GANDHI, NEHRU, PATEL FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR PARTITION AND BLOODSHED


GANDHI, NEHRU, PATEL FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR PARTITION AND BLOODSHED

KANWARPAL SINGH, DAL KHALSA
Amritsar Sahib - The Dal Khalsa today squarely blamed so-called Founder of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi, first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and first home minister Vallabhbhai Patel for India's partition and the aftermath bloodshed in which almost a million were slaughtered in cold blood.
In a hard hitting the leaders of the Sikh group namely H S Dhami and Kanwarpal Singh hailed Jaswant Singh for providing an opportunity "to discover the real culprits that were responsible for the partition". They took exception on the sacking of Jaswant Singh from the BJP and termed it a reflection of the rising intolerance within India in general and Hindutva forces in particular.
However, going beyond they alleged that Jaswant Singh's book has stopped short of unfolding the bitter fact that V. Patel was (indirectly) fully responsible for the killings of thousands of innocent Muslims on this side as being the Home Minister he failed to prevent the bloodshed.
Coming down heavily on troika, they said all three knew in their guts that a large population of Muslims would be the biggest hindrance in converting India into a Hindu state. Due to vested interests, the troika deliberately sowed the seeds of partition to get rid of huge chunk of Muslims so as to make India preponderant of Hindus. Portraying M. A. Jinnah as a villain in India for partition was also the brainchild of the troika, they added.
Holding the troika fully responsible for the partition and the bloodshed that took lives of million innocent Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs, they urged the Indian Parliament to bring all the three on trial posthumously to ascertain the truth.
