Talking to media persons here, Longowal said a special meet with various Sikh religious and scholars was organised in the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbhandhak Committee (SGPC) complex on Friday and it was decided that the Punjab CM must issue an unconditional apology.
"If the CM doesn't tender an apology... the SGPC would be forced to adopt a legal remedy," he said.
He had also directed the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) to continue with the existing history textbooks.
"We can't tolerate this at any cost and are ready for any sacrifice to protect the honour and dignity of Gurus and Sikh religion," he added.
Longowal said that the SGPC was all set to publish its Sikh religious books and will be reviewing those authored by historian Kirpal Singh who was instrumental in preparing the controversial history text books of the PSEB.
"Keeping in view the gross distortion of facts in the 12thstandard text books, SGPC decided to disassociate itself from Kirpal Singh and the books published by SGPC and authored by him would also be reviewed," he said.
