How sikhs can get closer to Haryana jaats politically!


Recommended Posts

Sir Chhoturam was a great jaat leader who did great things for the farmers, both sikh and non sikh, before 1947 in undivided Punjab.

Lately, haryana jaats hv started becoming sikhs. They almost worship Sir Chhoturam. We Sikhs shud also acknowledge Sir Chhoturam as a great pro farmer, pro sikh leader.

This will bring us closer to Haryana jaats who are interested in sikhi.

Sardar Simranjit Singh Mann has declared to establish a university on the name of Sir Chhoturam.

Very good book in Punjabi on Sir Chottu Ram by Prof. Basant Singh Brar.

Professor Sahib also wrote a short article based on his book for a newspaper 'Punjabi jagran' which I m attaching.

Had a talk with prof. Basant Singh Brar.

His no. Is +919814941214

Some things professor sahib told about Sir Chhoturam :

1. He was given title of 'Sir' by britishers.

2. He once said that britishers are white Banniyas and are better administrators than the Indian politicians whom he called black banniyaas.

There was great unemployment among jaat youth and sir Chhoturam encouraged jaat youth to enrol in British army so that they can get employment as well as exposure of the world.

3. He strongly disliked Nehru, Gandhi and jinnah.

4. He was strongly against the formation of Pakistan and wanted an undivided Punjab.

5. As a minister in undivided Punjab, he made a law that farmer's land cannot be forcibly taken away from him in the event of non payment of loan or debt.

This law was scrapped by India in 1951 but still exists in Pakistan and Pakistan farmers thank sir Chhoturam for making this law.

6. Sir Chhoturam died in 1945.

7. He was the main reason behind the creation of bhakra dam.

8. He was a very secular man and loved Sikhs, Muslims and Hindus.

I personally hv great respect for sir Chhoturam. He could forsee that indian politicians will turn out to be more corrupt and cruel than britishers.

Indian rulers attacked Harmandir Sahib 4 times. Did British attack Harmandir Sahib?

BJP/RSS writes dirty things about Sikhi and say sikhi is just a branch of Hinduism. Did British do anything similar?

I live in india and it's a totally corrupt system. There is no justice and every govt. Officer/ police officer is corrupt.

We should remember all our enemies. Historically that has been the mughals, the afhghanis...paithans? The british, and the three territories created by the british. Hindustan, Pakistan, Kashmir. Historically jave done us great harm. Despite saving them from the Mughals, the Pathans..er.. whatever, and the british.

Whilst it is great that if anyone from whatever background becomes Sikh and we welcome them into Panth.

The fact remains that the likely primary overwhelming source of new Sikhs outside Punjab are the so-called Dalits and poor Indians. British Sikh Council (formerly known as the Scottish Sikh Council) are doing a good job supporting Sikligar Sikhs too it must be said but collectively we definitely cannot ignore non-Punjabi's given that 90% of Punjabi's could care less about Sikhi after 500 plus years.

Whilst there are some economically distressed Jaats from Haryana that were demanding reservation who are against the BJP there are also a greater number of wealthy Jaats who have been intimately connected to anti-Sikh power in Delhi for a long time like Sajjan Kumar and the billionaire types that owns DLF Land that built Gurgaon/Gurugram etc and Indian Army chiefs like General Malik and General Dalbir Singh Suhag so there is very low likelihood of these wealthier Jaats suddenly becoming Sikh when they are so closely connected with the epicentre of power in the country (ie the status quo and Hindutva suits them just fine).

However, the communities we need to absolutely focus are the historical communities that held Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj dear before Nehru became Prime Minister (but who have been systematically estranged from the Panth over the last 75years via financial pressure).

These erstwhile sehajdhari Nanakpanthi Sikhs number 100million! (These lost "Rangrete" are "Guru ke Bete") 

This includes all those tens of millions in India of ancestry associated with leatherworking professions like Dhan Dhan Baba Ravidas Ji Maharaj, all those tens of millions of non-Punjabi Bhangi's who have been estranged from the Panth from similar backgrounds to Shaheed Bhai Jiwan Singh Ji and all those tens of millions of erstwhile Sikhs of Kabirpanthi background that revere Dhan Dhan Baba Kabir Ji Maharaj, Sanatani's, Vanjara's, Assam Sikhs to name a few and many indigenous tribes where Dhan Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj had done parchaar.

Beyond that there are 250million so-called Dalits in India and 1,000million poor people in India who could tomorrow become sehajdhari Sikhs if we merely explain the basics of why Sikhi is the only truth that can uplift humanity.

However, instead of us doing the obvious outside in Punjab the enemies of the Panth are determined to detach all Sikhs of Ravidasi and Mazhabi ancestries in Punjab away from the Sikh Panth and re-brand our people (present day Sikhs) into tomorrow's Hindu Dera Ballan and Hindu Balmiki Dera apartheid worshippers as that would leave the Sikh Panth as a minority in Majha and Malwa by the time of the next census in 2031. There should be no bigger priority for Panth than supporting our brothers and sisters in east Punjab from these background and ensuring that each pind in Punjab (and locality in the West) only has one single united casteless Gurdwara. Without ensuring that, the Panth cannot progress.
