Nothing you have to say above is unknown to soojhvaan Singhs in Punjab.
GOI intel agencies systematically work to flare-up key differences among various jatheybandees, they know what issues to play to pit Sikhs against each other.
The most easiest are actually sampardaic related factions in Punjab, given that how volatile their rationale is. (low level of tolerance for minor differences with others)ing
Another thing is, when some one becomes a prominent figure in the Panthic scene in Punjab. GOI intel works to turn them into their agent, naturally offer loads of $$$ .
Chanakya 101: know the difference among your enemies, exploit it & make them fight. Let them exhaust each other.
A prominent politician Singh in Punjab who I know, himself was approached by GOI intel agents and told me the above strategies GOI intel has in place.
What I say may not be popular with members of the Sangat but it is important to look at these statistics critically and to interrogate thoroughly.
Look at the ground realities and see if these statistics are congruent with what is going on.
I think our Panth can be quite naive and take things at face value.
Our way is to look at things from all angles so we can get a better, fuller picture.
Only then are we able to ascertain what needs to be done.
I don't understand why you're singling out politicians for special treatment. The same rules apply to anyone claiming to be a Sikh.
Hypothetically speaking and yes this an extreme example; if in the loosest sense of the word a "Sikh" is raising their voice the loudest for Khalistan, rehai for imprisoned Singh's, justice for genocide, Punjab rights as per Anandpur resolution etc, but is clandestinely visiting brothel's, doing drugs or other illegitimate base activities going against grain of Sikh teachings, would you be happy to be represented by them? I certainly wouldn't.
Please elaborate what was his stance on women, with examples.
