"Bhullar likely to be hanged secretly"

Recommended Posts


I am unsure as to what to make of this news...security has obviously been stepped up in Punjab as a number of reports are coming through confirming this. Police presence has been increased in cities like Jalandhar and Amritsar, and the Akali party has asked for army presence in punjab as per unconfirmed reports.

Does this mean that the execution is likely to happen in the next few days? What can be done? Who can directly intervene? Organisations such as Amnesty International clearly hold no weight in this issue. I feel like the only avenue is pressure on the Punjab govt and Indian govt...whether that be via the Akal Takhat or other international govts...but we don't have much time. We really need to act fast...are the Sikhs in Punjab even aware of this? I have not seen any news about protests there as was in the case of Balwant Singh Rajoana?

At least it's reassuring that Badal is at least faking he cares. That means he doesn't completely neglect all sentiments of actual Sikhs.

He's really, really cautious and knows how to be a crooked statesman.

Speculation over possible secret hanging of Bhullar;

BSF deployed in Punjab

Yudhvir Rana & I P Singh | Apr 16, 2013, 04.53 AM IST

AMRITSAR/JALANDHAR: With speculations rife over the "planned secret hanging" of Devinderpal Singh Bhullar, whose plea for commuting death sentence into life imprisonment was recently rejected by the Supreme Court, the BSF has been deployed in Punjab on the request of the state government.

Apprehending law and order problems in Punjab if Bhullar is hanged, two companies each of BSF have been deployed in Amritsar and Ludhiana and one company has been stationed near Jalandhar.

BSF inspector general Aditya Mishra told TOI on Monday that they had provided five companies of BSF to the Punjab government following a request made on April 14.

He, however, denied commenting on why the BSF companies have been demanded by Punjab government.

Sources said the government has also told BSF to go slow on deployment in order not to create panic among residents.

Reacting to the deployment of BSF, Sikh radical organization Dal Khalsa's spokesperson Kanwarpal Singh said, "I don't understand what the state government is anticipating. On the one hand chief minister P S Badal is meeting the Prime Minister for commuting death sentence of Bhullar while on the other, they are creating panic by deploying BSF."

While the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) has announced that it would seek presidential review of Bhullar's mercy petition, Laxmi Kanta Chawla, vice-president of its alliance partner BJP, said on Monday that the law should take its own course.

"Not only the President has turned down Bhullar's mercy petition but the Supreme Court has also rejected his appeal. So let the law take its course now," said Chawla.

Meanwhile, wife of Devinderpal Singh Bhullar, Navneet Kaur, who met Bhullar in a Delhi hospital on Monday, said that she also suspected that the government might hang him secretly.

"Like many others, I also fear that government may hang him quietly. If that happened, it will be very cruel and inhumane," added Kaur.

Meanwhile, Jalandhar police commissioner Gaurav Yadav said on Monday that the district has received one company of BSF.

However, senior police officials revealed that instructions to avoid appearing in overdrive in deployment of paramilitary forces have been issued to avoid panic.

"The state government doesn't want to appear over-reactive to the situation as any rumour could disturb peace in such a volatile atmosphere,' said a senior police official.

However, patrolling by Punjab Police has also been increased.

Police officials held that the state home department did not want to take any chance as in March last year, the state witnessed sudden and massive upsurge in protests as Beant Singh assassin Balwant Singh Rajoana's hanging was fixed, but delayed subsequently.

    • First thing. Im not hounding u. Nor do i have any intention too.  But what do u mean I'm pushing my luck??!!??
    • Is there a footnote or addendum for Chatropokhiyan that states, "Not All Women"? Or is it something that's considered to be assumed and not worth mentioning?  You can play with words and claim others who highlight these issues are slandering all women, but nothing in what's been stated targets every single woman alive. You can lie and force through your agenda, but then that just reveals your spiritual posturing to be as hollow and meaningless as your arguments. Do you know what statistical data is? It's drawing on information and data to present an inference based on various characteristics that are a broad occurrence, with the theory of probability, that doesn't take into account outlying extremes.  It is as simple as that. And if this needs to be stated anytime a sensitive discussion occurs on this site, then you folk are in serious trouble up ahead.  
    • Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh  No veerji. Yes of course woman are capable of terrible things to like what indira gandhi but there are other woman like Mata Sahib Kaur,Bibi Nanaki,Mai Bhago and countless other shaheed Singhanis whose greatness cannot be described.But when Guru Sahib is saying this,it is to those people who have negative stereotypes against woman and claim that all woman are like that and that only a woman can do such a kartoot.This is wrong as this would be an insult to other good woman.Its like imagine saying all Man are cunning.Then this would insult all good man.Another example is that many people abort children just because the child is female.Thats why Guru Sahib says why condemn a woman whose Greatness CAN be so powerful.But this does not apply to all woman.No it is not wrong to call Indira Gandhi bad or Rajiv Gandhi bad or a person like Wazir Khan.But it is bad to give an example of evil people and judge a whole gender or religion based on that.🙏 Bhul Chuk Maf 🙏
    • It's a problem that we need to eliminate. If we don't, it's going to be a huge problem when the time comes for unifying and moving forward.
    • I find this "from women, men are born " quote from gurbani very troublesome in my mind. Bul chuk maf  if I cause any offence. Please help me understand.  If we call Indira Gandhi bad, is it wrong because she is a woman even though she stormed our holiest place and killed so many people? She gave birth to Rajiv Gandhi. Was he a king? And how many innocent Sikhs did he kill?  If women are capable of great things, than can they be capable of terrible things too? Or does having a womb exempt them from this?
