Reaction to DSGMC’s participation in Rashriya Sikh Sangat program termed as “extremist” activities by certain media section
New Delhi: Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) officials participated in a program organized by controversial Rashtriya Sikh Sangat, a wing of Hindutva fountainhead Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS). DSGMC is currently controlled by Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) that has decades long power alliance with Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP), a Hindutva political outfit and ruling party of India. DSGMC is headed by Manjit Singh GK who maintains himself as one of the biggest propagandist of “Indian Nationalism”.
Various office-bearers of DSGMC reportedly participated in a program organized by Rashtriya Sikh Sangat in Delhi on November 10, 2014.
RSS’ offensive against religious, ethnic, linguistic and cultural minorities is not a hidden agenda. RSS’ hostility to the Sikh religion is also known to everybody. Giani Joginder Singh Vedanti, during his term as Akal Takht Jathedar has banned a march by Rashtriya Sikh Sangat and declared the Hindutva outfit as ‘anti-Sikh’ organization.
In this situation it is natural for the concerned Sikh circles to raise alarm against possible saffonization (Hinduization) of institutes controlling the affairs of the Sikh Gurdwaras.
However certain sections of Indian media are hell bent to create a sentiment against those Sikh sections who are raising alarm against anti-Sikh activities of RSS. In a news-writeup the “Covert Wires” (CW) news desk went on to term Dal Khalsa UK as an extremist organization and claimed that the UK based Sikh body was issuing “threats” to various members of DSGMC for taking part in Rashtriya Sikh Sangat program.
“Several office bearers of the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) were threatened by Sikh Extremists after organizing a Rashtriya Sikh Sangat program in New Delhi” reads a report by CW News Desk.
“Britain based Dal Khalsa is urging the Gurdwara committees in Punjab to isolate the DSGMC and its affiliates. There are provocative campaigns being led to create an internal rebel against the DSGMC” the report reads further.
The CW news in it self is a piece of RSS propaganda against the Sikh religion. Sikhs section need to remain alert and united against RSS attacks on Sikh organizations and Sikh religion.
