Amritsar (January 28, 2010): The Dal Khalsa has condemned the ‘blasphemous’ write up titled Harminder Sahib, Golden Temple – The Holy City of Amritsar posted on the official website of the RSS. In a statement party spokesperson Kanwarpal Singh and general secretary Dr Manjinder Singh said the writer Ramakant Tiwari has not only denigrated the Sikh institutions and Sikh martyrs but has also questioned the separate identity of the Sikh people.
The contents and tone of the article was highly provocative, derogatory and objectionable, they said and added that it seems the mind of the author was filled with hatred against Sikhs and Muslims.
By saying that NO MUSLIM ‘FAQUIR’ HAD BEEN A TRUE ‘FAQUIR’ and suggesting that additions in the ‘Guru Granth Sahib’ by some Muslim ‘faquirs must be deleted’, the writer has attempted to create animosity between Sikhs and Muslims, said they.
The leaders asked Shiromani Akali Dal head, Akal Takht jathedar and SGPC president to explain their position vis-a-vis RSS theory on Sikhs. Contrary to the RSS theory, they said Sikhs were unlike Hindus. The Sikh Panth would never tolerate such vicious propaganda against their religious ethos and their martyrs including Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, Beant Singh, Satwant Singh and Kehar Singh.
“We condemn the SAD, SGPC and Sant Samaj for lending credence to RSS theory that “Sikhs were part of Hindu religion” by mixing Nanakshahi with Bikrami calendar.” said Dal Khalsa President HS Dhammi.
