CHANDIGARH/New Delhi, April 3 : The Delhi MLA Mr Manjinder Singh Sirsa has asked AAP head and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and his MLAs to seek apology from sikh community for hurting their sentiments by using derogatory language against the tenth sikh Guru Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

In a statement released here today he said that it was utter shameful for Mr Kejriwal and his MLAs that they used word “nautanki” for the description he was making about guru sahib. He said that it is more shameful that despite request by speaker that he (Sirsa) was telling legacy of Guru Gobind Singh ji and his approach towards dalit community AAP MLAs continued to use derogatory words.

He said that he was describing the historic event that after the sacrifice of Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib a Sikh who took his head to punjab was apprehensive. He said that he was telling members of assembly that when he reached to the guru sahib he  embraced his and uttered words “Rangrete Guru Ke Bete”.

Mr Sirsa said that he was pained to see that AAP MLAs were not only ignorant about history but they were not even ready to hear about history and used offending words against this saga of Guru Sahib which has hurt the feelings of Sikh Community.

He asked Mr Kejriwal to apologise to Sikh Sangat along his MLAs or otherwise Sangat will hold a Dharna against him.
