The Tribune always glorifies Sikh killers and genocidaires. Simranjit Singh Mann
The Tribune dated 09th December 2019
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that from 1980 onwards The Tribune has always glorified Sikh killers and genocidaires. In this instance it shows us the picture of Arun Shourie. In 1983 onwards Arun Shourie was The Editor of the Indian Express. He along with Prem Bhatia The Editor of The Tribune and Giri Lal Jain, Editor of The Times of India were the front runners of the strategy to take military action against the stateless Sikh peoples and were responsible for compelling Indra Gandhi to call in British, Soviet and the Hindu Indian army in attacking the Darbar Sahib (Golden temple) in an ingress code named Operation Bluestar of 1984.
Currently The Tribune is running Articles by J. Rebro who as Director General of Police began committing extra judicial murders of the Sikhs. Apart from this The Tribune prints the pictures of Indra Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Narsimarao, Beant Singh, L.K. Advani, P. Chidambaram and others to which the Sikhs take great offence.
However, Sikhs support freedom of the press and we have never advocated that the Sikhs should not read this extremist Hindutva newspaper. On the other hand we Sikhs get inspired to fight extra hard for our freedom and independence. When The Tribune glorifies our killers, it spurs us on to sharpen our struggle to be free and to rid ourselves of our tormenters. Carry on The Tribune.
