Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Saturday called upon all parties and leaders in Punjab to counter the “propaganda to demonise Sikhs and other Punjabis”. “I urge all political parties and leaders to close ranks and give a united call against vicious propaganda to vilify and demonise #Sikhs and other Punjabis. We must jointly condemn the vicious attempts of some anti-Punjab and anti-Sikh forces to paint our youth as anti-national and terrorist. Punjabis, especially Sikhs, have made unparalleled sacrifices,” Sukhbir tweeted.
He reeled off a list of names, from Bhagat Singh and Sukhdev to Rajguru and Lala Lajpat Rai, from among those who made such sacrifices. “Political parties must jointly urge media houses to stop anti-Sikh vilification. We appeal to all our countrymen not to be misled by the anti-Punjab and anti-Sikh propaganda. Our constitution declares India to be a Union of States, with ‘unity in diversity’ as its foundational principle. Let’s respect that,” he posted.
