We will not let this torch be extinguished: Com Yousuf Tarigami

: 1st January 2023: (Kartika Singh//Comrade Screen Desk)::

Most of the media organizations in Punjab generally do not celebrate their anniversaries openly in such a way that common people can also participate. The lack of such events often hurts. Even if celebrated, they remain within the limits of the offices of the media organizations concerned, the news of which is published in the relevant newspaper the next day.

In such an atmosphere, the 27th birth anniversary of 'Desh Sevak' was celebrated in a very grand manner in which leaders of common workers, laborers and farmers arrived from far and wide. Kartar Singh, an elderly man, hailed from a village in Ludhiana and was over 75 years of age. They all resolved to maintain a secular, democratic and pro-people stand and reiterated their resolve to continue their efforts to make Com. Harkishan Singh Surjit's dreams come true. Com Sukhwinder Singh Sekhon, State Secretary of CPI(M) and Managing Director of Dainik Desh Sevak reminisced about the role played by Desh Sevak.

Baba Sohan Singh Bhakna Bhawan of local Sector 29-D was bustling throughout the day. Hot tea and pakodas were being distributed as unbreakable langar. Amidst the bitter cold, people full of warm feelings had reached from far and wide. In this way the 27th anniversary of Desh Sevak was celebrated in a grand manner. The ceremony, of course, started an hour late, but after it began, it went on without a hitch. Every speaker who spoke from the stage was priceless. His poison word was full of new information. In this way every moment was made memorable. To be deprived of listening to this program even for a moment was a loss deal. The commemoration ceremony was presided over by Com.

A large number of people had arrived eagerly to attend it. These were people of all ages. People fully connected with the programs of the party. They don't have much understanding of media, but they certainly knew how important the media which takes the side of the public has become today. 

Comrade Muhammad Yusuf Tarigami, a member of the Central Committee of the CPI(M) and several times MLA from Jammu and Kashmir, was also specially present in this programme. People were eager to hear him. Com Sukhwinder Singh Sekhon, MD of 'Desh Sevak' and State Secretary of CPI(M), Com Ram Singh Noorpuri, State Secretariat Member, Com Gurnek Singh Bajal, Com Sucha Singh Ajnala, Com Sukhpreet Singh Johal, Com Abdul Sattar, Chetan Sharma, Local Editor cum General Manager of Desh Sevak, Editor Ripudaman Rippi and Printer and Publisher of Desh Sevak Ranjit Singh participated in this program. There was hardly any corner of Punjab from where one or two representatives of the people associated with the Daily Desh Sewak have not reached. 

On this occasion, it was also talked about taking the mission of the country's servant further. Meanwhile, addressing a large gathering, Com Youssef Tarigami said that they have received a New Year's gift today as they are sitting among themselves and talking from their hearts. He said that the desire to restart 'Desh Sevak' which was closed by the British Government in 1920s remained constant in the mind of Com. 

In this way, comrade Surjeet again made this auspicious occasion of the return of the "Desh Sewak" a reality again. In this way, the struggle-filled history of the Daily Desh Sewak has once again come to the fore, due to which many people are still unaware. 

There was also talk of difficulties coming in the way of free and pro-people media. Com Yusuf Tarigami said that this moment will not be allowed to fade under any circumstances. He said that today journalism in true sense is a very difficult task. The editor has to think before taking up the pen, because if the order is violated then ED, CBI or any other agency can take action against that editor. He said that 'Desh Sevak' has faced many challenges so far and will have to face them in future too, which we are fully prepared to face. 

Calendar and diary of 'Desh Sevak' was also released on the occasion of this memorable event.  Com Yousuf Tarigami said that 'Desh Sevak' has never shied away from its responsibility and it is and will remain accountable to its readers. He said that this newspaper has become the mouthpiece of the downtrodden and has raised their issues prominently.

Com. Yusuf Tarigami said that today, when the conditions of the country have been turned in the other direction by the rulers, the responsibility of the 'Desh Sevak' to raise voice against the populist policies of the rulers increases even more. He also told many deep things in detail about the importance of media dedicated to the public. He said that today constitutional institutions are under threat because the rulers are misusing them for their personal interests. Regarding the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, he said that the government should tell whether it is against our constitution. No clause, or is it a clause of a foreign constitution? He said that when the Constitution of India was written, this section was also included in it. He said that where there are union territories, there is a demand to make them states. On the contrary, the statehood of Jammu and Kashmir has been abolished and it has been bifurcated into a Union Territory. He said that on August 5, 2019, the Center decided to abrogate Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. After, what happened there is clear to the people. Restrictions have been imposed on people's speaking, listening, wearing clothes, eating, drinking and walking. He said that the Center should tell whether these people are not citizens of India. They were treated like second class citizens.

