General Naravane must talk of both Parliamentary Resolutions on Kashmir and Ladakh. Why does he not want to face the Chinese PLA? Generals are never cowardly. Or it is best for them to keep quit.-Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune dated 12 January 2020
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that the duty of the armed forces are only two. One is to fight a war and the second is to prepare for war. They do not have any other duty.
Therefore the statement of the Army Chief Gen MM Naravane is way out of his duty and he is engaging himself in giving public statements which is the job of a politician or the Prime Minister or the Defence Minister. We would add the old Victorian adage that children are to be seen and not heard. This adage in a democracy applies to the Armed Forces also.
General Naravane states that the part of Kashmir which is not a part of THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) will have to be conquered and emerged with the Hindu state as he says there is a parliamentary resolution to this effect that all of Kashmir is a part of the Indian state.
Why does General Naravane quote the Parliamentary resolution on Kashmir alone, when he must be aware that in 1962 Communist-China conquered 39,000 square meters of the Hindu states territory. There is a resolution of parliament that the Hindu state will not rest till the last inch of Ladakh and the Aksai Chin is brought back to the Hindu state.
General Naravane as a fighting soldier should not bind himself to the cowardly behavioral sciences description of the bicycle personality. He is supposed to be brave and talk of both the parliamentary resolutions. Once his soldiers come to know that their General can make his forces battle with Islamic Pakistan but is afraid to face the PLA of Communist-China, then we are afraid they will not follow him into battle or war.
We wish to inform General Naravane and the Armed Forces that the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire in 1799 to 1849) conquered Kashmir in 1819 from Afghanistan of which Kashmir was a province. The same Sikh Empire conquered Ladakh and Aksai Chin in 1834. Therefore, when Hindu General’s or their politicos talk of Kashmir and Ladakh they will have to engage a credible Sikh delegation in such talks with Islamic Pakistan, Communist-China and Hindu India.
Our party the Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) which represents the Sikh nation does not recognize Colonial and Imperial boundaries of British India or its cartography. We would like the governments of THIS , Islamic Pakistan and Communist-China to be aware of the Sikh rights and the Sikh policy on such cartography.
