SC order in favour of Mangu Mutt: SGPC


SC order in favour of Mangu Mutt: SGPC

Amritsar, October 7

On the row over the authenticity and significance of Sikh religious structures in Jagannath Puri, the SGPC today claimed that the Supreme Court had given directions to the Odisha Government against tampering with them.

Reports surfaced that the existence of Mangu Mutt and Bauli Mutt, which had direct association with Guru Nanak Dev, was in a jeopardy as the state government was mulling a heritage corridor within 75 m of ‘Meghanad Prachir’ of the Jagannath Temple. SGPC chief secretary Roop Singh said a group of local Sikhs in Orissa had challenged the demolition of these sites. “It is pity that Odisha misquoted a member of joint delegation of the SGPC and DSGMC to claim that these structures didn’t have religious significance. One of the petitioners Ajmer Singh Randhawa had procured proof to testify that these structures had direct ties with Guru Nanak following which the SC directed the government not to touch them,” he said. — TNS
