Indian State Terrorism against Kashmiries & Sikhs 

By Zaheerul Hassan 

On every June 6, Sikhs carry out the protest world over against the state brutality of India in June 1984 in which military attacked on the holiest shrine of the Sikh religion, the Golden Temple in Amritsar, and 38 other Sikh temples throughout Punjab.Over 20,000 Sikhs were murdered in these attacks.The President of the Council of Sikhs has also planned a protest against India's testing of nuclear weapons and its deployment of nuclear-capable ballistic missiles in Punjab thus putting the lives of the Sikh Nation in grave risk.

Before discussing the title further, let’s memorize the tragic slaughter which took place on June 4th, 5th and 6th of 1984 in the premises of the Golden Temple and Akal Takht. The Indian Army, under orders from Indira Gandhi government, without warning,assaulted the walls with heavy artillery, tanks, Howtziwer guns, and other mechanised weapons. Surprisingly, the attack coincided with the religious celebrations on the occasion of the birthday of the Fifth Guru of the Sikhs.Guru Arjan Dev himself was martyred while defending the dignity of the Sikhs. Two main conclusions emerge from this attack, firstly to humiliate the highest spiritual leader of Sikhs and secondly terrorizing, crushing Sikh nation, their dignities and their struggle for Khalistan Movement. 

Kashmir Cause is another pinching throne in the neck of Indian since 1947. The ruler of J&K, Maharaja Hari Singh initially did not exercise the option to join either of the two dominions and later on announced its annexation of India against the will of Kashmiries.The National Conference led by a highly disloyal leader Mr Sheikh Abdullah followed by his son Mr. Farooq Abdullah played anti nationalism role by favouring illegal actions of Indian. Thus these two personalities will always be known as Kashmiri’s Mir Jaffar and Mir Sadiq of current century. They were always being hatred and disliked by the nation. Indian rulers tried but failed to win the sympathies of the Muslims of Kashmir for overwhelmingly Hindu Rulers. On 01 Jan 1948, Pakistan took up the issue of Indian aggression in J&K to the UN, Ever since the state of J&K has remained a bone of contention between these two countries. They fought four wars over Kashmir Dispute. UN too passed its Resolution of resolving the issue according to the will of the people but despite various agreements, still the issue remained unsettled.

Unfortunately, in 1947 at the time of independence, Hindu leader ship successful created differences amongst Muslims and Sikhs just to achieve its hidden aim of rearing breed of smaller communities. As result, million of Muslims and Sikhs were murdered and lost their property too while migrating from Pakistan to India and visa – vise.Basically so called Indian secular state believe in racial discrimination, expansionism,and state terrorism to complete her mission of creation of “Maha Baharat “through elimination of minorities and annexing small states of the region since its inception. Examples of annexing Sikkim, Hyderabad, Jona Garh, Kashmir and claiming Chinese territory are amply highlighting the desire of Indian rulers. 

Indian government is claiming Kashmir as their “ATTOOT TUNG” and tried to make part of their constitution.The continuation of Article 370 under whose cover the state of Jammu & Kashmir enjoys a special status, is totally unjustified and it is within the power of the President of India to make it inoperative. An Indian citizen who is an ordinary resident of Jammu & Kashmir is not allowed to contest elections there. Does it not show that Jammu & Kashmir has become virtually an oligarchic state? 

Indian security forces are trying their level best to stop the Kashmir movement but in vein. Million of innocent people were murdered or taken away; thousand of women were raped or harassed as well as to threatens. The recent report of amnesty international described that 940 mass graves were found in just Uri district.

On May 28,2008 amnesty International alleged that there had been gross violation of human rights, including in Nandigram in West Bengal, Kashmir and other part of the countries.According to the similar nature of report of the Punjab State court and human rights groups claimed that more than 250,000 Sikhs have been eliminated / tortured by the Indian governments in the last 14 years. Thus Hindu Nationalist groups supported by the state actually overtly or covertly are undertaking crushing operation of both the communities.

The analyses of Kashmir struggle and Operation Blue Star reveal that Indian state terrorism has miserably failed to curb Kashmiri and Khalistan Movements. The brutal actions of security forces are further increasing the will of liberation of victimized individuals.Both the nations are fighting for the battle of their rights and survival.They did realize that Hindus are conspiring against them and working on the agenda of elimination of minorities. Operation Blue Star was not like a blue moon but in reality it was the logical culmination of a very long-standing policy of state interference into religious matters. The concentrated and brutal actions against Sikhs and killing Kasmiries Muslims symbolized the policy of religious divisions in India.Moreover it was also an effort of RAW to divide moderates and fundamentalist Sikhs.It was not something sudden, unexpected, or as New Delhi tried to present it, but it was planned, deliberated, launched with a view
to achieve the earlier prescribed results in relation to anti minorities’ Policy.This action of Indian government led to the assassination of Prime Minister Indra Gandhi. 

This policy of division and diversion through a single weapon of Religion is basically a fruitless effort of Indian ruling parties to keep the people disoriented from the economical and political problems. The destruction of Babri Mosque, attack on Hazratbal and burning of churches and temples in Gujrat are the true reflection of so called secular state. 

The movements of Kashmir, Khalistan and other local struggles all over the Indian states some how got acceleration between 1984 to end of 1999. But After myth of September 9 /11 the direct involvement of US has started in the region. American landed in Afghanistan and established their bases. New Delhi got an opportunity to turn the world attention from its state terrorism and focused on sponsoring the crossed border terrorism particularly inside Pakistan and to some extent in China too. She established her training camps and bases in Afghanistan all along Pakistani Border. US, Israel and other NATO countries are providing her complete support in creating instability in Pakistan, China and Iran.Although Indian time being are able to divert the general public attention from her internal problems but how can Sikhs and Kishmiri forgot the blood of their innocent loving family members who have been butchered , slaughtered, raped and taken away by the
security forces in front of their eyes. 

On Jan 23rd, 2008 The Peoples Daily and Tehran Times clearly blamed outside interference in Pakistan. On Jan 9th, 2008 , The New York times confirmed the “CIA” coverts operations in Pakistan. On Feb 9th, 2008, LT Gen Hamid Gul, 

EX - ISI Chief too validated the story about the CIAs involvement in the assassination of Benazir assassination which was pre-planned and executed via triangulation by Khad, RAW, CIA and Mossad . Mossad admitted helping India Kargil involvement recently. The sole purpose of the covert Khad, RAW, CIA, Mossad operations is to destabilize Pakistan. At this time of juncture, I will also like to suggest our Pakistani Political leadership, Lawyers Movements and Ex - Genrals to hand of newly elcted government and Armd Forces instead unintesntionally / intentionally working for the Forign Agenda by giving irresposible statements to the media and pushing the country twords anarchy . The current interview of Lt Gen (R) Gulzar Kyani to’ GEO’ aired on May 31 , 2008 was some how again reopening of dead debate of Jamia Hafsa which can harm the country and never been taken as service to it. 

Concluding the discussion, I must say that Operation Blue Star and crushing Kasmiries are very much co-related and just representing concentrated expression of the violence and anarchy wreaked by the Indian against its own people and innocent Kasmiries. Indian Government anti-terrorist squads are running their parallel states in far flung parts of the country.She cannot hide the fact that its policy since its inception is to exterminate the fighters of Kashmir has been a failure and it is resorting to more drastic and draconian.The double face of so called secular country becomes quite evident from their adventurous approach adopted by her forces while handling the religion affairs.
