MURDER OF SIKHS

MALERKOTLA, PUNJAB (KP) - Further demonstrating their disdain for the Sikh Panth, Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal), fielded the wife of notorious human rights violator Mohammad Izhar Alam as the party’s candidate from Malerkotla constituency for the upcoming state assembly elections. Akali Dal (Badal), Hindu Bhartyia Janta Party (BJP) and the Sant Samaj combine are all campaigning for the upcoming state assembly elections under the same umbrella.

ALIAS USED INSTEAD OF REAL NAME

In a clever attempt to conceal her actual name Akali Dal (Badal) identified Alam’s wife only as ‘Nissara Khatoon’, instead of Farzana Alam as she is known.

Panthic organizations criticized Farzana’s nomination and described her as a proxy for her notorious spouse Izhar Alam who is the real force behind the candidate.

KILLER OF SIKH YOUTHS

Izhar Alam, the architect of the infamous “Alam Sena” responsible for “staged encounters” in which thousands of Sikh youths were eliminated under the pretext of fighting “terrorism.”

According to Wikileaks, the US Embassy on December 19, 2005 stated the following about human rights abuses of Alam:

“With regard to former Senior Superintendent Punjab Police (Jalandhar) Mohammad Izhar Alam, we can confirm that he now holds the position of Additional Director General (Administration) Punjab Police, a senior police posting.

During the insurgency, he assembled a large, personal paramilitary force of approximately 150 men known as the "Black Cats" or "Alam Sena" ("Alam's Army") that included cashiered police officers and rehabilitated Sikh terrorists.

The group had reach throughout the Punjab and is alleged to have had carte blanche in carrying out possibly thousands of staged "encounter killings."

Former DGP KP Gill even publicly praised the Alam Sena stating that the Punjab police could not have functioned without them. There are several human rights cases pending against Alam, and other Punjab Police officers involved in various human rights atrocities that occurred in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

Despite the criticism and outcry from various Panthic and Human Rights organizations, Akali Dal (Badal) had initially contemplated fielding Alam himself, and Parkash Badal even feigned ignorance on Alam’s background, and stated that he had never heard of any complaints against Alam. According to the Times of India, Parkash Badal stated "I am not aware of anything against Alam. I have never heard anything against Alam that he was involved in killing of innocents. Show me some evidence against him."

"I am not aware of anything against Alam. I have never heard anything against Alam that he was involved in killing of innocents. Show me some evidence against him."

Dubbing it as the most crucial election for the people of Punjab, Akali Dal (Badal), right-wing Hindu Bhartyia Janta Party, and the Sant-Samaj combine is vigorously campaigning across Punjab in hopes of recapturing a majority again and re-installing Parkash Badal as the next Chief Minister - most likely to be his last stint.

The Sant-Samaj has been criticized and scorned by Panthic organizations for their decision to join the right-wing Hindu Akali Dal combine and are being looked now as self-serving opportunists rather than saints or religious personalities.

DHUMMA SHARES STAGE WITH BUTCHER OF SIKHS

Several months ago, the Jathedar of Mehta faction of Damdami Taksal, and head of the Sant-Samaj, Harnam Singh Dhumma was criticized by Khalra Action Committee and the Dal Khalsa for his association with the notorious Mohammad Izhar Alam – the very man responsible for the murder and persecution of countless Sikh youths.

Pictures of Taksal Chief Harnam Singh Dhumma and Sukhdev Dhindsa have surfaced in which they and Izhar Alam were shown sharing a stage at September 15th political rally organized by Badal Akali Da at a commercial market in Malerkotla.

Initially Dhumma has denied that Alam was even present at the September 15th Malerkotla venue and then later stated that the images in the press were “fabricated” and “manipulated”. So far, the Taksal Chief has kept mum in regards to the nomination of Farzana Alam.
