Congress leader and Punjab Minister, during his visit to Pakistan, was seen hugging that country's Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa

After Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu praised Pakistan for respecting Sikhs, a video surfaced on social media in which a Pakistani cop can be seen provoking the Sikhs to rise against ‘oppressive’ India

New Delhi: In a major embarrassment for Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu a video has surfaced in which a cop from Pakistan Police is provoking the Sikhs to revolt against India. In the video, the cop can be heard urging the Sikhs to rise against the oppression. The cop goes on to say that Sikhs in India are facing oppression from the Indian regime and that they should rise against their oppressors.

This is a tight slap on the face of Sidhu who is playing politics in the name of Sikh and keeps on praising Pakistan every now and then. A senior Shiromani Akali Dal leader called this a tight slap on Sidhu’s face and slammed him for playing into the hands of Pakistan.

Speaking at literature festival the cricketer turned politician had earlier said that travel experience in Pakistan is better than South India.

“For me, when I travel to South, I can't understand the language. Not that I dont like the food, but I cannot have it for a long time, the culture is totally different. When I got to Pakistan, the language is the same, like you know, when you abuse in English 10 times, one abuse in Punjabi overpowers all,” he had said.

Sidhu’s visit to Pakistan for attending Imran Khan’s swearing-in ceremony generated widespread condemnation from all quarters.

After returning from Pakistan he had claimed that Islamabad will open the corridor of Kartarpur Sahib on the occasion of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, which will be celebrated next year. However, external affairs minister (EAM) Sushma Swaraj issued a clarification and said that there was no official communication from the Pakistani government for establishing the corridor.
