(DSU News Bureau) During Nagar Kirtan of Vaisakhi Celebrations in Surrey, Canada an interesting exchange took place between a Singh on stage and Jathedar Nandgarh. The Singh on stage questioned why the Jathedar didn’t publicly oppose Parkash Singh Badal getting Faqar E Quam award by the Akal Takht Jathedar in 2011.
The 300,000 Sikhs unitedly passed a ‘Mata’ or resolution of revoking the title of ‘Faqar E Quam’ given to Parkash Singh Badal. A Jaikare was shouted and the Sikh sangat overwhelmingly responded with their hands up including Jathedar Nandgarh.
The Sikh had stated earlier that if the Jathedar didn’t respond with his hands up he would be equally responsible for the recognition given to badal in 2011.
