Shimla: Haryana government would keep the
interests of the Sikh community in mind and honour their
sentiments on the issue of formation of a separate gurdwara
prabandhak committee, Chief Minister BS Hooda said on Wednesday.
Talking to mediapersons after inaugurating the renovated
Circuit House of Haryana at Benmoor here, he said a committee
appointed by the government in this regard has submitted its
report which was being legally examined by the government.
The Chief Minister had appointed the committee during his
previous term and it submitted its report in February 2009,
after nearly four years and the government was examining the
report for the past more than two years.
Referring to the role of Khap Panchayats and Supreme
Court directions on honour killings, the chief minister said
these khap panchayats were like unregistered NGOs and have
some good social work also.
However, the government was implementing the directions
of the Supreme Court and no one was above law, he added.
