Tension prevailed in Haryana’s holy city Kurukshetra on Saturday as members of Haryana Sikh Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (HSGPC) tried to wrest control of state’s largest gurudwara Chathi Patshahi located in the city.
Around 500 Sikhs from various parts of Haryana gathered in Kurukshetra and marched towards gurudwara Chathi Patshahi under the leadership of HSGPC chief Jagdish Singh Jhinda. The police had put up four barriers enroute to the gurudwara out of which three were broken th the HSGPC supporters.
The Sikhs were also carrying traditional weapons like spears, swords and sticks. After they were stopped from entering the gurudwara, the state Sikhs around 500 in number stated protest on the road and blocked the traffic.
“We want to take control of the gurudwara peacefully and have appealed all Sikhs to reach Kurukshetra to help us take the control,” Jagdish Singh Jhinda said.
Earlier on Saturday HSGPC organised a meeting in Kurukshetra and chalked out the strategy to take control of Haryana gududwaras.
Jhinda on Friday had warned SGPC to vacate the gurudwaras and had even said that if the gurudwars were not vacated peacefully ‘anything can happen anytime’.
