A hindu man killed 5 sikh farmers and no outrage . But anytime a sikh does something these people seem to have alot of problem. Cowards are only in power because of the useless backstabbing British not because of their merit or strength.

Union minister Ajay Mishra 'Teni' has blamed the local police in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri for violence in Tikunia village, in which eight people were killed. The minister's son is the prime accused in the case. He is in judicial custody and being interrogated.

Mishra made the remarks on Sunday while attending a prayer meeting at Singha Khurd village for three Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers who had died in the wake of the October 3 violence. The Union minister said that one of these workers, Shyam Sundar Nishad, was alive and had reached the ambulance but was dragged out and killed in the presence of police officials.

He further alleged that the police did not conduct proper recce of the area despite intelligence inputs; Mishra also said no barricades were put on the route which was taken by the protesters who were coming back after stating a stir.

An SUV had mowed down a group of protesters in Tikunia village, killing eight of them, including four farmers. The protesters have claimed that minister's son Ashish was in the car and are even demanding Ajay Mishra's removal.

They have organised a nationwide 'Rail Roko' protest demanding the sacking of the minister from the Union cabinet. Ajay Mishra has been denying all the allegations, even claiming that his son was not present at the site on that day.

The fresh remarks from the minister are expected to give fresh ammunition to the opposition, which has been targeting Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in the state. They have claimed that the state government does not care about the farmers and have joined the farmers in demanding the Union minister's removal.

Official said that the police team investigating the violence in Tikunia village has received over 147 videos of the incident, which are being reviewed for further clues. Most of these videos were sent by eyewitnesses on the cellphone number issued by the police.

The investigating team is also conducting raids to arrest key witness Sumit Jaiswal, who was believed to be in the SUV leading a convoy of three vehicles that rammed into the protesters. Jaiswal failed to appear before the police team despite being summoned.

Lakhimpur Kheri: Supreme Court to continue hearing today. Here's what happened in last proceeding

The Supreme Court will continue hearing the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case on Tuesday, a week after it rapped the Uttar Pradesh police for “dragging its feet” in the investigation. Noting that the special investigation team (SIT) probing the violence needed to get more witnesses to record their statements, the top court adjourned the proceedings last week to October 26. The bench asserted that the SIT must identify the vulnerable witnesses, provide them protection and record their statements under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), as it will have more evidentiary value.

As many as eight people, including four farmers and a journalist, were killed on October 3 during a farmers' protest in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri district. An SUV, belonging to Union minister of state for home affairs Ajay Mishra's convoy, ran over them. Thirteen people, including Ashish Mishra, the prime suspect in the case and the Union minister’s son, have so far been arrested in connection with the incident.

In its hearing last week, the Supreme Court asked the Uttar Pradesh government why the statements of only four witnesses had been recorded till then. Senior advocate Harish Halve, appearing for the government, sought to dispel the query by saying the police have arrested a number of those accused in the incident and that the statements of other witnesses were being recorded when the courts had shut due to the Dussehra break.

The Supreme Court also asked the government why police custody of other accused was not sought, noting, “Until and unless they are interrogated by police, you won't find out.”

Earlier, too, the top court expressed its dissatisfaction over the steps taken by the Uttar Pradesh government in the “brutal murder” of the eight men in Lakhimpur Kheri. On October 8, the top court said it was “not satisfied” with the action taken in the violence and also questioned the Uttar Pradesh government regarding the delay in arresting accused Ashish Mishra.

Ashish, who was taken into police remand, has in the meanwhile contracted dengue and was sent to the district jail on Saturday evening for treatment at its healthcare facility, according to police officials familiar with the development. On Friday, he was taken into two-day police custody along with three others for further interrogation in the case.

Who are the Sikhs of Lakhimpur Kheri? Tracing their history, origin, livelihood

Sikh families in the Terai region in Uttar Pradesh, of which Lakhimpur Kheri is a part, migrated to the region post Partition. Most of them practice farming.

