Galee's profile picture apparently shows him with his wife, even as access to the FB account (jeet.galee) is now 'private'. The authenticity of the account/user is yet to be established. Also, it's not clear yet whether the account has been hacked or not. "The picture has hurt religious feelings of Sikhs. It's a deliberate insult," said Youth Organisation of India president Maninder Pal Singh Teetu. A delegation of the organisation met commissioner of police, Ludhiana, Paramjeet Singh Gill in this regard on Thursday. The commissioner assured the delegation of stern action.
"We will launch a statewide agitation if the police fail to do the needful," said Teetu.When contacted, Gill said various aspects of the case were being verified by the police.
"There is confusion about whether a case against Galee has already been registered in Pathankot or Amritsar. Senior superintendents of police (SSPs) concerned have been asked to verify the matter. If it's not so, a fresh case can be registered," the commissioner said. He also appealed to various sections of society to maintain calm.
SGPC writes to Malaysian envoy
Upset at the Facebook picture, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has written to the Malaysian high commissioner to take stern action against Galee for hurting religious sentiments of Sikhs.
"We have also appealed to Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal to take up the matter with the Centre to ensure that the Malaysian government puts the culprit behind bars," SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar told Hindustan Times.
