Hoshiarpur:Continuing with the practice of honouring Sikh historical personalities, Dal Khalsa has resolved to organise a ‘Khalsa March’ to pay its tributes to Sikh warrior of yesteryear Baba Baghel Singh, who is credited with the unfurling of Sikh Flag atop the Red Fort in 1783.
To commemorate the historic event, popularly called as “Fateh Divas,” a convention would be organised on March 15 at Hoshiarpur. Subsequently, a march would be held in the city.
Dal Khalsa secretary Ranbir Singh and SYP head Paramjit Singh Tanda announced the programme and said that their aim was to ignite the spirit of Sikh Sovereignty in the present generation and to connect them with their historical and cultural roots.
They said the interests of Sikhs and Punjab were the sole concern of Baba Baghel Singh, while the focus of the present Akali leadership was to mint money and enjoy power. “We are passing through a critical phase and there was a need to re-strategize our plans to attain the Panthic objectives,” he added.
The meeting took serious view of the “growing attack” on the students holding independent beliefs and oppressed classes from the RSS and its affiliated ABVP. “The ABVP under the patronage of their political bosses in power were threatening their critics including Gurmehar Kaur who dare to speak against their hooliganism,” the youth leader said.
Justifying their support to students of Ramjas College Delhi and Panjab University, Chandigarh who faced the wrath of the ABVP, they asserted that Khalsa was created to confront the oppressive class regardless of the religion it represented. “In order to thwart the nefarious designs of the fascist forces, we would formalize the strategy during the convention,” said they.
Those present on this occasion were Nobeljit Singh, Paramjit Singh Mand, Harjot Singh, Gurpreet Singh and Manjit Singh and others.
