    Pak-American Strategic Talks

    The Daily Mail - Daily News from Pakistan - Newspaper from Pakistan

    The Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) analyses with depth the American-Pak strategic talks that have taken place in Washington lately. Our party is of the view that any power, whether a pseudo democracy or a democracy, which does not practice the rule of law and the principles of natural justice, degenerates into a tyrannical power to which its subjects owe no loyalty or patriotism. Since 1947 THIS’s (Theocratic Hindu Indian State’s) states slide into a tyrannical power has been definite and it only has the overt dressing of a democracy. Though its constitution declares it as a secular country and has a list of fundamental rights saying – no person will be deprived of his life and liberty without the procedure laid down by law, it has become a theocratic state. Unfortunately these constitutional pledges have turned into hollow slogans as the Hindu state practices the worst sort of tyranny against its minorities and dalit and aboriginal populations. Against the minorities extra judicial murders are the order of the day and THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) has resorted to the commission of the crime of genocide against the Sikh’s, Muslim’s and Christian’s. Against its Dalit population it practices the crime of apartheid. As such the Hindu state has not signed or ratified the following UN treaties, conventions and protocols:

    1. 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
    2. 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.
    3. 1954 Convention relating to Status of Stateless Persons.
    4. 1960 Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples.
    5. 1965 International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
    6. 1966 Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
    7. 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees.
    It is because there are still 30,000 Sikh Stateless refugees in Kashmir since 1947.
    8. 1972 Treaty on the Limitation of Anti-Ballistic Missile System.
    1972 Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. If this Convention had been followed, neither the Darbar Sahib, the Golden Temple would not have been reduced to rubble nor the Babri Masjid in 1992.
    10. 1984 Convention against Torture and other Cruel Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
    11. 1984 Safeguard and guaranteeing protection of the Rights of those facing the death penalty.
    12. 1995 Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
    13. 1996 Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.
    14. 1997 Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of anti-Personnel Mines and their Destruction (the Ottawa Convention on the abolition of landmines).
    15. 2001 Rome Statute, by virtue of which the International Criminal Court has been set up at The Hague.

    Lord Palmerston, the British statesman said – “Nations have interests, not friends”. The Sikh’s are a separate nation, at this juncture of history having all the attributes of a nation but sans sovereignty. Therefore, we have to see the present US-Pak strategic talks in this light. The Sikh’s by deceit and chicanery in 1947 were deprived of a separate sovereign Sikh state by the British, Hindu’s and Muslim’s, whereas a Sikh buffer state between the historic implacable foes Hindu’s who got India and Muslim’s Pakistan could have served as a state which would have guaranteed peace and stability in South Asia for all times to come.

    Therefore, we look at the US-Pak talks positively because strong states on THIS’s (Theocratic Hindu Indian State’s) borders would hinder the Hindu state in committing horrendous crimes against its minorities and other under-privileged peoples and would stop it from exercising political hegemony on Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Burma, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

    How does THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) exercise its hegemony over its neighbours? A small example would explain how this great bully goes about its business. On 26/11 2008 some militants infiltrated into Bombay and killed some people. THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) blames this carnage in Bombay on the Pakistani’s. As such, it wants all the perpetrators of this crime, now said to be in Pakistan to be handed over to the Indian state. THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) does not have a legal extradition treaty with Pakistan. Nevertheless the Hindu state wants the criminals on its wanted list. We Sikh’s argue that before the 26/11 carnage of Bombay thousands of Sikh’s have become the victims of the genocide committed by the Hindu state but none whatsoever has been brought before the law amongst a long list of criminals the Sikh’s have identified.

    We further argue that THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) should first deal with the criminals that committed the genocide of the Sikh peoples as how can Pakistan legitimately give the offenders of THIS’s (Theocratic Hindu Indian State’s) list as there is no extradition treaty between these two eternal foes? We do also make an appeal to Islamic Pakistan to keep the Hindu state’s demand in abeyance till THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) signs the Rome Statute whereby the International Criminal Court came into being at the Hague and immediately hand over the perpetrators of the Sikh genocide to the Court at the Hague. We want to tell the Hindu state that sauce for the goose is sauce for the gender.

