Amritsar, May 15 : Followers of the Damdami Taksal (Bhindranwala) and other Sikh organizations today set effigies of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Sant Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh ablaze in protest against an ad that showed the latter dressed as Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth spiritual head of the Sikh community.

The protesters also marched through the streets of Amritsar with placards and unsheathed swords. The march commenced from the Hall Gate and concluded at the Akal Takht Sahib.

Gunam Singh, a follower, said that if the government failed to take action against Rahim Singh, the Damdami Taksal (Bhindranwala) activists would take the law into their own hands and punish him.

Charanjit Singh, another follower, said Gurmeet Singh Ram Raheem Singh had not only hurt the sentiments of Sikhs, but was also key perpetrator of violence in Punjab and other parts of India.

The Jathedar of the Akal Takht, Giani Joginder Singh Vedanti, has taken serious note of the incident, but appealed to the protesters to exercise restraint.
