CONTINUING CHRONIC PROBLEMS OF THE SIKH NATION: The Sikh nation, PUNJAB, The Sikh Raj, had been the First Sovereign and Secular nation of South Asia of a monarch Ranjit Singh, 1799 to 14th March 1849. On this fateful day of 14th March 1849, the forces of the British Empire defeated the Sikh nation. On 29th March 1849 the British Empire's viceroy Lord Dalhousie made a radio announcement from Rawalpindi (now the twin city of Rawalpindi and Islamabad, Islamic Republic of Pakistan) that the Sikh Raj, PUNJAB of monarch Ranjit Singh is "annexed" but not amalgamated to the British Empire, for administration purposes only. The Sikh Nation remained "annexed" until the agent of the British India Empire, the successor of the British East India Company, handed over the political reign of the British India to unelected Brahmins-Hindu leaders of their Indian colony. The Sikhs have been continuing their "Struggle To Regain the Lost Sovereignty of the Sikh Nation, for their Independence and Political Power, by peaceful means as taught to them by the teachings of their Sikh Guru Sahibaans, Guru Baba Nanak Sahib to Sahib Guru Gobind Singh ji and The Sikh Traditions, along with the Sikh War Code (Professor Gurtej Singh 2012, J Sikh Affairs 22, 1- , ISSN 1481-5435), ever since the day they lost their sovereignty to the British Empire.
On 15th August, 1947, within two hours of getting the reign of their free India, the Brahmins-Hindus leadership, they 'robbed' the Sikh Nation, PUNJAB of Sikhs, which never became known until a next few weeks. Exactly, 7-wwek following the independence of India, the Brahmins-Hindus, who had been 'subservient' to the Afghans, Mughals, Sikhs, British, Portuguese, etc, for more than 3,500 years, a trio of CL Trivedi, JL Nehru and VB Patel, circulated their circular to the Deputy Commissioners of Punjab, that the "Sikhs are a lawless community, dangerous to the law-abiding Brahmins-Hindus." The first victim of their circular had been Sirdar Kapur Singh, a University of Cambridge student, ICS (Indian Civil Service), MP, MLA and the National Professor of Sikhism. The person who not only 'rejected' the Indian Constitution of 1950, on 6th September, 1966, in the Lok Sabha alias the parliament of the Brahmins-Hindus of India, but called the document 'curate's, stink heavily and unfit for the human consumption, because it is devoid of nutritious values. This had been the fourth time when the Sikhs' elected representatives 'rejected' a document, prepared to rule the Brahmins-Hindus country, but not the non-Brahmins, including the Sikhs of Punjab of 15th August 1947. Since 1950, the Sikhs have been ruled heavy handedly and without any constitutional power. The very document of 1950, which is known as the Indian Constitution 1950, swallowed the Sikh Religion, the 5th largest religion of the world and culture as well, called the Sikhs as 'long-haired Hindus', the Hindus who had been subservient before they received the reign on the platter to rule India. What a deceit, betrayal, broken political promises of the Brahmins-Hindus of India. The deceitful Brahmins-Hindus who have been trying to destroy the Sikhs and the Sikh religion for over five and one-half centuries, unsuccessfully.
The question arises why these Brahmins-Hindus have been doing so? Simple answers to this question is their own criminal activity to make the Sikhs criminals and declaring through their circular the 'Sikhs are a lawless community, and dangerous to the law-abiding Hindus' (on 10th October, 1947)
Why did the Brahmins-Hindus of 15th August 1947, made the Sikhs 'criminals' and declare 'a lawless community, to the law-abiding Hindus-Brahmins'? A very good question to drive the Sikhs out of the political arena, to take them the courts of law and swallow them, their Holy Scripture, Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh Code of Conduct, to compel them to commit suicide, to destroy their all means of agricultural professions, etc.
As Criminals are dealt in the Court(s) of law, the Brahmins-Hindus rulers of India of 15th August 1947 made the Sikhs criminals and let them harass them as long as they are exhausted and meet their own death. The politicians, Brahmins-Hindus, do not have to meet the Sikhs, to resolve the Sikh Nation's chronic problems, to tell the sufferers (Sikhs) how could, we the masters and politicians of free India, we meet you, face to face, as you are criminals and we are the ruling politicians of India. You, the Sikhs, are not our political foe but are criminals; as such, go to our courts and get judgment of your concerns, provided the Hon justices would like to consider your concerns. Yes, for us politicians, you (the Sikhs) are criminals and '…dangers people to law-abiding Brahmins-Hindus, the i. e., high caste, caste people and us.
