JALLIANWALA BAGH AND KOH-I-NOOR
As the 100th anniversary of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre is approaching, some people in India are demanding an apology from Britain.
Our first thought is towards the more recent massacre in Amritsar in 1984.
The number of the innocent citizens of India killed by a FOREIGN occupying power in 1919 was less than a TENTH of the number killed by the Indian Army under orders of a NATIVE, post-Independence, Prime Minister Maimuna Begum (aka Indira Gandhi) in June 1984.
Those who are asking Britain to apologise, should FIRST ask the Government of Partitioned India (“Broken” Bharat) to apologise to the Sikhs for the wanton and malicious attack that was deliberately launched on the occasion of a Gurpurb in order to maximize casualties and spread terror among the proud and honourable Sikhs.
Those gathered at Jallianwala Bagh in 1919 were demanding full Independence for India whereas those present in Golden Temple complex in Amritsar in 1984, were peacefully commemorating the martyrdom of Guru Arjun Dev, but NOT demanding the kind of freedom that “Mahatma” Gandhi and “Pandit” Nehru conceded (upon their knees) to West Punjab and East Bengal in 1947!
It is high time that people showed courage and honesty to retaliate if they see any fraudulent and bogus person suppressing the Truth in order to mislead people or grind some “sarkari” axe.
Another point that needs clarification is the Koh-i-Noor diamond now safely kept in London. Some irresponsible and ignorant people demand its return to India without realizing that it was taken from Lahore Durbar, whose writ extended to Khyber Pass, and it was taken from the estate of a SIKH Maharaja.
How can anyone in Partitioned India demand its return that is neither Lahore Durbar nor any descendant of Maharaja Ranjit Singh?
Moreover, does the world NOT know that India that lost Lahore yesterday can also lose Delhi tomorrow! So where will Koh-i-Noor end up then? Please think boldly and answer responsibly.
