    High Court Advocate Seeks Akal Takhat’s Help in Preserving Honour of Women
    By: Sikh24 Editors

    NEW DELHI (January 2, 2013)–Senior Delhi High Court Advocate HS Phoolka has written to the Akal Takhat Sahib Jathedar to issue a directive in the name of the Sikh Nation to help preserve the honour of all women. Sardar Phoolka requested the Akal Takhat Sahib Jathedar to request all Sikhs from refraining from any obscene language that is often used to address women.

    Sardar Phoolka’s request has come after the recent rape case that was shocked the entire Indian community.

    As a senior member of the Sikh Gurdwara Sudhar Lehar, HS Phoolka alleged that cusswords have become a fashion statement for the Punjabis. Such words which are derogatory to our mothers and sisters should be shunned by the Sikh Community.

    HS Phoolka even expressed that such words are often heard inside premises of Gurdwaras, which should actually be helping to empower the women and preserve their honour within the community. He also expressed that a directive from the Akal Takhat Sahib would help establish positive image of the Sikh Community infront of the entire world.

    On December 16, a woman and her male friend, were raped on a private bus in New Delhi by 6 men. Both were beaten severely and Damini, the female, was brutally raped. Both were then thrown out of the moving bus. Damini succumbed to her injuries after battling for over 12 days.

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!
