GK REQUESTS PM MODI TO GRANT AID FOR COMMUNITY INSITUTIONS IN IRAN

New Delhi ,  Thursday 19th of May, 2016  

The president of Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee, Manjit Singh GK has written a brief letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of his visit to Islamic nation in coming days. “Sikhs in particular have strong cultural and emotional bonds with Iran as Guru Nanak Dev ji visited this land during the course of his journey to the Holy Mecca. Guru Sahib interacted closely with saints and seers from Iran” said Manjit Singh GK. Two Gurudwara Sahibs are located in Iran , one each at Tehran and Zahedan. Further to this, an Indian School was established and owned by the community there and still operational and now being managed by Kendriya Vidyalaya Sanghthan.

Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikh Religion visited Iran during his tour to west Asia and this is a matter of great importance for Sikhs living across the globe. In order to authentic the fact, Manjit Singh GK requested the Prime Minister that a joint committee may be formed by Government of India along with Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee and the Government of Islamic Republic of Iran may be requested to facilitate the research and provide cooperation in this regard and Iran may become home to an important pilgrimage site for Sikhs.

           There has been a decrease in demographics of the Indian Community in Iran due to various factors including local and global issues. The community there faces certain issues and Manjit Singh GK asked the Prime Minister to consider the same and take up with his Iranian counterparts during the visit. These issues include Revival and Recognition of Guru Nanak Charitable Trust in Iran, Issuance of Business / Commercial Permits and Residence Permits to Indians, Property Rights and estate taxation for Indians, Waiver of Military Services for Iranian Nationals of Indian origin and Registration of marriages of Sikhs holding Iranian Nationality. “The Indian Community in Iran mostly comprising of Sikhs has always stood and contributed towards the growth of their motherland India and are representing as goodwill ambassadors there and upon examining these issues and concerns, therefore it was decided to take up at highest level with Government of India” said GK.

                 During the visit to Iran Prime Minister is likely to interact with the community and visit the Tehran Gurdwara and Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee requested Narendra Modi to consider and grant financial aid for maintenance and smooth functioning of the two Gurdwara Sahibs and the cremation ground located in Iran by setting up of fund under the aegis of Indian Mission there. As Bhai Ganga Singh Sabha Tehran, (Gurdwara Sahib) has been home to thousands of stranded Indians during the turbulent times of war in the region and has swiftly acted and supports each and every Indian national in distress.

          Manjit Singh GK also asked the Prime Minister to convey the best wishes of the Sikhs and to their Iranian brethren, especially in the light of congenial atmosphere for the Sikhs in Iran. "It is a matter of great satisfaction that members of the Sikh community settled in Iran have excellent relations with the local populace and are warmly satisfied with the respect and affection they enjoy from their Iranian brothers and sisters," he concluded.

DSGMC President :Seeking Apology from Prime Modi For 1984 Genocide


 New Delhi / 18 May 2016 
 In a letter sent to Narendra Modi Prime Minister of India the President of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Manjit Singh G.K. had suggested him to seek apology for 1984 genocide in which thousands of innocent Sikhs were killed mercilessly. The wounds of the genocide are still oozing 32 years after the aghast massacre because families of the victims are waiting for justice.



27 million Sikhs living across the nations are looking towards Government of India for delivery of justice to these families. The fight of Sikhs for justice is unending. Despite the colossal massacre only a few cases were registered against the perpetrators of genocide that too with the intervention of 11 commissions and committees that investigated the genocide from time-to-time, G.K. wrote in letter.  



He said days of massacre are the black days in the history of modern India and so far no effort have been made by the Indian Government to give solace to the Sikh population for the gross injustice done to them and Congress Party which is responsible for perpetrating Sikh genocide has been running the Indian government for most of the 32 years after the genocide. It made all efforts to scuttle the system of giving justice and Sikhs have no hope from them.



DSGMC President said that when BJP government has taken over under the able command of Narendra Modi Sikhs keeps a hope that justice delivery is expedited. G.K. also said that on behalf of the Sikh diaspora he seek from you to offer apology to them as a step towards realising and sharing pain Sikhs are passing through and it would give them a solace and help them heal the wounds even if courts of law take time to pronounce judgments. 

He referred to the world leaders seeking apology form a section for the wrong done to the population. G.K. also suggest that seeking apology will be a step in right direction by a Government elected by the people, represent them and work for their well being.

