The Tribune 29th October 2018
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal Amritsar states that our party appreciates the strong and determined stand of President Donald Trump in declining the invitation to attending THIS’s ( Theocratic Hindu Indian state) Republic Day function in Delhi on 26th January 2019.
Our party is of the opinion that the Hindu state has cheated the US in first holding two plus two talks between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defence Secretary Jim Mattis, their Hindu Indian counterparts Sushma Sawaraj and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharamn. Our party was weary of the Hindu Indian part keeping its word with the Americans who promised to let Hindu India get sensitive technology and Defence weapons which would be the latest.
Now after Hindu India has not kept its word and broken US law-Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), the Americans have now realised that what the British political thinker JS Mill said that the Hindus are devious my character should have rung the bell much sooner.
We would also suggest that the US abrogates its 123 nuclear agreement with THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian state).
Our party is reproducing its statement of 11th October 2018 for the information and analysis of the Hindu state’s policies in all matters, which pre-warned the Americans of their dealings with the Hindu state.
The press statement of 11th October 2018 is printed below:
Press statement of Simranjit Singh Mann, President, Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar), Quilla S Harnam Singh, Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab.
Dated- 11th October 2018.
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that our party and the Sikhs want perennial peace and tranquillity in South Asia. We are against the amassing of lethal and nuclear weapons in South Asia by Islamic Pakistan , Communist China and THIS (Theocratic Hindu India State).
The Sikhs are a sui generis sovereign people but stateless at this juncture of their history. The Sikh and Punjabi civilization is spread out in the Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, UT-Chandigarh, Rajasthan, Jammu & Kashmir, Leh, Ladhak and Kutch in Gujarat, which would come in the direct fire of these three nuclear armed states if they came to war, resulting in the total and complete annihilation of the Sikh and Punjabi race.
The recent arms sales of lethal weapons by Russia to the Hindu state would heighten the chances of a nuclear war breaking out.
Soviet Russia and now Russia has had a traditional close relationship with the Hindu state and the Soviet Union has always vetoed any proposed action against the Hindu state.
In the 1971 Indo-Pak war the Soviet Union protected the Hindu state from Pakistan getting any support from the US though the American 7th Fleet remained in the Bay of Bengal to pre-empt any action against Pakistan. However, the US did not help Pakistan in its breakup and Bangladesh seceding from it.
In 1979 the Soviet Union invaded and occupied Afghanistan. The Hindu state supported the Soviet Union’s occupation of Afghanistan. The Sikhs however feared as they had experience of Afghanistan’s affairs, that the Soviet Union had intentions of reaching the warm water ports of the Indian Ocean. The Sikh polity then, therefore, was against Soviet Russian occupation of Afghanistan.
In 1984 the Soviet Union gave physical support to the Indian army by helping it to lay a seige to the holiest Sikh Shrine the Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple) at Amritsar in a military ingress codenamed Operation Bluestar of 1984.
The Soviet Union’s Defence Minister Marshal Dmitriy Ustinov camped and stayed in Delhi throughout the Soviet’s, Indian and the British armies campaign against the stateless Sikh’s that year in 1984.
After the joint Russo-Sino military exercises recently these past months and China buying sophisticated military wares from Russia and Russia giving arms aid to Islamic Pakistan, Hindu India feels surrounded by inimical powers.
Seeing itself helpless, surrounded on all its borders, the Hindu Indian state has now bought lethal weaponry from Russia which has further promised to give it oil and gas.
The Hindu state cannot do without Shia Iran’s oil and its port at Chabar from where the Hindu state means to enter Afghanistan and the republics of Central Asia. It must be said that the Hindu state has always been helping Shia Iran in its nuclear programme to counterbalance Sunni Pakistan’s nuclear might.
Despite the US threat of placing an economic embargo against States that trade with Russia and Iran, the Hindu state has stood up in defiance of the American policy against Russia and Iran.
Since our party is against lethal armaments slipping into the hands of the nuclear armed Hindu Indian state we would like to remind the US of their Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), to take action against any country that trades with Iran and Russia as Sikh’s stand for peace and non militarization of South Asia.
After the Americans have turned down the Hindu state’s invitation to the Republic Day functions, Hindu leaders are scurrying around some important world leader to be the substitute for President Trump. We hope the world leader who will accept such an invitation would think of his honour and dignity of the state he represents, before accepting an invitation that has been declined by President Trump.
Our party would appreciate if the American state takes the disinformation the Hindu state is spreading maliciously that the Sikhs are extremists, hardliners and radicals with a pinch of salt as the Sikhs are a confidant, truthful, brave sui generis sovereign nation but stateless at this juncture of their history.
