“Shameful and pitiful. Sangrur MP, Simranjeet Singh Mann, calling revolutionary freedom fighter Bhagat Singh a ‘terrorist’ is disgraceful and disrespectful. Punjabis are connected to the ideology of Bhagat Singh and we strongly condemn this irresponsible comment,” the AAP tweeted.

AAP MP Raghav Chadha said it’s “shameful that some call him a terrorist”. “Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh is a hero, a patriot, a revolutionary and a true son of the soil. Inquilab Zindabad,” Chadha tweeted.

Former deputy CM Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa also condemned the comment by the Akali (Amritsar) MP.

“The young man (Bhagat Singh) who fought and sacrificed for the freedom of the country is today being called a terrorist. Simranjit Mann ji Learn to differentiate between those who give their lives for the country and those who give their lives against the country,” Randhawa tweeted.

Mann has yet to follow up on his statement whereby he said that “Bhagat Singh had killed a young, English naval officer, he had killed an Amritdhari Sikh constable, Channan Singh.

He hurled a bomb at the National Assembly at the time. Now you tell me whether Bhagat Singh was a terrorist or not.”
