Dirty and Selfish Politics Surrounding Guru’s Sacrilege in Punjab
Giving a political angle to the sacrilege incidents in Punjab, Sidhu said that today politics has become so dirty and selfish that even for the politics of votes, sacrilege of Guru can be done. Chandigarh Punjab Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu has spoken of hanging those who commit sacrilege in front of everyone. Supporting Taliban punishment, Sidhu said that the accused who committed such acts of desecration, whether of Gita or Quran or Guru Granth Sahib, should get the same punishment.
Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu has created a storm in the politics of the state by taking out the political angle in the incidents of sacrilege. Significantly, after a few months, the assembly elections are going to be held in Punjab. In such a situation, while the incidents of sacrilege are spoiling the atmosphere of the state, they will definitely affect the coming assembly elections as well. In such a situation, Sidhu’s gesture that ‘dirty and selfish politics can also cause sacrilege of the Guru for the politics of votes’ will definitely bring a storm in the politics of the state.
Though Sidhu has not named any political party, presenting a political angle on such a serious issue without any facts can harm the communal spirit of the state. The same opposition parties can also raise questions on Sidhu regarding this statement. Because at present Punjab is ruled by Congress of which he is the President. Sidhu’s statement on sacrilege can once again put the party in trouble.
Addressing an election rally in Malerkotla, Navjot Singh Sidhu, while advocating for Taliban punishment, said that those who commit sacrilege should be hanged in front of everyone. Sidhu said that doing sacrilege is an attempt to hurt the sentiments of our community. Mistake can happen to anyone, but dishonesty is not a mistake but a conspiracy to suppress and destroy a community. He said that the reprehensible incident that took place in Darbar Sahib can also happen in any temple, mosque or church. But we all have to maintain a brotherly spirit.
