Hindus-India-RSS-Modi-Gujaratis-Ambani/Adani, that's the direction of hate that's all. Not every sikh but atleast a vocal section of the sikh society for whatever the reason harbors a deep distrust and hatred for the Hindus and it manifests into hatred for India/RSS/Modi/Gujaratis/Ambani,Adani,Patanjali etc.
Not really and your understanding is a bit simplistic. Why exactly protests target Ambani/Adani/Patanjli:
A (congress) politician says the following:
My opinion is that I believe it is true. These agro companies were registered in the recent past and probably with insider knowledge of changes that were to happen in this sector. Farm leaders have pointed out to a NITI aayog meeting between farm leaders, central government and private firms sometime in 2017. The agenda was on how to increase investment in agriculture. As per farm leadership, the private industry mentioned that they would invest if given the right business climate ( i.e. no say to farm unions on how investment will be done ). The meeting ended in 2017 after the farm leaders protested on being left out in providing policy inputs. The next this topic was heard about when ordinances were passed sometime in June this year.
So yes there was background work done by private industry and the government over the last two years and as a result of this insider information agro firms were registered to take the first mover advantage. As much as we dislike it, inside information, back hand dealing are acceptable business practices and firms with the best flow of information tend to be more competitive and successful. Unfortunately in this case it has slightly back fired ( though we do not know the final outcome yet ) leading to targeting of companies hoping to take the first mover advantage.
