Sikhs condemn New Delhi’s stand against nations in India

[TamilNet, Friday, 12 August 2011, 18:45 GMT]
While pleading for the release of an Indian spy sentenced to death in Pakistan on ‘humanitarian’ grounds, Government of India advises the President of India to expedite the hangings of Sikh, Kashmiri and Tamil activists sentenced to death in India, hits out Sikh political party Dal Khalsa. In a statement on Friday the party’s general secretary Dr Manjinder Singh and spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh condemned New Delhi advising the President to reject the clemency petitions of Khalistani activist Prof Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar, Kashmiri activist Afzal Guru and Tamil activists namely Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan one after the other. They appealed to the Chief Ministers of Punjab, Kashmir and Tamil Nadu to take up the matter with the Home Ministry to seek justice for their respective (state’s) citizens.

Dal Khalsa accused the Government of India for its anti-minority mind set.

It does not seem to be a mere coincidence rather it's well thought plan of Government of India, Dal Khalsa said on the decision of GOI to expedite the hangings of the Sikh, Kashmiri and Tamil activists.

The death sentences were more a political decision than a judicial one. If the government moves on to hang any of them, it would have serious consequences as all of them command respect and sympathy amongst their respective communities, the statement further said.

Meanwhile, the Indian foreign minister was recently seeking the release of Sarbjit Singh facing death sentence in Pakistan on humanitarian grounds.
