  1. When i last went to darbar sahib few years back I was confused to why names of indian army sikh soldiers were on the walls. I've been wondering for a few years and tried to find information about this but haven't been unable to so far. Does anyone know what kinda writings is on these walls? and why the names of soldiers are there? I personally find it disrespectful and inappropriate to have the names of Sikh soldiers who fought for non-sikh indian or british india colonialist regimes at our holiest site.

  4. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾ॥ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਿਹ॥ Giani Jaswinder Singh, a ‘granthi’ of Sri Harmandir Sahib, on Thursday resigned after the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) sought his resignation. The decision to seek the granthi’s resignation was taken by the SGPC executive at a recent meeting held in Chandigarh and it was conveyed to him on Thursday, who subsequently put in his papers. The decision to seek the granthi’s resignation was taken after he was “found absent from his duty” on the morning of April 5. His duty involved carrying to the Guru Granth Sahib on the ‘palki sahib’ from the Akal Takht to the sanctum sanctorum for the ‘parkash’ of the scripture, which takes place at 4.30am daily. His duty also involved doing ‘parkash’ of the scripture, and then taking the ‘vaak’ (order of the day). As per tradition, the duty, which is a daily affair, is assigned to a senior granthi of the sanctum sanctorum. However, Jaswinder Singh “did not turn up” at 4.30am on April 5, following which a SGPC official rang him up and informed him of his duty as per the rooster, however, “he still failed to turn up on the grounds that it was not his turn”. “Despite it being a serious offence, considering the importance of the duty, the SGPC still decided to go soft on the granthi and sought his resignation instead of suspending him or terminating his services,” said SGPC officials. “This is not the first time that Jaswinder Singh was hauled up for reasons connected with his duties. Last year too, he was demoted from ‘head granthi’ to granthi after he skipped some portions of the ‘rehras’ (evening prayer), while reciting the prayer at the sanctum sanctorum,” they added.