    Therefore, America to keep the balance of power in South Asia must make Pakistan an equally strong military state to counter the growing military strength of THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State). This is so because two swords can only be kept within their respective sheaths if they are both equally sharp. Moreover, both the Islamic and Hindu states are armed with deadly nuclear weapons and any war between THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) and Islamic Pakistan would totally annihilate the Sikh race, which is wedged between these two inimical powers.

    Pakistan needs the 123 Nuclear Agreement as much as THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) for its energy needs, but the military nuclear reactors under this agreement, of both THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) and Islamic Pakistan must be placed under the inspection purview of the IAEA.

    Secondly Pakistan does need more F-16’s fighter planes to match THIS’s (Theocratic Hindu Indian State’s) growing strength in air power which was recently exercised and demonstrated at Pokhran in the Sikh territory and on the border of Islamic Pakistan. THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) states that the Islamic country does not require such lethal planes to fight terrorism. We know that advanced fighter planes can’t be used against terrorism and helicopter gun ships would be better bets. However, we are not so gullible or naïve. Pakistan needs these advanced jets to keep the growing air power of THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) in check so that it does not have to look perennially over its shoulder what THIS’s (Theocratic Hindu Indian State’s) is up to on its Eastern border? If Pakistan is assured of a matching naval and air power with THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State), then only can it deploy its army totally against insurgency and can also play an active role in Afghanistan.

    However, the Islamic country does not believe that the American’s will always keep a presence in South Asia to keep peace. After throwing the Soviet’s out of Afghanistan, the American’s left this region to fend for itself, leading to total anarchy in Afghanistan and Northern Pakistan. Since the 1990’s the American’s have also put the Sikh’s in total neglect and out of mind, leading to grave hard feelings amongst us for not having addressed our political question and the crime of genocide that was perpetrated against us by the Hindu state, which continues to this day and the Black List’s are a terrible reminder that THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) does not believe in the rule of law and principles of natural justice.

    Because of the Islamic Pakistan’s fears that once the Al-Quada and Taliban job is done, the American’s would disappear from this region they want a greater strategic depth in Afghanistan. To our minds that the American’s can’t stick on forever, a mere strategic depth in Afghanistan can’t guarantee total and complete security for the Islamists. Therefore, if the American’s are to leave this sector and build a feeling of security in the minds of the Pakistani’s, then a strategic frontier for Pakistan is also a political necessity. This strategic frontier can only be brought about if the Sikh territories in Rajasthan, Haryana, UT Chandigarh, Himachal Pardesh, Jammu Kashmir and Panjab become a buffer state between these two deadly nuclear powers i.e. THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) and Islamic Pakistan. A Sikh buffer state will also meet a long standing demand of the Sikh’s who are a separate nationality and became the victims of the greatest ethnic cleansing in history in 1947 and today are the victims of the crime of genocide, perpetrated by the Hindu state.

    The Sikh’s got an autonomous parliament in 1925, which is known as the Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee. Elections to this House are due every five years like any other democratic legislative chamber. But through a period of time the Hindu state which is responsible for conducting the elections keeps postponing the elections to this Chamber on one pretext or the other, the main reason being that it wants to keep its Sikh puppet and toady members in power. The elections to this House have been due since September 2009 but there is not a whiff when they will be held. Moreover, the Sikh’s as per THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) Constitution’s Article 25 are nomenclatured as being a part and parcel of the Hindu religion, which is very insulting and the future is very clear to the Sikh’s that it is the intent of the Hindu state to devour Sikhism into the omnivorous belly of Hinduism. Further, during the British India period in 1909 the anand Marrige Act was legislated but today after 1947 under the present THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) Constitution the Sikh’s can only get their marriage certificate under the Hindu Marriage Act. As such these are attempts at our complete genocide.

    In the end, our party would appreciate if the American’s during their current deployment in South Asia would address the question of security of not only the Sikh peoples but also THIS’s (Theocratic Hindu Indian State’s) neighbours, as this region is at a point where tensions could lead to a nuclear war and the best and honest policy would be to create a Sikh sovereign buffer state between these two nuclear powers. It would take care of Islamic Pakistan’s security requirements; make THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) more homogenous so that it does not pose a threat to its neighbours. It would fulfill the Sikh’s desire for a long-standing demand of a legitimate separate sovereign Sikh buffer state. That’s the only road to peace we see once the American’s leave this sector.
