Amritsar, May 15 : The five priests of the Akal Takht on Tuesday warned against fiddling with Sikh traditions and principles.

Addressing a news conference here this evening, the five priests, led by Akal Takht Jathedar Joginder Singh Vedanti, expressed their objections over the alleged blasphemous acts of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh of the Dera Sacha Sauda. The five high priests said that the Khalsa Panth is capable of tackling elements fiddling with Sikh traditions laid down by the ten Sikh Guru and the Guru Granth Sahib.

The high priests said that they would be convening a meeting on May 17 at the Damdama Sahib to discuss the Ram Rahim Singh incident.

Condemning the incident, SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar blamed the previous Congress Government headed by Chief Minister Captain (retired) Amarinder Singh for instigating Dera Sacha Sauda to indulge in this sort of propaganda.

He was referring to the incident involving followers of the Damdami Taksal (Bhindranwala) and other Sikh organizations, who 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 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. Giani Joginder Singh Vedanti has taken serious note of the incident, but appealed to the protesters to exercise restraint.
