    Ludhiana, Punjab: The constitution of a commission by the president Delhi Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee, Paramjit Singh Sarna, to probe into the recent firing incident in the city has drawn criticism from Surjit Singh, Punjab president of Danga Peerat Welfare Society on Wednesday. He remarked that Sarna had not allowed them to organize an akhand path in the memory of the riot victims on the occasion of 25th anniversary of 1984 Anti-Sikh riots, but had went on to honour Sheila Dikshit, chief minister, Delhi.

    He rued that it is injustice with the riot victims who have been suffering for a long time. Condemning the steps being taken by the Delhi Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee, he said it was an irony that Paramjit Singh Sarna had expressed grief over the clash between the Sikhs and the city police, but had never thought anything for the welfare of the victims of 1984 riots. He also said that they would gherao the commission that would reach the city on December.

    Last year ie in November 2009 Sarna did not participate in the rally held by Simranjit Singh Mann against 1984 anti Sikh pogroms at Gurdwara Rakabganj in New Delhi.Gurdwara Rakabganj is under the control of Sarna's DSGMC.

    Iko thaily day chatay vatay aa badal tay sarna tay ravi inder tay ramoowalia tay longowal dal tay barnala dal.

    Naalay BJP,Congress,Communist,Samajvadi etc are also same .

    They have the same RSS soch.

    All these parties play friendly matches between themselves.All those who vote for them are fools.

    Let us bring Akali Dal Mann and Akali Dal panch pradani in the forefront and bring a Sikh revolution.

    Ok! i found the original news: The Tribune, Chandigarh, India - Delhi and neighbourhood

    Rift over ardaas for riots victims
    Tribune News Service
    New Delhi, October 28



    The conduct of an ardaas (prayer) for the victims of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots has acquired political overtones and resulted in differences within the Sikh community. The ardaas to mark the 25 years of the riots is slated for November 7. It will mark the culmination of a weeklong akhand path starting November 1—the date riots engulfed the national Capital in the aftermath of the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.


    President of the All India Riot Victim Relief Committee (AIRVRC) Kuldip Singh Bhogal today alleged that he had sought permission from the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) for performing ardaas at Bala Sahib near Sarai Kale Khan, but the request was turned down.


    Bhogal, who owes allegiance to Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal-led Shriomani Aklai Dal, alleged that the request had been turned down as DSGMC chief Paramjit Singh Sarna feared that committee members might speak against the Congress party during the ardaas.


    Sarna, on the other hand, denied that the AIRVRC had approached him on the subject, and said that the DSGMC had decided to organise an ardaas on November 2 at Gurdwara Rakab Ganj located near Parliament.



    This is not the first time that differences have emerged within the community over a sensitive matter like the anti-Sikh riots. In the past, people within the community, some of whom are ideologically more in line with the SAD, have been critical of Sarna. On the other hand, Sarna, who has held sway over the cash-rich DSGMC, takes a middle path.
    Some 3,000 Sikhs had died in the riots and the Congress-led UPA government had paid compensation to the victims following the tabling of the Justice Nanavati Commission report.

    Aman singh ji

    Whatever the reason the truth is That on 25th anniverery of 1984 riots DSGPC hardly did anything.It was not a small thing Delhi was totaly silent on 25th anniverery of 1984 riots
    thanks to sarna and his congress masters.If this sarna had been a real honest guy He should had organised a big Akhand paath with inviting all the journalists and telling the younger generation of sikhs what happened in 1984.All he did was organised a small ardas (if he did) and then both opponents Sarna(congress) and Bhogal(badal) started blame game
