By way of introduction to the extensive articles published last year and the year before by GreatGameIndia on the drug trade out of Punjab, India, the slave trade helped propel the agricultural and industrial revolutions in England along with the technological revolution that propelled the masonic East India Company and British empire...with press ganging of child slaves, exploitation of black slaves, and opium drugged Asian slaves, while chai tea dancing boys - baki bashi - was and still is indulged in in Afghanistan.
The Sassoon-Rothschild conglomerate pushed opium and the slave trade, while providing the liquidity for the East India Company and the British Empire.
The Anglo-American establishment (professor Carroll Quigley term) and the British Empire post East India Company empire, was thoroughly dependent on slavery, in which child-sex slavery, for Greek life-inspired prep school, "public schools" were a prominent part. Running a global slave and dope-pushing empire requires ruthless cunning and a deep mafia-like bonding (James Bond) between sociopaths. It seems that abuse of child slaves may have been and is more than likely the "glue of secrecy" for bonding between these sociopaths and the mutually assured destruction by mutually assured blackmail with these very wealthy insider elitist banking networks.
Some of London's most famous private clubs like Annabel's, China White, The Box, as with the famous New York Studio 54, have some mode of live sexual act performance art, during or after hours. These may function as a means of entrapment of those wealthy enough to attend such exclusive clubs.
More exclusive clubs, as with the famous Cleveland Street Club, probably combine drugs with pedophilia indulgences. Such clubs probably existed across the British Empire, linked in the past by telegraphy and then telephones, via the post office, perhaps with associates of Godfrey and Rufus Isaacs and Herbert Samuels - and likely Rothschild-Sassoon financiers.
We may infer that a kind of masonic mafia, at the highest levels, with those with Jewish names beyond normal demographic representation, run Britain today just as heirs of HSBC and the East India Company ran the British government in the past.
HSBC Bank: Secret Origins To 26/11 Mumbai Attacks
#SwissLeaks what the media has termed it is a trove of secret documents from HSBC's Swiss private banking arm that reveals names of account holders and their balances for the year 2006-07. They come from over 200 countries, the total balance over $100 billion. But nowhere has the HSBC Swiss list touched off a more raging political debate than in India.
That's why to obtain and investigate the Indian names, The Indian Express partnered in a three-month-long global project with the Washington-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and the Paris-based Le Monde newspaper. The investigation revealed 1,195 Indian HSBC clients, roughly double the 628 names that French authorities gave to the Government in 2011. The new revelation— published as part of a global agreement — is expected to significantly widen the scale and scope of the ongoing probe by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) appointed by the Supreme Court.
For years, when banks have been caught laundering drug money, they have claimed that they did not know, that they were but victims of sneaky drug dealers and a few corrupt employees. Nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is that a considerable portion of the global banking system is explicitly dedicated to handling the enormous volume of cash produced daily by dope traffickers.
Contrary to popular opinion, it is not "demand" from the world's population which creates the mind destroying drug trade. Rather, it is the world financial oligarchy, looking for massive profits and the destruction of the minds of the population it is determined to dominate, which organized the drug trade. The case of HSBC underscores that point. Serving as the central bank of this global apparatus, is HSBC.