TENZIN ZOMPA 7 October, 2021 1:04 pm IST

The district of Lakhimpur Kheri is home to the largest Sikh population in Uttar Pradesh, most of whom belong to the farming community.

According to the 2011 Census, 6,43,500 Sikh population live in Uttar Pradesh and of them, 94,388 are settled in Lakhimpur Kheri. However, they are a minority in the district as they constitute just 2.63 per cent of the district’s population.

 


Sikhs in Uttar Pradesh

A sizable population of Sikhs moved to Uttar Pradesh and settled in various districts in the Terai belt after Partition.

Known as ‘mini Punjab’, the Terai belt, a marshy plain south of the Himalayas on the Nepal border, stretches from Saharanpur in the west to Kushinagar in the east and includes districts such as Nalital, Pilibhit, Rampur, Bijnor and Lakhimpur Kheri.

According to the 1963 Census, UP witnessed a 43.58 per cent rise in Sikh population from 1,97,612 in 1951 to 2,83,737 in 1961.

A report in the Economic and Political Weekly magazine noted that this migration was fuelled by the agricultural potential of the land, which had been lying barren prior to Independence.

The first settlement of Sikh farmers was set up in 1952, when refugees from Punjab were granted 12 acres of land per family. However, land was only given to those who already owned some acres in their native regions.

“Post India’s and Punjab’s Partition in 1947, compensatory land was given to those who had to forfeit their land in West Punjab, in parts of Punjab and UP. That is how a substantial number of Punjabi people — and Sikh community — the Jats among them (as primary landowners in colonial and post-colonial Punjab) came to own land”, Anshu Malhotra, Professor & Kapany Chair for Sikh & Punjab Studies, University of California Santa Barbara, told ThePrint.

Meanwhile, lower caste Sikhs like a section of Raisikhs joined the labour force since they did not receive land of their own. Some of the Raisikhs also bought land from local tribes like Tharus and Buxhas, the original inhabitants of Terai, along with the Mazhabis, another lower caste community of Sikhs.

In 2019-20, Lakhimpur Kheri was the highest contributor to the agricultural production in the state.

The Sikh farmers have played a huge role in making Lakhimpur Kheri district one of the highest contributors to the agricultural production of the state with a total contribution of Rs 12,414.40 crore to the state’s agriculture, fisheries and forestry sector in 2019-20.

Alleged militancy

While several Sikh families in the Terai region of Uttar Pradesh trace their origins to the Partition, the region has often been called the “base of operations” for Sikh “militants”, especially in the 1980s-90s.

In 1986, police raids were conducted on 6.5 lakh Sikh households, in a purported counter-terrorism measure. While nothing incriminating was found in the raids, the Sikh farmers in the region accused the UP government, then led by Congress’ Vir Bahadur Singh, of treating them as second-class citizens.

Several violent incidents have also been reported from the area since the 1990s, including the encounter in Pilibhit in 1991, where 10 Sikhs were killed by the UP Police in three separate ‘encounters’.

Initially, the 10 Sikhs were identified as militants but later it was found they were pilgrims returning from holy sites. In 2016, 47 police officers were sentenced to life for the killings.

In 2017, a joint operation by Punjab Police and UP’s Anti-Terrorism Squad, raised the alarm that militants of a banned Khalistani terror group, Babbar Khalsa International (BKI), were residing in districts dominated by Sikhs in Uttar Pradesh.

Two members of the group were later arrested from Lakhimpur Kheri.

On farm laws

Sikh farmers in Uttar Pradesh have been part of the ongoing farmers’ protest, which started last year, against the three contentious farm laws.

The Sikh-dominated areas in Uttar Pradesh largely cultivate sugarcane, an important cash crop in the state, while rice and wheat are principal food grain crops. Others include pearl millet, maize, rapeseed and mustard.

