Jalandhar, July 28

Jalandhar Cantonment Congress MLA Pargat Singh has written to Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, asking him to get the 2007 blasphemy case against Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh reopened.

In a letter to the CM, he said: “Now that the SIT investigating the 2015 Bargari case has expedited the inquiry and nominated the dera chief in the case, it is time that the 2007 blasphemy case be re-investigated and the guilty be brought to the book. Our party had come to power in the state after giving a commitment to the people that all those involved in sacrilege and blasphemy cases will be punished.”

Pargat said: “The then SAD-BJP government had, in a very dubious way, withdrawn the 2007 case against the dera chief just four days ahead of the 2012 elections. As per my information, a petition into the matter had been filed by a Ludhiana-based lawyer. You must ask the Advocate General of Punjab to get details of this case, check its legalities at the earliest so that it can be reopened.”

He alleged that the dera functionaries had enjoyed the patronage of the previous SAD-BJP leadership due to which they engaged in sacrilegious activities without any fear.
