    CHANDIGARH: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal sought personal intervention of Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh to ensure complete security and safety of Sikh Community in wake of ongoing turmoil in Kashmir valley and its impact on the Sikh community there.

    In a letter to the Prime Minister, Badal apprised him about the gravity of situation in the valley enclosing a copy of resolution of Jammu & Kashmir Gurdwara Parbandhak Board for his perusal.

    The Chief Minister impressed upon Dr. Singh to provide complete security cover to the Sikh community through the Central Security Agencies in Jammu & Kashmir so that the Sikh community stays back and does not leave the valley.


    The Chief Minister also mentioned in the letter that the ongoing situation in the valley and assault on Sikhs, Sikh youth and Sikh religious symbols is a matter of great concern for the nation. There have been incidents of pelting of stones also on the residential houses of the Sikhs.

    The letter further read as, "The Sikh community in the valley which believes in peace, tranquility and harmony is now feeling unsafe on account of these unfortunate incidents. The Sikh community has always stood like a rock against all odds and maintained the social fabric during the peak period of militancy".

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!
