Sikh delegate who recognises Sikh sovereignty over Kashmir and Ladakh must be present in all Sino-Indo talks and meetings- Simranjit Singh Mann
Comments by Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar)
Simranjit Singh Mann states that we want to inform the Hindu Indian state and Communist China that the Hindu state lost 39,ooo square kilometers to China in the 1962 skirmishes in Ladakh. It must be remembered by both these countries that Ladakh was brought into the realm of the Lahore Darbar ( Sikh Empire ) in 1834. As such along with Kashmir and Ladakh these are legitimate the territories of the Lahore Darbar.
Communist China has always held the principle that it doesn’t recognize its territories brought under colonial rule as legitimate territories now under their control or rule. Therefore, our party appeals to both these countries that the Sikh delegate who understands the legitimate sovereignty of the Sikh nation must be present in the next meetings between the Communist Chinese and Hindu Indian leaders.
