Dal Khalsa head HS Dhami called upon leaders of the Sikh community to be sensitive towards the panthic situation and avoid controversial issues that have a potential of creating bad blood within the community. Speaking at a conference, 'Martyrs and our responsibilities', organised by its youth wing Sikh Youth of Punjab (SYP) on the occasion of martyrdom day of Guru Teg Bahadur, Dhami said that the Guru attained martyrdom to protect the oppressed classes irrespective of their religion.

"Guru Teg Bahadur was undisputedly the first martyr for human rights. His martyrdom was unparalleled in world history as never before somebody had laid down life to defend the right of followers of another faith to practise their faith," said Dhami, adding that the best way to pay tributes to martyrs of the faith was to strive take their mission to its logical end.
