Ban Sought on TV Serial ‘Sher-e-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjit Singh’

AMRITSAR SAHIB—Taking notice of the violation of Sikh tenets whist filming the biopic of the Sikh emperor Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the Youth Akali Dal Amritsar has sought an immediate ban on the broadcasting of the TV serial Sher-e-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjit Singh. The show had been set to hit TV screens via channel Life OK today.

Speaking with Sikh24, YADA’s leaders S. Navdeep Singh, S. Amrik Singh Ballowal and  S. Gursharan Singh Sohal said that the trailer for the serial depicts violations of Sikh tenets. They said that the father of Maharaja Ranjit Singh has been shown anointing the head of his son, while conferring him the leadership of the ‘Sukerchakia Misl’ which is strongly condemnable. They added that Maharaja’s father Maha Singh was a staunch follower of Sikhism and as such would have had nothing to do with the forehead anointing ceremony, a generally accepted Hindu practise.

Taking a dig at the SGPC for it’s silence over the issue, S. Navdeep Singh has said that it was very unfortunate that the Supreme Sikh body was maintaining a mysterious silence over the attack on Sikh practices by Indian media. He further said that the actor Shaleen Bhanot, who has played the role of Sardar Maha Singh, has openly said in an interview that the act of anointment in Sikhism had been checked with a ‘Granthi’ (Priest). “The SGPC should immediately check with the producing team of serial as to who is this Granthi was”, he added.       

YADA’s Secretary S. Navdeep Singh announced that they were trying to contact SGPC President Prof. Kirpal Singh Badungar to urge him take action against the producing team and that a memorandum is to be submitted to the SGPC president within a day or two.



  1. Ranjit Singh was a very unusual man for his time (perhaps for any time) and only other Indian who comes to mind is emperor Akbar. In fact maharajah Ranjit Singh and emperor Akbar life stories are uncannily similar.
    Both lost their fathers at a young age and had to fight beginning in their teens. Both enjoyed outdoors, horse riding and soldiering, as a result neither of them could read or write, yet both loved books and had others read for them.
    Both though almost always victorious in battle, were magnanimous to enemies, many of whom turned their faithful supporters. Thus the rajputs for Akbar and punjabi Muslim, Afghans, hill rajputs and of course the former misldars became Ranjit Singh’s loyal supporters and generals.
    Above all, both eschewed discrimination based on faith and gave generously to Hindu temples and places of worship of other faiths.
    One can say the life stories of each can not but inspire all Indians, regardless of caste, class, region or religion.
    I am glad a hindi serial is being shown to all Indians about the life of such a remarkable man, soldier, statesman, administrator and a warm human being.

  2. No one is ever going to be happy with any historical drama or movie everyone has conflicting opinions. Why do we keep trying ban everything. If you read the Old manuscripts and historical Granths in Sikhism you will see Baba Buddha ji and then his son use apply tilak to the foreheads of our Gurus when the Guruship was passed. Now we say this is only for Hindus.
    The ban on Nanak Shah Fakir was stupid also as those people who actually saw the movie said it was the best Sikh religious movie ever and no human being actually played Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji in the movie it was done by CGI effects.

    These fanatics are ruining the name of our religion.

  3. Why must our community always whinge about everything? Try weighing up the positives of this show versus the negatives. Negatives – some misrepresentations of our religion (BOO HOO). Positives – our amazing Sikh history is being shared. More people will know about our legends which will generate more respect. Nothing will be perfect when representing the past. Honestly, if you’re so bothered about it why don’t you stop wasting so much energy in protesting everything and create this biopics yourself.

  4. Apna attitude theek kar lo , tusi Hamesha Hindu dharam Niva dikhayande ho , har ek example usnu nivan Karan layi dende ho. Is karke mere to eho jahe shabad nikal de Han . Tusi apne bandiyan nu samjayo is Tarah Diya harkatan Chad den . Apne dharam da jo Marji parchar Karo par doosre nu nivan Kyon dikhande ho . Tuhada koi Hak Nahi Banda ki tusi saade bare koi vi gal Karo , te Kise di nikhedi Karo . Asin jis Marji Cheez di puja kariye , tuhada masla Nahi . Pehla apne aap nu sudharo . Baaki rahi gal fokiyan dhamkiyan di . Asin sirf apne tab toh darde haan . Kise choothe insaan toh nahi

    • No we don’t insult other religions. At least that’s not what our Gurus taught us. They taught us to respect all religions and treat them as equal. Eh hor gal aa that there are some misguided so-called ‘Sikhs’ who have disrespected our Gurus by doing the exact opposite because they think they know better than our Gurus. You should also mind your language though because that sort of gand never got anyone anywhere.

  5. Maharaja Ranjit Singh gave a good raj to public, it maybe Hindu, Muslims or Sikhs. Khalsa army was directed to save holy books & holy places after conquering any place.

  6. Didn’t shout or beat a barking dog, just ignore it, & concentrate on your goal, just preserve the sikh history. Sikh raj made such a strong wall on that side that mugal couldn’t attack from that side. Sikhs have a history of pride, they should remember guru & Vaheguru always just ignore such uncivilized people. They are here only to misdirect the main topic.

  7. Eh sab choothiyan story Suna Suna ke lokan nu fudu banayo , tusi benchodo nava peo labo , Asin te othe khade haan jithe pehla si

  8. Harish je tu eda e hindu aa te tu ena das de k, tohade kis
    Guru ne kesh katvae ne , tusi bahmno kesh katvai firde oo….ramchander ji de v wall , hanumaan ji de v wall, shin ji de v wall,
    Harish tere juttiyan badiya vajnia ee……ਆਪਣਾ ਧਰਮ ਠੀਕ ਕੀਤਾ ਨਾਈ ਜਾਂਦਾ , ਤੇ ਦੂਜਿਆਂ ਚ ਟੰਗਾਂ ਫਸਾਉਂਦੇ ਆ

  9. Hindu is a mispronounced word sindu by Persians for people who lived in sind ghati, even the Hindus are not Hindus, their religion is sanatan dharam, Hindus are misguided people of India by Brahman to keep his supremacy & rule India. Hindus should read their history.

  10. Sikh martyres Jinda & Sukha wrote a letter to President giving account of atrocities by police and army, justified their reason to raise weapon

    I would love to give introduction and some information of two Sikh martyrs who kissed the rope before execution like Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev .

    Before this on hearing the verdict of execution, they distributed sweet (Barfi). These two brave youths avenged the attack on Golden temple in Operation Blue star and atrocities by Indian army by killing the former Lt. General Aru Sridhar Vaidya who was commanding in chief of Indian army and supervised the invasion. These two braves also shot dead Lalit Makan, Arjun Das and Dharamdas shastri for thei alleged role in killing of innocent Sikhs in November 1984. Both of them were hanged on 9th Oct. 1992 soon after Shankar Dayal Sharma was sworn in President of India.

    It is always to keep in mind that these two braves were hanged to appease the President as his daughter and son-in-law Lalit Makan were gunned down in his house at Rajauri Garden, west Delhi for his alleged role in Sikh genocide 1984.

    jinda-sukhaThe revenge by Bhai Harjinder Singh Jinda and Sukhdev Singh Sukha.

    They wrote a letter to President giving account of atrocities by police and army and justified their reason to raise weapon as the Sikhs could never get justice in India and they were compelled to take the law in their hand too punish the guilty responsible for killings of innocents.

    We, hereby salute their valor and high spirit which they stood guard and followed the true path of martyrdom for the sake of religion and to get avenge from the tyrants. The guru has directed to Sikhs when all the methods to get justice fails then its advisable to raise the weapon and punish the guilty. They walked on the right path and sacrificed their lives for our to-day.

    The founder of Sikh religion, the first guru—Guru Nanak Dev ji said….TRUTH IS HIGHER BUT HIGHER STILL IS TRUTHFUL LIVING.

    And the duo set an example of truthfulness in their life noy only by punishing the culprits but also by proving in Court the distinct identity and importance of Sikh tenets, its distinct identity in life of a Sikhs. The fearless fighters sacrificed but not pleaded mercy from Indian govt. but instead wrote a letter to president. The copy of letter is attached in the end of book.

