Passing another ‘gurmata’ (religious decree) outside the Akal Takht, parallel ‘jathedars’ appointed by the radicals stated on Friday here that they will take action against Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on October 26 for not appearing before them with action-taken report in the sacrilege cases.

After a brief meeting at the highest temporal seat of the Sikh faith, “acting Akal Takht jathedar” Dhian Singh Mand, and “jathedars” Amrik Singh Ajnala (Kesgarh Sahib) and Baljit Singh Daduwal (Damdama Sahib) said they had summoned Sukhbir as home department head and extended the deadline twice.

“Sikhs are hurt that those behind sacrilege haven’t been caught. We’ll ask Sikh public how to treat Sukhbir,” Mand told the media.
