Addressing the thousands of people gathered in the meeting, Mr. Phoolka said “The honest officers are generally discriminated and corrupt officials are promoted to higher positions, by such political leaders.

Phoolka Launches Campaign for Justice

Mon, Mar 24, 2014 at 7:37 PM

Justice demanded for Gaganpreet Singh Nat 

Video on Reality Released by AAP
Ludhiana, March 24, 2014; (Punjab Screen Bureau): 
Ludhiana’s AAP candidate for Lok Sabha, Mr. Phoolka visited Gaganpreet Singh Nat’s family who was brutally murdered on the day of Holi. This condolence visit was followed up with a huge candle vigil to raise a voice against the local police who has been shamefully ignoring the case and has not taken a single step to investigate or even register an FIR for the murder.
Gaganpreet’s young sister and father have given a heart wrenching account of what has transpired with them during the candlelight vigil. A video made by AAP to this effect is being launched tonight on Facebook (Vote for change in Ludhiana-Vote for Phoolka) and www.phoolkaforludhiana.com together with a campaign on the social media called JUSTICE FOR GAGANPREET to garner public support for the family.
Gaganpreet was beaten to death after R.D. Sharma, Deputy Mayor threatened the family with dire consequences if he doesn’t leave his daughter.
Jaspreet Kaur, Gagans sister stated “We are facing threats that they will kill my father if we do anything. I will get justice for my brother no matter what. Our family will commit mass suicide if this doesn’t happen and R.D. Sharma, the Punjab Govt. and the Punjab Police will be responsible for it.”
People raised slogans against the Gunda Raj of Punjab government and particularly the  police department. Mr. Phoolka while sharing the grief of the family said, “there can be nothing worse than losing a child in this brutal manner. The accused must be punished appropriately. We support the family in their demand that the Deputy Mayor be suspended and an FIR be immediately registered. We are with them in this fight for justice for their son. The government is waiting on public patience to erupt like a volcano. We will stand by this family against all odds.”
Sharing his emotions and rage before media, Gaganpreet Nat’s father Lakhwinder Singh said, “Since we lost our son, we have knocked every single door to file our case but all in vain. Mr. Phoolka is the first person who has bothered to come to us to share our grief. He is truly sincere and the only hope for this city. I will be with him till the end and even after that.”

