INSULTING REMARKS REGARDING BEADBI
“ਗੱਲ ਛੋਟੀ ਹੁੰਦੀ ਲੋਕ ਅਫਵਾਹਾਂ ਨਾਲ ਵੱਡੀ ਬਣਾ ਦਿੰਦੇ” – Parkash Badal
Furthermore, Badal, insultingly stated that the media reports of the various desecrations and cases of beadbi that are occurring throughout Punjab are small trivial occurences but people are making a a big deal out of them. His exact quote is: “ਗੱਲ ਛੋਟੀ ਹੁੰਦੀ ਲੋਕ ਅਫਵਾਹਾਂ ਨਾਲ ਵੱਡੀ ਬਣਾ ਦਿੰਦੇ”.
Such statements will only hurts the Sikh community’s sentiments as it has already recognized that Badal Government has no vested interest sypathy with the Sikh Panth and in preventing or holding anyone accountable for the desecrations.
