KARNAL, Haryana, India—In a case relating to clash between Sikhs and Sacha Sauda cultists, seven Sikhs have been sentenced by the court. Amongst those declared guilty are Baba Baljit Singh Daduwal and Sukhwinder Singh Khalsa (Guru Granth Sahib Satkar Sabha). The decision of the court has been declared as biased by Panthik Jathebandis.
The incident in 2008, which turned violent, involved both sides—but only Sikhs have been investigated, charged, and found guilty. It is important to note that followers of the Sacha Sauda cult had tried to attack Sikhs with acid and other dangerous weapons, escalating the confrontation. Heavy police force had to be deployed to diffuse the violence. The incident first erupted as Sacha Sauda cult members publicly held a gathering of ‘naam charcha’ and mocked Sikh beliefs.
Injustice to the life of Shaheed Harmandir Singh
The latest court ruling has been declared an injustice to the life of Bhai Harmandir Singh who was martyred at Dabwali by the Sacha Sauda cult members. Bhai Harmandir Singh was a local leader of Guru Granth Sahib Satkar Sabha.
At the time of his killing, the Sacha Sauda cult had attacked the Sikhs. The cult was backed by local police in Haryana.
Sikh24 has not been able to reach Baba Baljit Singh Daduwal however we have learned that Bhai Sukhwinder Singh Khalsa is planning to challenge the court verdict. He stated that the court ruling is shameful since it has not declared anyone guilty for the murder of Bhai Harmandir Singh.