    Special note from Advocate Manjit Singh Butalia:-

    “We few lawyers wanted to held them before their execution because they had not challenged the verdict of the trial court. Supreme Court judges sat at night before their execution and they were ready to stay their execution only on one ground that we should produce Vakalatnama from them or their family members. We could not get the Vakalatnama from them or their family members as they had instructed their family members not to challenge the verdict of death sentence. After few hours they were hanged and Supreme Court did not accept our plea in the absence of Vakalatnamas. They were real heroes and true Gurus Sikhs. “

    Harjinder Singh Jinda

    Harjinder Singh Jinda was a member of a Sikh organization Khalistan Commando Forced one of the two assassins of Arun Vaidya. He was responsible for three high-profile killings; Arjan Dass, Lalit Maken and Gen. Vaidya. He was born in 1961 at Amritsar and was martyred on 9th October 1992 at Pune.

    ‘………………….punished former Chief of army staff General Arun Sridhar vaidya who was responsible for invasion on Golden temple by Indian army and was shot dead at Pune.

    When the Singhs were being hunted down and killed, one of the Sikhs’ most bitter enemies, Kazi Noor Mohammed was forced to write in his memoirs,

    “Do not call the Sikhs ‘dogs’. They are in fact lions: in the battle-field they are courageous like bold lions. How could a warrior who joins the battle roaring like a lion, be compared with a dog? If you wish to be proficient in learning their manner of fighting it is such that one and all praise them for it. O swordsman, if you wish to learn the art of war, learn it from them, as they face the enemy like heroes and also get out of the scene of action safely.”

    In a repeat of history, the Delhi Police Commissioner, Ved Marwah in his memoirs wrote the following about Bhai Harjinder Singh Jinda and his committment to Khalistan :

    “Jinda Was No Ordinary Man”

    Ved Marwah Uncivil Wars: Pathology of Terrorism In India p. 16

    “Harcharan Singh (sic) alias Jinda who was convicted and later hanged for the murder of the former Army Chief, General A.S. Vaidya was no ordinary man. He was arrested twice by the Delhi Police during my tenure as Commissioner of Police, Delhi. This self-confessed killer was not just a ruthless killer. He had another side to his personality: he could be charming and humorous even when injured and battling for his life. When I met him after his arrest by the Delhi Police he seemed anything but a psychopath. He had psychological traits which made him and extraordinary person, but these did not make him mentally unsound.”

    First Arrest

    “Jinda was first arrested by the Delhi police in 1985, more by chance than owing to any previous knowledge that he was an active terrorist. A spate of bank robberies had taken place in Delhi and the Delhi Police was under criticism for its inability to stop them. I was daily being taken to task by the Union Home Minister and the media. Till Jinda’s arrest there was no evidence about any possible link between these bank robberies and terrorism in Punjab. Jinda fell into the police net on the basis of a low-grade information about the theft of a car. Only on the day after his arrest when during interrogation, Jinda started speaking about Pakistani plans for shootouts at public places and killings of Hindus to create Hindu-Sikh riots, that that the police realized that they had a big catch in their hands. The acting Additional Commissioner of Police Crime, RK Sharma rang me up in my house on a Sunday morning to inform me about his arrest.”


    “I decided to go to the Crime Branch Interrogation Centre to talk to this very ordinary looking man for over one hour and was fascinated by not only what he told me but the way he narrated his story. He had no fear and no remorse. He rather enjoyed talking about his many escapades in which the police, like in the Bombay films, did not come out very well. Here a young man from Amritsar had actually succeeded in getting the better of the entire Delhi Police force and that was something which gave him tremendous satisfaction. He underplayed his role as a terrorist in the cause of achieving Khalistan, perhaps intentionally but had no hesitation in boasting about his daring bank robberies in broad daylight in the heart of Delhi. He insisted on calling Delhi ‘Rajdhani’ and obviously derived immense satisfaction from taking on the police in Delhi. Even at that stage though we did not know much about his terrorist antecedents, he talked in terms of ‘them’ and ‘us’. It struck me even then that he was more forthcoming and almost friendly with me, because here he was talking to a head of the Delhi Police on an equal footing. He had no hesitation in telling me about his unhappy childhood and his petty crimes in Amritsar.”

    “He was later transferred to Gujarat from where he escaped while being escorted from the jail to the trail court. After his escape he started committing even more daring acts of terrorism. He became a feared terrorist and was well-known both in Delhi and Punjab. We learnt about his involvement in the killing of Lalit Makan the Congress MP and Arjun Dass, a close Sanjay Gandhi associate.”

    Second Meeting

    “He was arrested for the second time by the Delhi Police in August 1987, in an encounter in the Civil Lines area in which he was seriously injured. He was taken to the Civil Lines Police Station before the arrival of an ambulance. This time there was no doubt that the Delhi Police had scored a major success. His capture was the result of close cooperation between the Delhi Police and the Intelligence Bureau. I learnt about the encounter on my wireless set and rushed to the Police Station within a few minutes. Jinda was being moved into the ambulance on a stretcher when he saw me. He immediately recognized me and greeted me with a big smile. He must have been in terrible agony, but that did not stop him from joking. ‘Mubaraq ho. Ab to app ko bahut bari taraqui milegi. Delhi Police ne mujhe pakar liya hai’ (Congratulations. Now you will get a promotion-Delhi Police has been able to arrest me). Here was a man almost on his deathbed and yet he had the audacity to poke fun and laugh. I could see that he was enjoying the thought of not only making the supreme sacrifice for the cause in which he believed, but of being able to be one up on the Commissioner of the Delhi Police.”

    “He was take to the Army Hospital in the cantonment, because of security considerations, and miraculously, he responded to the treatment after a successful operation. I went to see him along with DCP Crime, this time not to interrogate him but to see someone who had earned my respect. I must confess that then my feelings for this man were not that of professional police officer for an outlaw but were mixed with some warmth and admiration.


    It is important at this point to say something about our system. Here was a known killer of the former Army Chief being treated by the army doctors, who performed nothing short of a miracle in saving his life. When I entered his room he was lying on the bed as the lower portion of his body was completely paralysed. The doctors could not say at that time whether he would ever be able to use his legs again. On seeing me he again greeted warmly and apologized for not being able to get up. He thanked me for coming to see him. He behaved as if he was talking to an old friend. He was in a talkative mood and this time told me all about the terrorist movement in Punjab and their ultimate goal of Khalistan with Pakistani help. He bragged about his escape from Ahmedabad and had absolutely no fear of death. He was certain that his end was not too far off and tauntingly told me that this time the Delhi Police would not make the mistake of handing him over to the Gujarat Police. When I told him that we would not hand him over to the Punjab Police as he suspected but to the Maharashtra Police to face a trial, he could not believe it. We later did hand him over to the Maharashtra Police. He was tried in the Pune Jail for a protracted trial and later hanged.”

    “Terrorism gave Jinda a cause to live for. There was no question of diverting him from the path which he had chosen for himself. He justified the most heinous of his crimes in the name of the ‘Panth’. It is the combination of political factors and such traits in their personality that attracts people like Jinda to the terrorist movement. The sole aim of his life became commission of terrorist acts, which he firmly believed would in the end succeed in achieving their goal of ‘Khalistan’. There is no scope for any negotiations with such men. But such personality traits are seen only among the hard-core terrorists. There are of course other types of person among terrorist their supporter and sympathisers who are more amenable to negotiations and compromise.”

    (Extract from Ved Marwah Uncivil Wars: Pathology of Terrorism In India)

    Sukhdev Singh Sukha

    Sukhdev Singh Sukha was a member of the militant organization Khalistan Commando Force and one of the assassins of Arun Vaidya, the Chief of Indian army at the time of Operation Blue Star and also the architect of Operation Blue Star. He was born in 1962 at Sri Ganganagar, Rajsthan and martyred with Harjinder singh jinda on 9th October 1992.

    He joined with his friend Bhai Baljinder Singh Raju to avenge the disrespect of the Sikhs. He then met with Bhai Harjinder Singh. All three had faith in Bani and Sikhi. Bhai Sukhdev Singh’s mother was so filled with love for the Panth, that she did Ardas that Bhai Sukhdev Singh and Bhai Harjinder Singh may achieve their mission. She gave her sons over to the Guru.

    Bhai Harjinder Singh and Bhai Sukhdev Singh made Delhi the centre of their activities. Delhi was where the 1984 pogroms had taken place. The government began to broadcast the pictures of these Singhs on TV and the killers who had taken part in the November massacre were afraid to leave their houses.

