Sikhs must Introspect: Akal Takhat Jathedar

Recommended Posts

The Akal Takht chief, Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh, today asked "Sikhs occupying high posts" to introspect in the light of the court verdict acquitting Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in a riots case.


In a statement, the Jathedar said; " Sikhs, who are at the helm of affairs, and have deliberately shut their eyes, should wake up to the reality and put an end to the injustice meted out to the community."


He also directed the Punjab Government, the SGPC and the DSGMC to take the battle up to the apex court and bring the guilty to book. He termed the court verdict as "grave injustice" to the Sikh community.


Activists of the Sikh Students' Federation (Mehta) held a protest march against the court verdict. The protesters, led by the federation's district unit chief Amarbir Singh Dhot, burnt the effigy of the UPA chairperson.


Addressing the protesters, Dhot alleged successive Congress governments at the Centre had shielded the perpetrators of the anti-Sikh riots and rewarded them with important posts.

Maybe he should wake up himself and do something.

Did anyone watch the Sikh Channel yesterday? There were these two Gurdwara pardhans interviewed, one was from Ealing Sikh Centre and the other one was from Hounslow Gurdwara. They gave some good facts and their views were interesting up to a point until the interviewer asked why isn't Manmohan Singh doing anything on the Sajjan Kumar issue? Then they totally did an about face and claimed-;

1. Manmohan Singh has no power, he will get blocked by his cabinet if he does anything to help the Sikhs

2. He is the PM of all of India, not just the Sikhs (this is totally laughable)

The interviewer then asked why then does he not resign. The instant retort was-;

1. What will Sikhs get out of him resigning

2. Him being PM is giving the Sikhs a high profile around the world

This shows that the Gurdwara pardhans are not on the same page as the Sangat. I have yet to come across a Sikh who has defended MMS. Most would not be bothered if the Indian govt removed him. What the Pardhans do not realise is that just as him being PM may give Sikhs a high profile, him being the PM also makes the human rights abuse of Sikhs more difficult for us to present to govts abroad because they invariable say, but the PM is a Sikh.

If MMS suddenly gets his ankh back and somehow threatens to resign unless a SIT like in the Gujerat riots case is set for the victims of 1984, it would cause a serious embarrassment for the Indian system. The stock market would likely lose 300 points in a few minutes as foreign companies reassess whether they should invest in India.

one thing we have to understand is manmohan singh is not a sikh he is a congress party secularist atheist believer. He knows if he gives up the immoral unethical indian political system he and his family wont have the same power and luxarious lifestyle they have the same thing is with the badals and captain amrindar singh. The akal takht jathedhar is inept but trys his best only when enough pressure is applied to make him take a stand otherwise he is under the control of cowardly crooked sly politicians like punjabs badal and sgpc cheif makker

What sikhs need to understand is a REAL sikh leader is one who has suffered in his/her life and takes action for the benefit for the Sikh community. Manmohan singh can if he wanted to make a speech and say his conscious does not permit him to continue as PM of india with such injustice against a minority community that im from. But no he doesn't and it is clear he is not a Sikh he just does his bit to show he is a Sikh to keep the heat of sonia gandhi (foreign born Italian) until her son is able to take her place.

We need to ensure all our energies now goes towards credible Sikh leaders who talk and fight for azaadi thats only way Sikhs stand a chance out of the mafia run corrupt indian system

Spot-on. Manmohan Singh has done great things for India (his economic reforms which ended the Licence Raj for one which, you could argue, precipitated the economic growth India is enjoying). But as a Sikh his record is sadly lacking. I'm not surprised.

Again, Jathedaar Saab seems to be speaking for Badal. If he is so serious, he should clearly say people occupying high posts like Mr Badal, should introspect and put an ened to injustice by removing the likes of Sumedh Saini from his position and putting them in jail.

