Sikhs Won’t Tolerate Indira Statue Proposal

ਇੰਦਰਾ ਗਾਂਧੀ ਸਿੱਖ ਕੌਮ ਦੀ ਕਾਤਲ ਦਾ ਪੰਜਾਬ ਵਿੱਚ ਬੁੱਤ ਇਸ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਜਿਵੇਂ ਯਹੂਦੀਆਂ ਦੇ ਕਾਤਲ ਹਿਟਲਰ ਦਾ ਬੁੱਤ ਇਸਰਾਈਲ ਵਿੱਚ ਲਉਣ ਦੀ ਗੱਲ ਕਰੇ ।

Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh has objected to a proposal by a Youth Congress leader to install a statue of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi at the Congress Bhavan in Ludhiana. Talking to media in Amritsar on Monday, the Jathedar said, “Congress-led Punjab government has decided to install the statue of Indira Gandhi in Ludhiana. Sikhs will not tolerate any such move to disturb peace.” The Ludhiana unit of the Congress, meanwhile, has distanced itself from the move.

He said, “Punjabi language was not given due respect on signboards. I hail the activists who protested against discrimination against Punjabi. Punjab government should immediately withdraw cases registered against the those who love Punjabi.” He also asked Sikhs to remember the Sikhs killed in the 1984 riots. “I ask all Sikhs to recite the name of God to pay homage to all martyrs got killed in riots in 1984 for at least one minute at 6 pm on November 1,” said the Jathedar.
He again repeated that Rashtriya Sikh Sangat allegedly failed in replying to eight questions asked by Committee formed by Akal Takht in 2004, which was followed by issuing directive against it along with parent organisation RSS. “We have received few complaints about Sikhs who went to Rashtriya Sikh Sangat event in Delhi. We will take decision on them in next meeting of five Jathedars,” he said. source from
