Looking at the old newspaper cuttings Brahma Kumaris Research have compiled, there is a reference which appears to be related to this.
Given the dates, I suspect it refers to the Shiromani Akali Dal. The Akali Sikhs were aligned with the Indian Independence movement which Lekhraj Kirpalani opposed and saw as traitors. As a political party, not bandits, they sought to protect the political rights of the Sikhs.
Can anyone tell me if this is the same even and if Jagdish Chander has just exaggerated it again (as usual)?
Threat to Founder of Om Mandli
Visit of Akali Sikh
Karachi, September 7
The affairs of Om Mandli have taken a grave turn. Picketing is not the only form of agitation against the movement. Om Radhe, the chief disciple of Dada Lekhraj, the founder of Om Mandli, has reported to the police that an Akali Sikh visited Om Nivas yesterday and after he was shown around and was leaving, the Akali Sikh, according to her, held out threats that in case the movement was not stopped and Dada Lekhraj did not suspend his activities, the would be doing so at the risk of his own life. The police have made special arrangements at Om Nivas.
