Amritsar: Hindtuva propagandist and former Amritsar MP Navjot Sidhu yesterday tendered a written apology before Akal Takht over the issue of distrotion of Gurbani. Navjot Sidhu had distorted a Gurbani Shabad in his speech at a RSS event in Ludhiana last month.
Navjot Sidhu had been in the eye of the storm ever since, with various Sikh organisations staging protests against him in the state while some even urged Akal Takht to summon him and initiate action.
Navjot Sidhu even came under attack twice during the election campaign in Jammu, where he canvassed for the BJP extensively in the run-up to the Assembly polls. His cavalcade was pelted with stones by some Sikh youths.
He was accused of wrongly attributing the “bani” of Guru Arjan Dev to Pandav Arjun of the Mahabharata, which led to allegations of blasphemy.
Navjot Sidhu did not himself tender the socalled apology letter at Akal Takht Sahib rather his some other persons handed over the letter at Akal Takht Sahib on his behalf. Moreover, he did not accepted his guilt in his letter and said that he seeks an apology if he had ‘unintentionally’ hurt the sentiments of the Sikh Sangat.
