AISSF complaints against Navjot Sidhu to Akal Takht

In what could spell fresh trouble for cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, All India Sikh Student Federation (AISSF) has registered a complaint to Akal Takht for allegedly twisting words from Gurubani.


Chandigarh: In what could spell fresh trouble for cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, All India Sikh Student Federation (AISSF) has registered a complaint to Akal Takht for allegedly twisting words from Gurubani.

In the letter, AISSF has alleged that the BJP leader twists words from Gurbani during his speeches and statements.

It also raised doubts whether Sidhu's actions are politically motivated and at the behest of RSS.

The AISSF has also demanded action against Sidhu.

Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal said that he cannot stop anyone from speaking what they want to.

Sidhu had stirred controversy during a religious function in Ludhiana, when he reportedly took a dig at the SAD's slogan of "Raj Nahi, Sewa (service, not rule)".

He said that it is “only 10 per cent sewa (service) and 90 per cent mewa (commercial gain)"

The comment by Sidhu irked SAD which demanded disciplinary action against him for making the “derogatory remarks” and asked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to 'tame' him.

However, Sidhu later clarified that the remarks were not directed at SAD.

"What I had said was that the demons must be dealt with. Those who loot and plunder Punjab must go. If certain Akalis are saying that he (Sidhu) is talking about us (them), I never knew they fall in this category," Sidhu said.
