Akal Takht bans Guru Granth Sahib in homes with bars

Besides bars, the Sikh families using substances that are against the basic tenets of the religion have also been cautioned against keeping the holy book in their homes.                                      

Acting on suggestions and complaints of some faithful, Akal Takht - the highest temporal body of Sikhs - ruled on Tuesday that Guru Granth Sahib can't co-exist in houses that have bars or with things proscribed by the religion, such as tobacco, intoxicants and halal meat. The decision was taken at a meeting of the top Sikh clergy at the Akal Takht secretariat in Amritsar.

Akal Takht jathedar (chief) Giani Gurbachan Singh said keeping the Granth Sahib in houses of Sikhs who had made liquor bars in their drawing rooms was tantamount to disrespect for the holy book, which is considered a living embodiment of Sikh gurus.

Besides bars, the Sikh families using substances that are against the basic tenets of the religion have also been cautioned against keeping the holy book in their homes.

"Sikh families who consume halal meat, smoke hookah, charas (hashish) and tobacco are also banned from having the parkash of Sri Guru Granth Sahib in their homes. We have not only given directives but also advised Sikhs to abstain from such practices else religious action would be taken against them on receiving any such complaint or violation," said Singh.

Sikh community members burn an effigy of Asaram Bapu on Sunday.

                                                                     Close to 150 members of Sikh community on Sunday staged a strong protest at Sant Asaram
 square against spiritual guru's controversial remarks against Gurunanak Dev.

After facing charges of sexual assault against a minor girl at Jodhpur based ashram, the
 controversial religious mentor reportedly had said that he was ready to go to Tihar jail, as
'Gurunanak Devji also went to jail twice.'

Various organisations representing Sikh community have strongly reacted to these
 remarks and Sunday's protest was part of the reaction.

The enraged Sikh protesters beat up Asaram's picture with shoes and also burnt his effigy
 to vent their anguish. The demonstrators also blackened Asaram's picture displayed at the
square, while demanding apologies from the self-proclaimed godman.

The agitated protesters also raised slogans against Asaram Bapu. 

One of the protesters, Ranvir Bagga, told that the Sikh community is demanding 
unconditional apology from Asaram Bapu for his remarks. 

The community has demanded from the mayor Krishna Murari Moghe that name of the
 Asaram Bapu square should be changed and should re-christened behind any 
martyr, Bagga said adding that the community would continue to protest against
 the religious guru unless he tenders an unconditional apology for his remarks.

Asaram's comparison with Guru Nanak angers Sikhs, case filed

Sikhs took to the streets here on Wednesday to vent their ire over the remark made by 's media adviser Neelam Dubey likening him to Gurunanak Dev, while defending the controversial godman in the sexual assault case.

"The foul mouthed Neelam Dubey, spokesperson of self proclaimed Godman, Asaram Bapu, ranting bad words about our religious leader, Gurunanak Dev and about other religious leaders and saints like Kabir Das, Sai Baba goes to show that she does not believe in humanity. And such a person is spokesperson of the Godman," said Harmeet Singh Kalka, Joint Secretary of  Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee, who led the protests.

"We came here to protest after she used those words on media platforms and has now locked her home and run away," he added.
The Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has filed a case against Neelam Dubey for comparing Asaram Bapu to Guru Nanak Dev.
According to the complaint, she allegedly made objectionable remarks against Gautam Buddha, Guru Nanak and other religious leaders while reacting to the rape allegations made by a minor girl against Asaram Bapu.
A similar complaint has also been filed against the controversial godman's media advisor in Punjab by the Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC).


In view of the complaint filed by the Sikh religious bodies, Delhi Police have also obtained the video footage of the show. 

DCP (New Delhi) SBS Tyagi said that neither the Asaram trust or the godman has apologised or withdrawn their comments. 

There's no comparison between Asaram bapu and Guru Nanak ji
