Amritsar, June 19

A Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) member has sought action against own president Manjinder Singh Sirsa for allegedly violating norms laid down for Amritdhari Sikhs.

Bhai Chaman Singh gave a memorandum to the Akal Takht secretariat here today and met Takht Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh, who promised a probe into the allegations.

In the communique, he alleged Sirsa was an apostate and “ignorant of Gurmat”, as he used to trim beard. “Despite asking him to mend ways, he did not heed to the advice. Eventually, a devout Sikh went to court against him over violation of the Sikh religious norms.” On this, Sirsa said, “Bhai Chaman Singh is a compulsive opponent. He was a puppet in the hands of the BJP. So he stood against every work of the DSGMC in Delhi.” — TNS
