Badal Draws Flak From Sikh Bodies Over Award, Bjp Want Badal To Receive Nobel Peace Prize


Recommended Posts

Various Sikh organisations have reacted sharply to the Akal Takht Jathedar's announcement to award Panth Rattan Faqr-e-Qaum to Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal at Anandpur Sahib yesterday.

Former SGPC secretary and Shiromani Panthic Council chairman Manjeet Singh Calcutta, in a release issued here today, termed the announcement as "unprincipled" and said among Sikhs such an award was given to an individual for his services to the "Panth". He said there are several deserving Sikhs like Bhai Veer Singh, Bhai Kahan Singh Nabha, Prof Jodh Singh and Prof Mohan Singh who have served the religion immensely.

"If Badal has been given this award merely for raising memorials, then there are many Babas who have done a great contribution with their kar sewa," he said.

DSGMC chief Paramjit Singh Sarna said the five Sikh high priests should tell the community as to why they should feel proud of Badal. "Should we be proud of the fact that Sikhism is on the decline in Punjab under the SAD-ruled SGPC?" said Sarna. "Golden Temple's Head Granthi Bhai Jaswinder Singh himself stated at Anandpur Sahib yesterday that 90 to 95 per cent Sikh youth in Punjab had become 'patit' (apostate)."

Dal Khalsa spokesperson Kanwarpal Singh said the announcement had led to mockery of the significance of the award. Addressing the media in Hoshiarpur, he said, “Badal is not Faqr-e-quam (pride of the community) but fiqr-e-quam (headache for the community).”

SAD (1920) senior vice-president Raghubir Singh Rajasansi said the Jathedar should review the matter.

Meanwhile, Khalra Mission Organisation chief Harmandeep Singh Sarhali said the Sikh Panth would never acknowledge the award bestowed upon the CM as it was against the teachings of Sikh Gurus. He accused Badal of "rewarding the officials who worked against Sikh interests in the 1984 Operation Bluestar and the subsequent turbulent days of militancy in Punjab".

BJP for Nobel to CM

BJP leader Tikshan Sud has sought Nobel Peace Prize for Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal for his “service to humanity as well as world peace during his political career”.

the same individual who sant baba jarnail singh went to to stop the anti-sikh narakhdhari gathering in amritsar and allowed the massacre that day to take place. the same individual who gave the go ahead for the army attack on sri darbar sahib. the same individual who promised for ensaaf for the killings of sikh youth in the 80's and the 90s but instead protected the killers. The same individual who whilst warned gave the go ahead of the noormalia gathering in ludhiana which led to the vicious attacks on sikhs. The list is endless, the police follow what badal says and orders and we all know the tortore and fake encounters that they are responsible for. that says enough.

His whole family are intoxicated with power and do whatever possilbe to gain that seat. He is using individuals with prominance in the country and the media to programme the people of punjab to see him as a hero and icon for the state which he is not, but as most of us in the west know him as a power hungry villain in sikh uniform.

The heritage of Sikhi is built with the blood and sacrifice of our Great Gurus and Shaheeds.

It can not be built by patit Panth dokhees such as Badal who have taken every opportunity since 1978 to suppress the true Sikh Spirit.

At a physical level, those who have visited the complex state that it is a cheap expo on Punjabi culture and NOT Sikh culture.

Even the design of the building has nothing to do with Sikhi.

The "Virast-e-Khalsa" stunt is a shameful event for the Sikh quam.

Badal is Panthic Enemy #1, and this function was all about promoting this Panthic enemy in the upcoming elections.

Those who promoted this function (including the puppet Jathedars, gutless Nihangs, and sadhs (akhautee sants) will always be remembered for their treachery.

By siding with Badal they have proved that they are walking and talking ਮੁਰਦੇ (zombies) with no conscious -because death of the conscious IS REAL DEATH.

For the sake of saving face with their Akali/BJP/RSS masters, these self-serving cronies have turned their backs to the proud heritage of Sikhi - this is something the Panth should never forget, just as we have not forgotten the likes of Arroor Sinh, Zail Sinh, and others.

why not give badal the nobel peace prize? It's not the first time it has been given to someone who has had lots of people killed.

When badal was CM of Panjab in 1970 Akali Govt, there was a movement by some communist factions which turned violent, known as the naxalite movement. badal ordered the police to kill these naxalites and claim they were killed in encounters. YES! the present cm of panjab was the one who started the extra-judicial killings of political opponents, at least a decade before bluestar/akali morcha. False police encounters started by a so-called akali.

I have hope that in the future when Sikhi is in full glory, this honour (if awarded to Badal) will be withdrawn and nullified. This will only happen when the Sikh leaders and jathedars will have the principles and courage to do what is right instead of standing around in the background twiddling their thumbs.

    • I think you've been unable to read between the lines and grasp the subtext of the article. It's a clear attempt at pitting Sikhs against some nebulous form of Islam, by equating medieval Mughal expansionism with its various contemporary terror-related forms. British-penned propaganda or a general West vs Islam perspective, it's doing exactly what you constantly highlight on this forum about us being "recruited" by outsiders as fodder.  The playful and almost throwaway tone of the article and its vernacular is also cringeworthy. Am I suggesting we leap into bed with Islam and its adherents? No. But I don't like attempts by outsiders trying to mine our painful and blood-soaked history to manipulate us into following whatever current strand of policy they've devised against one of the existential dangers facing them. Equally, intention counts for a lot. If the guy's aim was to flatter Sikhs and shed light on a quaint and once-proud warrior race, then fair enough. But I don't take things like this on face value. There's always a purpose behind it however faint. Your cheap little attempts at psycho-analysing and shaming me into conforming to your worldview isn't working and it never will. EDIT: Having just flicked through the website from which the article originates my suspicions were correct. It's a moderately right-leaning Spectator-esque online zine.
    • No, I just think you constantly over analyse the wrong stuff. This is just some simple bod 'boosted' interpretation of Sikh history from a purely physical perspective (as opposed to spiritual). What it seems to be trying to do is amplify Sikh bravery and independence in a very simplistic manner.  It's not dissimilar to what I've heard Sikh street guys talking just prior to going out to kick off with another group.  I don't think you can read very well, compared to a lot of stuff, at least this piece somewhat underscores a perspective that doesn't co-opt Sikhs to other causes. And if a brit white guy wrote this (below), he'd be being more honest than the vast majority of the rest of his people (even though the guy is obviously ignorant of the modern nature of the Sikh army under Sikh raj with his swords against canons comment). If he was a proper brit he'd be telling us about how grateful our lot were to be subjugated and used and abused by the colonialists: The Sikhs were better fighters than the Moghuls, when the numbers and the guns were anything like equal, and by the time the Brits arrived, they’d carved out their own state in the Punjab. They fought the Brits twice, swords against cannon, and were slaughtered, then flattered, then coopted—the classic Imperial method of dealing with brave but dumb cannon fodder, as in “Our dear Highlanders,” cannon fodder in cute kilts. 
    • So why would you want to keep dragging them back here, then?
    • If it was confirmed that a British white guy wrote that piece, you'd be all over it, castigating it as establishment propaganda designed to get us to fight under the banners of ex-imperial powers for their modern colonial escapades. You're very selective with what you choose to object to: it's not the actual substance of the message that annoys you but the vessel in which the message is delivered, yes?
    • I just think it's a simplified narrative designed to inspire a bit of fearlessness in Sikhs. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.  There will always be some people who will misinterpret and maybe fly off the handle due to their own personality traits, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't have such accounts.  I tend to see these things as stepping stones or entry points for people to explore the ithihaas/culture in more depth.
