[An English brief on resolutions adopted by the Sarbat Khalsa]

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh!

Sarbat Khalsa’s purpose is to strengthen all Sikh institutions and traditions. We acknowledge the process had several limitations. We will work towards fully diverse and inclusive principles, participation for the next Sarbat Khalsa.

Infused with the fragrance of Gurbani, the mystical body of Sarbat Khalsa met today with unconditional allegiance to the Guru Granth Sahib – an infinite source for wisdom for all.

In spirit of consensus-based decision making capturing the political will of the Sikh nation, Sarbat khalsa invokes the leadership of Guru Granth Sahib and Guru Khalsa Panth. And resolves to the following resolutions:

1. It absolves the four current Jathedars from their duties – Giani Gurbachan Singh, Giani Mal Singh, Giani Gurmukh Singh, and Giani Iqbal Singh and appoints the following interim Jathedars until Vaisakhi 2016 as follows: Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara at Sri Akal Takht Sahib; Bhai Amrik Singh Ajnala at Sri Keshgarh Sahib; and Bhai Baljit Singh Daduwal at Sri Dam Dama Sahib.

2. Reaffirms Akal Takht Sahib is Guru-gifted, sovereign Sikh institution which must become fully independent again. A draft committee is to be constituted comprising of Sikhs both from the homeland and the Disapora by 30 November 2015 to report on Akal Takht Sahib’s system which includes Sarbat Khalsa and Jathedars’ governance and process. Plan is to be adopted by Vaisakhi 2016 when the next Sarbat Khalsa is to be held.

3. Declares Kanwarpal Singh Gill and Kuldip Singh Brar ‘tankhaiya’, chastised for anti-Sikh Genocidal campaigns and summons them at Akal Takht Sahib to present themselves by 30 November 2015.

4. Finds Parkash Singh Badal, Sukhbir Singh Badal and Avtar Singh Makkar guilty of undermining and misusing the Sikh institutions of Panj Pyare and Akal Takht Sahib; nullifies Parkash Singh Badal’s ‘Faqqar-e-Qaum’ and ‘Panth Rattan’ and Avtar Singh Makkar’s ‘Shiromani Sevak’ awards.

5. Sarbat Khalsa creates World Sikh Parliament to represent global Sikhs under the aegis of Akal Takht Sahib. A draft committee is to be constituted comprising of Sikhs both from the homeland and the Diaspora by 30 November 2015 to report on its structure and governance. Plan to be adopted by Vaisakhi 2016.

6. Calls on Sikhs to safeguard sanctity of Guru Granth Sahib and aptly deliver justice in accordance with the Khalsa traditions to those disrespecting the eternal Guru.

7. Sarbat Khalsa recognises the Sikh political prisoners as the Sikh nation’s assets and holds the State responsible for the resultant consequences due to Jathedar Surat Singh’s struggles, and demands all political prisoners of any movement in India such as Sikhs, Naxalites, Kashmiris, Nagas and others to be released unconditionally now.

8. Sarbat Khalsa revives the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee’s democratic representative system to manage the internal Sikh affairs which have been suspended by the State over the years.

9. Orders all Sikhs to fully refrain from all internal, divisive, doctrinal debate until the sovereignty of the Akal Takht Sahib is restored.

10. Recognises the Sikh nation must establish a unifying, independent Sikh calendar.

11. Aspires for vatican-like status for Harimandir Sahib complex to ensure every Sikh’s birthright to visit and deliberate at the Akaal Takht Sahib.

12. Reaffirms the resolutions adopted by the Sarbat Khalsa held on 26 January 1986.

13. Embraces the disenfranchised fellow human beings to be treated with dignity and respect; appeals to stop the construction of caste-based Gurdwaras and cremation grounds.

All Sikhs and Sikh institutions are to implement the aforesaid thirteen resolutions in both letter and spirit.

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh!

The first matta (resolution) is that three of the Five Takht Jathedars are to be removed from their positions and replaced by interim Jathedars until Vaisakhi 2016:

Akaal Takht Sahib: Gurbachan Singh to be remplaced by Jagtar Singh Hawara – (Dhian Singh Mand)
Kesgarh Sahib: Giani Mal Singh to be replaced by Amrik Singh Ajnala
Damdama Sahib: Giani Gurmukh Singh to be replaced by Baljit Singh Daduwal
