SGPC President object to parole to Gurmeet Ram Rahim

Amritsar : The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) President Harjinder Singh Dhami has  objected to another 30-day parole given to Dera Sirsa chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim, who is serving a sentence in jail under rape and murder charges.

 He said in a statement that this dual policy of the governments is creating an environment of mistrust among the Sikhs. He said that if Gurmeet Ram Rahim, who is accused of the crimes like murders and rapes, can be given repeated paroles, then why the government is not listening to the voice raised by the Sikh community for the release of Bandi Singhs (Sikh prisoners).

The SGPC President said that the governments are turning a blind eye to the heinous crimes of Gurmeet Ram Rahim for their political interests and are letting him free repeatedly. 

“Such a policy of the governments is going to make the Sikhs feel alienated, which is not good for the country. The parole of Gurmeet Ram Rahim should be canceled immediately, and he should be locked up in jail”, said Advocate Harjinder Singh Dhami.
