SGPC says car carrying Guru Granth Sahib ‘frisked’ at Mann wedding ceremony


The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee Thursday claimed {that a} car carrying the Guru Granth Sahib to the official residence of Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann for his wedding ceremony was “frisked”. Calling it an “insult to the honour of the Guru”, the SGPC has demanded motion in opposition to erring officers.

SGPC chief Harjinder Singh Dhami mentioned, “Sri Guru Granth Sahib is spiritual guide of Sikh Qaum (community) and every Sikh gives the highest respect to the Gurbani. But during the marriage event of CM, the vehicle carrying the Bir was stopped for checking at his official residence in Chandigarh. It is an “insult to the status and honour of the Guru,” he mentioned, including {that a} purported video displaying it has harm Sikh sentiments.

“It was even more hurtful that this incident took place at the residence of the chief minister, who is committed to the promotion and respect of every religion. It is his responsibility to respect sentiments of all religions and understand the honour and importance of religious scriptures,” mentioned Dhami.

A gaggle of 40 SGPC members led by Dhami handed over a memorandum to Giani Harpreet Singh, Jathedar of the Akal Takht, demanding motion in opposition to the erring officers.

Giani Harpreet Singh mentioned “those who made the arrangements should have taken care of such things”.
