Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan took the exit after a speaker severely bashed him on stage. The Jathedar is being regarded as a ‘puppet’ jathedar of the Badal family who refuses to speak out against them.
Many are regarding Giani Gurbachan Singh as one of the worse Jathedars of Sikh Quam who hasn’t been a voice of the Sikhs. The Jathedar made false promises on the Sikh political prisoner issue and created chaose on the Nanakshahi Calendar.
During Bikram Majithia’s distortion of Gurbani, the Jathedar handed him a punishment of sewa at all five takhts causing Sikh sentiments to flare. It is a blessing of a Sikh to do sewa at all five Takhts and so such a punishment was rejected by the vast majority of Sikhs worldwide.
The Jathedar has failed on many issue and his silence against the Badal family has hurt the Sikh community worldwide immensely.
