Amritsar: The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has decided to install portraits of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and other Sikhs who fought against Indian army during attack on Sri Darbar Sahib on June 6 1984, in the basement of Shaheedi Yaadgaar inside Darbar Sahib complex, Amritsar.
The decision was taken at the SGPC executive committee meeting held on Thursday. The meeting was presided by SGPC chief Kirpal Singh Badungar. Talking to the media after the meeting, Badungar said 300 portrait of the Sikhs martyred during theArmy Attack on Sri Darbar Sahib, including Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, General Subegh Singh, Bhai Amreek Singh, Baba Thara Singh and others, would be installed in the memorial.
The committee supported the walkout by SAD from Punjab assembly on the obituary references to former DGP KPS Gill stating his name did not deserve to be included in the list of the persons for the purpose.
The SGPC also passed a resolution to contest cases of nearly 40 members of the Sikligar and Vanjara communities who are lodged in jails in other states.
Most of the population of two was living in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Karnatka and Bihar.
“They are wanderers, poor and uneducated and have nobody to fight for their cause. They have faith in Sikhism and they used to make weapons for the Gurus. False cases were registered against them,” said Badungar.
