Khalistani over there and over here
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that the last time I saw a figure of someone aiming an arrow towards another person was a Swiss patriot William Tell who did not doff his hat at the Austrian Governor Albrecht Gessler when the former passed by him. This was an insult and William Tell was ordered to place an apple on the head of his son who was made to stand at a pretty distance. William Tell obeyed the order as there was no way out of this predicament. Tell took a careful aim with his cross bow and let the arrow free, which accurately hit the target and split the apple on his son’s head into two. After that it is said that the Swiss became free having overthrown Austrian rule.
Now we do not know why Captain Amarinder Singh is seen with a bow and arrow and aiming it at a state guest from Canada Sardar Harjit Singh Sajjan. We have never heard of Captain Amarinder Singh being a good archer and we wonder where his arrow is going to hit the object? That is for the Captain and The Tribune editor Mr. Harish Khare to tell. What is a comedy, it is asked and the reply is the one that excites thoughtful humour. We wonder whether Mr. Khare thinks before he goes before a drawing board.
We do not know from where Mr. Khare has learnt about the Canadian Defence Minister’s association with Khalistan. Mr. Khare writes wondering where-“these people have chosen to forsake their allegiance to the land of their forefathers”. Mr. Khare then states that these “NRI’s have not cut off their emotional ties with Mother India”. That is very kind, benevolent and thoughtful of him as he is quite parsimonious with his compliments towards the Sikh’s. The fact, however, is that the Sikh’s do not believe in Bharat Mata di Jai and therefore we don’t consider India our motherland as we worship one God, our ten Guru’s and the holy Guru Granth Sahib.
Further we must tell Mr. Khare that we Sikh’s have been driven out of half of our Homeland, courtesy Gandhi, Nehru, Jinnah and Attlee. We were ethnically cleansed in 1947 when the Hindu’s got their nation- India and the Muslim’s-Pakistan. So Mr. Khare should not try to bring in emotions which we have unfortunately lost with the genocide committed on our people by the Hindu state.
This genocide was not forgotten by the Sikh diaspora, as a result the Canadian province of Ontario in its legislative assembly passed a motion against this barbaric crime. Mr. Khare writes in an editorial in The Tribune that this motion in the Ontario assembly was interference in India’s internal affairs. Which would mean that THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) has the right to commit this abominable crime with impunity? It is strange logic akin to the Nazi German’s who claimed that the extermination of the Jews was a question of mind over matter. The Jews did not matter they said and the Nazi’s did not mind.
Mr. Khare goes on to state that “the Captain has a democratic right to put a Khalistan tag on Sajjan or his band of fellow-travellers”. When Mr. Khare condones the crime of genocide of the Sikh’s then his type of democracy gives him a wide berth to state whatever a genocidaire may think, say or write. But when a Sikh utters anything akin to what Mr. Khare may write then the Sikh is slammed with sedition charges.
It is still difficult to get at the base from where Mr. Khare derives his information that “Sajjan is a very successful model of this Khalistani politics here and there”. There is no point in annoying oneself over the thoughts of Mr. Khare as he educates us Sikh’s on the working and thinking of the Hindu mind. There is no difference in the minds and doings of the Hindu’s and the Nazi’s. They together defend the crime of genocide. They have a common symbol the swastika-
