Takht: Don’t politicise ‘saroops’ issue

Share This

Amritsar, July 22

The Akal Takht and the SGPC have warned against giving political colour to the case of missing 267 'saroops' of Guru Granth Sahib and assured that "the guilty would not be spared".

The panel constituted by the Akal Takht has summoned Kanwaljit Singh, the retired superintendent of SGPC's publication department. Kanwaljit retired on May 31. It was then that the issue of missing of 'saroops' came to the fore.

Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh said the panel would submit its report within a month. "It is a pity that the issue is being raked up to gain political mileage. It is a religious issue, which is being scrutinised in a transparent manner. Those found at fault, whosoever he or she may be, will be liable to face action as per 'maryada'," he said.

The Akal Takht has appointed Justice Navita Singh, a retired judge of Punjab and Haryana High Court, to conduct the probe. —TNS
