Amritsar, October 29

A day after 117-member Sikh jatha crossed over to Pakistan to participate within the centenary of Shaheedi Saka Panja Sahib, one other 19-member Jatha led by Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) chief Harjinder Singh Dhami crossed the Attari border to participate within the samagam on Saturday.

Notably, hours after the SGPC expressed its displeasure over denial of visas to 40 members yesterday, 14 extra jatha members acquired the visas late final night time.

The occasion began at Pakistan’s Gurdwara Sri Panja Sahib Hasan Abdal at this time. A gurmat samagam was held at a railway station of Hasan Abdal the place the Saka had taken place wherein ragi teams carried out kirtan.

Earlier than crossing over to Pakistan, the SGPC chief rejected promulgation of the Haryana Sikh Gurdwaras (Administration) Modification Ordinance-2022, to arrange a 41-member ad-hoc committee to handle the affairs of the gurdwaras until the elections had been held for the formation of the brand new gurdwara panel. He termed it as interference within the non secular affairs of the Sikhs.

Dhami elaborated that the notification, in addition to forming an ad-hoc committee for 18 months categorically talked about that if the elections weren’t held inside the stipulated time, the federal government would enhance the time of the ad-hoc committee for the subsequent 18 months.

He identified that the notification mentions {that a} authorities consultant can be the patron of the ad- hoc committee whereas within the Sikh establishments Guru Granth Sahib and Akal Takht had been supreme.
