  1. Found it I remembered something I wrote here 6 years ago warning everyone about a new style of divisive politics that would soon be coming our way. At that time (end of 2014) I said politicians would appear who would do and say a serious of crazy, unbelievable seemingly contradictory things that on the face of it would seem illogical but the intent would be to confuse and divide. For a while now I've been looking for that thread. At that time, I stated that the new style owes it's origins to the world of art, specifically the Russian Vladislav Surkov who went from art to politics as Putin's advisor and took his 'deconstruction' theories with him. The style has of course since then taken on a life of it's own away from art deconstruction theories with Trump and Modi taking the style to a whole new level. What recent events have shown us though is that although this politics of bat-$h1t crazyness is 99% successfull in what it seeks to do there is in the end always one thing....usually a seemingly small and insignificant thing....that causes it's downfall. With Trump we saw how he could lock children in cages and rip babies from their mothers and it didn't make any difference but in the end a flu type virus brought him to an end. With Modi we saw how he was able to steam-roll reforms against all sectors of society and with a stroke of a pen introduce Nazi type policies against his Muslim subjects at will but in the end it was farmers from Punjab who put a stop to him. 6 years ago I told you what was around the corner. Finally found that thread. Below is a link to that thread and also a snippet of what I said back then: Ghar Wapsi In Punjab - Page 3 - WHAT'S HAPPENING? - SIKH SANGAT Posted January 7, 2015 Collectively,we're not well-read and intellectual enough to understand how Putin's new idea of politics by confusion is being embraced by organisations all over the world, incuding our own UK govt. In Russia, the way Putin did it was by actively supporting, both in principle and financially, a cross-section of groups totally at odds with each other such as neo-nazi skinheads AND anti-racism groups. The idea is that you make a series of contradictory statements...do a series of contradictory things thus ensuring your enemy is in such a constant state of confusion that he no longer knows who his enemies are, thus rendering him ineffective as an opponent. This is exactly what the right wing Hindu groups in Punjab, such as the RSS have done over the last couple of weeks. They've been doing things on behalf of Sikhs...and for the benefit of Sikhism....such as converting chrstians back to Sikhism not because they are nice people. Its because they are probably 2 or 3 steps intellectually ahead of us. Let me eplain, this new 'Putin' way is spreading like wildfire across the globe. Governments and institutions (like the Hindu RSS) are embracing it fully. The beauty of it, from their point of view, is that it leaves those on the receiving end of it (as this thread demonstrates : us) so confused it (we) no longer can the good guys be distinguished from the bad guys. To find the beauty in it you have to look into the world of art, specificaly Putin's main political advisor Vladislav Surkov. Surkov came to Putin from the world of art, and he used deconstruction art principles in politics. In other worlds, he created unreal realities or real unrealities ....where good can be bad and bad can be good...so people won't even see or notice the bad things you do because you ensure their minds are permanently focussed on the good. So, no matter what you do, you will always be seen as good.

  6. PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO BEFORE YOU READ MY RESPONSE: MY RESPONSE: Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! The image of Sikhs is being deliberately tarnished by the Indian governments influence. The government is mad that Sikhs are starting to gain power outside India and want to do everything they can to keep us under their control. This idea of "Sikh Extremism" is so overblown, there was a recent study in the UK which showed that Sikh Extremism isnt even a threat. The concept of "Khalistan", a nation run on Sikh values by Sikhs, isnt something thats "extreme", its a very reasonable thing for a community to work towards, and even the Guru himself told Sikhs to be sovereign and remain independent. Even if we go back to the 1800's in Maharaja Ranjit Singhs Sikh Kingdom, we can see a liberal and secular society were minorities are accepted, and there wasn't even any death penalty. This is just a small taste of what Sikhs can contribute to the world. On the topic of Jagmeet Singh, its obvious that the Indian government wants to destroy the reputation of this Amritdhari Sikh who is allways try to push to have the 1984 Sikh Genocide officially recognized. Jagmeet Singh represents the next generation of Sikh politicians, and is seen as a role model in the Sikh youth. The Indian government is throwing false accusations at him, denied his visa, spread a lot of fake news, and they are trying to do everything they can to stop a decent minded Sikh from becoming elected, just look at the drama they caused in India when the Canadian PM visited, or the non stop hit pieces and character assassinations they do. When it comes to Baba Jarnail Singh Bhinranwale, there is proof that the Indian government pre-planned the attack on Darbar Sahib, and were planing it even before Bhindranwale entered Akal Takth. During their genocide, they attacked multiple Gurdwara's. and even destroyed the Sikh Reference Library and stole so many precious Sikh texts, some even written by the Gurus themselves. To this day the government refuses to apologize for its instigation's on genocide, and still refuses to at least give back the stolen Sikh texts. Its so obvious the 1984 genocide was engineered to destroy Sikhi.

