Gurdwara Waraich issue: Sikhs, Dera Radha Soami reconcile

CHANDIGARH: Gurdwara Waraich issue, over which Sikh radicals and followers of Dera Radha Soami had been at loggerheads for long, has been resolved. Burying the hatched on the occasion of ‘Viyay Dashmi’ that symbolises the victory of good over evil, the two warring factions have entered into an agreement. The move that came as a pleasant surprise has been taken keeping into account ‘peace of Punjab’ by the two opposing groups.

Members of the Sikh community had been opposing the dismantling of the gurdwara in Waraich village of district Beas by followers of Dera Radha Soami. In their fervent protest, the Sikhs had even gone as far as virtually boycotting head of Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh.

The radicals who were opposing the gurdwara demolition by Dera followers mainly included Sikh panthic bodies Akali Dal Panch Pradhani, Simranjit Singh Mann-led Shiromani Akali Dal (Amrritsar), Khalsa Action Committee, Dal Khalsa, Damdmi Taksal and Panthic Sewa Lehar.

According to reports, some leaders from the radical Sikh groups met Gurinder Singh Dhillon, head of Dera Radha Soami. The details of the meeting are yet to be made public.

As per the sources, all the issues between the two groups have been resolved and the decision taken by the leaders of both the sects will be made public soon. However, an insider revealed that the Dera chief has offered to hand over the gurdwara to the Sikh religious bodies.

It is pertinent to mention that trouble between the two groups started brewing in July this year. The disputed piece of land on which a one-room gurdwara existed, belonging to the Panchayat, was sold to Dera Radha Soami sect without obtaining the mandatory approval from Director of Panchayats of Punjab Government. Tension mounted further after members of Dera Radha Soami sect allegedly destroyed a section of the gurudwara.

The situation threatened to snowball into a major communal tension. In order to control the same, heavy police force was deployed on the site to avoid any untoward incident. The Akal Takht had directed the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Commitee (SGPC) to form a three-member committee to probe into the land dispute between Sikh community and followers of Dera Radha Soami over the issue. Both the communities were asked to stay away from the land for a week while the SGPC conducted its probe.

Tension between the two groups was somewhat defused when on September 26, chief of Radhasoami sect Gurinder Singh Dhillon paid obeisance at the Golden Temple. Dhillon was even given a Siropa (robe of honour) by the priest sitting inside the sanctum sanctorum.

    • i wouldn't say it's based on war. Id say its based on how one should live their life according through those lenses. Is war apart of life? unfortunately yes it is. We have our way and they have their own, the only problem is that they have a supremacist attitude and treat minorities like <banned word filter activated>. Now they aren't the only ones that do this however in our history we have mostly been through this kind of thing by them then later on Christians. Today they are still a huge problem but an equally bigger if not worse problem is the liberalism bull being shoved our throats

    • I would highly recommend doing one thing at home. Once a week, pick any week, do kes ishnaan and make Kadah prasaad at home.  Many here may / may not agree with me, but make it according to Taksaal Maryaad is the best way as it's the traditional way of preparing it, going back to Guru Ji's time.  Nothing too difficult. Get Iron Kadahi (fryer) and iron saucepan (make sure it's NOT Non stick but classic or normal iron) 3 steel bowls (caulia). Butter, flour, sugar in equal measures. Pop equal measure of water per serving (so let's say five ingredients are 1kg that'll be 5kg water) in the saucepan let it boil on high heat first then low after adding sugar in the hot water. Then let butter melt in the kadahi before inserting flour, mix and keep on medium heat. IMPORTANT! At this stage start Japji Sahib the paat very, very slow. Then do Jaap Sahib. The flour mixture must go dark brown. Add the heated water mixture then stir until the mixture looks golden brown.  Cover the Kadahi with a white cloth and leave on a table placed with a cloth. As it's cooling down do Anand Sahib (40 Stanzas) then do Ardaas. Whatever you ask for your situation will become 1000 times better. After Ardaas and before distribution of Prassad to all family members, you can even do more Baanias over it (Chandi d vaar 5 times is favoured) this up keeps the degh and gives it an extra umph. However, Mool Mantar and Gurmantar too is good enough. Some will even get a steel thali and five steel bowls to take out for panj pyaare. This too must b covered with a white cloth. However, a few mins later the prasaad in the five caulia can be inserted back into the main bowl.  NOW the Prassad can b distributed to fam members, friends, colleagues etc etc.   
    • Academic who tried importing child sex doll from China avoids jail after police found child abuse images on his computer following customs tip-off Malcolm Young was put on the radar of Northumbria Police buying the sex doll  61-year-old's purchase was intercepted by Border Force officials, raising alarm  Following an eight day long trial, a jury found Young guilty of all five counts  An academic has been caught with child abuse images after buying a child sex doll from China that looked like his ex-girlfriend. Tech professional Malcolm Young was put on the radar of Northumbria Police when he attempted to import the 3ft2, flat-chested doll, with clothing and accessories, in 2017. The 61-year-old's purchase was intercepted by Border Force officials who told detectives of their concerns about the package.     Officers visited Young's home in the East Woodburn area of Northumberland to question him about the doll and seized his computers and phone.   The electronics were reviewed and officers uncovered indecent images of children on his computer that Young had tried to delete. Young, of East Woodburn, Northumberland, was charged with four counts of making indecent images of children and one count of tax evasion, concerning the doll. He denied his guilt and tried to convince a jury at Newcastle Crown Court that he purchased the small doll, not based on its likeness to a child but because it resembled an athletic female body type. Prosecutor Graham O'Sullivan told the court: 'He said he had ordered a doll that looked like an ex-girlfriend, that he had cancelled, and had not ordered any child sex doll.' Young had also claimed that the deleted images found on his device were not his but may have been made by people visiting his home while attending parties. Following an eight day long trial, a jury found Young guilty of all five counts. The court heard the charges related to one Category A image, the most serious, two Category B and 35 Category C. He was sentenced to 18 months in jail, suspended for two years, and was ordered to carry out rehabilitation and has been subjected to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order. Also, he must pay £9,480 prosecution costs. At his sentence hearing today, Christopher Knox, defending, said Young, who had been living in Spain and has a boat there, made his money through tech industries. But Mr Knox added: 'He has had a very successful career that has been totally destroyed. 'He won't be able to be employed by anyone ever again in the fields in which he has excelled.' Judge Stephen Earl sentenced Young to 18 months imprisonment, suspended for two years, with rehabilitation requirements. Young was even photographed with former Prime Minister who came to the opening of his company e-Therapeutics. The judge said Young had 'lost a lot', including a 'chancellorship at the University of Newcastle', due to his offending and added: 'His fall from grace is long and hard'. The judge added: 'This whole issue came to light as a result of the fact the defendant had ordered what can only be described as a child sex doll.' Judge Earl said Young had claimed in his defence he had not wanted a child sex doll and had cancelled what he ordered, which was a doll he 'wanted to look like Dawn, his former partner'. Young was even photographed with former Prime Minister who came to the opening of his company e-Therapeutics     The judge said Young had produced pictures of 'Dawn' during the trial, who was described as a 'small adult'. Detective Constable Alison Felton led the investigation for Northumbria Police and said after the conviction Young thought he was 'above the law'. She said: 'This has been a long and protracted investigation involving the making of indecent images and the importation of a child-like sex doll. 'We are committed to making sure that offenders are brought to justice, no matter who they are or however long it takes. 'Young thought that he was above the law. He has taken no responsibility for his crimes and the jury saw through the preposterous account he gave to the court.'   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10025733/Academic-tried-importing-child-sex-doll-China-avoids-jail.html
