Hindu dharma is implicitly at odds with monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical awakening... Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down he knows that a larger response is emerging even if at times this response appears in his eyes to be threatening.

Ban on turban is violation of human rights: Sikh Sangat

The Shiromani Committee of Rashtriya Sikh Sangat, an apex body of the organisation, has condemned the ban imposed by the Government of France on wearing turban by the Sikh students and described it as an open violation of the human rights. The committee, which met in Shri Guru Harikishan Secondary School, Bharatpur (Rajasthan) from March 8 to 9, further said the ban on turban is part of the Christians’ conspiracy against the Sikhs.

In a resolution, the Committee demanded to declare the Ram Sethu a national monument and scrap the Sethusamudaram Ship Canal Project forthwith. The resolution said the destruction of Ram Sethu would be disastrous and the government must not destroy the Sethu. In another resolution the Committee demanded declaration of the martyrdom day of Guru Teg Bahadur the Shahidi Diwas and it should be celebrated as a national festival. The Committee also discussed in detail the celebration of 300 years of making Shri Gurugranth Saheb as Guru. Shri Madhubhai Kulkarni, Akhil Bharatiya Bauddhik Pramukh of RSS and guide of the Sikh Sangat was also present at the meeting. Sardar Chiranjiv Singh, founder of the Sangat, Sardar Gurucharan Singh Gill, president of the Sangat and Shri Avinash Jaiswal, general secretary, also guided the delegates at the meeting.
