IOSS President writes to Jathedar, Akal Takht Sahib on Video Recording of proceedings of 'Decision-Making' meetings on Panthic Matters
Respected Jathedar Sahib,
This is in reference to the news published in the Press on February 5, 2014 regarding the discussion to be held on the Nanakshahi Calendar issue by the Sikh Clergy at Akal Takht on February 6, 2014.
The Institute has played a significant role in the creation of the Nanakshahi Calendar which was passed and implemented by the SGPC in the year 2003. Since it is a fact that the Panth stands divided on this issue, we hereby request you to hold wider consultations with Panthic organisations before arriving at any final decision.
We also request you that in the interest of 'Panthic Unity', the proceedings of all the 'Decision-Making' meetings on Panthic matters be kindly Video Recorded and Uploaded on SGPC's Website. This would enable every Sikh to comprehend the merits of the decision(s) ultimately arrived at.
Hoping for an ardent consideration.
