All religion peace march in Amritsar amidst sect row

An all-religion peace march was held here on Saturday to resolve a row over the alleged sacrilege to the Sikh community by the Dera Sacha Sauda chief.

Amritsar, May 26 : An all-religion peace march was held here on Saturday to resolve a row over the alleged sacrilege to the Sikh community by the Dera Sacha Sauda chief.

Hectic parleys are on to arrive at a compromise ahead of Sunday's deadline issued by Sikhs' top spiritual body calling upon the Dera sect to close its camps.

"We have organised this prayer meeting to pacify the current volatile situation in the state. It is an attempt to tranquillise the fear in the hearts of the people and restore peace and brotherhood," said Amarjit Singh, a Sikh priest.

"In this prayer meeting, priests of Sikh, Muslim, Hindu and Christian communities addressed the gathering and emphasised for peace in the state," added Nandlal, a Hindu priest.

Earlier in the week, an all-religion delegation, headed by Swami Agnivesh, went to Sirsa to work as peace broker in the Dera -Sikh conflict that erupted after Dera chief Ram Raheem allegedly impersonated Sikh's tenth guru, Guru Gobind Singh.

The Sikh body has since been demanding that the Dera should shut down all its camps in Punjab.

Gurmeet Singh has expressed regret, but Sikh leaders are not satisfied and want a public apology, which he has refused to give so far.

Skirmishes between rival groups flared into mob violence last week when the Akal Takht urged Sikhs to boycott the Dera Sacha Sauda sect.

One person was killed and over 50 were injured in sectarian clashes in different cities, mainly in Punjab, Haryana and Jammu.
