Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal says he was “saddened” but “Happy” Soni lived and glad that the three suspects were caught. He says he wants to maintain Hindu Sikh brotherhood and won’t let elements disrupt relations.
However, Sikhs around the world are wondering why CM Badal didn’t show sympathy for Bhai Jaspal Singh who was killed by police officers in 2012.
Also, CM Badal didn’t attend Bhai Jaspal’s funeral or any other Sikh who died in related clashes. Sumedh Saini and CM Badal addressed reporters regarding the shooting of Harminder Soni.
