Sikh Leaders Call for Time

The Sikh leadership has put out a call to the Sikh people, requesting them to be calm, to have patience and to keep faith in their leadership. They have asked that no action be taken up by the masses, and that they wait for one month to pass. Then if the people are not satisfied with the actions which their leadership have taken, they should agitate in whatever way they deem fit.

No doubt it is important that the Sikh leadership prove its ability to govern at this time, it is important that the Sikhs remain united and that they not be led into any line of action which would give justification to the Central Government to step in and assume control of the situation-thus of the Sikhs and of the Punjab. But if its just a ploy, just a bid for time, until the sentiments and emotions of the people have cooled down, and then if we see that our 'leadership' has been unable to do anything to apprehend all of the guilty ones. Then what? Now the S.G.P.C. is sponsoring a con­ference on the 17th, (already pushing the month's waiting period beyond the 13th of May). At this conference, the panth is to unite in this common tra­gedy, to find ways and means of organ­izing the body of the Sikhs above and beyond all of the politics. Let us add our prayers and our energies to this effort. Let us pray that the lives of these martyrs may serve to bring greater strength, greater spirit and greater unity to the entire body of the Sikhs throughout the world.
