AISSF urge Akal Takhat Jathedar not to attend Maha Kumbh mela

January 13, 2013 | By

The All India Sikh Student Federation (AISSF) has taken a serious view of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) decision to attend the Khumb Mela, which is going to start in Allahabad from tomorrow. 

AISSF president Karnail Singh Peer Mohammad said in a statement that Sikhs are a distinct community which does not believe in superstition and by SGPC decision to attend the mela, the Sikh leadership is attempting to bring the community back towards superstition against which the first Sikh guru, Guru Nanak Dev had started crusade.

His statement comes in the wake of SGPC accepting an invitation extended by Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh president Mohan Bhagwat to attend the Kumbh Mela. 

Maintaining that the Sikh is known for its valour and bravery, he said the community respects all the religions but forgetting one’s own glorious past and following the tenets of other religion is not acceptable. 

The AISSF president said the Mela had no significance in Sikhism and participation in the religious gathering would send out a wrong signal, especially about the independent identity of the Sikhs. 

He added that it was not good on the part of SGPC to put a stall of literature published by the SGPC at the mela.
