Underlining that Sikh martial art Gatka was the 'war sport' of the Sikhs, the five Sikh high priests, after an Akal Takht meeting on Friday, said that only Gursikhs must be included in the teams of Gatka competitions, virtually declaring that Gatka was a sport exclusively for the Sikhs.
"Gatka is a respectable work and only Sikh institutions and Sikhs are authorised to engage in it. During Gatka competitions, only Gursikhs must be included in the teams to ensure the unique identity of Sikhs," Akal Takht chief Giani Gurbachan Singh read out the directive signed by the Sikh clergy.
