SGPC orders ban on media entry in Golden Temple on June 6

Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) banned media coverage at the premises of Golden Temple on June 6, the 32nd anniversary of Operation Bluestar. The order in this connection was passed by SGPC Chief Secretary Harcharan Singh.In a letter written to Police Commissioner Amar Singh Chahal and District Public Relation Officer Sherjang Singh Hundal, Harcharan Singh sought help of the police to keep the media away from the periphery of Golden Temple on June 6 morning when the
anniversary of Operation Bluestar is to be observed. Singh said media has always interfered in the SGPC programme, hence press coverage for electronic media as well as photo journalists will not be allowed as it may hurt sentiments of Sikh devotees.

The Ban was Lifted later on...
