Chandigarh (September 10, 2011): AISSF and SFJ demanded that SAD (Badal), the ruling party in Punjab should call a “Special Session of Punjab Vidhan Sabha” to pass a resolution demanding Central Government to commute Professor Devenderpal Singh Bhullar’s death sentence respecting the sentiments and demand of Sikhs.
Recently, Tamil Nadu assembly has passed a resolution moved by Chief Minister Ms. Jayalalithaa urging the President of India to commute the death sentence of Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan, who have been convicted for assassination of Rajiv Gandhi in view of the sentiments of Tamil people. J & K CM Omar Abdullah has also announced to support the resolution in J&K Assembly seeking the commutation of Afzal Guru’s death sentence.
According to Karnail Singh Peermohammad, President AISSF, it is unfortunate that despite of holding majority, CM Badal has failed to bring resolution in Punjab Vidhan Sabha to save Professor Bhullar from gallows. If Afzal Guru and Murugan have the support of their state assemblies in commuting their death sentence, why not Professor Bhullar, asked Peermohammad. It shows that every other state in India respects the sentiments and wishes of its constituents and acts accordingly except SAD (Badal) headed Punjab Government, added Peermohammad.
SAD (Badal) has always won the elections in Punjab on the issue of seeking justice for Sikhs, however, SAD (Badal) has betrayed its constituents every time by going against its own election manifesto, added Peermohammad.
Instead of passing a resolution on the issue of Professor Bhullar in Punjab Vidhan Sabha where SAD (Badal) is in majority, CM Badal is again deceiving Sikhs by approaching PM Manmohan Singh who has no constitutional power in commuting death sentence of Prof. Bhullar.
Peermohammad announced that if elected to SGPC, it will bring a resolution in favor of Prof. Bhullar in SGPC and will start a public campaign to push Punjab Government to hold a special session to pass resolution demanding commutation of Bhullar’s sentence.
On December 12, 2011 Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) with the support of other international Human Rights NGOs will submit a petition to Navanethem Pillay, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva, Switzerland urging UNHCHR to intervene and impress upon the Government of India to stop execution of Professor Devenderpal Singh Bhullar.
