220 Guru Granth Sahib 'saroops' to be airlifted to Australia

The SGPC president, Harjinder Singh Dhami, confirmed this and indicated that the "saroops" will be despatched as soon as the Australian devotees booked a charter flight.

The Guru Granth Sahib

The "saroops," a physical copy of Guru Granth Sahib, the primary holy religious text of Sikhism, can only be transported overseas under the Sikh maryada (code of conduct). The SGPC (The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee) has granted the request for 220 "saroops" made by the "sangat" of Guru Nanak Darbar, Victoria in Australia, in accordance with the directives of the Akal Takht in this regard.

For the purpose of sending "saroops" to Australia, devotees have been asked to book a chartered aeroplane.
