Amritsar, February 18, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
In the matter related to restriction by the Government of India on the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) Jatha going to Pakistan to attend and mark the centenary of Saka Nankana Sahib, the SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur on Thursday registered her protest by writing letters to the Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi and Home Minister (HM) Amit Shah.

Bibi Jagir Kaur said in her letter that the decision of the Government of India had hurt the sentiments of the Sikh sangat and the government should reconsider its decision.

Bibi Jagir Kaur said, “The pilgrims who have got visas should be allowed to attend the programmes to be held on February 21 at Sri Nankana Sahib. It is disrespectful to Sikh sentiments to restrict the Jatha at the last minute despite the completion of preparations.”

The SGPC president reminded PM Narendra Modi and HM Amit Shah that the SGPC had written a letter to the Ministry of External Affairs on January 12 regarding the Jatha.

“But it is surprising that the Jatha was not permitted to go ahead yesterday (on Wednesday) at the last minute”, said Bibi Jagir Kaur.

She wrote that the sentiments of the Sikh community are attached to mark the centenary of Saka Nankana Sahib, which have been hurt.

Demanding to reopen the corridor of Sri Kartarpur Sahib, Bibi Jagir Kaur said, “The corridor of Sri Kartarpur Sahib has also been suspended for a long time. It was very unfortunate to be barred from visiting our holy shrines for which serious consideration should be given. I demand immediate reopening of the Kartarpur Sahib corridor.”
