AMRITSAR SAHIB—Akal Takht appointed Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh reacted sharply to the incident involving Guru Granth Sahib’s sacrilege in village Bargadi of Faridkot constituency.
He warned the administration to ensure the arrest of culprits; otherwise the Sikh sangat will punish the culprits at its own as her Khalsa traditions.
It is notable that along with Giani Gurbachan Singh, three other appointed Jathedars are currently trying to keep a low profile to escape the growing wrath of Sikh Sangat. Giani Mal Singh, jathedar of Anandpur Sahib recently escaped a deadly attack for his involvement in pardoning Gurmeet Ram Rahim.
While after the Bargadi beadbi incident, Giani Gurbachan Singh has stated that Sikh Sangat knows how to punish the culprits as per Khalsa traditions, he himself has been asked to restore Khalsa pride by not issuing statements under political influence. Despite thousands having joined protests at Bargadi, Giani Gurbachan Singh is yet to address the protesters.
