    Sikh activist opposes Golden Temple listing in radio interview
    17th September, 2004


    [​IMG] A potentially big rift within the world-wide Sikh community was highlighted today when a senior community activist expressed his worry that the Golden Temple in Amritsar, India, was in danger of being lost control of. In an interview with the BBC Asian Network he said he was opposed to the shrine being designated a world heritage site.

    The Golden Temple is being considered for inclusion on the UN's list of the world's most important places. But human rights activist Dr Jasdev Singh Rai, speaking on the Breakfast show with Gagan Grewal, said the move would put the holiest of Sikh shrines into the hands of the Indian government.

    It would, as Sikhs have to ask fopr permission for every single small thing happening
    Sarbat Khalse for example - if Sikhs wnt it Goi can plainly say 'NO' n Sikhs can't do nohign about it
    this si compromising of the authority of Akal Takht Sahib highest court of the Sikhs - we do not ned the permission of some external party to help ourselves....
