Five high priests of Sikhs have taken back the decision on Friday to pardon Dera Sacha Sauda Head Gurmeet Ram Rahim.
Meanwhile, Punjab deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal has directed the police to withdraw all cases against protesters.
The decision was taken in a sudden meeting held at Akal Takht on Friday afternoon and the reason for taking back the decision was due to strong opposition of Sikhs. “The Gurmta was not accepted by the Guru-Panth. Considering the sentiments of Sikhs, we quash the Decision taken to pardon dera head. All five high priests are dedicated for the dignity of Khalsa panther,” said Gaini Gurbachan Singh, high priest of Akal Takht.
