    The Narendra Modi government has ‘prima facie’ discriminated against the 500-member Sikh community in Kutch, a report by the National Commission for Minorities says.

    The government had ordered the Sikhs to sell their land and return to Punjab because they were not Gujaratis, citing the Bombay Tenancy and Agricultural Lands Act, 1948.

    The commission strongly disapproved of the interpretation that only Gujarati farmers could own or buy land in the state. The Sikh farmers’ land accounts have already been frozen. '

    “Modi, who has the habit of terrorising the minorities in Gujarat, was in this case victimising the Sikh farmers,” commission member Ajaib Singh said in the report.

    The government’s order was struck down by the Gujarat HC but the verdict was challenged in the Supreme Court.

    The commission has asked the Gujarat government to accept the high court’s verdict. Modi was also requested to administer a national minority scholarship programme and set up a state minorities commission.

    Singh also wrote to Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal to intervene in the matter.

    ‘Expose Modi’s lies’
    Rahul Gandhi on Monday directed Gujarat party leaders to expose Narendra Modi’s “dangerous politics and lies”and to focus on issues to build pressure on the BJP government.

    WTH man.... How biased this article is....
    National Commission of Minority....Huh....
    "Government ordered sikhs to sell THEIR land & return to Punjab because they're not Gujarati ??"

    Bombay Tenancy & Agricultural Land Act is a reference.... So act itself is discriminating ??

    Issue is old and represented very very poorly or should I say its nothing but propaganda.

    HT political editor is Vinod Sharmaji, who is an undercover Congress chap and who has been rewarded with the post of a Member, Minority Commission.

    In 2004, he led the first ever delegation of Indian journalists to what is called PoK and Northern Areas as part of a peace exchange that included a similar visit by Pakistani journalists to the Indian side of Jammu and Kashmir.

    Notwithstanding, what is the problem?

    Why have the Sikh farmers been asked to go?

    They are industrious and are very productive farmers.

    In Canada, they have transformed vast areas and made them agriculturally productive and so have they done so in California and elsewhere.

    National Commission of Minority's credibility itself is questionable, 'Modi has habit of terrorising the minority' ?

    Sikhsiyasat(the original source article is from this site) and other non-resident sikh sites are all Khalistani sympathising Pak/Brit-loving cesspools. They must only be treated with contempt.

    @VIP can you find us more details on this issue ?

    If Guj govt has done this there might be a reason or it is not represented fairly.

    How can Indian citizens be debarred from living in any state in the country ?

    Indian Media in Bed with Politicans

    This research is being shared with us by a diligent reader on how deep the Media connections go. Puts the entire media bias in perspective.

    "1. Hindustan Times – Shobhna Bhartia, owner and editor-in-chief of Hindustan Times is a Congress MP from Rajya Sabha.

    2. Vinod Sharma, HT Political Affairs editor, is essentially a Congress spokesman on all TV panel discussions, because once his boss’ term gets over, he will be looking out for her RS seat next

    3. Barkha Dutt and Vir Sanghvi, famous Congress stooges (and intermediaries for UPA allies) who were exposed in the Radiagate scandal, and are virtual Congress spokespersons in their capacities as electronic media personalities, are the ones who write opinion and op-ed columns most frequently (once every week) on the editorial pages of HT. In return, Barkha and Sanghvi are rewarded with Padma Shris and other monetary compensation by the Nehru dynasty or Congress party.

    4. NDTV’s promoters are Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy. Radhika’s sister Brinda Karat is a famous CPM leader (well known for anti-Baba Ramdev views) and Brinda’s husband Prakash Karat is the CPM Politburo General Secretary (well known for preferring Congress over BJP). And Prannoy Roy’s first cousin is the famous far-leftist pro-Maoist-Naxalite pro-Kashmiri-terrorists “intellectual” Arundhati Suzanna Roy.

