As a Keshdhari Sikh it would be better to go to Amritsar given the current political climate. The OP clearly takes his safely seriously and Amritsar would be the safer option, not to mention Delhi has lots of Haryanvi and UP goondas.
There's also plenty of historical sites to explore in southern portion of Punjab, outside of mainstream Amritsar if you venture into those regions.
Sirhind, Fategarh Sahib and Ropar
Ucha Pind Sanghol, thousands of years old - east Punjab's Harrapan heritage, ancient Bhuddist stupa's, Gandharan art
aam-khaas baagh complex
Bhora Sahib (only surviving Gurdwara portion with original architecture)
Sultanate era buildings with great stonework
Really nice and cheap museums (social history & rural life, Maharaja Ranjit Singh war museum
various Ludhiana forts.
Tilla Baba Farid
Kila Mubarak dating back to 1215.
Kila Mubarak - the oldest and most majestic fort in Punjab with a 19th century Gurdwara at the top
Hand written hukamnama's of Guru Gobind Sahib stored at Talwandi Sahib
Smaller forts belonging to local rulers are present in certain tehsils
Amritsar airport to Moga is definitely more than 2 hours. It takes a lot longer usually than what's written on Google. Delhi to Punjab can be quite good depending on the route the car takes, some routes have better roads and are quicker. You won't feel tired if you stop along the way as well.
Moga people and generally all southern districts all speak Punjabi, even the local Hindus. Only ones who won't might be Bihari labourers in cities.
People in southern Punjab districts wear more Kurta Pyjamas than other districts, especially if you wear a white one, you'll blend right in.
yes, but showing emotion is a perfect human response, im obviously going to be affected considering this affects punjab and sikhi
obviously gotta focus on what you can do but it's okay to be upset about it, just as long as it doesnt get in the way and doesnt harm you in the long term
