    Panch Pardhani leader arrested; prevented from attending Shaheedi samagam of Bhai Jaspal Singh


    Ajnala/Gurdaspur, Punjab (March 29, 2013): According to information available with Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) Akali Dal Panch Pardhani (ADPP) leader Bhai Baldev Singh Sirsa was arrested by Ajnala police earlier today.

    His arrest was reportedly aimed at preventing his participation to the Shaheedi samagam held in the memory of Shaheed Jaspal Singh Gurdaspur at Village Chaur Sidhwan, near Gurdaspur.

    Bhai Jaspal Singh was killed on March 29, 2012 when the Punjab police had opened fire on a group Sikhs holding a peaceful demonstration at Gurdaspur. Bhai Jaspal Singh was a B. Tech (first year) student at Beant College of Engineering and Technology, Gurdaspur.

    According to information Bhai Baldev Singh Sirsa, who had been critical to Punjab government and current regime of Shiromani Gurudwara Prabhandak Committee (SGPC), led by ruling Badal Dal, was taken into custody by a police party led by DSP Tilak Raj.

    Bhai Baldev Singh Sirsa told Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) that he was released in the evening, after the conclusion of Shaheedi Samagam that was being held at village Chaur Sidhwan in the memory of Shaheed Bhai Jaspal Singh Gurdaspur.

    He said that DSP Tilak Raj warned him to stop criticizing the Punjab government and the SGPC.

    It is notable that Bhai Baldev Singh Sirsa has been exposing certain misdeeds of SGPC during his public addresses – such as the publication of a controversial book “Sikh Itihas” (Sikh History) in Hindi.

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!
