Dalit Samaj had shut out Hans Raj Hans: Thandal



The Punjab cabinet Minister and SAD leader Sohan Singh Thandal said in Chandigarh today that   turn-coat Congress leader Hans Raj Hans is a disgrace to the Dalit  Samaj as his conduct has painted an extremely poor picture of the brave and honest Dalit masses in Punjab.

"Dalit Samaj never really owned him, despite his getting the golden opportunity to contest from a Dalit dominated constituency on an SAD-BJP ticket….People in the constituency say that he lost that election mainly because he used the campaign merely to raise funds and never showed any interest in winning the election, despite senior SAD and BJP leaders like Parkash SIngh Badal, Sukhbir Singh Badal and Manoranjan Kataria extensively campaigning for him," said Thandal in a statement here.

 Commenting on Hans Raj Hans'  statement that he would give a call to dalits  to bar the SAD-BJP combine, Mr Thandal said that only an egotist like Hans Raj Hans can indulge in such pathetic  day-dreaming and he is living in fools paradise ."Not a single member of the great Punjabi Dalit Bhaichara trusts him. He lives only for himself and he has never done anything for Dalits in the state. All he is interested in is his own name and fame and money." said Thandal.

Badal dares Cong-Aap to contest SGPC poll to know what Sikhs think of them

Badal dares Cong-Aap to contest SGPC poll to know what Sikhs think of them



The Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal said here today that the Congress and the party of Arvind Kejriwal ganged up to fulfill the age-old dream of the anti-Sikh forces to gain control over the religious affairs of the Sikh community against mandate of the Sikh masses.

"Everyone can now see the desperate scale of interest which these parties have displayed in grabbing control over the most sacred Sikh shrines and to convert the highest seats of authority in Sikh religion into the mouth-pieces of the anti-Sikh forces, exactly as the British had done before the Gurdwara Sudhar Lehar. The Congress-AAP bluff has been called and now they can no longer hide their secret agenda and befool the masses," said Badal in a statement here.
 
The Chief Minister challenged both the Congress and its camp-follower, the Aam Admi Party to display courage to openly seek a mandate from  the Sikh masses by contesting the forthcoming SGPC general elections.

The Chief Minister also said it could not have been a mere coincidence  that the Congress and AAP had identical stands on all other issues too like the SYL, Punjabi speaking areas left out of the state, release of Sikh prisoners, drugs, and non-interference in the religious affairs of all communities, especially the minorities.

Reacting to the passage of the Sikh Gurdwara (Amendment) Bill in the Lok Sabha today, Badal welcomed the development as 'historic' and thanked all those who supported the Sikh cause. "This has undone a historic distortion in the Sikh religious affairs and in the management of the Sikh shrines. This will remove all unnecessary confusion on the issue."
"The Congress had always hatched conspiracies to  dilute or destroy established Sikh institutions gained through countless sacrifices by Sikh masses and  by leaders of the stature of Baba Kharak SIngh and Master Tara Singh. Now, the AAP has joined it to strengthen anti-Sikh elements,” said the Chief Minister.

Badal said that the SAD’s  insistence on the management of Sikh shrines only by the ideologically  pure and those perfect in understanding and implementing this purity  of religious practices is purely for the purpose of management of Sikh  religious affairs as per Sikh norms. "Other than this, the Sikh Gurus, the Gurbani and Sikh religious beliefs preach no distinction between people professing different faiths. Everyone, regardless of his religious beliefs, is welcome  in any Sikh Gurdwara which traditionally has four doors. Guru Granth Sahib contains verses from saints, seers and other enlightened souls from different sects and communities, and different walks of life., and their bani has been accorded the status of the Guru. That is why when we bow our heads before Guru Granth Sahib, we bow before all the saints and seers and prophets from different communities. The Foundation Stone of Sri Harmandar Sahib was laid by Sain Mian Meer, a Muslim. The issue of purity in thought and practice is a matter that pertains to the maintenance of purity in our religious places. For all other purposes, the Gurus taught us to love and respect every human being, regardless of his religion or beliefs as equal.”

The Chief Minister  asked the Cong-Aam Admi Party  gang-up to stop trying to create fissures in society in general and in the Sikh masses in particular, or they would have to face the wrath of the Sikh masses, already simmering since the army assault on the holiest of the holy shrines, Sri Harmandar Sahib in June 1984.  "The Congress and the
AAP may pretend to speak against each other in a prep-planned strategy, but secretly they are working on a common unholy  agenda to gain power and misuse it to dilute and destroy the purity of Sikh religious thought and practices. The Sikh masses will never allow this" he said.

Muktsar: Woman dragged from office, Kidnapped in broad daylight and Raped



In a shocking incident, a 24-year-old woman was abducted from her place of work in Punjab's Muktsar on March 25, by a man who is seen on CCTV footage dragging her in broad daylight across a street lined with shops, as she struggled trying to break free and shouted for help.
 
According to a NDTV report, vehicles drove past, but no one tried to help the woman, who has told the police that her abductor, clearly seen on video, raped her at a farmhouse, before releasing her next day.
 
The police registered a first information report or FIR only five days after the incident, and are yet to make an arrest in the case almost a month later.
 
On the video, recorded by a CCTV camera (Watch video) on a shop nearby, we see the woman's colleagues run out later.
 Police say the man is from same village as the woman and knew her.

The man seen dragging the woman out of her office at a computer centre and on the street for nearly a hundred meters is absconding along with an alleged accomplice, the police have said.
 
The young Dalit woman and her father have met the National Commission for Scheduled Castes, which has summoned a top police officer from Muktsar to explain the delay in apprehending the accused.

Latest:The Muktsar police on Friday night arrested Gurinder alias Jojo, in connection with the abduction and rape.
