Chandigarh, July 4
Dalit organisations based in Amritsar, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Patiala, Sangrur and other districts staged protests against Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) legal head Gurpatwant Singh Pannu for his “anti-Dalit” action of burning a copy of the Constitution and insulting Dr BR Ambedkar.
The organisations which took part in the protests included the Bharatiya Valmiki Mahasabha, Patiala, Bhawadas Sanstha, Bhim Army, Dalit Bhalai Sangathan and Bharatiya Valmiki Samaj, Sangrur.
However, in Patiala, the Dal Khalsa and Shiromani Akali Dal, Amritsar, criticised the action against Pannu saying it was an attempt to defame the Sikh community globally.
Meanwhile, no representative of the SFJ visited Akal Takht to perform the ardas before the beginning of online voter registration for ‘Refrendum-2020’, a campaign seeking a separate country for Sikhs. The Punjab Police have blocked 17 web portals so far which were being used for spreading the “anti-India” campaign of the SFJ. BJP leader Vineet Joshi said the people of Punjab had rejected the SFJ as not even a single person had registered for their campaign.
