New Delhi, April 5

Takht Patna Sahib Jathedar Giani Ranjit Singh today requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah to quash the FIR registered by the Delhi Government against the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) for providing shelter and food to passengers at Gurdwara Manju ka Tila during the ongoing lockdown.

He highlighted the contribution of the committee in fighting Covid-19 and said all passengers had come to the gurdwara on their own. He said the DSGMC had intimated about their stay to the authorities well in time. “The DSGMC served langar to everyone while practicing social distancing,” said the jathedar.

He condemned the Delhi Government for filing an FIR against the DSGMC with mala fide intention to defame the religious institution and for equating the Sikh community to the Tablighi Jamaat. He requested the PM to quash the FIR and encourage the DSGMC for providing selfless service to the country during the pandemic.
