harbansj jiYesterday on the occasion of observation of cremation of Guru Tegh Bahadur ji by Lakhi Shah Vanjara at Rakabgunj, Paramjit Singh Sarna president of DSGMC said that no Prachark, Kathavachak or Lecturer will be allowed to discuss pros and cons of Dasam Granth from the platform of DSGMC for the present.
He said that DSGMC will press for setting up a committee of respected intellectuals by Akal Takht (As promised, but not yet set up) to examine it in its entirety and come out with its recommendations. This should be on the lines of the committee which was set up, to come up with SRM in 1933.
Until then he requested Sikhs not fan the controversy by constant bickereing.
But the question is are there any such intellectuals left who have an open mind on the issue?
dalbirk jiI have this feeling that Badals have bitten more than they can chew this time . The RSS ( BJP ) is at its weakest ever . The Nanakshahi calender issue alongwith Darshan Singh ( ragi ) issue will remain in people's mind for long long time alongwith Dera Sacha Sauda ( being let off ) & not acting during Ramanand ( Vienna ) anti-Sikh riots in Punjab will perhaps be the WATERLOO of Badals added to Electricity Crisis in the state with over 10 hours cuts daily in all cities of Punjab . In coming SGPC elections , a lot of people are looking for change .
Narayanjot ji,I have already been told by the editor of one Indian newspaper, World Sikh News, to whom I sent a letter, that this issue is nothing more than an insiders' squabble and that I should get a life. He might be right -- of course I don't think so. The slogan of the paper is So the Truth Can be Told. But his point may be that the workings of the Akal Takht are obviously political so why should he get overly concerned.
