Activists of the Dal Khalsa, a Sikh hardliner group, on Friday entered into a scuffle with members of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) task force over the release of the original version of Nanakshahi calendar from the Akal Takht secretariat in Amritsar.

The calendar carried a photograph of the Kartarpur corridor opening ceremony being addressed by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. The Takht secretariat incharge intervened and allowed the Dal Khalsa members to release the calendar from the outside platform of the secretariat.
