Why get upset over this;let there be a thousand replicas of the Golden temple–it will only bring more people back to Sikhi.

– Posted by Mahinder Singh

Agree with Mahinder, no dilution of rigious ferver by constructing a replica; in fact, if replica is the only one largely encouraged all over the world so much better for a religion.

In Hinduism there a simply too many different types of temple architectures.( Iam a Hindu)

I agree you with you & disagree with Amandeep. This is not a dead issue & Reuters as done well to report it. I am based in London & never knew about this story. On a personal level the real shrine should never copied & cannot be as it is sacred & has the Gurus blessing. I believe there are other forces at play here that want to divide the Sikh community.

Thanks.

Part of the problem is making statements by the Sikh leaders in the absence of credible proof. This just is irresponsible. All parties or persons should just shut up and say “NO comments until proper comparison is made”.

As for the SGPC, I don’t know the details of how it might determine whether this building is a copy or not. There have been media reports in India that the SGPC will hold a meeting of Sikh leaders and religious organisations on June 20 to decide the issue. Let’s see what they say.

Just to rephrase my question how does SGPC know it is a replica or not–any proper report based on comarison of original Golden Temple and the new temple by archiects and engineers? I just know about Golden Temple where I have been 20 times.
