The SGPC panel constituted to border the insurance policies relating to the appointment, service span, jurisdiction and relieving of Takht Jathedars (heads) has been mendacity defunct.

The difficulty got here alive once more when Akal Takht’s officiating Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh raised it from the platform of Akal Takht throughout a programme yesterday.

Takht heads eliminated unceremoniously

January 2015: Giani Balwant Singh Nandgarh sacked from the submit of Jathedar, Takht Damdama Sahib, for supporting unique Nanakshahi calendar

Apparently, SGPC president Harjinder Singh Dhami was additionally current on the event. Emphasising on safeguarding Sikh establishments, Giani Harpreet Singh, from the dais, questioned the SGPC concerning the delay in framing coverage for Takht Jathedars.

“A coverage must be framed about how lengthy a Jathedar might occupy Takht’s seat, scope of his rights and the process to alleviate him. If a fallacious choice or mistake is made by a Jathedar, norms needs to be there beneath which he might be punished, suspended or eliminated,” he mentioned.

Earlier, former Jathedar Akal Takht Giani Joginder Singh Vedanti had raised the identical problem and communicated to the SGPC to border a coverage on Jathedars.

The way in which Jathedars of three of the 5 Sikh Takhts (temporal seats) — Akal Takht, Takht Damdama Sahib and Takht Kesgarh Sahib — are appointed and sacked has usually are available in for criticism from Panthic circles. The opposite two Takhts (Patna Sahib in Patna and Hazoor Sahib at Nanded in Maharashtra) situated outdoors Punjab have their separate administration committees that appoint their Jathedars, however after taking the Centre into confidence. This course of too has invited resentment.

Giani Harpreet Singh mentioned that the board of Takht Hazoor Sahib had been suspended for 5 months, however no voice was being raised to reconstitute it. Equally, no board was working in Takht Patna Sahib.

Lately, Takht Patna Sahib Jathedar Giani Ranjit Singh was declared ‘tankhaiah’ and his companies have been terminated allegedly for misappropriation of Daswandh (one-tenth of providing by devotees) and for issuing a ‘whimsical’ edict by the ‘Panj Pyare’ (5 beloved ones) which led to ‘confusion’.

A panel was constituted by the SGPC on January 21, 2015 to resolve on the principles governing appointments and repair guidelines pertaining to the Jathedars. It’s learnt that aside from holding a gathering at Anandpur Sahib, the place it was determined to arrange an e mail ID in order that strategies from intellectuals might be invited, no follow-up motion was taken.
