seems you misread the quote slightly she is reiterating that to equate us to terrorist wont be tolerated , [terrorism being the government's speciality action] she also distances us from the comrades and liberal agendas as sikhi is different in aim (deg teg fateh)
This is what I mean about adolescent mindset. Our middle aged folk mentally think they are young and complain about the "elders " who are hogging up the limelight.
You are the "elder" now. You are not deferring authority to a 70 year old, but to a peer.
Now you are bollocking someone of the same age, in fact you don't have authority to them because they are not your elder and you can support the youngsters.
