Chandigarh, November 4, 2023: As per media reports former Punjab Chief Minister and Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Capt Amarinder Singh today sought strict action against a Rajasthan leader Sandeep Damya for his hate remarks about mosques and gurdwaras in the country.
In a statement issued here today, Capt Amarinder said, people like Damya, who speak mindlessly and make vicious statements should have no place in a party like the BJP. He said, the apology by the said leader served no purpose as it had already caused immense hurt to well meaning people.
He asserted that nobody should be allowed to get away with a mere apology after provocative hate speeches.
Capt Amarinder said, not only should he be expelled from the party, there must be legal action also.
The statement led to widespread anger among the Sikhs, forcing Sandeep Dayma to issue an apology.
Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) President Advocate Harjinder Singh Dhami also said that for the anti-Sikh statement during the rally in Rajasthan, including the UP CM Shri Adityanath, the organizer of the rally and the person who made the statement should immediately apologize to the Sikh community and the Bharatiya Janata Party should also clarify its position in this regard.
