Chandigarh, April 2, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)
Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal today took strong notice of anti-social forces prevailing on the Punjab government and not allowing the mortal remains of Hazoori Ragi Bhai Nirmal Singh Khalsa to be consigned to flames at the cremation ground at Verka.
Stating that the mortal remains of the renowned Gurmat Sangeet exponent had been insulted by this act, the SAD President asked chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh to intervene and ensure such incidents were not allowed to occur in the State.
“Such acts are against the spirit of humanity and communal brotherhood and have the capacity to spiral out of control and result in serious consequences for society.
Those responsible for locking the Verka cremation ground must be taken to task and proceeded against.
Also a clear directive should be issued by the government that no COVID -19 victim will be discriminated and denied last rites in this manner”.
