As usual claiming Sarbat Khalsa Anti Sikh, Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Avtar Singh Makkar who is known to have close ties with ruling Badals made a last-minute effort to make the organiser see reason when he appealed to foil “Sarbat Khalsa”.

That the SGPC has no intention of changing the jathedars was clear from Makkar’s statement that Akal Takht jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh would address the community from the Golden Temple on Diwali.
Some radical groups didn’t want him to deliver the customary address on the auspicious occasion, since the ‘Panj Pyaras’ have directed the SGPC executive body to either replace him or sack him along with heads of the other Takhts for their role in the “pardon drama”.
