Sikhism, with over 30 million followers, is the world's 5th largest religion.

On January 26, 1950 Constitution of India was enforced without the consent of Sikhs who refused to sign it because Explanation II to Article 25(b) of the Constitution labels “Sikhs” as “Hindus”.

January 26, 2015 marks the 65th year of Sikhs' struggle for right to self-determination, for which Sikhs have been subjected to “Genocide" with impunity, starting from:

- June 1984, Military action against Golden Temple;

- November 1984, Organized killing of over 30,000 Sikhs; and

- 1984-98, Extra-judicial killing of over 100,000 Sikhs.

President Obama: Question PM Modi "WHY Indian constitution labels "Sikhs" as Hindus?" and raise the issues of “Sikh Genocide”; and “Sikhs’ Right to Self-determination”.

Article 25 in The Constitution Of India 1949
25. Freedom of conscience and free profession, practice and propagation of religion
(1) Subject to public order, morality and health and to the other provisions of this Part, all persons are equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right freely to profess, practise and propagate religion.
(2) Nothing in this article shall affect the operation of any existing law or prevent the State from making any law -
(a) regulating or restricting any economic, financial, political or other secular activity which may be associated with religious practice;
(b) providing for social welfare and reform or the throwing open of Hindu religious institutions of a public character to all classes and sections of Hindus.
Explanation I - The wearing and carrying of kirpans shall be deemed to be included in the profession of the Sikh religion
Explanation II - In sub clause (b) of clause reference to Hindus shall be construed as including a reference to persons professing the Sikh, Jaina or Buddhist religion, and the reference to Hindu religious institutions shall be construed accordingly.
The Constitution of India is federal in nature. Each state and each Union territory of India has its own government. However, Punjab has been denied its own capital as others States of India have. Instead, draconian laws allowing the central government to take control are in place. Chandigarh is a city and a union territory in the northern part of India that serves as the capital of the states of Haryana and Punjab. As a union territory, the city is ruled directly by the Union Government of India and is not part of either state.
Sikhs did not sign the constitution.

Indian Constitution is NOT federal but unitary in nature. State autonomy is suppressed using many articles and clauses in the Constitution. Even basic fundamental rights are subject to "national security, peace" etc. which are vague and deliberately written to allow the Center to trample over human rights. Emergency via presidential rule, suspension of state government etc. Are clear examples of this. This is why Sikhs foresaw the danger of such a document and refused to sign it as it was against the promises made by Congress. Article 25 is not the only reason but one of many reasons.

PTI | Dec 22, 2014, 09.13 PM IST

Akal Takht backs ‘Sikhs are not Hindus’ petition

The Akal Takht, meaning throne of the timeless one, is one of five takhts (seats of power) of the Sikh religion. It is located in the Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) complex in Amritsar. (Getty Images file photo)

.

AMRITSAR: Akal Takht, the top temporal seat of the Sikhs, on Monday asked the members of the community to continue signing a petition "Sikhs are not Hindus" till December 31.

All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) and the US-based Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) have initiated the process to file the online petition, and the Sikh organizations wish that US President Barack Obama would raise the issue of separate status of Sikhism with Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to India next year.

Akal Takht's head Gurbachan Singh directed the Shiromani Gurudwara Parbhandhak Committee (SGPC) to support the signature campaigns for the purpose to be held at Fatehgarh Sahib on December 26, 27 and 28.

Obama is likely to attend the Republic Day function as a chief guest on January 26.

Emphasizing that an "amendment" in Article 25 (b) is "must as it clubs Sikhs with Hindus", Singh said the petition mentioning "Sikhs are not Hindus", and more than 100,000 signatures will be presented to Obama by AISSF and SFJ.

Great news.

The petition is the 16th most popular at the moment with 105,185 signatures. The other petitions have closed so the ranking could rise further.

It will be interesting to see the response from the State Department.

US needs to decide whether it supports Sikhs and stands for truth and justice.
Or, whether it will be like the UK and betray Sikhs, placing economic benefit in front of moral values.

    • Ghokal Chand Narang writes: The founder of the Bhangi Misl, Chajja Singh, lived in a village near Amritsar. Chajja Singh took Khandey di pauhal from Banda Singh Bhadur.    Now, if Banda Singh hadn’t taken Amrit himself, how could he been in the Panj pyare, to give Amrit? Chajja Singh was a mighty warrior! There are some adulterations to this Granth. The British adulterated the Sau Sakhi, in order to break the Khalsa spirit.    The biggest bench mark that we have, is SGGS. Any historical event that does not conform to Gurbani, is contentious!
    • Tandon, that is a Khatri.  HP Khatri,  probably from Delhi.  They are very vitriolic against Sikhs.  Being Khatri, she probably has some Sikh relatives.  These types of Hindus I find have a visceral hatred of Sikhs.  
    • That's one leap in logic I'm struggling to comprehend. What are the Sikh contributions that are currently making society a fairer place? How are we any different to any other in demographic in practice as opposed to theory? Facts, please, not emotionally driven rhetoric.
    • Its paap like these that india still has the misfortune of 2 nasty neighbors china and pak , and also now nepal .  and a corrupt political system which hinders its growth while china due to its one party system grows leap and bounds and now china threatens india's takht by intrusion at LAC.
    • She is a well known agent provocateur who goes to Sikh protests and uses carefully cut footage to show Sikhs as extremists. She is a Hindu Punjabi so that should tell us a lot. She is full of hatred for Sikhs. She went and took photos of one of the Gurdwaras in Slough which display Khalistan slogans and complained to the charity commission about them. This is a video from a few years ago and it shows here being handed back her backside by Sikhs. You can see that she has some handlers with her one of whom tries to call out the Singhs claiming 'Main vi Sardar hain, Main Jat hain' what a total wally, a cut hair midget claiming to be a Sikh and a Jat! The Singhs really gave her an experience none of these sell out fascist Hindu journalists ever get because they are used to being shown respect even though they just spread anti-Sikh propaganda. She and her handlers were shoved out and even the police joined in shoving her out. It's funny when one of the protestors shouts out " She's a terrorist!"  Enjoy
