Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that the Rohingya ethnic cleansing from Burma is a very serious international crime and against the principles of justice. The stand of THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) in the Supreme Court is not tenable that security issues are involved. It is clear that the Hindu state is engineering extraneous reasons for keeping the Rohingya refugees out of the Hindu state’s territory.
The fact is that the Rohingya’s are Muslim’s. The Hindu’s and Muslim’s have been daggers drawn ever since the Arab marauder Mohammad-bin-Qasim conquered Sindh and Multan in 712 AD. Since that period Hindu’s and Muslim’s have been implacable enemies.
British India in 1947, when the British gave up their Indian Empire was divided on communal grounds. Gandhi and Nehru the Hindu leaders carved out a Hindu majority state for the Hindus, that being India and Mohammad Ali Jinnah the Muslim leader got a Muslim majority Pakistan. The Sikh’s, the third party to the division of the British Empire got nothing and were left high and dry. They were ethnically cleansed from their Homeland, the Punjab that was partitioned in two, the western part going to Pakistan and the eastern bit becoming a part of Hindu India.
Since 1947 when the Hindu’s got their majority Hindu state, they have coveted this territory by slowly exterminating the minorities, they being the Sikh’s, Muslim’s, Christian’s and Dalit’s.
In the 1980’s running into the 1990’s the Sikh’s faced the crime of genocide with impunity by the Hindu state. The Muslim’s since 1947 have faced persecution and many pogroms, which continue to this day.
The Hindu state in its affidavit to the Supreme Court has said that it fears that the Rohingya’s are agents of Pakistan’s intelligence service the ISI and it is in cahoots with ISIS the extremist Islamic organization that wishes to set up a Caliphate. This is not true as Pakistan does not practise the extremist form of Islam which ISIS idolises.
To counter any form of opposition to the Hindu state, the fanatics in power have legislated draconian laws that even the Supreme Court has given acceptance, though they violate the basic structure of the constitution of Hindu India. This particular law is AFSPA (Armed Forces Special Powers Act) which gives powers to the armed forces to kill, maim, torture, kidnap, abduct, rape, keep in illegal custody any person that the security forces consider harbours intensions of freedom and liberty. This law is practised in Jammu & Kashmir against the Muslim’s with animal brutality and against the Christian Naga’s in the North-East. The Supreme Court has ruled that this law is not ultra-vires the constitution though article 21 of the constitution states that no person can be deprived of his life and liberty without the procedure laid down by law.
It can therefore be seen that the Hindu Indian state has brutal laws to deal with dissenting minorities whether they be Sikh’s, Muslim’s or Christian’s. The legislative, the executive and the judicial wing of the Hindu state are in total agreement in dealing with dissent. The press, the fourth estate acts in unison.
Today if we see the state’s infamous prison of Delhi the Tehar Jail, it is packed with dissenting Sikh’s who have been behind bars for the last thirty years and Kashmiri Muslim’s who come under the category of peaceful dissenters, are also fellow prisoners in this jail. This jail has won notoriety for executing Sikh and Muslim dissenters in recent times. Some of the executed Sikh’s are Bhai Satwant Singh and Bhai Kehar Singh and the Muslim victims of the Hindu state have been Maqbool Bhat and Afzal Guru.
Here in the monolithic Hindu fundamental state where the legislature, the executive, the judiciary and the press act in unison, we do not see any reason for the Hindu state to claim before the Supreme Court that allowing the Rohingya’s into India would be a security problem for the state.
To bring home the obstructionist and ruthless character of the Hindu state we inform the less knowledgeable that this state does not recognise or accept the following UN treaties, covenants and protocols:
UN Human Rights treaties, protocols and covenants:-
- 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
- 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.
- 1954 Convention relating to Status of Stateless Persons.
- 1960 Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples.
- 1965 International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
- 1966 Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
- 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees. It is because there are still 30,000 Sikh Stateless refugees in Kashmir since 1947.
- 1972 Treaty on the Limitation of Anti-Ballistic Missile System.
- 1972 Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. If this Convention had been followed, neither the Darbar Sahib, (the Golden Temple at Amritsar) nor Babri Masjid would have been reduced to rubble. Presently the Taj Mahal is in danger of being pulled down by the same fanatics who have destroyed the monuments mentioned above. 10. 1984 Convention against Torture and other Cruel Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
- 1984 Safeguard and guaranteeing protection of the Rights of those facing the death penalty.
- 1995 Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
- 1996 Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.
- 1997 Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of anti-Personnel Mines and their Destruction (the Ottawa Convention on the abolition of landmines).
- 2001 Rome Statute, by virtue of which the International Criminal Court has been set up at the Hague.
- 2010 The Convention on Cluster Munitions prohibits all use, stockpiling, production and transfer of Cluster Munitions.
The Hindu state today is a nuclear armed state with the fourth largest army, armed with draconian powers and formidable weapons. Only the very naive would believe that harmless fleeing Rohingya Muslim refugees would pose a danger to the security of the Hindu state. Its plea before the Supreme Court on grounds of keeping away homeless refugees on grounds of security is like killing a fly with a sledge hammer. We hope the Supreme Court will graduate to a status where it does not believe in such cock and bull stories.
