  1. Gurfeteh recently been reading this book and certainly have changed some of my views on what happened in 84 basically the book says that it had more to do with politics.

Can't upload pictures Neo. No option given to upload them at bottom of page.
  5. Just out of interest did the Akali Nihangs try ousting the corrupt sanataani elements which had overtaken darbar sahib back in those days?
