In 2001, Baba Santa Singh, the Jathedar of Budha Dal, along with 20 chiefs of Nihang sects, refused to accept the ban on consumption of bhang by the apex Sikh clergy.[1]

Baba Santa Singh rebuilt the Akal Takht after Operation Blue Star. It was torn down two years later under the orders of Baba Takhur Singh, the leader of the Damdami Taksal.
