Sadly, THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) has lost more territory to Communist China since April this year. Sikhs are pained as the Lahore Darbar(Sikh Empire 1799 – 1849) annexed Kashmir in 1819 and Ladakh in 1834. – Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune Dated 31st July, 2020
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that as our party had stated that the Hindu Indian Union Government and its press were hiding the actual position in Ladakh, we must credit The Tribune for coming out with the truth that large chunks of Ladakh territory have been handed over to Communist China. The PLA is sitting tight East of Finger – 4 and the North bank of Pongong Tso. The ridges over this lake and Finger – 4 are in occupation of the PLA and the ITBP and the army patrols cannot carry out their reconnaissance, as was the practice before April this year.
The Tribune is telling us that another meeting of Lt. Generals, respectively of Communist China and Hindu India are likely to take place shortly. But sadly all previous such meetings have been of Lt. General from the Hindu Indian state and a Major General from Communist China. This is peculiar as the Hindu Indian army is sensitive about the protocol. We wonder why the army’s pride was not hurt when Lt. General Harinder Singh had to hold meetings with the Chinese Major General Lin Liu. This violation of protocol forced us to state that the Hindu Indian state was genuflecting before Communist China.
Now that we hear there will be another meeting, we suggest that from Hindu India’s side an officer of the rank of a Brigadier be sent to parley with Major General Lin Liu. Will Communist China accept having such a meeting?
The 20 soldiers and a Colonel who sacrificed their lives fighting with the PLA without weapons on 15th and 16th June, 2020, should be awarded with the highest medals for bravery, gallantry and valour. We don’t think that in the annals of the army, soldiers have been ordered to go into the jaws of death without weapons. As such this incident is unique as nothing can be as brave as attacking the PLA without weapons. The other point is that why two soldiers from the artillery were sent in with the infantry soldiers to challenge the PLA. Soldiers in the artillery have no training to engage in a hand to hand combat.
We have also learnt that the Hindu Indian state is sending out its P – 8A Poseidon anti submarine planes to patrol and reconnoiter the Himalayas and areas in Ladakh. We must remember that the Americans in 1960 who had little information of Soviet missiles sent in their U-2 surveillance plane, piloted by Gary Powers from a base in Islamic Pakistan into Soviet Russia. This plane was shot down by the Soviets. It’s pilot Powers bailed out, was captured and the Soviets got tremendous information about the gadgets for spying.
Now if the Communist Chinese from within their territory shoot down the P- 8A Poseidon, it will hurt the Hindu state and provide the Communist Chinese a chance to make immense propaganda. The Hindu state will be under pressure to retaliate, but since it has not prepared to meet the present challenge in Ladakh and in 1962 it surrendered 39,000 sq. Kms. of its territory and has again surrendered more territory since April this year to Communist China, we wonder how it will stand up to the disgrace if the P-8A Poseidon is brought down?
Since, sadly the Hindu leaders who are conducting the present operations in Ladakh have no military history and are acting like chickens with their heads chopped off, should realize their weaknesses and leave such operations to professional soldiery. We saw this unprofessional performance when the Hindu state in 1984 launched a military operation against the stateless Sikh’s with the aid of British and Soviet troops. The Sikh defenders led by Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale kept these three armies armed to the teeth with tanks, artillery, mortars, helicopters and special forces at bay for 72 hour’s and did not allow these barbaric forces to enter the holiest shrine of the Sikhs, the Darbar Sahib(The Golden Temple, Amritsar) . This was a battle of resistance by the Sikh defenders even greater than the battle of Saragarhi.
We, in a democratic society need more and genuine information of the territory lost by the BJP – RSS Union Government in Ladakh since April this year. The propaganda unleashed by the acquisition of five Rafale fighter planes, which are not stealth fighters will not boost the morale of the hardest BJP – RSS radicalized cadres.
As Sikh’s we feel let down by THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) that has not been capable of retaining the territories of Kashmir and Ladakh as a whole, which the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire 1799 – 1849) annexed the former in 1819 and the latter in 1834. The analysis is that the right wing ultra nationalist Hindu cannot rule or govern the Indian sub-continent by him alone as he will have to share power with a people who have martial traits and history.
The present annexation in Ladakh is a disgrace. In 1962 Jawaharlal Nehru and in 2020 Nerandra Modi.
