What Simranjit Singh Mann missed in the 1946 SGPC resolution on the Sikh state

The SGPC general house in Amritsar has declared that the Sikhs are a group . The SGPC general house believes it is essential to have a Sikh state .

The new political situation in the region offers ominous warnings for all nations, including the Sikhs, according to the SGPC general house, which convened at the Teja Singh Samundri Hall in Amritsar on March 9, 1946.The SGPC has declared that the Sikhs are a group, due to the dramatic shifts taking place in the region and the desire to preserve the Sikh identity.To safeguard the main Sikh shrines, Sikh social customs, Sikh self-esteem and admiration, Sikh sovereignty, and the Sikh people's future prosperity, the SGPC's general house believes it is essential to have a Sikh state.Therefore, this house is encouraging the Sikh community to work towards a Sikh state.

Mann took the opportunity to subtly remind the SGPC of the 1946 resolution for a Sikh state and encouraged the group to adopt the concept of Khalistan.Mann even bribed the crowd to wink to show their support for a separate Sikh state.However, Mann neglected to mention that the context of the 1946 resolution and his parties' Khalistan demands are different.Sikhs made up about 13% of the population of Punjab province, which Muslims constitute a majority.The SAD was established in 1920 with the aim of protecting Sikhs' political rights.

The first point was on the struggle for Puran Sawraj (complete independence) because there was the possibility that the colonial government would declare Punjab as a Muslim-majority province in February 1940.The SAD resisted the idea of Pakistan and reiterated its call for Sawraj.Mahatma Gandhi wrote to Master Tara Singh at the time, after the SAD and the Congress were broken over the Pakistan issue.You have nothing in common with the Congress, and you can help them.

One of three resolutions submitted at the SAD conference in Attari on February 10-11, 1941, was on the resistance to the idea of Pakistan, the other reiterating Puran Sawraj's proposal.Master Tara Singh said that Sikhs are protectors of India at an Akhand Hindustan conference in Delhi on October 8, 1942, in Amritsar.Punjab is our province.It is a Sikh state.

Despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of Hindus support Pakistan, there is no reason why it should be levied on Sikhs.The following month, an Akhand Hindustan conference was held in Ludhiana to protest the establishment of Pakistan.The 1946 resolution was adopted by the Sikh community.Although the term Khalistan was most commonly used in the 1970s, its origins can be traced back to Dr Veer Singh's pamphlets urging for a Sikh homeland in 1942.More than 100 Sikh leaders met in Amritsar on May 19, 1940, and formed 21-member Khalsa Raj committees, following Maharaja Ranjit Singh's Sikh empire.

The SAD passed a resolution calling for Azad Punjab in the same month.Master Tara Singh said the idea of Azad Punjab was no different from Mahatma Gandhi's 17-point charter on March 20, 1931.After Pakistan's formation, Sikh MLA Mangal Singh declared on July 28, 1944, that the demand for Azad Punjab would arise.If there is no Pakistan, there is no need.

Azad Punjab is different from Pakistan in that it is not on its own terms.In 1943, a bill supporting the call for a Sikh state was introduced in a meeting at the Teja Singh Samundari Hall.The SGPC resolution three years later came when it became clear that Pakistan was about to be made a part of history.Khalistan and lawIn the 1970s, the Khalistan revolt developed as a result of allegations of oppression against Sikhs in independent India.The Supreme Court cleared two Sikhs who had been charged with sedition in the 1986 case, saying their slogans, Khalistan Zindabad and Raj Karega Khalsa, did not incite violence This order allows Manns' alliance to contest the elections on the Khalistan's request without facing penalties under the sedition statute.
