AMRITSAR: Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has decided to file a review petition following the Supreme Court judgment today in the case regarding challenge to validity of Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (HSGMC) Act, 2014. The opinion of senior lawyers will be taken in this regard and the legal action is required accordingly.

This decision was taken in the SGPC executive committee meeting which was held underthepresidentship o Advocate Harjinder Singh Dhami here today

Talking to the newsmen after the meeting, SGPC President Advocate Harjinder Singh Dhami said that a consensus has been reached to file a review petition in the case of validity to HSGMC Act, 2014, by the Supreme Court, for which, the officials of SGPC have been deputed at Delhi.

Advocate Dhammi said that it is not right to comment on the Supreme Court’s judgment, but the move played by the then Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda to form a separate Gurdwara management committee for Haryana is dividing the Sikh power.

“Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda is a part of Congress class that massacred Sikhs, but it is sad that the incumbent BJP Government also followed the same footsteps and became partners in breaking the foremost representative institution of Sikhs. The politics of breaking up SGPC and dividing Sikh power is not right and the governments should not interfere in Sikh issues”, said SGPC President Harjinder Singh Dhami.
