Akalis Requested to Bring Sikhs Out of the
By Balbir Singh Sooch, Advocate, Ludhiana
The Sikhs policy
before independence remained that the Sikhs always took up an
independent attitude, not to oppose nationalism, but to see that
communalism did not succeed, at least at the expense of Sikhs.
view of this, “the Akalis made a rapprochement between them and
Congress, which promises to be truly national and non- communal.
With this view they began their history, and for this view they
have been fighting all along.
Sikhs history of nationalism in the declaration of Guru Nanak is

Sikh masses in dark for the purpose kept them divided in
different camps/groups to level them communal and lawless in
order to teach them a lesson to weaken them permanently as is

In the present
scenario and the changed circumstances, the Akalis and their
Members of Parliament should not follow the divisive policy or
any communal party to the advantage of any such secretly
planted leadership and trained for the disadvantage of Sikhs.
I also request to the Akalis by name like the Chief Minister
Parkash Singh Badal, Sukhbir ji, Captain Kanwaljit Singh and
others to bring Sikhs out of planned and so leveled communal
net to safeguard them and their future generations in
India. It is open secret that your personal,
social and political contacts and relations always remained very
cordial with the Congress party, known as main one of the
secular parties even in face of the injustice with Sikhs in
Attention Please: Akali Members of Parliament and others
concerned for necessary action.
