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.

This issue has been going on for several months with hundreds of farmers migrating to Malwa BUT so called 'Panth Rattan' Badal said he wasn't aware of the exact issue the Sikh farmers are facing (4 days ago).

Many are not aware but the same thing happened to Sikhs when Uttarakhand was carved out of Uttar Pradesh about a decade ago, many houses of our Sikh brethren were razed to the ground and our Sikh families made homeless.

The persecution of Sikhs in India stopped after 95? No! Its continuing, slowly but differently.

I don't understand with such dumb laws in India, how do they claim India is one nation? why can't someone from another state not buy farm land in Gujarat? Modi wants to become PM of India, yet he is allowing such an anti national move in his own state. Indians very often say to the Sikhs they should embrace all of India because all of India is yours, yet when they evict Sikhs from their farms and render them homeless as a result can they blame Sikhs for demanding separation from such a country?

The land around Kutch has very little population. That area is susceptible to Pakistani attack. In fact Pakistan even demands that land to be part of their territory. It is only in the interest of India that they should settle as many Sikhs in that area if they want it secured. Lal Bahadur Shastri knew this which is why he wanted Sikhs to settle that area. But these modern Indians think they are now strong enough to take on Muslims on their own, so they don't need Sikhs anymore. We will see in the future what happens whether or not they can take on Muslim invaders without the Sikhs.

They might be strong enough but not brave enough, due to being engrossed into materialism they care too much for their lives, living that they would rather send us to die instead.

.

There are plenty of Sikhs still in Uttarakhand with land. The farmers you are writing about had bought Escorts Farm land which was at the time subject of a legal dispute.

As for this Gujrat issue, again there are Hindu Jatts from Haryana who could also lose land. So it is not just a Sikh issue.

Please research a bit more before jumping to misguided conclusions.

Ajaib Singh at the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) is a congress appointee who will do anything to please his masters. Where is his concern about the thousands killed in fake encounters by Punjab Police? or the denial of justice to victims of the 84 pogroms?

As if gujrat is some america, it's a backwards region polluted and far backwards, sikhs would be doing themselves a favour by leaving kutchi land and going back to punjab or delhi or abroad

Thing is many of those Sikhs had sold their lands in Punjab and bought land in Kutch. Through their hard work they made barren land into lush green farm land. Now after they land has been made productive due to the hard work of Sikh farmers, the Gujarat government is trying to take the land away from them using some outdated laws. They put years of work on that land. It's not easy for a farmer to leave such land.

Right now punjab is suffering they should sell it and go back, punjab needs all it's good sikhs leave gujrat to be backwards. It's not easy but seems like it has to be done.

Aug 30th 2013

JALANDHAR: The efforts of ShiromaniAkaliDal to politically resolve the issue of displacement of Sikh farmers in Gujarat's Kutch region received a jolt this week with the NarendraModi government hiring noted lawyer Fali S Nariman to handle the case in the Supreme Court. The case was listed on Tuesday and Thursday but could not be heard and is likely to come up for hearing next week.

The SAD-BJP government in Punjab wanted Modi to withdraw the appeal filed by the Gujarat government in Supreme Court against the Sikh farmers in Kutch. However, Gujarat is determined to proceed with the case which was evident from the fact that it hired Nariman as lawyer.

Sources in the Akali Dal said the party was feeling let down as its repeated pleas did not make any impact on Modi and he made it clear that the issue would be decided by the Supreme Court only.

Incidentally, SAD patriarch Parkash Singh Badal and his deputy chief minister son Sukhbir were among the first leaders of NDA allies to support Modi's elevation as campaign committee chairman of BJP. "Akali Dal has been praising and projecting the decisiveness and firmness of Modi and was in favour of projecting him as the prime ministerial candidate but Modi's determination is causing problems for us now," said a senior Akali leader.

However, a Punjab BJP leader said Akali Dal should have taken up the issue with seriousness. "No efforts were made to resolve the issue and now it is difficult for Modi to take a U-turn after the case reached the SC," said the BJP leader. SAD senior vice-president Balwant Singh Ramoowalia, who was made a coordinator on the issue by Badal, said he had mooted a fresh proposal to Modi government to differentiate between the farmers and non-farmers. "Modi government should ensure that it would protect the Sikh farmers while it would pursue the case against non-farmers," said Ramoowalia. He conveyed this proposal to BJP MP and Gujarat affairs in-charge Om Mathur. "I have not lost hope for a resolution on the issue," Ramoowalia said.

