Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) is against Military alliances. But the question is after 73 years of becoming a state why cannot the Hindu state defend itself ?-Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune Dated 18 November 2020.
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that an English phrase states – borrowed feathers never shine. The Hindu state came into being in 1947. Today about 67 percent of its arsenal is obsolete. What has the Hindu state been doing all these years, as it cannot defend itself? It means it has been hatching Polly’s eggs.
Malabar Naval exercises are in order but one of the allies of the Hindu state Japan has ditched it as Japan signed the RECP whereas the Hindu state walked out of this economic partnership. How can The Hindu state depend on such a state which does not march with it on all fronts?
As we have said earlier the Hindu states diplomacy has failed.
Our party is against Military alliances as such alliances led to World War 1 in which over a lack of Indian Soldiers were killed of which the largest contingent was of the Sikhs. Even in June 2020 Sikh Soldiers were killed in Ladakh. The Hindu state has failed to protect its frontiers.
If we see the American contribution to the Malabar exercises, their air – craft carrier Nimitz is one of the Naval ships participating in this venture. In the Indo – Pak War of 1971 the same air – craft carrier Nimitz appeared in the Bay of Bengal, but that time it was on the side of Islamic Pakistan. How military alliances change overtime?
