Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:- Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that I like millions of Sikhs are from now what is Pakistan. In 1947 when India was under British rule and independence was imminent, the then British Prime Minister Attlee Clement Attlee in connivance and conspiracy along with the Viceroy of British India Mountbatten, Hindu leaders Gandhi and Nehru and Muslim leaders of the Muslim League Mohammad Ali Jinnah divided their British colony India on communal grounds, creating Pakistan for the Muslims and India for the Hindus.
The third party to the partition of British India were the Sikhs, who according to the Anglo-Sikh treaty of 1849, the British had decreed that when their Maharaja Dalip Singh became a major the sovereignty of the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire) would be restored. That meant that the sovereignty of the Sikh Empire had not been abrogated as Muslim rule (Mugal Empire) in India was annulled in 1857. The Sikh sovereignty was therefore only suspended. But the British betrayed the treaty obligations of the Anglo-Sikh treaty of 1849 and did not restore the sovereignty of the Sikh Empire. Since the Sikh Empire was not annulled but merely suspended, it meant that when the British gave up their British Indian Empire in 1947 they by 1849 treaty obligations should have restored the Sikh’s sovereignty and given them a separate state, from which they resiled.
The reason given by the Hindus, Muslims and the British for not giving the Sikhs a separate Sikh state was that the Sikhs did not have a majority anywhere in the undivided Punjab state. But this stand is hollow and can be swallowed only by the gullible and the ignorant. This is so because a year later after 1947 the British in 1948 created the Jewish state of Israel in Palestine which was totally an Arab majority state and till today the problem of creating a Jewish state in an Arab majority Palestine is creating problems by the day and sometimes the bitterness becomes so strong that it leads to a war and in the future it may lead to a greater war embroiling the bigger powers.
President Donald Trump of America is on the path of breaking the peace America and the super power’s plus Germany made with Iran. This is being done to appease Israel that can’t see or tolerate the Muslims in the Middle East and the base and the crux of the problem is that Israel has been created on a Muslim majority territory. Thus the wise guys should stop teaching the Sikhs that states can only be formed in a territory where a nationality has a majority. If the Jew’s can exist in Israel the Sikhs too would have existed with a separate state of their own. After all the Durand Line, the Radcliffe Line, the division of Kashmir between Pakistan and India and Ladakh where the Hindu state surrendered 39,000 sq kms to China in 1962 are all territories of the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire).
Now getting back to the news report mentioned above that the Indians in Great Britain are more competent than the Pakistanis we would only say that had the British, Hindus led by Gandhi and Nehru, Muslims led by Jinnah not ethnically cleansed the Sikhs from what became Pakistan from their Homeland the Punjab, we then the people of undivided Punjab would have been as competent as the Indians as stated. But these are the if’s of history and we must march on, struggle and fight and not expect manna to fall from heaven or keep chewing cud nonchalantly like cows, for our national Sikh right of having an independent and sovereign Khalistan which would be wedge or a buffer between Islamic Pakistan, Communist China and THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State). That is the only solution to peace in South Asia as all the states mentioned above are nuclear armed states and are perpetually at one another’s throat’s, which can trigger a nuclear war leading to the complete and total annihilation of the Sikh and Punjabi race.
