Comments by The Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar).
Simranjit Singh Mann, President of the Party states that since 2014 the Union Hindu Indian government of the BJP-RSS led by Premier Narender Modi has opted for a dangerous policy against Islam and minorities both internally and externally. His right wing ultra nationalist Hindu government has close ties with Israel, which is totally against the Muslim world. It is egging Premier Modi to follow an adventurous foreign policy.
Mr Modi has dangerously tied himself into military treaties with the USA, like Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement ( LEMOA ), out of which he has kept no escape route. Such military treaties were first made by Chancellor Otto von Bismarck of Germany. He was a master Juggler of such secret treaties but his successor was unwise and didn’t know how to handle statecraft. This shortcoming in Kaiser Wilhelm 11 led to the breakout of World War 1. Therefore Premier Modi doesn’t have the military strength and the backing of his minorities and the peripheral states on his country’s borders. Internally he has deployed his para military battalions on his Adivasi or Tribal or Aborigines people’s. His party’s election to parliament this year in May was controversial as the EVM machines which were deployed for counting of votes were fixed, flawed and tempered with, giving him a vast majority in parliament. The political parties that were humiliated by such means are in a deep sulk and will not support him in any foreign adventure.
Just the other day a Chinese PLA platoon slipped into Ladakh in the Hindu Indian territory, while Premier Modi just looked on, fiddling his thums and after their promenade walk, the PLO simply walked back into Chinese territory. With such an insult we wonder what Premier Modi would do if hostilities break out in the Gulf, especially when Russia and China are backing Iran.?
The Shrimoni Akali Dal ( Amritsar ) stands for peace in South-Asia and communal harmony. The Sikh’s will not participate in any hostility called by the extremist and irrational political party- BJP-RSS led by Premier Modi.
