In a statement issued here today, Giani Gurbachan Singh said that these organizations should take concrete measures to ensure the release of Sikh political prisoners languishing in various jails despite completion of their prison terms as well as termination of section 25 (2) (b) of the Indian constitution which held Sikhs as a part of Hinduism. He explained that Sikhs had submitted lists of Sikh prisoners who deserve release to governments numerous times and the latter had made assurances but it has not taken any step in this direction. He concerned that any delay in taking action would be harmful. He said if the issue would not be resolved soon, it would be discussed in meeting of Panj Singh Sahiban slated for Jan 2.
Tandon voices concern Tribune News Service Chandigarh, May 6 A member of the BJP core committee and former minister Balramji Dass Tandon today said a small section of radicals should not be allowed to play with the hard-earned peace in the state. Referring to developments related to Bluestar Memorial, he said the SAD and the SGPC should take a clear stand against the memorial being dedicated to militants. He said the memorial should have been a tribute to the more than 20,000 innocent persons who were either killed by terrorists and or who went down fighting for the countrys unity and integrity. Tandon said no space should be given to radical elements to dictate terms to political and religious leaders in the state. Appealing to the Akal Takht chief, Tandon said the issue should be resolved immediately to maintain communal harmony and peace in the state.
