhs.

    He alleged that Badal family promoted “Dera Culture” only to strengthen their vote banks without bothering the interests of Sikhs.

    When asked about elections of SGPC, Prof Darshan Singh said every Sikh obeying complete Maryada of the Panth should be allowed to participate in SGPC elections.

    He however also alleged that Badals had remained fail to bring anand Karaj act to make the Sikhs able to solemnize their marriages according to Sikh traditions.Former Head Granthi of Takhat Shri Keshgarh Sahib Bhai Ranjodh Singh, Organiser Sat Parkash were also present on the occasion.

    It's about time someone with the Sikhi courage would show the defiance against those who hold the power and engage in anti Gurmat acts. These honchos sitting crossed legs on their high chairs should be made to realise what true Gurmat values are and if they can not follow the teachings of our only Guru which is the SGGS, then they are the ones who are the Tankheiyas.

    There is a hope that this brave Sikhi act by Prof. Sahib will steer all of us towards Gurmat so that we can stop acting out of sheer ego and political pressure and are able to speak out against those who abuse power.

    Sikhi was founded on this when Babar was the Mughal King. This time it happens to be some with the Sikhi garb but with the mentality of the Mughals of yesteryears.
