Amritsar, March 20. In a significant move, the Sikh high priests today called an emergency meeting of all religious, social and political organisations on March 23 to evolve a consensus on how to save former Chief Minister Beant Singh’s assassin Balwant Singh Rajoana from gallows.
Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh announced the decision after a meeting of the Sikh clergy at the Akal Takht Secretariat here today.
Addressing mediapersons, the Jathedar said, “We urge all religious, social, and political organisations, besides Taksals and sects, to send in their suggestions to us in writing through their representatives to the Akal Takht before 11 am on March 23.
Subsequently, the Sikh high priests will hold a meeting with the representatives of these outfits at Teja Singh Samundari Hall and announce the decision of the Sikh community after deliberating on the suggestions received from various quarters.” He said these organisations could also seek opinion of legal experts at their own level and suggest the legal recourse that may be adopted the Sri Akal Takht.
