NO DIWALI CELEBRATIONS THIS YEAR
On Nov. 3, 1984, thousands of Sikh girls and women were openly being raped. Thousands of Sikhs were being tortured to death. Our ruler has not given us justice despite 29 years because they had done it deliberately. Incidentally this year the great festival Diwali falls on Nov. 3.
Thus as a respect to my Delhi brothers and sisters who were tyrranised on that day, I will not celebrate this Diwali.
Though the Shromani Gurdwara Committee has clarified that they would celebrate it, notwithstanding. I can assume that they have many limitations as a ruler but fortunately I am free man and have no such limitations. Therefore at least I will not celebrate.
Also Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana who has been declared by Sri Akal Takhat as 'Jinda Shaheed' the LIVING MARTYR has appealed to Sikh nation that this Diwali be not celebrated. I also thus bow to the appeal of this martyr who has sacrificed his life for the dignity of Sikh nation.
I therefore also appeal my brothers and sisters please comply with the appeal of Bhai Rajoana. Please forward this message to every Sikh in your connection.
