BRITISH PM IN AMRITSAR
There are 28 (twenty-eight) States in Partitioned Indian Secular State but only one has an official memorial to the martyrs in the struggle for Independence from the British rulers. And that proud and honourable State is PUNJAB.
DAVID CAMERON VISITS AMRITSAR.
Now let us look at the recent visit to Amritsar by Mr Cameron, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

MASSACRE: Remorse over 1919 killing of Sikhs.
The Prime Minister will make a public show of remorse and deep shame today over one of the most infamous incidents the history of the British Empire.
David Cameron will visit Amritsar to pay his respect to 379 Sikh civilians killed by British soldiers in 1919.
The massacre near the city’s Golden Temple followed rioting in the Punjab that killed several Britons and helped push India towards Independence.
The Prime Minister will not apologise but consider the incident a “shameful” episode in British history. After visiting the 400 year-old temple the holiest site for Sikhs, he will lay a wreath and sign a book of remembrance for those killed.
THE HONOURABLE BRITISH LION’S REMORSE BUT THE DESPICABLE INDIAN “RAT” IS SILENT.
PRE JALLIANWALA BAGH MASSACRES
Before the arrival of the British there were literally millions of natives of Hindusthan who were slain, beheaded or tortured to death during the savage and brutal MOGUL era. There is not even one official memorial to them anywhere!
BUILD ANOTHER MEMORIAL IN AMRITSAR!
Is it not, therefore, worth a close scrutiny as to why the then (1984) Indian Prime Minister, MAIMOONA BEGUM, who called herself “Indira Gandhi” despite her secret “nikah” to a Muslim, Feroze KHAN of Allahabad, attacked Sri Harmandir Sahib in Amritsar so viciously?
Nor only through IGNORANCE but also by forgetting history have the Sikhs paid a very high price in history. The latest instance of the brutal massacre of the unarmed peaceful Sikh families, gathered to commemorate a historic anniversary, was the massacre in Golden Temple in Amritsar in June 1984 that should not have happened at all. In that attack nearly FOUR TIMES more INNOCENT Sikhs- men, women and children, were killed in the so-called free India, than those killed by the foreign occupying power in 1919.
The dark foreboding is that anti Sikh massacres could recur if we go on ignoring history while the Hindus have been subjected to frequent massacres since 1192 AD when the Turks occupied Delhi and subjected the city to the most horrendous massacre of the Hindus. Do we find a memorial to them in Delhi? Obviously not, if they are regarded “vermin” or “rats” by the Hindus themselves.
And do we see a memorial anywhere to those massacred in NOAKHALI in August 1946? Or, to all the MILLIONS massacred, raped and forced out of their homes in 1947? Obviously not, since they, too, are regarded “vermin” or “rats” by the Government of India that is elected by the Hindus themselves. Yet we know that a nation that does not raise memorials to their own dead is bound to DIE sooner or later. That is why the Russians, the British, the Germans, the Americans and the Jews ALL have memorials to their dead.
So, it is time for the Sikhs of Amritsar to build an impressive memorial to the Dead of 1984 that should be TEN TIMES the size of the memorial at Jallianwala Bagh if we compare the number of those killed. If this is not done then the world will know that the Sikhs, despite spirit and symbols, are about to PERISH like the Hindus of NOAKHALI. Clearly, anyone who opposes the idea is our ENEMY.
