Dear Editor:


The word “Terrorism” used by the tyrant rulers of certain countries, has been misused and grossly abused by them. Every word uttered by an individual or a group of individuals which is inimical to these rulers is an act of “terrorism”. These immoral rulers, by virtue of their governmental powers and resources readily available to them, have gone to the extent of tarnishing the image of the entire communities wherever they exist on earth, by using this stereotype propaganda and spreading misinformation about them.

Due to gradual unfolding of Realities, the people of the world now tend to believe that this pernicious practice of these unscrupulous governments has forced the victims of this false propaganda to, rise in revolt against such governments.

By their bigoted and un paroled harsh treatment of the minorities of their countries, these corrupt rulers are hastening the doom of their countries. This state terrorism against their minorities has worked spontaneous havoc in the interrelationship of communities. These rulers are making futile efforts to make the international community believe that their actions are directed towards unity and integrity of their countries, without knowing that their actions are sowing seeds of disunity and separatism. Crises of victims are bound to invoke Divine intervention. In the meantime let Neru fiddle while Rome is burning.

Dear Editor:

I would like to thank you for letting me participate in expressing my personal views regarding present day Sikh situation in Punjab and India, from time to time,

I would like to address the letter published in WSN edition, December 8, 1987.

I fully agree that mere slogans will not yield any result. Every Sikh believes that one needs to contribute for the Sikh cause in whatever way and capacity one can. As we are passing through severe crisis, I felt that I should contribute to the Sikh cause as much as I can.

Keeping this in mind, I sent a letter to the Editorial Board to give constructive criticism. That letter was not meant to be published, but the Editorial Board decided to publish it anyway.

Here I would like to bring to your attention that at the Yuba City Conference everyone else who spoke was mentioned in the news, only one individual was left out.

In Sikhism we all get directions from Guru Granth Sahib. From time to time one can remind oneself of these directions. Finally, I express my thanks to W.S.N.’s Editorial Board for publishing constructive letters, meant to improve its image.

Freedom of the press and thought are fundamental to a democratic system. If our own papers do. Not allow expressing honest opinions, and then I do not find any difference between them and the present day Indian rulers. I hope this letter will address other questions raised by my dear friend, RS. Rana.

Gursharan Singh Delano, Ca.
