Ambala: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar yesterday visited Gurdwara Manjit Singh Sahib in Ambala. He was reportedly “honoured” by state unit of Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) with an alleged “idol” of Guru Nanak Ji. It is notably that Idol worshipping or making or recognising idols of Sikh Gurus is strictly prohibited in Sikhi.
It is notable that Gurdwara Manji Sahib is managed by the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabhandak Committee (SGPC). Gurdwara Manager told Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) over phone that the state CM was bestowed upon a “Siropa” by the Gurdwara management and the “idol” was presented by senior “Akali” leaders Sukhdev Singh Gobindgarh, Sant Singh Kandhari and Ajit Singh Sondha. He admitted that such a practice was against the Gurmat and he was apologetic for his failure to stop such an incident in the concerned Gurdwara Sahib.
Haryana Sikh Gurdwar Management Committee leader Harpal Singh has slammed the state leadership of the Badal Dal for indulging into prohibited practices and violating the Gurmat principles.
