Should Sikhs Support The New Political Revolution In India Called Aap

Recommended Posts

We all know how Congress and BJP are 2 faces of the same coin as far as Sikhs are concerned. While Congress openly butchered Sikhs in peri-1984 era, BJP is clearly known for its anti-Sikh policies. A new political party called AAP ( Aam Admi Party) has sprung in India. It actually formed government in Delhi state just a while ago.

AAP seems to be focusing a lot on providing an honest and clean governance with a lot of emphasis on removing corruption. As far as Sikhs are concerned, it seems to be a much better alternative to Congress or BJP. Here's a few things which I think we should consider if we ( as Sikhs) were to support this party on a national level

1) This is the only party which openly supported the recent Bhai Gurbaksh Singh's movement.

2) AAP says both BJP and Congress are communal. It openly voices to bring corrupt BJP and Congress politicians to justice.

3) Senior lawyer HS Phoolka ( who has tirelessly & selflessly worked for the 1984 Carnage victims) recently joined AAP

3) A lot of liberal and intellectuals are joining AAP

4) Hindu terrorists attacked AAP's office as one of its senior members said there should be referendum for army presence in Kashmir, shows the fact that this party is anti-Hindtva

5) AAP joined in sooner than any other party when Nirpreet Kaur sat on hunger strike for 1984 victims

6) AAP mentioned in its manifesto to provide justice to victims of 1984 genocide

7) AAP has a Sikh cell within the party.

8) Arvind Kejriwal ( leader of AAP) visited Gurdwara Bangla Sahib without any security within days of becoming chief minister of Delhi on occasion of Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Gurpurab.

The question would be given the fact that Sikhs absolutely do not have any political voice in India ( assuming we all agree that Badals are rather anti-Sikh), would it be worthwhile for SIkhs to support AAP ? We need to align ourselves with a national party in India & by aligning with BJP, the Badals have ruined a lot of our prospects. Congress and BJP have done their best to malign Sikhs at all levels. Should Sikhs align with AAP early only ( while it is still in its infancy)?

Sikhs should whole heartedly support AAP. In fact if Indians want to take the country forward

they should give AAP a chance.

Kejriwal had promised to institute SIT ( special investigating team) for 1984 genocide in New Delhi

before elections.

Rush for AAP membership in Amritsar

Yudhvir Rana,TNN | Jan 9, 2014, 04.17 AM IST

AMRITSAR: Disenchanted with more-than-often false promises made by the traditional parties, people in Amritsar and its periphery are increasingly joining AAP with the number swelling over 8,000 in the past 10 days.


"Our membership enrollment has increased ten times after AAP formed its government in Delhi" Ashok Talwar, AAP district convener told TOI on Wednesday. "Our target was to enroll 10,000 volunteers by January 31 but I am optimistic it will cross the 20,000 mark," Talwar added.

Ravinder Sultanwind, an RTI activist, who recently joined AAP said he wanted to be part of team that has the courage to take on the political parties in the ongoing anti-corruption drive. "People are fed up with these traditional parties which are now bankrupt of vision. People want new faces having vision for the welfare of aam admi," he said.

Talwar informed that many office bearers of major political parties have joined AAP as volunteers. "We are not giving them any position, but are forming adhoc committees to get the feedback from their respective areas. Once we are fully equipped we will announce district body of AAP," he said.

Since AAP has elevated a common man as MLA in Delhi, it has to take precautionary measures before enrolling people to avoid vested interest joining AAP, sources in the party said on condition of anonymity.

Both the BJP and Congress have the blood of minorities on their hands , AAP provides an alternative. Maybe Mann and other Sikh parties could work with the AAP like they did with the BSP.

There are few troublemakers in aap too but I hope that kejriwal keep tab on them. Overall they are 1000 times better than other India parties.

However it will be extremely hard for kejriwal to control and he need iron hand to control his team if he decides to run for PM.

He will do extremely well in Punjab.

Mann dal and other sikh parties are no different now than other discredited parties.Mann is a fast friend

of Harjinder dilgeer.

AAP is a chance to wean away majority community from communalism of BJP and Narendra Modi.

I think their friendship goes from the old days when Dilgeer was not a heretic yet. His old books that were written before 2000 were quite good as far as Gurmat is concerned. Only God know what happened to Dilgeer and Darshan Singh that they became Kala Afghana chelas and such detractors of Sikhi Sidhaants.

