What stuff were the army officers made of then? No wonder they "conquered the world" and held the vast and varied Empire, including India, together.
Behind that peace and 'law & order' there was the ARMY and in that Army there were the OFFICERS, and under the command of those officers were the JAWANS.
The armed forces became victorious and invincible. The Government appreciated their valour and duly recorded the battle honours won in all fronts across the world, and rewarded the brave.
Real morale booster was the respect those LEADERS OF MEN had for their Jawans, for example, see the following lines in this account:
“There are no finer fighting men in our Indian Army than the Sikhs....And there are no finer officers in the world than the men who lead them…and we may be very certain that never will their glory fade....”.
Very sadly, the Friend of Islam, Traitor NEHRU, not seeing his own Muslim brotherhood praised in this way, felt so angry and "pissed off" that he swore to demoralise the armed forcesd from Day One, and targeted the Sikhs as a community by surrendering the whole of West Punjab to the 'Indian Muslims' without any condition or referendum. What did he think of the MAJORITY community, leave aside the Sikhs, beggars belief!
His daughter picked up her father's task and inflicted severe physical, spiritual and psychological damage to the Sikhs by that malicious army attack on Golden Temple in June, 1984. To add to the hurt "gallantry" awards were given to the officers and soldiers who were supposed to fight the real ENEMY in order to recover North Kashmir!
Our Hindu nation, the willing slaves of Dynasty and the captives of Congress, have failed to see the strategic damage to India's security and stability by attacking the Sikhs head on, and hurting them all over the world to whom Sri Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) is what The Vatican is to the Catholics.
At present corrupt Congress has put a compliant Sikh in the prime minister's chair in order to deceive the nation and "tame" the warrior Sikhs.
What can be the bigger proof of their treachery than the fact that those very Sikhs, acknowledged "bravest of the brave" by a colonial power have not been used to liberate North Kashmir though six decades have passed. In the event even Srinagar is now cleansed of its Hindus!
When asked, "Who would you trust in your hour of peril?", the FLEEING Kashmiri Hindus replied in one voice, "Post a battalion of SIKHS in Srinagar and we will all feel safe, and RETURN to our homes!"
But doing that would be CONTRARY to the real intentions of Central Government of "BANDIT'S" DYNASTY, now under Italian Mafia. They wish to keep Kashmir 100% Muslim for "easy" surrender eventually.
How tragic to see the corrupt Congress cabinet ministers and "baboos" acting openly against the core interests of Bharat while the cleverest of the Hindu leaders seem to be so dull and naive not to launch counter attack of double ferocity!
