SGPC executive passes resolution against Delhi Govt for obstructing release of Prof Bhullar, seeks GoI’s intervention

Amritsar, January 21, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee’s (SGPC) executive committee (EC) termed the cancellation of release of Prof Devinderpal Singh Bhullar by the Kejriwal government in Delhi as playing against the Sikh sentiments.

During the EC meeting held at the headquarters of SGPC on Friday, the negative attitude of Delhi government towards Prof Bhullar’s release has been strongly criticised and the intervention of the government of India was demanded in this matter.

Speaking in the press conference after the EC meeting, SGPC President Advocate Harjinder Singh Dhami said that the anti-Sikh attitude of the Aam Aadmi Party has now been exposed.

“On one hand, Kishori Lal, a convict in 1984 Sikh genocide case at Kalyan Puri, Delhi, has been granted parole and furlough several times by Delhi government, while on the other hand, despite removal of all the restrictions, the release of Sikh prisoner Prof Devinderpal Singh Bhullar is being obstructed”, said Advocate Dhami.

He said that the release of Sikh prisoners was announced by the government of India in 2019, on the occasion of the 550th Prakash Gurpurb (birth anniversary) of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji but the Delhi’s Kejriwal government is not clearing the file of Prof Bhullar.

He said the SGPC will also take up the matter with the government of India and necessary legal action will also be taken as per requirement. He said that the statement made by Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal in the past of giving clean chit to the Congress in the 1984 Sikh Genocide also showed his anti-Sikh mentality. He said the Sikh would never forgive such a person with double standards.

SGPC President demanded that along with Prof Bhullar, all the Sikh prisoners who have completed their sentence should be released.

About another important decision taken by the SGPC EC, Advocate Dhami said that approval has been given to display the portraits of martyrs Bhai Krishan Bhagwan Singh and Bhai Gurjeet Singh at the Central Sikh Museum, who were martyred at Behbal Kalan in police firing during protest against the Bargari sacrilege of Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

SGPC EC also appealed that the martyrdom day of sahibzadas of the tenth Guru on December 26, as announced by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, should not be named as ‘Veer Baal Diwas’ in haste.

“This decision of the government of India regarding the martyrdom of sahibzadas is welcome but its name should be implemented only on the basis of opinion given by the Sikh organisations under the leadership of Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib”, said Advocate Dhami.

Speaking further, SGPC President said that the SGPC had taken a strict notice of distortion of Gurbani verses by a Rajasthan-based dera of Swami Brahmdev, and the concerned has now submitted an apology today. He said that the governments should form strict laws to deal with the matters related to hurting religious sentiments of Sikhs on social media.

Moreover, the SGPC EC said that it is strongly condemnable that the Sikh candidates are forced to remove their Kakaars before appearing in competitive examinations in different states. The SGPC has decided to form a sub-committee in this matter, which will establish contact with government and minority commissions and its report will be submitted to the government of India.

SGPC EC also passed the condolence resolutions and offered tributes with regards to the demise of personalities including Padma Shri Prof Kartar Singh, S. Harinder Singh Ranian, Sant Manjit Singh Harkhowal, Giani Rajinder Singh head granthi of Takht Sri Harmandar Ji Patna Sahib and Dr Hardas Singh.

Those present in the SGPC EC meeting included SGPC President, junior vice-president Principal Surinder Singh, general secretary S. Karnail Singh Panjoli, EC members S. Sarwan Singh Kular, S. Surjit Singh Garhi, S. Jarnail Singh Dogranwala, S. Balwinder Singh Vain Puin, S. Harjap Singh Sultanwind, S. Gurinderpal Singh Gora, S. Amarjit Singh Bandala, Bibi Gurpreet Kaur, S. Jodh Singh Samra, Baba Gurpreet Singh, SGPC secretary S. Mohinder Singh Ahli, additional secretaries S. Sukhdev Singh Bhurakohna, S. Pratap Singh, S. Sukhminder Singh, OSD to SGPC President S. Satbir Singh, assistant secretaries S. Kulwinder Singh Ramdas, S. Balwinder Singh Kahlwan, S. Sulakhan Singh Bhangali, S. Sukhbir Singh, S. Nirveil Singh, superintendent S. Malkit Singh Beharwal, and in-charge S. Shahbaz Singh.