    Bhai Sukhdev Singh and Bhai Harjinder Singh then decided to punish the general who had planned the 1984 Darbar Sahib attack: General Arun. S. Vaidya After retiring from the army, Vaidya had moved to Poona. Bhai Harjinder Singh and Bhai Sukhdev Singh had reunited in Punjab and went to Poona together. They arrived on August 17, 1986. They went to the house that Vaidya was living at, to find he had moved. They asked the servant in the house where Vaidya had moved to but he wasn’t clear and they had trouble understanding his language. They went in the general direction and a couple days later saw Vaidya’s guard outside the house. They began to make regular rounds to find when Vaidya would come out.

    On August 19, 1986 at around 11am, they saw Vaidya’s wife come out with an umbrella and the General followed. Vaidya himself was driving the car. He went to the Sabzil Mandi bazaar and bought sabji.. Bhai Harjinder Singh and Bhai Sukhdev Singh were on a motorcycle following them. When Vaidya was returning to his car, Bhai Harjinder Singh pulled the motorcycle beside the car and Bhai Sukhdev Singh began to shoot. Vaidya’s died on the spot.

    The Singhs shouted jaikaaray and made their getaway. The Singhs had also wanted to kill Gen. Dayal, another officer responsible for the attack, but decided now was not the time. They returned to the house they had rented, changed clothes and took a bus to Bombay. From there, they went to Durg and then Calcutta by train.

    On September 17, 1986, Bhai Sukhdev Singh returned to Poona to get their weapons that were left there. He along with another Singh got into an accident with a truck and were arrested. They were tortured for five months and then for a year and a half were kept in leg irons.

    A year later, Bhai Harjinder Singh and Bhai Satnam Singh Bawa were arrested from Delhi at Gurdwara Majnoo Daa Tilla. Bhai Harjinder Singh was shot in the legs so he couldn’t walk. They tried to cut his leg off as well but a Bengali doctor refused to allow this. Bhai Harjinder Singh was tortured for 4 months and then taken to Poona. Bhai Bawa was given to the Punjab police who then killed him.

    In Poona, Bhai Sukhdev Singh and the other Singhs had finished doing Ardas after Rehras Sahib, and then shouted Jaikaaray. Bhai Harjinder Singh was in a nearby cell and also shouted jaikaaray. Bhai Harjinder Singh had recognized Bhai Sukhdev Singh’s voice. Finally the two had been reunited. They stayed together from there on in, and will also be remembered in history together as Sukha and Jinda.

    The Indian Government executed Bhai Harjinder Singh Jinda and Bhai Sukhdev Singh Sukha on October 9, 1992 in Pune.

    They were responsible for punishing Gen. Vaidya the architect of the 1984 attack on Sri Darbar Sahib. They had tracked him down and shot him dead and in the process, restored the honor and dignity of the Sikh people.

    Both of these martyrs Bhai Sukhdev Singh Sukha and Bhai Harjinder Singh Jinda wrote a letter to then President of India Shankar Dayal Sharma in a fearless manner, giving a truthful account of their deeds and duties as being a Khalsa to Sikh nation.

    Kindly view this letter:

    Letter of Bhai Sukhdev Singh Sukha and Harjinder Singh Jinda To the President Of India Shankar Dayal Sharma.

    The hearing began in the case of General Vaidiya’s murder. On Aug. 10th, 1985, Harjinder Singh “Jinda” and Sukhdev Singh “Sukha”, gunned down General Vadiaya after his retirement from the Indian army. General Vadiya was the Chief of the Indian Army who ordered the attack on the holiest of the holy shrines at Amritsar and elsewhere in Punjab during 1984 operations. On Oct. 9, 1992, Sukhdev Singh “Sukha” and Harjinder Singh “Jinda” were hanged until death in Puna Jail.

    Copy of the said letter;

    “EK ONKAR” “Rastrapati Ji”,

    Kindly accept Sat Sri Akal (Salute to the Revered Timeless) by the two Singhs (Sikhs) on their way to martyrdom.

    Theoretically, it is appropriate to clarify that our Rastrya (nation) is the Khalsa Panth absorbed into the Guru Granth Sahib. We took the first vital steps towards the destination of Khalistan by touching our foreheads with the footdust of this nation. The elimination of Mr. Vaidya, the General of your forces engaged in destroying the Khalsa Panth and its power, was a holy act on our difficult path of martyrdom. It has once again brought the historical truth to light the urge of the Khalsa Panth to breathe in freedom, its self respect and honor cannot be finished.

    We wish to clarify that we are not addressing these words to you as an individual but as the head of a State that is communal and Brahmanical. Whosoever occupies, occupied, or will occupy this throne of falsehood, will be to us a symbol of oppression and cruelty. We have not forgotten that when the “wedding party of sin” (the Indian Armed Forces) was invading our Temple of God, a heathen in the garb of a Sikh, was sitting in your place (Zail Singh). The Panth will “Settle its accounts” with him, when Sikh history imparts its justice.

    By invading the Golden Temple, your army tried to rob a nation of saint-soldiers, living in its divine simplicity, of its joy. It gave us a feeling once as if you succeeded in driving us to a point of utter frustration. But by performing our historic task we have reminded you that our heroes like Sukha Singh, Mehtab Singh, Udham Singh are shadowing your tyrants like Wazida, Lakhpat, Rebeiro, Dawyer.

    We accept with great joy the penalty of death pronounced by your court of law alienated from the divine blessings and fallen to the Brahmanical reflexes, for whatever we undertook in accordance with the vision of the Khalsa. By touching the sharp edge of death we are moving towards fullness. Without martyrdom the magnificent fair of life cannot come into full swing.

    The thought of Brahmanical reflexes had in fact started attacking the consciousness of the Sikh Gurus ever since its emergence, but on 15th August after assuming imperial authority, the Brahmanical thought took still nastier forms. In the last few decades, your parliament, courts, educational institutions and media have tried to humble the consciousness of the Khalsa through the subtler force of majoritarianism and material monopoly.

    We are not hesitant to say that conspiracies have been hatched and very subtle arrangements have been made at the psychological level to destroy the great institutions, traditions, originality and unique sovereignty of the Khalsa Panth. The destruction of the Akal Takhat by sending in lakhs of soldiers was part of this larger conspiracy. In this situation, it hardly needs saying, how justified it was to eliminate the military general Vaidya who was not only a part of this conspiracy but also responsible for its planning and implementation. By completing this holy and historic task, we have unburdened our conscious and proved that the real force of the Khalsa Panth is and will remain free from the Brahmanical reflexes in all ages. By cautioning the Khalsa Panth of these strategies we have won the love of Guru Gobind Singh.

    The thought of Brahmanical reflexes had in fact started attacking the consciousness of the Sikh Gurus ever since its emergence, but on 15th August after assuming imperial authority, the Brahmanical thought took still nastier forms. In the last few decades, your parliament, courts, educational institutions and media have tried to humble the consciousness of the Khalsa through the subtler force of majoritarianism and material monopoly.

    When nations wake up, even history begins to shiver. During such momentous movement a Banda Bahadur bids farewell to his peace-dwelling and destroys a state of oppression like Sirhind, a Che Guevera turns down a ministership of Cuba, loads a gun on his breast and entrenches against the enemies in the forest of Bolivia, a Nelson Mandela rejects the ideology of apartheid and prefers to spend his life in a dark prison cell.

    …And we have the privilege of being in the loving care and companionship of that unique general of the Panth Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, blessed by the valiant and transcendental visionary Guru Gobind Singh. We are tiny particles of dust of the numberless heroic jewels of the Sikh nation who walked on the sharp edge of the Dagger, the Khanda, given to us by Guru Gobind Singh. Only the chosen few get the honor of laying down their lives for the nation. We are proud of this honor.

    In no way is it just to accuse us of an unheroic act in attacking an unarmed man. We wish to remind you that by misusing your vast resources you have tried your utmost to humiliate us as a nation. In every field you have tried to make us helpless. You are empowered with your massive armed force and equipped with the most advanced military arsenal of our times. You have made us inadequate to fight you in the open battlefield. In the present situation there is no other alternative with us except to use the kind of method that we employed on General Vaidya to punish the tyrants for their evil deeds. When you are already waging an undeclared war on our nation, guerilla attacks are not our pleasure but an historical compulsion. Please do not forget this fact of history that during the 18th century when robbers like Abdalis and Nadarshah were driving your daughters to Kabul like enroped flocks of animals, our brave Sikh brethren from their jungle and desert hideouts fiercely attacked the robbers. Even the frightened enemies had to praise our courage. We are fired with a generous humanism. Our grip extends to the entire life with its beat and vibration.

