    RSS chief warns of conversion of Sikhs

    Jalandhar, October 2
    Criticising alleged conversion of Dalits into Christians, RSS chief K.S. Sudarshan, today blamed the Sikh leaders for the burgeoning situation. “They are all silent.”
    Speaking at a Sangh function here on the last day of his visit to Punjab, Mr Sudarshan said Christian bodies were doing conversions in areas of Ferozepore, Gurdaspur, Amritsar, Jalandhar, Hoshiarpur, Ludhiana and Sangrur. He even blamed the SGPC for not doing anything to stop the trend. “We had asked the SGPC to pass a resolution asking Sikhs not to turn towards Christianity, but nothing happened.”
    He also accused the political leaders of doing nothing for the sake of vote politics. “This is dangerous for the society.”
    Doing a balancing act after massive protests to his visit to Amritsar a few days back, Mr Sudarshan today said that the Khalsa Panth was created for the protection of Hinduism.
    But former Punjab Chief Minister, Parkash Singh Badal, has refuted the allegations made by the RSS chief on alleged conversions. Mr Badal today said nothing of this sort was happening in the state.
    Meanwhile, the paddy disaster has also made political leaders suddenly active. Speaking on the sudden crisis, Mr Parkash Singh Badal said that the affected farmers should be compensated for the non-procurement of the paddy from the Centre’s disaster fund. The Akali Dal chief added asked that agriculture in the state be declared a “sick industry.”
    Condemning the recent episode of a state Minister defending an education officer who was caught taking bribe, Mr Badal said Mr Rakesh Pandey be made to step down as Technical Education Minister and a case registered against him.
    UNI adds: Mr Sudarshan said various Christian outfits had undertaken conversions in different parts of the state including Gurdaspur, Hoshiarpur and a large number of Mazhabi Sikhs had embraced Christianity. He termed unfortunate the allegation levelled against the RSS that it was involved in the conspiracy that led to Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination.

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!
