Ontario Gurdwaras reaffirm Akal Takht Hukamnama forbidding Anand Karaj in Banquets and Hotels

Toronto, Ontario, Sept 24, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

The Ontario Gurdwaras Committee (OGC) and Ontario Sikhs and Gurudwara Council (OSGC) are deeply disturbed by recent reports of Anand Karaj ceremonies taking place in Banquet Facilities, Golf Courses and Hotel Resorts.

Issuing a statement in this regard, Amarjit Singh Mann, Spokesperson of Ontario Gurdwaras Committee and Kultar Singh Gill, Chairperson of Ontario Sikhs and Gurdwara Council, said the Ontario Sikhs strongly reaffirm the Hukumnama issued by Akal Takhat Sahib on March 16, 1998, and signed by all five Punj Pyare, that explicitly prohibits Anand Karaj Ceremonies from taking place in Banquet Facilities, Golf Courses and Hotel Resorts. The Hukamnama, with translation, is attached as Appendices.

When in these situations, Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj is not given proper dignity and respect in these facilities where the consumption of alcohol and cigarettes is a common practice. This Beadbi (disrespect) of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is not tolerable for any Sikh of the Guru.

We appeal to Gurdwaras in Canada to immediately stop allowing Saroops of Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji to be taken for Anand Karaj Ceremonies in Banquet Facilities, Golf Courses and Hotel Resorts and we ask the Sangat to also remain vigilant when such Beadbi occurs. We ask the Sangat to report such incidents to their local Gurdwara Committee, and to the OGC and OSGC so that appropriate action can be taken.

This AI tech may spot unseen signs of heart failure

New York, Oct 19, 2021- US researchers have developed an electrocardiogram-reading algorithm that can detect subtle signs of heart failure. Heart failure, or congestive heart failure, occurs when the heart pumps less blood than the body normally needs. For years, doctors have relied heavily on an imaging technique called an echocardiogram to assess whether a patient may be experiencing heart...
