To maintain peace in South Asia all three nuclear armed states should have equality in weaponry. The Sikhs stand for peace. – Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune Dated 3rd July, 2020
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that it is better late than never, as the Hindu state does not have a military background or history. Preparations for this day should have started in 1962 when the Hindu state surrendered 39,000 Sq. Kms. of Ladakh territory which was annexed by the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire 1799 – 1849) in 1834.
Besides the big chunk of territory surrendered in 1962, this year the Hindu state has also surrendered large tracts to Communist China. Now the Hindu state, though not admitting or informing the public, since April has been on the run and has given away territory in Pongong Tso, Galwan Valley, Gogra Post and, Hot Springs, the Depsang Plains, Patrolling Point 14(PP-14) in Galwan Valley has also been given away though the right wing jingoistic BJP – RSS do not want to admit this fact, because of the shame it will bring to this class of fanatics and pseudo warriors.
Now that extra armaments are being purchased, but the Hindu state has not lost its penchant for buying second hand or obsolete military wares. For instance it has ordered 12 Sukhoi Su 30 MKI from Russia, whereas Communist China has about three squadrons of Sukhoi Su 35 MKI which are far superior to the former.
We are told that Russia is an all weather friend of THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State). If that is so why did the recent mission of Defence Minister Rajnath Singh to Moscow fail to get the latest flying machines instead of being handed down old obsolete planes of yesterday?
Our party has maintained that all weaponry manufactured by Sweden is made with an eye on Russia’s military weapons and how the Swedish weapons would compete with them. Therefore, the Hindu state should think of getting three squadrons of Saab JAS 39 Gripen F, if it wants to compete with Sukhoi Su 35. Purchasing second hand and obsolete weapons demoralizes the armed forces.
The T 90 is also an out dated tank. We want to know that if it is now operating in Ladakh, did the Russians test its efficiency in the winters of Siberia? If not, then the Hindu state must buy the latest Leopard 2A7 German Tank that is manufactured to operate in the cold winters of Europe.
Though the Hindu state has gone into a shopping spree of buying more weapons, and as it is customary in Hindutva, the bureaucrats, politicos and the military hands will have a field day in collecting commissions.
our party as per its policy is against a war between three nuclear armed states –Islamic Pakistan, Hindu India and Communist China, as the Sikh civilization is wedged in by these implacable enemies. Therefore, we also stand for a military balance between these three nuclear armed states and therefore would want an equality of weaponry between these three powers which are always showing their fangs and ready to get at each other’s throats.
The other factor in maintaining peace in South Asia would be fresh cartography in creating an independent and sovereign Sikh state which would act as a buffer between these inimical states.
