Efforts are on to take care of peace between the Sindhi and the Sikh communities amid row over shifting ‘saroops’ of Sri Guru Granth Sahib from formers’ properties in Indore.

The satkar committee from Punjab shifted round 74 ‘saroops’ from properties of Sindhi group members in varied localities to Gurdwara Imli Sahib after they noticed alleged violation of the Sikh ‘rehat maryada’.

This has led to resentment among the many Sindhi group, which has immense religion in Sri Guru Granth Sahib and pays obeisance at gurdwaras.

After the matter reached the Akal Takht, a five-member panel of the Dharam Parchar Committee (DPC) of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) was directed to go to Indore to resolve the problem amicably.

Bhupinder Singh, a member of the SGPC panel, instructed {that a} joint assembly was held with Sindhi group representatives and Indore’s Sikh group led by Guru Singh Sabha president Manjit Singh Bhatia.

“Sindhi group is afraid and has proven resentment over the way in which the Satkar committee members forcibly took away ‘saroops’ and threatened them. Additionally they say that this incident has damage their feelings and religion,” he stated.

Then again, Sindhi group representatives too have proven constructive perspective as they too intend to resolve the problem and proceed to worship Sikh religion in future.

In the meantime, the DPC panel will submit its report back to the Akal Takht.
