June 14, 2017 | By

Amritsar: The Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) appointed jathedars here on Tuesday (June 13) held a meeting and announced to form a 15 members committee to reclaim the land were once Gurudwara Gian Godari was situated so that the Gurudwara sahib could be reconstructed.

The 15 member committee would comprise representatives of Takhat Hazoor Sahib management board, Shri Patna Sahib management board, president of Chief Khalsa Diwan, chief of Damdami Takhsal (Mehta), Budha Dal, Nirmala Samparda, Nanaksar Samparda, Karsewa Samparda, Sikh Missionary College, Guru Gobind Singh Study Circle, SGPC  and DSGMC.

It is notable that certain Sikh groups had been raising this issue and demanding reconstruction of the Gurdwara Sahib for past several years but this issue was largely ignored by SGPC, DSGMC or the Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal). It is only recently that the SGPC, DSGMC and SAD (Badal) started taking interest in this issue. Though the move is seen was a welcome step from the point of the issue itself but it is believed that SGPC, DSGMC and SAD (Badal) are trying to restore their ‘good’ image amongst the Sikh masses. At the same time by installing Giani Gurbachan Singh, who was rejected as Jathedar by the Sikh masses after he had granted pardon to Dera Sauda Sirsa Chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim, as patron of the movement for Gurdwara Gian Godari the SGPC and other pro-Badals bodies are trying to re-build his image as Jathedar.
