July 09: Tension prevails among two sects of Sikh followers and as a result another follower of Dera Sacha Sauda ablaze himself at Bhatinda. Yesterday evening the man named Shyam Sunder Bansal (32) a local of Paras Ram Nagar set himself aflame.

He was soon rushed to the Civil Hospital after burning nearly 70 per cent of his body. His condition is still remaining serious according to the hospital doctor.

Soon after the news reached other Dera followers hundreds of Dera Sacha supporters hurried to the hospital and keeping in mind the law and order situation, heavy police force have been deployed around the hospital and in the city.

As said by the family members they were being pressurised by some Sikh body members to leave the sect. Meanwhile police has not mentioned any reason over Bansal’s step.

Following the constant conflict between the two sects of Sikh community over Dera chief, Baba Gurmit Ram Rahim Singh, accused of hurting religious sentiments. The act of imitating the 10 th Sikh Guru Govind Singh who belongs to the other sect Akalis has created disturbances between the two sects.

Earlier last week another Dera devotee, Jaswinder, committed suicide by burning himself and this is the second instance. After these two incidences, situation remains tense in various cities of Punjab especially in those places where Dera followers live on a large number.

Keeping in mind the intense situation the administration needs to take a hard look at every development and try to bring out all possible solution of the conflict.
