JKNPP asks BJP to apologize to Dalit Samaj for Ravidass temple episode
8/23/2019 9:55:13 PM
Early Times Report
Jammu, Aug 23: Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) chairman Harshdev Singh has sought apology of the BJP from the Dalit Samaj for demolition of Ravidass temple as well as lathicharge on peaceful protesters.
Strongly flaying the BJP govt for resorting to Lathi charge and tear gas shelling over dalits holding peaceful protest in New Delhi against the demolition of centuries old Guru Ravi Dass Ji, Singh said that a such suppressive move provided yet another example of centre's autocratic style of functioning.
He regretted the use of disproportionate force against the poor, oppressed classes who were merely seeking reconstruction of the temple demolished by DDA. He said that NPP stood firmly behind the Dalits and other marginalized sections and would strongly resist the BJP's move of suppressing their voice. He said that he was a witness to the ugly episode of brutal Police lathi charge on peaceful protestors as he had himself attended the rally alongwith Mr. Yash Paul Kundal and other NPP leaders which started from Ram Lila Ground, Ajmeri Gate in Delhi.
Asserting that temple issue was an emotive matter for Dalits, Singh called upon the BJP led Union Govt to express unconditional apology to the said community for brutal Police action against them. He said that sentiments of millions of people were attached with the said temple of Sant Ravi Dass which was constructed in 16th century and was a symbol of cultural heritage of crores of Dalits.
He said that the voice of Dalit Samaj needed to be respected with an early action taken to assuage the hurt feelings of millions of Sant Ravi Dass followers.
Maintaining that insult to the sentiments of Dalit Samaj was intolerable, Singh called for immediate release of all these who had been arrested in New Delhi during the course of said protest. He said that the NPP team had visited the Police stations where the peaceful protestors had been lodged after wrongfully implicating them U/S 147, 149, 332 and 353 of IPC. He sought immediate withdrawal of all cases against the peaceful protestors besides early action for reconstruction of the said temple. Panthers Party shall provide all support to Dalit Samaj in their crusade for Justice, including legal assistance if need be, said Harsh Dev Singh.
