Dal Khalsa secretary for political affairs Kanwarpal Singh recalled the statement made by Suu Kyi while delivering lecture in New Delhi had thather people felt abandoned by India during her hard days.
The organization lauded political maturity and soberness she exhibited during her five day visit to India. “We would be urging the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee to invite her to visit Golden Temple whenever she visits the country next time”, Kanwar Pal said adding after Nelson Mandela, it was Suu Kyi, who is "an inspiration for all who believe in freedom of speech, democracy, liberty and respect for human rights".
Calling Suu Kyi "a global symbol of moral courage", he said she had always been an inspiring figure for all those who believe in non-violent struggle.
Expressing his deep concern over the killings of Muslim Rohingyas in Burma, he urged Suu Kyi not to remain silent, rather exert her influence on Myanmar junta to deliver justice to aggrieved community.
