    'Uma Bharti go back', cry Christians in Punjab

    Jalandhar, Sep 25 (UNI) After facing a wrath from Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) activists, BJP leader Ms Uma Bharti today came across some agitated Christians who held a demonstration criticising her 'Tiranga yatra'.

    The activists of the Punjab Christian Movement, opposing the 'Tiranga Yatra', raised slogans, ''go back Uma Bharti''.

    Led by the organisation's president Hamid Masih and carrying black flags, the activists were stopped by police at some distance from the Circuit house where Ms Bharti was addressing a press conference.

    Mr Masih said the 'Tiranga yatra' of Ms Bharti was not a 'yatra' to spread message of peace but was aimed at ''fanning communalism and hatred'' in the country.

    The Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) activists had yesterday stoned the 'yatra' in Rajpura after Ms Bharti entered Punjab.

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!
