    Priests may give more time to Darshan Singh

    Amritsar, January 28


    The Sikh high priests are likely to give some respite to Prof Darshan Singh, who was declared a tankhaiya for his controversial discourse at Rochester in the USA, allowing him more time to appear in person and explain his position during their crucial meeting to be held here on Friday.



    The high priests have to decide now whether to excommunicate Prof Darshan Singh from the Sikh Panth or not. The issue will come up for discussion among the high priests, led by Akal Takht Jathedar Gurbachan Singh at the meeting which is scheduled to start at Akal Takht around 11.30 am.


    Though Giani Gurbachan Singh was silent on the agenda of the meeting and particularly about the fate of Prof Darshan Singh, sources pointed out that though the high priests were in a mood to take stern action against the former Jathedar, they were likely to give some more time to him. The time was likely to be not more than a week or so. “A decision is to be taken by the Jathedars in a collective manner,” said Giani Gurbachan Singh while talking to The Tribune.


    Meanwhile, in an outburst against the Sikh clergy and the top management of the SGPC, Prof Darshan Singh made it clear that he was a follower of Guru Granth Sahib and not of the Jathedars who were equating the Dasm Granth with Guru Granth Sahib. “The welfare of the Sikh Panth can be expected from true followers of Guru Granth Sahib and not from those who were out to follow the orders of their political masters. The Panth has to decide about me. I want to propogate the Khalsa Panth,” said Prof Darshan Singh in a statement.

    Prof Darshan Singh was excommunicated today. PTC News reported.
    This has effectively split the Panth as a vast majority rejects this edict just as the Nankshai edict remains rejected.
