Bittu wants Centre to return Sikh reference library books


bittuThe SAD (Amritsar) Presidium will move the international court if the Centre fails to return the books of the Sikh Reference Library of the Golden Temple, which were allegedly taken away by the Army and the CBI during Operation Bluestar in 1984.

Presidium chairman Daljit Singh Bittu said here today though the SGPC had taken up the matter with the Centre, but it did not pursue it forcefully. The celebration of the tercentenary of Guruta Gaddi Divas would have no meaning if the committee did not make fresh moves in this connection.

Bittu said the party would launch a relay fast near the Parliament House from July 20 to press the government for the arrest of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Amendment to Article 25 (2)(B) that refers to Sikhs as part of the Hindu community and return of the historical Sikh books
