Press Statement of Simranjit Singh Mānn, President, Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar), Quilla S. Harnam Singh,District Fatehgarh Sahib,Pin 140406,Punjab.

Why has Union BJP- RSS Government stopped the Sikh pilgrimage to Nankana Sahib in Islamic Pakistan?

Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that the Sikh’s since the birth of their religion in the 15th century have been an Independent religion and nationality. Guru Nanak Sahib ordained that the Sikh’s are neither Hindu’s nor Muslims.
It is a quirk of fate that the British in 1947 created a Hindu majority state of India and a Muslim state of Islamic Pakistan. The Sikh’s the third claimants to a separate sovereign state were left high and dry. Their Homeland the Punjab was split in two and in the Punjab they were ethnically cleansed in the part that now forms the Pakistan bit. The Sikh’s since then have struggled to find their separate identity and territory under the sun.
Since the Sikh’s are observing the centenary of the Saka Nankana Sahib where a large number of Sikh’s were massacred in cold blood by the Hindu custodian of this sacred religious shrine a Hindu Mahant (Abbot) named Naranjandas was the villain in this grave tragedy.
However, it is unfortunate that the Hindu Indian state in the grip of the extremist BJP- RSS Union Government of Premier Nerandra Modi has put a stop to this pilgrimage. The reason his Government has given is that because of Covid 19 epidemic and supposed physical danger to the Sikh pilgrims, the Hindu Indian state has stopped this important event on the Sikh religious calendar and disallowed the Sikh pilgrims in leaving for Islamic Pakistan. This is a direct interference in the affairs of the Sikh religion by the majoritarian Hindu Indian state, which no Sikh is willing to accept.
As already scripted the Sikh’s are neither Hindu nor Muslims, our Party feels that this is a very unreasonable diktat of the BJP- RSS state. As far as physical danger is concerned, the Sikh’s from the very birth of their religion have faced danger from the Mughal, Afghan and British regimes and since 1947 from the Hindu Indian regime which has committed the genocide of the Sikh’s. This genocide has been recorded in quite a number of State Legislatures of the United States. This is the main reason that the Sikh’s want an independent and sovereign state of their own which will be a buffer between three inimical nuclear armed states of Hindu Indian, Islamic Pakistan and Communist China.
Our Party is sending out our grouse of curbing our religious freedom, expression and right to travel to places of Sikh pilgrimages to United States Commission on International Religious Freedom , Amnesty International, UN Human Rights Commission, Asia Watch, European Commission of Human Rights Strasburg, National Human Rights Commission in Delhi, International Criminal Court at The Hague, SGPC Amritsar, DGPC Delhi, the International Non- governmental Organizations :

Our Party would once again request the Hindu Indian Union Government of the BJP- RSS led by Premier Nerandra Modi to allow this pilgrimage of Sikh’s to Islamic Pakistan as we do not appreciate curbs on our Sikh religious freedom.
Facta non Verba.
Mutare Sperno.
