Latest   Up  Date  About News;Chandigarh, Sep 14 (PTI) Members of the Sikh community will take out a procession from Delhi to Haridwar later this month seeking re-allocation of land on the banks of the Ganges where a Sikh shrine was allegedly destroyed. Various Sikh organisations under the banner of All India Sikh Conference (Babbar) are demanding that land opposite Har Ki Pauri in Haridwar where the Gyan Godari Sahib Gurudwara existed should be re-allocated to them, President of the Conference Gurcharan Singh Babbar told reporters here.
Babbar claimed that proof of the existence of the Sikh shrine 400 years ago is available in the revenue records of the then government.”There is ample evidence that the Gurudwara was there adjacent to holy Ganges, but was later destroyed in the 80?s and shops were constructed in the area,” he said.
Rejecting the Uttarakhand government’s offer to allot alternative land to establish a Gurudwara in Haridwar, Babbar said “If the government is keen to allot alternative land for establishing the Gurudwara which once existed, then there should be the same criteria as in case of Ram temple and Babri Masjid.”
The procession will commence from Gurudwara Rakab Ganj in the national capital on September 22 and will converge at Haridwar. Activists of several organisations, including radicals Damdami Taksal and Sant Samaj, will also be part of the procession, he said.
