Amritsar, October 26, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) President Bibi Jagir Kaur has strongly condemned the Government of India for turning back NRI Sikh S. Darshan Singh Dhaliwal Rakhra from Delhi Airport.
SGPC President termed the attitude of the Government of India as dictatorial and said that when he came to India from the United States to attend the wedding of his family member, S. Darshan Singh Dhaliwal was turned away from the airport without any reason.
“This is major discrimination against the Sikhs, which cannot be tolerated. S. Darshan Singh Rakhra has been turned away in connection with the farmers’ movement”, said the SGPC President.
Bibi Jagir Kaur advised the Government of India to refrain from such acts and said, “if the government did not stop such awkward maneuvers, it would only lead to worsening of the situation. The government should not harass the people who are sympathetic to the farmers’ movement, but should move towards resolving the issues of protesting farmers.”
Bibi Jagir Kaur said that S. Darshan Singh has set up langar in support of farmers for a long, which is in the principle of Sikh faith and it is not right to view such work of welfare with suspicion. She said that the SGPC strongly condemns the discrimination against S. Darshan Singh Dhaliwal by the government and the issue will be raised at all levels.
