“The Khalsa Panth is not just a religious body but also a sovereign political entity. Through the centuries, Sikhs have had a unique place among the people of world, developing into a distinct nation in their own right”, reads the resolution adopted at a conference organized by youth body to mark the 316th anniversary of Khalsa Sajna Divas.

While advising the cadres, activists and sympathizers of the organization to concentrate on their character building, president of the Dal Khalsa H S Dhami said that our activists should be politically mature and they should have a deep insight contemporary global developments to counter opportunist pro-Indian parties and politicians. Only a disciplined team of honest, truthful and pious souls can face challenges of the times.

Referring to the upcoming controversial film “Nanak Shah Fakir”, he said that their group has a clear and unambiguous policy and we openly challenge those who are working on taking the entire community down through their blasphemous acts.

The lack of action oriented programmes by Sikh religious bodies like SGPC and DSGMC wa most unfortunate.

Wnewshile talking with media party leader Kanwar Pal Singh said since the last three weeks they have been urging, appealing and requesting the Jathedar Akal Takhat, SGPC, Censor Board, the Union as well as state governments to see the reason and ban the movie Nanak Shah Fakir but all have failed us. Since all are unrelenting to respect the Sikh sensitivities, we have been left with no choice but to fight against this new onslaughts.
