PATIALA INCIDENT: Sikhs being targeted under politics of polarization, says Akal Takht

After Punjab Police launched crackdown on the Sikh youths following the incident took place at Patiala over the issue of ‘Khalistan’, office of the Akal Takht Sahib has stated the Sikhs were once again being targeted by the government just to play politics of polarizing votes a particular community.

Taking serious note of the crackdown and a Sikh preacher Barjinder Singh Parwana being projected as “Mastermind” and “key conspirator” by the Punjab Police for opposing Hindu fanatic elements’ act of inciting feelings of the Sikh community, it has called a meeting of Panthic organizations to counter atrocities initiated by the Police under AAP regime against the Sikh activists.

In the invitations sent to various organizations, Takht acting jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh’s personal secretary Jaspal Singh said, “The media is presenting the clashes at Patiala as the violence between Sikhs and Hindus under a conspiracy. Sikh youths and their families are being targeted and arrested despite having no guilt. If such thing happens repeatedly, it will be the indication of bringing the circumstances that were witnessed by Punjab in 80s and 90s, back to again victimize the Sikhs”.

“To hold discussion over the issue, the meeting has been called at Akal Takht Sahib”, he added.

Notably, the highest Sikh temporal seat has called this meeting on request of various Sikh bodies including Alliance of Sikh Organizations.