  8. http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/india-sikh-justin-trudeau-separatism-canada-foreign-policy-a8223641.html The problem is that the Indian elite sees any demand by Sikhs for justice over the anti-Sikh pogroms in 1984 as a sign of separatism Sunny Hundal Justin Trudeau was greeted by a junior agricultural minister when he arrived in India Reuters It was meant to be a pleasant diplomatic trip with little on the agenda. A tour, a few photos, trips to the Taj Mahal and the Golden Temple. The usual. But even before Justin Trudeautouched down in India this week, the cold wind had started blowing in. The Prime Minister of India wouldn’t greet him at the airport as he has other leaders. Narendra Modi didn’t even bother sending out a welcoming tweet. Officials denied it but the word “snub” was all over the Indian press. Why have relations between India and Canada suddenly turned chilly? Blame the Sikh diaspora. The Indian government says it is concerned Trudeau is too close to Sikh separatists and their growing influence poses a threat to India’s unity. A lot of these claims are hyperbole, but they reveal a broader concern among India’s elite. Their concern is more than just about Canada. What really worries the Indian government is the prospect of Sikhs in Britain, Canada and the US getting into positions of power and challenging the abuse of Sikh civil rights in India. The Indian government mentions the revival of Sikh militancy in India too, but it is highly exaggerated. Among Indian elites there is palpable concern that Western foreign policy towards India will increasinglybe shaped by Sikhs willing to challenge its interests. Hence the alarmist talk about Sikh separatism. But the political environment is changing. There are roughly half a million Sikhs in Britain, Canada and the US each. Canadians elected 20 Sikh MPs in 2015, the highest number ever. There are four Sikh cabinet ministers including Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, and the unofficial leader of the opposition party NDP, Jagmeet Singh, is also a Sikh. In Britain two visibly Sikh MPs were elected just last year and both have embraced Sikh issues with gusto. American Sikhs are a much smaller proportion of the population, but most of them are concentrated in California and many are working to mobilise them too. It’s merely a matter of time before American Sikhs become more politically prominent too. These elected officials are far from Sikh separatists. Trudeau’s ministers are proud Canadian citizens who serve their own country. None has called for an independent Sikh state, let alone agitated for one. So why the accusations? Sikh separatists exist; there is little doubt about that. Nor is there any doubt about their antagonism towards India (which I do not share). In recent weeks, over a hundred Sikh gurdwaras in the West have explicitly banned Indian officials on government business, claiming internal interference and citing the arrest of British citizen Jagtar Singh Johal. But the popularity of a Sikh state is much exaggerated, not just by the Indian establishment but separatists themselves. The problem is this: Indian elite sees any demand by Sikhs for justice over the anti-Sikh pogroms in 1984 as a sign of separatism. Last year Ontario’s state parliament passed a motion describing the events of 1984 as a “genocide” against Sikhs. The Indian media, which largely prefers the term “riots” (as a way to continue the pretence that both Sikhs and Hindus were to blame), cited the motion as proof that Sikh separatism was growing in Canada. But if raising awareness of human rights abuses is a sign of separatism, India may as well condemn all Sikhs. I have no desire to see an independent Khalistan – the name and the objective of the Sikh nationalist movement. Yet coming from a Sikh family I’m painfully aware of what hundreds of thousands of Sikhs went through in 1984 and afterwards. The Indian government is shooting itself in the foot. Younger diaspora Sikhs are more attached to their religious identity than their parents and are more willing to speak out. But neither of India’s major parties will openly admit that Sikhs were systematically targeted in 1984, let