.................Great news: apparently!
.............SINGH TO BE THE FIRST SIKH COAS.
What's happened to the India of Operation Blue Star and earlier, of the UNCONDITIONAL surrender of Lahore, and later of the full freedom of EAST Bengal after its liberation in 1972 while wave of repression was let loose on EAST Punjab?
While the mutilated HINDU nation is in deep coma, let's ask, "Who is pulling the strings in decomposing BROKEN Bharat whose Constitution guarantees Death to the Sikh in Amritsar, and continuous BASHING of the Hindu in Ayodhya?"
First, the Army chief:
1. Only a very simple person, perhaps from another planet, will plead IGNORANCE to the fact that there has been a lack of good Sikh officers for this prestigious post in the previous SIX DECADES.
HIGH COMMISSIONER IN LONDON:
2. A Sikh has still not been selected to go to LONDON as India's high commissioner. Why not?
Reason for 1: The rising HINDU wave in PARTITIONED India that surrendered upon her knees vast territories for an ISLAMIC republic on its soil in 1947, is about to turn militant.
Hindu was not born to be ETERNALLY a conceding Gandhian goat.
If this is also the conclusion of R.A.W. (Research and Analysis Wing of Partitioned India's Home Ministry who has more Sikh "terrorists" on record than Kashmiri militants), then It is better to have them CRUSHED by a Sikh with a gun.
Reason for 2: There are top secret bank accounts in LONDON in the names of several corrupt and "thug" GANDHIS starting with Nehru and Indira, down to Rajiv KHAN whose huge BOFORS commission and all the astronomical wealth deposited in Nehru Foundation, Indira Foundation and Rajiv Foundation and so on, is in banks in London and Switzerland.
Today this despicable India under Sonia Khan and Abdul Kalam cannot have a Sikh in top diplomatic post in London, who will spill the beans in no time and will also block contracts for defence services where commissions and bribes for India's Defence Minister and Italy's MAFIA are set aside on regular basis.
It is for this reason of CORRUPTION that only Central government in India orders the most expensive WAR MACHINES from abroad. In contrast even Belgium and Austria and 23 other countries in EU, can buy what they want DIRECT from anywhere, bypassing Brussels.
There is explanation and historic precedence for both cases, No 1 and No 2, but readers are invited to do some INVESTIGATIVE journalism on Dirty Dynasty themselves.
Why is the poor farmer in EAST Punjab getting poorer while Priyenka Wadra and Rahul KHAN (grandson of Feroze Khan of Allahabad) are getting richer?

........"I'm Indian first: J J Singh [India News]"
New Delhi, Nov 27 Army chief-designate Joginder Jaswant Singh today downplayed the record of his becoming the first Sikh to occupy the post, and said he would faithfully carry out the responsibilities entrusted to him.
''I am Indian first and foremost,'' he told UNI at his residence, and recalled a Jawaharlal Nehru quote that religion is no guide to a man's ability.
Asked about his priorities as Army chief, the Lt General, who will take over on Feruary one next year, said he would comment on that at an ''appropriate time''.
''I am conscious of the issues facing the Army but require some time to study them in further detail before commenting on that.
''I will speak in due course,'' he added.
Army top post for face of Kargil
Singh: Rare honour (FOOLS, WHY SHOULD IT BE A RARE HONOUR FOR A SIKH, NATIVE OF SOIL, WHEN NO EYE BROWS ARE RAISED IN HAVING A MOHAMMEDAN SUPREME COMMANDER WHO CAN EVEN ORDER THE SIKH ABOUT? PERHAPS THINGS IN "MONKEY CIRCUS" CALLED INDIA ARE UNIQUE. BROKEN BHARAT IS STILL CALLED AKHAND BHARAT IN CONSTITUTION).
Chandimandir, Nov. 27: Lt Gen. Joginder Jaswant Singh, the head of the Western Command, was today named chief of army staff and will succeed General Nirmal Chand Vij when he retires on January 31 next year.
Singh, the seniormost lieutenant general, is the first Sikh officer to be named to the army’s top post. The officer is the 11th Western Command head to take over as army chief — Singh assumed charge at the Western Command on February 1 this year. The lieutenant general was commissioned into the 9 Maratha Light Infantry in August 1964.
Singh has seen a variety of first-hand combat during his 12 years in the field. He has been decorated with the AVSM and VSM while commanding troops and during his stint at the military operations directorate. He served as additional director-general and became the army’s public face during the Kargil conflict. Singh was awarded the Param Vishisht Sewa Medal — India’s highest peacetime military award — on Republic Day this year. He was seriously wounded in anti-terrorist operations in Jammu and Kashmir as a mountain brigade commander and received the War Wound Medal and a commendation from the chief of army staff. There was jubilation at the Western Command headquarters here near Chandigarh, after news of Singh’s appointment spread. “We are extremely pleased at the general’s appointment that has come after 12 years. It was in 1992 that Lt Gen. B.C. Joshi was appointed chief. Since then, this major forward strike command has not seen anyone at the top…” a senior officer said.
Lt Gen. Singh was not available for comment, but close relatives said his elevation was a “bolt from the blue” as other senior officers were in the running for the post. “But we are extremely happy. It is a joyous occasion and calls for celebration,” a relative said.
Western Command sources said Singh’s closest rival was General Hari Prasad, GOC-in-C of the Northern Command. National Defence Academy batchmates, both the officers were commissioned on the same day — August 2, 1964.
However, Singh nosed ahead on Indian Commission number: his is IC 16078 to Prasad’s IC 16109.
“Forty years ago, neither could have guessed that the top seat would boil down not to passing grades but some minutes’ seniority in the commissioning,” an officer said.
