Takht ex-jathedar, panel chief spar over report

Share This

Amritsar, November 9

A verbal altercation took place between Ranjit Singh, former Akal Takht Jathedar and Ishar Singh, who headed the Akal Takht-constituted panel that investigated the missing 'saroops' of Guru Granth Sahib.

A day after Ranjit Singh led a march towards the Golden Temple and staged a sit-in with his supporters at the entrance plaza of the Golden Temple, Ishar Singh snubbed him for misquoting the facts of the report. Ranjit Singh alleged that while Ishar Singh and two other panel members had signed each and every page of the 'original' probe report, the one that was made public by the SGPC on its website never possessed the same.

In response, Ishar Singh, through a video clip that went viral on social media, clarified that there were three sets of the probe report. "The one possessed by me carried the signature of all probe panel members on each and every page, whereas the other two sets that were handed over to the Akal Takht carried the signatures only on the last page. Ranjit Singh also wrongly alleged that I was a classmate of Giani Harpreet Singh whereas I am quite elder to him. Nowhere in the report it was mentioned that there was any political interference of Badals," he said. — TNS
