Two Radical Sikh Groups Join Hands To Achieve Khalistan

AMRITSAR – Two Sikh radical outfits — Dal Khalsa and SAD Panch Pardhani — have merged under a single entity to peacefully and democratically achieve their objective Khalistan.

In a significant development that could give a push to radical politics, Harcharanjit Singh Dhami, president of the Dal Khalsa, and Kulbeer Singh Barapind, president of the Panch Pardani, signed the joint document hereby declaring that they had decided in principle to merge both the groups into single entity. The heads of both the parties vowed to carry on with their mission to attain independence.

They resolved to unite with an aim to infuse a new life into the right to self-determination movement.

Underlining the growing unrest among the Sikh youth because of the incompetent and incapable religio-political leadership and degradation in Sikh politics, both the groups decided in principle to close ranks to provide a new platform for their fellow brethren.

They categorically stated that under the Indian dispensation they would not contest the elections. However, they said they view the SGPC elections as exception and would decide about it at an appropriate time.

“We will retain either name from the both that will be disclosed after some more deliberations. The name of the organisation, its president and other office-bearers will be announced soon,” they said.

Bhai Daljit Singh Khalsa and Bhai Gajinder Singh, founder leaders of their respective groups, gave their blessings and consent for merger. They pinned hope that this unity would inspire more like-minded parties and personalities to tie-up with them.

They said there was a need to instil pride in the Sikh youth of their culture, heritage and history.

Advocate Harpal Singh Cheema and Kanwar Pal Singh, who played the role of facilitator in bringing both the groups closer, were vocal against the negative image of the Khalistan as a terrorist movement being aired on internet media. They said the new organisation would demolish this image by peaceful propaganda.
