Union Government of Modi – Shah should not spread false information to the media about the Khalistan movement. A case of the pot calling the kettle black .-Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune dated 19 February 2020
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that the Khalistan movement for an independent and sovereign buffer state can only fruitify through democratic and peaceful means. It must have morality and our party speaks of Article 51 of the constitution and other UN provisions through which we are struggling to change the cartography of South Asia so that such a buffer state comes into being between nuclear armed states, deadly and implacable enemies of one another, these being Islamic Pakistan, Hindu India and Communist China.
The Khalistan movement is being sabotaged by THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) through negative information given to the media.
It must be recalled that in the Badal BJP – RSS regime in the Punjab, the then Home Minister Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal was holding international Kabaddi matches. Our party then had publically stated that these matches were a cover to smuggling deadly drugs into Canada, US, UK, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. However, our concern was not heeded by the Union Government and the UN.
We had also publicized the smuggling of these dangerous drugs through Ferozpur. This gang was busted by the then Senior Superintend of Police S.Hardyal Singh Mann. It came to light through investigation that the gang operated through the office of the then President of the BJP – RSS of the Punjab, late Kamal Sharma. Mr. Badal’s and Mr. Sukhbir Singh’s Ministry instead of pursuing the case further transferred the Senior Superintend of Police S. Hardyal Singh Mann from Ferozpur.
During this regime large scale drug smuggling took place with Senior Badal party legislators being the flag bearers of this racket.
The Pathankot Air Force attack also took place with the connivance of these ruthless legislators. A senior Police Officer of the rank of Superintendent of Police Salvinder Singh was caught with these very intruders. But this whole racket was put into the waste paper basket as the BJP – RSS and the Badal Dal that ran the Union and Punjab Government were deeply involved. Superintendent of Police Salvinder Singh was known to the authorities to be the kingpin of this cross border crossings, was nevertheless charged under another offence and perhaps dismissed from service. Why the Union Government and the Punjab Union Government saved the Badal Dal legislators and the Superintendent of Police Salvinder Singh is very obvious that the Union and Punjab Governments did not carry out the Pathankot Air Force base attack investigation as per the facts.
During my tenure in the Indian Police Service as a Commandant of the Punjab Armed Police I had carried out the exercise of a fool proof security barrier of this air base. Why I was not asked to give my opinion remains a question and a mystery?
The Union Government of Premier Narendra Modi should be careful in future in spreading false news to damage the Khalistan movement.
