Amritsar, Punjab (April 29, 2013): Justifying the martyr’s memorial build in Darbar Sahib Complex after the name of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale and other martyrs of 1984 army assault code named Operation Blue Star, the Dal Khalsa said Baba Harnam Singh implemented the resolution of the SGPC adopted on May 3, 2012. The organization slammed the SGPC and the SAD for reacting adversely on the issue now.
In a statement party head Harcharanjit Singh Dhami rubbishes the claims of SGPC head Avtar Singh Makhar that Damdami Taksal head Baba Harnam Singh has kept the SGPC into a dark about naming the memorial after Sant Bhindrawale.
Quoting from the resolution passed at meet of SGPC executive committee on 3rd May 2012, he said the resolution No 1474 itself states that this meeting of executive under the leadership of Pardhan Sahib authorizes Damdami Taksal head Baba Harnam Singh to raise the memorial near Akal Takht in memory of Sant Jarnail Singh and other martyrs who embraced martyrdom during army attack in 1984.
(The copy of the resolution is reproduced below).
Dhami wondered as to why the SGPC and the SAD leadership was making hue and cry out of it when the executive committee itself has mentioned the name of Sant Bhindrawale in the resolution itself.
He asked the SGPC head Jathedar Avtar Singh to desist from making any mischief as some employees of the SGPC unsuccessfully attempted to uproot the History Board on the night of inauguration of the memorial. He said any such mischief by SGPC in future would not be tolerated.
He regretted that the SGPC was undoing the great task it had done in felicitating the Taksal to construct the memorial. He asked the SGPC to stop airing its differences of opinion and perception over the matter in public.
