Sikh body to oppose Hindutva Icon L. K. Advani’s yatra in Punjab

November 13, 2011 | By

Chandigarh/Punjab (November 12, 2011): All India Sikhs Students Federation (AISSF) announced that it will disturb L.K. Advani’s Rath Yatra on November 16th when it will enter Chandigarh because of BJP leaders active role in Indian Government’s military action on Sri Harmandir Sahib in June 1984. AISSF will support SAD (Amritsar) Leader Simranjit Singh Mann’s planned disturbance of Advani’s Yatra in Punjab.

According to Karnail Singh Peermohammad, President AISSF, BJP leader LK Advani in his book “My Country, My Life”, proudly takes credit for having a hand in Indian Government’s military action on Sri Harmandir Sahib in June 1984. The military action on Sri Harmandir Sahib supported by Advani resulted in demolition of Sri Akal Takhat Sahib, death of thousands of Sikh pilgrims in June 1984 and subsequent wave of violence against Sikhs all across India which continued for more than a decade.

It is unfortunate that CM Parkash Singh Badal is planning to welcome Advani’s Yatra who takes pride having hand in military action on Sri Harmandir Sahib and desecration of Sri Akal Takhat Sahib”, AISSF President Peermohammad asked CM Badal to side with the Sikh community and severe all political ties with BJP. We will not allow LK Advani to disrupt communal harmony” because Advani has a history of provoking violence against religious minorities. In 1992, it was Advani’s Rath Yatra which caused the demolition of Babri Masjid and his party BJP is also responsible for 2002 killing of Muslims in Gujarat and 2008 massacre of Christians in Orissa.

Federation Secretary General Davinder Singh Sodhi appealed to the Sikh community to boycott Advani’s Yatra, reminding Sikhs about LK Advani’s role in military action on Sri Harmandir Sahib. Federation Leaders Dr. Karaj Singh Dharamsinghwala, Gurmukh Singh Sandhu, Advocate Parminder Singh Dhingra, Jagroop Singh Cheema and Darshan Singh Gholia appealed to Sikhs, Muslims, Dalits and Christians to come forward and join AISSF’s campaign to disturb Advani’s Rath to protect the communal harmony.
