HOSHIARPUR: The Dal Khalsa questions the rationale and motive behind the proposed changes in the Nanakshahi calendar by the SGPC and Sant Samaj.
In a statement party president H S Dhami rued that the SGPC was going to kill the letter and spirit of the Nanakshahi Calendar in its executive meet scheduled for Sunday.
“I believe that the present house of the SGPC has completed its five year tenure and being in extension mode it cannot take policy decisions”.
Describing the SGPC head as spineless person, he condemned the SGPC and the SAD leadership for pushing the Sikhs into a Brahmanical fold by mixing the Nanakshahi calendar with Bikrami calendar”.
Issuing stern warning to Jathedar Avtar Singh, the leader of the radical group said his name (SGPC chief) would be recorded as a "culprit" of the community in the contemporary Sikh history.
Recalling the blunders of the SGPC, he said this was not the first time that the SGPC was taking a U-turn. The All India Gurdwara Bill, Heritage status for Darbar Sahib and so on met the same fate, he rued.
