|1930||Firing at the
Sees Ganj, Delhi.
The police fired on Gurudwara Sees Ganj, Delhi. Congress workers
had entered the Gurdwara premises and were throwing brickbats on
police. In retaliation, the police fired, when the bullets hit Guru
Granth Sahib. This caused widespread resentment among the Sikhs.
The SGPC launched a campaign for boycott and picketing of foreign
cloth shops in protest against this firing. Though Kharak Singh
sought to maintain a distinct identity of the Sees Ganj agitation,
it certainly gave strength to the Civil Disobedience Movement. Sikhs
contributions to this movement was disproportionately large.