Com. Yusuf Tarigami said that the people of Jammu and Kashmir are democracy loving people, they did not leave the path of mutual brotherhood at the time of partition in 1947 and before that also played their part in the struggle for the freedom of the country. He said that special restrictions are being imposed by the Center on Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir, both of which are border states. He said that the people of these two states are not beggars, they want to be treated like citizens. They want their rights. He said that 50 kilometer area in Punjab has been handed over to BSF, from where the intention of the rulers can be seen. Talking about Punjab, he said that the people of Punjab contributed a lot in the freedom struggle, but maintained brotherhood even during the times of terrorism and played a major role in the 'Kisan Movement' fought on the borders of Delhi. He said that whether the farmer is from Jammu-Kashmir or Punjab, he will be engaged in farming and will protect it and will also decide the price of the crops himself. Com. Yusuf Tarigami said that BJP should now understand that the people of the country are not going to follow its instructions for long.

In the end, he congratulated the entire management of 'Desh Sevak' on its 27th anniversary and also assured his support. Com Sukhwinder Sekhon, Managing Director of Rozana Desh Sevak and State Secretary of the party, also mentioned many such cases from the stage in which Desh Sevak played the role of alert and responsible media. There were also talks of those special news which only the country's servant had the courage to publish. Only Desh Sevak was the first to make sensational revelations which were completely true. Only the patriot showed the courage to publish them.

Recalling the news of a famous dera, Com. Sekhon said that in 2002, when an anonymous letter containing this news was published, the news of that day was being sold for Rs. 200 to Rs. 500 per newspaper in black. Desh Sevak became popular among the people due to his impartiality and courage. Com Sekhon said that plans are being made to publish Desh Sevak in three languages ​​soon so that this newspaper emerges as a strong media of North India.

Addressing this special gathering Com.Sekhon said that it was the mission of Com.Harkishan Singh Surjit that there should be a newspaper which opposes communal divisions and orthodoxy. Under this mission, he restarted 'Desh Sevak' 27 years ago. He said that during this time there were great difficulties and many challenges were faced, but the 'Desh Sevak' continued on his path fearlessly. He reminded that 'Desh Sevak' prominently published many news, which were related to the society.

He said that on September 25, 2002, Desh Sewak had published an anonymous letter written by a girl victim of sexual exploitation by an alleged sadhvi of Sirsa, taking suo moto cognizance of which the High Court had ordered a CBI inquiry into the matter. The disclosure of this case created a stir all over the world. Case. Desh Sevak had brought to the fore the reality of the so-called religious places.

He said that when the CBI court in Panchkula sentenced this so-called Sadhu on August 25, 2017, the English Tribune in its news published on August 26, 2017 had openly mentioned the role of 'Desh Sevak' and so-called Sadhu Babas. Significantly, the scandal against this Sadh was also published in 'Desh Sevak'. It was published anonymously by the country servant himself on the initiative.

Addressing this program of Desh Sevak anniversary, local editor cum general manager of 'Desh Sevak' Chetan Sharma said that the new management had taken over the management of the organization five years back. During this, many ups and downs were seen. He said that by guarding the thinking of Com.

He said that it was Comrade Surjit's dream that 'Desh Sevak' should be published in other languages ​​as well, so in 2020 the organization started a Punjabi and English website. He said that one crore 97 lakh viewers are connected to it in two and a half years. He said that everyone knows the condition of media in today's era, but 'Desh Sevak' did not leave the path of fair journalism. He said that soon 'Desh Sevak' is going to start in another language as well.

Speaking on the daily 'Desh Sevak' editor Ripudaman Rippi said that 'Desh Sevak' has always protected democratic and secular values ​​and has consistently adopted a pro-people approach. He said that today the general public of the country is living under the burden of inflation and unemployment and poisonous communalism is being spread on the basis of religion by the rulers at the social level, due to which there is division among the people. In such a delicate environment, the responsibility of newspapers like "Desh Sevak" increases a lot.

Now it is expected that next year the 28th anniversary will be celebrated on an even bigger scale. Due to the large number of Godi media, the role of media dedicated to the public increases even more.