After the 1965 war, at the initiative of late Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri, the then Congress-led Gujarat government had given barren government land to Sikh families in Kutch district at a token rate. Later, Gujarat government refused to acknowledge these settled Sikh farmers as rightful owners of the land and served them eviction notices in 2003. When the farmers' rights were restored later through a high court order, Modi government went into appeal against the order.

    • It's not even about religion anymore. Most of us are trying to survive out here in the West.  Myself dont care for Sikhi as much as I use to. Everything is in waheguru ji's hand whether or we will survive in the coming years.  
    • Is it the end of SGPC? I mean there’s one in Punjab, one in Haryana and Delhi.  Recently Hazur Sahib removed 2 members of it. It was a British creation in the 1920s.
    • In the uk we have Ramgharia gurdwaras, in some places ther are called Ramgharia sabha! However, I think most gurdwaras and even sikhs calling themselves "Ramgharia" are scamming us as they have weak or no connections to Ramgharia misl, and are just using the fact that they are tarkhans they can use the Ramgharia term because Jassa Singh Ramgharia was from tarkhan background. Please prove me wrong!   Also, I have been observing gurdwaras since I was young. I remember when I was a child in the 80s and 90s, Singh Sabha gurdwaras still allowed shoes and langar was eaten on tables, in the times when the adults used to work all the time, doing double shifts etc. However in the 2000s we can see a change in Singh Sabha gurdwaras as well as some other gurdwaras, where shoes are no longer allowed, and we have a lot of space to sit on the floor and do pangat in langar.  It's really strange to see so many tables in gurdwaras after seeing langar done exclusivily on the floor gurdwaras in Panjab and India. Just look at Harimandir Sahib, 4 takht, and many other gurdwaras back home. Now, across London, Slough and Berkshire, midlands, I have noticed Ramgharia gurdwaras allow shoes into langar and have little or no accommodation for sitting on the floor. It is bizarre to see in Ramgharia gurdwaras, the sangat coming from doing sangat or matha tek in divan hall, and then putting on their shoes to go to langar. Like we are going to a restaurant or something! What is this, is it some kind of kenya/east africa sikh colonial army era tradition to keep doing this, even after the other gurdwaras have moved back to giving satkar and respect for langar maryada? Then we come to the scam, in the Ramgharia gurdwaras, there seems to be more links to East Africa sikhs than Ramgharia misl. There are more trim Singhs with Kenya paghs on Ramgharia gurdwara committees compared to more sabat surat Singhs on Singh sabha committees, from my observations in these England regions. You will find more kenya pagh and trim or fixo darhi, than bana walay Singh in these gurdwaras, again the Ramgharia label is scamming us, as Ramgharia is used for sabat soorat Singhs from the misl, especially those tuned to bana (and open beard is part of bana). Also, I have listened to Rehraas Sahib in some Ramgharia gurdwaras, and they read the disfigured bhasauria SGPC style of Chaupai Sahib (such as the way performed at Harimandir Sahib the past 100 years), skipping arril and the last lines of kabyo baach benti, which makes them more like a Singh Sabha gurdwara and far removed from being Ramgharia due to having similar disrespect towarda bani as Singh sabha gurdwaras, as Ramgharia misl would respect dasam bani and read the full kabyo baach benti. So the langar thing is bizarre, and now I think of it it's disrespectful. And the use of Ramgharia sikhs and Ramgharia gurdwaras term is a scam as they are anything but, as there is so much disrespect to be associated with the practices of Ramgharia misl! Even the fact they celebrate Maharaja Jassa Singh Ramgharia's birthday doesn't allow them any forgiveness or courtesy! This goes double for the Slough Ramgharia Singh Sabha, as they have a statue of Jassa Singh Ramgharia, and yet are their actions related to actual Ramgharia? Yeh, let's not fall for the scam! and sikhs that are sangat in those gurdwaras, really need to step up and get in those committees and change things for chardi kala! We need to see more chardikala Singhs running things, not trim Singhs and fixo Singhs!
    • Japji Sahib can be done anytime within 24 hours, but ideal time is before breakfast.  Ardaas after is optional but if you can make it necessary will be ideal. When it comes to paat more the merrier.  Meat / alc should be in separate rooms to Gutke Sahibs. It is possible no matter how small the house. WAIT! Isn't all food in the kitchen??  You can still do paat after meat n alc. Nothing wrong there... just wash yer hands! (Obviously).
