Amritsar (April 02, 2010): The Khalsa Action Committee today demanded a stern action against Joginder Singh chief editor of the vernacular paper published from Mohali for hurting the religious sentiments of the Sikhs through its editorial.
In a statement KAC chairman Mohkam Singh, Kanwarpal Singh and Narain Singh said the editor has committed a sacrilege by raising doubts about the authenticity of Guru Granth Sahib. Urging the Punjab government to initiate legal action against the editor to soothe the hurt feelings of the Sikhs, they said he (Joginder Singh) must be arrested under section 295-A of the IPC.
They alleged that from day one the editor has indulged in yellow journalism. His derogratory writings against the established beliefs, institutions of historical significance and rich traditions has given immense pain to devout Sikhs, they alleged.
It is pertinent to mention that Joginder Singh has been excommunicated from the Sikh Panth by Five Takht Jathedars few years back for his blasphemous writings.
In a communique to the Press Council of India the leaders urged the concerned authority to take suitable action against the editor for voilating the norms and ethics of journalism under the garb of ‘right to expression’.
