Damdami Taksal opposes Sarbat Khalsa
Amritsar/Nov.6,2015- Damdami Taksal, a leading Sikh seminary, has opposed the ‘Sarbatt Khalsa’ convened by some radical Sikh groups on November 10, citing procedural reasons. Damdami Taksal’s present dispensation is considered to have a soft corner for Akali Dal Badal. Organizations behind convening Sarbat Khalsa are opposed to CM Badal and Akali Dal Badal. Taksal Chief Harnam Singh Dhuma also heads ‘Sant Smaj’, an organizations of different Sikh seminaries.
Opposing the Nov.10 Sarbat Khalsa, Dhuma said that Sarbat Khalsa is traditionally organized at Akal Takhat, and only under exceptional circumstances it can be called outside Akal Takhat. He further said that we are of the opinion that Sarbat Khalsa should be held at Akal Takhat after evolving consensus on its agenda. Taksal would participate if it is held at Akal Takhat. He said the proposed congregation under the name of Sarbat Khalsa would further deepen the crisis in the panth, instead of providing any solution
