Amritsar, November 26. Condemning the “attack on Sikhs by followers of Dera Sacha Sauda in Sirsa”, SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar today said the Haryana Government should investigate the incident in an impartial manner.
In a statement, Makkar said: “The targeting of peacefully protesting Sikhs by mischievous elements can’t be termed legitimate in any way”.
He said there was a widespread resentment in the community against the incident, which he dubbed, as the outcome of “negligence of the Sirsa administration and the one-sided mindset of the Haryana Government”.
He alleged that the Haryana Government was not sincere in its effort to “bridle such activities of the dera followers”.
He said this was not the first incident of its kind.
The Dal Khalsa said: “The hooliganism by the dera followers is a matter of grave concern.”
