The Akal Takht — the highest temporal seat of the Sikh religion — on Thursday said it has pardoned Dera Sacha Sauda sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh following a written apology from him.
Akal Takht jathedar (chief) Gurbachan Singh told media persons here that the sect chief wrote an apology letter to the Akal Takht in which he said he had no intention to show disrespect to the Sikh Gurus or hurt the religious sentiments of the Sikh community.
Seeking to put behind a bitter row between them, Akal Takht, the supreme temporal seat of Sikhs, today said it has pardoned Dera Sacha Sauda sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, accused of hurting the sentiments of Sikhs, following a letter of apology from him.In the year 2007, the Dera Sacha Sauda chief was accused by the Sikh clergy of attiring himself as the tenth Sikh Guru, Gobind Singh, during a religious congregation of the sect at its headquarters in Sirsa, Haryana. Violent clashes had broken out between Dera followers and Sikhs in parts of Punjab at that time.After a marathon meeting of the Takht here, Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh said the Takht received a written apology recently from the chief of the Sirsa-headquartered sect in which Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has stated that he has deep respect and regard for Guru Gobind Singh as well as Sikh religion and Sikh community.
The Akal Takht head said the sect chief was asked to refrain from any actions in future which could hurt religious sentiments of Sikhs.
Takht Damdama Sahib Jathedar and Head Granthi of Sri Akal Takht Sahib, Bhai Gurmukh Singh, after a year and a half, broke his secret secret after disclosing the circumstances of the situation. Political leaders take the support of religion to run their political shopkeeping. After these disclosures, the end of Dera Sacha’s apology high profile drama ended, but a new debate started here, how politicians misbehave religious and religious people to make their political footprint. In today’s conversation with the chosen journalists at Bhai Sahib, Bhai Gurmukh Singh said in a very heartfelt heart that the name of him being brought in the letter of Sirsa chief was due to the editor of a large Punjabi newspaper published from Jalandhar. It is repeatedly being tossed and it is not true.
Bhai Gurmukh Singh said that all the dramas had been created much before the wardrobe of the Dera chief. When all the beds were read, the jathedars were called in Chandigarh and the government order to complete the process of forgiveness was chanted.
Bhai Gurmukh Singh said that on September 15, 2015, when he was at Takht Sri Damdams Sahib, he received a call from Giani Gurbachan Singh Jathedar Sri Akal Takht that in the morning we have to go to Chandigarh, Badal Sahib has remembered it. Come to Amritsar this evening in the evening. Bhai Gurmukh Singh recalled that he came to Amritsar in the evening, where we all went to Chandigarh via a car of Giani Gurbachan Singh Jathedar Akal Takht.
At Chandigarh, on September 16, 2015, we reached the official residence of Chief Jathedar, Sri Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh, Takht Sri Kesgarh Sahib Sahib Jathedar Giani Mall Singh, and Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal. The government residence of Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal was also present at that time with the President of Shiromani Akali Dal Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal and Cabinet Minister Mr. Daljit Singh Cheema.
Bhai Gurmukh Singh said that after the formal talk, the Punjab Deputy Chief Minister asked Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal that for the sake of which the Singh Sahibans have been invited, call it. On the request of Mr. Badal, Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal, while extending a letter to us, said that this matter should be enforced immediately after taking immediate action.
Bhai Gurmukh Singh said that this letter, written in Hindi, was from Dera Sirsa chief. All of us were shocked to see the letters of the Singh Sahiban. We were feeling that we are trying to get the matter resolved very quickly. After reading and listening to the letter Giani Gurbachan Singh while addressing all the leaders said that this letter should be delivered to Sri Akal Takht Sahib and this will only be considered in the five Sikh Gurus. It was here that it was held that it will be given to the Khalsa Panth only at the first meeting of the Jathedars to be held at Sri Akal Takht Sahib after reaching Sri Akal Takht Sahib. We said that the feelings of the whole nation are connected with this matter, so instead of hurrying the matter, we should be given some time so that we can make a minimum national opinion on the decision taken on this matter.
Bhai Gurmukh Singh said that Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal was not in the mood to tolerate any delay in this matter. He said that you should make a decision as soon as possible on this matter. On this, all the Jathedars, with a voice, asked Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal and Mr. Parkash Singh Badal to send this letter to Sri Akal Takht Sahib first then we can think about it. When we started coming back to Chandigarh, I told Mr. Parkash Singh Badal that you are similar to our elders but do not invite us at government accommodation like this. We get thousands of people every day. Borrow the meeting with the elders. Bhai Gurmukh Singh said that I also told Mr. Badal that today it seems like you have summoned us. On hearing this, the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal said that this would be the future.
Bhai Gurmukh Singh said that this matter began again on the evening of September 23, 2015 when the Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh, Takht Sri Kesgarh Sahib Sahib Jathedar Giani Mall Singh, Takht Sri Harmandir Ji Patna Sahib Jathedar Giani Iqbal Singh came to his residence in Amritsar and our conversation on the matter of the Dera Sacha Sauda chief came to light. Bhai Gurmukh Singh said that I repeatedly requested Saha Singh Sahiban to save the love and fame of Sri Akal Takht Sahib on this matter. In our interaction, the phone call of the then Deputy Chief Minister Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal came on the mobile phone of Giani Gurbachan Singh, whom Giani Gurbachan Singh made with my friend Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal. Mr. Badal repeatedly insisted on not restraining the Dera Sacha Sauda chief for his help in the apology process. I said that Dera chief has praised our Guru so we should keep the focus of Panthic sentiment in our decision making at least in this matter. Bhai Gurmukh Singh said that the personal assistant of the Deputy Chief Minister Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal and some other close associates also came to their house and the pressure to make them pressurized. In addition to privatizing the press, the phone call continued with Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal till late last night. I did not believe all the pressure was being put on me only, Mr. Badal was repeatedly saying that when the rest of the Singh
