Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that since the Hindus have never had a state of their own in history save for the mythical kingdom of Ayodhya, they have no military history and from the very beginning, at the very inception of their state in 1947, they began secondhand scrapped weapons of World War-II. This was when Krishna Menon was the Union Defence Minister.
Even now the Hindu state has bought a secondhand aircraft carrier from erstwhile Soviet Union now Russia. It has also bought secondhand mine sweepers from the USA. At present its fighter and transport fleet of aircraft are ancient. The tanks, artillery guns, infantry rifles are not fit to meet an opponent in the Indian sub continent.
I met some retired military officers today who told me that their canteen services had also been curtailed by the right-wing Hindu Babu in Delhi. They fear that there is more to come by the Babu who runs the defence ministry in Delhi.