We have been smarter than you, the Sikh, we the Brahmins-Hindus, have politicized the country's judicial system, the justices of Supreme and High courts and lower courts have to serve the (corrupt, immoral, unethical, criminal, etc.) politicians. Our courts cannot go against us as far as the Criminal Sikhs, Muslims, Christians and other minorities are concerned. It does not matter if a lost person in wilderness; for example, Honorable Justice A Qadri of the Gujarat State High Court said in 2002, during the Genocide of Muslims of Gujarat, that "Article 14A of the Indian Constitution was rendered ineffective." Yes, we the spineless and morally corrupt politicians of India know it very well how to make the Home, Defense, Information, Foreign ministries and their personnel corrupt. They have to serve us, the Brahmins-Hindus politicians. If an honest person like Mr Justice A Qadri makes some odd observation and/or comments, which cares in the Brahmins-Hindus-turbaned Brahmins Congress or the saffaronized right wing political parties.
Next to criminalization and a lawless community dangerous to the law-abiding Hindus-Brahmins is in order to 'exterminate the Sikhs of the Sikh Nation, 'robbed' Punjab of 15th August, 1947, no constitution rights to the Sikhs, had been to wage an 'undeclared' war on the Sikh Nation in the form of a brutal military "Operation Bluestar" of June, 1984. Further to 'extermination' of Sikhs, the Darbar Sahib Complex, Amritsar, including the Supreme Seat of Sikh Polity, The Akal Takht Sahib, all religious and political institutions (Gurdwaras or the Houses of God) were bombed or destroyed, to (i) destroy the Sikh culture, (ii) Sikhs' Punjabi language (Script Gurmukhi) and (iii) the Sikh literature. More than 170,000 innocent Sikhs (infants, children, females, males, elderly, etc.) were butcher between 1st and 7th June, 1984. Since this 'undeclared' war, a total of over 100,000 innocent Sikhs have been slaughtered, in order to complete the wishes of the Brahmins-Hindus and their bootlickers turbaned Brahmins, like Prakash Sinh Badal, Chief Minister, the occupied Sikh Nation by the Brahmins-Hindus alleged Indian democracy alias autocracy. It should be noted that the Brahmins have had never been the followers of democracy. So much so, MK Gandhi had advised the British Empire's one of the prime ministers to follow Adolf Hitler of the Nazi Germany in the times of the WW II. The occupied Sikh Nation had been a Concentration Camp in the days of the 'undeclared war in post-"Operation Bluestar" era in 1984.
Sardar Jaswant Singh Khalra: A human rights activist of the Akali Dal-Badal Private Limited, Incorporation was deliberately killed by Punjab police, because he had submitted a list of 50,000 Sikhs cremated at several places following compilation of the list to Punjab High Court. Police official, supposed to have committed suicide after torturing and killing Mr Khalra had warned that if he submits the list to the High Court, he would not hesitate to one more number (50,000 plus 1) to the list of Mr Khalra.
The gross violations of human rights, persecution, torture, staged encounter killings of Sikh youth, cultural, educational, social and political genocides have been the common practices of the New Delhi administration (NDA) and the administration of Punjab State. Police, armed and investigational personnel employed have been virtually 'devoid' of human rights.
Fate of the Sikh Prisoners: More than 10,000 Sikh prisoners have been languishing in the high security jails in Punjab and outside, i. e., jails in other states. Children born to imprisoned couples have been named as Jail Singh or Jail Kaur, respectively.
