Sikhs are protesting against the Dubai Gurdwara’s management committee for violating the Amrit Sanchar Ceremony and editing the ardas. The Gurdwara’s Management eliminated 3 of the 5 Banis in a recent Amrit Sanchar ceremony which is a violation of Sikh code of conduct and a blashemy.
The rejected Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib, Giani Gurbachan Singh took not of it and stated the recitation of only 2 banis instead of all five is a against the Sikh rehat maryada.
The five banis- Japuji Sahib, Jaap Sahib, Chopai Sahib, Savaiye and Anand Sahib are suppose to be recited during an Amrit Sanchar Ceremony.
The rejected Jathedar stated the committee was following the ex-communicated Darshan Singh Ragi who recently changed parts of the ardas.
Reportedly, the head of the Dubai Gurdwara issued an apology.