alone deliver justice 30 years later. They prefer living in denial, thus fanning the flames of anger and giving further ammunition to separatists. If the government went further in assuaging anger over 1984 it would easily undercut the Sikh separatists’ narrative. Most Sikhs call for a Khalistan not because they want to live in a theocracy but because they want a state where their Sikh brethren are treated equally and with dignity. They want a state that will protect Sikhs, not cover up thousands of extrajudicial killings. Instead India is going in the opposite direction: the rise of the Hindu nationalist Hindutva movement has minorities more concerned about their safety than ever before. Justin Trudeau won’t leave India feeling dejected or snubbed – au contraire, his main aim was to learn more about the background of Canadian Sikhs. The rise of Jagmeet Singh is a bigger concern for the Canadian PM than the Indian media. Instead it is India that has lost out from this cackhanded diplomacy. It could have used this opportunity to mend fences with Sikhs and grow trade with Canada but it has done neither
  9. Justin Trudeau has been snubbed by the senior members of the Modi BJP Government. In fact this stretches to not just the Political Party but also to the Indian Media. No senior officials have welcomed or accompanied Trudeau during his tour of Gujarat or Agra. Amritsar on the other hand has shown great hospitality to Trudeau with the SGPC, Akali Dal and Congress senior Politicians all eagerly greeting him and his family to the city and Darbar Sahib. The treatments of Trudeau is all very public and the questions of ‘Khalistan’ and the Canadian stance on the subject is all over the news now. Even Captain Arminder couldn’t resist bringing up the subject in his brief meeting at the Taj hotel today. He also had the nerve to accuse Canadian Sikhs of financing militancy in Punjab and directing targeted assassinations. Modi is scheduled to meet Justin Trudeau during the week and we can all expect to hear the same sound bites. Will Sikhs in Canada be sacrificed for trade between the two countries and what will Justin Trudeau make of his trip to India?
  10. What are your thoughts on this recent article? https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/sikh-separatists-in-canada-drawing-ire-in-indian-media-before-trudeau-visit-1.3792889 Here are my thoughts: You know you are on the wrong side of history, when you attack freedom of speech. "Sikh relgious sucessionism"? LoL! Have they ever read Sikh history or Gurbani? Its common sense to those who are educated on Sikhi that the Sikh Panth is meant to be distinct from others and be independent. The Khalsa is literally meant to be a sovereign army and institution all in one, that only answer's to the Guru, that by itself isnt legal in another country, and its a pretty obvious hint that the Guru clearly taught Sikhs to be independent, but of course. But of course all this means nothing becuase most "Sikhs" in India dont support it, which must mean its a radical idea, even if its backed up by history and bani... Of course its going to come up coincidentally when a Prime Minister visits India, what better time to attack Sikhs. One could make the argument that the Indian government lets Hindu right wing national movements flourish, and there's actually proof that India got a German official to spy on Sikhs. Or what about that time that that. If you wanna talk about state sponsored terrorism. there's a lot of accusations India has gotten, but the problem with them is that they dont care. Read article: German official charged with spying on Sikhs for India : https://www.thelocal.de/20160920/german-official-charged-with-spying-on-sikhs-for-india India State Sponsored Terrorism: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State-sponsored_terrorism#India Amarinder Sengh is a meme at this point, he will say anything to tarnish the reputations of Sikhs abroad. He is salty that international Sikhs are making it, and that him and his third world government are losing their power over the Sikh community. At this point, who cares what that ladoo has to say? its obvious hes doing this as part of his personal smear campaign.
