Representatives of British Columbia and California Gurdwaras and Sikh Organizations Call for Boycott of Badal Dal & Co.

    STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA/ VANCOUVER, CANADA –  Amid a lot of emotion, and zeal, various Gurdwaras and organizations in Northern California and British Columbia gathered at seperate events and pledged that they would no longer recognize the current ‘Jathedars’ of the Takhts, and would actively participate in the upcoming ‘Sarbat Khalsa’ and also openly called for a boycott of Akali Dal Badal and all its representatives. One of the resolutions at the Stockton meeting states that Sikhs would not have any ਰੋਟੀ ਬੇਟੀ ਦੀ ਸਾਂਝ with Akali Dal Badal and their supporters.

    Time will tell how many of these Gurdwaras and organizations stand by their pledges.  In the past many such pledges have been announced, but as their views ‘softened’ over time, they eventually backtracked from such promises.
