In a post on social media, Akal Takht expressed solidarity with cricketer Arshdeep Singh, who was being made scapegoat for India’s defeat against Pakistan in Dubai after dropping a catch.
In an unidentified user event, a reference to Khalistan was added to the player’s Wikipedia page.
Giani Harpreet Singh, officiating Jathedar of Akal Takht, spoke directly with Arshdeep regarding the development and advised him not to focus on inflammatory content.
It’s part of the game whether you win or lose. Some anti-social elements started trolling Arshdeep as soon as he missed a catch, which is concerning. Such elements should be curbed by the Centre,” he said.
Sikhs have made a major contribution to the country, according to SGPC chief Harjinder Singh Dhami.
