The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today urged union home minister Rajnath Singh to grant citizenship to all Afghan Sikh and Hindu families who had taken refuge in India after fleeing persecution in Afghanistan, saying the country must come to the aid of all these displaced persons.
A SAD delegation which met the Union home minister in this regard, also urged him to examine and get a notification of the Union territory of Chandigarh making it mandatory for all Sikh women to wear helmets reversed. The delegation also submitted a list of Sikh detainees who are still languishing in various jails after the end of their jail terms to the Home Minister to facilitate their release.