    In the last one decade there have been very few “actual” encounters between our soldiers and your forces. But wherever those have occurred, the evidence in them of our valor and radiant heroism, we are sure, is preserved in your confidential files. A fragment of that fact once in a while slips through your newspapers as well. Our Khalsa vigor is an aspect of our spiritual heritage. In such moments of fight, spirituality radiates through the flasher of our swords.

    Oh. President representing Brahmanism Hear the words of Kazi Noor Mohammad, an eye witness during the seventh invasion (1764 AD) of Ahmad Shah Abdali: “It looks as if guns were invented by these Sikhs and not by Likman. Although many possess guns yet none understands them more than the Sikhs. My observation will be confirmed by the 30 thousand brave soldiers who fought against them.”

    When we attacked General Vaidya, apart from his own arms, he had with him a well equipped body guard. Our attack was part of the same battlefield strategy that was once used by our hero-martyrs Madan Lal Dhingra, Bhagat Singh, Kartar Singh Sarabha, and even today it is used by revolutionaries the world over, and considered right.

    Through you we also wish to transmit this message that we harbor no enmity towards the great people and land of India. We are not touched even a bit by hatred for the people of India. Not only to embrace our people, we are restless to embrace the whole of the earth and the sky. We intoxicatedly remember the entire cosmos and worship the life that vibrates in it.

    The Khalsa is inseparably and lovingly related to the people of India: the millions of Dalits, the workers who earn their living through honest labor, the Muslims and other minorities, and all those homeless and destitute who have remained oppressed and exploited by Brahmanism for centuries. They are all our kith and kin. Our Master Rider of the blue horse (Guru Gobind Singh) recognized them much earlier. All those termed by the proud Brahmin the lowly, scavengers, shoemakers, mean-professioned, became the beloved sons of our Tenth Father. They rose to Generalships in the army of the Khalsa. Thrones and honors kissed them. Without fantasizing, we are declaring in the midst of history that our gurus loved the meta-poetry (bani) of those divine souls drenched with a passion for the Dalit brotherhood. The gurus bestowed the highest honors on them and included their (bani) along with their own in the Guru Granth Sahib. The spirit of the Dalits and their pain are aspects of our own anguish. We are touched by the warmth of their door. There is hardly any Agro Industry in the Punjab. Heavy industry is totally non-existent. We want to keep our capital safe for our development, but you are exploiting us as if we are your colony.

    You have not spared an effort to hurt our culture. By damaging our heritage you want to keep us in a miserable psychological state so that we may feel embarrassed over our language, culture and proud history. Your strategy is to destroy us from “within” and reduce us to your slaves so that you may keep on sucking our blood without any protests.

    You want us to adopt your rootless culture of razzle dazzle as our way of life. You want to uproot our culture and take away our source of life. You think our history is not worthy of any significance.

    But now we keep track of your every step. Still a vital blood flows in our veins. We will structure our way of life according to our originality and history. Every one knows that without getting political power it is not possible for any nation to guard its culture. It is not possible for us to keep our cultural and national identity intact without establishing a Sovereign Khalistan. We are offering our heads for achieving our goal; Our True Guru has granted a sovereign State to us, we have won his blessing by offering our heads.

    Now we beg to address our Khalsa Panth. The way of the Khalsa is very trying. It is sharper than the edge of a Dagger, the Khanda, and subtler than a strand of hair. The Khalsa panth at all cost has to preserve the original and pure form of its great struggle. The struggle is a diving journey inspired by a transcendental consciousness. During these moments of struggle, the Khalsa is to remain continuously absorbed into the Guru Granth Sahib, no matter how many cruelties are inflicted and provocation is given, the Khalsa has to keep its cool and discipline in the horrible and barbaric situations. The Khalsa has to preserve its traditions established by the valiant Sikhs through martyrdom.

    In comparison with the violence of the enemy, the violence of the Khalsa abounds in divine qualities and spiritual blessings. The Khalsa has to give such a divine form and beauty to its struggle that it may even burden the conscience of the enemy with the realization of its own sin. Such a moral miracle will be possible only if the concentration on the guru of the Khalsa and rhythm of the Guru Granth Sahib remain fully connected and intact. The Guru Granth Sahib is the main source of our life-stream and spiritual power. It is also the chief spring of our inspiration to advance towards the destination of Khalistan.

    If concentration on the guru and the internal rhythm of the Guru Granth Sahib are the main lifestream of the Khalsa, then it is also necessary to say a few words to the militants who are intensely in love with the stream. In this terrible crisis of history, the concentration on the guru and the rhythm of the Guru Granth Sahib are the only armed brigades. The are the army of the Timeless Man, and they are the guardians of the pure consciousness of the Khalsa. We too had the honor of having been the humble parts of these forces.

    It is true that we are confronting a vast material State that has at its command all the worldly resources, horrifying scientific inventions, a capacity to attack and disable the intellect and praxis. The state can also weaken us through penetration and strategies of its intelligence. It can also develop shocking plans and more than everything else it can assemble huge armies. But so what? The Khalsa can send shivers into the spine of the enemy and shake its State with its spiritual might. It is not the bodies alone that fight. It was only a miracle of the Khalsa spiritual strength that even with its tiny number the Khalsa subdued the 10 lakh army of the Mughals at the Castle of Chamkaur.

    During the last decade we have overwhelmed this State of Brahmanical prejudices with martyrdom. We have been hailed in all corners. Now the matter is not restricted to the possible creation of Khalistan alone. Several oppressed nations of India have come out in the open to fight for their freedom. The Dalit brothers, specially are liberating themselves from the destructive influence of Brahmanism. The so-called hue and cry made for “unity and integrity” does not touch them any more. They have well understood the cunning of Brahmanical rulers veiled behind this hue and cry. Although these are magnificent accomplishments of our movement still we are not free from big mistakes and inadequacies.

    Sometimes, during our struggle we do commit something that is neither morally unique nor pious. Although we are marching towards our goal of achieving Khalistan with determination yet still we have not fully learnt how to go through this difficult terrain. The understanding and experience of our struggle are still diluted and surfacial. We have still to develop a large vision that crosses decades and centuries.

    We still keep doing something that gives our enemy an opportunity to question our proud and glorious history. Several times our arms have wrecked the joys, blossom and aspirations of those who had never directly hurt our movement.

    It appears sometimes as if we were trying to strike terror among the people although our commitment to the ninth Guru is nether to terrify nor to get terrified.

    Oh valiant brethren! Why are not our actions and deeds firing many colors and proliferating unusual effects of life? Why to give the people an excuse that a wide gap has appeared between our mind, word and action. When we sin we become drunk with victory of fault and when we lose we do not investigate its reasons. As a result a chain of losses begins. In such a situation we do not urge to re-integrate ourselves with the transcendental consciousness of the Khalsa, nor do we seek the blessing of the guru’s abode.

    We are becoming martyrs, going to jails, bearing every attack of the enemy, but still in our basic thought, the gratitude to the Lord, patience and commitment have not fully penetrated. Sometimes, the glory of the material status, its power and shine captivate us, as a result we fall prey to material values and miracles. During such moments we do not passionately pray before the Guru Granth Sahib to keep our unique character by heroism and spirituality higher and untouched by narrow ends.

    Several times we suffer from indecision. To free ourselves from this state instead of getting close to the guru we rather choose distance. We are forgetting that during disagreement among us, the resolution of the entire Khalsa adopted at the Akal Takhat can cement and guide us. Oh Brave brethren drenched with the divine love of the sixth guru, Hargobind Sahib! Why don’t you flock towards the Akal Takhat for guidance? Our guru spreading his arms awaits us.

    At times, our baseless suspicions divide us into groups. We then patronize our group, and to protect it we unnecessarily accuse the other groups of crossing all limits. Our sword proudly falls on their necks. The militants of the Khalsa Panth have to meet this serious challenge of the moment with determination and love, with a prayer for the enhancement of wisdom and humility of the mind. Will you follow this path our brethren after we are gone?

