150 years of Kuka Movement

Namdharis can have whatever they want: CM

Tribune News Service

Bhaini Sahib (Ludhiana), April 15

Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today regretted that the national heroes were gradually being forgotten. He said a fresh movement needed to be started across the country for creating awareness among the masses, particularly the youth, about national heroes like Satguru Ram Singh.

Addressing a function organised by the state government in the presence of Satguru Jagjit Singh, head of the Namdhari sect, here today to mark 150 years of the Kuka movement, Badal pointed out that these heroes had made great sacrifices for the whole country. But unfortunately it was being made out as if they belonged to Punjab only. He pointed out functions in memory of other heroes like Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Shaheed Udham Singh, Lala Lajpat Rai and others remain restricted to Punjab.

Although Badal made no announcement about any special scheme today, he said whatever orders there would be from the darbar, he would abide by them. Later he told reporters, “I have given them a signed blank paper and they can have whatever they want.â€

Leader of the Opposition Rajinder Kaur Bhattal while appreciating the path set by the Namdharis, said it was high time that the modern and future generations were told about their great sacrifices for the freedom of the country.

Vishwa Hindu Parishad general secretary Ashok Singh lauded the contribution of the Namdhari darbar towards social awareness and cow protection, in particular.

Prominent among those present included Lok Sabha deputy speaker Charanjit Singh Atwal, Punjab Assembly deputy speaker Satpal Gosain, minister Hira Singh Gabria, local Akali leader Inder Iqbal Singh Atwal, SAD general secretary Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal, state BJP president Avinash Rai Khanna, chief parliamentary secretary Jagdish Sawhney.

Interestingly, Satguru Jagjit Singh left the function while Badal was still delivering his presidential address.

"Badal pointed out that these heroes had made great sacrifices for the whole country. But unfortunately it was being made out as if they belonged to Punjab only..."

the " indians" have trouble accpeting the Guru Teg Bahadur became shaheed to save the Hindus from Aurangzeb, and have been teaching since the 1950s that Guru Ji was a rebel who was exeucted by aurangzeb. What doz Babal expect from these people that they dont know about Bhai Ram Singh's kurbani and of all the Sikhs kurbani in ending the raaj? As far as they are concerned it was mahatma and nehru who gave the most sacrifice.

Reminds me of a line by Sant Jarnail Singh of Bhindran" why do we (sikhs) have to give a glass of blood to recieve a drop of water?"

chatanga, who are 'hindu's'?

according to piara singh padam, it was pundit kirpal ram (the teacher of sanskrit to guru gobind singh ji) who had asked guru tegh bahadur for assistance on behalf of his kashmiri brahman pundit clan. Wouldn't it be more correct to say it was a 'possible' gursikh (as he later was part of the darbar at anandpur sahib) that the sacrifice were for, or for the kashmiri brahmans??

kashmiri brahmans= hindu but hindu does not = kashmiri brahmans
