According to the author, which is our party’s view, the Hindu Indian state, has under Premier Nerndra Modi lost Depsang and Pangong Tso in Ladakh to Communist China for all times to come.– Simranjit Singh Mānn

Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that Sikh’s should read this article. Briefly if Jawaharlal Nehru surrendered 39,000 Sq. Kms. of Ladakh Territory in 1962, the author of this article Mr. Adhir Rajan Chowdhury correctly states that Premier Nerandra Modi has surrendered the territory of Depsang and Pongong Tso in Ladakh to Communist China.
Communist China has no intention of moving out of these territories.
It is a great misfortune for us Sikh’s as it was the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire 1799 – 1849) that annexed Ladakh in 1834 and Kashmir in 1819 before which it was a province of Afghanistan. All great powers on earth, whether it be the British, the Soviets and now presently the Americans have tried to overwhelm and force their hegemony on Afghanistan but we are proud to state that it was only the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire 1799 – 1849) that created any semblance of influence on Afghanistan.
Though, the Sikh Empire had brought Kashmir and Ladakh within its Empire and ruled these territories judicially, the Hindu Indian state that succeeded British Indian Empire has not been able to keep both Kashmir and Ladakh in one piece.
