1984 Anti-Sikh Pogrom Panthic Bodies Constitute 1984 Memorial Panel


1947-2014 (Archived)

Though once again welcoming the formation of the five-member panel by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parabandhak Committee (SGPC) to decide about space and shape of the June 1984 Memorial, the Panthic organisations on Friday claimed that the SGPC has done little in this regard — The panel was constituted on June 8 and was scheduled to submit its report on August 8 but is yet to hold a meeting.

Now, the panthic organisations have called upon Sikhs to come together after August 8 to raise the memorial. It has also formed a four-member Saka Darbar Sahib Memorial Committee, which will prepare a comprehensive memorial monument proposal to assist the SGPC panel. The panel will submit an interim report on August 2 to the Jathedar of Akal Takht Sahib.

The decision was announced in a press conference called by the four panthic organisation — Dal Khalsa, Khalsa Action Committee led by Bhai Mohkam Singh, Shiromani Akali Dal (Panch Pardani) led by Harpal Singh Cheema and Panthic Sewa Lehar headed by Baba Baljit Singh Daduwal.

“The SGPC do not seem serious about the issue. It has been delayed for long,” said Dal Khalsa general secretary Kanwarpal Singh.

“To inform and assist the SGPC regarding the scope and possibilities of the memorial, the panel has been formed. Former IAS Gurtej Singh, contemporary author and analyst Ajmer Singh, former bureaucrat A R Darshi, human rights activist Professor Jagmohan Singh are the panel members,” said Kanwarpal Singh, adding that the panel will seek advice from the masses.

There is a saying.."Waiting for the lip of the camel to fall..."
This is a Punjabi Proverb...(Utth da bullh kadon digegeah )

background: a jackal passing by a camel for the first time noticed that the BOTTOM LIP of the camel looked like it was ready to DROP OFF. As he was very hungry..the Jackal thought to himslef..I will just follow this camel...the moment his lower lip falls off..I will have a sumptious meal !! .......

Expecting the SGPC/BADAL/Makkar/JAT etc to do anything for the SIKHS..is like the Jackal waiting for the camel's lower lip to fall off !!:grinningsingh::grinningsingh::grinningsingh:
