Amritsar: Akal Takht on Thursday termed the recent incident of tossing of turban (head gear) of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee chief as "unfortunate".
In a statement here, head of the highest Sikh temporal seat Gurbachan Singh said removal of turban of Parmjit Singh Sarna in public was against Sikh tenets.
"It was unfortunate that some people in order to settle their personal scores with Sarna had removed his turban in full public view which was highly repulsive act," he said. Sarna's turban was removed by a youth few days back.
The person, who indulged in a scuffle with Sarna, had also once slapped Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar at a public function.
