Takht Patna Sahib Jathedar Giani Iqbal Singh issued a Hukamnama condemning the decision of the Panj Piyare of the Akal Takht Sahib which called for the removal of all Takht Jathedars after no response the issued summons.
Giani Iqbal Singh has been believed to have ties with the RSS and was one of the 5 Jathedars who gave Dera Sauda Head the pardon for the 2007 act of sacrilege.
It becomes clear that Giani Iqbal Singh is now using the Panj Piyare of Takht Patna Sahib to his own benefit and to further cause divisions.
Here is a copy of the so called “Hukamnama”:
After pressure from Sikhs worldwide, SGPC Head Makkar was forced to reinstate the Panj Piyare. Makkar had called their decision invalid and stated the Panj Piyare had no authority to take such decision. Giani Iqbal Singh is believed to have acted under the orders of Takht Patna Sahib Board’s President Avtar Singh Makkar.
