Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that we do not agree with the author that 1962 sowed the seeds of enmity between the Hindu’s and the Muslim’s. In fact the seeds were sown in 715 when Mohammad bin Qasim invaded sind. Even Mohammad Ali Jinnah acknowledged this fact. Ladakh was conquered by the Lahore Darbar ( Sikh Empire in 1834). Therefore, the Sikh’s remain a party to the present dispute.
