    March Issue: Panch Pardhani Moved to High Court Against Arrest of Leaders|SikhSiyasat.net – Sikh News and Multimedia.

    Chandigarh (May 31, 2010): In wake of arrests of party leaders, the Shiromani Akali Dal (Panch Pardhani) has moved pulled the Punjab Police and Punjab Government to the State High Court. In a petition moved by through their counsel RS Bains, Panch Parthani has informed the High Court that they are organizing a memorial march dedicated to Tri-century of Sikh rule established by Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, from 1 to 6 June. Prior information in this regard was duly tendered to DGP (Punjab Police) and Chief Secretary of Punjab Government.

    “This even is neither banned by the Government, nor any notice was served on party in this regard, but the police is hunting Panch Pardhani leaders to arrest them, just to foil the march, at the political directions of the ruling party.” alleged Bhai Harpal Singh Cheema, Secretary Generall of Panch Pardhani, who is organizing the residual strength of the Party to make the Memorial March a success. Party counsel informed that while accepting the petition of SAD (Panch Pardhani), the High Court has served the notice on Punjab Government to file a reply at ten in morning on Tuesday. “This is a democratic country and everyone has right to democratically and peacefully hold processions, mark historic events and propagate their ideology.” said RS Bains. He said that they are hopeful that the Court shall uphold the democratic spirit of the constitution by granting requested relief.

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!
