The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has shifted two of the Panj Pyaras out of Punjab, but both have refused to join their new posting. It is probably for the first time that any of the Panj Pyaras has refused to abide by SGPC orders.
While Satnam Khanda has been shifted to the Sikh Mission in Hapur (UP), Satnam Singh has been transferred to a similar mission in Delhi. The two said they would protest the order and decide their future course once the remaining three (of the Panj Pyaras) resumed duty.
While Major Singh and Tarlok Singh are at the Nankana Sahib gurdwara in Pakistan for baptism to mark the gurpurb of Guru Nanak Dev (both would return on November 29), Mangal Singh is on sick leave.