In the past few years, an agrarian crisis has developed in the cultivation of sugarcane in Uttar Pradesh. The crisis revolves around three major issues — unchanged prices, delayed or staggered payments, and exponential growth in input costs.

Sugarcane farmers have also protested against this crisis earlier, particularly, the non-upgradation of sugarcane state advised price (SAP), which had remained unchanged since 2017-18.

The Yogi Adityanath government raised the price in 2021, from Rs 325 per quintal to Rs 350 per quintal. However, farmer leader, Rakesh Tikait, chief of the Bharatiya Kisan Union, called the move a big joke on farmers.

The Sikh population in Uttar Pradesh is considered an important vote bank in the Terai region, with its numbers significant enough to tilt the results in the region.

In 2018, Shiromani Akali Dal’s (SAD) Sukhbir Singh Badal also admitted their political significance and said, “Sikhs control more than 70,000 votes in the state (UP).”

Eight people were killed in the October 3 violence, which took place during a protest over Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya visit to Lakhimpur Kheri. Four farmers and a journalist were knocked down by a car carrying BJP workers. Union Minister Ajay Misra's son Ashish Misra is among the 13 people arrested in connection with the death of the farmers.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on Monday expressed unhappiness over the status report filed by the Uttar Pradesh government in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case and suggested that a former high court judge monitor the ongoing probe by the Uttar Pradesh police.

    • Lol. Way to be late to the party there Ravi. 
    • The liberal mafia attacking Amaan Baali because he committed the ultimate sin of standing up for the Sikh community in Kashmir and told the truth of the grooming of Sikh girls. Let's look at the background of these liberals who are now attacking Amaan. Monica Gill - failed model latched on to the Farmers agitation in order to gain more exposure and credibility. On the grooming of the Sikh girls in Kashmir she was solidly on the side of the paedophiles. She promoted the Quint narrative that the Sikh girl was an adult even when the paedophile admitted that he had started to target her when she was 12/13. Her sister apparently 'researched' the grooming of Sikh girls in Kashmir and found 'no evidence'!  Ravi Singh KA - we all know about him and his liberal agenda and his main focus on using the Panth's money to help our enemies and gain him a Nobel prize.  This Angadh Singh Khalsa guy - another liberal mupp.et using the Sikh identity to further the cause of the Jihadis. here's an article about him- his main claim to fame- being a dhimmi and helping in the Kashmiri plan to turn Kashmir into an Islamic state like Afghanistan. What could possibly go wrong for Kashmiri Sikhs when that happens? His views on the grooming of Sikhs - he is 'nuanced'! How Kashmir's Fraught Political Journey Led a Young Sikh Man Into Activism (thewire.in) You can judge the value of a person to the Panth by knowing the background of the people  who are attacking him.       
    • Is that Surrinder Shinda in the video?
    • There is a new Muslim bhangra singer from UK called Raf Saperra. Not only has he made a music video where he is lusting after and flirting with a Sikh girl who has a prominently displayed kada, but the song has been produced by so called Sikh Sukhshinder Shinda and the background of the video is full of so called Sikhs wearing kaday, egging on the Muslim singer to flirt with the Sikh girl and sing about her lustfully. Astonishingly there is an old Baba with a long white dhari and white dastaar in the video as well.  I have not seen one comment on the YouTube page that is concerned about this. I have also noticed that as part of his image in general this singer has avoided highlighting he is a Muslim, only reluctantly alluding to being from West Pakistan during an interview when asked.  Instead our so called Sikh people are all backing him up and featuring in his videos wearing huge kaday while holding alcohol bottles. There is a blurring of lines here with regards to identity which is normally used by this group to take advantage of our people. Our own people are stupidly helping this cause.   There are a few of his bhangra videos which also feature smoking (Muslim Pakistani  culture) which will probably confuse Apne thickos into thinking this is now a normal part of our own culture. They are making bhangra videos without making it clear they are Muslims and subtly putting their own culture into it. What has happened to these people's zameer?   This is the video.
