Press statement of Simranjit Singh Mann, President Shiromani Akail Dal (Amritsar) Qulla S. Harnam Singh, District Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab, Pin-140406. Dated 20 – May – 2020
Shriomani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that our party is perturbed over the fresh crisis between Communist China and THIS(Theocratic Hindu Indian State) in Ladakh. our party wants to point out that Ladakh was annexed to the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire 1799 – 1849) in 1834. However, in 1962 THIS surrendered 39000 Sq. Km. to Communist China of the Ladakh territory. There is a Parliament resolution of the Hindu Indian State that it will not rest till the last inch of this lost territory is restored.
Since the extremist ultra nationalist Hindu Union Government of BJP – RSS led by Premier Narindra Modi came into being, we have been hearing bellicose and threatening statement of Premier Modi, his Home Minister Shah, Gen. Bipin Rawat, Gen. Manoj Mukund Naravane and RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat against Islamic Pakistan, but unfortunately not a word is being said about Communist China and the recent trouble in Ladakh.
Our party is concerned about the fresh border dispute of THIS with a small landlocked country on our borders, that being Nepal. It has been a policy of THIS since 1947 to nibble away at the territories of neighboring countries. Our party does not support this policy. We stand for peace in South Asia.
With any dispute with Communist China as regards the Ladakh, the Sikh delegation must sit at the table as the Sikhs do not recognize the colonial boundaries of 1849, 1947 and 1966.
