Amritsar, August 5

A day after former member of SGPC’s Dharam Parchar Committee Rattan Singh Jaffarwal and committee member from Kadian Gurinderpal Singh Gora were declared ‘tankhaiyas’ by the Akal Takht, both submitted their apologies to the Takht.

They were charged with violating Akal Takht’s ‘hukumnama’ against Langah by having association with him and seeking pardon for him from the ‘panj pyaras’ of Nihang organisation Tarna Dal on August 3.

They said they were committed to the Akal Takht and had submitted their clarification to the Secretariat. They had appealed to the Jathedar to listen to their pleas sympathetically and pardon them, they said.

On his picture with Langah that went viral, Gora said he never participated in the ‘amrit sanchar’ ceremony and the picture might be morphed.

Langah was excommunicated by the Akal Takht on October 5, 2017, after his objectionable video had gone viral. Though he was acquitted by the court later as the complainant withdrew the charges, the Akal Takht’s verdict stands till date.
