Simranjit Singh Mann answers a question on the kind of Jathedar the Khalsa Panth requires and needs. The Akal Takht Jathedar put worldwide Sikhs to shame after he announced the Pardon to Dera Sauda Sadh without even an appearance at the Akal Takht. The Jathedar gave a clean chit to a letter which wasn’t authenticated and didn’t express any apology.
The Jathedar under political pressure granted the pardon and embarrassed Sikhs. Majority of Sikh groups worldwide have opposed the decision and the Jathedar is under pressure from all angles but refuses to back down.
