Jalandhar, Punjab: Several Sikh bodies today held a protest against Baba Ramdev and a Jammu-based assistant professor for hurting the religious sentiments of Sikhs. They also held a protest against the city police for delaying the arrest of the duo in the case.
Harpal of the Sikh Talmel Committee said following protests by various Sikh organisations last month in Jalandhar, the city police had registered a case against yoga guru Ramdev for allegedly hurting religious sentiments.
Protesters said a case was registered after the yoga guru’s photographs, seated on a high chair with the picture of Guru Gobind Singh lying near his feet, had gone viral on the social media.
“Even after registering a case, the police have not arrested Baba Ramdev. We have been assured by senior police officials that Baba will soon be arrested,” said Harpal.
In the second case, the city police have also not arrested a Jammu-based assistant professor, who used derogatory remarks against the gurus.
Members of Sikh bodies, who were forcing shopkeepers to close shops, later put off the dharna on the promise of senior police officials to arrest both of them soon.
