(Chd,Pb)Punjab’s DGP Gupta Takes U Turn on His Remarks on Kartarpur Sahib Shrine Devotees
Punjab Director General of police, Dinkar Gupta, has expressed shock and outrage over his remarks made at the Indian Express Ideas Exchange event on February 20, being misunderstood or being willfully misconstrued.Earlier Top Cop has said that Sri Kartarpur Sahib has Potential to Turn a Sikh Devotee into a Terrorist within 6 Hrs
In a statement issued here, Gupta said, “I rejoiced at the opening of the Sri Kartarpur Sahib Corridor which has fulfilled the decades-old aspirations of millions of devotees like myself all over the world who profess their faith in Guru Nanak Dev Ji and his divine teachings. Their daily ardas for ‘khulle darshan-deedaar’ of religious shrines that remain in post-Partition Pakistan, was finally answered. It was a matter of even greater happiness that it coincided with the 550th Prakash Purab of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji”.
Top Cop also said that, as the DGP of the state, which is faced with continuing battle against violent extremism that continues to be funded and supported from across the border, he cannot over emphasize the need to remain vigilant.
He said,“I only red-flagged the obvious ‘potential’ for misuse by elements notorious for their hostility towards India and their effort to exploit every opportunity, even the most pious one, to disturb peace and communal harmony”
Gupta further said that his remarks at the Indian Express event were strictly pertaining to the security and safety of Punjab and India. There was absolutely no reference to any religion or community in his remarks but simply that some anti-national elements based in hostile neighborhood could misuse and exploit this opportunity and, therefore, “we” need to be vigilant to such potential dangers in the interest of peace and security of the people of the State, who, he said, had already suffered a lot in the past at the hands of terrorism promoted by our hostile neighbour.
