    SGPC head not to attend World Sikh Convention<hr class="fulstorydivider">

    Ludhiana, Mar 21 (PTI) Dubbing the World Sikh Convention to be held in Delhi next month as a politically-motivated exercise, SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar today said he would not attend the conference to be organised by the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee.

    "The only aim of this politically-motivated conference is to denigrate the importance of Akal Takht, the highest temporal institution of the Sikhs," he told reporters here.

    Makkar alleged the primary motive of the organisers was to rake up a controversy regarding the status of the Akal Takht "in one form or the other" and challenge its supremacy.

    "No true Sikh can ever tolerate such a thing," he said.

    The Amritsar-based SGPC, the apex religious body of the Sikhs, has often accused DSGMC head P S Sarna of playing into the hands of the Congress party.

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!
