The president of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Manjit Singh GK said on Monday that he has no objection if the All India Act is made and all the gurdwara committees fall under it.
Singh told ANI, "They have said that the Delhi Gurdwara Committee should come under SGPC. As per my understanding, Delhi Gurdwara Committee has already stamped the All India Act. According to that, all the gurdwaras should come under one act.
"I understand that we have a minority community. I don't have any objection if All India Act is made and all the committees come under that. The impact of unity of our minority community shall be huge. As a result whatever the government is trying to do to divide us will eventually fail," he added.
Yesterday, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal met Prime Minister Narendra Modi over bifurcation of the SGPC.
The Haryana Assembly passed a bill last week for a separate Haryana Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (HSGPC), which would be set up to manage gurdwaras in the state.
