TALWANDI SABO, Punjab—Rural Development Minister Sikandar Maluka was reportedly faced by upset Sikh masses outside Takht Sri Damdama Sahib when he arrived to perform ‘sewa’ as prescribed by SGPC Jathedars, after they pardoned him in the Ardas Beadbi case.
Maluka was asked to deposit 31,000 rupees at Takht Sri Damdama Sahib and perform sewa at Langar hall there as well as to deposit 51,000 rupees at Sri Harmandir Sahib and perform sewa there too.
According to sources, Sikh activists surrounded the caravan of Akali Minister Sikandar Maluka’s son, mistakenly believing it to be a cavalcade of Maluka. However, the Akali minister Maluka succeeded in entering the Takht Sahib’s premises and perform sewa of washing dishes.
Meanwhile, it was revealed that the police had to shield Maluka’s son from outraged Sikh masses. The police also escorted Maluka through the rear doors of Takht Sri Damdama Sahib to save him from outraged Sikh activists.
