Sikh memorial: Akal Takht summons Sarna

Akal Takht, the highest temporal seat of Sikhs, on Monday summoned former Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) president Paramjit Singh Sarna to appear before it for allegedly creating hurdles in the construction of a memorial in Delhi in the memory of members of the community killed in the 1984 riots.

Akal Takht, the highest temporal seat of Sikhs, on Monday summoned former Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) president Paramjit Singh Sarna to appear before it for allegedly creating hurdles in the construction of a memorial in Delhi in the memory of members of the community killed in the 1984 riots.

The Sikh head priests have asked Sarna to give a clarification in person as to why he hurt the feelings of the community.

Sarna had recently moved the Delhi High Court with the plea that the proposed memorial should not be allowed to be constructed inside Gurdwara Rakabganj as announced by DSGMC president Manjit Singh GK. The decision to summon Sarna was taken during a marathon meeting of five Sikh head priests here. PTI
