Rajiv Gandhi, Lies and Facts, 1984 THREAD
Are you the kind of person who has an open mind or have you already made up your mind in regard to most things? If you are the latter, you may well stop here without reading this thread.
The thread exposes the lies of Rajiv Gandhi.
In a statement reported on April 27, 1989 while addressing the Youth Congress session, he is said to have made the three claims that laid foundation for pushing the Sikh genocide under the carpet FOREVER & formed narrative that runs even today about Sikh genocide.
The three big LIES are

1. that riots were controlled quickly

2. That ‘unprecedented rehabilitation work’ was done and ‘meticulous care was taken to rehabilitate some families.’

3. that prosecution cases against 2400 people accused in 225 rioting cases had been launched.
Each one of these claims is a LIE sold to nation.

A press conference was held on May 31, 1989 by eight citizen organisations including Nagrik Ekta Manch, PUCL, PUDR, CFD, Manushi Citizens Justice committee, Nishkam Sikh welfare council, and the Sikh Forum to refute these claims.
Here are further more lies told by Rajiv Gandhi to nation about Sikh genocide. These lies have been repeated so many times by congress media & left intellectuals in their books that these form the opinion & narrative of even the sane Indians today.
Take a look.
EXPOSING LIE-1 that riots were controlled quickly.
As per the finding of Ranganath Misra commission, there was inordinate delay in calling army. If commission says that it could have been called & wasn’t called, where does that put Rajiv’s statement.

Police complicity with mob
The findings that Delhi admin did not take actions against culprits & did not register FIR’s is the quick action Rajiv talked about?
The killings continued for 5 days.
The report that Rajiv himself reviewed was discarded cuz it included major names in it. That’s the TRUTH of it
EXPOSING LIE-2- Strict legal action has been taken against culprits.
The official data says that around 1200 cases were not registered & im not even going to @ensaaf data yet.

The number of cases were closed wrongfully by police and law has not worked properly. Justice?
DTC has become hell for Sikhs. Imagine DTC telling its employees to not reveal the names. The state shielded DTC very well.

Govt still fails to acknowledge the death toll & it was because of one statement of PM that all is good.

There are so many examples of cases not filed
EXPOSING LIE-3- Unprecedented rehabilitations have been done.

The estimated amount claimed by govt and given by govt differed by 18000/-. If there were no Sikh orgs and Sikh Gurdwaras were under control of govt, it would have been hard to imagine the fate of people in Delhi.
There is a huge difference between the claims of the govt & actual rehabilitation work that has been done. The lies were sold so many times by PMo’s office that it has become truth for an average Indian who wouldn’t care to look for truth.
The lie that hurt the most and still hurts is Rajiv defending HKL Bhagat in all his statements. Rajiv in fact kept claiming that HKL Bhagat was with him during the genocide which was later proven wrong by commissions. This is the only LIE that saw truth due to efforts of Sikhs.
Attached are the affidavits of the victims who saw HKL Bhagat & Sajjan Kumar. It can be sad reading these if you are weak hearted.
It is fact that we cannot imagine the pain that they have felt, the grievances are unaddressed because there are still many who enjoy the rewards that were bestowed upon them by Gandhi parivaar for shielding Rajiv.

Opinion Post- Turns out all the thekedaari of condemning inhuman acts is taken up by Sikh orgs only. I have not seen a single Muslim organisation condemning the inhuman act of forcible Conversions Of Sikh girls in Pakistan. This NEEDS serious introspection.
Brushing off the incidents as an odd case is clearly not the option NOW. With the abduction of Bulbul Kaur, the lines need to be drawn. There is nothing wrong in setting up boundaries. If Sikhs can take up the hate aimed at Muslims post 9/11 without blinking-
-why stunning silence by Muslims on acts of their brethren in Pakistan?

It is loud and clear that Sikhs stand anti hate by principle but there is need to remind some orgs that Enough is Enough!

55 girls taken and counting!

A BDPO in Punjab Sardulgarh Block had issued a letter to Panchs & Sarpanchs to gather support & protest on 21 Sept. He had incorrectly claimed the protests to be organised by State. The News was broken by SAD mouthpiece PTC network after which Captain took action.
Captain Amrinder singh has withdrawn the said letter and has also transferred the said BDPO along with an inquiry on him.

This has given fodder to other parties to play some more politics using farmer grievances which is sad & unfortunate.
Harcharn singh Bains( SAD) “The stakeholders need to be taken on board. There are grievances that farmers have. We were told Ordinances are temporary arrangements & would be changed when we pass the bill.
BJP gave written commitment that MSP and procurement won’t be affected.-

Looks like you don’t even know the art of bootlicking properly. Dharmic people are bigger than a tiny irrelevant Truschke & for sure hold no gripe. We wish to engage in a debate where we demolish the deliberate attempts to whitewash our history with LIES! Is that wrong?
Your claim that @AudreyTruschke has not talked about it is again a lie and shows that you are doing a bad job of even being a propagandist. Take a look.
Now wait & watch her claims getting demolished.
This thread destroys all the claims of @AudreyTruschke on Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib’s execution. Give it a read for yourself.

All Sikh historians have called out Audrey for whitewashing Aurangzeb’s atrocities. Not only has she gone on to call Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Political but has also claimed that Aurangzeb was not even present in Delhi during Guru’s execution.
Most of Audrey’s work & those of Muslim historians on Arangzeb is based on or majorly plagiarised from Munshi Ghulam Hussain’s Siyyarul-Mutakharin. It even goes on to call Guru Sahib as robber thief.

Edwards and Gerret, Mughal Rule in India tells us the blackout of history
There are 3-4 major Persian records related to this period, and all of them NEVER recorded any tyranny of that period. For example, even the prosecution of Sufi saints is not recorded.

“What is the hurry to arrest him...” is what Ashok Bhushan Sahib has told Punjab Police while providing protection to on the run, serial killer, Sumedh Saini. This is what justice has been reduced to in India. If it is not a mockery, then what is it?…
Those rejoicing at the plain blindness of the systems today should know that this will come to haunt them one day like the congress established systems haunt us today. This is how things work. In this THREAD I will talk about infamous criminal Sumedh singh Saini.
Sumedh Saini is wanted under Sections 364, 201, 344, 330, 219 and 120-B of IPC.

FIR in this case was registered on the basis of the complaint made by Palwinder Singh Maultani, on the allegations that in the year 1991, his brother Balwant Singh Multani was picked up by Police.

Another important Hindu Temple lost in Pakistan due to negligence of the State. Mandir Radhe Sham fell down after 75 year in Nirali Village Tehsil Gujar Khan Dist Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

This is what Partition did to Sikh & Hindu Heritage. #History
The marble plate on Mandir is written in Urdu and read as “Radhe Sham Mandir, Santan Dharma, Nirali, Samvat 2002.
The temple is close to Gurudwara Pehli Paathshai Nirali, a place where Guru Nanak Sahib took rest for two days. This gurdwara is also in very poor state & on the verge of demolition by the authorities. Note the falling structure of Gurdwara Sahib.