The Party-less Manifesto

 Sat, Mar 22, 2014 at 5:08 PM
Divine Character                                                      *C.L. Gulati, 
 Whenever the General Elections are announced, the political parties swing into action on making alignments and equations for winning the elections and gaining power. While blaming each other, every party paints a rosy picture for the public at large. Feeling pulse of the people, the parties promise to add to their purse by way of multiple perks.
The major political parties usually bring out Manifestos in order to gain popularity and to attract more votes. They announce their respective policies and programmes in the event of their coming to power and getting a chance to govern. This way, each party highlights certain issues and in its political wisdom tries to offer the best possible solution for it. In fine, the end statement of all the Manifestos would mean purity, peace and prosperity or in other words, health, wealth and happiness which can be termed as the Charter of Demands of the People.
Now, concentrating our attention on this statement, we find that health, wealth and happiness are inseparable. They all go together and cannot be enjoyed in the true sense if only some have and others do not have them. If there is a disease, poverty or unrest in any part of the country, we can not have complete peace. These have to be in abundance for all the people to experience the joy of life.
The rosy picture shown by the political parties would only be a fleeting phenomenon, if divine virtues are not ingrained in human character. Therefore, either it must be a divine sovereignty and everyone an embodiment of divine virtues or it would only be a moth-eaten hollow society devoid of any real substance. But we find that no party comes out with any such Manifesto which talks of man turning divine or the society a divine sovereignty. Little does any party realize that all its promises to the electorate would remain unfulfilled if the citizens of the country are not persons of divine character.
The most important and urgent problem facing the Brave Society today is the crisis of character. Materialistic values and outlook have weakened the fabric of society to the point where selfishness has become endemic in all walks of life. The higher human values that spring from the awareness of the spiritual basis of our being must be re-awakened, if the crisis is to be resolved. The spiritual and moral development is essentially required in order to bring about a non-violent spiritual renaissance.
So, the era which the political parties promise to usher in would remain a dream only as long as nature of the people is not given divine touch. This is the task which they can not perform because they do not have that magic wand of Divine Knowledge which transforms human nature into divine one. They do not have such know-how or expertise which would help to accomplish this superhuman task. God alone can do this. He, through his Prophet, places before mankind the party-less Manifesto of complete purity, peace and prosperity, as also the divine sovereignty, irrespective of their race, religion, caste and culture. By revealing Fatherhood of God, the prophet establishes spontaneous brotherhood of mankind This Divine Knowledge provides divinity to human character- which leads to harmony in the house, order in the society and eventual peace in the world.
The religion is a vehicle of spiritual enlightenment, moral consciousness and cultural values which are best suited to address the problems of life in all forms on our beautiful planet earth. It is for this reason that in the past, the kings and emperors used to have Raj Gurus to give religious touch to their politics. But now, when the religion has lost its gravity and has been totally eclipsed by politics, self-transformation holds the key to social transformation and it is up to each one of us to make an informed choice in favour of higher human values needed for a better society at large.
Self-transformation is decidedly a panacea for all social evils and holds a promise for global peace and progress. But its achievement is not that simple as it looks to be. Explaining the intrigue, Nirankari Baba ji who stands for human integration through spiritual awakening explains that every human being is an amalgam of material body and the soul-guided mind residing therein. The natural phenmenon is that man should link his soul with God and body with the materialistic world for its maintenance. But there is a patent short-circuiting in that the man has linked his mind with mundane world and body with certain rites, rituals and outer ceremonies in the name of God. Man thinks his physical body to be the be-all and end-all of his life. He spends more time looking in the mirror than looking in his mind to strike a balance for an ideal life. With this short-circuiting, men are running berserk like excited molecules of gas.
Every human being comprises of five material elements i.e. the earth, water, fire, air, sound plus the soul. The first five elements form the body while the sixth represents the individual unit of consciousness. Whenever there is a deficiency of any of these five elements in the body, some sort of disease or disturbance takes place. However, the deficiency of one element cannot be made good by any other. For example, the necessity of water cannot be met with by earth, fire, air or sound. Exactly on the same pattern no material element can replenish or substitute the sixth i.e. the soul or the individual unit of consciousness.
The human body fulfils its material needs from their counterpart mainstreams of earth, water, air, fire and sound abundantly available outside it. Likewise, all pervading God, the mainstream of individual unit of consciousness (soul) exists outside the human body also. In the absence of establishing relationship between the individual unit of consciousness (soul) with the mainstream of consciousness (God), those who materially lack nothing in life, feel disturbed and, at times, find themselves face to face with situations, when they feel that they have lost everything. Physical death of a person is painful, but more painful than that is the situation when the man lives with his soul lying deadly neglected within. For an ideal life, self-transformation is another name for self-realization based on reunion of soul with God. When God dwells in our mind, we are protected from evil ways and that marks the beginning of much needed social-transformation. Saint philosophers Augustine of Hippo writers, "Restless are our souls until they rest in Thee my God."
An enlightened person perceives God in all and all in God. He believes that all his assets, material and mental, belong to God and he, as a trustee, is ordained to use them for the common good of the whole human race. This spells a living above narrow prejudices and dogmas of caste, colour and creed. Thereby, one becomes respectful towards other's mode of dress, diet and culture and leads a purposeful self-reliant family life and maintains order in the society."
This spiritual attainment is a perennial bliss which brings saint Kabir living in a hutment earning a Takka (two paise) a day by weaving and Raja Janaka living in palaces, on the same ecstatic wave length despite their being poles apart socially and economically. There is no line of demarcation separating the rich from the poor. Spiritually speaking Haves are those who are spiritually awakened and Have-nots are those who are bereft of Divine-knowledge. which is the only key to purity, peace and prosperity. There is Biblical warning, "What shall avialeth a man if he gains the whole world but loseth his own soul!" The Prophet brings security and equality through spirituality.
The unity of divine thought and action leads to the humanism of the first water and forms a unique base for the best administered Government. All the Manifestos of the political parties can not match the divine path shown and the divine character built by the party-less True Master. He represents the mainstream of spirituality carried on by saints and sages, down the ages, reiterating and translating into action the same bold message, "Man is a man, when he is human. He is human, when the entire mankind is his family. Mankind is his family, when the all pervading God is his home. God can be his home when he actually knows Him and blissfully identifies himself with Him by living upto the divine message of the Prophet.
It was exactly this religion in his mind, when William Burke claimed that the religion is the foundation of the society, the basis on which all true civil Governments rest, and from which power derives its authority, laws their efficiency and both their sanction. If it is once shaken by contempt, the whole fabric cannot be stable or lasting.

Population explosion, magnified power of technology and psychological attitudes becoming a way of living on earth – all these factors combined, we are behaving as if the planet is a business in liquidation. There is a collusion between our civilization and the earth. Leading scientists in the world are openly giving a call that we probably have short time left in which to make a dramatic change in the pattern that now represents business as usual. Yes, we can fulfil the task but we will first have to change attitudes and awareness and recognize it as a spiritual issue, a challenge that goes to the core of who we are as human beings. In such a situation, awareness is important warmth is important and spirituality has a game-changing role to play in reminding us of our humanity.

