Brampton, ON (Press Release): The Free Akal Takht movement is organizing a town hall event in Brampton this Friday evening to discuss solutions to the ongoing Sikh leadership and institutional crisis in Punjab. The movement aims to free the Akal Takht from political interference and reclaim its state of social, economic, political and spiritual sovereignty.

“No matter how strongly you identify as a Sikh, the Akal Takht has a direct impact on your experience of Sikhi” commented educator-activist Harinder Singh. “Yet Sikhs around the world have no influence over the decisions being made.”
