PREFACE: At present the remote control of the Punjab Government, Shromani Akali Dal (SAD) and Akal Takht is in the hands of Sukhbir Badal. Mean while we the Sikhs have a total vacuum in our religious / spiritual field ! The fact is that Vedanti & Makkar (& SGPC) are total "chumchas" of Badals ! The Badals are playing the British game with the Sikhs: "DIVIDE & RULE" ! Now there is a fork in the road ahead ( FUTURE ) for the Sikhs. Will they ever choose and harness the 'high road" and get rid of the "implosive forces" and stop blaming the so called outsiders when the "ROT" is within ? How can we achieve this goal / aim / objective in a positive, concrete and united way ? How can we "re-new and re-focus" the Sikhs ? Humbly, Harbhajan S. Sangha BACK GROUNDER: Sikh radicals forced Vedanti to leave Balkar Singh's bhog ceremony JAGMOHAN SINGH - PunjabnewslineSunday, 06 July 2008 AMRITSAR : Piquant situation arose on Sunday at Village Jamarai, falling in the district Tarn Taran nearly 30 kilometers away from Amritsar when a strong group of radicals interrupted the Vedanti’s address and forced him to leave the function before it concludes.
