Chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Friday endorsed the Akal Takht’s exoneration of Sirsa leader Ram Rahim of blasphemy charges, saying the Akal Takht is the supreme authority and its word is final.

Asked if the decision of the Sikh high priests was politically motivated and would impact the 2017 assembly elections, Badal said they would see it when they come to that.

Earlier, addressing a gathering at the Eidgah here on Eid, Badal emphasised on peace, harmony and brotherhood in the state saying his government is committed to upholding these.

Sikhs worldwide have protested against the move and disagreeing with the decision.
