Akal Takht Jathedar came out of hiding and finally spoke on the issue of Bapu Surat Singh’s hungers strike at Hassanpur, Punjab. The information came from prominent journalist Surinder Singh of Talking Punjab.
He revealed the Jathedar has condemned the lathicharge on peaceful Sikhs inside the home of Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa at Hassanpur, Punjab.
The Jathedar has avoided the press for the past several weeks and refused to issue any statement on Panthic issues. Sikhs worldwide feel the Jathedar has let them down because of his continuous inaction.
It was decided at a panthic meeting in the UK that protest will occur against any leaders, parcharaks, raagis, or officials who don’t meet Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa.
The Jathedar of Akal Takht was met with protests during his visit in Italy and New York earlier this month.
