Amritsar, November 3
The Guru Granth Sahib Satkar Committee members, who had launched crusade against the SGPC for missing ‘saroops’, on Tuesday assembled at the Akal Takht.
After performing ardas, Sikh activist Sukhjit Singh Khosa told that it was a wrong perception that the protest that went on for over 10 days before being disrupted following a group clash was annulled. He said that the five Sikhs from their side daily come to pay obeisance at the Golden Temple and perform ardas to get justice in missing saroops.
“The SGPC task force tried to scuttle our protest by indulging in clash but I wanted to clarify that the Sikh activists were still adamant to confront the SGPC over the whereabouts of missing saroops. Some of our members were admitted in the hospital, but our mission to expose the SGPC’s failed administration will continue”, he said. On October 24, a clash took place in the precincts of Golden Temple complex following which cross-FIRs were registered.
Khosa told that at least 60 Sikh activists were booked under serious charges which were far from truth. “I too was booked along with other Sikhs who were attacked by the SGPC task force and were detained for hours. Till date, the police too were lenient and never bothered to get our statements registered”, he said.
When asked about a video clip that went viral depicting him to be in an inebriated condition while roaming in the Golden Temple complex, he said, “I am ready to undergo dope test in the presence of ‘panj pyaras’, Granthi Singhs or intellectuals”, he said.
