Protests happened against Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh immediately following a Singh’s question the Jathedar refused to answer. The Jathedar invited the man asking the question to go outside with him but he and others wanted the Jathedar to answer in front of the sangat.
Many people started shouting slogans against the Jathedar after which the Jathedar had to leave the program.
Recently, protests are happening at almost everywhere the Jathedar visits for his lack of efforts at a time the Sikh community needs leadership.
The Jathedar has repeatedly left key issues in the back burner while concentrating on not so urgent issues. After protests in Italy, Sikh worldwide have called for protests wherever he visits.
