National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) Chairman Vijay Sampla on Monday wrote a letter to acting Jathedar of Akal Takhat Giani Harpreet Singh, and requested him to ensure that Lakhbir Singh’s ‘bhog’ was performed as per the Sikh ‘rehat maryada’.

In the letter, Sampla said, “You must have got the information that some people, especially the members of Satkar committee, objected to the victim’s cremation as per Sikh rituals, citing sacrilege of Sri Guru Granth Sahib.”

Sampla added “we firmly believe that Lakhbir Singh should not be termed guilty until the police investigation proves the same”.

He also said in Punjab border districts, a large number of SC Sikhs had been targeted by missionaries. — TNS
