Self-proclaimed President of Khalistan showers PM Modi with praises

London [UK]: Sewa Singh Lalli, the self-proclaimed president of Khalistan, has welcomed Prime Minister Modi’s announcement of observing December 26 as “Veer Bal Diwas”.

“The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi warmly welcomes the martyrdom of Sahibzada Zorawar Singh Ji and Sahibzada Fateh Singh Ji, as Veer Bal Diwas in India. The history of Sahibzada’s unique sacrifice can now be read in government institutions and schools, colleges, educational institutions all over India. It is the duty of the responsible Sikh leaders in particular to respect this decision and to further encourage the historic decision taken in favour of Sikhism”, Lalli wrote in Punjabi, in his post on social media.

“It would not be wise to question the sentiments of the government for no reason. Such a historic decision in favour of the Sikh community could not have been taken without goodwill. One must have the courage to say what is wrong and what is right, and one must have the courage to deal with time”, Lalli wrote. “Political issues are different in their own right. Centuries later, this government has encouraged and initiated some virtuous deeds towards Sikhism. Let’s encourage it even more. Hints are enough for the wise”, he further added.

On the occasion of Guru Parv on January 9, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced on Twitter the celebration of Veer Bal Diwas. ”Today, on the auspicious occasion of Parkash Purab of Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, I am honoured to share that starting this year, 26th December shall be marked as ‘Veer Bal Diwas’. This is a fitting tribute to the courage of the Sahibzades and their quest for justice.” the PM twitted.

The 10th Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s 6-year and 9-year old sons, Sahibzada Fateh Singh Ji and Sahibzada Zorawar Singh Ji were bricked alive on December 26, 1705 by Wazir Khan, on the orders of Aurangzeb as they refused to convert to Islam.
