After 27 years, portrait of Bhai Dilawar Singh to be put up in Darbar Sahib’s Central Sikh Museum

AMRITSAR: The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has finally decided to meet long pending demand of the Sikh Panth to install portrait of Bhai Dilawar Singh, who sacrificed his life to eliminate cruel Chief Minister of Punjab Beant Singh in 1995, in Central Sikh Museum in complex of Sachkhand Sri Harmandar Sahib which is also known as Sri Darbar Sahib.

The SGPC is putting up the portrait during a brief function to be organized on June 14 in presence of its president Harjinder Singh Dhami and other Sikh personalities, as per the report published by Daily Ajit (Punjab). Apart from this, portrait of Giani Bhagwan Singh, former head granthi of Akal Takht Sahib, will also be displayed.

In 2017, the Akal Takht Sahib conferred the title of “Qaumi Shaheed” (National martyr) upon Bhai Dilawar Singh. Despite the demands being raised, the SGPC was not ready to put up his portrait. However, it has now accepted this demand. The Sikh organizations have hailed this move.

Shaheed Bhai Dilawar Singh had put an end to the human right abuses against Sikhs in Punjab by punishing the former Punjab CM Beant “Singh” on August 31, 1995. During the tenure of Beant Singh, the Police was given full authority by the Punjab government to massacre innocent Sikh youths. Extra-judicial killings in fake encounters and enforced disappearances had become common during the tenure of CM Beant Singh.
