    MANSA: The curfew was lifted completely from Bhikhi town of Mansa district in Punjab on Wednesday while Simranjit Singh Mann President of SAD(Amritsar) has demanded interference of Akal Takht Jathedar to get justice for the Sikhs detained by police.

    Simranjit Singh Mann who held a meeting of his supporters at Ralla village said that it was first time that Sikhs were not allowed to celebrate the birth anniversary (Gurupurb) of Guru Gobind Singh. He said that the cases under sections 307 and 452 were registered without any material evidence. He demanded immediate suspension of SSP and DC of Mansa who failed to handle the situation.

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!
