    No signs of revival of militancy in Punjab


    New Delhi, May 20 (PTI)
    There are no signs of revival of militancy in Punjab, despite attempts from across the border, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal said today.

    "Though there are attempts from across the border, there is no upsurge of militancy. Punjab is a very peaceful state and people of Punjab are very secular. There is communal harmony," he told reporters after a meeting with Home Minister P Chidambaram here.

    Badal said some organisations were indulging in activities to revive militancy. "But it has no significance," he said.

    Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Maken had said in Lok Sabha recently that Sikh militant groups especially those based abroad were trying to revive militancy in Punjab and a close watch is being maintained on their activities.

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!
