Press Statement of Simranjit Singh Mann,
President, Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) dated 5th December 2017.
Prayers at the historic Gurudwara at Fatehgarh Sahib to reduce the pain of pulling down the Holy Islamic Mosque the Babri Masjid in 1992 by BJP-RSS in connivance with the Congress Party.
Tomorrow is the anniversary when fanatic Hindu mobs of the BJP-RSS under the leadership of Mr. LK Adwani destroyed the ancient Islamic Mosque- Babri Masjid. In pulling down this ancient Holy relic the Congress Party connived with the BJP-RSS. Narsimha Rao was the Prime Minister when this dastardly act took place as he did not, as per his constitutional duty stop such vandalism. In the Parliamentary system the Cabinet of Ministers headed by the Prime Minister are jointly responsible to the Parliament. Mr. Manmohan Singh as Finance Minister was the senior most Minister in the Narsimha Rao Cabinet. As such he is also responsible for this misdeed. Rajive Gandhi as Prime Minister from 1984 to 1989 had allowed a small Hindu Temple to be built at the Babri Masjid site. Therefore, the fact is that both the Congress party and the BJP-RSS jointly pulled down this old shrine.
Mr. Kalyan Singh was the Chief Minister of UP then and now the BJP-RSS Union Government headed by Premier Narinder Modi has appointed him as the Governor of Rajasthan. The Congress Party has not objected. Therefore both these parties have the same view and are hand in glove on the creation of a Hindu Rashtra.
To project the pain of the Muslim’s and the minorities our party the Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) is organising and performing an Akhand Path in the historic Fatehgarh Sahib Gurudwara complex (Rath Sahib) tomorrow Wednesday at 11 a.m the 6th December 2017. We have issued invitations, irrespective of religion and caste to all to attend the Bhog which will be followed by the Sikh Ardas (Litany). We hope the very Bhog of the Holy Granth Sahib will reduce the pain in the hearts of the Muslim’s and the minorities, schedule castes, schedule tribes and all the people who have no forum to readdress their pain on the march of the Nazi like Hindu Rashtra.
Had the Union Government from the very beginning signed and ratified the UN 1972 Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage and followed it, neither the Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple) at Amritsar nor the Babri Masjid would have been reduced to rubble.
