When Damdama Sahib was made as 5th Takht. then a community philosopher Kapur questioned arguing that the move will demands for more and more Takhts.
Now, at this time a new SixthTakht will be made or not such discussion is going on. Along with that some questions being raised about it’s independence.
As Gurudwara are across the border may not be controlled by community it is fear. Obviously it has Political angle of both Pakistan and Inndia to think such.
