Shri Akaal Sahaaey
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
Cowardly terrorists belonging to “Hindu Suraksha Samiti” of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) with some misconceptions and under an immoral mindset tried to attack me at the Chandigarh Court complex on November 11, 2011 at 11:30 AM. This was a very big mistake on their part. I want to make it very clear that the Sikh Nation has always been fearless—in fact it is the people of “Hindu Suraksha Samiti” and their leaders who are fearful. The people who tried to attack me and their RSS masters should have first read Sikh history: whoever has tried to attack the Sikh nation has been taught a lesson. I also want to relay this message to the cowardly people that they should have also looked at their history and their status before launching the attack.
I invite these ingrates to try once again, they will see what happens. I do not need any security as I very well know that the failed attack was jointly schemed by RSS, BJP rulers and the gangs of Hindu Suraksha Samiti with the help of Chandigarh Police. There is no doubt that the Chandigarh Police was also involved in this attack. These cowardly people had attacked under the misconception that I was shackled and bound. But with the immeasurable mercy of Guru Ji, these people learned a good lesson. We promise our heroic nation that with the mercy of Sarbans Dani Sahib Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj, we will never let it down.
It was the motive of the cowardly attackers and their RSS masters that LK Advani’s tour of Punjab should start with an attack on the Sikh Nation. It was done to send a message to the Sikhs that if they do not recognize their slavery to the RSS, the same will happen to the entire Sikh community.
I thank my nation, especially the brothers in their youth who have always sided with me in all aspects—even during the day of the attack, when the police tried to humiliate me many times, they stood by me. I feel the heartfelt wishes of my brothers, fathers, mothers and sisters and the empathy of the Khalsa Panth—for these are my sole source of strength. We request the entire Khalsa Panth to keep this flame alive.
We do not long for the tranquil shores;
our ship yearns for the cyclones instead.
Your servant, Jagtar Singh Hawara