Historical Moment :A Sikh Being Honoured In Church By The Archbishop


History was made in the Catholic Church on 22nd April 2012, at Metropolitan Cathedral and Basilica of St. Chad, Birmingham, during a special Mass and Investiture, when Bhai Sahib Bhai Dr. Mohinder Singh Ahluwalia was honored , as Knights of the Pontifical Order of Pope St. Gregory the Great.
The Most Reverend Bernard Longley, Archbishop of Birmingham, invested the internationally known and respected Spiritual Leader and Chairman of GNNSJ, based in the Handsworth area of Birmingham, with one of the Highest Papal Awards.


Bhai Sahib Bhai Dr. Mohinder Singh Ahluwalia, from Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha (GNNSJ), Birmingham was awarded a knighthood from the Roman Catholic Church for his outstanding & dedicated work in world religions, inter-faith diversity; for promoting greater harmony and rapport between Roman Catholic & Sikh relations; and for his enthusiastic commitment to working for peace among people of all faiths.
The Order of St. Gregory is normally bestowed on Catholics but in rare cases it is also conferred on non-Catholics in recognition of meritorious service to the Catholic Church and the exceptional example they have set in their communities and country.
More than 120 Sikhs, from Birmingham, London and Leeds; and some who had flown from Kenya and India were present in St. Chad’s Cathedral for this unique and ground-breaking event in inter-faith relations involving the Catholic Church and the Sikh faith.

DSGMC Demand : Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh should also be summoned to the Akal Takht to seek his explanation on tytler.

 Decision on Tytler seeking appointment from Akal Takht Jathedar taken after taking all panthic organisations into confidence, DSGMC President

 New Delhi / 6 May 2016 Under the leadership of President of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Manjit Singh G.K. a delegation today met Shri Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh in Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib in connection with appointment sought by Congress leader Jagdish Tytler to meet the Jathedar.

Manjit Singh G.K. informed Jathedar about his role as a perpetrator in 1984 Sikh genocide and a trial going on against him in the court of law. After meeting Jathedar DSGMC President told journalists that Tytler is seeking appointment from Akal Takht Jathedar to clarify his role in the 1984 genocide. G.K. said it seems to be a ploy of Tytler to seek support of Sikhs in the elections of Punjab Vidhan Sabha scheduled in 2017 or an attempt to save his political masters from the embarrassment caused by him due to his name cropping up in the genocide from time to time.

 In the meeting G.K. praised the legal department of DSGMC which has contested the cases against Tytler and other Congress leaders behind the genocide in best possible manner because when the case is being dealt properly the court of law has taken tough stand against Tytler during the last hearing after the facts came to light that he alongwith Abhishek Verma an arms dealer was trying to influence the witnesses in the case against him.

“It raises many questions that former Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh named Tytler as innocent after which it came to light that Tytler has planned to seek forgiveness”, G.K. told journalists. “Incase Tytler has realised that he had done wrong with Sikhs for which he was seeking forgiveness than the role of Amarinder is doubtful. He demanded that Amarinder should also be summoned to the Akal Takht to seek his explanation on the matter.

DSGMC president who is also president of Akali Dal in Delhi said that during 1984 genocide not only innocent Sikhs were killed but disrespect was shown to Shri Guru Granth Sahib, which has hurt the Sikh sentiments.  

G.K. raised apprehension that incase Tytler gets permission to meet Akal Takht Jathedar it will lead to a mass reaction from Sikhs living across the globe and will also lower the prestige of the Takht. G.K. appealed to Jathedar that any decision on the matter be taken given after taking the entire Sikh panth and panthic organization into confidence. He requested Jathedar that Tytler be asked to speak out names of the Congress leaders who were involved with him in the genocide.

Replying to a question that it has come to light that previous management of the DSGMC which offered siropa to Tytler was trying to arrange a meeting between Akal Takht Jathedar and Jagdish Tytler, G.K. said that all those who offered siropa to Tytler are answerable to Sikh panth and fingers are raised on them.

Akal Takht Jathedar told journalists that he so far has not received any letter from Tytler and incase he get one he will take it to the all five head priests for final decision because on one side Tytler is an accused of genocide and on other side he is facing trial in the court.

Avtar Singh Hit Former President of DSGMC, Mahinder Pal Singh Chadha Senior Vice President of committee, Amarjeet Singh Pappu Joint Secretary, and Gurmeet Singh Meeta, Harvinder Singh K.P.,  Harjinder Singh, Jeet Singh, Gurmeet Singh Lubana and Paramjit Singh Chandok all members, Jaswinder Singh Jolly head legal cell and Parminder Pal Singh spokesman were also present.

