Sikhs and students clash over ad denigrating Guru Gobind Singh

Several people were injured when a Sikh faction clashed with students over a newspaper advertisement, that denigrated Guru Gobind Singh.

Bhatinda/Amritsar (Punjab), May 15 : Several people were injured when a Sikh faction clashed with students over a newspaper advertisement, that denigrated Guru Gobind Singh.

The clashes on Monday evening took place after it was discovered that some newspapers had carried an advertisement showing Baba Gurmeet Singh Ram Raheem, the head of the Dera Sacha Sauda (DSS), a Sikh religious sect, in attire akin to that of Guru Gobind Singh.

DSS activists clashed with All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) activists.

"Everybody has the right to spread religion, but nobody has the right to burn or disrespect leaders of other sects. We do not tolerate such things by other sects," said Ram Singh Pradhan, a DSS activist.

Baljit Singh, an injured AISSF activist, said: "They attacked us, and in the process, we also attacked them and were injured".

AISSF activists also organised a protest in Amristar.
