Saharanpur, July 27: Gurdwara Singh Sabha in Saharanpur, which was attacked by miscreants, is known for conducting a lot of philanthropic work, benefiting all communities in the area.
The gurdwara management has been running three educational institutes — Guru Nanak Girls Inter College, Guru Nanak Boys Inter College and Guru Teg Bahadur Public School. The total strength in these institutes is 8,000, of which 6,000 are Muslim boys and girls and Sikh students only 68.
“Nearly 3,000 students are studying in only Guru Nank Girls Inter College. The number of Muslim girl students is 1,800,” said Narinder Kohli, cashier, Gurdwara Singh Sabha.
He said they were planning to open a “degree college” near the gurdwara so that girl students didn’t have to go to another area for higher studies.
Kohli rejected the claims of the administration that a hall was being constructed on the gurdwara premises at 4 am on Saturday when people from the other community attack it.
He said anyone could visit and see whether the work was on or not. He said the pillars of 110 by 115 feet and a portion of the concrete roof of the hall were constructed several months ago.
He claimed the gurdwara management had bought the said 2,850 sq ft land from the son of Mansha Devi in 2001 where the hall was being constructed.
Gurdwara Singh Sabha president Balbir Singh Dhir said Sikhs whose population was about 7,000 in Saharanpur always worked for the betterment of all communities.
Kohli added that the Sabha bought two kothis, namely Pili Kothi and Lal Kothi, both spread in an area of 2,183 sq ft to build a degree college for girls on April 30, 2014.
“The work of demolition was going on of the Lal Kothi. The labourers work only in day time. When the miscreants attacked yesterday morning, no construction or demolition work was going on that time. Miscreants attacked the place of worship.
However, the gate of the Gurdwara was timely locked by sewadar Hardeep Singh and the Gurdwara staff and the devotees were saved,” he added.
