My open letter to Gopal Singh Chawla

I warn Pakistani Sikh leader Gopal Singh Chawla to stop spreading lies and his hateful propaganda. In last few days, we have been noticing him acting on the directions of terrorist Hafeez Sayeed and spreading lies on banning  uttering of words ‘Raj Kareg Khalsa’ in India only to save face of Pakistan which stopped Indian Envoy from visiting Gurudwara Sri Panja Sahib in Rawalpindi.

I am ashamed to call you a Guru ka Sikh for you do nothing but spread hatred and violence. You clear agenda is to incite the citizens of India particularly the Sikhs and you are doing so to please Hafeez Sayeed, a most-wanted terrorist!

Had you followed the teachings of Guru Sahibs, you would have never sided with Pakistan government’s decision to stop Indian envoy to pay obeisance at Gurudwara Sri Panja Sahib and now all the false information being spread by youis just a cover up to hide that folly!

I take strong offence to your propaganda against Indian Supreme Court. “Raj Karega Khalsa” is not banned in India and would never be. India is a democratic secular country which has given utmost respect to Sikhs. I wish you had heard PM Narendra Modi Ji on June 24th, 2018 Mann Ki Baat edition where he talked about Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s teaching and exhorted people to join in 550th celebration of Parkash Utsav of Guru Sahib.

Your only motive behind this slanderous campaign, lies, baseless stories is to misguide the Sikh community so that Sikhs should wage a war against India and you may show this as an achievement to your ISIS bosses.

I challenge you to show me a court order copy which says that saying Raj Karega Khalsa is banned in India.

If you show such a copy – I would quit politics the very next day!

I reiterate that ‘Raj Karega Khalsa’ is very much part of Gurbani and daily Ardas done by the Sikhs and no court has ever banned and no one can ban such slogan which is inseparable part of Sikh way of life.

I request my Sikh brethren to ignore this crazy evil man Gopal Chawla who has now become the mouthpiece of Hafeez Saeed and their only agenda is to work for disintegration of  the country and harming the Sikh community maximum. Sikhs were always loyal to India, have already led from the front against the adversaries of the country and will continue to serve the nation… Mr Gopal Chawla, you may note this in your diary!

Why I am demanding separate religious identity for Sikhs

Even when we all are one; for all legal purposes and to do away with confusion as well as discrimination; there is a need to amend Article 25 to give Sikhs a separate religious identity.

I have urged members  in Delhi Assembly to pass a resolution  to support demand of separate Sikh identity in the nation for which a minor constitutional amendment is required.
During my address in Vidhan Sabha, I reiterated that it needs to be recommended to Govt. of India to amend the article 25 clause (2) sub clause (b) read with explanation II of the Constitution of India in order to equate the Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs with Hindus as these are separate religions. The obvious object of Article 25 is to remove a patent cause of inequality. Article 25 is an article of faith in constitution, incorporated in recognition of the principle that the real test of true democracy is the ability of even an insignificant minority to find its identity under the country’s constitution. Under Article 25 clause 2 sub clause (b) read with explanation II, “the reference to HINDUS shall be construed as including a reference to persons professing the Sikh, Jains or Buddhist religion, and the reference to HINDU RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS shall be construed accordingly.

I feel that the inclusionary definition relating to Sikh, Jains and Buddhist religions as included in the Hindu religion, though recognizing the distinctiveness of these religions on the face of it, has led to unavoidable confusion about the independent identity of these religions, thus defeating the object of Article 25.

I have appealed to  all the Members of the House that it is must to pass this resolution  so that the discrimination done to Buddhist, Jain and Sikhs should be removed and the Parliament of India should duly amend the Article 25 of the constitution of India because welfare of the people is the ultimate goal of all laws and state action and above all the constitution.

This discrimination is on since decades and Sikhs and other minority communities were struggling to get justice on this issue. It is an appropriate time that when Delhi Assembly and other state assemblies pass such resolution to support the demand of these minorities.
I have appealed to the Speaker to adopt his resolution for passing in the assembly and gave notice for the same.
