PHOOLKA KEEPS SGPC ON TEN­TER­HOOKS

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - Htpunjab&haryana -

For­mer AAP leader Harvin­der Singh Phoolka’s move to launch a ‘Sikh Se­wak Army’ has sent the Shi­ro­mani Gur­d­wara Par­band­hak Com­mit­tee (SGPC) of­fice-bear­ers into a tizzy. After the Delhi high court awarded life sen­tence to Sa­j­jan Ku­mar for his role in the 1984 anti-sikh ri­ots, the SGPC de­cided to hon­our Phoolka along with lawyers and wit­nesses. But he then an­nounced to “lib­er­ate” the SGPC, which man­ages Golden Tem­ple and other his­toric gur­d­waras, from al­leged con­trol of the Badal fam­ily. The SGPC of­fice-bear­ers are now in a fix whether to hon­our the renowned ad­vo­cate or not. They first postponed the event and now ap­pear re­luc­tant to hold the cer­e­mony seem­ingly due to his stand. Keep watch­ing this space for how things pan out from here!
