Recent amendment to Anand Marriage Act – achievement for the Sikhs or fraud with the Sikhs?
Published: May 28, 2012
Ludhiana, Punjab (May 28, 2012): Whereas, many circles of Sikh diaspora and Badal Dal leaders are busy in hailing the “success” in getting Anand Marriage Act, 1909 amended in the Indian Parliament, Sikh academicians and scholars have taken strong exception to the generalized view in this matter and have termed the recent amendment as a “fraud” with the Sikhs.
In a talk show organized by the “Sikh Siyasat” on May 27, 2012 Dr. Daljit Singh (LLB., LL.M, Ph. D), Principal of Khalsa College Amritsar, said marriage registration alone was never the demand of Sikhs rather Sikhs were continuously demanding comprehensive personal law.
Prof. Jagmohan Singh was of the view that Indian Parliament has played a fraud with the Sikhs and misguided & selfish sections among Sikhs are celebrating this fraud.
Many serious implications of the amendment were highlighted by Dr. Daljit Singh and Sirdar Gurtej Singh IAS. S. Parmjeet Singh Gazi, President of Sikh Students Federation, also participated in this talk show.
