Taking cognisance of the dance classes being held on the premises of a gurdwara in the US, Akal Takht has issued directions to stop them with immediate effect.
Complaints were received that in Gurdwara Singh Sabha in Fresno, California, classes were being conducted to teach bhangra and gidda on Bollywood numbers by a music academy, which is violation of Sikh principles.
Akal Takht Jathedar’s personal assistant Jaspal Singh said numerous complaints were received in this regard upon which Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh has directed to stop it. “Not only these classes have been directed to discontinue, but also the Jathedar has asked for clarification within 15 days. We have sent letter to the gurdwara management,” he said.
Meanwhile, Shaheed General Sham Singh Gurmat Jagriti Mission Academy, Attari, president Gursewak Singh has submitted a memorandum to the Akal Takht secretariat regarding these dance classes. He said youngsters were being taught bhangra and gidda on film songs.
