    AISSF urges SGPC to clear its stand on Kumbh Mela

    AMRITSAR: All India Sikh Students Federation president Karnail Singh Peer Mohammad has urged the premier Sikh organization Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee to clear its stand on Kumbh Mela.

    His statement comes in the wake of SGPC accepting invitation extended by Rashtriya Swayam Sewak Sangh president Mohan Bhagwat to attend the kumbh mela. Condemning the committee decision, Peer Mohd said Sikhs are a distinct community which does not believe in superstition and by SGPC willing to attend the mela, the Sikh leadership is attempting to bring the community back towards superstition against which the first Sikh guru, Guru Nanak Dev had started crusade.

    Maintaning that Sikh community is known for its valour and bravery, the federation president added that Sikh community respects all the religions but forgetting one’s own glorious past and following the tenets of other religion is not acceptable.

    SPN forum readers,

    The Mohan Bhagwat mentioned in this article is the same Mohan Bhagwat who said this:

    http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/india/39898-lawyer-india-rape-case-blames-victims.html#post178294

    I am quoting from above link: Mohan Bhagwat, the head of the pro-Hindu Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh that underpins the country’s main opposition political party, said rapes only occur in Indian cities, not in its villages, because women in cities adopt Western lifestyles.

    actually what he said was.."Rapes occur in "INDIA"...and NOT in "BHARAT".
    India is the regime run by the Nehru-Gandhi-Congress...and BHARAT is the one run by Modi-Advani-BJP-RSS etc. Also "INDIA" is the English speaking/modern/city/IT savvy/ westernized society...while BHARAT is the imaginary RAAM RAAJ super pure "Begampura " society of the BJP+RSS combine..

    Rapes do occur in villages and in greater numbers..but mostly unreported due to shame and close knit society and ILLETERACY and alck of eductaion about women rights etc.. He also forgot to mention the LEGALISED RAPE among the hundred thousand DEV DASEES...Virgins donated to HINDU MANDIRS !!

    Oh Yes! Those are the stories conveniently forgotten. As for what he "actually said" .... I just re-posted words attributed to him in the newspaper article, with the given link. Maybe the newspaper got it wrong. Won't be the first time words have been minced.
