- Giani Gurbachan Singh accepts 1945 Sikh Rehat Maryada


Giani Lal Singh of went to Giani Gurbachan Singh in 1945 to ascertain as to whether he would be abiding by the decree of Akal Takhat Sahib on Raagmala prior to the Rehat Maryada being finalised. Giani Lal Singh returned after a week’s stay at Bhinder Kalan, with a written message that Jatha Bhindran bows before the decree of Akal Takhat Sahib. The veracity of the said message can be gauged from the fact that as long as Giani Gurbachan Singh lived the issue was never again raked up by him or by Shaheed Jarnail Singh Ji while he was at Akal Takht Sahib.
