NEW DELHI—On September 2, the activists of Manjit Singh GK led Jag Aasra Guru Ot (JAGO) staged a peaceful protest against the Akali Dal president Sukhbir Badal’s silence over missing saroops of Sri Guru Granth Sahib in SGPC’s publication department. The protesters expressed their resentment against Sukhbir Badal by staging a strike at Lok Kalyan Metro Station near Tuglak road.
After the recitation of Japji Sahib, all the protesters performed Ardas asking Waheguru to awake Sukhbir Badal’s conscience.
Addressing the gathering on this occasion, Manjit Singh GK said that if Sukhbir Badal doesn’t break his silence within 7 days then they will launch a campaign to surround the residences of Delhi based Akali leaders. “The SAD (Badal) controlled SGPC office bearers are claiming to make a financial recovery against the missing saroops but we want to know where the Almighty Guru Sahib,” he added.
GK said that every detail of this tragic event was in Sukhbir Badal’s knowledge and all this happened with his consent. He apprehended that the missing saroops might be in the custody of non-Sikh cults where no proper code of conduct is followed.
It is pertinent to note here that these protesters had also planned to surround Sukhbir Badal’s residence situated on Safdarjang but the police didn’t permit them to go there.
JAGO’s Delhi State president Chaman Singh, Parminderpal Singh, Harjit Singh GK, Gurwinder Singh Malwia, Bibi Mandeep Kaur Bakhshi, Tarwinder Kaur, Avneet Kaur Bhatia, Harjit Singh etc. were eminent among these protesters.
