Amritsar, September 25 (KMS): Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Harjinder Singh Dhami has said that the Indian Supreme Court’s judgment regarding the Haryana Sikh Gurdwara (Management) (HSGMC) Act, 2014, was influenced by Rashtriya Sawayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideology, adding that one of the two apex court judges was associated with the RSS.
Talking to mediapersons after holding the SGPC’s Executive Committee meeting, Dhami said: “The Supreme Court judgment given by two judges regarding separate HSGMC Act is purely politically motivated and one judge among them has a direct association with the RSS.
Therefore, this judgment is motivated by political interests, in place of being the one of the Supreme Court’s.”
The SGPC president said that he had “evidence” of one judge having an association with RSS and soon, his name would be publicised.
The Executive Committee of SGPC also rejected the Supreme Court’s judgment of upholding the validity of the Haryana Sikh Gurdwara (Management) (HSGMC) Act, 2014, terming it politically motivated.
He said the SGPC’s Executive Committee had decided to file a review petition on the Supreme Court’s judgment on HSGMC Act and a special meeting of all the SGPC members has been called to discuss the future course of action at Amritsar on September 30, 2022.
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee is an organization in India responsible for the management of Gurdwaras, Sikh places of worship in two states of Punjab and Himachal Pradesh and union territory of Chandigarh.
