Though the results of the Delhi Shiromani Gurdwara Management Committee elections are not declared as yet, but from the vote counting so far, it appears that Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) is heading for clear a majority in the elections.

Badal sweeps Delhi Gurdwara Poll

Wednesday, January, 30 2013 - 12:38

CHANDIGARH: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal-led Shiromani Akali Dal has swept the the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee elections with 23 seats out of the total 46 constituencies. Paramjit Singh Sarna-led SAD-Delhi, on the other hand, could bag only five seats.

Sarna, the outgoing president of the DSGMC, himself lost the election from Punjabi Bagh to young leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa.

A dejected Sarna has accepted the defeat and congratulated the Shiromani Akali Dal.

It is after a decade that the Shiromani Akali Dal has succeeded in getting control of the Delhi gurdwaras.

This election could be a trend setter for the forthcoming Delhi Assembly election.

What is the difference between evil and evil?

At least there there was a counter power to Badal regime in the form of Sarna brothers. Before the SGPC president Gurcharan Singh Tohra also stood up to Badal.

Now the SGPC president Sardar Makkar is in the pocket of Badal, Jathedars awarded Badal "Panth Rattan", Sant Samaj now shares stages and campaigns for Badal and if the above news is true then Badal will have even more power.

Those that think that Akali Dal Badal will now get justice for 1984 Delhi riot victims need a reality check. Please tell me what justice has been gained for the innocent Singhs who have been killed and tortured by the Punjab police under Badal regime? Why are panthic Gursikhs like bhai baljit singh daduwal, daljit singh bittu, kulbir singh barapind continually arrested? Why has the murderer of shaheed bhai Jaspal Singh jee not been punished?

Why did the Badal regime give ticket to the likes of Azhar Alam and promote Sumedh Saini to DGP?

Regardless of the winner of these elections things will stay the same for Sikhs - no justice and oppression against those that speak the truth.

The Sikh Panth is crying out for a spiritual leader and a true Sant Sipahi. The loss of Sant Jarnail Singh jee Bhindranwale left a big void in the Panth in regards to leadership. Unfortunately nobody has really come close to Sant jee in terms of ability to inspire and mobile the masses and most importantly to speak the truth.

Mera Satguru Sache Paathshah Mehar Karan!

The only positive I see out of this is that people like Sarbjit Dhunda will not be able to use Gurdwara Bangla Sahib and Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib to do his "missionary" parchaar. The Missionary college in Ludhiana will also see a lot of its influence disappear in Delhi.

Daas does not think banning so called Sikh parcharks like Sarbjit Singh Dhunda and Inder Singh Ghugga is the best option and not according to Gurmat. The best option to fight these parcharks is to to fight fire with fire i.e. go to the same areas and Gurdwaras and do parchar of importance of Naam Simran, Nitnem Banees such as Jaap Sahib and Choupai Sahib, respecting mahaan Gursikhs/Jathas/Taksaals of the past such as Damdami Taksal, AKJ, Nihangs e.t.c. We require Gursikhs who can do critical analysis of the points raised by the likes Ghugga and respond using Gurbani, Sikh Ithihaas, Rehitnaames/Historical Documents and overall Gurmat Sidhaant - (this was done few years back by Singhs from Toronto).

When we ban these parchark's or protest inside Gurdwaras it seems to backfire. I think the better strategy going forward is increase Parchaar of Gurmat in Gurdwara Sahib's and provide more Gurmat literature and knowledge to the sangat. Also we should debate Sarbjit Singh Dhunda and other with similar viewpoints when we get the chance. However we must make sure that those debating them should have the required Gurmat Sidhaant and Gurmukhi Jeevaan (keeping rehits of Guru Sahib).

I hope I am wrong and Akal Dal Badal can deliver on its promises i.e. providing justice to 1984 riot victims in Dehli. However if we study the past and even the present, this does not seem likely.

Fair enough, but i must ask why double standard when it comes to banning left wing hippy- niddar not right wing ferengi/bhausari dhunda/ghagga?? Oh let me guess, one suits tribal group beleif and other one does not..!!???!! Khalsa have advait samdrisht nirvair nirbhaou attributes and khalsa calls spade a spade and don't care about being politically diplomatically correct, khalsa is not cheap chamleon over zealous type hypocrite... Lets condemn and ban them both equally lets not have soft corners/soft spot those who want to super impose their ideology on sikhi be it both right-protestant/teja singh and left- hippy snatans...!!

The sad fact is no one really genuinely cares about khalsa panth anymore, its all about - "one group subtly endorsing another for survival/sustain power and control", it's all about "you scratch my back, i scratch yours", its all about backroom deals all in garb of unity meeting which is nothing but cheap political diplomatic stunt/farce to ensure power and make sure sheeps under them, are well under their control..!!!!

