    Ludhiana/ Mohali (May 30, 2010): In a late night action Punjab police has arrested various leaders and workers of Shiromani Akali Dal (Panch Pardhani) in raids conducted throughout Punjab. Panch Pardhani Secretary General Bhai Harpal Singh Cheema, informed that their Party has decided to organize a ‘Holocaust Memorial March’ dedicated to Tri-century of establishment of first Sikh rule by Baba Banda Singh Bahadur and Third holocaust of Sikh history, from 1 to 6 June. He alleged that the Punjab government has imposed an undeclared ban on this pious event and in a politically motivated action Punjab police yesterday arrested senior party leaders including Bhai Kulbir Singh Barapind, Daya Singh Kakkar, Baldev Singh Sirsa, Baba Hardeep Singh Mehraj, Sandeep Singh Canadian and Gurmeet Singh Goga, besides many others.

    “In past years Panch Pardhani has organized many Khalsa Marches and other functions, nothing untoward has ever happened. This time too we sent prior information to Chief Secretary Punjab and DGP of Punjab Police.” informed HS Cheema, who alleged political conspiracy behind these arrests. He said that in an emergency meeting held by Panch Pardhani leaders it is decided that the party shall undertake the March as per the schedule. He renewed his appeal to Panthic organizations and Sikh masses to participate in the march.

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!
