CHANDIGARH: Haryana Shiromani Gurdwara Management Committee (HSGMC) on Thursday urged Akal Takht, the highest temporal seat of the Sikh community, to reconsider the decision of excommunicating Sikh leaders from the state.

The 41 member (ad hoc) HSGMC on Thursday convened a general house meeting at Kurukshetra and passed a unanimous resolution urging the Akal Takht to reconsider the decision of excommunicating J S Jhinda and Didar Singh Nalwi and state finance minister H S Chattha. “I have till date not received any edict from the Akal Takht, once I receive it I will go and abide by its edict and also serve what ever punishment I am given,” Chatha said.

Meanwhile, the Punjab Assembly on Thursday passed by voice-vote a resolution recommending the state government to take up the matter with the Centre to restrain states from interfering in the religious affairs/institutions of other states.
