Free Akal Takht - Looking Back - Forging On

We were once free. Our sovereign institutions were answerable only to the Guru and the Divine. Today the Akal Takht, built by Guru Harigobind Sahib, is under the laws of the Indian state. We are the world's only major faith without our own sovereign institution, the only faith whose central authority is legislated by an outside government. Imagine having our own sovereign institution, open and responsible. Imagine being proud of how the Panth is run? Imagine having a say in how your faith is governed? Imagine a Free Akal Takht.
