Guru Granth Sahib

Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) chief Avtar Singh Makkar has condemned the open sale of ‘swaroops’ of Guru Granth Sahib at a ‘Car Boot Sale’ in Wolverhampton town in the West Midlands in England.

In a release issued here on Thursday, Makkar said that this amounted to showing disrespect to the holy book. The Sikh scripture cannot be put up for sale in bazaar or any other place, he added. He appealed to the British government to take steps to check such incidents in future.
