The president of the youth wing of SAD ( Mann) said on Friday that the Akal Takht jathedar had played a cruel joke with the Sikh community by announcing a small punishment of washing utensils to state revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia. The guilty should have been excommunicated from the community for distorting a "shabad (hymn)" from Gurbani.
Citing an example, Randev Singh Debi, president of the youth wing of the SAD (Mann) said that even Guru Har Rai Ji had awarded punishment of excommunication to his own son Ram Rai for distorting the hymns of Guru Granth Sahib.
In a press release issued by SAD ( Mann, Debi also added that the punishment awarded to Majithia was not as per the tenets of the Sikh community and added that SAD patron Parkash Singh Badal was also guilty of making a statement in favour of Majithia that the latter had committed a mere mistake. He urged the members of the community to rise to the occasion and demand requisite punishment of excommunication of Majithia as well as Badal which would become a lesson to others.
