AMRITSAR SAHIB, Punjab—Following a report from an SGPC initiated investigation, the SGPC and it’s installed Jathedars have decided to forgive Sikander ‘Singh’ Maluka, pending a list of reprimands that he has been ordered to complete.
In a surprising twist, the SGPC and it’s Jathedars have announced that Maluka has been found guilty of the allegation of distorting the Sikh ardas, however, the decision has been followed up with announcements of the following light reprimands, which will then absolve him of what Sikhs have been labelling ‘a blasphemous attack on Sikh traditions’.
Maluka is being made to perform langar sewa and sewa of the sangat’s shoes for one hour each, donate 51,000 rupees to the SGPC, pay for an Akhand Path and listen to Gurbani at the Harmandar Sahib. He is also being tasked with washing utensils at Talwandi Sabo and Damdama Sahib for one day per location, pay towards a langar, and donate a further 31,000 rupees at each location, going to the SGPC.
Professor Kirpal Singh Badungar, the current SGPC President, presided over the meeting with the Jathedars, who have been ousted by the Sarbat Khalsa of 2015, and arrived at the above decisions after deliberating on the submitted report by an SGPC team.
