The India Post, Chandigarh, 9th Feburary, 2009 :WRITES TO PRESIDENT OF INDIA, SAYS ITS VIOLATION OF INDIAN CONSTITUTION. The National President of the Sehajdhari Sikh Federation Dr.P.S.Ranu has written a letter to the President of India drawing her attention towards certain Fanatic Organizations like Bajrang Dal and Shri Ram Sena who are openly giving threats in the media that they will oppose the celebrations of Valentine day with manual forces and forcefully arrange the marriages of the couples found moving together on the Valentine day. The Sehajdhari Federation stated that these type of open statements issued for cheap popularity are against the Constitution of India and are serious threats to the Sovereignty and Integrity of India.
The two page letter states that according to Article 19(1)(d) of the Constitution of India under the RIGHT TO FREEDOM every citizen has a Right to freedom to move freely throughout the territory of India and as per Article 21 under Protection of Life and personal Liberty No person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to procedure established by Law. Hence the State Administrations are duty bound to provide protection to its citizens and to maintain law and order in the States so that no un-towards situation arises.
Also according to Article 25 of the Constitution of India "subject to public orders morality and health and to the other provisions of this part all persons are equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right freely to profess, practice and propagate religion." Hence no one has any right to impose any religious bindings on any one.
Dr.Ranu said that that the spirit of the Valentine day is to spread the message of Love and love should not be misinterpreted. It can be given a healthy meaning in India which is a land of Saints and Sages where Love has been termed as a Symbol of Sympathy towards the Humanity.
The statements and actions of these fanatic organizations has created a panic in the minds of the young generation where even bad elements will try to attain their vested motives under the grab of these organizations. The SSF has requested the President of India that necessary action should be taken against such miscreants and the State Administrations should be directed to make special arrangements for maintaining law and order.
The Sehajdhari Sikh Federation has also decided to support the Administrations and will also make necessary personal arrangements by deputing special vigilant groups of the federation to provide security to the Youths so that no anti social miscreant may dishonor the modesty of our female youngsters in the society.
Dr.Ranu stated that hopefully the Country expects stern action against such elements from the hands of Her Highness who is also the first citizen female of the Nation and people expect an exemplary action at her end so that the young generation may feel secured in the Country.
