Sikh Panthic leaders criticise RSS chief

mann1simranjitAmritsar, Punjab: Some of the panthic leaders joined SAD (A) chief Simranjit Singh Mann in strongly criticising the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat for dreaming a Hindu Rashtra. Those present included Giani Gurbachan Singh Jathedar of the Akal Takht, Jathedar Iqbal Singh from Patna Sahib and Jathedar Balwant Singh Nandgarh from Talwandi Sabo.

During a condolence meeting in a local gurdwara held on Wednesday to pay homage to the mother of a Delhi-based granthi, former MP Mann warned that the idea of Hindu Rashtra that the RSS chief had floated may revive demand for Khalistan. There is nothing wrong in talking about Khalistan, he observed.

Launching a scathing attack on the Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal for showing reverence to top brass of the saffron party, Mann said people of Punjab fail to understand why the father-son duo (Badals) fly to New Delhi almost every week to present bouquets to the former Deputy Prime Minister LK Advani even after the latter had conceded in his book that he advised/prompted the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to go ahead with the operation Blue Star. Advani equally deserved condemnation for the unfortunate episode, he sought to opine. The Meeri Peeri sword had not been gifted by the great gurus for petty purposes, he added. Mann dared the Jathedars, who were present in the meeting, to make stand of the Panth clear on Bhagwat’s statement concerning Hindu Rashtra.

Tarsem Singh chairman of the Dharam Prachar wing of the Delhi gurdwara Prabandhak Committee said Bhagwat’s statement deserved condemnation.

If one talks of Hindu Rashtra in the sovereign country the communities of other faiths may also raise similar demand. This will lead to multi-dimensional division of the country on religious andcaste basis, he cautioned.

    Not only Hindi but English also should not be spoken in our family at home or any other member of our community at any wherein the world. It is my opinion that all education should be given in any ones’ mother tongue, because what we can understand in our mother tongue, we can not understand in any other other language irrespective of the fact how much master we may we of that language. All offical or non offical work in all fields at all levels must be done in that state’s language and we can learn Hindi and English from efficienty teachers as we learn other languages of the world. Those who respect their mother language they only can live a life of self respect. Which nations give a back to their mother language, they must lost their identity one day. World’s most countries use their mother lanuage in all fields and in all aspectes, Only a vary few countries who were slaves they shamelessly use English in their routine work and talk, in their education because allthough they are physicaly indipendent but mentelly they are slaves. WAHEGURU bless them to give full respect to their mother languages in all fields at all levels with in their juridictions. Otherwise the people who have awairness about their mother tongue they have to think all other options to make live their mother tongue.

    Dear All, Waheguru Jee Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Jee Ke Fateh, Sikh Community within should be united very strongly and this can be obtained by removing the caste system within us like Papa, Ramgadhiya, Jat etc.,etc. We all should think forward what we are going to give our new breed. We should do Anad Karaj with no caste bar of Jat, Pape etc. if one is GurSikh that shud be enough for a marriage. In mumbai in same area if you have 2 gurudwaras one is pape and other is Ramgadhiyas where is the strength of our community gone, its bifurcated. We should stop ourselves form hating each other and then we can have our roots strong and can foght any anotbodies that is destroying our community. First of all we shud stop speaking HINDI within our family which is spreading worst than AIDS teach Gurbani manings to our children so that they know wat is right and wrong then we are prepared for anything. That is all thanks for reading.

    Harinder ( ? ) ji, I agree with your views 200%. You are absolutly right.

  5. India constitution is very clear that it is a “secular country” .
    Any attempt to hijack it consttution by any community be it sikhs,hindus ,muslims ,chritians shold be resisted or we will land up in a Nazi like situation in India .

    History has a leson for all of us :—-

    In Germany, they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

  6. I fully agree that the RSS should leave it’s Hindutya slogan of Hindu Rastra. The Muslims are now more united and will give a good lesson to Hard core pseudo saffron parivar those are for Hindu Rastra. The RSS should go for Hinduism of Swami Vivakananda and not for the BJP Hindutya. This will break the country India into peaces. Sikhs willwant Khalistan and all others will come to nrw demands. Muslims will want another Pakistan and Kashmities will demand independent Kashmir. RSS should remain old timer Hinduism party of soft hindutya of Atalji.

    Thanks Sukhwinder singh ji, I also fully endorse your thinking and your views about sikh leadership. It is bad luck of sikhs that we have never a visionariiy and totaly dedicated sikh leadership. OUR SIKH LEADERSHIP HAS FORGOTTEN THE SACRIFICES AND GIVEN NO RESPECT TO SARDAR KAPOOR SINGH JI AND SARDAR DARSHAN SINGH FERUMAN. SIKH BROOTHERHOOD IS LEADERLESS.

  8. I fully support the views of Mukandpuri Ji. I also know the political necessity of Badals to Be with BJP for their political survival. Mann Sahib lost a Golden chance to provide a good alternative for Badals but due to his rigid stand Punjab and specially Sikhs lost a Chance to change equation in Punjab Politics. Sometimes we have to compromise on some matters to achieve Greater Panthic Goals but It needs leaders with farsightedness which our every leader lacs. May Waheguru Help Panth .

    IF RSS will not leave its agenda of HINDUTAVA then india could be cut into many pieces, We need a secular india and religious tolrence with other faiths. IF RSS AND BJP WILL DO INJUSTICE WITH OTHER RELIGIONS, THAN IT MAY LEAD A CIVIL WAR TYPE ATMOSPHERE IN INDIA. THINK RSS AND BJP LEADERSHIP WILLING TO HAVE A COUNTRY UNITED OR TO TORN IT IN MANY PIECES.

  10. Sikhs must unite and always condemn anti-Sikh statements. Whether we are Delhi Sikhs, Punjab Sikhs, Haryana Sikhs, and etc.
