Amritsar, January 21

Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Raghbir Singh and SGPC president Harjinder Singh Dhami have expressed gratitude for the invite to the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ (consecration ceremony) at the Ram Temple in Ayodhya on January 22, but fell short of mentioning whether they would attend it or not.

Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra Trust had extended invitation to the Akal Takht Jathedar and SGPC president to attend the event through the representatives of the Rashtriya Sikh Sangat, a Sikh affiliate of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Giani Raghbir Singh and Harjinder Singh Dhami said that as followers of Gurbani and the ten Gurus, the beliefs of every religion was highly respected. “We wish that religious freedom, communal harmony and peace prevails in the world,” they said.

Saying that the Sikhs have a distinct identity with no place for idol worship, various Sikh organisations have appealed to the Akal Takht, seeking directions for all Takht jathedars and other Sikh bodies to stay away from the event.
