Sikh minority also become insecure after Muslims in India

Sikh minority also become insecure after Muslims in India

NEW DELHI (92 News) – Fascist Modi government continued to snatch religious freedom from minorities, with the dominant ideology of Hindutva and putting Sikh community in danger after Kashmiri Muslims in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK). Hitler Modi’s supporter Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy hurts Sikhs’ sentiments by calling for withdrawing the ongoing work on the Kartarpur corridor project with Pakistan. BJP’s new move has been revealed by its Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament (MP) when he stirred another controversy within India by asking to abandon the Kartarpur corridor. The minister dictating tyranny and oppression has hurt the religious sentiments of the Sikh community members who have been awaiting opening of the Kartarpur corridor for decades. He said that work on the Kartarpur Corridor project should be stopped in the interest of the nation and there should be no talks with Pakistan on any issue. “In my view, in the interest of the nation, the work (on Kartarpur corridor) should not move ahead. Whatever work has taken place (on the project), let it stop there,” said Swamy, talking to reporters on the sidelines a seminar here. Asserting that there should be no talks with Pakistan on any issue, Swamy said the neighbouring country should not be given any excuse, including the Kartarpur corridor project, for for any talk. “We should not give any excuse to Pakistan for dialogue on any issue and show it to the world […] We should not have any relation with Pakistan,” he added. Asked if Sikhs’ sentiment would not be hurt on stopping the Kartarpur corridor project, Swamy said, “I understand Sikhs sentiments very well and I have always supported Sikhs.” “Sikhs should understand that Pakistan’s intentions are bad and they have to be set right first,” he said. The corridor is aimed at connecting Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur in Pakistan’s Narowal district with the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Gurdaspur district of Punjab. In Kartarpur Sahib, Guru Nanak spent the last 18 years of his life. India and Pakistan agreed to lay the corridor in November last year. The MP’s remarks are an echo of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) line on Hindu supremacist ideology. Taken aback by Swamy’s comment, Sikh organisations and the opposition criticized at Swami to desist from commenting on such sensitive issues.
