As many as 30 Sikh groups have demanded resignation from the President of Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, head, Gobind Singh Longowal for allegedly supporting Dera Sacha Sauda’s Rapist self-claimed godman, Gurmeet Ram Rahim in 2005.
Sikh bodies are claiming that, when in the year 2005, CBI investigation was demanded against the rapist Baba, the current head of SGPC, Gobind Singh protested against it.
Sukhdev Singh Phagwara and Harjinder Singh Majhi, the representatives of the organization Darbar-e-Khalsa, also displayed copies of the English newspapers printed on September 21, 2005, alleging that Longowal had also reached Dharna given by the Dera Premis at Sangrur.
During their protest Darbar-e-Khalsa, representatives, demanded to summon Longowal to Akal Takht so that he could be examined about his stand, on which side he is, Sikh Panth or Gurmeet Ram Rahim?
On the other end, Longowal has rejected these allegations, but he has not yet been given a clean chit on the issue.
This is not the first time that Gobind Singh is facing these charges, this issue was raised even when he contested the SGPC elections for the first time.
As the elections are upon us, only the time will tell where this issue will land Singh.
