Khalistani ideologue Amritpal Singh Arrested:

Amritpal Singh is the leader of “Waris Punjab De,” a radical organisation founded by actor and activist Deep Sidhu, who died in a car accident last February.

Singh recently drew attention when supporters stormed a police station to protest the arrest of his key aide, kidnapping suspect Lovepreet Singh. He blamed the Punjab Police for the protest violence in Amritsar.

 

According to reports, internet service in Punjab will be suspended until Sunday. Following this, the Punjab Police took to their official Twitter account to urge people to maintain peace and harmony and to refrain from spreading panic, fake news, or hate speech. “The Punjab Police Department is working to maintain law and order,” the department tweeted.

 

Punjab: Radical Sikh preacher and ‘Waris Punjab De’ founder Amritpal Singh drew a comparison between the idea of a ‘Hindu Rashtra’ and that of ‘Khalistan’. In light of the Ajnala violence in Punjab, the preacher stated that the incident was “not violent enough”. Comparing the two ideologies, he said while Hindu Rashtra is “exclusive”, Khalistan is “pure”.

“If you say ‘Khalistan Zindabad’ is bad, you are attempting to challenge the Supreme Court; however, when someone says ‘Hindu Rashtra Zindabad,’ what exactly is ‘Hindu Rashtra’? Where has it been established? It does not make people feel threatened. The concept of Hindu Rashtra is diametrically opposed to the concept of Khalistan. It excludes any other identities; you are either a Hindu or dead. They don’t give you alternatives. However, the idea of Khalistan is so pure that it is the raj of Khalistan,” Amritpal told.
