Dera Followers ATTACK Sikhs

So Dera followers are now attacking Sikhs? Are they trying to start something? I found the following report in the news summaries, but when I went to it, I could no longer find the original at DNA India, not sure why they took it down.

The original story isn't even available when you search the DNA India website. Fortunately, if you search around the Internet, somewhere you can usually get a cached copy. Spread the word, the Dera followers are not so passive, as the media might make them out to be.

MOGA: Mistaking two motorcycle-borne Sikhs as protesters, a group of Dera Sacha Sauda followers attacked them in Daulatpura village near here on Thursday, police said.

The two youths were going to a nearby village when some Dera followers, who had gathered at a house for a religious discourse, mistook them as Sikh protesters and attacked them, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Devinder Singh Garcha said.

The two identified as Sukhjinder Singh and Raja Singh, a priest of Sadda Subh Wala village nearby, have been admitted to a local hospital.

Garcha said that since the incident was a result of misunderstanding the situation was under control. Police patrolling in the area has been intensified, he added.

The stand-off between various Sikh organisations and the Dera began after the Dera chief appeared in an attire similar to one of 10th Sikh Guru Gobind Singh, leading to violence in which a Sikh youth was killed and around 50 persons were injured.
