A View From Across the Ravi

rahulgandhi.jpgOR HOW NOT TO PULL A SIKH-RELATED PUBLICITY STUNT

I will leave the PR-stunt by Congress heir-apparent, Rahul Gandhi, son of Rajiv Gandhi, grandson of Indira Gandhi, and great-grandson of Nehru and his ill-advised (or rather ill-positioned pagri) to speak for itself. A pictures is worth 1000 words and ‘ridiculous’ is one of those that come near the top for this election stop near Takht Damdama Sahib.

On a bit of a serious note, although I hate writing short posts without analysis, I came across a finely-written article about the ‘Shoe-hurling Sardar and Deep-rooted Sikh Grievances‘ published in a Pakistani newspaper that I wanted to bring to our readers’ attention.

I initially cringed when I read stereotypical sentences, such as:

However, Sikhs are known for their forthrightness and carrying a level head in emotionally charged situations is not one of their strengths.

Eventually I got over it and just focused on the substance of the matter. Definitely worth a read.

For my previous coverage, see here and here.

    Don't be sentimental about this picture of Rahul Gandhi with the turban. Don't forget his grand mother attacked Harmandir Sahib and his father killed tens of thousands of innocent Sikhs in New Delhi and rest of India. Just a few days back he was in Golden Temple and shedding crocodile tears for the attack on Sikhs as his party was fielding Sajan Kumar and Tytler. Just yesterday he was campaigning for son of the butcher of Punjab Chief Minister Beant Singh who was given ticket of his party. Don't also forget his great grand father Nehru betrayed Sikhs in 1947 and was responsible for our enslavement.

    The absolutely ridiculous nature of this man, along with his hate-laced rant on Sikhs a few weeks ago, is eventually going to lead to a similar ending for him as his grandmother.
