The Shiromani Akali Dal is considering taking legal action against the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for defaming the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) in sacrilege cases, claimed senior SAD leaders while commenting on investigation into the sacrilege case here today.

Some anti-Panthic forces represented by the Cong and AAP lied to the sangat in the name of Guru Granth Sahib, which is a heinous sin. It is clear that they wanted the Sikhs to fight each other and wage a civil war in the nation. Vir Singh Lopoke, SAD leader

Senior leaders of SAD, including Vir Singh Lopoke, Gurpartap Singh Tikka, Shiromani Committee members Bhai Rajinder Singh Mehta, Bhai Ram Singh, Harjap Singh Sultanwind, Talbir Singh Gill, Gurpreet Singh Randhawa and Surinder Singh Sultanwind, today addressed a press conference and alleged that leaders of some Panthic organisations, along with the Congress and Aam Aadmi Party governments and their Chief Ministers, had defamed the SAD by lying for their political motives.

They had lied to sangat in the name of Guru Granth Sahib, which is a heinous sin. Such allegations have caused great mental suffering to the entire leadership of the SAD, the office-bearers and the Badal family.