  11. Just so people know where he stands on the current Indian establishment. Here's an old interview (2014) by Trump about India. Very interesting.
  12. https://m.facebook.com/Encounters-Collective-1548308148780353/ this page has got recordings of Malhi saying that Modi is good to talk to because he hasn't killed Sikhs and that going to Wembley party on his own was kirpa and for the Sikh prisoners. He tries to justify using his dastar as a photo object at the beck and call of his hindutva masters as well. Geezers sick in the head and represents us? Smh....
  13. PM underlines message of harmony on Guru Nanak Jayanti Guru Nanak Jayanti also known as Gurpurab & Prakash Utsav marks the birthday of the first Sikh Guru Guru Nanak Press Trust of India | New Delhi November 25, 2015 Last Updated at 16:00 IST Prime Minister Narendra Modi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at the Gurbani Recital on the occasion of the 547th Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Devji at Rashtrapati Bhavan Cultural Centre in New Delhi. Photo: PTI On the occasion of Guru Nanak's birthday, Prime MinisterNarendra Modi today underlined the message of harmony and compassion propagated by the founder of Sikhism, a message that assumes significance in the midst of "intolerance" debate. "On Guru Nanak Jayanti, my greetings to everyone. Guru Nanak Dev's message of service, compassion and harmony inspire eternally," Modi tweeted. The Prime Minister's message assumes significance in view of the "intolerance" debate, which has been further fueled by film star Aamir Khan's remarks that he was "alarmed" by a number of incidences and his wife Kiran Rao had wondered if they should move out of India. Guru Nanak Jayanti also known as Gurpurab and Prakash Utsav marks the birthday of the first Sikh Guru Guru Nanak. It is one of the most sacred festivals in Sikhism and is celebrated by Hindus also with equal fervour.On Guru Nanak Jayanti, my greetings to everyone. Guru Nanak Dev's message of service, compassion & harmony inspire eternally. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) November 25, 2015
  14. As most of you are aware, a lavish welcome party is being prepared to welcome Modi to the UK, with 60,000 people expected in Wembley Stadium on 13th November. Sounds rather premature to celebrate a prime minister of a country whereby 50% still defecate in the open air and rape of women has become a hobby. However, if Modi's fan's feel they have something to celebrate, that's their business. BUT! Are you aware that 3 Labour MP's have pledged to donate their salary increase (£7,000) to help fund the welcome party? Stephen Pound (Ealing North), Keith Vaz (Leicester East) and Virender Sharma (Ealing Southall) have all pledged £7k each? It was reported that Seema Malhotra (Feltham Heston) was to also donate her salary increase but she has released a statement pledging to donate her salary increase to an apprenticeship scheme. If individuals wish to donate to the Modi welcome party, I don't have an issue. But a parliamentarian is paid from the public purse. I have an issue with this! This Modi frenzy is peculiar, especially from the Labour party. Modi has attacked worker's rights by reducing the Labour laws from 44 to 4 - I'm sure Jeremy Corbyn will have something to say about that. In Gujarat, inequality has increased under his chief ministership (although overall prosperity increased) - again, not something that will impress Labour (UK). Modi's former school of hard knocks, the RSS, have fascist and racist ideologies - something that should concern any parliamentarian, Labour or otherwise. If you live in Ealing North, Ealing Southall (at least 1/3 Sikh), or Leicester East - please take this up with your respective MP.

  16. (April 17, 2015)—Moninder Singh, a well-respected Sikh youth activist was arrested earlier today during a protest outside Ross Street Gurdwara in Vancouver. A number of Sikh youth, along with representative of various organizations arrived outside the Gurdwara to protest the arrival of Modi for his role in massacres of Muslims in Gujarat. Modi Government is also responsible for carrying out attacks on various other minorities in India. Jakara Movement, a Sikh Youth organization stated that Moninder Singh was arrested for exercising freedom of speech. Canadian police also threatened to arrest others who were at the Gurdwara. Moninder Singh was asked to leave by the police, however he refused and continued to protest peacefully when he was arrested. Sangat members were denied entry to the Gurdwara by the police. “We are being asked to leave the premises. We are denying, we are rejecting the police telling us to move. They are gearing up to push us out,” said a youth outside the Ross Street Gurdwara.

