    RSGPC to Prez: Restore "Anand Marriage Act"
    in its original form

    Punjab Newsline Network
    Friday, 12 February 2010

    ABOHAR: The Rajasthan Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (RSGPC) has sought the intervention of President Pratibha Devisingh Patil to get the Anand Marriage Act restored as it had been enacted and implemented by the British government in 1909 for the welfare of the Sikh community.

    In the two-page memorandum faxed to the President on Thursday, the RSGPC said Sikhism has no confrontation with its contemporaries but it cannot be denied the status of a separate religion since it is not a by-product of any other religion.

    The Sikh religion is based on truth as Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji had said, “Na hum Hindu na hum Musalman.” But contrary to this, Sikhs were termed as a part of Hindu religion under Article 25-B of the Constitution.

    This had brought the Sikhs under the Hindu Marriage Act.

    Claiming that the Anand Marriage Act, recognising anand karaj by Sikh families, remains applicable in its original form in Pakistan and Bangladesh till date, the RSGPC said the same Act has now been adopted in some European countries also.

    The memorandum further points out that the Constitution Reforms Committee had in 1999 was convinced that Sikhs are a separate religion.
    It will be thus better to accept the truth and get the Anand Marriage Act restored to strengthen the sovereign image of India, the RSGPC said.

    When Guruji has himself claimed "Na hum Hindu,na hum Musalman" then why are hindutva forces forcing Sikhs to be a part of their dirty game and making them toe the line of their nefarious designs and why are some spineless Sikhs making themselves being used by them ?

    Actually the hindutva forces are very cunning that is why they always have some of their cadres "dressed "as Sikhs.When they attacked Babri Masjid they did the same ie made some of their cadres(non Sikhs) dressed as Sikhs.When such pictures of "Sikh involvement" were seen all over the world including muslim countries,some Gurdwaras were also attacked.

    Just recently the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad(Student wing of BJP) protested in Delhi on some issues.Not more than 10 persons participated in the protest where a Sikh person(who knows whether that person was on a daily wager or a pagridhaari nirankari/radha soami/namdhari..) was shown raising slogans while rest of the people repeated it.

    When we are not aligned with Taliban then how can we allow ourself to be aligned with RSS and the hindutva brigade and be used by them ?

    All Sikhs must keep their unique identity of "Na hum Hindu,na hum Musalman"alive or we'll be betraying our Guru.

    These people are betraying their Guru :

    Badal dal :


    Naamdhari :

    YouTube- Sikh community will always support Hindus

    Those of you who still think Naamdharis are Sikhs then watch this :

    The restoration of anand Marriage Act , 1909 in its original form is one of the most pressing matters required today . RSGPC has done a good job by raising this demand . I wonder why PS Sarna & HS Sarna do not push for this . The whole Sikh community can look upto them to do the needful since Badal is not bothered about anything remotely associated with Sikhs .
