    11 member ladies jatha stopped from presenting Bangles to Jathedars for inaction against Sirsa Sauda

    Radical Sikh outfits on Sunday marched from Takht Damdama Sahib here to Bathinda to protest against Dera Sacha Sauda and pressure the government to release SAD (Panch Pardhani) president Daljit Singh Bittu.Activists who gathered at Takht Damdama Sahib accused the Parkash Singh Badal government of conniving with the Sirsa-based Dera “after using his support for the election of his daughter-in- law Harsimrat Kaur from Bathinda“. The speakers included Harpal Singh Cheema of SAD (Panch Pardhani), Hardeep Singh, Darshan Singh Jagga and Baljinder Singh, all of who accused Badal of sabotaging their campaign against the Dera.

    They alleged those committed to implementing the Akal Takht edict of May 17, 2007, for forcing the closure of the Dera Sacha Sauda set-up at Salabatpura were being put behind bars.

    A separate “shaheedi jatha“ of 11 women activists (whose family members have been either killed or arrested during clashes with Dera followers) attempted to set out towards the Dera at Salabatpura, and offered bangles for all Takht jathedars and SGPC members for their “failure to implement the hukamnama“. However, the police took them in preventive custody just as they stepped out of the main gate of Takht Damdama Sahib.

    Later, other Sikh activists marched towards Bathinda to submit a memorandum to the deputy commissioner, but were stopped near the city bus stand by a heavy police contingent, where ADC C. Siban accepted the memorandum.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
