Jammu,14 Sep: A deputation led by S Balvinder Singh Vice President DGPC Jammu along with S Jagjeet Singh President and S Janak Singh Secretary, S Rajinder Singh Vice President, S Karanjit Singh Treasure DGPC Reasi, S Harjeet Singh Ex Secretary DGPC Reasi, S Tejinder Singh Member DGPC Jammu, S S Rajinder Singh, S Janak Singh, S Sharanjit Singh member Sikh Progressive Front JK, met Deputy Commissioner Reasi Babila Rukwal and submitted a memorandum demanding the immediate removal of illegal occupation of the Gurudwara building at Ram Gali Reasi.
Deputations stated that the Gurudwara Sahib was burnt by some miscreants during the Anti-Sikh riots of 1984 and later on someone illegally occupied it. They further stated that the Local Sikh Population brought this to the notice of higher authorities time and again and especially in the years 2007 & 2015 and resulting which the matter being investigated by the then Deputy Commissioners Reasi and a report by Tehsildar Reasi & Patwari Concerned confirm the illegal occupation of the Gurudwara building.
Balvinder stated in the memorandum submitted to DC Reasi that we are sorry to say that no action has been initiated by the District Administration to get the Gurudwara building vacated and handed over possession to the Sikh Community and elected Committee of DGPC Reasi. It creates doubt in the minds of the Sikh Community about the role of the District Administration.
The deputations also brought to the notice of DC Reasi one more incidence which occurred recently where someone entered the room of Gurudwara Sahib Talwara by breaking the wall from the backside as the Sewadar who was residing in the said room had gone out by locking the room. The Sewadar of Gurudwara Sahib also brought this to the notice of SSP Reasi on the 11th of September and SSP marked it to the concerned SHO.
Mr. Singh urged upon DC Reasi that keeping in view the sensitivity of the issue of illegal possession of the gurudwara building good self must consider the matter on top priority and assuage the feelings of the Sikh Community by taking immediate steps to get the building vacated and hand over the possession to DGPC Reasi.
Singh also urged SSP Reasi to take up the matter where someone forcibly entered one room of Gurudwara Sahib Talwara by breaking the back wall of the room and book those miscreants under the law to pacify the resentment prevailing in the Community because of the continuous attempt of trespassing into our religious Institutions.