Phoolka’s Road Show Left Remarkable Footprints

Sat, Mar 22, 2014 at 4:09 PM
Rally received a warm welcome in all the areas
Ludhiana: 22nd March, 2014: (Rector Kathuria//Punjab Screen):
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) organized an impressive road show in Ludhiana being led by AAP’s Lok Sabha candidate, H.S. Phoolka. The Rally was a scooter and cycle rally that was conducted in two laps starting from Sarabha Nagar to BRS Nagar, Sunet, Rajguru Nagar, Ferozpur Road, Octroi post, New Agar Nagar, Barrewal, Jain Colony in lap one and went on to Vardhman Sabji Mandi, Tajpur Chowky, Jalandhar Road, Tibbi Colony, Bhola Colony in the second one. The road show which was the major attraction for the city inspired many of the party volunteers and youngsters and elders who showed their support on their bikes and scooters.

The rally received a warm welcome in all the areas and AAP’s revolution for change was immensely acknowledged by Ludhianvis. Addressing the press and media, Phoolka said, “Unlike other parties this road show has not been organized to show the party strength but we have came to the streets to awake the masses to get them along and stand for change and stand against corruption. It is extremely vital now that Punjabis stand united if ever they want a corruption free governance in the state and AAP is providing the people that option now.” 

He went on to say, “It is still in our hands to improve conditions, and should we want a better liveable Punjab, we have a chance of that now. Youth of Punjab are forced to go abroad by any means possible, because of breakdown of the administrative system and unemployment. The youth in Punjab have been ruined by endless supply of drugs and liquor in the state and similar is the physical and mental health of a common Punjabi.”

AAP’s main aam admi hoon and mainu chahida swaraj caps were a great attraction to varied citizens during this road show. People joined the rally in huge numbers and enjoyed sporting Aam caps and jhadus

AAP Strives to Bring Everlasting Independence to Indians: Says Phoolka
Ludhiana: 19 March 2014: (Rector Kathuria//Punjab Screen):
Senior Supreme Court Lawyer and Ludhiana’s AAP candidate for Lok Sabha, HS Phoolka went out for a citizen meet in Gill Constituency of Ludhiana today to connect and appeal the villages to support AAM ADMI PARTY. The visited villages included; Narangwal, Narangwal Khurd, Kila Raipur, Jartauli, Majri, Mehma Singh Wala, Chupki, and Jassowal.
Phoolka conducted public meetings in these villages to deeply understand their issues and areas of concern. The corrupt and useless operation of SAD-BJP in Punjab and the National Congress party were brought into light during the discussion sessions and the clear cut agenda of AAP’s Swaraj and formation of transparent governing was introduced as well.
Phoolka in his appeal to support AAP said, “We need to surmount the corrupt politicians of India and Punjab to build a better nation for our generations and it can only be achieved by public movement.”  “A normal citizen (aam admi) has been brought under slavery by the so called leaders of Punjab, because one would need to seek their help for any simple services undertaken in government offices. And AAP strives to change this useless governing system and bring everlasting independence to the nation.” Added Phoolka.
Phoolka received a warm welcome in these villages in huge numbers who understood the core of AAP and agreed for full support to shape the Indian nation. These meetings proved sure evidence of AAP as heart winning party not only in urban but in the rural areas as well. Many social NGOs took serious part in helping out these meetings today.

All workers led by Balraj Singh Sekhon
Ludhiana: 16 March 2014: (Rector Kathuria//Punjab Screen): 
Causing a big loss for the Congress party, hundreds of Congress leaders and workers led by Balraj Singh Sekhon, an old Congress leader and its former state secretary, today, joined Aam Admi Party (AAP) and vowed to support AAP candidate from Ludhiana Advocate Harvinder Singh Phoolka.
Balraj Sekhon said, “Corruption is a major concern of our country and countrymen severely suffer of this and want to get rid of it. Since Congress and other main stream parties are directly responsible for it, we should reject them and support AAP whose president Arvind Kejriwal triggered an unprecedented movement against mass level graft.”
“AAP is a new ray of hope for marginalized sections of the society. That is why, we have joined this party and we appeal to all to do so, if we want to save our country”, he said, adding that due to its anti-graft stand, Congress and BJP backed by Ambani and other corporates did not let Kejriwal remain in power.
Along with him, other senior Congress leaders namely Tejpal Prashar, former block president of the party, Jarnail Singh Cheema, Kimi Pradhan, Numberdar Gurmail Singh, Rooplal, Gujjar Singh also joined AAP besides hundreds of Congress workers.
While interacting with the new members of AAP, Phoolka said, “Where on one hand the Akali-BJP government are implementing “Gunda Raaj” in Punjab thereby frightening the people, the Congress on the other hand in the Center has adopted a pro-corporate and anti-people policies which pave the way for more corruption and reduced development for the people”.
