“From Sabat Khalsa ‘Jathedar’ Baljit Singh Daduwal to Simranjit Singh Mann who leads SAD (A) and who is also known for his pro Khalistani ideology, various Khalistani extremist from across the globe are supporting are joining Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and are joining the party.”
Sikh preacher and hardliner Baljit Singh Daduwal had come out in full Public support of AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal and wished to honor him publicly. His wish might not have fulfilled in wake of his arrest in sedition charges but there is no dearth of support to AAP from the ranks of extremist background.
Latest to join the bandwagon is SAD (A) chief Simranjit Singh Mann who is known for his pro Khalistani ideology and has always been in vociferous in raising the demand of separate state. Mann made a statement at a village Khusropur with journalists that his party would join hands with AAP in 2017 assembly polls.
At the recent ‘Sarbat Khalsa’ movement held on 10 November 2015, resolutions were passed that included the demand for a separate Sikh nation. What is believed to be a religious congregation, Sarbat Khalsa turned out to be Khalistani stage later and all the prominent AAP leaders including Kejriwal were witnessed endorsing the views.
It is pertinent that Punjab police had arrested Simranjit Singh Mann along with three other radical Sikh leaders – Harbir Singh, Mohkam Singh and Gurdeep Singh post Sarbat Khalsa movement. And, now majority of the Sikh hardliners have joined AAP and rest of them are supporting party ideology.
What began as supporting Khalistani ideologue has turned into a dangerous contour with many Sikh hardliners joining the party and AAP getting huge funding from Sikh separatists from across the globe.
Controversial Aam Aadmi Party is leaving no stone unturned to make its mark in forthcoming assembly polls in Punjab and it not even shying away from garnering support of Sikh hardliners. But peace-loving Punjabis will not let any outsider to disrupt peace & harmony of the state and AAP will have to pay a price for their misdeeds.
