Dal Khalsa UK slams Badal & Co. for saffron support


Dal Khalsa UK slams Badal & Co. for saffron supportWSN Network
LONDON: The Dal Khalsa UK has condemned moves to depict Sikhs as supporters of the fanatical Hindutva movement and the rally by VHP, RSS and Sangh Parivar forces that was centred around the Ram Setu Bridge issue and the Ram Mandir site on which the Babari Masjid was demolished by Hindu terror outfits in 1992.
The videos which have gone up on You Tube claim to show support by Sikhs for the Ram Setu Bridge and Ram Mandir. A representative of the Akali Dal Badal regime which rules Punjab came on behalf of Parkash Singh Badal to speak to supporters who had gathered there.
The Akali Dal Badal representative started off by praising Hindutva leaders on behalf of Badal and then proceeded to shout slogans of 'Jai Siya Ram' and went on to utter Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. The speaker then went on to speak of how Guru Nanak Dev Ji in Japji Sahib praises Ram, and equates the word 'Ram' in Bani with the Hindu diety and so called Bhagwan Ram throughout the video. He then goes on to say how the 9th Sikh Guru who gave his life for the protection of Human Rights died for the Hindu Dharam and twists the bani written by Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji to conform with their Hindutva standard of 'Sikhs are Hindus' along with their scriptures.
"How can the so called Akalis equate the word 'Ram' in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji with the Hindu Diety Ram and that as well as calling him Bhagwan? We find this unacceptable."

"They should note the 9th master would have given his life for any group of people and not just for Hindus and so called Bharat Sanskriti," the Dal Khalsa statement said.
He then goes on to convey a message by Badal and his Akali Dal to Sudarshan, senior leader of the RSS and other Hindutva leaders by saying that the Sikhs will make sacrifices for the cause of Hindutva.
He equates this with the court arrest of Sikhs during Indira Gandhi's brutal emergency rule.
The representative then goes on to say the Shriomani Akali Dal Badal fully supports the Hindutva movement. He then goes on to shout a Jaikara of Bole So Nihaal and the Hindu Nationalist Slogan of Jai Siya Ram.
Than a representative of the Namdhari sect appears and says if the name of Ram is taken out of India the nation will be left hollow and empty. He then goes on to say how Hanuman picked up a so called mountain and took it to Sri Lanka where it now stands out amongst other mountains and asks how many symbols of Ram will be wiped out. He then says that he is speaking as he has been sent by the leader of the Namdhari sect.
"How can the so called Akalis equate the word 'Ram' in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji with the Hindu Diety Ram and that as well as calling him Bhagwan? We find this unacceptable and would like to point out to the Sikh Nation that we should recognise the enemy on the outside but we must also recognise the enemy sitting within our own quarters and deal with them accordingly," the release said.
It urged the Sikhs to remain vigilant especially in the western world where RSS conspiracies are increasing.