Some prominent figures who became victims in post-"Operation Bluestar" era of June, 1984 have been Sardar Simranjit Singh Mann, a former M P, Bhai Daljit Singh Bittu, his associates, Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana, Bhai Dilavar Singh Babbar, Bhai Dilavar Singh Hawara, Bhai Parmjit Singh Bheora, Bhai Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar, to say the least. Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana's date to send him to gallows is set for 31st March 2012. He did not ask for any mercy plea and forbid his family or any other Sikh to do so on his behalf. He told the court bluntly that he would love to go to gallows for the Sikh cause, i.e., the Sovereignty of the Sikh Nation, Punjab of 15th August 1947. He told the court that he does not need any attorney to plead his case, as he himself knows what he is up to. He would like to break the chains of the 'Brahmins-Hindus' slavery. Sovereignty of the Sikh Nation is his birthright. He is looking forward to go to gallows as an initiated Sikh. He did asked the Head of The Akal Takht Sahib to initiate him. His request has been granted in the jail where he is kept. He refused bluntly to meet with a delegation of Sant Samaj, on the grounds that the members of this delegation are aligned with the administration of a turbaned Brahmin of the Sikh Nation, Prakash Sinh Badal. He further made it clear that nothing will deter him to go gallows. Another Sikh, Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar has already been on the death row for the last couple of years, for the crime he did not commit.. Although a mercy plea has been entered to the Supreme Court of India and the President of India as well. Both have rejected his pleas. It should be mentioned that the High Court of Punjab's bench found him 'not guilty' (a bench decision, 2 out of 3), but the Supreme Court's verdict was to reinstate his capital punishment. This makes it crystal clear that there are two different laws. One is for the Sikhs and Muslims and other for the Brahmins-Hindus. A Sikh or Muslim can never be pardoned, as is the case of Afzal Guru of the IDA:JK (Internationally Disputed Areas of Jammu Kashmir, under the Indian occupation since 28th August, 1947) his behalf by his family, certain Sikh organizations and the Sikh Diaspora. Beside harassment by the state- or BJP-sponsored parties members, the Sikh prisoners have been ill treated, every time during their court appearances. By and large, the courts advance their appearances further by setting some future date for hearing, so that they could be kept in jails and harassed until the judgments are delivered.
On the other hand, one Kishori Lal killed over 20 Sikhs in the Genocide of Sikhs in November, 1984. He was found guilty and sent for life imprisonment. About two weeks ago, he was released from an Amritsar jail on the ground of good behaviour. Does this not evidence that a Hindu can be given parol and pardon, but a Sikh, Muslim, Christian or non-Brahmin-Hindu cannot be pardon even though he is not guilty (please see Devinder Singh Bhullar's case who is on the death row).
Punjab River Waters and the By-products: It sad and highly disappointing that the Sikhs have no control over the Sikh Nation's river waters, electricity produced from hydro dams. Punjab's farmers are suffering from the water for their agricultural crops and electricity is denied to them, as it is taken to other provinces and the NDA. There has been no compensation to Punjab for their river waters and the electricity.
It is amply clear unless it is proven otherwise that the 'Brahmins-Hindus alleged Indian administration is all out to strangulate the Sikhs of the 'robbed' Punjab of 15th August 1947.
It should be noted that since an 'undeclared' war on the Sikhs in June 1984, the Punjab river waters are heavily polluted with 'uranium', river waters are unfit for human consumption and its usage is not good for the irrigation of the agricultural crops. Uranium pollution has been causing cancer and cancer-like ailments in all over PUNJAB, especially in the Malwa belt. The author is of the strong opinion that deliberated usage of armed armament by the 'Brahmins-Hindus Indian armed personnel used highly toxic substances in Punjab, the Sikh Nation, to pollute Punjab's environment and river waters, to kill the citizens of the 'robbed' Punjab of 15th August, 1947. It is a part of punishment by the Brahmins-Hindus to the Sikhs, who 'rejected' the Indian Constitution 1950, in 1948, 26th November, 1949, 1950 and 6th September, 1966, in its draft and final forms, in Lok Sabha alias Indian Parliament, by the Sikhs' elected representatives, Sardar Hukam Singh, Sardar Bhupinder Singh Maan and Sirdar Kapoor Singh, ICS, MP, MLA, National Professor of Sikhism. They all were the Sikhs' members of parliament.
Hond-Chillar Genocide of Sikhs of 1984: The Sikhs of village Hond-Chillar of Rewari, Haryana were burnt alive and their remains had been found in 2011, more than 26-year post-"Operation Bluestar" of June 1984 and the Genocide of Sikhs of November 1984.
A Sikh gentleman completed the story and disseminated worldwide, using Internet services. He was arrested by the police and kept in jail for six months until a court found him 'not guilty'. He has been released about 2-3 weeks ago. Consequently, he lost his employment while in jail. His parents' home was broken in, his father's cycle was stolen, utensils of his household were taken away, without any crime (www.facebook.com/several groups).
Suicide of Sikh Farmers: The Sikh farmers are heavily taxed, made poor and driven to commit suicide, for not paying tax funds. Since an 'undeclared' war of June 1984, committing suicide by more than 275,000 farmers considered as the greatest tragedy in Punjab. The community that was boasted as the 'bread basket' of the 'Brahmins-Hindus' democracy or democracy!
