    US sikhs question the logic of SGPC announcing probe panel

    I P Singh, TNN | Aug 7, 2012, 08.40PM IST

    JALANDHAR: NRI Sikhs and even some leaders of SGPC and Shiromani Akali Dal have been left wondering that SGPC President Avtar Singh Makkar has announced to form a three member committee to "probe" the firing incident in Gurudwara in US which claimed life of six Sikhs.

    "How can SGPC investigate something which happened in US when they don't have any recognition here. Does SGPC leadership think that they can question FBI or US police about it? Are they fooling the Sikhs or themselves with such gimmicks which are nothing but ridiculous," said Sandeep Singh Chahal, a US resident, who also runs a media outlet there for the community .

    "We as US citizens have better authority than SGPC to questions or officials here. The police and government agencies are already working overtime to get to the bottom of the issue apart from reacting immediately. SGPC can't even ensure justice for Sikhs in Punjab then why should it rush to US to pretend anything like that," he said.

    "We were astonished after reading the news that SGPC President Avatr Singh Makkar has announced that a three member panel would be visiting US to probe the incident. The SGPC enquiries even in Punjab are either not completed or remain under question marks for their fairness. It will be enough if they manage their affairs in Punjab. Even their enquiry in Waraich Gurudwara case has put Akal Takht Jathedar in dock and how can they claim to hold enquiry in US,' said Gurnal Singh Sandhar, a dellas based Sikh community leader.

    Meanwhile interaction with some SGPC leaders revealed that they were also feeling embarrassed with the announcement. "None was consulted over the issue and we learnt about an enquiry panel and even English speaking capabilities of a one of its one or two members are under doubt," revealed a senior SGPC office bearer.

    California based Dalwinder Singh Dhoot also questioned the announcement while holding that this was more a subject of ridicule than to be taken seriously.

    History is a great teacher. Remember Hondh Chillar activities and follow ups carried out by actors staging for political gain. What results and what follow-ups :mad:


    We never learn. Forget about all these "Khotey Annas"/false coins. People of Oakcreek have shown much fortitude, dignity and wisdom and hardly need any such clowns to interfere.

    May God bless the people of Oakcreek and save them from such people and opportunists.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    NO JIOS..the SGPC has to constitute a Committee.......after all the SGPC itself is a Comittee....So IF a committee doesnt produce committees what will it produce ??

    Secondly IF the SGPC did not forma committee of 3...how can it submit a Report to the Five to consider it and then come out with a Final Decisive Communique.."WE the Five Find that...THERE is NO GURDWARA in Oak creek Wisconsin. There was NO SGGS parkash, there was NO Nishan Sahib and No sangat present. Therefore we conclude that a FEW miscreant SIKHS are trying to cause trouble and Bring about a Law and order situation in the USA. These miscreants are ordered to cease and desist OR Religious Action will be taken against them. ( ref Varraich Incident vis a vis Gurdwara demolition by Dera Beas- SGPC Committee of 3 was constituted, due Report submitted to Five, and resultant Hukmanmah issued by Five via Jathedar Akal Takht that there was No gurdwara nor SGGS in Varraich Village and therefore the Beas Dera Gang did NOT Demolish any Gurdawra nor cause any sacrilege to SGGS and its a few Miscreant SIKHS who are endangering Peace and Order in Punjab by their actions Case Closed.)

    And further the "Akali Dal Badal" in DELHI has also as usual gathered a few turbanned "sikh looking sikhs" and few Bhagwa robed co coreligionists of the RSS/BJP etc and WAVED a few UNSHEATHED SWORDS and Placard bearing noisy Demonstration outside the US Embassy in Delhi to show "Sikh-Hindu" Anger at USA Inaction and injustice "AGAINST MINORITIES" !!! This is the MIRI Part of the SGPC-Akali Dal badal nexus !! MIRI waves naked swords on the streets while the PIRI constitutes committees and passes resolutions.....Perfect Combination of Miri-Piri.
