Amritsar: The SGPC has objected to month-long parole granted to controversial Dera Sacha Sauda head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh. SGPC chief Harjinder Singh Dhami said on the one hand, the BJP-led governments at the Centre and in Haryana were not considering premature release of “Bandi Singhs”, despite completion of their sentences, on the other, the Sirsa dera head, a convict in heinous crimes such as sacrilege, rape and murder, was being obliged time and again for petty political gains.