  17. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾ॥ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਿਹ॥ Visa Denial to Red Carpet for Narendra Modi - A downward shift in Canadian policy and ethics The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, played a decisive role to teach a lesson to the greater Muslim community during the anti Muslim riots in Gujrat in 2002. At that time a senior member of the Gujrat Intelligence Bureau Mr. Sanjiv Bhatt filed an affidavit that CM Modi told all authorities to allow the Hindu community to vent out their anger at the Muslim population. This all took place in a high profile security meeting. “A senior police officer's sworn statement to India's Supreme Court alleges that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi deliberately allowed anti-Muslim riots in the state” - BBC. This was one of the reasons that the Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act denied an entry visa to then Chief Minister of Gujrat Narendra Modi. So did the United States of America. Narendra Modi served in senior leadership of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, as he was part of the Sangh Privar (family) before entering politics. When Modi was elected Prime Minister of India, his crimes were wiped off. Ironically, the United States of America jumped first in queue to congratulate him and invite him to USA for a state visit. Niti Central, a liberal perspective of news wrote in August 2013 “Earlier this week, on July 30, news came in about a report by the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) which stated that the Gujarat Government had ‘prima facie’ discriminated against the 500-member Sikh community in Kutch. A Hindustan Times report quoted NCM member Ajaib Singh, a Sikh, as stating in his report that “Modi, who has the habit of terrorising the minorities in Gujarat, was in this case victimising the Sikh farmers.” Despite, his atrocious past, the Canadian Government has invited PM Narendra Modi on a state visit, and facilitated his social invasion of religious place i.e. Gurdwaras and Mandirs to accommodate Modi. This is a question that Canadians don`t ask today, the history will ask our Government in days to come that the intolerant Hindutava Movement was promoted by the Canadian Government. Hindutva is perceived by intellectuals as a threat to the stability of India due to their increasing influence and their religious fanaticism. The Government of Canada shall never trade human values with dollar values. There is no harm to stay the course with your values oppose to deal with oppressor, make money yet be flexible on human rights principles. Politics or Economy does not make Canada the best country in the World, our track record as a Human Rights defender has. How will the state visit of a known Human Rights violator fit in fabric of Canadian values? This is a question that begs an answer.
  18. 1984 anti-Sikh riots: Centre announces Rs 5L compensation to kin of 3325 victims Zee Media Bureau/Ritesh K Srivastava New Delhi: In a significant move, the Narendra Modi government on Thursday announced compensation of Rs 5 lakh each to be given to the kin of 3325 people killed during anti-Sikh riots in the national capital in 1984. The order was passed by Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who took the decision after a high-level meeting where the issue of compensation to civilian victims of communal, terrorist or Naxal violence was discussed threadbare, a Home Ministry official said. Government also enhanced the compensation to civilian victims of communal, terrorist or Naxal violence from Rs three lakh to Rs five lakh. Till now the next of kin of persons killed or civilians who suffered permanent incapacitation as a result of such violence were paid Rs 3 lakh as per provisions of the Central Scheme for Assistance to Civilian Victims of Terrorist, Communal, Naxal violence since 2008. Assistance would be given to the surviving spouse in case of death or permanent incapacitation of the husband or the wife, as the case may be. However, if both the husband and the wife died in same incident of violence, the family would be entitled to get the assistance, in