Punjabi actor Deep Sidhu is getting a lot of attention nowadays. Especially after the red fort violence on 26 January, 72nd Republic day of India. Farmer leaders have alleged that Deep Sidhu instigated protesters and led them to the Red Fort and hoisted flags in the 17th-century monument.
This news comes as a conspiracy behind creating a disorder among the protesting farmers on a very important day. Deep Sidhu came into the limelight after his video, explaining the agitation of farmers and rough spots in the farms’ bill went viral. Last month, the NIA had registered a case against Sikhs for Justice and Deep Sidhu and his brother Mandeep Singh were also on the receivers list of this notice.
On 26 January, when farmers’ leaders accused Deep Sidhu of instigating violence and provoking the rally, Sidhu claimed to be innocent and said that he did not remove the national flag and replaced it with ‘Nishan Sahib’.

A video of Deep Sidhu running away from the farmers when asked about the violence is also getting viral.
PROFANITY ALERT: Watch farmers confronting BJP stooge Deep Sidhu. He was the one who created violence at Red Fort & tried to laid seige. He panics and runs away as farmers question his motive.
Why he hasn’t been arrested? Why he was allowed to escape after he created violence? pic.twitter.com/HfDPKmdQtu

After the allegations against Deep Sidhu started getting strong support, Deep Sidhu posted a video on Facebook on Tuesday evening claiming that it was not a planned move and the sequence of events is something that has instigated the violence.
Posted by Deep Sidhu on Tuesday, January 26, 2021
“To symbolically register our protest against the new farm legislation, we put up ‘Nishan Sahib’ and a farmer flag and also raised the slogan of Kisan Mazdoor Ekta,” news agency PTI quoted Sidhu as saying.
“We held a peaceful protest without destroying anything or causing any damage to the public property. “We exercised our democratic right peacefully,” he claimed, adding, “If we think one person or a personality could do such a big mobilisation of people, then it will be wrong.”
Various political leaders took to social media to alleged that Deep Sidhu was associated with the ruling party BJP and he was the man behind the Red Fort violence.
आज लाल क़िले पर जो हुआ उसे देख कर मन बहुत दुखी हुआ है, मैं पहले भी, 6 December को ,Twitter के माध्यम से यह साफ कर चुका हूँ कि मेरा या मेरे परिवार का दीप सिद्धू के साथ कोई संबंध नही है।

Swaraj Abhiyan leader Yogendra Yadav, who is among the leaders supporting the protest against the farm laws, said Sidhu had been disassociated “from our protest right from the beginning”. “When he participated in a protest at Shambu border and seeing their activities, the farmer unions had decided to keep them away from our movement,” he said.
After Deep Sidhu ran away from Lal Qila untouched by police, leaving thousands stranded there, Sikh elders pacified the protestors & asked them to retreat.
They are seen repeatedly saying, ‘this will hurt us, please stop’.

These actions and words by the Punjabi actor and singer Deep Sidhu has proven that he has been dishonest to the ‘Annadatas’ who were willing to conduct a peacefull protest but were influenced by people like ‘Deep Sidhu’.

Lame attempt by the Congress and assorted self appointed leaders of the violent protests in Delhi, to pass off Deep Sidhu, the man seen breaching the sanctity of Red Fort, as being associated with the BJP, when he has himself denied it in the past!
He is their asset gone rouge. pic.twitter.com/R121le0qzb

Deep Sidhu is not a Sikh, he is a worker of the BJP. There is a picture of him with the PM. This is a movement of farmers & will remain so. Some people will have to leave this place immediately- those who broke barricading will never be a part of the movement: Rakesh Tikait, BKU pic.twitter.com/7cXlKZ6gNe

Turns out, BJP’s Deep Sidhu & his followers were the ones who tried to siege Red Fort & hoisted Nishan Sahib.
This is BJP’s sinister plan. I had sounded alert on him 2 months ago (check tweet below)
