Dal Khalsa welcomes Haryana SGPC Act

Press Trust of India  |  Amritsar 

Radical Sikh outfit Dal Khalsa today welcomed the passage of Sikh Gurudwara Parbhandhak Committee Bill and congratulated Sikhs for getting the right to manage their religious institutions.

Dal Khalsa spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh said "with HSGPC becoming a reality, all lies, bluffs and misleading statement by Badals (Chief Minister Parkash Singh and his son and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh) have thoroughly been exposed".

He, however, expressed hope that Sikhs would follow the Sikh principles and traditions approved by Akal Takht and would not any way encourage or allow the state's interference in Sikh religious affairs.

According to the Bill, a committee namely Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee will be established for proper management and control of the gurdwaras and their properties within the state.
