Amritsar, October 8
Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) President Advocate Harjinder Singh Dhami has strongly condemned the crime of beadbi (sacrilege) of Guru Granth Sahib at Bishanpur village in Hoshiarpur district.
Advocate Dhami said that the writings of Guru Granth Sahib guides mankind the way to live a good life.
He said in the past, many crimes of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib have taken place, but due to lax performance of governments, the culprits escape punishments.
Advocate Dhami said that in this fresh incident at Hoshiarpur district, a 9-year-old migrant child tore the holy angs (parts) of Guru Granth Sahib, which seems to be a part of well-planned conspiracy.
SGPC President said that identifying the people behind this crime is important, so that the forces which are working secretly can be exposed. He appealed to the government to investigate this case seriously and take strict legal action against the people behind this crime.
Murders of Punjabi family in USA unfortunate: Advocate Dhami
SGPC President Advocate Harjinder Singh Dhami termed the murders of four members of a Punjabi family in Merced, California, USA, as unfortunate. He said the Punjabis in foreign countries achieved success and eminence with their hard work, but such incidents are causing a sense of fear among the brotherhood.
Advocate Dhami appealed to India’s Ministry of External Affairs to adopt a diplomatic approach to prevent such unfortunate incidents happening to Punjabis living abroad and to take appropriate steps for ensuring that culprits are punished in the Merced case.
