Amritsar (August 16, 2012): Dal Khalsa took exception to the latest decision of Jathedars’ of Five Takht’s, in which they had proclaimed that “non-historical gurdwaras can be shifted to another place as per the need and requirement of local people”.
Party head H S Dhami said with these remarks Jathedars’s have opened another Pandora box. Unfortunately, the decision was taken to provide ‘shield’ to ‘wrong doing’ of Dera Beas management, he said.
The decision is so vague and generalized, that it would set wrong precedent, he said. “There is a lot of grey area for maneuvering and mischief in Jathedars’ latest decision, he added. It would definitely lead to fresh controversies and crisis every then and now.
Responding to Jathedar’s directive to all Sikh groups to ‘fall in line’, he said theirs group is fully committed to uphold the glory, honour and supremacy of ‘Sri Akal Takht Sahib’. However he said, as per Sikh principles, the working and conduct of its Jathedars’ was never above question.
