Top leaders of Akali Dal are accused of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib, SGPC chief hurt the religious sentiments of Sikh Sangat by promoting them– Minister Kuldeep Dhaliwal

 -SGPC’s work is to protect Sikh society and culture, not political gains – Dhaliwal

 Jalandhar, May– The Aam Aadmi Party has raised serious questions over Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) chief Harjinder Singh Dhami campaigning for the Akali Dal (Badal) candidate and seeking votes in the Jalandhar Lok Sabha by-election.

 In a press conference held in Jalandhar on Monday, senior leader of Aam Aadmi Party and Agriculture Minister of Punjab Government, Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal said that SGPC’s job is to propagate Sikhism,  not to promote any political party.Therefore, SGPC chief should not do anything to hurt the dignity of his position.

He said that the top leadership of the Akali Dal, for whom SGPC chief Harjinder Singh Dhami is campaigning, has faced serious allegations like sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib and firing at Sikh Sangat. By propagating such a party, he has hurt the sentiments of the Sikh Sangat.

Questioning the SGPC head, he said “Why does he remain silent on the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib and the incident of firing on Sikh Sangat in Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan?” Dhaliwal said that he has not spoken anything on this matter till date. He always kept his silence. While both these incidents have hurt the sikh sangat deeply.

He said that the duty of SGPC is to provide religious and social education to the children of Sikh community and to protect Sikh culture. It is quite wrong to use such an organization for political gains. He appealed to the SGPC chief that he should fulfill his responsibility honestly as per the laws of SGPC and should stay away from political activities
