When I tell you all that Sikhi narrative will not be decided by libby tibby gang or the Right wing, this is what I mean. I refer to the stenographers (not journalists) like Bal. Not only is Bal alluding to stupid arguments but is also believer of some myths that need to be busted
First of all let’s stop playing around Bal, your views on farm laws are stupid & disconnected from reality. Your entire stenography talks about how Brahminism is the reason for these laws which I’m sure would have been not the case if Delhi had a different ruling regime.
I am pretty sure that you aren’t even aware about the varieties of seeds for just rice, the kitchen garden and flower pot part time agriculturist can well be expected to put his bigotry in Farm laws as well. Anyway! Let’s come to Tikait now.

On this day in 1983, Police fired on Akalis during their ‘Rasta Roko’ killing 23 Sikhs at Malerkotla. Sikhs were singing shabds in peaceful protest at trafficless road when they were fired upon by the orders of sub divisional magistrate.
On the same day Akali Morchas at Bhogiwal, Kup (near Malerkotla), Dera Bassi, Patiala, Phagwara, Bhatinda, Rajpura and some other places were also fired upon.
The Rasta Roko was not an abrupt decision, it was conceived at Sikh Conference at Chandigarh in March and plan was announced on March 12 by Akali leader Longowal. Sirdar Kapur Singh had attended the conference & had called for taking peasantry into fold.

#FarmersProtest enters day 130.

1. Tarn Taran SSP has rejected the report of Centre on bonded labour & has said that there is not even a single such case & has challenged Centre to show evidence or apologise. He said that report made by BSF is far from facts.
2. The term “bonded labour” was never mentioned in any of the cases lodged with police on those apprehended by the BSF at the International Border, say the Punjab Police. SPS Parmar, IG (Border Range), Amritsar, says an investigation is being conducted to ascertain the BSF claim.
3. Manohar Lal Khattar is expected to visit village in Sonipat today. The atmosphere is tense with farmers already lathicharged yesterday. Heavy police force deployed. It’s likely that he will cancel his visit to Avadi village.

Some of these woke Sanghis waking up to ‘bonded labour’ news like they made some revelation of the century. The fact is that bonded labour is a policy implementation problem in entire India. Punjab doesn’t even rank in top 5 states when it comes to bonded labour. Thread. Image
These very idiots won’t tell you the problem of bonded labour that Covid exposed and along with it exposed the hollow policies of Modi govt to bring reforms in labour sector. Here is what SC had to tell centre…
The ruling BJP govt in Karnataka got persuaded by builders lobby to cancel trains for migrants to enable bonded labour. The cases for this are going on in many courts of the state.…

Lmao @rpsinghkhalsa is a classic example of what Sirdar Kapur singh Ji meant when he said the following. (Point1)

Thread on hollow Sikhs or Pawns of Govt.
SGPC’s resolution against RSS didn’t go well with the org & they waited entire day to use a Sikh face @rpsinghkhalsa singh to criticise SGPC. What’s more laughable that this lackey values RSS more than a Sikh Institution that probably is the only roadblock between Sikhs & Hindus.
RP Singh quotes factually incorrect information and challenges SGPC to share information on Sikhs converted by RSS to Hindus. Singh has a lot to learn so let’s start here.
