MAKHU, Punjab—On April 1, the Interim Akal Takht Jathedar (appointed by Sarbat Khalsa-2015) Bhai Dhian Singh Mand reached the village of Arifke to meet Baba Dilbag Singh who was released on bail a few days back, charged for interrupting a congregation of Sirsa cult disciples. Jathedar of Takht Sri Kesgarh Sahib Bhai Amrik Singh Ajnala also accompanied him.
Chief of various Guru Granth Sahib Satkar Committees handed over a memorandum to Jathedar Dhian Singh seeking action against Sikh preacher Baba Ranjit Singh Dhadrianwala for using objectionable remarks about meditation period of ninth Sikh master Guru Teg Bahadur Ji and sacred ‘sarovar’ of Sri Harmandir Sahib.
Interacting with media on this occasion, Jathedar Dhian Singh Mand said that the memorandum would be deliberated upon by them in next meeting. He further said that no guilty person of distorting the historical facts of Sikh history would be spared.
Jathedar Dhian Singh Mand said that the government planted agencies were trying to bifurcate the Sikh masses by raising worthless issues and inciting Sikh masses by distorting history. He said that they would try their best to tackle these strategies of Indian agencies and unite Sikh factions onto a single platform.
Commenting on the imposition of section 295-A on Sikh activists who had gone to stop the congregation of Sirsa cult disciples, Jathedar Mand said that Sikh activists were framed under inappropriate charges. He maintained that the section 295 of Indian Penal Code indicts the guilty of instigating religious sentiments but that the Sirsa cult disciples doesn’t belong to any specific religion. “So how could the government indict Sikh activists under section 295 of IPC”, he added.
