Amritsar: Sukhbir Singh Badal, the Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab in India planned to locate a modern casino, based on the famous American City Las Vegas that is known for its amusement provided by casinos, hotels and bars. The proposed casino is to be set up near Ludhiana city, however a number of Sikh organization in India as well as in the U.S. are criticizing this proposal. Gambling is not allowed in Sikh religion and opening of Casinos is dead against the Sikh religion. Therefore the Chief Minister should not materialize this proposal as stated by JS Hoti, the president of AGPC (American Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee) on Saturday to Times of India. It is printed in Sikh Code of Conduct (Sikh Rehat maryada) by Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee that a person belonging to Sikh religion should abide to steal, create hesitant groups or involve in gambling.
In his antagonistic statement, Pritpal Singh, the director of AGPC informed that the Akal Takht Jathedar will be shortly acknowledged in writing about the opening of casinos and will be requested to look into this matter that is antagonistic to Sikh philosophy and culture. Gambling is the most evil custom that should be avoided by Sikhs as suggested by Sikh Gurus. Also it will devastate the wealthy culture of Punjab and allure people to engage in this effortless money making process of gambling. In case, Badal moves forward with the launching of Casinos in Punjab, AGPC will start a pressure group amidst Sikh Diaspora across the globe. This proposal of government to produce profits from casinos will face a criticism at every step and an agreement will be made on international level in opposition to it amidst Sikhs. He added that casinos will generate more evils which are intolerable by Sikh society. Grieving over the nuisance caused by the habit of drugs in Punjab, he stated that government is going to bring up more troubles instead of defending Punjabi young generation from it.
Kanwarpal Singh, the representative of Sikh radical organization, Dal Khalsa condemned Badal by stating that they can’t hope for something good from him who had arranged stripped dance before the commencement of Kabaddi matches the past year.
