Fake promises made to Sikhs by Indian Politicians

Fake promises made to Sikhs by Indian Politicians

Lies told to the Sikh's before the Partition in 1947 :
"...in future, the Congress shall accept no constitution which does not meet with the satisfaction of the Sikhs" (The Lahore session of the Congress Party. December 31, 1929)
"...the brave Sikhs of Punjab are entitled to special considerations. I see nothing wrong in an area set up in the North of India wherein, the Sikhs can also experience the glow of freedom." (Jawahar Lal Nehru, Lahore Bulletin, January 9, 1930)

"I ask you to accept my word and the Resolution of the Congress that it will not betray a single individual much less a community. Let God be the witness of the bond that binds me and the Congress with you (the Sikhs). When pressed further Gandhi said that Sikhs would be justified in drawing their swords out of the scabbards as Guru Gobind Singh had asked them to, if Congress would renege on its commitment." (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Young India, March 19, 1931)

Voices trying to warn the Sikhs against siding with Gandhi & Nehru:

"You have seen the Hindus as co-slaves and you will know when they will be your masters and you (the Sikhs), their slaves"

(Mohammed Ali Jinnah, Quid-e-Azam, The Founding Father of Pakistan, warning the Sikh Nation not to cast their lot with the treacherous Hindus during partition of the subcontinent in 1947)

"...Master Tara Singh saw me on his return from Delhi, and seemed really concerned at the approaching departure of the British. He demanded Khalistan, with transfer of population, or a new state from Jumna to Chenab, in which the Sikhs would not be oppressed" (Sir E. Jenkins, Governor of the Punjab, 15th April, 1946)

"Kill the language, kill the culture and kill the literature, ultimately one succeeds in destroying a community" (Pritam Singh Gill, M. A., 1975, Principal, Doaba College, Jalandhar)

"...the individual known to common Indian masses as chacha (uncle) Nehru, the so-called messiah of peace and secularism, was, in fact, the main architect of anti-Sikh policies and practices, in India and abroad" (Dr Harjinder Singh Dilgeer)

"It (Hinduism) is like the boa constrictor of the Indian forests. When a petty enemy appears to worry it, it winds round its opponent, crushes it in its folds, and finally causes it to disappear in its capacious interior....Hinduism has embraced Sikhism in its folds; the still comparatively young religion is making a vigorous struggle for life, but its ultimate destruction is, it is apprehended, inevitable without State support." (Max Arthur Macauliffe, 1903)

Hinduism has always been hostile to Sikhism whose Gurus powerfully and successfully attacked the principle of caste which is the foundation on which the whole fabric of Brahminism has been reared. The activities of Hindus have, therefore, been constantly directed to undermining of Sikhism both by preventing the children of Sikh father from taking Pahul and reducing professed Sikhs from their allegiance to their faith. Hinduism has strangled Budhism, once a formidable rival to it and it has already made serious inroads into the domain of Sikhism. (D. Petrie, Assistant Director, Criminal Intelligence, Government of British India, Intelligence Report of 11th August, 1911)

The real face of Indian Politicians regarding the Sikhs after 1947:

"To preserve the unity of India, if we have to eradicate 2 crore (20 million) Sikhs, we will do so. (Balram Jhakhar, a colleague of P.V. Narsimharao, the former Indian Prime Minister)

"The Sikhs are a lawless people and a menace to the law abiding Hindus ... The [Government] should take strict measures against them." (Pandit Nehru, Indian Prime Minister, on Sikhs)

"Kya main taqat dushman (the enemy - the Sikhs) ke haath main de dun (How can I entrust power into the hands of the enemies)." (Jawahar Lal Nehru, 1961)

"I hate the very physique of a Sikh because of the turban and beard." (Vallabh Bhai Patel, late Indian top politician)

"I don't give a damn if the Golden Temple and whole of Amritsar are destroyed, I want Bhindranwale dead." (Indira Gandhi, Daughter of Jawahar Lal Nehru, Indian Prime Minister, communicating with Gen. Vaidya during "Operation Blue Star")

"We have broken the back of the Sikhs and we will get them elsewhere." (M. M. K. Wali, Indian Foreign Secretary, June 7, 1984, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Radio 740, As It Happens)

"Let us teach these *******s (the Sikhs) a lesson." (Rajiv Gandhi, October 31, 1984)

"... a threat to the villagers that all males would be killed and their women taken to army camps to breed a new race if there was any militant activity in their village." (Brig. R. P. Sinha, Indian Army, March 8, 1991)

"You do not know the might of our armed forces. We will eliminate 10,000 Sikh youths and the world will know nothing about it." (Chander Shekhar, former Prime Minister of India, CK, 21st October, 1991)

    I think this is going to be a good blog to follow. Good to see you here in the blog spaces. Are you planning to cover the issues related to redefining who is a Sikh under the proposal to rewrite the Indian Gurdwara Act? if so, there are some good new articles right here on SPN. Soul-jyot, a forum member, posted one of them.

    Cheers and Chardi Kala,
    Antonia

    I am new to this and I want to be courteous to all sikhs. I met a wonderful group of Sikh Kalsa who invited me to the Gurwara to Sunday dinner. I have never been to a Gurdwara and am interested in trying it out to get acquainted with the sikh community. As I have seen they are a wonderful group with whom I would enjoy association.

    Are you asking a question about what to expect? Let me know. Also it would be really interesting if you were to start a blog about your gurdwara experiences. Why not? Many new converts have this question. You could start a very helpful and interesting conversation. They would appreciate it.
