Sidelining Sikh Sentiments, Jathedar Mand Ends Bargari Morcha; Announces to Change Outline of Morcha

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—The Sarbat Khalsa appointed Takht Jathedars today announced to change the outline of the Bargari agitation while ending the ongoing strike named “Insaaf Morcha” in the grain market of Bargari. It is learnt that the Punjab government had almost convinced the Takht Jathedars to end the “Insaaf Morcha” ongoing at Bargari but the depiction of disagreement by the Sikh masses left no way out for the Takht Jathedars.

As soon as the Punjab cabinet minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa started addressing the Sikh gathering at Bargari, the Sikh masses started walking out of the venue. Observing the situation, Bajwa tried to convince the protesting Sikhs by saying that he had come there just on behalf of the Punjab government and taking decision to end the “Insaaf Morcha” is in the hands of Takht Jathedars.

The organizers of Bargari agitation including Baba Baljit Singh Daduwal tried to pacify the Sikh protesters by recalling the various “successes” of Bargari agitation but the Sikh protesters still remained unmoved.  At last, they convinced the Sikh attendees by saying that the decision of ending the Bargari agitation depends upon Bhai Dhian Singh Mand.

“We are not ending the agitation instead we’re changing its outline,” said Bhai Dhian Singh Mand while addressing the gathering at Bargari after two hours long deliberation with other Sikh leaders.

“We will not undergo any tactical deal with the Punjab government and will also ensure the release of Akal Takht Jathedar Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara” claimed Bhai Dhian Singh Mand watching no way out to get rid of Sikh wrath prevailing at the Bargari gathering today.

“I will stay in Bargari tomorrow to honor those who made contributions in the Bargari agitation and will pay obeisance at the sanctum sanctorum Sri Harmandir Sahib for the ‘successes’ witnessed by the Bargari agitation” he said while announcing to disclose the details of next phase later.

Jathedar Mand also refuted allegations that Panthik leaders misappropriated funds meant for the protest. He said organizers had spent Rupees 12.6 million of Rupees 14.8 million were received as donation in last 192 days.

It may be recalled here that Bhai Dhian Singh Mand had started a peaceful agitation seeking the following demands:

  • Release of political Sikh prisoners languishing in jails
  • Arrest and Punishment to those who committed sacrilege of a holy corpus of Sri Guru Granth Sahib stolen from village Burj Jawahar Singh Wala
  • The arrest of Police cops who opened fire on peacefully protesting Sikhs at Kotkapura and Behbal Klan

Till date, the Punjab government has only arrested Sirsa cult affiliated sacrilege culprits but failed to take any action against those ordering the sacrilege while sitting in the headquarters of Sirsa cult. Beside it, the Punjab government has recently ordered the release of political Sikh prisoner Bhai Dilbag Singh Bagaa while promising of releasing several others.

However, the Punjab government has depicted a full-fledged cooperative approach towards the Police cops responsible for opening firing on the peacefully protesting Sikhs at Kotkapura and Behbal Klan. The Punjab government gave enough time to the guilty Police cops to secure a stay against their arrest from the Punjab & Haryana High Court.

Punjab government’s cooperative approach towards the Police cops has made it clear that the victims of state excesses can’t expect justice in India as the state machinery will protect its tools at any cost.


  1. Maan. & Mand betrayed Sikhs 2nd time, they are just wasting time & energy of Sikhs & helping government to divert sikh sentiments.

  2. Mand & Maan betrayed kaum 2nd time. First time when they announced sarbat Khalsa & helped the government to end the anger of sikh panth & gave no plan to Sanger to stop beadbies.

    1. The Fresh Political Road Map- ‘a plan or strategy intended to achieve a particular goal’ for Punjab, India.

    2. “Won’t end protest, but will change its course, Dhian Singh Mand says at Bargari: Simranjit Singh Mann says arresting of all accused in sacrilege incidents is their foremost demand. Another one is to bring guilty policemen (Including Badal family for their planned crimes and sins) to book”.

    3. Bargari Morcha Drama Likely to End on 9 December 2018 or Thereafter Soon: Why?

    A. “Are Captain and Badals Families Ordering To End Bargari Morcha at the instance of the Indian agencies without getting the demands accepted like similar others always doing so in India? Why?

    B. Are All Indian Agencies (Central and States agencies) with the help of Captain and Badals Families etc out to harm and defaming Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims’s unity and harmony-synchronization physically, socially, religiously and politically with ulterior motives to rule over them in India?

    C. Have Captain and Badals Families at the instance of the Indian agencies without getting the demands accepted, agreed to hand over SGPC’s command to Bargari Morcha Dummy Leaders in order to harm and defaming Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims’s unity and harmony-synchronization physically, socially, religiously and politically with ulterior motives in India?

    D. Indians, Sikh and especially ‘The New Global World Order’ may ask answer for the detailed reasons of Cruelty and Unrest in India after 1947 by Indian Agencies or Was What”?


    (1) To implement in the letter and spirit the Justice Ranjit Singh Commission’s report (Now a public document), fully debated on August 28, 2018 in the Assembly of Punjab-The Punjab Vidhan Sabha as the SIT and the Justice Ranjit Singh Commission have already given detail at Dera Sacha Sauda followers in the sacrilege cases;

    (2) Also ‘indicted former Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal in the 2015 Guru Granth Sahib sacrilege case, adding that he was well aware of the situation developing at Kotkapura and the subsequent firings ordered’ as being a highly sensitive matter ignored, intentionally and deliberately, since then and being continued so ;

    (3) The firings ordered is being a highly sensitive matter and it was the most cruel act similar to ‘The Jallianwala Bagh massacre, also known as the Amritsar massacre, took place on 13 April 1919 when a crowd of nonviolent protesters, along with Baishakhi pilgrims, who had gathered in Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar, Punjab, were fired upon by troops of the British Indian Army under the command of Colonel Reginald Dyer’

    (4) To secure the release of Sikh political detainees, who have already served their jail terms immediately?

    BARGARI MORCHA DEMANDS: ‘The Fresh Political Road Map for Punjab, India’ must be considered as ‘Political Road Map for Punjab’ positively encouraging from oppression, misrule and injustice of ‘Badal Family’ towards justice, rule of law, dignified security and liberty for all subject to the criticism and fear under the head, ‘Bargari Morcha Drama Likely to End on 9 December 2018 or Thereafter Soon: Why’?

    With regards to all
