U-turn on Rajoana shocking: SGPC


U-turn on Rajoana shocking: SGPC

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, December 3

Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Gobind Singh Longowal on Tuesday said it was shocking that the Union Government had “gone back” on its decision of commuting the death sentence of Balwant Singh Rajoana. He termed it as “grave injustice” meted out to the Sikh community. 

Talking to mediapersons in Chandigarh on Tuesday, he said, “There were reports in the media that the Union Home Ministry had commuted the death sentence to Rajoana. These reports were taken at face value by the Sikh community because they were never contradicted by the Home Ministry. It is because of this reason that the Home Minister’s statement has shocked everyone. We feel this is against the avowed aim of finding closure to the festering wounds of the past and making a fresh start.” The SGPC president said it was also sad that the religious body’s pleas against the death penalty as a matter of principle had gone unheeded. He appealed to the Home Minister to consider all facts and give reprieve to Rajoana.
