Sant Lakhbir Singh Ratwara Sahib stated there would’ve been less pain if the Jathedars died. He condemned the decision and said the anger among the Sikhs is legitimate. He added, “I request the Jathedars that if they believe in maryada and throne of the Akal Takht than they must change their decision or stay at home. The decison wasn’t in favor of the Sikh Panth but in favor of the Sirsa Sadh. The Jathedars should stay home because they can’t make a decision in benefit of the panth. So many Sikhs became shaheed during the 2007 chaos because those Sikhs followed the Akal Takht’s hukamnama.”
Sant Lakhbir Singh stated that it’s crucial for Sikhs to gather together in protest of the decision. Sant Lakhbir stated that many people died as a result of the Akal Takht’s Hukamnama in 2007 because they wanted to restore the maryada of the Panth. However, the decision wasn’t done it was made to do because of pressure on the Akal Takht Jathedar said Sant Lakhbir Singh.
The statement came at a meeting of the Sant Samaj. Sant Lakhbir Singh Ratwara Sahib is one of the five senior members of the Sant Samaj Executive committee.
