Indore: The building of Gurdwara Sahib ‘Kartar Kirtan’ in Raj Mohalla area of Indore district of Madhya Pradesh has been reportedly completely destroyed by the administration. According to information given by Gurpreet Singh, a member of the Gurdwara Management Committee, the weekly meeting was going on in Guru Ghar Saturday. Suddenly the municipal corporation, including the police, entered the house.
In violation of the law, along with the 400 police personnel admitted, the force of other people started carrying the formation of the Guru Granth Sahib decorated in the house of the Guru. The Sangat started the protest, but due to the high number of officials, the Sangat was pushed out of the house. Diwan Guru was decorated on the first floor of the house. The women were dragged down and pulled down the stairs by the police. Meanwhile, an 80-year-old elder was injured.
According to the administration, after induction of Indore city into Smart City scheme by the Modi government, the government had informed all the religious places allotment and shift there. After this the Sikh sangat had demanded that the Guru’s house be of 50 years old, the sentiments of the Sangat are associated with this place.
That’s why any other way should be taken out, but the action taken by unexpected administration suddenly is condemnable. The pictures show that a complete dispute of Gurdwara’s building has been abolished. The police has taken 3 of the 4 forms of Sri Guru Granth Sahib and taken them somewhere. No information is being given about this, while the Sangat has managed to keep one of them with the same form.