Pathankot Attack & The International Drug Trade
After we reported on how the #PathankotAttack was not just another usual terror incident but related to the International #DrugMafia stretching from Afghanistan via Pakistan to India from where it is shipped off to Dubai and Europe, today almost every mainstream media has picked up on it. Not only the drug cartel's role is highlighted but also the possible nexus of security agencies will also be probed and the now infamous Gurdaspur SP Salwinder Singh (whom Punjan Police tried to portray as a hero) would be investigated by the National Investigation Agency.
First part of this concluding article can be read here Attack On Pathankot Air Force Base – Important Questions
Punjab, for many years, has been a transit point for drugs from Afghanistan. The drug money has become a major source of funding of elections in Punjab and over the time a well organized drug cartel has came into existence with active connivance of politicians, police officers and drug lords. This drug money is used in financing militancy. To check militancy we will also have to control the drug problem.According to a survey conducted by the Department of Social Security Development of Women and Children, 67 per cent of the rural households in the state of Punjab have at least one drug addict. The reason for this growing dependency on drugs in Punjab is militancy and politics under the shadow of a flourishing international drug trade.
Shashi Kant, who had headed departments of prisons and intelligence for several years commenting on the recent Pathankot attack said there is a link between militancy and drug trade in Punjab. "Drug money is used in financing militancy. To check militancy we will also have to control the drug problem. But the trade is flourishing because of the alleged involvement of politicians, bureaucrats and police officers."
Shashi Kant in 2014 had submitted a list of politicians with suspected drug mafia links to the Punjab and Haryana High Court after his earlier letter was admitted as a public interest litigation.
Kant, who was ADGP (intelligence), claimed that it was a four-page list, which was prepared by the intelligence department in 2007, and he gave it to the CM. He alleged that the list was kept under wraps and little action was taken as political careers of those named in it thrived after 2007, even after it was submitted to CM Badal.
Listen to Shashi Kant giving an interview to ABP Sanjha News
Raja Kandhola was another drug smuggler arrested by Delhi police from Doraha in Punjab where he was running a 'factory' to manufacture synthetic drugs. The names of many Punjab police officers surfaced during investigation but the case was finally hushed up.
While dealing with a 2012 appeal by the Centre against the acquittal of some suspected drug peddlers by the Punjab & Haryana High Court another startling revelation that came to light was that only 10 per cent of seized drugs were destroyed by the police. The Supreme Court has said what is burnt by them in the garb of destruction of seized drugs was nothing but "cow dung". The court said illicit drugs worth crores seized every year was re-entering the market, surreptitiously sold by lower-level staff in the agencies. Many psychiatrists have claimed that the Punjab police are pressuring them to reveal drug patients' identities.
Now the Punjab Police itself is fighting an internal drug war. 50 per cent of the Punjab police are drug addicts. There are special committees formed to de-addict these cops. Many senior cops have admitted that there is a battle within to fight the drug trade and secret inter-departmental letters are circulated warning about the drug addicts in the police force. It is because of this intra-war, as explained in our previous article, that we have conflicting reports from the border security force and the Punjab police regarding trafficking routes taken by the terrorists and the collected evidence itself.
A couple years ago the Australian federal police had detected a consignment of rice sent from Amritsar in which heroin and Ice, a synthetic drug was found in large quantity. Australian, US and Canadian governments through Interpol and CBI built the pressure for arrests. The case came to a dead end when names of some ministers were revealed during interrogation.

Punjab, for many years, has been a transit point for drugs from Afghanistan. The smugglers supply and receive consignments via villages bordering Pakistan. The Indian smugglers pay Rs 1 lakh for a period of six months to the owner of a field where the Pakistan smugglers leave the consignments. As the fence is electrified, smugglers use a large size plastic pipe to drop the narcotics (mostly heroin). The packets are inserted from the Pakistan side and received on the Indian side by the smugglers.
The drug money has become a major source of funding of elections in Punjab and over the time a well organized drug cartel has came into existence with active connivance of politicians, police officers and drug lords. Youth in Punjab is hooked to drugs and a generation is spoiled. Besides being a big consumer of drugs, Punjab is a major producer of drugs. About 40 to 50 percent of synthetic drugs manufactured in Punjab are supplied to North America, UK and Europe.
The History of Drug Narcotic Trade
As explained in our East India Company Series, the East or West India Companies' main profit source was not spices or cotton crop as usually taught in Indian text books. West India companies sold African slaves to Americas. East India Companies dealt with one of the most deadly addictive product "Opium." Probably East India Company is the first syndicated organized international drug runner under the then British government protection as part of British foreign policy of occupying third world countries by weakening their people by drugging them. Though not under East India Company name, even today their proxies deal with the same products and their deadly variants. East India Company for its supply of opium accepted only gold or silver – the only international currency at that time. Under the East India Companies the production, warehousing logistics distribution of opium was strictly under the guidance of chosen merchant families of Anglo-European descent from Venice, Baghdad and England which were protected by East India Company or British Army.
Where did they produced it and to whom they sold the opium?
Using the occupied Bengal territories, the East India Company for the first time launched a large scale cropping of opium in the current Bengal and Bihar region using their selected merchants from the beginning of 1800. For this they destroyed all other production of agriculture goods except cotton needed for their Manchester Cotton Mills. This resulted in the erosion of soil fertility and finally the infamous Bengal Famine where lakhs of Indian people perished.
Using this opium the East India Company was able to drug entire generations of the Chinese population. By the late 1830's, there were no doubts opium was leading to the destruction of China. By 1836, opium shipments were more than 30,000 chests, enough to supply 12.5 million smokers. The Chinese imperial army lost a battle against local rebels (triad gangs) because the army was addicted to opium. The financial drain on China in treating opium addicts was disrupting the entire economy. From 1829 to 1840, Chinese exports had brought in 7 million silver dollars, but imports, mainly opium had drained 56 million. The loss of silver was disrupting the internal economy leading to increased unrest. We can see similar parallel with the addicted cops in Punjab failing to tackle the drug menace and the state revenue and resources being drained to treat opium addicts resulting in a disruption of the local economy and a demoralized youth with increasing unrest in the local population.
When the Chinese Emperor said that they do not need opium as these commodities do not advance human civilization and values, EICs were enraged. England, Germany, France, Hungary, Russia, United States of America, Spain, Portugal and Italy all at once engaged China and divided the country for next 25 years to sell their valuable product they thought would advance Chinese civilization. This war occurred in the year 1900 and is called the Boxer War. Europeans won and what they did after that is history. Chinese said it was aggression. Europeans said it was for the Freedom and Democracy of China and to modernize them from oppressive rule. One can see the same statements with Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, etc.
There were many Indians also involved in this international drug business peddling the drugs for the East India Company and made a fortune in the process. The foundations of many reputed business houses in India today lay in this dark history of drug smuggling; Tata and Birla to name just two. These opium production activities ran until 1924 in India and were stopped with the efforts of Mahatma Gandhi who first agitated to remove opium production from India and stop destruction China using Indian soil. Finally the British transferred the entire production to Afghanistan in 1924 handing the production to southern Afghanistan tribes which after 90 years became the Golden Crescent of opium production. Though the production is in the hands of Afghan tribals the distribution finance market control is still exercised by the same old British business houses or their proxies.
With intelligence agencies clandestine operatives acting hand in glove with government sponsored drug production, drug dealers, peddlers, and handlers acquired sophisticated arms that posed a challenge for many governments. With the zero investment and huge profits criminal syndicates with connections with politicians moved into business. As the addicts were ready to do anything to satisfy their addiction an associated prostitution profession and human trafficking were developed out of proportion in all those countries where the addiction starts spreading.
Modern democracies like India are now ready to fall victims on the lines of China into a complete surrender to western powers because of lax laws or following oppressive British police laws. With more and more deadly addictives like heroin, cocaine, ecstasy entering Indian markets the number of addicts and the lure of profits is shooting through the roof. With no central drug policy to prosecute, with no stringent punishments to prevent, with no leader bothering about the future of Indian youth, different state police forces are grappling with this new menace of narcotic terrorism with their over stretched duties and understaffed personnel. With no coordination from central intelligence forces in understanding this narcotic menace and with suppliers embedding their interests to mainstream political parties the state police forces are clueless and directionless, though if understood they can tackle the issue effectively.

