DSGMC : Comments Against Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Martyrdom Commemorative Function Unwanted

New Delhi / 5 July 2016 – 
The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) today termed the comments made by some people on the programme organised by Punjab government in New Delhi on 3rd July to commemorate tercentenary of martyrdom day of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi took part as inappropriate and unwanted. DSGMC and Shiromani Akali Dal spokesman Parminder Pal Singh suggested opponents to praise the good work.

He said that attending of tercentenary function by PM Modi is a welcome step but some people with petty thinking are criticising it and have even appealed to the people to boycott it. Despite a boycott people in large number came to take part in the function, he said.“The appeal to boycott the function was rejected and the people who gave the call are frustrated now, and to cover up their failure they now are now making false and wrongful allegations of opposing Sikh ideology in the function”, said Parminder Pal Singh. He questioned that those who got installed statue of Mater Tara Singh outside Gurdwara Rakabganj Sahib on 8 January 2003 by BJP leaders, how can they now say that installing a statue is as per ideology of RSS.

 The rise of Sikhs in the government circles due to the efforts of DSGMC is not digested by the opponents, said Parminder Pal Singh. “In the commemorative function Prime Minister, finance minister, home minister, information and broadcasting minister, human resource development, food processing minister and telecommunication minister were present and this shows importance of Sikhs and DSGMC for the Union government”, he said.He reminded the opponents that during inauguration of Guru Tegh Bahadur Memorial at Singhu border on 29 July 2011 in a government function in which President DSGMC of those days Paramjit Singh Sarna was not allowed to sit on the dais with congress leader Rahul Gandhi. He adds that in the commemorative function of 3rd July present President of DGSMC Manjit Singh G.K. played key role in the function and in an impressive manner he managed the proceedings on the stage.

He added during term of Previous President of DSGMC, then PM Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh despite being a Sikh kept himself away from a function organised by DSGMC, despite the fact that Previous committee freely distributed  Siropas to the Congress leaders. He suggested the opponents that they should leave aside the divisive methods and support DSGMC in positive works.
