The Hush Post: Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) president Manjit Singh GK and his family members were beaten up in New York by a few Khalistan supporters.
Manjit Singh, who is also the president of Delhi unit of the Shiromani Akali Dal, posted a video about the incident which took place after he was coming out of a TV studio.
In the video, those getting violent with Manjit can be seen hurling expletives at him.
The allegations hurled against Manjit Singh GK were that he was allegedly involved in desecration incidents and Bargari deaths in Punjab, as per a report.
The protest was staged under the banner of Sikh Coordination Committee East Coast (USA) with which around 95 local gurdwara committees are associated.
The committee’s coordinator, Himmat Singh, said Sikhs living abroad held the SAD government responsible for the Bargari shootout and a series of blasphemy instances in Punjab. He said, “These instances were staged by misutilising the government machinery to gain political mileage and Justice Ranjit Singh commission’s report has testified it.”
“A group of people attacked me and my relatives in New York. This will not scare me away from my path to serve the community. I have fought and I will fight to my last breath. Such cowardly incidents do not scare me,” Manjit Singh tweeted tagging External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.
