RE: BHAI DEEP SINGH SIDHU: IMPACT ON SIKH POLITICS IN PUNJAB & DIASPORA
February 16, 2022
Over the past several days, panth dardi in Punjab and beyond have been reflecting on the loss of Bhai Deep SIngh Sidhu who was a naujawan full of promise and had captured the hearts and minds of the Sikh panth through his eloquent articulation of Sikh resistance.
In key moments on national Indian television, he shifted the discourse and defied the hyper nationalist rhetoric of Indian media–refusing to fall into their trap of condemning Sikh shaheeds.
As we step into this new era of our history, panth dardi naujawan around the world will play a pivotal role in how the future of Punjab and the entire region will be shaped as the fault lines and fractures within India deepen and geopolitical tension rises in South Asia.
Driven by naam bani da abhiyaas and informed by critical analysis of our concrete realities, our commitment to Khalistan must be grounded in a defiant commitment to collective grassroots struggle built around 'apan hathhi apna, appe hi kaaj svariyai'.
