Amritsar, September 13

Irked over exclusion of Punjabi from the JK Language Bill 2020, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and urged him to review the decision.

SGPC chief Gobind Singh Longowal said this move has hurt the sentiments of Punjabis. He said Sikhs in Jammu and Kashmir (JK) were already deprived of their minority status and now they were being pushed further with injustice done to the Punjabi language.

“Millions of people in JK speak Punjabi language. Still, Punjabi has been excluded from the JK Language Bill 2020, passed by the Government of India. This has caused outrage among Sikhs,” said Longowal.
