The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee has no plans to organise special religious ceremonies in memory or in honour of the assassins of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, according to its president Manjit Singh G.K..

Talking to The Hindu , Mr. Singh said in the past 29 years the DSGMC has never honoured any of the assassins of Ms. Gandhi and there is no question of doing so now.

While Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee through its Nanakshahi calendar does mark certain “historic days” and has been honouring various Sikh figures, Mr. Singh said “such ceremonies are performed by Akal Takht, but DSGMC has never been a part of them”.

“If any person or their family wants to perform a prayer meeting or paath , it is their personal issue. But the DSGMC as a committee does not associate with them,” he said.

Averring that no request has been received from the Akal Takht to honour any terrorists or other persons, Mr. Singh said the question of the Committee acting in the matter does not arise.

“It is not on our agenda and neither are we going to do it,” he said.
