Jathedar (Executive) Sri Akal Takht Sahib, Sri Amritsar
Singh Sahib Bhai Harpreet Singh
The time now is for unity of the Sikhs worldwide. We as Sikhs can not survive infighting. Our approach has to be a solution oriented approach. As a Jathedar of the important institution, you should be building consensus.
Several of your committees over years and other organizations have reported printing lapses and errors and nothing was done over it. Jathedar Vedanti Ji and Bhai Talwara Ji and other honorable Sevadars had worked on removing these lapses from The Guru Sahib.
You Sir are a great scholar of Islam. Muslims solved the problem of multiple versions of the Quran by calling all the experts and created a unanimous solution by dialogue.
Similarly you have access to the best of the Sikh thinkers, Missionary Colleges, and the work of Jathedar Vedanti Ji and Talwara Ji, to come up with the consensus solution. Please take charge and implement the changes, Changes are sometimes unpalatable but are important to keep the sanctity of the Guru’s Bani. Let it be a decision of Consensus of the Sikh Thinkers, to keep or Remove Ragmala or other critical decision you might have to take.
Politics should not be a factor, our love for Guru’ Divine word, should be the deciding factor to take the righteous path. Individually we may be in different political parties or different sects, but love for our Guru is the same. Sir, Sikhs are a global force now, we see many successful young kids Running Major Corporations and Banks and even in White House. As a chief of SGPC you have to keep a Global vision, and each decision how it affects them. As a spokesman of Sikhs you are at the same level as the Dalai Lama and Pope Francis.
Sikh Misls did not get along well with each other, but in Gurmatta they were all one. With this unity they were able to lay the foundation of Sikh Empire. Sir you are at an important juncture where all are looking towards you for guidance, please do what Sikh Misls had done in Crisis. From that unity rose Sikh Empire. Sir, this unity will be a stepping stone for the Global Sikh Empire.
Encl: Appeal By Jathedars & Missionaries for consensus solution.
