November 9, 2014 | By

Amritsar, Punjab: With the rise of Bhartiya Janta Party, backed by the Hindutva Rashtriya Swayam Sewaksangh (RSS), to political power in India there are strong apprehension that process of assimilation of diverse cultures and religious, linguistic and ethnic entities in to Hindutva fold will be turned to full swing.

RSS’s offensive against distinct Sikh identity is a known fact. In past years also the RSS used divergent tools to degenerate the uniqueness of the Sikh identity. Formation and functioning of Rashtriya Sikh Sangat (also called RSS) was a major step in this regard. The Rashtriya Sikh Sangat was declared anti-Sikh organization by the then Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Joginder Singh Vedanti.

It is notable that since the formation of BJP government in Punjab the RSS has put Punjab on it’s radars. There is unusual rise in RSS activity in Punjab.

It’s an issue of concern among the Sikh circles that what sort of strategy the RSS might adopt to pursue it’s anti-Sikh agenda in Punjab?

Recent media reports suggest that the RSS might use it’s influence over established Sikh institutions to use them as bases for it’s activities.

As per information the Amritsar based Chief Khalsa Diwan (CKD) has allowed he Akhil Bhartya Vidyarthi Prishad (ABVP) to hold it’s India level conference. The conference is set to be held at Chief Khalsa Diwan from November 14 to 16, 2014.

ABVP is a student wing of Bhariya Janta Party (BJP) and the RSS. Around four thousand activists of the ABVP are expected to attend the conference that might see participation of RSS leaders as well.