DSGMC Protested Delhi Government's Decision to Introduce Bussiness Courses in Place of A Regional Languages in Schools

By replacing regional languages with business course in schools Delhi government plans to cut ties with culture, traditions


 New Delhi / 4 May, 2016   

The President of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Manjit Singh G.K. today said that the decision of the Delhi government to introduce business course as a sixth subject in class 9th in place of a regional language is well designed plan to break students of the families belonging to different cultural and traditional ethos form the roots which would directly lead to drifting from their religion.

Manjit Singh G.K. also president of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) in Delhi alongwith former MLA Harmeet Singh Kalka who is chairman of school education committee of DSGMC while addressing a press conference told the media persons that with the implementation of new decision of 5 April 2016 by which the education department replaced regional languages Punjabi, Sanskrit and Urdu languages with business course the students will lose the chance to learn their mother tongue and teachers teaching these language in all probability will lose their jobs in near future.


DSGMC president said that Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has snatched the very basic right of the students to learn their mother tongue and remain connected to their religion. The orders have strangulated education system making it redundant.


“It is a blatant violation of the education act 1968 and 1986 and by linking business subject with CGPA the regional languages had been shown the exit door,” said Manjit Singh G.K. According to him the decision has also taken away the opportunity from the students of class 9th and 10th to earn good CGPA which in the past they used to do by scoring good marks in the regional languages which happens to be their mother tongue and it also used to help them get admissions in good colleges for further studies. Now no student would like to be burdened by regional language as seventh optional subject, G.K. apprehended.



The decision of Delhi government has cut the umbilical cord of the people of Delhi who used to stay connected to their traditions, culture and ethos by studying regional language. The decision would also act adversely for the large number of students aspiring to take civil services examination by preparing in regional languages.


G.K.asked Kejriwal to learn from nations like Israel and China who stay connected to their language and culture and have emerged as strong nations. Without religion and culture a person has no identity and the decision has come as a big blow for the people belonging to different ethnicity and culture. DSGMC threatened to launch a stir in case the Delhi government failed to reverse its order.



DSGMC President questioned that in the absence of knowledge of Punjabi, Urdu and Sanskrit how would young generation learn to recite their religious scriptures. He also raised questions on silence maintained by Sikh and Muslim MLAs on the matter.



On the occasion Mahinder Pal Singh Chadha senior vice president of DSGMC, Amarjeet Singh Pappu Joint secretary and Harvinder Singh K.P., Capt. Inderpreet Singh, Gurvinder pal Singh, Ravel Singh, Jeet Singh, Harjinder Singh all Members of DSGMC and Vikram Singh and Gurdeep Singh both Akali leaders were also present.

DSGMC President Slammed Jagdish Tytler's Claim

Tytler saying he saved Sikhs during 1984 Sikh genocide is like mocking at corpses of dead innocent Sikhs butchered in genocide, DSGMC President

New Delhi / 27 – 04 – 2016 The president of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Manjit Singh G.K. today slammed Congress leader Jagdish Tytler over his remarks that he saved Sikhs during the 1984 Sikhs genocide in which thousands of innocent Sikhs were done to death in a most merciless manner. Manjit Singh G.K. asked Tytler to be ashamed of his claim, as he is one of the main perpetrators of the genocide who unleashed armed and unruly mobs on innocent and hapless Sikhs for no fault of theirs, just after the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

            “The disgraced leader is now hiding his cruel and criminal acts by saying that he saved Sikhs whereas he actually got them killed”, G.K. said. Two days back Tytler wrote a letter to Shiromami Akali Dal MP in Lok Sabha and Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal telling her that he saved hundreds of Sikhs families during the genocide. “The claims by Tytler of having saved Sikhs are like rubbing salt into their wounds and mocking shamelessly at the corpses of innocent dead Sikhs”, said G.K.


            DSGMC President also said that the Congress is not shameful of its act and is unapologetic, but is hiding its crime by making such ploys. Manjit Singh G.K. said that everyone in Delhi who lived during the days of genocide knows that Congress leaders Sajjan Kumar, HKL Bhagat, Dharam Das Shashtri and Tytler and were charging the mobs to target innocent Sikhs at the behest of their then political master Rajiv Gandhi.

            “For being shielded by the Congress party none of these leaders have been punished by the court of law and the families of those Sikhs butchered in the genocide are waiting for justice even after 32 years of the mass crime”, G.K. said vehemently.  He also said that only a few FIRs have been registered after reports of 11 commissions and committees constituted from time to time to probe Sikh genocide because top Congress leaders Rajiv Gandhi and Arun Nehru were the master minds.
