Sarbat Khalsa Framework For Moving Forward The Panthic Agenda


Sarbat Khalsa

Global Opportunity To Unite

A Framework For Moving Forward The Panthic Agenda

Short Term: Sarbat Khalsa Globally on Nov.11/15

Endorse Sarbat Khalsa and protect it from failure by:

Simultaneously endorsing the resolutions globally (hundreds of Gurdwaras across the world representing Lakhs or Millions of Sikhs on Bandi-
Chorh-Divas – November 11th, 2015)

This will also force those in India to share the Resolutions with the Global Sikh Community in advance and try to reach consensus.

This will insure success of the Sarbat Khalsa (by it being implemented Globally across hundreds of Gurdwaras), even if anti-Panthic forces don’t allow it to

Pass two key resolutions at the Sarbat Khalsa:

  • Discharge the current Jathedars and appoint at minimum a new Jathedar of the Akal Takht (potentially: Jathedar Ranjit Singh; Jagtar Singh Hawara; Bhai Lal Singh – or others acceptable to the Panth)
  • Establish a time-frame (potentially upon a Sarbat Khalsa on Vaisakhi 2016), and structure for each of the following:
  • Selection and appointment of the remaining four Jathedars (preferably one each representing or from: North America; Europe; Rest of World; India)
  • Procedures for future selection, establishment and termination of the Five Jathedars
  • Definition of the roles, duties and responsibilities of the Jathedars, independent of any country’s governmental structure or political influence (e.g. not
  • under the legal authority of India’s Gurdwaras Act)
  • Procedures for calling and conducting future Sarbat Khalsa
  • Decision making and Edict implementation process of the Jathedars (e.g. decisions cannot be made without a broad consultative process; and extensive
  • Gurbani based reasoning) – Note1
  • Global platform for raising issues for consideration by the Jathedars
  • Consultative committees to advise the Jathedars on Religious, Political, Financial and Legal issues.
  • Resources and budgets to support the Office of the Jathedars, in their ability to implement the mandate given to them by the Panth

Benefits
