SAD condemns Delhi AAP govt for demolishing church


DW BUREAU / Chandigarh The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today condemned the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi for demolishing a church in South Delhi, saying this action was reflective of the anti-minority bias of AAP. In a statement here, former minister Bikram Singh Majithia said AAP had always pursued an anti-Punjabi agenda be it demanding a share in the State's river waters for Delhi and Haryana, petitioning in the court to register criminal cases against farmers of Punjab for burning stubble and even trying to force closure of the thermal plants in Punjab. "Now we have witnessed AAP following the policy of majoritism in Delhi by ordering the demolition of the Little Flower church in South Delhi. This is proof that AAP also believes in subjugating the minority communities in a systematic manner. No one can tolerate this fascist approach which also impinges on the right to religious freedom enshrined in our constitution. Such kind of thinking is dangerous for the country", Mr Majithia said adding the AAP government had earlier demolished a historic 'Piao Sahib' at Sisganj gurdwara in Delhi. Demanding that the church be reconstructed at the same spot at the earliest, Mr Bikram Majithia said AAP was not only guilty of persecuting minorities but also involved in a sordid cover up exercise. He said Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had gone to the extent of lying in Goa by claiming that the Delhi Development Board was responsible for demolishing the church. "The truth is that the church was demolished on the orders of the AAP government without assigning any notice". He said the church was situated on gram sabha land owned by the Delhi government and the Delhi government demolished it in an arbitrary manner without even referring the matter to the Religious Committee of the Delhi government.
