The outrageous entertainment of a Sikhs in a Sarbat Khalsa, called by a radicals nearby Amritsar, valid over any doubt a flourishing displeasure among a people with a policies and functioning of SAD that is famous to control a Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC). In a truly shocking development, a radicals reiterated a direct for a apart Sikh republic – (Khalistan) during a Sarbat Khalsa.
