Akal Takht Jathedar should have urged Sikhs to boycott funeral of Swaran Ghotna: Sikh Federation UK

London, United Kingdom (February 23, 2013): The Sikh Federation UK has expressed it’s opinion that Giani Gurbachan Singh, Jathedar of Sri Akal Takhat should have asked Sikhs not to attend last rites of an infamous Punjab cop who reportedly died on February 16, 2013.

“It has been reported that Swaran Ghotna, the police officer who tortured and murdered the former Jathedar of the Akal Takht Gurdev Singh Kaunke by tearing him in half has perished”, reads a statement by the UK based Sikh body.

Given the heinous crimes ordered and committed by Swaran Ghotna on hundreds if not thousands of young Sikhs the Sikh Federation (UK) in a statement has said the current Jathedar of the Akal Takht should have issued a strongly worded statement and urged Sikhs to boycott his funeral in protest at his actions for which he was never brought to account.

The Sikh Federation (UK) statement also said the Jathedar of the Akal Takht and SGPC should also have raised the issue of the Indian army assault on the Darbar Sahib Complex in June 1984, the Genocide of Sikhs in November 1984 and the cases of Professor Davinderpal Singh Bhullar and Balwant Singh Rajoana with the British Prime Minister, David Cameron when he visited the Darbar Sahib Complex.

Gurjeet Singh the National Press Secretary of the Sikh Federation (UK) in a written statement said: ‘It had already been reported in leading Punjabi and English newspapers in Punjab leading up to the visit that these issues had been raised by Sikhs with the British Prime Minister. This was the first visit by a serving British Prime Minister so these opportunities rarely present themselves, but those advising the Jathedar of the Akal Takht and SGPC must live on another planet or demonstrate they are unable to take up issues with visiting foreign dignitaries where Indian Government criticism is absolutely necessary.’

Instead the SGPC press release and what has been reported in the media is that the only issue they requested the assistance of the British Prime Minister was in resolving the Dastaar issue in France. Anyone that understands the issue and British French relations will understand even if assistance was requested, as soon this was publicly reported it undermined anything the UK Government could do behind the scenes to assist Sikhs in France.

Gurjeet Singh the National Press Secretary of the Sikh Federation (UK) said: ‘The Jathedar of the Akal Takht must improve the advice he receives and be alert to issues that concern Sikhs and issue statements when expected by the Sikh masses around the globe.’

That was sp or probably ssp Ajit. I heard on some forum that suicide is more like a lie coverup because court was soon going to nab him on legal grounds. Dsp rank is lower than sp/ssp and they are the worst. phoola was also given the dsp rank.

Yes, that was Ajit Sandhu who many believe faked his suicide and is actually living in Canada.

Regarding why the Akal Takhat Jathedar didn't say anything about Swaran Ghotna, that is very clear: it is because he is scared of Badal. Badal's government has been protecting Ghotna since 1997, before that he promised the Panth that he would get justice for the shaheedi of Singh Sahib Bhai Gurdev Singh Ji Kaunke. But, being true to the treacherous, dirty blood that runs through his veins, he went back on his promise as soon as he got into power. In fact, one of Badal's ministers (Sarwan Singh Fillaur) actually went to Ghotna's cremation.

Swaran Ghotna killed and tortured thousands of young Sikhs during his campaign of terror. It is a shame that while he was alive Sikhs couldn't have got him into the dock. But, that is what happens when you trust a traitor like Badal. All we can say now is: may his soul rot in hell.

Oh yes, Ajit Sandhu, I confused him with Ghotna. I heard that his death was faked too, some say he is currently living in Canada or the US. Another theory is that he was killed by KPS Gill who had him run over by a train to make it look like a suicide. At the time his wife(Ajit's) was saying that he could not have committed suicide, so that is probably what give rise to the story of him being killed by KPS Gill who feared that he might start spilling the beans about the Punjab Police's ruthless torture of Sikh youth since Sandhu himself carried out a lot of the dirty work under KPS Gill's orders.
