Amritsar: Avtar Singh Makkar, president of the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabhandak Committee (SGPC), has written a letter to Mufti Mohammad Syeed, Chief Minister of Jammu & Kashmir, to take strict action against activists of Brahman Sabha who forcibly took over control of Gurudwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha in Kishatwad.
Members of Brahmin Sabha had also thrashed Gurdwara Sevadar Shadi Singh besides throwing away his belongings out of Gurdwara Sarai.
President of SGPC stated that Brahman Sabha activists have hurt the Sikh sentiments. He urged J&K CM to handover the management of Gurudwara Sahib to Sikh Gurdwara management committee that was previously managing the affairs of the Gurdwara Sahib. Avtar Singh Makkar also demanded strict action against culprits.
A copy of this letter has also been sent to Deputy Commissioner of Kishatwad.
Jathedar Akal Takhat Giani Gurbachan Singh has also condemned the Kishatwar incident. Giani Gurbachan Singh has reportedly asked Swarn Singh of Sikh Mission Jammu to inquire into the incident and file a report. He said that the State administration should handover the management of Gurudwara to the Sikh sangat.
