Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that we have observed that the Hindu General’s by and large are shy and in fright to take action against Islamic Pakistan. They always want others to do their job to please the Hindu state.
This is a very good article written by Maj Gen Ashok K. Mehta. However we wish to state that the American’s have taken various actions against Pakistan and even made a daring raid into Abbotabad to get Osmana bin Laden. They have also made drone flights into Pakistan to neutralise various Taliban and Haqqani guerrilla leaders which are wrecking the long awaited peace in Afghanistan. We also recollect that after the New York Towers in New York were brought down, the American’s suspected the hands of guerrillas based in Afghanistan and the tribal territories of Pakistan. The then American Assistant or Deputy Secretary of State said America would reduce Pakistan to the Stone Age period. All this has been told to the Islamic state. Yet it tolerates all this from the American state. Its tolerance is rather elastic.
We have no hard evidence of Pakistan harbouring the Taliban and Haqqani guerrillas but we know that the international picture in South Asia has changed since America was the sole military power. We learn that Russia is arming the Taliban just as the American’s were arming it when the Soviet Union had occupied Afghanistan. China is supporting Pakistan to the hilt. Under these circumstances will Pakistan blink with the American threats? Presently the American attention is turned on North Korea and the South China Sea. That is something the wise and prudent Hindu Generals must tell us plain hillbillies. But we Sikh’s want peace and no war. The Hindu state has not brought the perpetrators of the Sikh genocide before the law. Victims of the crime of genocide do not fight for their oppressors and perpetrators.
