Gurbani row: Akal Takht receives apology from Sidhu
Cricketer-turned-politician and former BJP MP Navjot Singh Sidhu on Monday tendered a written apology to Akal Takht, the top Sikh temporal seat, over the Gurbani row, saying his religion was the most sacred to him.
Confirming the receipt of the apology, Akal Takht’s head Gurbachan Singh said, “We have the receipt of apology sent by Sidhu through one of his supporters.”
Sidhu in his apology said, “If he had committed any blasphemously act knowingly or unknowingly hurting the sentiments of anyone, he felt apology with folded hands not even one time, but even repeatedly.” Singh said, “The fate of his written apology is to be decided in the next meeting of Sikh High priests which is yet to be fixed”. Few days ago Sidhu’s cavalcade was attacked by a mob in Jammu during an election drive while he was campaigning in favour of Gandhi Nagar Assembly candidate Kavinder Gupta at Bhor camp area. Window panes of vehicle were broken while Sidhu escaped unhurt.
