Rss Targets Rural Punjab

Recommended Posts

AMRITSAR: Raising concern over reports that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) plans to take shakhas in rural areas of Punjab, Congress deputy leader in the Lok Sabha and Amritsar MP Captain Amarinder Singh said that it would force Punjab back into the dark days of terrorism.

Talking to mediapersons here on Sunday, he said that with the RSS taking shakhas to villages, there were serious chances of communal disturbance. "I think it is a very dangerous move. They should not mobilize people on communal lines. I am afraid of disturbances and Punjab can go back to square one."

He said that the Congress party would tell people to beware of the designs of RSS as it doesn't want terrorism to resurface. "RSS shakhas will invite trouble even as we are still struggling to right past wrongs and the economy is in a shambles," he said, adding that it was a serious matter and even RSS leadership should reconsider it to maintain peace in state.

Talking about the growing distance between Akali Dal and BJP, he said that the Congress party was not bothered whether the alliance remains intact or breaks. "If the BJP thinks it can go alone, it can, but there is no denying the fact that for the past eight years, they have been partner in crime."

    • I"m not picking on anybody,  I asked a question,  "a great connection to your self identity and individuality", I assumed we are supposed to let go of our individuality.
    • Anything that fans our ego is not good for us.  Name doesn't have to add to our ego, instead it can provide us inspiration, in which case it is a good thing, and can become "a great connection to your self identity and individuality" as claimed by the Singhni in question.  Throughout our history, our Gurus have given new names to many Sikhs to inspire them, and these people went on to become model Sikhs.  We must remember that oneness and equality doesn't mean uniformity.  Gurus and saints have wanted people to be "Nirale" -- Tyrants have wanted people to be uniform.  Unless you know for sure that Singhni in question is on an ego trip because of her name, why pick on her?   Waheguru ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji Fateh
    • So I was on linked in today, one of my connection a Sikhni with phagg, so she looks like a follower of Sikhi, had a post 'the importance of your name' wherein she goes on and quote "Your name is often your greatest connection to your self identity and individuality." I responded with, quote " why get caught up on ones name? Are we not supposed to get rid of attachment? Such as 'self identity' or 'ego'. She then replied with quote "That's another view on it - thank you for sharing your thoughts. For many of us it's about courtesy and showing each other respect." It got me thinking are we now in situation, where we think we know better than the teachings of Guru Granth Sahib Ji? Or am I making a mountain out of a mole hill. Would like some other people's thoughts on it. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
    • haha , ok bro point noted . 
    • Why are you fishing for respect? If it doesn't come naturally to them, is it really worth anything if it needs to be demanded? See, that's the kind of mentality that a banda wouldn't give two hoots about in all honesty. Obsessing over such trivialities is a female trait. Is your mother putting these thoughts and perceived micro-aggressions into your head? Stop it. It's not a respectable form of behaviour. It makes you seem weak. Don't get so familiar with your in-laws. Be polite, be honourable and respectful, but don't talk about nonsense like you've mentioned. It's embarrassing, bro. Maintain a respectful distance.
