Borrowed feathers never shine. Tejas has an imported engine and is not a stealth jet fighter. Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune Dated 14th January, 2021
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that our Party does not understand what affect these Tejas jets will have on the Hindu India’s adversaries. The reason for dismay is that these jets have American engines. The radars are also from a fraternal theocratic state. What will happen to the spares for this jet in case the country that supplies these vital machines stops exports for policies of the Hindu state which are not congenial to the foreign state?
It is alarming that after 74 years that the British handed over power of their Indian Empire to the Hindu’s, the defence industry is still in the doldrums. Israel and Communist China gained their respective states in 1948 and today they are producing the state of the art arms. European, Russian and Japanese defence industries were totally ruined by World War II. These Countries have too have come out of the disasters of the war and are producing first class weaponry.
The question is that why the Hindu state has lost the momentum in defence production. One is that the Hindu’s have never had a sovereign state in history save for the mythical and legendry state of Ayodhya. The second reason is that the Hindu’s are caste ridden and they don’t have a martial tradition.
Coming back to the proud projection of producing the Tejas in the Hindu press, we would feel ashamed that while this cannibalized jet has been produced, it is still not a stealth jet. Communist China has Sukhoi 35MKI and J-20 jets, which are superior to the Russian Sukhoi 30MKI jets. They are stealth jets whereas Sukhoi 30MKI jets are not. Communist China is going in to acquire the latest jets Su – 57 from Russia, whereas the Hindu state which has a military alliance with the US has not received the latest American stealth jets F – 20 and F – 35.
If the Hindu state’s Generals say that they are going to fight a two front war, we must be told that what will they fight such a war when 67 percent of their armaments are obsolete and fit for the junk yard. Islamic Pakistan as we know has acquired the J -20 stealth jets from Communist China.
In the field of the army of the Hindu state it has old rickety tanks and artillery pieces. When will these be replenished? Historically the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire 1799-1849) was manufacturing its own artillery guns, which out classed the same guns manufactured in Europe. Some of these artillery pieces were taken to Britain after the annexation of the Lahore Darbar and are on display at various cities in UK.
The other factor why the Hindu Indian state is behind defence production is that the Politicos, Bureaucrats and Military officers who are responsible for production of defence pieces are corrupt to the core. Their lust for money from kickbacks in import deals is greater than their patriotism, which has lately sprung up after 1947 when they got their present sovereign state – THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State).
Our Party is aware of the US Pentagon leak papers of 2018 about the US making the Hindu state a military power to counter balance the growing Communist China’s armed strength. If the Americans expect Hindu India which is divided into racial, communal and sectarian bits and parts they must read their World War II history and explain whether it was fruitful for Nazi Germany to ally with Mussolini’s Italy, whose regiments raised their hands in surrender before the first shell or bullet was fired by the Allies. They can expect the same standard of battle performance and expertise from Hindu India’s armed forces.
The armed forces have done more fighting against their own people and committed war crimes against the Sikh’s, Naga’s, Mizo’s, Adivasis or Tribal’s of Central India in the states Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Bihar, Orissa and Punjab, than fighting and protecting their own borders.
Presently the armed forces are deployed against the Kashmiri peoples of Kashmir and commit heinous crimes against them under the protection of the inhuman law – AFSPA (Armed forces special powers) under which the armed forces have the powers to commit abominable crimes – kill, maim, torture, molest, rape, kidnap, abduct and detain a Kashmiri indefinitely, all with impunity. This law violates Article 21 of the Constitution but the Supreme Court will not declare it ultra vires because the minorities are the victims and not the majoritarians.
In 1962, the Hindu Indian state meekly surrendered 39,000 Sq. Kms. of its territory in Ladakh to Communist China. Then the Americans did render military help to the Hindu state. But since then the Hindu state has not been able to retrieve a single kilometer of the surrendered area and since April 2020 it has given away more of its territory in Ladakh to Communist China’s PLA.
The Hindu’s have no policy of revanchism and therefore can be of no use to the USA in any confrontation with an adversary.
The incoming Biden Administration of the USA must insist that the Hindu Indian state improves its human rights record vis a vis its minorities, religious, ethnic, casteist and practices absolute religious freedom, before venturing into any alliance – Political or Military.
Facta non Verba.
