Vande Mataram not to be sung by Sikhs

After the objections raised by a section of the Muslim community, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee has asked Sikhs not to sing the national song Vande Mataram on its centenary on Thursday.

SGPC President (Makkar) did a 360 and now is in tune with the Govt. & BJP opposition on singing of Vande Mataram... Complete Story...

We have a really strong leadership. Strong in doing Flip Flopps.... However, SAD (Shiromani Akali Dal) still stand the ground of not letting the Govt. or opposition BJP impose singing of Vande Mataram on Sikhs...

  • I guess, people will do what people want to do, especially when it comes to faith. It doesn't matter what any government or entity says or orders them to do. This compulsary singing means nothing when it comes to one's patriotism for a country.

  • Sounds a lot like the flip-flops in this country.

    I agree with Sikhsrus in that people will hold their beliefs regardless what governing bodies say. People are not that gullible...I hope.
