In the video surfaced on social media, the Khalistani leader can be heard saying ‘Bhagat Singh was a traitor. He proved Sikh leaders as terrorists. He proved to the whole Sikh community as terrorist by licking the shoes of Brahmins. He is not ‘Shaheed-e-Azam,’ he is just a traitor. Shaheed-e-Azam’s are those who sacrificed their lives for the Khalsa.’
