Nankana Sahib pilgrimage: Joginder Singh Mann flays denial of permission to Sikh jatha

Gurdwara Janam Asthan, Sri Nankana Sahib

Phagwara, February 19

Former Punjab Minister and Chairman of Punjab Agro Industries Corporation Joginder Singh Mann today said the denial of permission to the jatha for Sri Nankana Sahib by Modi Government reflected the “myopic mindset of BJP-led government towards the minorities especially the Sikhs.”

In a statement issued here today, the former minister said it was unfortunate that since Independence, it was probably for the first time that pilgrimage to Sri Nankana Sahib had been stalled. He said this action clearly demonstrated the ‘anti-minority’ stance of the Modi Government. Mann said this action was totally unwarranted and undesirable as pilgrimage to Sri Nankana Sahib was a cherished aspiration of every Sikh.

The Chairman of the Punjab Agro Industries Corporation said this outrageous action of the Modi government had bruised the psyche of every Punjabi in general and Sikhs in particular. — TNS
