Letter of Simranjit Singh Mānn to the Editor of The Tribune regarding the belittling of Sikhs by the Hindutva Press and media.
The Tribune Dated 20 June, 2020
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that Khalistani’s and Sikh’s are not terrorists. Since 1984, The Tribune, Indian Express, Times of India and The Hindustan Times have been distorting the image of the Sikh’s and calling them terrorists, extremists, radicals and hardliners.
These newspapers must tell us what their state is doing in Ladakh, losing territory and military posts to China’s PLA, one after the other and have not recovered an inch of territory the Majoritarian’s surrendered to China in 1962. The Sikh’s are a brave martial race and we object to these newspapers calling us terrorist etc.
We hope THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) will show some valour in Ladakh and regain the territory it lost there since April this year and the 39,000 Sq. Kms. of territory it surrendered to Communist China in 1962.
This is my riposte to this slander and belittlement of the Sikh peoples.