    Oh militant comrades of the procession of those walking with their heads on the palms for sacrifice! You carry on your shoulders the historic responsibility of recognizing the mail lifestream and original form of the Khalsa and also the responsibility of identifying the deadly current of ignorance and temptation. This current, to obtain power, has fallen to act on Brahmanical practices. Please understand the narrow motives concealed behind this current that on surface appears to be proSikh. Wage a war against it. Its divisive tendencies are to be strongly resisted. The people associated with this current have lost their faith in the higher struggle. They have been tempted by the Brahmanical reflexes and its allied power hierarchies. They have begun to like evanescent colors. Their actions do not reflect the message of Guru Nanak’s transcendental journey: Nor do they flash any divine experience. Their state mirrors a schism between the mind and word. Declare that these people are false and they have disowned our panth. If they want to be owned by the Khalsa and they feel that there is still in them a secret of truth enunciated by Guru Nanak let them advance straight towards Khalistan otherwise they will be thrown into the dustpan of history.

    Respected President Ji! After these few words with our nation we again address you. When we bid farewell to the world it will be a strange meeting of numerous contradictions. If we look at the world insightfully, the while world is in turmoil, a powerful turmoil. With an alien eye it may look to be a destructive development. It feels as if human peace and action were going through acute disturbance, but the people with intuition can see all this from a difference angle altogether.

    The humankind’s aspiration for freedom cannot be controlled in any system. Any effort to destroy this aspiration gets selfdefeated in history. We are witnessing the same happening in our times also.

    The same passion for freedom burning like a flame in the depths of humankind gave birth to the great French Revolution. And then in the beginning of this century, we are watching the tumbling of the Tsarist regime that had become a symbol of terror and tyranny.

    But whatever systems have been built up on the ruins of Tsarism, have not succeeded in fully preserving and understanding the rush and aspiration of human freedom. All these massive artifices are showing cracks. What an irony of our times that the same people who had raised our ancestors’ flag of freedom became the murderers of freedom.

    We are saying this with deep sorrow that the same lands where lakhs of people laid down their lives fighting the Nazis, toda are providing shelter to the murderers of the Sikhs. Wee mean the country of the great Tolstoy and Lenin, the Soviet Union and its East European allies, where the killers of hundreds of Sikh youth like Buta and Rebiero are taking shelter under the pretext of holding diplomatic responsibilities. But at the same time fresh winds of freedom blowing in these countries give us a hope that these countries will not remain safe shelters for these murderers of mankind. To us that time is not distant when the people of these countries will hand over these criminals to us so that the can be given their due in the court of the Khalsa.

    The dark storm of oppression that is blowing over the Khalsa and the fire of tyranny that is burning it, must have touched at least a little, the soul of Lincoln, Emerson, Rouseau, Voltaire and Shakespeare because the people fighting for their freedom and sovereignty have the same blood flowing in their veins. But permit us to say that among the people of these great men’s lands the urge to push their tradition is dying. Their spiritual values are drying up, they are unable to see the new sun shining in the land of Khalistan whose rays will also radiate the universe. We are hoping that they will accept the reality of Khalistan. We appeal to the United Nations to recognize the face of Khalistan so that the Khalsa nation can make historic contribution to the international peace and security according to the UN Charter, and may also help in building up their relations of tolerance and goodwill among India and its neighbors.

    Honorable President Ji! We are going to look into the eyes of death because we believe that the flag of life’s glory flies even in the face of death. Not only us, but our entire nation has taken birth from the art of keeping its head on its palm. The guns of evil will never frighten us.

    In this era of betrayals we are going to meet our beloved in full faith and wholesomely. Our martyrdom will radiate only integration. We are feeling that martyrdom is a transcendence of all fears, greeds and obscene physical desires. The consciousness of the Khalsa is the most pure and luminous during the moments of martyrdom.

    We have chosen the path of martyrdom so that the ever fresh face of the Khalsa and its unique glory can come into its own once again, and enlighten the whole world. In their eternal joy and grace the Gurus blessed us with a spark of their love. With that spark we are on full blossom. Our love for freedom has taken us to the state of cosmic equilibrium sahaja.

    We have met our True Guru. The fairies of the eternal symphony have arrived to congratulate us with all their families at this momentous hour of meeting.

    Martyrdom has a unique relish of its own. How wonderful is it beyond the material and ineffable emotions!

    Please tell our nation not to be sorrowful. The sweet remembrance of, Guru Gobind Singh flows like a river in us. Please tell them that the stream of love of the Tenth Guru has already gushed forth in us. We are going towards the altar in higher peace and divine poise. We are riding a unique boat that the currents are unable to sink.

    The maker has put together all the wood perfectly, O Nanak my Lord will not let even lakhs of sea currents sink the boat.

    The Khalsa has upheld the belief that whenever death comes, accept it with joy. For this reason please tell all those warriors of the world bringing with the fire of freedom not to let go-mellow the challenge thrown by us. Let their bursting bullets become a lament on our death.

    The rope of gallows is dear to us like the embrace our Lover but if we are condemned to be the prisoners of war, we will wish bullets to kiss the truth lurking in our breasts so that the sacred ground of Khalistan becomes more fertile with our warm blood. Long Live Khalistan!!!! We are restless to drink the pint of martyrdom of Khalistan. – Harjinder Singh- Sukhdev Singh Enclosure: Atrocities perpetrated on the Sikhs:

    Dear Rastrapati ji,

    We are giving below the methods of torture, humiliation and atrocities used by your state against the Sikhs. These have been mentioned by the humanitarian organizations and individuals who hold prestige in their respective fields. These organizations and individuals are not seen directly or emotionally connected with our movement. They have been forced to write about the extreme violations of human rights of our people. We wish you to know and witness the continuous repression and atrocities perpetrated against the Sikhs by your army, paramilitary forces and the police. We are not presenting all this to you to win your sympathy, nor do we wish you repent by taking pity on us. In fact by situating you in this picture we want to have the verdict of the people of the world over the extent you have violated the UNO’s Declaration on Human Rights, the Geneva Convention, and many other international treaties. We are mentioning below the violations and atrocities:

    – To interrogate the Sikhs, a round log of wood is placed on their legs, and after putting heavy weight on the log it is rotated on the legs.

    –Chillie powder is sprinkled in the eyes and sex organs of the Sikhs.

    – Sikhs are hung upside down from the ceilings till they became unconscious.

    – The body joints are battered.

    – Electric shocks are administered to the genitals making most of the youth impotent

    Sikh women, during interrogation, are hurt in their sex organs. Filthy abuse is showered on them.

    – Violence is inflicted on the parents in presence of their sons and daughters and vice-versa.

    – Brothers are forced to beat sisters and vice versa. violence is inflicted on adult girls after stripping them naked and their sex organs are damaged. They are sexually assaulted, pregnancies are terminated of the expectant females

    – Crotchets are pulled apart

    – The victims of inhuman violence are made to sit naked in winter, and under the sun in summer, kept sleepless for days in solitary cells.

    – Sikhs are subjected to severe beatings and filthy abuse in the presence of their village folks.

    – Dead bodies of Sikhs killed in fake encounters are not handed over to their parents to conceal marks of excessive violence.

    – The state manipulates tailored post mortem reports from the doctors, and burns the dead bodies of the Sikhs after falsely declaring them unclaimed.

    – All sorts of excesses are made on the parents of underground Sikh youths.

    – Indiscriminant atrocities are committed on the parents of the underground youth of the area where some militant action takes place.

    – Atrocities are committed without caring for one’s age, health life or death. If some one luckily survives such brutal excesses, it is well and good But if one dies while under “interrogation”, then such a dead body is taken out, pierced with some bullets, and a news item is sent that a dreaded terrorist has been shot dead in an encounter.

    – Houses of underground Sikh youths are demolished, their belongings are looted, crops destroyed, their tube well motors are taken away, and they are prevented from sowing crops.

    -Even animals of the families of underground Sikh youth are subjected to police anger. After summoning the families to the police station, villagers are told not to take care of the animals of the families of the underground youth. Generally the animals starve to death.

    -False cases were registered against innocent Sikh youths, later they were let off by accepting bribes.

    Reporters giving true reports are arrested, an undeclared censorship is imposed on them to stop them from exposing police atrocities.

    – Peaceful protests by the Human rights organizations are prohibited.

    – Press is used to launch vicious and false propaganda against the Sikhs.

