Sikh clashes continue in Amritsar

To prevent clashes between Sikh organizations and followers of Dera Sacha Sauda (DSS), the district administration today imposed prohibitory orders under Section 144 in the city.

Amritsar, May 16 : To prevent clashes between Sikh organizations and followers of Dera Sacha Sauda (DSS), the district administration today imposed prohibitory orders under Section 144 in the city.

The Jammu-Pathankot highway has been blocked by the Akali protesters and in Bhatinda the school and colleges would remain closed for three days.

Yesterday, scores of people and policemen were injured when the two rival factions clashed for the second consecutive day in the State.

Clashes began on Monday in Bhatinda after local newspapers carried an advertisement showing Baba Gurmeet Singh Ram Raheem, head of DSS, a Sikh religious sect, in an attire akin to that of Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth spiritual head of the Sikh community.

Dera Sacha activists have alleged that their rivals have denigrated their sect by burning effigies of Ram Raheem.

Followers of the Damdami Taksal (Bhindranwala) and other Sikh organizations set ablaze effigies of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Sant Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in protest against the advertisement.

The Jathedar of the Akal Takht, Giani Joginder Singh Vedanti, has taken serious note of the incident, but appealed to the protesters to exercise restraint.
