Punjab chief Minister, Amarinder Singh, sent a copy of Hitler’s autobiography ‘Mein Kampf’ to Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) Chief Sukhbir Singh Badal to enlighten him about the dangerous implications of Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

The book ‘Mein Kampf’ (meaning My Struggle) is an autobiographical account of Hitler's journey to developing his political ideology, his anti-semetism and future plans for Germany.

Amarinder Singh said that the Centre was trying to replicate “Hitler’s agenda” in India and that SAD leaders should read the book before giving “irrational reactions” on the CAA. He further said that the SAD leader's recent statement reflects their ignorance on the issue asked Badal to read the book to decide whether country comes first or “political expediency”.https://ssl.gstatic.com/ui/v1/icons/mail/images/cleardot.gif

Singh wrote a letter to Badal saying, "Supporting the bill in both houses of Parliament and in the Vidhan Sabha and opposing it on other platforms is unbecoming of a political leader".

In his letter Singh explained Hitler’s modus operandi which led to persecution of the intellectuals, and finally to the extermination of the Jews. "Read the book, as one always learns from history. The world has changed and our television and other media are powerful, and certainly different to that of Germany in the thirties under Joseph Goebbels. Nevertheless, the talk of camps and a national register to eliminate the Muslim and Jewish communities is ominous," Amarinder Singh further wrote.

In turn, Badal took a jibe at the CM and said he would soon be sending him a bundle of books written by prominent Sikh scholars detailing how the Congress party and its first family had "planned and engineered" attack on 'Harmandar Sahib' as well as the "mass killing" of Sikhs in Delhi and other parts of the country. "This gift of books could also force you to have a change of mind and forsake servility towards the Gandhi family and make you more sensitive towards the suffering of your own community," added Badal.
