Tarn Taran – Panjab – India, 31 March 2019. Putting aside the Sikh sentiments, the Kaar Sewa seminary headed by Baba Jagtar Singh has started demolishing the more than two centuries old main entrance gate of Gurdwara Sri Darbar Sahib, Tarn Taran.

To evade the protest by Sikh masses, the demolition was started during the intervening night of March 30 and 31.

Ranbir Singh, a local Sikh, told Sikh24 that his heart got twitched when he saw the top of this historic Darshani Deodi demolished during the morning hours today. “The Darshani Deodi was standing intact when I had come to pay obeisance here last evening,” he added.

It may be recalled here that an attempt to demolish this Darshani Deodi (Entrance gate) of Sri Darbar Sahib, Tarn Taran under pretext of ‘Kaar Sewa’ was earlier failed by the Sikh devotees on September 14 last year.

Baba Jagtar Singh and other SGPC officials had to face a sharp protest by the Sikh devotees when they were about to begin work for demolishing the two centuries old entrance gate built during the kingdom of Kanwar Naunihal Singh.

At that time, the SGPC and Kaar Sewa authorities had found it better to stop the demolition of this ‘Darhsani Deodi’ for the time being.
