Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that Haryana is a majority Hindu state. Last time there was an agitation in this state, the state government called in the army to stop the arson, rapes, murders, pillage and destruction of property. The army preferred to remain a silent spectator of all the mayhem and gory crimes that were perpetrated.
It is an experience of our party that the army does not perform its duty in majority populated Hindu states as the character of the military is communal. However, when deployed against the Sikh’s and Muslim’s, the army goes all out to inflict the maximum causalities on human lives and damage on property.
For instance in Operation Bluestar of 1984 against the Sikh’s the army massacred 26,000 innocent women, children and the elderly. Robbed the Sikh Reference Library and the Toshakhana (Treasury) of Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple) at Amritsar, the holiest Sikh shrine.
Later that year 1984, the Sikh populace of Delhi and Northern India was subjected to the deadliest crime of genocide by the Congress party Union government of Rajiv Gandhi. The armed forces coyly remained in their barracks and cantonments without stirring.
Similarly in 2002 under the government of then Chief Minister Narinder Modi in Gujarat over 2000 innocent Muslim’s were massacred by the BJP-RSS goons and scallywags but the army did not step out from its barracks and cantonments to save the lives of a minority.
We do not know what would calling in of the 150 Central companies in Haryana do this time around?
