Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that our party does not understand why Sikh soldiers should die in Kashmir for a cause that is not theirs (Sikh’s). The civil war in Kashmir is because of a deep historic enmity between the Hindu’s and Muslim’s. Guru Nanak has ordained that the Sikh’s are neither Hindu nor Muslim. Therefore, their is no reason for Sikh’s to fight on the side of either.
Sikh’s must understand that since they are a separate nation, that must raise their voice for a separate, independent and sovereign Sikh state, which will be a buffer between three inimical nuclear armed states which are perpetually at one another’s throats these being- Islamic Pakistan, Communist China and THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State).
The sovereign Sikh state will be a buffer between these three states and include the territories inhabited by Sikh’s –Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, UT-Chandigarh, Rajasthan, Jammu & Kashmir, Leh, Ladhak and Kutch in Gujarat.
We send our heart felt condolences to the family of the fallen Sikh soldier Lance Naik Sandeep Singh of village Kotla Khurd in Gurdaspur district of Punjab. The government of India and the Punjab must compensate the family of Lance Naik Sandeep Singh handsomely. His wife and children must be looked after till the time Lance Naik Sandeep Singh would have retired from service.
