Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Punjab - HT Cor­re­spon­dent let­ter­schd@hin­dus­tan­times.com

Jathedars of Takhts are not un­der any worldly court, said Shi­ro­mani Gur­d­wara Par­band­hak Com­mit­tee (SGPC) pres­i­dent Kir­pal Singh Badun­gar while talk­ing to me­di­a­per­sons at Sri Guru Teg Ba­hadur Khalsa Col­lege, Anandpur Sahib, on Tues­day.

Badun­gar was re­spond­ing to a me­dia query re­gard­ing a pe­ti­tion filed by Sikh his­to­rian Har­jin­der Singh Dil­gir in the Pun­jab and Haryana high court chal­leng­ing his ex-com­mu­ni­ca­tion by the five jathedars.

SGPC pres­i­dent said he would be able to give his re­ac­tion re­gard­ing the no­tice is­sued to the SGPC by the high court only af­ter re­ceiv­ing it.

To an­other query on the Akal Takht turn­ing down Shi­ro­mani Gur­d­wara Par­band­hak Com­mit­tee’s re­qust to ex­tend the date of Guru Gobind Singh’s parkash parv (birth an­niver­sary) , Badun­gar said the de­ci­sion by the high­est tem­po­ral body of the Sikhs is ac­cept­able to the SGPC. Gur­purb will be cel­e­brated on De­cem­ber 25, he said.
