You're really determined to justify everything they're doing with historical precedent?
It's certainly something to remember when you're lecturing Sikhs on this forum about how we should view and treat the Mohammadens considering their treatment of us not-so long ago during the reign of their bloodthirsty empire.
Good to know.
Very true, I'd like to think some of the descriptions are outright exaggerated, or at least don't apply to every individual. Udoke, Makhu do tons for teaching Sikhs of our modern history, to associate them with Neki? I don't agree.
The issue with the organization/direction was "to many chiefs, not enough Indians." Although there were definitely a lot of rank and file kharkus, there were to many at the top vying for their way or the highway. Each leader giving different direction (vote or no vote, negotiate or not, khalistan or autonomy, samaj sudaar or no, I could go on). The organization they had, but for strategic reasons they decided to operate cells independently, which led to some going astray, or were not on the right path from the start.
Singh makes very good points for shaheed parivaars. We are lucky we have a few organizations like Ensaaf and YourSeva who do help those families. We should all donate.
I have been looking for Vangaar, Sikh Shahadat, Fatehnama etc myself. Sikh Shahadat does have a lot of archived ones. Fatehnama you can contact them from Facebook etc. Send me a DM, if I get further updates, I will let you know.
In my family, we have dozens of old magazines, I will try to get them online one day.
