Amritsar: SGPC U turn on Dera chief Ram Rahim apology. A few years ago, Dera Sacha Sauda chief Ram Rahim hurt Sikh sentiments with his shameful act of copying the attire of Guru Gobind Singh Ji , after which the tension between the Sikhs and the dera followers increased greatly.There was a bloody confrontation at several places between both the sides. At last, Ram Rahim, appeared before Akal Takht Sahib and apologised in written for his act and Akal Takht Sahib accepted his apology.In the above case, Jathedar Avtar Singh Makkar the then president of SGPC, passed an applause resolution in relation with the decision taken by Akal Takht on the written apology of Ram Rahim in General House at Teja Singh Samundari Hall on September 29, 2015. This means that the decision taken by Akal Takht was welcomed. Now when Ram Rahim has been given a 20-year sentence for raping the sadhvis of his own dera, the SGPC is trying to take an action against him under section 295-A.Talking to the reporters, SGPC President Prof. Badungar said that the house was not recognised in September 2015, so a House resolution can not be accepted.

Earlier, the President of the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee Kirpal Singh Badungar said that the resolution will be considered in the Executive Committee and later it will be sent to the General House as the President does not have the right to cancel any resolution, the General House may decide on this. On the matter of cancellation of the resolution, the SGPC took the U-turn on the matter.At the same time, on the statement given by the Damdami Taksal chief, to withdraw the Shiromani Award given to senior journalist and famous writer Kuldeep Nayyar, Prof. Badungar said that they would write to Akal Takht in this regard and whatever Akal Takht decides, will be implemented.
