Namdhari supporters of Satguru Uday Singh took out a silent march Friday, demanding the arrest of the culprits in the Chand Kaur murder case.
Starting from the Namdhari martyrs’ memorial in Ludhiana till office of deputy commissioner, the Namdhari followers carried placards with messages such as ‘We Want Justice’, ‘Arrest killers of Chand Kaur’ written on them.
Guru Uday Singh’s supporters are now demanding a ban on speeches of his estranged brother Thakur Dalip Singh in Punjab.
The protesters, including youths from Namdhari Youth Wing and women’s wing, alleged that ‘hate speeches’ by Dalip Singh to Namdhari followers may trigger violence, leading to law and order problems in Punjab. In the memorandums to deputy commissioner and police commissioner, the followers alleged that Dalip Singh is trying to “disturb peace and harmony’ in Punjab.”
Surinder Singh, president of Vishwa Namdhari Sangat, who led the march, said, “The march was taken out register our silent protest against failure of police to crack the case even after ten days. We demand that culprits be arrested at the earliest. Also, Dalip Singh is giving hatred speeches to instigate his followers. It can lead to violence in Punjab. We demand a ban on his speeches in Punjab.”
Meanwhile, Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, along with Punjab DGP Suresh Arora and Ludhiana police commissioner JS Aulakh, visited Bhaini Sahib Friday. Sukhbir assured Satguru Uday Singh that the Special Investigation Team would arrest the culprits soon.
