Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - Htpunjab -

AM­RIT­SAR : The Akal Takht on Mon­day di­rected the Sikh com­mu­nity to boy­cott noted Sikh preacher Ran­jit Singh Dhadri­an­wale un­less he seeks clemency for his ‘ob­jec­tion­able’ re­marks.

Af­ter a meet­ing of Sikh cler­gy­men, Akal Takht act­ing jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh said, “As per the re­port sub­mit­ted by the sub-com­mit­tee con­sti­tuted to probe the state­ments made by Bhai Ran­jit Singh Dhadri­an­wale, he has made un­fair state­ments on the Sikh prin­ci­ples and did not turn up for clar­i­fi­ca­tion. As per the de­ci­sion taken by Panj Singh Sahiban, Sikh san­gat across the world is di­rected to not at­tend his con­gre­ga­tion, lis­ten him or share his videos on so­cial me­dia un­til he apol­o­gises for his re­marks.”

“If any­one or­gan­ises his con­gre­ga­tion and any un­to­ward in­ci­dent hap­pens there, he will be re­spon­si­ble for it. If Dhadri­an­wale does not stop mak­ing the ob­jec­tion­able re­marks, strin­gent ac­tion will be taken against him,” he said. Same ver­dict was pro­nounced for Dhadri­an­wale’s aide and Uk-based Sikh preacher Harinder Singh, head of Nir­vair Khalsa Jatha.
