BC, Canada: Sikh Sangat in BC Canada is outraged over the beadbi of Saroops of Guru Granth Sahib Ji that were sent to Satnam Education Society of BC by Shiromani Gurdwara Prabhandak Committee (SGPC).
A bus carrying Saroops of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji were shipped by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), Amritsar to Ripudaman Singh Malik and the Satnam Trust. The hundreds of Saroops were slated for various destinations across North America.
The bus carrying Saroops got damaged during transit and there was beadbi of Saroops of Guru Granth Sahib.
Khalsa Diwan Society (New Westminster), Gurdwara Dashmesh Darbar (Surrey), Gurdwara Singh Sabha (Surry), Gurdwara Kalgidhar Darbar (Abbotsford), Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara (Surrey) and Gurdwara Baba Banda Singh Bahadur (Surrey) held a meeting to discuss the matter. The meetings jointly resolved that Saroops of Guru Ganth Sahib Ji should be handed over to Gurdwara Sahibs for Sewa-sambhal. In a letter sent to the Sriomani Gurudwara Prabhadak Committee (SGPC) the Gurdwara committees said that in future Saroops of Guru Granth Sahib should not be sent on the request of Ripudaman Singh Malik and the Satnam Trust.
SGPC has directed Ripudaman Singh Malik to hand over Saroops to the Gurdwara Sahibs as per requirements. A letter by SGPC to Ripudaman Singh Malik reads: “In view of the reports and numerous representations received by the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabhandak Committee (SGPC), Sri Amaritsar, regarding teh Holy Saroops of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, it is clarified and conveyed to you that these Holy Saroops of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji have been sent bheta rehat (free of cost) by the SGPC, on the persistent demands of the Gurdwaras of Canada. Further, it is desired that these Saroops should be distributed bheta rehat (free of cost) to the needy Gurdwaras”.
