CHANDIGARH: Three pro-Freedom groups namely Dal khalsa, United Akali Dal and SAD ( Amritsar) today held a gathering to deliberate on continued loot of river waters, resurfacing of SYL row, pardoning four police convicts by state Govt, refusing to release Sikh detenus who have completed life sentence , making UAP Act 1967 more draconian, giving unbridled powers to NIA, derailing Bargarhi Sacrilege case and infringement of states rights by the Centre. The meeting decided to protest on India’s Independence Day against injustices, discriminations and suppression of fundamental rights.

We will stage a protest on Aug 15 as all these injustices and atrocities are heaped on Sikhs through Indian laws, parliament and Govt’s. New Delhi is killing ours aspirations to strengthen  Indian stranglehold  on  Sikhs. We have decided to resist all such attempts, said KANWAR Pal Singh, who addressed Press meet on behalf of three parties. Akali Dal Amritsar Head  SS Mann and Dal Khalsa head Harpal Singh Cheema were also present.

Govt’s both at Centre and state level are least bothered about hurt feelings of Sikhs. They don’t want to unmask Sacrilege conspirators. CBI and SIT both organs of the state are producing conflicting and confusing results. Panth never trusted CBI, Badal’s pass on the probe to CBI to save their skin. At the end of the day, Justice eluded the Sikhs, said he.

The meeting today gave a clarion call to the people of the state to observe August 15 as black day and stay away from celebrations.

To mark their protest, the members of three organizations have decided to stage protest march on India’s 72nd Independence Day. To convey their message, they would carry black flags and placards in their hands.
 
A grave injustice is being done to Punjab by the successive union governments’, said Kanwar Pal Singh. Gurdeep Singh Bhatinda, Adv B S Sodhi, Prof Mohinder Pal Singh. SFS member Harman , Adv Rajwinder Singh Bains, SYP president Paramjit Singh Mand, representatives of BSP, BHaujan Mukti Party also spoke.
