There is no difference between BJP-RSS and Taliban. Recall 2002 massacre of Muslims in Gujarat. Recall 1984 genocide of Sikhs by Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. Recall no Sikh representation in Union Modi Government. Remember Kashmir after 5th August 2019. All is not well. Simranjit Singh Mānn

To the Editor,
Reference the editorial of The Tribune Dated 08-09-21, entitled – Taliban’s true Colour’s.
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that the Hindu Indian state and its proxy The Tribune and the general press and media of the Hindu state have always been projecting the Muslims, Sikh’s, Schedule Castes, Tribal’s or Aborigines as terrorists. These Hindu ideologues forget that it was the Hindu religious text the Manusmriti that laid down the order of the caste system. Down the centuries this order has condemned almost half the population of South Asia to be the untouchables and removed from civil society and governance. When we compare Apartheid and the white supremacists of the recent days, these two curses are mild. The caste system is hereditary and has continued from father to son to the present day.
Now the same Hindu Indian state and its press and media have begun to orchestrate the Taliban Ministry being over laden with terrorism. This would mean that the world would now ostracize these Taliban Ministers as terrorists. This would mean that they will not be responsible and accountable. On the other hand, if we integrate these fighters into our civil society, they would act with responsibility and will not trespass across the Afghanistan borders.
The media (The Tribune’s editorial entitled Taliban’s True Colour’s Dated – 08-09-2021 is portraying Mulla Hasan Akhund the Prime Minister designate of Afghanistan, who is also on the U.N.’s most wanted list of terrorists as an aberration. It should be pointed out that our current Prime Minister Narendra Modi orchestrated a state-sponsored genocide of the Muslims under his care in Gujarat as Chief Minister of the State in 2002. Subsequent to which the human rights loving states of the United Kingdom and the United States denied visas for him to enter the western hemisphere.
It is also noteworthy that the previous prime minister’s of India including Nehru who oversaw the genocidal partition of Punjab. His daughter Indira Gandhi, who used state armed force to kill innocent devotees remembering Guru Arjun Sahib’s martyrdom at Harmandir Sahib in 1984 and subsequently to cleanse Sikhs in Punjab and other states, Rajiv Gandhi her son oversaw the Delhi genocide of the Sikhs, stood tall to announce that ‘when a big tree falls, the earth shake’s as a justifiable reasoning for the slaughter of innocent Sikh’s. As such we see this development as the pot calling the kettle black. For years the USA and UK did not allow Mr. Modi to enter their respective countries. Even the past editor of The Tribune Prem Bhatia, editor of the Indian Express Arun Shorie and editor of the Times of India Giri Lal Jain coaxed Indira Gandhi to attack the stateless Sikh’s militarily inviting foreign armies of the UK and Soviet Russia to assist the Hindu Indian Army.
Since 1947 the Hindu Indian state has been to war with Islamic Pakistan in 1948, 1965 and 1971. With Communist China it has warred twice, once in 1962 and recently in 2020. But against all these foreign powers with which it has been at war it has never sought the aid of foreign powers and their armies. Why against the stateless Sikh’s did the Hindu Indian state invite the armed forces of UK and Soviet Russia? This is for the foreign intellectuals to study and report.
Our Party would suggest that the Hindu Indian state should not make a mountain of a molehill of the Taliban and sit down with its leaders and plainly talk turkey with it while revoking all the unconstitutional steps the right wing BJP- RSS Union Government of Premier Nerandra Modi has taken since 5th August 2019 abrogating articles 370 and 35 A of the Constitution which gave a semblance of autonomy to Kashmiri Muslims. It should also annul the draconian Law AFSPA (Armed forces special powers) which gives powers to the armed forces to kill, maim, torture, molest, rape, kidnap, abduct and detain a Kashmiri indefinitely, all with impunity.
If a rethinking is done regarding the status of the Minorities, Schedule castes and Adivavsis or Tribal’s living in Hindu India, we think there would be no reason to be scared of the Taliban as said earlier the Hindu’s have as much terrorism within them as the Taliban.
Facta non Verba.
