    64th Sikh Jatha arrested by Police

    By Daljeet Singh

    Published: June 7, 2010

    Talwandi Sabo (June 7, 2010): As per information provided by Baljinder Singh Khalsa the Punjab Police today arrested 16 members of a Sikh Jatha, 64th of its’ kind. Some Sikh organizations that believe in peaceful struggle to secure closure of Salabatpura (a place in Bathinda District) branch of Dera Sauda Sirsa (DSS). DSS head Gurmeet Ram Raheem is accused of hurting feelings of Sikh masses, as he attempted to personify Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh, in 2007 at Salabatpura. Since then Sikhs are opposing the activities of this Dera. On 22 March 2009, Sikh organizations, including SAD (Panch Pardhani), Ek Noor Khalsa Fauj, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Satikar Sabha and Malwa Tarna Dal, started a peaceful struggle to pressurize the Punjab Government to close Salabatpura dera. A jatha, usually consisting eleven Sikhs proceeds towards Salabatpura from Takht Damdama Sahib, but courts arrest wherever stopped by the police.

    Last Sunday (June 6, 2010) Punjab police arrested all sixteen members of Sikhs Jatha. Baljinder Singh Khalsa (Ek noor fauj), Darshan Singh, Mata Malkeet Kaur (Panch Parhdani) and Gupreet Singh BhainiBagha were prominent among present on the occasion.

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!