See the real face of Kiran Bedi.She has revealed true colors now

Hazare aide Kiran Bedi to vote for ModiTNN | Jan 10, 2014, 03.29 AM IST

NEW DELHI: Gandhian Anna Hazare's aide and former IPS officer Kiran Bedi on Thursday openly supported BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

In a tweet, Bedi, who had earlier shared stage with Arvind Kejriwal at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi during the Lokpal agitation, said, "As an independent voter, my vote is for NaMo."

In an apparent sarcastic remark against Delhi chief minister Kejriwal, she said, "A khas aadmi is khas when he does khas work for aam aadmi without any expectations from aam admi in return!"

Hazare and his team of supporters had parted ways with Kejriwal following his decision to form a political party. In fact, Bedi, despite getting an invite, didn't attend the swearing-in ceremony of Kerjiwal.

AAP to contest all 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab

JALANDHAR: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has announced that it would contest on all 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab in the forthcoming general elections. AAP spokesperson and working committee member Sanjay Singh, who was here to attend a workers' meet of the party, along with senior human rights advocate H S Phoolka, said that drugs would be a major issue for the party during parliamentary polls in Punjab, along with farmer suicides and national problems like corruption and inflation.
The party has also favoured a judicial probe or a court-monitored investigation into the synthetic drug racket case in which druglord Jagdish Singh Bhola has named Punjab cabinet minister Bikram Singh Majithia.
Sanjay said as investigations by Punjab police would have zero credibility with the DGP already giving a clean chit to Majithia, only a judicial probe could be fair or else, the court should monitor the proceedings. He further stated that CBI had proved its inefficiency in several high profile cases.
Responding to a query, he said that while his party would contest all 13 Lok Sabha seats, there would not be any alliance. However, he revealed that talks with some groups in Punjab were on but nothing has been finalized.
When pointed out that leaders from other parties were also mulling to join AAP, Sanjay Singh said that before the entry of any leader from other parties, three Cs -- corruption, criminal record and character - would be checked and there would not be any compromise on the criteria.
Meanwhile, a workers meeting in Desh Bhagat Yaadgaar hall, which was packed to capacity, clearly reflected that the win in Delhi, where unknown faces defeated influential candidates, was being quoted by party leaders to mobilize workers, who also appeared to be brimming with enthusiasm.
Addressing the gathering, Sanjay Singh said that the SAD-BJP government was trying to muzzle dissenting voices in the state. "We challenge Badal government to throw us into jail as it has been doing with agitators. We shall organize a major opposition to the state government and would sweep all the 13 seats in LS polls," he said.

    • British account of Akali Phoola Singh   THE DEATH OF PHOOLA SINGH – extract from the poem by R.W.Bingham And fiercer raged the stubborn strife, not so unequal then, But Phoola Sing, the Nihung Chief, had lost three hundred men. Himself once more was wounded, still like a flaming star, Leading the strife, was fairly seen his flashing scimitar: And fiercer still the battle grew, and louder still was cried The “Allah Ho,” from Moslem ranks—”Wah Khalsajee,” replied. And still the Sikhs press on; the Khalsa bayonets thrust, Makes many a brawny Affghan to bite the trampled dust: But Phoola Sing has fallen ;—his leadership is o’er, The doubly gallant Chieftain, lies weltering in his gore. He fell on “Terees” top; he saw the black banner fly Close by his side,— the guiding star which led to Victory; He raised his thrilling cheer once more, the bullet pierced his brain. He fell, on heaps of slaughtered foes;— he’ll never fight again. Then rose from Khalsa ranks the yell of anguish and of ire, They fiercely rushed upon the foe, like a devouring fire; In vain, in vain were sword and lance, in vain were helm and targer Nor foot, nor horse, could there avail, ‘gainst that resistless charge. The Moslem ranks are wavering now, their banners rent and torn. “Wah Gooroojee,” once more the cry, and down the hill they’re As well resist an avalanche, or whirlwind in its force, As try to stem the dreadful rush of bayonets in their course. The plain and hill, were covered o’er, the Loonda full of slain, And since that day, the Affghans ne’er have dared the strife again; But since the death of Phoola Sing, have crouched before our power. While we have ruled by right of arms the valley of Peshawur.
    • Akali Phoola Singh died while in battle against the Afghans, Akali Phoola Singh broke his kneecap and fell off his horse but then re-entered the battle this time on the back of an elephant making him an easier target. He died in battle like a true warrior.  Vaar written by Missar Hari Chand about Akali Phoola Singh titled "mighty friend"     Old painting from Jammu depicting Singhs last battle