    5. NDTV’s Barkha Dutt’s reality has already been exposed by me in above section.

    6. NDTV’s Sonia Singh is the wife of Uttar Pradesh Congress MP, Union minister and ex-princely state ruler, Mr. R. P. N. Singh, who is one of the fastest rising stars in the Congress party. If you remember, Sonia Singh is a very high-profile anchor on NDTV whose pro-Congress anti-BJP bias is legendary.

    7. NDTV’s Nidhi Razdan (high-profile anchor of Left Right Centre) is the current girlfriend of J&K CM Omar Abdullah (after Omar recently divorced his wife of several years and mother of his two children, Payal). Nidhi Razdan is also famous for her legendary pro-Congress and anti-BJP bias.

    8. CNN-IBN : Rajdeep Sardesai’s wife and co-promoter of CNN-IBN, Sagarika Ghose, who anchors Face the Nation and is famous journalist of CNN-IBN (well, her hubby is the owner-editor-in-chief after all) are famous Congress stooges.

    9. Sagarika’s father Bhaskar Ghose was a famous sarkari babu and was made the chief of Prasar Bharati (Doordarshan) during Indira and Rajiv regimes. Bhaskar Ghose was well-known for personal loyalty to the Nehru dynasty, and now his daughter and son-in-law are rewarded with their own channel to do Congress propaganda.

    10. In fact Sagarika’s extended family even consists of her aunts Ruma Pal (former Supreme Court justice and a close friend of the Nehru family) and Arundhati Ghose (former diplomat and Indian ambassador to various countries, predictably, under Congress regimes).

    11. Let’s now come to another famous CNN-IBN media personality who also writes columns frequently for Hindustan Times — Karan Thapar. What you may not know is that the Nehru family itself is related, through blood and marriages, to the high-profile Thapar family. India’s Army chief during the 1962 debacle against China, Gen. P. N. Thapar, is brother-in-law of Nayantara Sehgal, the daughter of Vijaylakshmi Pandit and niece of Jawaharlal Nehru. Gen. Thapar’s son is pro-Congress journalist Karan Thapar. Gen. Thapar’s sister is Romila Thapar, a famous “top” typical JNU Nehruvian communist ideologue historian, who gets to write our textbooks and pollute them with pro-Congress Marxist propaganda.

    12. The HIndu – The Worst – N. Ram, owner and editor-in-chief (till February 2012) of The Hindu, was once a vice president of the Students Federation of India. SFI is the students’ wing of the CPM.

    13. P. Sainath of the The Hindu (acclaimed journalist well known for his, again, unsurprisingly, typical left-wing Nehruvian communism ideology), is the nephew of Congress politician V. Shankar Giri and the grandson of V. V. Giri, ex-President of India and famous Congress politician. Giri was especially known to be one of the first few staunch loyalists of Indira, and whom Indira fielded for President elections against her own party’s Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy, and who ultimately became the cause of the first high-profile split in the Indian National Congress into Congress (O) and Congress (I) — almost all the pre-independence regional stalwarts split away to join Congress (O) or form their own state parties, and the rest including Giri (all the loyalists of the Nehru family staying on with Indira).

    14. Or even what about little known News24 Hindi media channel? Owned by ex-journalist and editor Rajiv Shukla, famous Congress MP in Rajya Sabha, Union minister, industrialist, BCCI vice president and IPL chairman.

    15. Or even what about little known Lokmat (and IBN Lokmat) that is Marathi newspaper (and channel) in Maharashtra? Owner and editors-in-chief are the brothers Vijay Darda (Congress MP) and Rajendra Darda (Congress MLA in Maharashtra, and minister in state govt).

    16. Or even the other bigger and smaller media houses, such as The Times of India and Indian Express, where the Nehru dynasty has managed to infiltrate its loyalists such as Dileep Padgaonkar and Shekhar Gupta, who are essentially paid stooges of the Congress party.

