CONTRIBUTED BY A BRAVE AND WIDE AWAKE SIKH. (HINDUS OUGHT TO WAKE UP, TOO, and see their DEGRADATION throughout Hindustan.)
Dear SIKHS WORLDWIDE,
Why is the Governor of East Punjab a (retired) GENERAL of army, a Catholic and the one who does not care for our TEN Divine native Gurus, nor speak one correct sentence in Punjabi?
Is our land of gurus a WAR ZONE? On what ground is the climate of "war" created? Why can't the generals in the Hindustani Army on ACTIVE SERVICE be good enough to meet any threat from beyond the frontiers?
Can't we realise that what the people of EAST Punjab need most desperately right now is EDUCATION, EDUCATION, EDUCATION, and COMPUTERS in every family, NOT a General to RULE, INTIMIDATE or GOVERN us.
Which other State or Country on earth with close to 25 million population is GOVERNED by a total "stranger" to its culture, language, history and RELIGION? Let us find out and NAME the unfortunate "coolie colony" that is, POLITICALLY speaking, like our own East Punjab. (Please note "Punjab" had LAHORE and FIVE RIVERS flowing through it.)
We are most disappointed with the entire Sikh Panth (especially the so-called leaders) if NONE is capable of comprehending the horrendous immediate and long term IMPLICATIONS of such a relic of past SLAVERY.
We MUST NOT surrender our top political and constitutional posts to those who wish to see us all "clean shaven" LIKE THEM (if not converted to THEIR "Saviours").
In the "constitutional" line our people In EAST Punjab have CF RODRIGUES, the Governor, a Catholic, and then ABDUL KALAM, a MUSLIM (in post PARTITION India) and in the political line we have the son of Maharaja Yadavindra Singh and above him, Sonia KHAN of Italy. What a LAUGH we are!.
Let us see the unity, devotion, commitment, dedication and loyalty of the entire Catholic world today, and learn a lesson from their STRENGTH, especially having FLED LAHORE in 1947 in three clothes because of such "surrenders" in peace time. There is no punishment for learning from history or copying the SUCCESSFUL on earth. So, let us also call August 15 the day of PARTITION OF PUNJAB to look brave to the world.
In just ten days from today the most cowardly (collectively speaking), being GOVERNED by a "foreigner", will celebrate the historic day of utmost courage and valour of their fore-fathers in 1699.
Can't we see with our naked eyes that the Governor of EAST Punjab cares two hoots for our Sikhi and LITTLE for the much proclaimed Hindu Dharam. Neither a Sikh or Khalsa, nor a Hindu or Rajput has shown the guts to either ask for his prompt dismissal or transfer, or commended his native religion to him.
What about a RESOLUTION passed by a Gurdwara, (impressively titled) SGPC or any organisation demanding the appointment of a SIKH Governor for EAST Punjab?
Our weakness will only INVITE yet another aggression or onslaught. 1947 and 1984 did not come about accidentally.
