AMRITSAR: Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib Giani Raghbir Singh has strongly condemned the incident of the police registering a case against an Amritdhari Sikh in Italy for possessing a 'sharp weapon' due to the presence of Sri Sahib.

In a written statement issued by Sri Akal Takht Sahib Secretariat, Giani Raghbir Singh said that Siri Sahib is one of the five kakaars of Amritdhari Sikhs and a police case has been filed against Gurbachan Singh, an Amritdhari Sikh who went to Italy three months ago for wearing Siri Sahib described it as direct attack on religious freedom of Sikhs.

He said that today Sikhs live in every corner of the world and according to the philosophy of universality given by Guru Sahib, they have established their identity in every field due to their hard work, honesty and dignity. The Italian government should give the Sikhs the right to live with religious freedom, understanding the global relevance of the Sikh religion.
Jathedar also ordered the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee to contact the Italian Embassy in India to inform them of the importance of Siri Sahib for Amritdhari Sikhs.
