Hindus-Sikhs to jointly buid 'demolished'temples/gurudwaras/mosque
New Delhi, Sep 14 (UNI) In an unusual twist to the temple-Gurudwara demolition in Delhi, the Sikh Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee and the Akhil Bhartiya Sant Samiti today joined hands to 'rebuild' the temples and gurudwaras demolished during the ongoing drive in the Capital.
Addressing mediapersons here, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Uma Bharti said the historic joining of hands would give a new impetus to the 'Dharma Yuddh' of Mr M L Khurana, who has embarked upon a drive to check the ''reckless destruction'' in national capital.
''While the Sikhs under the SGPC will contribute their mite, both financially and through 'kar sewa', to build the temples, Hindus under the Akhil Bhartiya Sant Samiti will undertake the building of the Gurudwaras.'' Today Sardar Paramjit Sarna and Swami Hansdassji Maharaj have joined hands to embark upon this noble task which would also take care of rebuilding mosques, if any, which suffered during the demolition drive, she said.
''While we respect the cleansing of the Yamuna and beautification drive, it was the reckless manner with which it was being done that we are protesting. They should have called everyone and come to a pliable solution.'' What was hurtful was that the present-day rulers are insensitive to the concerns of Delhiites, she added.
Former Delhi Chief Minister Madan Lal Khurana said it was encouraging that Ms Uma Bharti had ''joined us in our fight through every means'' to free Delhiites from the insensitive attitude of the present government, which was ruining Delhi.
''I am concerned over the growing discontent among people and pained to see the indifference of the Congress towards their problems.'' There was no politics involved in this issue and the effort was purely religious, which concerned people of all faiths, he added.
