February 10, 2021, Asserting that the farmers’ protest is not a Sikh struggle, Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee president Bibi Jagir Kaur asked PM Narendra Modi to manifest how much proud he is of the community.
She said: “If you realize the Sikh contribution to India’s freedom struggle, resolve their issues. And farmers’ issue is not a Sikh issue but of farmers of all India. Since Sikhs are born warriors and distinguishable by appearance, some people labelled it a Sikh cause, which is incorrect.”
Earlier, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised Sikhs for their sacrifices in a parliament speech on February 8, 2021.
"This country is proud of every Sikh. What have they not done for this country? Whatever respect we give them will always be less. I've been fortunate to spend crucial years of my life in Punjab," said Modi.