    – Hardened criminals are inducted into Sikh movement to help in arresting the Sikh revolutionaries and sabotage the movement. Such criminals are inducted to tarnish the fair name of the Sikh revolutionaries are now called the “Black Cats” in the Punjab. Under SSP Izhar Alam, such criminal gangs were named the “Alam Sena.” Besides, such police sponsored bands of criminals also operated under the name of Panthic Tiger Force and “Red Brigade.” The director general of the police himself admitted about the “Black Cats” bands. In his interview to the India Today on Sept. 15, 188, KPS Gill had announced without an iota of shame that the security forces in Punjab cannot do anything without the help of secret bands (Black Cats).

    – Thousands of innocent pilgrims, children, females, aged people, who got encircled in the Golden Temple during Operation Bluestar were made to die through starvation and thirst. The whole of Punjab was converted into a vast jail by clamping curfew on the entire area. The army bulletin branded all Amritdhari Sikhs as terrorists.

    – Indian army desecrated the Gurdwaras and committed such atrocities on the Sikhs that even the soul of Ahmed Shah Abdali might have felt ashamed of.

    – The targets of army guns were none else but religious persons, devotees, pilgrims, ladies, old people, children or some militants whom the indian government deemed as terrorists.

    -No neutral observer was allowed to take stock of the situation.

    -The injured during the attack on the Golden Temple were subjected to extreme partiality. Whereas every assistance and facility was made available to the injured army personnel, there was no such provision for the wounded belonging to the other side.

    -The number of prisoners taken was rather small. There is ample scope for doubt that the Indian army had thought it better to eliminate the thousands of peopleseized in the Golden Temple instead of taking them prisoners or having to provide them with medical assistance.

    No need was felt to perform religious rites for the dead pilgrims and devotees.

    – Before consigning the dead bodies to flames, no effort was made to identify them. No relatives were informed.

    – No dead bodies were handed over to the next of kin. In such a situation only the dead or those wishing to be dead could be present at the last rites.

    – All dead bodies were placed in heaps and then consigned to flames. IT was never insured that among the dead there could also be some Muslim devotees. To cremate is against the tenets of Islam.

    – No need was felt to give a list of the dead to the Red Cross or any other International Agency.

    Despite such atrocities, no commission was appointed to go into this dark episode. Even the Britishers, the foreign rulers, had cared to appoint the Hunter commission to inquire into the Jallianwalla Massacre which was of a much less magnitude on the other hand. The Indian government, on the other hand, took all steps to hide the excesses of the army.

    The hearing began in the case of General Vaidiya’s murder. On Aug. 10th, 1985, Harjinder Singh “Jinda” and Sukhdev Singh “Sukha”, gunned down General Vadiaya after his retirement from the Indian army. General Vadiya was the Chief of the Indian Army who ordered the attack on the holiest of the holy shrines at Amritsar and elsewhere in Punjab during 1984 operations. On Oct. 9, 1992, Sukhdev Singh “Sukha” and Harjinder Singh “Jinda” were hanged until death in Puna Jail.

  11. Sikh martyres Jinda & Sukha wrote a letter to President giving account of atrocities by police and army, justified their reason to raise weapon

    I would love to give introduction and some information of two Sikh martyrs who kissed the rope before execution like Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev .

    Before this on hearing the verdict of execution, they distributed sweet (Barfi). These two brave youths avenged the attack on Golden temple in Operation Blue star and atrocities by Indian army by killing the former Lt. General Aru Sridhar Vaidya who was commanding in chief of Indian army and supervised the invasion. These two braves also shot dead Lalit Makan, Arjun Das and Dharamdas shastri for thei alleged role in killing of innocent Sikhs in November 1984. Both of them were hanged on 9th Oct. 1992 soon after Shankar Dayal Sharma was sworn in President of India.

    It is always to keep in mind that these two braves were hanged to appease the President as his daughter and son-in-law Lalit Makan were gunned down in his house at Rajauri Garden, west Delhi for his alleged role in Sikh genocide 1984.

    jinda-sukhaThe revenge by Bhai Harjinder Singh Jinda and Sukhdev Singh Sukha.

    They wrote a letter to President giving account of atrocities by police and army and justified their reason to raise weapon as the Sikhs could never get justice in India and they were compelled to take the law in their hand too punish the guilty responsible for killings of innocents.

    We, hereby salute their valor and high spirit which they stood guard and followed the true path of martyrdom for the sake of religion and to get avenge from the tyrants. The guru has directed to Sikhs when all the methods to get justice fails then its advisable to raise the weapon and punish the guilty. They walked on the right path and sacrificed their lives for our to-day.

    The founder of Sikh religion, the first guru—Guru Nanak Dev ji said….TRUTH IS HIGHER BUT HIGHER STILL IS TRUTHFUL LIVING.

    And the duo set an example of truthfulness in their life noy only by punishing the culprits but also by proving in Court the distinct identity and importance of Sikh tenets, its distinct identity in life of a Sikhs. The fearless fighters sacrificed but not pleaded mercy from Indian govt. but instead wrote a letter to president. The copy of letter is attached in the end

  12. Akal Takhat stormed

    On this night in 1984, the Golden Temple in Amritsar was stormed by Indian army troops. They had been summoned by Indira Gandhi to disarm and dislodge Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale—head of the Damdami Taksaal, a prominent insurgent voice in the orthodox Sikh community and a former ally of the Congress—who was operating from and residing in the Darbar Sahib Complex. While the intent of Operation Bluestar, as this was termed, was to clear Bhindranwale’s armed insurgents from the premises of the Golden Temple, the operation took a devastating turn. In this excerpt from ‘The Shattered Dome,’ from our May 2014 issue, Hartosh Singh Bal reports on the violent events that transpired that night.

    According to the memoir of PC Alexander, principal secretary to the Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi made up her mind to summon the army on 25 May, relying on the reassurances of General AS Vaidya, chief of the army staff. Vaidya explained that he would move troops into different locations in Punjab simultaneously, surrounding gurdwaras occupied by extremists and cutting off their supplies and movement. A similar siege would be mounted around the Golden Temple, with a large number of troops. Alexander writes that Gandhi “repeatedly told the general that in any operation no damage should be done to the temple buildings and particularly to the Harmandir Sahib.” Vaidya assured her that there would be “a maximum show of force, but a minimum use of it.”

    Vaidya met with Gandhi again on 29 May, and suggested some changes in the plan. They would ensure that the temple would not be damaged—but they would need to enter it. This proposal was the result of Vaidya’s meeting with Lieutenant General K Sundarji, who had direct command of operations. Alexander writes that Vaidya convinced Gandhi that he had weighed the pros and cons of the plan with his senior colleagues; they had all agreed that a siege would prolong the operation and destabilise the surrounding countryside.

    “Vaidya spoke with such confidence and calmness that the new plan he was proposing appeared to be the only option open to the Army,” Alexander writes. “I can definitely state on the basis of the clear knowledge of Indira Gandhi’s thinking at that time that she agreed to the revision of the earlier plan at the eleventh hour strictly on the assurance given to her that the whole operation would be completed swiftly and without any damage to the buildings within the Golden temple complex.”

    A week later, on the night of 5 June, Lieutenant Colonel Israr Rahim Khan commanded the first batch of troops that stormed the Darbar Sahib complex.

    Khan reported directly to Major General Kuldip Singh “Bulbul” Brar, who was in overall command of the operation and in touch with Sundarji. (The major general, like Bhindranwale, was a Brar Jatt, and the two men came from villages close to each other’s, but there the similarities between them ended. Brar came from a distinguished military family, and the gulf of class and education between him and Bhindranwale was deep; he had little time for the sort of orthodoxy Bhindranwale espoused.)
    (Here Khan calles this Sikh preacher Sant jarnail Singhh Bhindranwala who was master in religious studies if not inworldly education. Who so ever came to interview him or visited to know his views always got so impressed that he became his follower like Swami Subramaniyam Farooq Abdullah and so on).

    When I met him in his home, Khan, who retired as a brigadier, at first said he had little to add to Brar’s account of the operation, published in his 1993 book Operation Bluestar—The True Story. I said I wanted to hear a view from the ground, from a soldier who was actually part of the operation.

    In spite of his greying hair, it was easy to see in Khan the dashing soldier Brar had sent into the complex. Once he began to speak, it was evident he remembered the action as though it had taken place yesterday. “From our debussing area, near Jallianwalla Bagh”—the famous park is a short distance away from the Darbar Sahib—“we were to approach the Darshan Deori, the main entrance. We were in the open, and they”—Bhindranwale’s men—“were all secure, with their weapon emplacements in place. There was not an inch of ground in the gully outside the Darshan Deori that was not covered by the firing.”
    (In fact Darshani Deori is known the gates from where devotees enter the main sanctum sanctorum Darbar sahib in middle of thhe sacred pond. this place whichh is referred by Col. israr Khan is known as Ghantaghar).