HSBC bosses issue apology for 'unacceptable events' at Swiss bank
Chairman Douglas Flint and chief executive Stuart Gulliver say 'horrible reputational damage' has hit bank in wake of leaked documents

By James Titcomb
HSBC's bosses have issued a full apology for allowing its Swiss private bank to encourage tax evasion, accepting that the scandal had caused "horrible reputational damage".
Douglas Flint, the bank's chairman, said he found breaking tax laws "abhorrent" and "completely unacceptable", and said Europe's largest bank was doing its utmost to improve.
However, he suggested that the bank may struggle to ever get completely on top of misconduct issues, intimating that stamping out bad behaviour completely is all but impossible, comparing it to the seemingly-endless task of painting the Forth Bridge. The most recent of the banking scandals to engulf HSBC – collusion in tax evasion by clients of HSBC's Swiss private banking offshoot – came too late for the authors fully to explore its magnitude and lessons. Yet for those looking for explanations of how such an apparently well-managed bank could have strayed so far from the straight and narrow, The Lion Wakes provides them in spades.

Jeremy Warner explores HSBC's rise from an outpost of empire to a global leviathan
HSBC: from a single Hong Kong branch to one of the world's most powerful banking behemoths.
by Jeremy Warner
05 Apr 2015
HSBC began life as a single branch on the Hong Kong waterfront in 1865, an island port ceded to Britain by the Chinese under the Treaty of Nanjing. What made it different from all the other banks gathering around the honeypot of already explosive growth in Asian trade finance was that it was the first to be locally incorporated and capitalised. All the others were just branch offices of British and other foreign banks. This immediately gave HSBC a cache on the Chinese mainland not enjoyed by rivals.
Yet the bank always maintained strong links with the old country, from which it drew most of its senior staff, and as Hong Kong transmogrified during the Sixties and Seventies into one of the Far East's most important financial centres, HSBC began to take on global pretensions. There followed a string of international acquisitions, taking the bank first into the United States and then into Europe and Latin America. Yet oddly enough, HSBC struggled when it came to recolonising the United Kingdom.
Its first attempt, a takeover bid for Royal Bank of Scotland, was scuppered by a combination of nascent Scottish nationalism – bizarre, given the Scottish pedigree of so many of HSBC's senior executives – and intransigent opposition from the Bank of England, which seemed to regard HSBC as a kind of Chinese stooge. How different and less serious the financial crisis might have looked had HSBC got its way. Eventually, HSBC's then chairman, Willie Purves, opted for Midland Bank instead, but even then he had to re-domicile the bank to London to persuade the Bank of England of his credentials.
