ਬਾਲ ਠਾਕਰੇ (ਸ਼ਿਵ ਸੈਨਾ ਦੇ ਸੰਸਥਾਪਕ ਅਤੇ ਨੇਤਾ) ਨੂੰ ਡਰਾਉਣ ਅਤੇ ਸਦਮਾ ਦੇਣ ਲਈ ਸੰਤ ਜਰਨੈਲ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲ਼ੀਆਂ ਨੇ ਮਹਾਰਾਸ਼ਟਰ ਰਾਜ ਦੇ ਇੱਕ ਵਿਆਪਕ ਦੌਰੇ ਨਾਲ ਸ਼ਿਵ ਸੈਨਾ ਦੀ ਚੁਣੌਤੀ ਦਾ ਜਵਾਬ ਦੇਣ ਦੀ ਯੋਜਨਾ ਬਣਾਈ। ਸੈਂਕੜੇ ਅਤੇ ਹਜ਼ਾਰਾਂ ਦੀ ਗਿਣਤੀ ਵਾਲ਼ੀ ਸ਼ਿਵ ਸੈਨਾ ਕਿਧਰੇ ਨਜ਼ਰ ਨਹੀਂ ਆ ਰਹੀ ਸੀ। (1/3)
ਸੰਤ ਜੀ ਦਾ ਕਾਫਲਾ ਪੰਜਾਬ ਤੋਂ ਸ਼ੁਰੂ ਹੋਇਆ, ਅਤੇ ਸਿਰਫ ਕੁਝ ਦਰਜਨ ਦੀ ਗਿਣਤੀ ਵਿੱਚ, ਪਰ ਬਹੁਤ ਸਾਰੇ ਹੋਰ ਸਿੱਖ ਟਰੱਕਾਂ ਅਤੇ ਮੋਟਰਸਾਈਕਲ ਸਵਾਰ ਇਸ ਕਾਫ਼ਲੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਸ਼ਾਮਲ ਹੋ ਗਏ ਕਿਉਂਕਿ "ਸੰਤਾਂ ਦੀ ਪ੍ਰਸਿਧੀ" ਦੇਸ਼ ਵਿੱਚ ਫੈਲ ਗਈ ਸੀ। ਸੰਤ ਜੀ ਨਾ ਸਿਰਫ ਬੰਬੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਦਾਖਲ ਹੋਏ, ਪਰ ਦੌਰੇ ਦਾ ਅੰਤ ਦਾਦਰ ਦੇ ਇਲਾਕੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਸੀ, (1/2)
ਜਦੋਂ ਸੰਤ ਜੀ ਬੰਬੇ ਪਹੁੰਚੇ ਤਾਂ ਹਜ਼ਾਰਾਂ ਸਿੱਖਾਂ ਨੇ ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦਾ ਸੁਆਗਤ ਕੀਤਾ ਜਿਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੇ ਬਿਨਾਂ ਕਿਸੇ ਚੁਣੌਤੀ ਦੇ ਦਾਖਲ ਹੋਣ 'ਤੇ ਫੁੱਲਾਂ ਦੀ ਬਰਖਾ ਕੀਤੀ। ਸ਼ਿਵ ਸੈਨਾ ਨੂੰ ਇਸ ਤੋਂ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ ਕਦੇ ਵੀ ਇਸ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਖੁੱਲ੍ਹੀ ਚੁਣੌਤੀ ਨਹੀਂ ਦਿੱਤੀ ਗਈ ਸੀ।

Happy #Vaisakhi, commemorating the birth of the #Khalsa:

By the advent of Guru Gobind Singh, the masses in the field were flocking to align themselves with this community whose leaders were sacrificing their lives to resist and destroy the power of slave-masters.
After 500 years of Shabad history developed by the Bhagats & the Gurus, formation of the Adi Granth & construction of Harmandir Sahib & Akal Takht, the next stage in the struggle to secure human dignity was to establish national status for the participants in the Sikh Revolution.
Guru Gobind Singh did this by uniting Panth and Granth in a body called the Khalsa (sovereign) which could enrich the world at large.

On India's #RepublicDay2021, #FarmersProtest raised #NishanSahib — the flag of the #Khalsa — over #LalQila, the historic #RedFort that today symbolizes the Indian Republic.

What does it mean?
According to the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak: "The lowliest of the lowly, the lowest of the low born, Nanak seeks their company. The friendship of great is in vain. For, where the weak are cared for, there Thy Mercy rains."
With the advent of the tenth Guru, Gobind Singh, & his establishment of the Khalsa, the original intent of Guru Nanak was finally fulfilled. The downtrodden embraced a Panth — path — in which they will never be victims, always be victorious, & constantly fight for the oppressed.

Shiromani Akali Dal will strongly take up the issue of restoration of Punjabi as an official language in J&K with PM Sh. @narendramodi & Home Minister Sh. @AmitShah besides raising the issue in parliament. Image
We'll seek a change in the draft legislation seeking to make Urdu, Kashmiri, Dogri, Hindi & English official languages of J&K by seeking inclusion of #Punjabi language in this list.
There is a widespread resentment amongst Sikhs and Punjabis worldwide at the discriminatory manner in which Punjabi has been excluded as an official language of J&K by its administration.

The painful ghallughara of June 1984 and later the traumatic events of Oct-Nov the same year symbolise the brutal and criminal anti-Sikh policies and decisions of the successive #Congress regimes at the Centre and in Punjab. 1/4
#OperationBlueStar #SikhGenocide Image
Even today, I find it so unreal, nightmarish and so unbelievable that a government in one’s own country could be so insensitive and so full of petty politicking as to roll tanks into the most sacred shrine of humanity, Sri Harmandir Sahib. 2/4
The world watched in horror and utter disbelief when instead of punishing the murders of thousands of innocent Sikhs, #RajivGandhi proceeded to reward the killers with positions of power and glory, including cabinet berths. He was clearly rubbing salt into #Sikh wounds. 3/4

[THREAD] On weapons captured by Tavhid Ja Jihod a couple of days ago in #Khalsa #Aleppo, likely from Iranian militias, which have suffered high casualties.

Quantites of small arms including T56, AKM-pattern rifles, & PKM-pattern MG. Customisation is typical of Shia militias.
3x RPG launchers including a DIO-produced model from Iran, a Chinese Type 69, and another RPG-7 pattern launcher- possibly Russian or Bulgarian
Here's where things get interesting- multiple Iranian produced RPG warheads, including PG-7-AT "Nader", PG-7-AT-1 "Fath",plus PG-7VL & PG-7VM rounds from Russia. This isn't a huge capture but is a good indication of how regime forces (In particular Iranian-aligned) are armed.
