SGPC has released the Bikrami Calendar under the Nanakshahi Name as most dates aren’t according to the Nanaksahi Calendar but the Bikrami.
Many Sikh groups are speaking out against the calendar as they say many dates are according to the Bikrami Calendar.
Dal Khalsa representative stated the title states Nanakshahi Calendar but the dates are all according to Bikrami Calendar. He went onto say that all Gurpurabs are according to Bikrami Calendar.
The Sikh group stated the SGPC has committed “fraud” with Sikhs.
Akal Takht Jathedar has asked Sikh Sangat worldwide to follow the released calendar and stated the calendar will only be for the current Sikh year. He further stated, that “a permanent solution will be sought to solve the calendar problem.”
