Condemning the attack on the Home Minister P.Chidambram by a Sikh Journalist the Sehajdhari Sikh Federation leadership has stated that though it was the sentimental emotional feelings of the Journalist but these type of cheap activities for cheap popularity drive a wedge in the hearts of other communities and is not in the National interest. There are may peaceful ways to protest and this type of ugly demonstration by a responsible media person who is a part of the fourth precious pillar of democracy needs to be condemned from all sectors.

The Sehajdhari Sikh Federation a registered Political Party by the Election Commission of India gave clean chit to congress party stating the CBI is not under the control of the Congress Party as the truth has emerged out from the fact that the report though favourable for Tytler and others was virtually adverse for the Congress especially in these election days and if it was the congress managing the affairs of CBI then it would have definitely delayed the report till elections. This has rather raised suspicions that the BJP or NDA might have been working behind the curtain to rake up the issue at the neck of the hour during the elections as they had no other better cause to divide the vote banks through communal politics.

Terming the CBI report as unfortunate of the Sikhs the SSF National President Dr.P.S.Ranu stated that the Sikh community should keep faith in the judiciary and wait for the results and should restrain to react on the provocations by these Akalis who have no agenda except Blue Star bitter memories and 1984 riots. It is a matter of record that in the recent past in the Nothari kand the CBI acquitted the main accused Moninder Pandher but the Court convicted him. The Sehajdhari Sikh Federation appealed the Sikh community to raise a question before the Akali-BJP combine that in the past 25 years the NDA has ruled the country and what efforts were done by them to expedite the issue during their regime. How many families have been granted relief by the State Governments and the SGPC to the victims of the 84 riots. It is only during the elections that the Akalis start pouring oil on the wounds of the victims.

Congress has always uplifted the Sikhs to the senior most administrative portfolios of the Country and now again Dr.Manmohan Singh a Punjabi Sikh has been selected as Prime Ministerial candidate by the congress and the people of Punjab should come out above all of these petty political games of the vested forces and boldly strengthen him by all means urged the federation. The Sehajdhari Sikh Federation said that the Akali Leadership has failed at all fronts to fight for the cause of the 1984 riot victims and now the federation would come out at the back of the victims and will fight for the cause till supreme court for justice.
