The Bharat Bandh called by the Dalit Organizations has taken the world of media by storm. The protest came as a result of the Supreme Court’s order that bans automatic arrests and registration of criminal cases against the accused in the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, a legislation meant to protect the marginalised communities from abuse and discrimination.
From people being killed to setting vehicles ablaze, from blocking trains to several injured, the ongoing riots have already caused extreme brutality. While the civilians continue to get affected, there was one Sikh man who stepped in and put the protesters in their place.
Meet Nihang Sikh who took on the Dalits blocking the road at the Ambala Highway singlehandedly, and refused to return!
On being stopped by the protesters, Singh came out of the car and refused to go back. He shouted at the top of his voice as he made a statement and challenged them to do whatever they want!
However, things turned ugly when a man from the crowd abused the angry Sikh who was with his wife. The nasty comment made him so angry that he chased the man with a sword!

Reportedly, Nihang Sikh is an ex-army officer and it was definitely a bad decision to mess with him.
However, the apex court defended their order by saying that they do not want the innocent to be punished. According to the body, it is to prevent the innocents from arbitrary arrests and not an action to Dalit rights! As a result, while demanding the restoration of law, other laws were broken.
