Jalandhar, October 14
Following a letter, Leader of Opposition in Vidhan Sabha and AAP MLA Sukhpal Khaira Saturday asked Akal Takth Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh to shun double standards in excommunicating Bibi Jagir Kaur from the Sikh Panth.Khaira has written an open letter to Giani Gurbachan Singh and the SGPC on Friday, pleading that if they could excommunicate rapist Sucha Singh Langah, then why not a convict like Bibi Jagir Kaur. “Akal Takth jathedar should not adopt double standards in excommunicating Bibi Jagir Kaur and cancelling her membership from the SGPC”, he said.The AAP MLA reacted to Bibi Jagir Kaur’s statement against him, where she said that Khaira was not Puran Singh to whom she was answerable. Khaira said, “This shows her arrogance and greed for power. She is a convict but instead of accepting her mistake, she was questioning my moral background.”He said that despite her conviction, Bibi Jagir Kaur was still a member of the SGPC and the Akal Takth was a failure in taking action against her. “The SGPC should have also disqualified her the moment she was convicted for five years. It would be blatant double standards, if Bibi Jagir Kaur is not immediately excommunicated from the Sikh Panth”, he added.It is pertinent to mention here that Harpreet Kaur, the daughter of Bibi Jagir Kaur had died under mischievous circumstances in the year 2000. Bibi Jagir Kaur was accused of forcible abortion of her daughter, after which she was found dead under mysterious circumstances.
