Fatehgarh Sahib: To pay glowing tributes to Mata Gujri and younger sons (Sahibzade’s) of Tenth Sikh Guru- Guru Gobind Singh, the Shriomani Akali Dal (Amritsar) held a conference in which representatives of Dal Khalsa also participated. The speakers eulogized the supreme sacrifices of Sahibzade Fateh Singh and Zorawar Singh to uphold the truth, righteousness and principles of religion.
Joining the Indian sub-continentwise demand of withdrawal of CAA and NRC, the speakers fired salvo against Narendra Modi Govt for enacting divisive and dangerous law. They said the present day Govt was dragging the situation leading to another Emergency. The organizers of today’s conference stood rock behind the students of Jamia, AMU and other universities who had taken to streets to protest against the fascist policies of the Modi-Shah Govt. They praised girls and boys students who have borne the brunt of the state repression.
SAD (Amritsar) president Simranjit Singh Mann said the spirit of martyrdom exemplified by great Sikh Gurus and Sahibzade’s serves as a beacon light for Sikhs to stand up to tyranny and subjugation of successive governments over the last 550 years of Sikh history.
Taking the Indian Govt to task for not releasing the Sikh prisoners, Mann said the Modi/Shah duo were playing double game with Sikhs. He targeted the chief minister Captain Amrinder Singh for misleading the people of Punjab by failing to prosecute Sukhbir-Saini-Sauda Sadh.
Dal khalsa chief Harpal Singh Cheema blamed Govt for deceiving the Sikhs. On one hand, they issued notification for the release of eight Sikh prisoners, on the other, the Govt gave ample time to the likes of Manjinder Singh Bitta to approach the SC to obstruct the path of release.
Dal Khalsa spokesman Kanwar Pal Singh said that the tenth Guru sacrificed his sons for the sake of the Panth but today’s leaders were sacrificing Panthic interests for the sake of their sons.
Referring to Amit Shah calling the students of various universities protesting the divisive CAA and NRC, he said the language of Home Minister threatening the protesters was that of ‘goonda’. It doesn’t behove well for the office of the HM of the country.
Kanwar Pal Singh also slammed the statement of Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat in which he said students being led to violence while protesting against the new law. He said the statement was clearly political in nature. He said the Narendra Modi Govt has allowed the army chief to meddle in civil and political affairs, which was in a bad taste.
