Hoshairpur (August 30, 2010): The Dal Khalsa on Monday asked the Akal Takht and the SGPC to install the portrait of Bhai Dilawar Singh at Sikh Central Museum, Amritsar on Aug 31st to commemorate his 15th martyrdom day.
Notably, Dilawar Singh was a human bomb that assassinated the late chief minister of Punjab Beant Singh on 31st August 1995 at civil secretariat, Chandigarh. The co-accused in the case Balwant Singh and Jagtar Singh Hawara has been awarded death sentence by the special designated CBI court in 2007.
Calling both Indira Gandhi and Beant Singh as symbol of tyranny, the radical Sikh group today shot off a letter to Akal Takht jathedar and SGPC chief urging them to install portrait of Dilawar Singh as the Sikh premier institution has installed portraits of Bhai Beant Singh, Bhai Satwant Singh, Bhai Sukdev Singh and Bhai Harjinder Singh Jinda- the assassins of late Indira Gandhi and Army chief Gen A S Vaidya.
In a statement party head H S Dhami called Dilawar Singh their ‘quomi martyr’ as he sacrificed his life to restore Sikh human rights, which were being brutally crushed by Congress regime of that time.
He said the killings of youth were order of the day under Beant Singh that forced him to take extreme step. “His (Dilawar Singh’s) contribution towards the Sikh cause should not be seen in isolation. He acted as per Sikh traditions and commands great respect amongst Sikh masses notwithstanding his status in the eyes of the (Indian) establishment.
