CHANDIGARH, Punjab—Expressing concern over the rising oppression of minorities in India, the SGPC appointed Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh has said that the BJP led Indian government was using every tactic of eradicating minorities from the Indian sub-continent just like what Mughals did long ago.
Recalling the downfall of the Mughal empire, Giani Harpreet Singh said that the Mughals did everything to eradicate minorities from the Indian sub-continent but now those minorities are in majority here.
“On one hand, the Sikhs are being subjected to excesses, and on the other hand, the Indian government has launched policies to expel minorities from India,” he said while addressing a gathering at Keeratpur Sahib today.
Giani Harpreet Singh has said that although the Indian government is not saying anything to anyone, but behind the scene, it is working to oppress the minorities. He added that the Indian government has crossed all its limits and now schedule caste people will be its next target.
Giani Harpreet Singh further said that the religious shrines of Sikhs are also in danger. He cited incidents of the demolition of Sikh shrines in other states of India.
Pointing towards BJP’s victory in India, Giani Harpreet Singh said that fundamentalism can help someone in gaining power but it doesn’t last forever.
