Gurudwara Rakabganj was constructed after demolishing the mosque: Manjinder Singh Sirsa

New Delhi . Controversy has started over the statement of former president of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) and BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa regarding the construction of Gurdwara Rakabganj . Citing the book published by Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), he had said in a program recently that Sikh warrior Baba Baghel Singh had constructed Gurdwara Rakabganj Sahib by demolishing the mosque in 1783. His statement has been opposed by Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD Badal) state president Paramjit Singh Sarna and other Sikh leaders. Accusing Sirsa of misrepresenting Sikh history, he has demanded action from the Jathedar of Shri Akal Takht. DSGMC President Harmeet Singh Kalka, supporting Sirsa's statement, has demanded action against Sarna from Sri Akal Takht.
