There was no direct criticism of any political leader including Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief Parkash Singh Badal, who did not attend the conference. The Congress was criticised on various fronts and at one point the SAD leadership also came under attack on the issue of ineffective debate on terrorism in Punjab Assembly session.

Mostly social issues related with Sikhs were discussed during the function. The issue of separate Calendar for the Sikhs was also raised in the function.

While addressing the gathering Damdami Taksal chief Harnam Singh Khalsa said the function was not organized for criticising any individual or group. The function was held to discuss challenges faced by the Sikh community, he said.

He said the Sammelan was a way to check deterioration in Sikh values and principles and to make efforts to maintain their separate identity.The Taksal chief suggested that to make Sikhism popular a Sikh TV channel should be started .

IF this Darbare Khalsa is UNDER the Akal Tkahat...then its OK....IF it aims to be an INDEPENDENT BODY..then its just another attempt to DIVIDE the SIKHS and will likely fail..as have many others . We MUST not forget that this same SANT SAMAJ have published and printed their own separate SANT SAMAJ REHAT MARYADA..which is at VARIANCE with the Established Akal Takhat approved Sikh rehat maryada of the Guru Khalsa Panth.