    17 Vinod Mehta - Outlook editor has been well known to take anti BJP stand.

    The Congress (in fact just the one single family — the Nehru dynasty) has been in power for 56 of the last 65 years of independence. This matters a LOT. Personal relationships have been built, blackmail-worthy secrets have been spied, monumental wealth has been accumulated … all by the one single Nehru dynasty (and its family-business-cum-political-party aka Congress) that helps it maintain its tight irongrip over not just the entire Indian mainstream media, but also deep into our bureaucracy, our governmental institutions, and even our journalism and mass media colleges and grad schools.

    We have probably not even scratched the surface of the network of family and personal relationships through which the Nehru dynasty has completely dominated and controlled the entire intellectual, historian and journalist landscape of India. And we haven’t even talked about the monumental wealth or the blackmailing secrets. All because the one single dynasty got to rule over India for 60 years uninterrupted. It matters a LOT.

    The typical JNU Nehruvian communist left-libbers ideologues have really perpetrated some kind of stranglehold on India’s journalism, media and intellectual space.

    Almost all pro-BJP (or even centre-right ideologues) journalists have been slowly thrown out of their jobs due to pressure from the Congress and the Nehru family.

    Even the great venerable Ramnath Goenka, frustrated and broken by repeated I-T raids and ED investigations ultimately had to fire Arun Shourie twice from the Indian Express, which was once the best Indian newspaper in the 1970s and 80s. That was the team — Goenka the owner, Shourie the editor, and S. Gurumurthy the fearless journalist, that brought political heavyweights like Indira Gandhi down on her knees and even took on corporate honchos like Dhirubhai Ambani. (Ramnath Goenka inspired the Mithun Chakraborty character and S. Gurumurthy inspired the R. Madhavan character in the Ambani biopic “Guru”.)

    But very few centre-right ideologues are left in India’s media space today, that too in minor publications like The Pioneer. Almost all the mainstream media houses have been thoroughly infiltrated and coerced into towing the Congress’ line, sometimes just through ideology and relationships, and not even money power.

    The Congress party essentially owns and controls every single mainstream media house in India, including Hindustan Times, The Times of India, NDTV, CNN-IBN, The Hindu, Tehelka, Outlook, etc"

    These sikhs have been living somewhere in kutch from a long time,government gave them land on the basis of some conditions and now Government is asking land back as its government's land, government is ready to pay them compensation but farmers don't want to leave. Dispute is there, both parties are in talk and also fighting legal battle in court.

    This is some superficial info, but it has nothing to do with minority-majority.

    Media and Congress already tried to portray Modi as anti-farmer and now they are playing minority card to pressurize the government, and we all know how our minority commission works when it comes to Modi. Such demonization is very unfortunate, look at the title of the article. Huh....happens only in India.

    Old habits die hard. Once a dictator, always a dictator.

    Large scale demolition of temples, followed by dargahs and mosques, and when faced with protests, engineering and instigating riots, to pursue his agenda, shows what could happen if this man were to become the PM.

    Sure, he has shown development, but it has come in the back of strict authoritarianism with the threat of death and violence in response to any disobedience. In the similar backdrop of Mao's authoritarian rule, even Deng achieved major development in PRC, yet, there is not dearth of criticism for PRC, from some of the very people who praise Modi.

    Strange are the ways of the world.

    I know why you stand by what you said because
    1. You're leftist
    2. You have no real idea what's the ground situations, you just read such biased reports
    3. You conclude on the basis of biased reports with essence of 1st point.

    Hence, production of clueless and idiotic comments. Minorities aren't discriminated in Gujarat, he has not orchestrated any riots and he effectively give peaceful environment to people of Gujarat from such religious clashes for past 11 years.

    What is this footnote doing in this article ?? It has no relation with the issue,too.

    Or is it a signal to Congi propagandists to raise such biased issues in social media ??

    If you say so. How do you define leftist? Given my stance on Right to Bear Arms (in the US or India), I'd be a radical right winger.
    Yes, I have heard this before, and it is true I do not have the complete details. I can still prove some of my points, if challenged.

    Thanks for your candid evaluation. I politely reject it though.
