    Youth of Punjab facing multiple challenges: Dal Khalsa chief
    By Hainder Singh


    Hoshiarpur, Punjab (March 21, 2013): Referring to the incident of thrashing of women, her father and brother in a brutal manner and in full public view by Tarn Taran police, Dal Khalsa chief H S Dhami said its utter failure of the political leadership in disciplining the police force.

    ‘Sikh Youth of Punjab’ (SYP) expressed anguish and concern over the rise of drug menace, apostasy, criminalization of politics, vulgarity in songs and sexual violence against women.

    Mr Dhami was speaking at a public function organized by party’s youth wing ‘Sikh Youth of Punjab’ (SYP) to express their anguish and concern over the rise of drug menace, apostasy, criminalization of politics, vulgarity in songs and sexual violence against women.

    In his address to the youth, he said around 66 per cent of India’s population is under the age of 35. He said every successful process of transition, whether in politics or other sphere, requires a mix of the wisdom of experience and the exuberance of youth. He said the youth of Punjab faces multiple challenges yet hoped that younger generation has commitment and passion to move forward while tackling all problems. He rued criminalization of politics as it’s obstructing the path of those youth who are morally upright and honest and wanted to serve the people with clean hands.

    Carrying saffron flags and placards with messages written on it, hundreds of youth associated with SYP participated in the street show aimed to awaken the people against these social evils and urged the society at large to wake up to the occasion.

    Drug menace has reached alarming position in Punjab. The future of girls and boys are in danger. Parents, teachers, doctors, policemen, politicians and religious leadership, we all are responsible. Society reflects what it is composed of, said SYP head Ranbir Singh while addressing the gathering.

    “We believe at one level, it was a part of the design to engage the Punjabi youth in drugs as a weapon to check their political consciousness and to counter the fighting spirit in them,” he said.

    Group’s vice-president Paramjit Singh said the society must learn to respect and protect women’s dignity, modesty and freedom.

We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism.
