    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.

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!
