Dhindsa’s Reply To Sarna

1 post in this topic

Criticising Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee president Paramjit Singh Sarna for issuing a statement that the NDA had done little for Sikhs, secretary general of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa said today that the NDA had done a lot for Sikhs during its regime under the leadership of then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. He said perhaps Sarna had issued such a statement just to please the UPA, led by the Congress, for petty political gains.

It was the NDA which had formed the Nanawati Commission for probing the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, while the Congress had committed atrocities on Sikhs in many ways, including the 1984 riots.

Dhindsa said during the NDA regime, the Badal government had held the bicentenary celebrations of the coronation of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and at that time Vajpayee had attended the function and announced a package of Rs 1,500 crore for Punjab. The Badal government had also celebrated the tercentenary of the birth of the Khalsa and Vajpayee had given Rs 100 crore for the purpose

    • bro , I did say sorry if you got offended , it was a misunderstanding on my part because you were talking about something That was not on the page but if you think calling names is warranted be happy .
    • You are not going to apologize for your insulting comment.  I thought you wouldn't.  Do you remember your past and what you have done?  Let's say a women of such a character came along, would we call her a Gundhi, luchi janani?
    •   1.  You are complaining that amritdharis/religious sikhs are failing to do what is necessary to create a "robust fauj."  Let me ask you something: in the 1980s, who stepped up and put their lives on the line?  It was 90% amritdharis and/or religious, keshadhari singhs.  They bled, gave up their lives, had their families subjected to all kinds of atrocities.  How much can these people take?   2.  Your critique is based on the assumption of what a "robust fauj" is.  The world has changed.  The Sikh nation is not going to liberated by a few unorganized, rag-tag gangs of 20 year old boys in the Punjab countryside.  The Sikh nation is also not going to be liberated by vigilante groups of mundey in Canada or the UK.  What we need, what we have been sorely lacking for our entire existence, is a strong group of educated, intelligent, and passionate Sikhs who can formulate nuanced, viable strategies for the quam to meet its challenges, and who have the intelligence, resources, and networks to implement such strategies.  With that in mind, I see nothing wrong in amritdhari/religious kids being groomed for success in academics and the professional world.  Look at Jews.  They are smaller in population than we are, but they are generally very well educated and successful, and, on top of that, help each other out.  They wield a tremendous amount of influence and power because they have positioned themselves in such a way.  That's the way for us to get ahead and protect our interests in the modern world.
    • bro , honestly if we are talking about one link and source , then introducing facts about something different should be clarified  so that misunderstanding doesn't happen . Sorry if you got offended but given what was given I could not see what you accused her of so I did show what I was looking at to clarify what I was talking about to back up what I had said and yes she is clothed there . OP Bibi did not refer to that picture so like another person before me I just saw standard artsy output granted some was not gurmat approved (nudes etc) but not extreme like Rupi's 'art' piece on menstruation so did not expect such an accusation to occur on it .    
    • with your limited searching skills, which you are using as an excuse now.  You decided it was right to blame me as so; Where do you get the nerve to speak in this manner?  I can run a train on you right now and even make you cry.  Keep your mouth shut when you don't know anything.  Got it!!! I have the photo and so does a lot of other people of her tying a dastar with her top off.  She posted it on a social media site.
