Sukhbir seeks criminal case against Veerpal for hurting Sikh sentiments

DW BUREAU / CHANDIGARH The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Monday submitted a complaint to the Chandigarh Police demanding a case be registered against Dera Sirsa supporter Veerpal Kaur for hurting the sentiments of the Sikh community by committing blasphemy against the Guru Sahiban.SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal led the party delegation including S Balwinder Singh Bhundur, Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra and Dr Daljit Singh Cheema and demanded that Veerpal Kaur be booked under Sections 153, 153 (a), 153 (b) 295 (a) and 298 (b) of IPC to ensure justice was delivered to all Sikhs, Punjabi community and Guru Naam Levas all over the world. The complaint said on July 14 Veerpal made derogatory and malicious allegations aimed at tarnishing Sukhbir Singh Badal's personal, political, public and social reputation. It said subsequently the allegations were repeated on July 15. The complaint said a legal notice was sent to Veerpal Kaur following which she admitted that she had never met the SAD President and that she regretted making false allegations against him. It said since this proved beyond a doubt that Veerpal had lied earlier, a thorough investigation needed to be done to find out who were the sponsors who were in criminal connivance with the accused to destabilise peace and harmony in Punjab. The complaint said it was shocking that even though Veerpal apologised for her comments she simultaneously issued blasphemous remarks against Sikhism and it's Guru Sahiban specifically the first Guru - Nanak Dev ji and the tenth Guru - Gobind Singh ji. It said these remarks were widely circulated and even made viral with the preconceived conspiracy to outrage Sikh sentiments. The complaint said it was a known fact that Gurmeet Ram Raheem was a convicted rapist and had committed atrocities against women. It said comparing Guru Nanak Dev ji with a convicted rapist was the gravest form of insult and had hurt the sentiments of the entire Sikh community. It said besides this Veerpal had also depicted the Dera head and Guru Gobind Singh ji as equal which was blasphemous.It said the complaint had been filed in as per jurisdiction because the SAD head office fell in the Union Territory.
