Post Sikh Community Was Part Of Hinduism: Rashpal Singh

Sikhs are not a separate community as it was a part of Hinduism, president of SAD (Master Tara Singh) Rashpal Singh claimed here today.

Addressing a press conference here, Rashpal Singh, said, "It would be wrong to say that Sikh community was not part of Hindu religion; since our ancestors were basically Hindu and after being inspired from Sikh religion they adopted Sikh religion with letter and spirit."

Negating the stand of Akal Takht, the highest temporal seat of Sikhs, which had a number of times described the Sikhs as a separate community, he claimed that the number of times the Jathedar of Akal Takht took wrong decisions it cost heavy to the community.

"If we peep into our past, out forefathers were Hindu and during freedom struggle of Indian nation, each Hindu family had preferred to choose their one son to adopt Sikh religion thus it was the main reason today we can find Sikhs in huge number all over the world."

Decrying the stand of SGPC to take away the right of non-Sikhs to vote in committee elections, he alleged that it was a communal thought.

Singh said non-Sikhs should be extended full right to cast their vote in SGPC election so that maximum people from other communities could join the Sikh religion.

Commenting on Nanakshahi calendar (separate Sikh calendar) Singh alleged it was an attempt to keep Hindu people away.

"Our ten Sikh masters, even the founder of Sikhism and first Sikh master Guru Nanak Dev also talked about the Bikrami calendar in his discourses and none of the Guru hinted about the Nanakshahi calendar," he said.
