Hardliners want Vatican status for Golden Temple
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that as usual a red herring by THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State). Will the author’s of this scheme of a rapprochement with the Sikh’s tell us if as go-betweens or mediators why the Hindu state misbehaved, eschewed standard norms of etiquette and protocols regarding the visit of Canadian Prime Minister Justine Trudeau? This hostile and impudent behaviour of THIS offended the Sikh’s.
Sikh’s negotiating with the Hindu state should not let the cat out of the bag till their project fructifies, or else such snippets to the press destroy the credibility of the go-betweens.
I will post an article written by my late father Lt. Col. SBS Joginder Singh Mann on the Vatican status for Amritsar city, written in the 1970s, which was translated into Punjabi by the scholar Sardar Gurtej Singh of the IAS then, in a day or two.
