Hindu India incapable of having Theatre Commands. Economy too weak and minorities have been isolated and discriminated against. Theatre Commands work with absolute unity. Simranjit Singh Mann, Member of Parliament.
The Tribune dated 09th November 2023.
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that our party cannot help but agree with the holier than thou attitude of the Indian Pundit, General Bali who say that his country is neither expansionist nor covets foreign territory or aspires to act as a global security provider through deployment of forces over seas.
But we ask him about Hyderabad, Goa, Sikkim, Kashmir and the Hindu states eyes on Bhutan and Nepal. We also ask why the Hindu Indian state sent a large military contingent to Sri Lanka to fight the Tamil Tigers?
We don’t think we can bluff all the people all the time.
As far as the integrated Theatre Commands are concerned the Hindu Indian state lacks the economic capacity to establish such commands while trying to copy Communist China.
The greatest hurdle our party feels is to recruit a soldier for a mere four years term. Can he become physically fit and become a master of the latest technology? With a long tenure the soldier acquires a certain cunning an intuitive mind and temperament to carry out a mission when the senior leaders collapse mentally and physically.
We don’t think that Hindu India is capable of creating such commands in the future as it cannot command the sea from Aden to Malacca which during the British period, the Indian Ocean was a British lake. Therefore, we must learn to take the minorities along, especially in Kashmir where there is no democracy, rule of law, principles of natural justice and religious freedom since 2019.
In the Punjab and wherever Sikhs dwell they have lost their religious freedom and elections to their Parliament the SGPC (Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee) have not been held for the last thirteen years. What is worse is that Hindu India and its press has begun to support the BJP-RSS governments policy of assassinating Sikhs living abroad in Canada, UK, Islamic Pakistan and internally in Haryana and the Punjab. A divided country can never stand up to its rivals.
We think that the General a good writer believes in mirages and stories from the rich Hindu epics.
Is there need to say more? Yes, in World War II there were two Theatre Commands. The European Theatre and the Pacific Theatre. The European Theatre stretch across the entire continent from the Atlantic Ocean to the Ural Mountains. It also encompassed campaigns in the Middle East and North Africa.
If today the Hindu Indian state has acquired more military strength then of course it can have as many Theatres as it legislates. But in our Party’s opinion it is impossible tell the Hindu state returns to strict secularism and democracy, does not discriminate against the minorities, Schedule Castes and the Tribals.
