Hukumnama Against the Nirankaris

On 6th October 1978, a Hukumnama bearing the seal of the Akal Takht was issued calling upon Sikhs all over the world to boycott the Nirankaris. Sikhs were not to allow the sect to flourish within society. A committee comprising of the following notable figures prepared the Hukamnama: Giani Gurdit Singh, Giani Lal Singh, Giani Partap Singh, Giani Sadhu Singh,Sardar Kapur Singh,Sardar Parkash Singh and Sardar Satbir Singh.

Through this Hukamnama, all Sikhs were instructed to stop "roti beti di sanjh", meaning that food and marital relations with the Nirankaris must cease.
