The Tribune 10th December 2017
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that this a very good and impartial review by Mr. Sandeep Dikshit. This is very strange and perplexing since Islamic Pakistan is the chief whipping boy of The Tribune and the Hindu nation’s state craft. The Foreign office in Delhi is full of these jingoistic Hindu officials who at the slightest pretext are eager to spoil our (Sikh’s) relations with Islamic Pakistan.
If the writer says the so called Father of his nation M K Gandhi had been given the time he would have created a separate homeland for the Pathan’s. But on the other hand these patriotic Hindu leaders Gandhi, Nehru and Patel had the Radcliffe Line drawn bifurcating the Sikh Homeland in half, whereby half of the Sikh religion, language, culture, art, school of painting, social structure went to Pakistan and there after the Hindu state had the Radcliffe Line sealed by a tall barbed wire fencing, patrolled day & night by the para-military BSF and the Army so that the Sikh’s could never visit their Homeland.
Now we ask the author Mr. Dogra that if Gandhi, Nehru and Patel could have eradicated the Durand Line for the Pathan’s why did they have the Radcliffe Line drawn to spite the Sikh’s?
Though we congratulate Mr. Dikshit for his impartial review we ask him and the author Mr. Dogra why do Hindu writers feel shy to write that the Durand Line which they criticise was not really drawn by Sir Henry Mortimer Durand but the British Indian regime of the time ordered him (Durand) to demarcate the border between British India and Afghanistan on the conquests and boundaries made by the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire in 1709 to 1849).
So therefore the Durand Line is not the line drawn by British India but by the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire in 1709 to 1849). We do hope that the Hindu states Foreign Office in Delhi will understand the history of the Punjab clearly and not attribute everything to their saintly Father of the Nation Gandhi.
We wish to state and inform the Foreign Office that the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire in 1709 to 1849) annexed the entire province of Kashmir from Afghanistan in 1819. However, after 1947 the new Islamic state of Pakistan and Hindu state of India could not keep the entire Kashmir province as a whole but it is now half in the hands of Islamic Pakistan and the other half with Hindu India.
THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) consistently criticises OBOR which runs through Pakistan held Kashmir and states that territory belongs to the Hindu state. This is not so as it falls in the Sikh annexed territories which due to a great fraud by Hindu leaders Gandhi, Nehru and Patel, Muslim leader Mohammad Ali Jinnah in connivance with the British Attlee Labour government deprived the Sikh’s of their legitimate right of having a separate sovereign Sikh state of their own. Therefore the Hindu state cannot claim sovereignty over Islamic Pakistan held Kashmir till this great dispute is settled in favour of the Sikh nation.
