Mass protest & panthic gathering outside dc faridkot office in support of falsely accused sikh brothers
Thousands of Sikhs , including the panchayat members of Panjgrain Khurd, and nearby village on Friday reached Faridkot to submit a memorandum to the deputy commissioner (DC) demanding immediate release of two brothers Rupinder Singh and Jaswinder Singh who were framed by Punjab Police on Tuesday in connection with the first case of alleged desecration of Dhan Dhan Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj at Bargari village on October 12.
There was a protest march on 23 October 2015 by Panthic groups from Panjgrain Kalan to Faridkot, where there was a large Panthic gathering outside the DC Office. This was in support of the two brothers Bhai Rupinder Singh and Bhai Jaswinder Singh, who have been arrested and falsely accused by the Police of committing the Bargari Beadbi. The Sikh Panth has not accepted such accusations and Panthic personalities have spoken out in their defence, demanding for the false registered cases to be withdrawn immediately and the real perpetrators found and punished. Baba Ranjit Singh Khalsa Dhadrianwale had said this was a drama being created to hide the truth.
Alleging frame-up, the protesters said Rupinder and Jaswinder were innocent. The protesters, led by Sikh leaders Baljeet Singh Daduwal, Sukhjeet Singh Khosa of the satkar committee, Paramjeet Singh Khalsa, president of the Sikh Students Federation (Mehta), Ranjeet Singh Dhandrianwale, Panthpreet Singh, Amrik Singh Ajnala, head of Damdami Taksal, Daler Singh Kheriwale, Rajinder Singh Majhi, Daler Singh Doad, Surjeet Singh Arianwale and Dhian Singh Mand, assembled at Panjgrain Khurd gurdwara and reached Faridkot around 1:30 pm
Besides people from Panjgrain Khurd, residents of Panjgrain Kalan, Malke, Saho Ke, Smalsar, Thathi Bhai, Sekha, Faridkot and Kotkapura towns also joined the protest march and were not ready to buy the police theory that the two brothers were involved in the desecration of Dhan Dhan Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj .
