By Ravinder Singh Robin

Amritsar May 19, : The rift between Sikhs and the Dera Sach Sauda sect has become more widened, as both the groups have hardened their opposition against each other.

The Sikh leaders have said that if the State Government fails to arrest Baba Gurmeet Ram Raheem, chief of the Sach Sauda cult, and did not impose ban on the activities of the sect, the agitation and the tension could increase.

A senior Sikh priest of Akal Takht Giani Joginder Singh Vedanti ruled out any discussion with the Dera Sacha sect till the government arrests the sect's leader and take any punitive action against the sect for blasphemous act of imitating Guru Gobind Singh, tenth Sikh Guru.

Giani Iqbal Singh, another high priest of the Sikh community, has blamed Raheem for the outbreak of violence.

He cautioned that in absence of actions taken against the sect leader, the situation could further worsen, and could even spread overseas.The Sikh high priests had earlier given an ultimatum till May 20 to the State government to put a ban on the deras of the sect.

Meanwhile, the Akal Takht today decided to set up a panel of Sikh intellectuals for initiating intensive 'dharam parchar' movement.