each case, the official said. Families of the victims would be eligible to get assistance under the scheme even if they have received any other assistance, by way of payment of ex-gratia or any other type of relief from the government or any other source except when a similar scheme is already being implemented by the Central government. Government had disbursed Rs 6.12 crore as compensation to civilian victims in 204 incidents of terrorist, communal and naxal violence in 2011-12 and Rs 3.99 crore to civilian victims in 133 such incidents in 2012-13. No reimbursement could be made to any civilian victims in incidents of terrorist, communal and Naxal violence during 2013-14 and 2014-15 (till July) as the state governments did not send the proposals. Nearly 3325 people were killed in the communal riots triggered by the assassination of former prime minister Indira Gandhi in 1984 by her body guards. http://zeenews.india.com/news/india/1984-anti-sikh-riots-centre-announces-rs-5l-compensation-to-kin-of-3325-victims_1491630.html ਸਾਂਨੂੰ ਇਹਨਾਂ ਨੇ ਸੱਚੀ ਕੁੱਤਾ ਸਮਝਿਆ ਹੋਇਆ | ਪਹਿਰਾ ਦੇਣ ਵਾਲਾ ਕੁੱਤਾ, ਜਦੋਂ ਭੌਂਕੇ ਤਾਂ ਇੱਕ ਅੱਦਾ ਟੁੱਕੜ ਸੁੱਟ ਦਿਓ, ਬਾਕੀ ਸਮਾਂ ਆਪਣੇ ਘਰ ਦੀ ਇਹਨਾਂ ਤੋਂ ਰਾਖੀ ਕਰਾ ਛੱਡੋ | Its clear, they are not going to ever deliver justice, just throw alms at the Sikhs as if we are beggars/dogs.

  20. Washington: A New York-based Sikh rights group, which had earlier campaigned against Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh, has launched an online petition campaign urging President Barack Obama to cancel invitation to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the 2002 communal riots in Gujarat. "Instead of hosting Modi at White House, President Obama should condemn Modi and ban BJP for perpetrating violence against Muslims, Sikhs and Christians," said the White House online petition which was launched by the Sikh for Justice. Obama has invited Modi to visit the US and for a meeting with him at the White House on September 30. "In June 1984, BJP instigated military attack on the Golden Temple resulting in the massacre of thousands of Sikh pilgrims. In 2008, BJP orchestrated violence against Christians in Orissa," the petition alleges. The petition, requires at least 100,000 signatures by August 20 to gain any attention of the White House, on the first day had got less than two dozen petitions. The SFJ had campaigned against Gandhi and Singh in connection with the anti-Sikh riots of 1984 following the assassination of the then prime minister Indira Gandhi.

  21. NEW DELHI: At a time when the special cell and the intelligence bureau (IB) are probing the Punjab connection of Gurvinder Singh, arrested in Tuesday's accident which killed Union minister Gopinath Munde, security agencies have alerted police agencies of Delhi and other states and the protection groups (SPG and NSG) about the threat assessment of top BJP and RSS leaders who stand at risk from Punjab-based Sikh militant groups. As per a communique, agencies have received fresh inputs about Jagtar Singh Tara of Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF) and Lakhvir Singh Rode of International Sikh Youth Federation (ISYF) coming together to smuggle in explosives from across the border and provide logistics to target BJP leaders, sources said. The agencies had received inputs about the two organizations planning to target Modi rallies before the elections as well. Moreover, the agencies have received fresh information about two groups of 10-15 militants belonging to the Khalistan Commando Force planning attacks on PM Modi and other top leaders of the Sangh and BJP. "A meeting to target Modi was held recently in Islamabad which was attended by Dr. Khalid Rashid and Md. Ghalib from UK, Azmat Khan from JKLF and Wadhwa Singh of BKI," reads the communique. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/BJP-Sangh-leaders-face-terror-threat/articleshow/36081930.cms