    Shahbeg Singh’s plan of defence for the Darbar Sahib was so effective that, three decades later, Khan recalled it with something like admiration. The complex was guarded by an outer ring of emplacements positioned on the vantage points of its high buildings—the Hotel Temple View on one side, and the gumbads, or domes, on the other—and an inner ring on the parikrama, within the temple itself. At the Darshan Deori, Khan and his men descended the stairs into the complex unaware of loopholes in the walls that had been turned, he said, into “weapon pits.”

    “My boys were climbing down the stairs in the darkness, because the electricity was cut. It was totally dark, and we were wondering where this fire was coming from. It takes a little time to think. It was coming from under the stairs.” The bullets hit Khan’s soldiers below the knee. “The boys,” he said, “fell tumbling down.”

    The memory made Khan pause. “In which war have we suffered such heavy casualties?” he asked. “From my battalion, in the first hour—from 10.30 to 11.30 at night—we had already lost nineteen. In the ’71 war, in Shakargarh sector, I tell you, Hartosh, in the whole ten to fifteen days, my battalion, the 10 Guards, lost four men. What a gruesome battle it was in the Golden Temple.”

    The army was hemmed in at close quarters, in a heavily built-up area—which meant, Khan said, that there was no way collateral damage could be avoided. “I read somewhere that Mrs Gandhi was told there would be no casualties. No person in the right frame of mind would give such an assurance to the PM.”

    If there were any expectations that the security forces would meet no resistance, they were rendered utterly false. “They knew,” Khan said. “How can you build brick and mortar key emplacements overnight? It was beautifully planned. You could not close up anywhere near the temple without being hit by a bullet.”

    “The commandos were grouped with me. A company each of the SFF”—the R&AW unit, the Special Frontier Force —“and 1 Para Commando was grouped with 10 Guards. We were to give them safe passage through the parikrama, until the periphery of the Akal Takht, and they were meant to capture Bhindranwale from the Akal Takht. So I grouped them, with my leading company going ahead. We entered first and made place for them to enter. We gave them a safe corridor through the parikrama till the end. There were twelve rooms in a row; we kept clearing, room by room by room.” Every room was manned.

    (As per the statements given by eye witnesses I find Israr Khan giving an account of operation on night of 5th June Before that army had taken over whole complex other then Akal Takhat.
    Khan also admits that he cleared the room by room which were all manned It was only massacre of stranded pilgrims who had taken shelter in those rooms to save their lives It was duty of army to save their lives but killer Indian army was on mission to suppress Sikh nation so it brutally murdered all the unarmed but innocent pilgrims inside those rooms and in the complex).

    By 1 am, Khan says, his company had captured the northern wing of the parikrama and opened it up to the special forces, but they were unable to make headway. “The moment they would close up near the Akal Takht they would come under heavy fire. They were very badly mauled. So they would fall back on the parikrama, and get in touch with Bulbul to tell him that they had lost so many men.”

    “I won’t blame them professionally. Their men were dying, and all the fire was coming at them. But why some other methods were not adopted, or what they had rehearsed, is not known to me.”

    At two o’clock in the morning, Brar called. “Bulbul told me on the set: ‘Israr, have a Carl Gustav’”—an anti-tank missile—“‘fired at the dome of the Akal Takht and see what effect it has.’ I set up the Carl Gustav myself; I couldn’t take anyone else’s report for granted. From the first floor, which we had captured, I fired a Carl Gustav and—Hartosh, can you believe it, what a beautiful building it was, that dome was so strong—it just ricocheted like a .303 bullet being fired into that wall. Even that leaves a one-inch dent; but nothing was visible on that dome.” Khan radioed back to tell Brar that the missile had had no effect.

    “Then I don’t know what transpired between the special forces and Bulbul, that they found no other way. They were scared that after sunrise, all of Punjab would surround the Golden Temple. So whatever had to be achieved, had to be achieved before dawn. They decided on rolling down three tanks inside, and eventually used the main gun of the tank. It pierced through the dome, and there were gaping holes. That was a horrific sight. My own assessment now is that if the main gun of the tank had not been used, perhaps the Sikh psyche wouldn’t have been hurt so much.”

    Almost every commitment that Vaidya made to the prime minister went unkept. The operation took at least a full night; it resulted in the decimation of the Akal Takht; and the casualties far outstripped any estimate Gandhi had been given. There are still no credible explanations for why no intelligence on the situation was available or forthcoming to the army. Neither are there answers for why the army did not ask for more time to plan, especially as an operation at the Darbar Sahib had been under consideration since February.
    (Either Khan hiding the facts or tryig to give a cover by speaking false on preparation time army was given to attack. Genral SK Sinha disclosed in his book “Last resorts” that army was giving special training to its soldiers in Chakrata near Dehra Dun 18 months prior to the invasion on Darbar sahib than how much more time it wanted?

    It’s the same army which was ordered to prepare and then air dropped in just six hours to Sri Lanka in 1985?)

    In 1984, the day marking the martyrdom of Guru Arjan fell on 3 June, two days before Operation Bluestar began. The choice to begin hostilities on 5 June was highly problematic, because a curfew had been imposed around the complex days before the attack, effectively trapping a large number of pilgrims, who had nothing to do with the militants, inside the temple.
    (Why the curfew was imposed and trapped pilgrims were not permitted to come out of Darbar Sahib, the intention of army is clearly mentioned here. It trapped them in large numbers so that in operation army may use them as a cover to move to capture Akal Takhat these trapped pilgrims were thus killed in cross firing in periphery other then killed by granade attack in rooms where they had taken the shelter).

    (This strategy of army is well explained in the bottom at “Valor of Sikh youths and defeat of indian army” and cleared why the army chose auspicious day of martyrdom day of fifth guru Aran dev ‘s martyrdom day for attack).

    Indira Gandhi had given such orders to General Vaidya, the Commanding officer in chief of Indian army as;

    “I don’t give a damn if the Golden Temple and whole of Amritsar are destroyed, I want Bhindranwale dead.” (Indira Gandhi, Indian Prime Minister, communicating with Gen. Vaidya during “Operation Blue Star”)

    Over the years, evidence has emerged of crimes committed within the premises by security forces. Brigadier Onkar Goraya’s 2013 book, Operation Bluestar and After, An Eyewitness Account, provides, for the first time, some clarity on the number of pilgrims inside the complex during the operation. Goraya, the head of the Admin branch of the 15th Infantry division posted in Punjab, was tasked with “lifting civilian casualties, disposal of the dead and evacuation of the wounded to the hospitals, apprehending the militants, guarding them in make-shift jails in the Cantonment, and arranging for their logistics.” He placed the casualties, based on the number of bodies disposed, at seven hundred, and stated that another 2,200 persons were rounded up and interned.

    (Here Goraya also lies, the exact number may not be possible to reveal but approximate and very near to actual is obtained. There were 10,000 innocent pilgrims killed inside the Darbar sahib periphery other than those killed in surrounding buildings as these figure was taken from shoe store (Joda Ghar) where every devotee deposit his/her shoes before entering the sacred sanctorum. There were 10.000 unclaimed shoes inside this joda ghar whose claimanants never returned to claim. Nearly 15,000 innocent pilgrims were killed in Darbar Sahib complex only).

    Even by the most exaggerated count, Bhindranwale’s men numbered no more than 250. Were they all counted among the dead, with another hundred from other militant organisations included for good measure, it would mean that, even by the most conservative estimate, the operation resulted in the deaths of over 350 people who had nothing at all to do with Bhindranwale. Considering that many people slipped out of the complex through the numerous doors leading to alleyways surrounding it, it is safe to say the number of people inside was far higher than the three thousand or so accounted for by the numbers of those dead, injured or captured.

    The army has consistently maintained that pilgrims inside the complex were given ample opportunity to leave. But Goraya makes it clear that most never heard the army’s requests to surrender and come out. A day before the operation began, he found a district administration van outside the complex broadcasting announcements in Punjabi: “All those who are stranded inside the Darbar Sahib complex are requested to come out with their hands raised above their head. They will not be fired at.” The van was parked eighty yards from the main entrance. “The devotees and pilgrims, for whose benefit the announcements were being made, were well beyond its reach,” Goraya writes.

