Sikh activists protest Tytler hoardings

Amritsar, August 16

Activists of Sikh organisations today protested after hoardings carrying ‘birthday wishes’ for Congress leader Jagdish Tytler emerged in the holy city.

Tytler’s role is under the scanner for his alleged role in the November 1984 anti-Sikh riots in Delhi and other parts of the country. As soon as the news spread, Sikh activists lodged a strong protest. The hoardings were fixed atop the roadside buildings with Tytler’s picture being displayed, and carried birthday wishes prominently. The agitating leaders removed the hoardings and blackened the picture of the Congress leader.

Sadar SHO Parveen Kumar said no complaint had been received in this regard so far. “The incident occurred early in morning. The activists lodged their protest and removed the hoardings,” he said. — TNS
