Paid obeisance before Shri Guru Granth Sahib

PHAGWARA: Outrightly ignoring the directives of Jalandhar based Dera Sachkhand Ballan to severe ties with Sikhs, hundreds of followers of Dera Baba Hans Raj ji Pandwa paid their obeisance before Shri Guru Granth Sahib and organized a religious congregation in nearby village Pandhwan which was largly attended by the dera followers.

Congregation was addressed by Shiromani Gurdwara Parbhandhak Committee President Jathedar Avtar Singh Makkar, Sant Mahinder Dass Pandhwa, Sant Nirmal Dass Rasulpur, Sant Sarwan Dass Ludhiana, and Sant Tehal Dass of Nangal late last night.

SGPC President Jathedar Makkar who arrived in Dera at about 9.45 PM on Thursday night, appealed to the people to follow the path and inspirations cum teachings of Guru Granth Sahib ji and work for the strengthening of the society. He said that some anti-panth forces were actively working to divide the Sikhs and Ravidassi Community, but their malafied intentions could not be succeeded as the teaching of Guru Granth Sahib did not allow for the destruction of the society, but it wanted Unity among all sections of the society.

Almost all Speakers expressed their determination to maintain maryada of Guru Granth Sahib and strongly said that designs to divide the communities would not be fulfilled and they will continue with the practice holy book of Guru Granth Sahib as the decision to remove Guru Granth sahib from the Deras taken by Dera Ballan could not be imposed upon entire ravidass community.

Meanwhile Phagwara Police has made elaborate security arrangements to prevent any untoward incident, said Phagwara DSP Harkamalpreet Singh Khakh. He admitted that additional police force was also sought for Phagwara sub division. On the other hand SSP Kapurthala Ram singh and SP(HQ) chaman Lal were also camping in Phagwara and monitored the law and order situation.When contacted SSP hesitated and refused to comment upon the prevailing situation. The Tribune correspondent has observed that Phagwara Sub division was on a boiling point as per previous experiences and the rampant violence after Vienna episode was seen by the people who witnessed dozens of vehicles stting on fire by the protesters

It's a given that some will take the new identity, some wont.

Sikhi was a tisra panth in Panjab, now we have a chotha.........

Our people need a slap, they have seriously poor parbandh skills and make sabandhs with all the wrong groups.

From greatness we are falling into serious phudhu poona.

We make me laugh sometimes.

The ever decreasing minority......

Whatever next.......BRING IT ON!!!
