Amritsar: The act of installing a statue of Sri Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru (master), in Ambuja Mall at Patna Sahib is against Sikh principles. Idol worshiping has no place in Sikh religion and the Sikh psyche has been hurt by placing an idol of the tenth Sikh Guru. This was expressed by Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) President Harjinder Singh Dhami in a statement issued here today.

Condemning the installation of the Guru’s statue at Patna Sahib, he said that an inquiry report will be taken in this matter. He said that no one has the right to hurt the religious sentiments of the Sikh community while taking action against Sikh principles. This action is to amalgamate Sikh principles and traditions.

The SGPC President said that the management committee of Takht Sri Harmandar Ji Patna Sahib should conduct a thorough investigation and send a report to the SGPC so that a response is sought from those who did such an act.
