The karsewa led by Damdami Taksal head Harnam Singh Dhumma is almost complete with gold plated items being installed. Sikhs from around the world donated large amounts of money for the gold plated items which were shown to the public before installation.
Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan stated, “Sant Dhumma wished that gold plated sewa had been done at Sri Harmandir Sahib and Akal Takht but not at Gurdwara Thada. He said the Gurdwara Sahib is related to 6th Guru, Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji and sewa of gold should be done here also.”
The jathedar went onto say, “Sant Dhumma started the sewa and god has blessed the Damdami Taksal for immense sewa for centuries.”
However, many Sikhs around the world have expressed outrage with the following comments:
“Keep spending sangat’s hard earned money on nonsense things”
“They spend millions on gold but don’t help those in need”
