Satguru Jagjit Singh, chief of the Namdhari sect, passed away at a private hospital here on Thursday evening. He was 92.
Singh had been in the ICU of Satguru Patap Apollo Hospital for the last three weeks, as he was suffering from multiple health problems.
His body is being taken to Bhaini Sahib in this district, main head quarter of the Namdhari sect, where he will be cremated on Friday, said Surinder Singh Namdhari, spokesman of the sect.
Meanwhile, Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh has expressed profound grief over the demise of Satguru Jagjit Singh. In a condolence message to the bereaved family and the Namdhari Durbar, Amarinder said: "Satguru Jagjit Singh demise is a great loss to the humanity. He was the guiding force not for the Namdhari durbar only, but the whole of mankind."
"The Congress joins the family and the Namdhari Durbar in this hour of grief. The Satguru will however continue to guide the lives of millions and millions of people through his teachings and the ideals he set and strengthened," he added.