It is good that the anti Akal Takhat, Congress boot-licker Sarna lost. But, let's not be fooled into thinking that Badal is pro Akal Takhat. He only talks about Sikh issues when he needs a stick to beat Congress with. Badal has destroyed the concept and principle of Akal Takhat......he only talks about it now because he is in control of it. Remember that BJP has been in power twice since 1984.....did they punish the guilty Congress devils ??? No. BJP will probably win the next general election and time will tell whether Badal will raise the 1984 issue or will do what he always does and talk about it at election time ONLY.

    • It's not even about religion anymore. Most of us are trying to survive out here in the West.  Myself dont care for Sikhi as much as I use to. Everything is in waheguru ji's hand whether or we will survive in the coming years.  
    • Is it the end of SGPC? I mean there’s one in Punjab, one in Haryana and Delhi.  Recently Hazur Sahib removed 2 members of it. It was a British creation in the 1920s.
    • In the uk we have Ramgharia gurdwaras, in some places ther are called Ramgharia sabha! However, I think most gurdwaras and even sikhs calling themselves "Ramgharia" are scamming us as they have weak or no connections to Ramgharia misl, and are just using the fact that they are tarkhans they can use the Ramgharia term because Jassa Singh Ramgharia was from tarkhan background. Please prove me wrong!   Also, I have been observing gurdwaras since I was young. I remember when I was a child in the 80s and 90s, Singh Sabha gurdwaras still allowed shoes and langar was eaten on tables, in the times when the adults used to work all the time, doing double shifts etc. However in the 2000s we can see a change in Singh Sabha gurdwaras as well as some other gurdwaras, where shoes are no longer allowed, and we have a lot of space to sit on the floor and do pangat in langar.  It's really strange to see so many tables in gurdwaras after seeing langar done exclusivily on the floor gurdwaras in Panjab and India. Just look at Harimandir Sahib, 4 takht, and many other gurdwaras back home. Now, across London, Slough and Berkshire, midlands, I have noticed Ramgharia gurdwaras allow shoes into langar and have little or no accommodation for sitting on the floor. It is bizarre to see in Ramgharia gurdwaras, the sangat coming from doing sangat or matha tek in divan hall, and then putting on their shoes to go to langar. Like we are going to a restaurant or something! What is this, is it some kind of kenya/east africa sikh colonial army era tradition to keep doing this, even after the other gurdwaras have moved back to giving satkar and respect for langar maryada? Then we come to the scam, in the Ramgharia gurdwaras, there seems to be more links to East Africa sikhs than Ramgharia misl. There are more trim Singhs with Kenya paghs on Ramgharia gurdwara committees compared to more sabat surat Singhs on Singh sabha committees, from my observations in these England regions. You will find more kenya pagh and trim or fixo darhi, than bana walay Singh in these gurdwaras, again the Ramgharia label is scamming us, as Ramgharia is used for sabat soorat Singhs from the misl, especially those tuned to bana (and open beard is part of bana). Also, I have listened to Rehraas Sahib in some Ramgharia gurdwaras, and they read the disfigured bhasauria SGPC style of Chaupai Sahib (such as the way performed at Harimandir Sahib the past 100 years), skipping arril and the last lines of kabyo baach benti, which makes them more like a Singh Sabha gurdwara and far removed from being Ramgharia due to having similar disrespect towarda bani as Singh sabha gurdwaras, as Ramgharia misl would respect dasam bani and read the full kabyo baach benti. So the langar thing is bizarre, and now I think of it it's disrespectful. And the use of Ramgharia sikhs and Ramgharia gurdwaras term is a scam as they are anything but, as there is so much disrespect to be associated with the practices of Ramgharia misl! Even the fact they celebrate Maharaja Jassa Singh Ramgharia's birthday doesn't allow them any forgiveness or courtesy! This goes double for the Slough Ramgharia Singh Sabha, as they have a statue of Jassa Singh Ramgharia, and yet are their actions related to actual Ramgharia? Yeh, let's not fall for the scam! and sikhs that are sangat in those gurdwaras, really need to step up and get in those committees and change things for chardi kala! We need to see more chardikala Singhs running things, not trim Singhs and fixo Singhs!
    • Japji Sahib can be done anytime within 24 hours, but ideal time is before breakfast.  Ardaas after is optional but if you can make it necessary will be ideal. When it comes to paat more the merrier.  Meat / alc should be in separate rooms to Gutke Sahibs. It is possible no matter how small the house. WAIT! Isn't all food in the kitchen??  You can still do paat after meat n alc. Nothing wrong there... just wash yer hands! (Obviously).
