[Ishna's note: This thread started within this one: Interracial And Interfaith Marriage, Help Needed To Confront/convince My Parents ] Tejwant Singh Ji, I am just wondering how they got around the hukamnama issued by Akal Takht on interfaith marriages as far as anand karaj is concerned? It's a big issue in the UK right now, with people actually protesting weddings! In 2007 a hukamnama was issued by Akal Takht stating that only twi Sikhs can be married via anand karaj (because the lavans are actually deeply spiritual) and that if a convert is being married, they must already have Kaur or Singh in their documents (passport etc.) to show that they are not just claiming to follow Sikhi, in order to have a Gurdwara wedding. I'll attach it.
