Sikh activists on Saturday protested against Punjab Revenue Minister Bikramjit Singh Majithia for allegedly distorting the “Gurbani” while canvassing for BJP’s Amritsar candidate Arun Jaitley.
The activists burnt an effigy of Mr. Majithia and took out a march from Gurdwara Nimmawala to Gurdwara Chhevin Patshahi against the alleged blasphemy.
The activists demanded Mr. Majithia’s excommunication from the ‘Sikh panth’ for changing a word of Guru Gobind Singh’s hymn.
Mr. Majithia was reported to have changed a word in the concluding part of Guru Gobind Singh’s hymn to tailor it to suit his wish for Mr. Jaitley’s victory.
The hymn is considered by the Sikhs as their religious song.- PTI
