Chandigarh: Shiromani Akali Dal President Sukhbir Singh Badal on Monday strongly condemned the two incidents of sacrilege of Sri Guru Grant Sahib ji in Fatehgarh Sahib district and demanded exemplary punishment for those guilty of this heinous crime.
In a statement released on Monday, the SAD President said, it was shocking that incidents of sacrilege of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji were continuing unabated and that two such ghastly incidents had occurred in village Takhan Majra and Jalla villages of the Fatehgarh Sahib. He said, though the one guilty of perpetrating this crime had been nabbed on the spot, others involved should also be traced without any delay and handed exemplary punishments.
Badal also castigated the Congress Government for failing to act against earlier acts of sacrilege including the one involving the 100 year old Swaroop which had gone missing from a gurdwara in Patiala district. He further said, had the Congress Government taken decisive action in that case and traced the culprits, such incidents of sacrilege would not have occurred in the neighbouring district of Fatehgarh Sahib.
