    Former Jathedar of the Akal Takht, Prof Darshan Singh Khalsa has formed a new organisation named ‘Guru Panth Da Khalsa Panth’.

    Elaborating the purpose of the organisation Prof Darshan Singh Khalsa has said the he wants to break the political hegemony established over Akal Takht, which is eroding the Sikhs’ main temporal seat. While claiming to be non-political, Prof Darshan Singh says his organisation plans to work to bring Akal Takht to its lost glory. In PRIME Debate, we discuss how relevant is this development in Sikh circles and can politics to kept out of religion?

    Prof Darshan Singh alone cannot break the vicious circle of use of religion for political gains. Sikhs are silently watching the denigration. May God help the Sikhs to realise and rise!

    Exactly..most sikhs just watch...as they did in Chandni Chowk...!!
    ON FB there is a Group with over 32,000 members..and when the time came to stand up and be counted..only 3 did !! All the rest just visit..press LIKE..and pass on BY...sad.
    This is also why a tiny MINORITY of TROUBLE MAKERS can impose their will on large sangats...because everyone says..MAINU KEE...?? Karee jaan..apeh Guur Jaanugah..etc etc..