  22. Modi booked on EC orders for poll code violation, faces up to 2 years in jail AHMEDABAD/NEW DELHI: An FIR was lodged against Narendra Modi for violation of the model code of conduct after he displayed a lotus, the BJP's election symbol, before TV cameras and addressed a press conference on the premises of the school where he cast his vote on Wednesday. He also snapped a selfie which was flashed on TV. Along with Modi, TV channels too that telecast Modi's presser earned the EC's wrath, which directed the chief secretary and DGP to file separate FIRs against all TV channels for falling foul with the Representation of People's Act that bans telecast of election issues while polling is on. Later, at a rally in Tirupati, Modi said it was the first FIR of his life and he would never forget the day. He lashed out at Congress, saying it was worried that "a person who (once) eked out his living by selling tea" was challenging it. "One can understand if someone points a knife, a pistol or a gun. But do you know why FIR was registered against me? Because I showed a lotus to the people," he said. The FIR was lodged by the Ahmedabad crime branch after the EC wrote to the Gujarat chief secretary and director general of police after watching TV footage. "The tone and tenor of the address made by Modi, and the manner in which he displayed the lotus symbol, was intended and calculated to influence and affect the result of elections," the EC said. The violations by Modi, if proved, entail a fine and/or imprisonment of up to two years. The BJP, while saying it respects the EC's order and will abide by its ruling, defended Modi by pointing out that he wasn't at fault as he was away from the prohibited zone of the polling booth. "He has not violated the election code as it was not an organised press conference," BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said, adding, "EC is a constitutional body and we respect it." Asked for his reaction, BJP leader Arun Jaitley said, "If the EC has sought FIR against TV channels for asking questions then the legality of the issue is in question." Congress congratulated the EC for the action against Modi with Union law minister Kapil Sibal saying, "By showing the party symbol and urging people to vote for lotus, Modi has proved that he has nothing to do with ethics and laws. He is an opportunist and he can do whatever he wishes to." The party also asked the EC to cancel Modi's candidature from both Vadodara and Varanasi. AAP joined issue with a statement, "The EC's direction to register an FIR against Modi is only an indication of habitual offences being committed by him and the BJP." Modi came out of the polling booth at Nishan school at Ranip, which falls in L K Advani's constituency, waving his inked finger at the cheering crowds. He then took a selfie with his cellphone, displaying the 'lotus' symbol, and took questions from TV reporters flashing the lotus in his hand. When Advani was asked by journalists after he had voted to comment, he declined saying he would not violate the law. Gujarat DGP PC Thakur said, "The Ahmedabad police has submitted an action-taken report to the EC after registering FIR." According to EC sources, an impromptu byte by Modi to TV crew would have been okay; however, holding a "well organized" 20-minute-long press meet outside the polling station, aired live on most TV channels, amounted to a deliberate attempt to influence the mind of voters while polling was underway, sources said. The EC's prompt action was in sharp contrast to its failure to file an FIR under similar circumstances during the BJP's manifesto release on April 7. Although CEC V S Sampath had made it clear beforehand that the telecast of BJP's manifesto release while polling was underway for six Lok Sabha seats would make electronic media liable for action under Section 126(1)(b) of the RP Act, no action was taken when most TV channels covered the event live. Sources said there was some reluctance on EC's part to initiate action against TV channels as the polling on April 7 was limited to just six seats and there would be no wide impact on the mind of the voters. Later, senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "Media being free has the right to seek answers from the leader who, in all probability, is going to become the prime minister. Action against the media raises larger question of constitutionality. But, I pity the Congress, seeing the severe reversal, it has reduced itself to a chronic complainant."

