Homosexual Marriage: Akal Takht Directs American Sikhs to take back holy saroop from Sarabjeet Singh Neel

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—Taking strong notice of the homosexual marriage accomplished under the patronage of Sri Guru Granth Sahib in Sacramento (USA) last month, the SGPC appointed acting Akal Takht Sahib Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh has directed Sarabjeet Singh Neel and his wife Leela to hand over the saroop of Guru Granth Sahib to the Sikh Sangat.

Giani Harpreet Singh has directed the North American Sikhs to place this holy saroop in Gurdwara Sahib after taking it back from Sarabjeet Singh Neel.

Notably, this holy saroop was used to perform a homosexual marriage between two males.

Earlier, Giani Harpreet Singh had directed the North American Sikhs to trace the person who completed religious customs in this homosexual marriage.

Giani Harpreet Singh’s personal assistant Jaspal Singh has informed that the person, who accomplished this unethical marriage, will be summoned to Akal Takht and given tankhah as per Sikh tenets after placing the holy saroop of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in a nearby Gurdwara Sahib.

Sarbjeet Singh Neel is known for violating edicts passed by the supreme Sikh temporal authority. He has performed a number of destination weddings by taking saroop of Guru Granth Sahib in planes, without providing proper satkar to Guru Sahib.

Sikh24 has earlier published an article expressing concern over lack of Guru Granth Sahib’s satkar by Sarbjeet Singh Neel and his wife. That article is available here.

  1. The Sikhs are indeed progressive but we can’t lay our moral and cultural upbringing bare to those who don’t even shown scant respect to the teachings and sacrificers of our Gurus. No one is born a bigot till one behaves and act like one.

  2. I used to think that the Sikh’s were humanists and progressive people. But looks like everyone’s a bigot, even the Akal Takht. If they cannot accept the reality, that same-sex couples exist, then they are living in denial. Extremely sad to see that they would go to this extent to prove the reality as unacceptable.

    • The law prevents ministers of the Church of England from carrying out same-sex marriages, it goes for all main religions Sikhs are no different. Yes it is a reality that same sex couples exit they may have civil marriages if they want.

    • U can be gay and sikh, but u cant perform the anand karaj marriage as the verses refer to husband and wife not husband and husband or wife and wife, you can do get married in any other ceremony but not the anand karaj, dont disrespect and try to change gurbani in the first place.

    • Sikhi has no problem with same-sex couples, but they simply cannot get an Anand Karaj, the same way interfaith couples cannot get an Anand Karaj. Sikhs aren’t obligated to change the rules of our sacred ceremonies for others. They’re welcome to be get a civil marriage and still be Sikhs.

    • It is not bigotry but the issue here is of Guru Granth Sahib and its bani called Lawan which decides the responsiblity for man and woman not man and man.
