Three Cheers For Peace –
Simranjit Singh Mann
We saw this armoured corp troop of tanks coming away from the Indo-Pak border. It gladdened our hearts as Premier Narinder Modi was boasting of starting a war with Islamic Pakistan.
We Sikhs and the Punjabi’s literally face Islamic Pakistan eye ball to eye ball, as our territories lie in Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab, UT Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu- Kashmir and Kutch in Gujarat.
Premier Modi must know that he is only an acting prime minister as the parliament does not function and is a lame-duck parliament.
To declare war Premier Modi and his cabinet ministers are responsible to parliament. At this stage Mr. Modi has an acting cabinet and the parliament is in recess. We wonder how Mr. Modi would have declared war when the constitutional system is in temporary suspension.
All this while Premier Modi was threatening war to stir up the Jingoism in his ultra nationalist RSS-BJP supporters.
The Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) has called his bluff and we hope a bellicose Premier will no longer be in office after 19th May 2019.
We hope the military top brass will seize control of military matters and not behave like the military high command in Germany in World War-II where Corporal Adolf Hitler (Retd.) had become the boss of military strategic affairs.
