Seek apology, SAD tells Cong and AAP on sacrilege issue


DW BUREAU / Chandigarh Shiromani Akali Dal today asked the Congress and Aam Aadmi party and their govts, Chief Ministers as well as some so called and self styled Panthic bodies and leaders to offer a collective , categorical and public apology at the feet of the Holiest Shri Guru Granth Sahib "for the bajjar paap ( sacrilege ) committed against the Shabad Guru by them through outrageous lies over the issue of sacrilege. "Three govts , four vengeful Chief Ministers , three SITs and several self styled religious bodies and personalities as well as political leaders such as Amarinder, Channi, Bhagwant Mann, , Kejriwal, Sukhjinder Randhawa, Warring etc worked on the anti Sikh conspiracy day and night. But the great Guru Sahiban exposed their falsehood and vindicated the Truth" said senior Akali leaders S Balwinder Singh Bhunder , S Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal , S Harcharan Singh Bains and Sh Harish Rai Dhanda at s press conference at the party headquarters here this afternoon. SAD Gen Secretary S Charanjit Singh Brar was also present The SAD leaders said that the "anti Panth forces which Cong & AAP represented committed the supreme folly and ultimate sin of trying to confront the holy Shri Guru Granth Sahib and indulged in outrageous lies in the name of the exalted Shabad Guru. Only Shri Guru Granth Sahib can grant forgiveness to these anti Sikh conspirators for such grievous religious sin ( bajjar paap). The fight was always between truth symbolised by Shri Guru Granth Sahib on the one hand and the shameless and sacrilegious lies which these parties and their govts as well as some self styled "Panthic" leaders indulged in during the past seven years on the other," said the Akali leaders " The pain endured by the tallest Panthic leader S Parkash Singh Badal and by S Sukhbir Singh Badal, the entire SAD leadership, office bearers, workers and the devoted Sikh masses is beyond the power of language to express. The evil anti Panth conspirators seemed to have their way for some time and they made every Sikh suspect every other Sikh. But we always had faith in the ultimate justice of Shri Guru Granth Sahib. Finally, Truth has triumphed," said the SAD leaders while commenting on the report of the SIT on the sacrilege which "completely exposes the lies and vicious propaganda of AAP, Cong and of other anti Panthic and self styled and self appointed organisations and personalities who were out to tarnish the image of Sikh leaders including S Parkash Singh Badal.
