A video has gone viral on social networks showing a man stealing from the Golak of the Gurdwara Sahib. He is seen looking around for cameras and makes a sneaky attempt to grab some cash.
Since there is no one present inside the Gurdwara he grabs a hold of 2 flower holders and sneaks them into his bag. In Punjab, sacrilege incidents are happening frequently causing outrage and anger among Sikhs. The incident is another reminder that in the presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in the Darbar Hall there has to be a people present.
It’s quite shocking that despite numerous incidents of sacrilege still efforts aren’t being made from Granthis or sevadars to be present in the Darbar Hall.
Many sacrileges can be prevented if Gurdwara committees are proactive in stopping them from happening.