  23. Former DGP of Punjab KPS Gill, who had served as security advisor to the Gujarat chief minister in 2002, has said that Narendra Modi cannot be blamed for post-Godhra riots as it is the job of the police leadership to respond to law and order situations. "In law and order situations, it is the police leadership which has to respond and not the political leadership," Gill said when asked by reporters about his assessment of Modi's handling of post-Godhra events. He was speaking at the launch of his biography- 'KPS Gill: The Paramount Cop' last night, which was attended by eminent personalities like Punjab Kesari Group editor-in-chief Vijay Kumar Chopra, Indian Express editor-in-chief Shekhar Gupta, former CBI director PC Sharma and others. In the book, Gill has lavished praise on Modi saying he had "sincere" intentions to end the violence and accused other parties of trying to defame him. "I realised that people of all political parties who were anti-Modi and anti-BJP were taking advantage of this mayhem and making all efforts to defame Modi one way or the other," he says. He charged the policemen and the administration had become communal after the incident in Godhra and Modi, who had just become the chief minister, did not have proper grip over the state machinery. Speaking to reporters, he said that after taking charge as the security advisor of the state, he had visited all places where violence had taken place and policemen from top to bottom refuted having received any direction of the type being mentioned. He also said a majority of the deaths in the riots had taken place in 5-6 incidents. Addressing the audience, Gill said some of his family members did not like his comments. He told reporters that while his family members had been reading newspapers, he had experienced the developments. Gill had been appointed in May, 2002, as the security advisor to Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi to bolster efforts to effectively check communal violence in the state. Vijay Kumar Chopra, editor-in-chief of Punjab Kesari, lauded Gill's stint as DGP of Punjab and said he had "infused a new life in a lifeless police force". Comparing Gill with legendary Sikh general Hari Singh Nalwa, Chopra said he has been a big factor in restoring normalcy in the state wracked by militancy in 1980s. Shekhar Gupta said he had the fortune to be a fellow traveller who witnessed Gill as a police officer in Assam where his reading of ground reality was far more realistic than those around him. He added that in his interactions with Gill during his reporting years, he realised that even in Punjab he could diagnose and predict situations with great clarity. PC Sharma said Gill thoroughly backed officers who had worked under him. The biographer Rahul Chandan said he had grown up in Punjab and heard stories about Gill and felt he had engaged in a worthwhile pursuit. http://www.hindustantimes.com/india-news/modi-can-t-be-blamed-for-post-godhra-riots-kps-gill/article1-1146122.aspx
  24. Modi tells Sikhs to leave their property and Land and go back to the Punjab as they are not Gujarati. This is the man that could be next PM and a party that the Badal Dal are supporting. It show that the Congress and the BJp are the same with their hate for Sikhs. Meanwhile the Badals are to terrified to raise the plight of the Sikhs in Guarat forcefully , similarly to their silence on Police killings. A report by the National Commission for Minorities (NCM), India's minority rights watchdog, has said the Narendra Modi-led Gujarat government had "prima facie" discriminated against the state's 500-member Sikh community in Kutch by ordering them to sell their land and return to Punjab because they were not Gujaratis, citing the Bombay Tenancy and Agricultural Lands Act, 1948. The commission has strongly disapproved of the Gujarat government's interpretation that only Gujarati farmers could own or buy land in the state under the Act, a move which could dispossess 500 farmers, while their land accounts have already been frozen. In his report, commission member Ajaib Singh, after a field visit on June 24-28, 2013, said, "There appears to be discrimination against Sikh agriculturalists by the Gujarat government". The report quoted Ajaib Singh's statement that "Modi, who has the habit of suppressing and terrorising the minorities of Gujarat, was in this case targeting and victimising the Sikh farmers of Kutch". The minority commission said the order of the state government, asking farmers to sell their land and return to Punjab, was struck down unanimously in the Gujarat high court unanimously, but the state government had now challenged this verdict in the Supreme Court. The commission itself could not do much since the issue was under judicial consideration, the report said. In a recommendatory letter to Modi, the commission has asked the Gujarat government to accept the verdict of the high court. He also requested him to administer a national minority scholarship programme and urgently set up a state minorities commission. Ajaib Singh has also written to Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal to intervene in the matter. "This is indeed very discriminatory," said the NCM member. He said Sikhs told him during his field visit that the community had migrated to Kutch after being invited by former prime minister late Lal Bahadur Shastri, who felt these swathes of white marshy land should be inhabited as a buffer against invasion from the sea.
