Giani Gurmukh Singh today claimed to have received a letter threatening him to stop opposing Sirsa-based Dera Sacha Sauda head and submit an apology.
As per The Tribune Giani Gurmukh Singh said the letter, allegedly written by some dera supporter, was sent to his ancestral home at Arif Ke village in Ferozepur. The anonymous letter mentioned dera head Gurmeet Ram Rahim as ‘Guru ji’.
“The letter was in a sack found near the main door of our ancestral home. The letter had some abusive and threatening terms targeting me. I can make out that it is from Sirsa dera’s side. Its writer advised me that since I have always opposed ‘Guru ji’ , it would be good for me if I apologise, as Akali ‘sarkar’ is out of power,” he said.
He said the matter hao s been reported to DGP Suresh Arora, SGPC chief secretary Harcharan Singh and Amritsar Police Commissioner SS Srivastava.
“They assured me all help. I stood up for Sikh religious tenets. Such threats cannot stop me from performing my duty as a Sikh preacher. I will conduct religious congregations as per ‘maryada’ everywhere. I invite dera supporters to have an open discussion with me on any platform,” he said.
