Pitifully after 73 years the Hindu does not have the concept of a nation or a nationality, therefore no patriotism and hence no pride in its country. Therefore, all filth is strewn everywhere. – Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune Dated 26th October, 2020
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that the Hindu’s have never had a sovereign state of their own in history save for the mythical and legendry state of Ayodhya. As such they lack nationalism. As a result they till now have no patriotism as they accept bribes and kickbacks in the purchase of weaponry from abroad. Even when bartering food for oil from Iraq their stalwarts receive commissions. In the purchase of helicopters the big fish have not been entrapped.
Since this is the history, they lack a civic sense. Personally they keep themselves and their habitats clean, but sweep the waste on to the street. Their loyalty is to their family, then caste and then the local area. They have never had a state so they do not have a loyalty to their state.
When the Communist Chinese PLA made incursions into the Hindu Indian state in 1962, my elder sister lived in Assam with her husband. As the PLA closed in on the Assam planes, there was danger and alarm amongst the populace. My sister in a talk with the rural people told them about the coming Communist Chinese danger and asked what they would do if the PLA came in. One of their leaders said that “phir wo hamare Mai Baap ban jain ge” – then they would become their saviors and guardians. This is how far nationalism has grown in this country. Coming nearer to our times, when Premier Nerandra Modi peremptorily ordered a lockdown, had we asked lakhs of labourers walking home without food, water and shelter, they would also say they do not know which country they belong to.
If this is the state of affairs and the Hindu Indian state cannot keep its holiest river Ganga clean, as all the industrial, municipal, house hold and human waste is thrown into the holiest river, then there should be no shame if President Donald Trump says that India is “filthy”.
Hindu India must know its nationality, then will come pride and patriotism and finally cleanliness, good manners, protection of its minorities, schedule castes and Adivasis or Tribal’s.
As a tail piece our Party cannot resist by stating that the majoritarian newspapers like The Tribune, Hindustan Times, Times of India and Indian Express besides others continue to address the Sikh’s as terrorists, extremists, radicals and hardliners.
We give this example as the Hindu Indian state has not for the past 73 years tried to integrate the Sikh peoples. This is because the Hindu’s do not have the concept of a nation or a nationality. The new Union farm laws have further alienated the Sikh’s. They were not consulted in their formulation.
Facta non Verba.
