Minority Panel Issues Notices To DSGMC Office-Bearers For Violation Of Religious Code

Darpan News Desk IANS, 04 Apr, 2019
  • Minority Panel Issues Notices To DSGMC Office-Bearers For Violation Of Religious Code

A controversy has erupted after the Delhi Minorities Commission issued notices to the president and several members of the Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee on a complaint charging them with acts contrary to religious code of conduct.


Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) president Manjinder Singh Sirsa rejected the charges and alleged "political conspiracy" behind the move.


The DSGMC is answerable only to the Akal Takht, and not any government or its bodies, he said.


"This is a politically motivated move by a member of Delhi Minorities Commission, who earlier served as a joint secretary of DSGMC against whom there are charges of corruption. No government or its bodies can question us like this, we are answerable only to Akal Takht," Sirsa told.


Delhi Minorities Commission member Kartar Singh Kochhar said that notices were issued to 20 people, including DSGMC office-bearers, on March 25.


"We have received replies of only four persons only. We will summon those who fail to reply to our notice," Kochhar said.


"The Minorities Commission has the locus standi on the issue as Delhi government conducts the elections of DSGMC under the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Act, 1971," he asserted.


The complaint was received by the commission on January 29 from Daljeet Singh, who accused the DSGMC members of violating the tenets of Sikh religion.


While Sirsa denied the charges as "baseless and prompted by the ruling AAP", Kochhar said the accused may go to court on the issue of notice if they believed the Commission had no jurisdiction in the matter.
