Congressmen not allowed to pray for Sidhu

india Updated: Dec 05, 2006 11:31 IST

Sikh priests at Akal Takht (highest Sikh temporal seat) in Amritsar on Tuesday refused to perform Ardas (prayers under Sikh rituals) as suggested by some Congressmen to thank the Almighty for the conviction of cricketer-turned- politician Navjot Singh Sidhu in a murder case.

A group of Congressmen led by district (rural) president Sukhjinder Singh Majithia went to the Akal Takht to perform Ardas to thank theAlmighty for Sidhu's conviction. But priests there refused to perform the prayer.

Singh said during the prayer at Akal Takht they prayed to the Almighty for the adequate quantum of punishment for Sidhu so that justice was delivered to the victim's family.
