‘Need to revive federation’

Amritsar: The All-India Sikh Students’ Federation (Shaheed Bhai Amrik Singh) stressed on reviving the federation and called upon Sikh organisations to join hands to unitedly achieve the panthic interests here on Saturday.

It also passed several resolutions, including designating the city of Golden Temple as the holy city. A resolution asked the Union Government to repeal all three laws on farming and to announce a government job for a member of those families, who lost their members during the undergoing peaceful struggle.

It resolved to intimate the present Sikh youth with the history of Sikh Gurus and warriors and urged the government to incorporate Sikh history in the syllabi of schools, besides teaching Punjabi as first language and announcing it as an official language.

Kanwar Charrat Singh, who is nephew of Bhai Amrik Singh, former head of the AISSF who was killed along with Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale during Operation Bluestar, was unanimously appointed president of the AISSF. — TNS
