The Tribune 11th June 2017
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that Mr. NN Vohra the Governor of Jammu & Kashmir is also a trustee of The Tribune, a prominent newspaper of our region. The Tribune however has always been partial towards the Hindu state and Hindutva. Mr. Vohra is a protagonist of the right wing Hindu state. As a result The Tribune since its inception in Lahore has had a bitter and unpleasant relationship towards the Sikh’s and the Muslim’s. Its founders Sardar Dayal Singh Majithia was converted to an extremist form of Hinduism known as Arya Samaj though S. Majithia came from an aristocratic Sikh family. In the service of this extremist form of Hinduism The Tribune has always been referring to the Sikh’s as terrorists, extremists, radicals and hardliners. Mr. Vohra as Governor of Jammu & Kashmir besides his secular duties also heads the Hindu religious trusts and supervises the annual Hindu pilgrimage to the Hindu Amarnath cave up in the high Himalayas of Kashmir. Uses the military power to conduct this Hindu pilgrimage, which is not a secular duty of a Governor.
In 2000 on the eve of former President Clinton’s visit to THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) the army had massacred 43 Kashmiri Sikh civilians in village Chitisinghpura. Our party has been writing to Governor Vohra for several years to institute a CBI investigation into this heinous and unforgivable crime. But Mr. Vohra sticks to his wicket and refuses to take criminal action against the army scallywags who killed these innocent Sikh’s in cold blood.
We feel if Mr. Harish Khare had been fair, impartial he would not have put this story praising Mr. Vohra on the first page of The Tribune.
We appeal to all the readers to write and ask Mr. Harish Khare to practice good and fair journalism.
