Referendum is a tool of democracy to solve a vexed imbroglio peacefully. Why is the Hindu state perturbed if it has done no wrong? – Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune Dated 4th July, 2020
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that the High Court and the Hindutva media should not make a mountain of a mole hill. Mr. Pannu is simply seeking a referendum. A referendum is a tool in the tool box of a democracy, whereby any contentious issue can be solved peacefully and without bloodshed. Like a referendum a plebiscite also serves the same purpose. After 1947, Jawahar Lal Nehru as the Premier of THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) took the case for a plebiscite for Kashmir and its peaceful solution to the UN. The United Nation’s Security Council accepted Nehru’s proposal and in 1948 passed the resolution for a plebiscite in Kashmir.
Since a referendum and a plebiscite are practically similar in character, then Nehru should also be placed in the same dock as Mr. Pannu.
We assume that the Union Hindutva Government in Delhi and the High Court in Chandigarh are blessed with the same grey matter to understand that an individual organization like Sikh’s for Justice cannot hold a referendum. A referendum can only be held under the auspices of the United Nations or a sovereign state. As an example the UN Security Council has ordered a plebiscite for Kashmir and in recent years Britain has held two referendums and Catalonia held one referendum in the Spanish province.
The reason why the right wing extremist Hindu state has got jittery over this simple tool of democracy, a referendum is that it has committed the genocide, memoricide, vandalism, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity of the Sikh people’s since 1947. We would suggest to the right wing Hindutva leaders and the High Court in Chandigarh that a commission should be setup to hear these grievances of the Sikh peoples instead of running about like chickens with their heads chopped off.
