Kejriwal visits Golden Temple

Amritsar: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday paid obeisance at the Harmandir Sahib, popularly known as the Golden Temple, here and said “no one could live in peace after insulting holy scriptures”.
Stating that he prayed for the “return of peace” in Punjab, which is witnessing protests in some parts over the desecration of the Sikhs’ holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib, Kejriwal said “I also appeal to the people of Punjab to maintain peace.”
Kejriwal was visiting Punjab to meet the families of the two youths killed in police firing while protesting against the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib in Faridkot district.
Terming the desecration of the holy book as “painful”, the chief minister told reporters that it was a “wilful act” to disturb peace in Punjab.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader condemned the police action, saying it was wrong to use force against people who were protesting peacefully against acts of sacrilege.
He said it was the responsibility of the Punjab government to arrest the real culprits behind the incidents of desecration, saying no innocent person should be slapped with “false cases”. (IANS)
