Won’t allow protest on missing ‘saroops’ at Diwan Hall: Longowal

Amritsar, September 12

SGPC chief Gobind Singh Longowal has refused to allow Gurdwara Manji Sahib Diwan Hall, situated inside the Golden Temple, to be used for organising a protest after the satkar committees and other Sikh religious organisations announced a stir at the site on September 14.

The satkar committees, formed to uphold the dignity of Guru Granth Sahib in society, had announced a protest against the SGPC accusing it of failure in maintaining the dignity of the Guru Granth Sahib during its publication. They held it responsible for the missing 328 'saroops' of Guru Granth Sahib and inadequate punishment to guilty officials.

Longowal said the Manji Sahib Diwan Hall was a historic religious site associated with the Golden Temple, so its sanctity could not be allowed to be compromised at any cost.

He said the 'saroops' were in the houses of the Sikh sangat as per the 'rehat maryada', so no desecration took place. He flayed the attempt to politicise the matter. — TNS
