The so-called farmers’ agitation has been going on for more than two months. During the tractor parade, the ‘peaceful’ protesters turned into rioters to assault the on-duty policemen. More than 400 policemen suffered grievous injuries in the violence. They even raided the Red Fort and managed to hoist a flag that bore striking resemblance to the Khalistan flag.
The violence brought about a rude awakening in the ruling establishment and forced them to tighten the security measures.
The involvement of Khalistanis in the so-called farmer agitation was very clear from the outset, though the left-leaning media preferred to turn a blind eye to the fact. The Leftists and Islamists, taking advantage of the situation, gleefully incited the mobs on 26th January.
Now, the conspiracy to revive the Khalistan movement under the garb of farmers’ agitation is becoming increasingly clear. After the riot ‘toolkit’ shared by the so-called environmental activist of ‘How Dare You’ fame, Greta Thunberg, the union government plunged into action and started an investigation to probe the deep-rooted conspiracy and the elaborate preparation that went into it.
Things also came to light how the skimpily clad ‘singers’ and porn stars became ‘kisans’ overnight and started lecturing the government of the world’s largest democracy. It is really unfortunate that in India there are many people who think Mia Khalifa knows more about India’s Agri economy than Gita Gopinath, the Chief Economist of the International Monitory Fund (IMF).
Videos started circulating on social media that showed how the self-confessed Khalistanis are spitting venom against India with an express intention to defame it. Mo Dhaliwal, a well-known Khalistan activist, is seen in a video advocating the breaking up of India. During the ‘Chakka Jam’ a flag with the picture of the notorious Khalistan terrorist Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale was seen.
All these incidents send ominous signals to the people of the country.
It appears that Sikhs, just like Hindus, are the most confused people. They started supporting the Islamists in spite of the fact that most of the Sikh gurus were tortured to death by the Mughals. They also voted Congress Party to power in Punjab despite being aware of the atrocities perpetrated against Sikhs by Congress goons in the aftermath of the killing of Indira Gandhi. The Sikh community, along with Hindus, faced untold atrocities during the partition and continue to face persecution even now in Pakistan. Therefore, the Sikh community must come out of the illusion that they can achieve Khalistan with the support of Islamists.
If farm laws are illegitimate and unjust even the economic reforms that were introduced in 1991 under the stewardship of P. V. Narasimha Rao and Dr. Manmohan Singh should also be considered illegitimate and unjust. Therefore, can we go back to the pre-1991 era where unbridled socialism pushed India to the brink of bankruptcy?
The ongoing agitation is nothing about farmers and their interests. Khalistani separatists, disgruntled liberals, radical Islamists, and failed politicians all ganged up to settle scores against the Modi government. Their only motive is to defame the Indian government and derail India’s growth story.