    • There are so many different denominations of Christianity but the church is Pentacostalist. I have heard of it, but never knew what it actually is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentecostalism This particular brand of Christianity is not really about the bible, but it seems to be more believing in the spirit of Jesus and uttering words or something and baptisms. I have provided the link, but it would be interesting that other than the money/bribe aspect, what kind of things would entice Punjabis into Pentacostalism. This whispering uttering of certain words and having spirits entering you and excorcising spirits seem to be very popular in Sub-Saharan Africa, sounds very shamanistic. From a Punjabi context, what existing practices would find similarity with this brand of Christianity that Punjabis would be enticed.
    • Well, instead of hiding behind anonymous votes like a bunch of cowards, they should come out and say it straight. Though I suppose these "naa-mard" wouldn't have a problem if this happened to their sister or daughter.  But coming back to the original post, this unfortunately isn't an isolated case. This is why in Afghanistan, Sikh and Hindu girls are married off very young, because there are a fair few in the Muslim majority with a paedophile mindset who would think it's ok to kidnap an underage unmarried non-muslim girl and "marry" her. 
    • Standing up and for ur comrades in arms is also a good quality, that turns to peer pressure and cowardiceness.  But its not only police who are guilty of it. Moh attacks everyone. People will lie to protect their family, their cult, their religion and their brothers in arms.  In fact, thats what happened in panjab during kharkoo (militant) times. If you read Khalistan by cynthia mehmoud, that was the only crime she could find done by sikh seperatists. That one sikh would take bombs into crowded marketplaces to kill hindus, and none of the members of his team condemned him. She asked them if it was wrong to kill innocents, they said yes. But they wouldn't comdemn him. They said he is one of ours, a brother.  Panjabi Sikh people will be the last to support any ideological movement. Because they have suffered from ideology alot. First in 1947, they were promised a  better nation, just for sikhs. And how many innocent sikhs got butchered? Then in 1984 to 1995, while the kharkhoos and rebels enjoyed glorius shaheedis, it was the common folk who suffered dehydration, curfews, torture, army rule, becoming orphans and a loss of economy. Most sikhs at heart are secularist and scared stiff of religious ideologues who can ignite another doomed revolution and entice their children to early death.  That is why most sikh people judge movements by their effect on the common people not their ideology. It doesnt matter what equalities are promised,.what wrongs will be righted, look at the actions. So to sikhs, BLM is terrible. It comes for their  businesses and livelihood. And one cant even try to defend against the looters:  https://anncoulter.com/2020/09/23/innocent-until-proven-trump-supporterxxxx/ Thats the general panjabi thought about BLM. Heres mine: i support Black Lives Matter Too. That was the original name by the founders. I think it makes a lot more sense. Also im after the truth, but between the nbc and cbc whitewashing and fox news fearmongering, its hard to know whats true. I dont want to be lead by the mainstream media which is supporting ppl like biden, using all this unrest to paint trump bad. Its been wrong about the russian fraud, to trump impeachement to so many things. They have been calling the protest peaceful. Big games are afoot and i dont want to be a pawn. First the media was like social distancing. Shut down gurudware and churches. Then they allow and encourage ppl to attend these huge protests.which even though they included looting and burning were called peaceful. They wont condemn anything, even though many videos show black people angry cuz their kids got shot and killed, their businesses looted. One one sided narrative is being pushed and of anyone even criticizes a little bit they are canceled with shouts of racism.  So while i support BLMT, i wont let that turn me into a passive bystander. Its not only the end that matters, its also the means to get there.  Anyone can commit crimes under a movement, so be vigilant. A protest can easily be turned into a mob. And a mob is dangerous especially if it inevitably goes to loot rich places. As sikhs are rich, and have businesses and big houses, they can be a target. As the koreans were in LA riots. Nobody supported the koreans. The media and artists celebrated the rioters. But the koreans who had to defend their homes and stores with guns were all alone during the riots and the damages too. Also the rodney king riots, did they solve anything?  Will these protests? In the beginning BLM was smart. They knew doing peaceful protests werent gonna do anything. Ppl and governmwnts only pay attention when property is involved. So they were smart, they tartgeted police departments, governemnt buildings.and even big stores were ok.  And in war and big movements sometimes bystanders get hurt. I mean it was the sikhs tweeting 17 better 10,000 in support of rajoana. That the 17 bystanders killed in suicide bombing by rajoana was good because the guy who was killed wouldve killed many more sikhs. So i understand if some innocents get killed or some sikh businesses looted. What i dont like about BLM is thats its becoming cult like. The media wont report anything true about riots vs peaceful protests or anything negative, and if anyone is critical they are canceled. These are not just fox news talking points i have noticed it. Shutting down disagreements, hiding the truth is leading to propaganda and authoritarianism. That is more worrisome than racism.
