Self-styled preacher and head of ‘Waris Punjab De’ Amritpal Singh tied the knot with UK-based NRI Kirandeep Kaur in a low-key affair at his ancestral village of Jallupur Khera in Amritsar district on Friday. Amritpal said that the marriage was a message for reverse migration and that they wanted Punjabis to return to Punjab and settle there. He also said that the marriage functions should be simple and sober and that people should avoid over spending on weddings. Amritpal has been quite active in Punjab and his supporters have been involved in dismantling several things in gurdwara on the pretext that the shrines were providing several facilities to the devotees against the ‘maryada’ (code of conduct) of Sikh religion. Earlier his supporters had burnt chairs and sofas in Model Town Gurdwara in Jalandhar saying that devotees should pay obeisance sitting on the ground.
