Displacement of Sikhs in Shillong intolerable, SGPC committed to provide all possible help: Jagir Kaur

Amritsar, October 11, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The action being taken by the Meghalaya government to evict the Sikhs living in Shillong is highly condemnable. Saying this here today, Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) President Bibi Jagir Kaur said that it is not logical to evict the Sikhs living in Shillong for years and the government should leave its stubbornness and let the Sikhs live happily at their ancestral houses.

She said that the Punjabi colony which the government wanted to occupy was inhabited by Sikhs.

“If the price of this land has gone up highly today, it does not mean that the Sikhs who have lived there for centuries will be displaced. It is shocking that even after 200 years of settlement, Sikhs were not being given their ownership rights”, said Bibi Jagir Kaur.

Bibi Jagir Kaur said that serious efforts have been made by the SGPC in recent years to stop the displacement of Sikhs in Shillong and the Sikh body still stands by the Sikhs in this regard.

“All possible help would be extended to the local Sikhs. The Sikhs living in Shillong would not be allowed to be displaced under the pressure of land mafia and voice would be raised at every level against injustice.

SGPC had been supporting the Sikhs in this matter from day one and when the matter came to light about three years ago, a high-level delegation of the SGPC had gone to Meghalaya to help the Sikhs. Assistance was also provided to the affected Sikhs. Moreover, financial assistance was also sent several times to complete the construction of the local Gurdwara Sahib”, said Bibi Jagir Kaur.

She said that even today the SGPC stood by the Sikhs of Meghalaya and would help them as per the need by obtaining information about the news of their displacement.

“If necessary, a delegation of the SGPC will also be sent to Meghalaya, which will liaise with the government and administration there to pursue the protection of the rights of Sikhs”, said Bibi Jagir Kaur.

SGPC President appealed to the Government of Meghalaya as well as the Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi that injustice should not allowed to happen with the Sikhs in this regard.

This AI tech may spot unseen signs of heart failure

New York, Oct 19, 2021- US researchers have developed an electrocardiogram-reading algorithm that can detect subtle signs of heart failure. Heart failure, or congestive heart failure, occurs when the heart pumps less blood than the body normally needs. For years, doctors have relied heavily on an imaging technique called an echocardiogram to assess whether a patient may be experiencing heart...