    The scene within the complex after the operation was gruesome. Goraya writes of the stench of rotting bodies in the June heat: the task of disposing of them was so onerous that the municipal workers who eventually cleared them away did so only because they were permitted to strip the bodies of their belongings. The bodies of Bhindranwale and Shahbeg Singh were recovered from the basement of the Akal Takht on the morning of 7 June, almost two days after the operation began. Bhindranwale’s body was identified by his brother and quickly cremated in the presence of a few officers and jawans.

    Goraya’s book confirms an allegation of long standing: that security forces shot at least a few men in cold blood. Evidence has already been published of at least one execution: a 2006 book by Harminder Kaur – Blue star over Amritsar – contains the post-mortem report of a young man shot through the chest with his hands tied behind his back. Goraya’s story strengthens the claim that there were multiple killings of this kind. “On 7th June, around mid-day, I saw about 90 detainees sitting on the hot marble floor of the Southern wing of Parikrama,” he writes. “They were naked except for the long underwear and their hands were tied behind their backs.
    (We have eye witness accounts how army personals killed the amritdhari Sikhs wearing all five mandatory signs of Sikh faith in cold blood by tying their hands at their back and shot them in frustration as army suffered very heavy loss. The casualities it had in operation Blue star was much much higher than combined loss of lives it had in all three maor wars fought against China and Pakistan).

    “Most of them appeared to be militants. Though subjugated they retained their defiant spirit. Instead of looking down, some of them dared to look into the eyes of their captors. A second Lieutenant of the unit who had fought these militants the previous night and lost a few comrades, could not stomach such defiance. When he asked them to look down one of them spat at him. The officer lost his cool and shot him in the forehead.”

    (That shows the hate of Sikhs towards invading army which attacked their supreme shrine and killed the innocent, the Sikh youth was certainly fearless as he was sure that he will be killed so he spat in extreme hate and conveyed his message before he was shot.

    Kudos to that fearless Sikh).

    On 23 June, when Indira Gandhi visited the Darbar Sahib for the first time after the operation, Goraya was at the tail end of the group surrounding her as she walked around the parikrama. As she looked at the Akal Takht, Goraya claims, she said to General Sundarji beside her: “I didn’t ask you to do this.”

    Valor of Sikh youths and the defeat of Indian army ;

    The infantry division of Indian army had surrendered before the valiant Sikh youths. The fierce fight which was fought continuously for nearly 72 hrs. had stopped the advance of a mighty and best army in world which had earlier defeated Pakistan and captured its 93000 soldiers, was not able to fight with these handful Sikh youths.

    The distance from Clock tower entrance to Sri Akal Takhat in complex of Darbar sahib is hardly 200 meters. The Army generals were sure to take over the Akal Takhat within half an hour but this largest army which had already covered up whole of Punjab, couldn’t cover this distance of merely 200 meters for 72 hrs, it marked a question on their valor. It had to face such a heavy resistance.

    The Indian army could never think of such stiff resistance, it had not thought the handful Sikh youths who were not properly trained shall stop the mighty Indian army. The Generals of Indian army had forgot that the Sikhs have a charm to get martyrdom since their childhood and they feel proud to offer their heads to their Guru and getting martyred in battlefield.

    The Sikh youths were fighting those who had invaded with a malicious thought to destroy their holiest shrine, to protect the house of lord and to make it’s sanctity, these Sikh youths had one motto only —- to sacrifice for a good cause, and to get martyred, they practically proved in the battlefield the prophetic prononuncement of Guru Gobind Singh ji that “ “Chirian to main baaz tudaun, Gidran to main sher banun, Sawa lakh seek laraun, Tbhai Gobind Singh naam kahaun”, means “ only if I can make sparrows fight against hawks, make lions out of jackals, and make one person fight against 1.25 lakh (one hundred twenty five thousand) enemies—only then I deserve to be called Gobind Singh”.

    These Sikh youths sacrificed their lives to prove these words whereas the soldiers of Indian army were just obeying the orders of their queen Indira.

    The Generals of Indian army had deliberately selected the martyrdom day of fifth Guru of Sikh religion to attack Darbar sahib while making strategy because on such day the Sikhs arrives in large numbers to Gurudwara along with their families. The Indian army could use their large gathering of congregation to achieve their mission of capturing Akal Takhat. It could deliver two benefits:-

    First— by presence of large congregation the army could reach Akal Takhat easily in cover of these innocent Sikhs, if the army opened fire, the chances were of killing of innocent Sikhs from either side, the Sikhs may be from devotees or the followers of Sant Jarnail Singh ji. Indira Gandhi had also issued such orders that whether whole of Amritsar is destroyed but Bhindranwala must not be left alive. Thus, the Indian army had planned to proceed safely towards Sri Akal Tkhat in cover of innocent devotees and then to attack there like the soldiers proceed in battle fields in the cover of buffalows or other animals to save their lives.

    The Generals of Indian army too made the same strategy that their soldiers shall capture Sri Akal Takhat within half an hour by getting safe cover of congregation of devotees there because these generals were sure that the Sikh youths shall never fire on their brothers, sisters or the children in congregation but the brave warriors inside the shrine had got Gurilla training from retired Maj. General Shubeg Singh who was expert in such wars. These brave Sikhs finished the first attack in minutes. All those soldiers who were sent inside at periphery of Darbar sahib were killed by indiscriminate firing.

    The fierce fight to capture Akal Takhat was continued for nearly 72 hrs but when infantry division of Indian army failed to proceed a few meters, than Armored personal carrier vehicles was brought into service to ferry the soldiers safely to Akal Takhat but such an APC vehicle was blown off by a missile.

    And after the Infantry surrendered, the heavy armor and Artillery was brought in, Tanks fired 80 shells on Akal Takhat whereas last reports revealed that only 14 Sikhs were left alive in Akal takhat but the army generals were sweating and had left their patience. they had assured indira to take control of Akal takhat within half an hour and every attempt was made to kill Sant ji as Indira had ordered them. She didn’t want to capture him alive.

    Finally these brave last 14 Sikhs were killed and then only indian army could enetr the building and took over the control. none of these brave Sikh youths was caughht alive or surrendered but they sacrificed their lives to protect sanctum Sanctorum darbar Sahib from invasion and set the example of valor of Sikhs as per their tradition for centuries.

    Hats off to all of them.

  13. Khalsa ji,

    After reading this post, how many of you Sikhs would love to call India your home?

    At least i shall never call so.

    Since 1984, i was searching the chemical used by killing squads sponsored by Govt of India in Delhi and which was provided by then ruling Congress govt. and poured/rubbed on Sikhs caught and then ignited in flames.

    I could never come to know what was it?

    But today while reading eye witnessing account of a US citizens who saw the powder thrown on Sikh youths and burnt them in flames, i better decided to share it with you.

    It took me 31 years but you will come to know its secret in few seconds.

    It was WHITE PHOSPHOROUS (It burns to the bones) it’s use was banned by Geneva convention but then Indian Govt. provided it to it’s Congress sponsoered Hindu goons in Delhi to kill Sikhs in 1984 pogrom in Delhi.

    See in the words of that foreigner who witnessed Sikhs burnt by hindus in Delhi as …..
    “Later I discovered it was ‘white phosphorous’, banned by the Geneva Convention, and still used by the Israeli Army against Palestinians, and in other “hot spots” around the world. It ignites upon contact with a human body. Third-degree burns kill the victim in a most agonizing way”.

    So, now we were in one of those “hot spots.” What a neat, clinical euphemism. My golden retriever gets “hot spots.” People being scalped alive, their limbs hacked, boys and girls raped and beaten and dismembered, this qualified as a “hot spot,” I remember thinking.

    “White phosphorus ‘burns to the bone”
    It causes skin to melt away from the bone and can break down a victim’s jawbone, but white phosphorus – known in Vietnam as Willie Pete – is still used by sections of the world’s military.

    Further problems are caused because the substance can stick to clothing or on the skin and continues to burn unchecked as particles are exposed to air.

    White phosphorus munitions
    Chemical Compound
    White phosphorus is a material made from a common allotrope of the chemical element phosphorus that is used in smoke, tracer, illumination and incendiary munitions.


    In the attached picture you can see the impact of its usage on human body, the charred body of a Sikh youth lying on pavement shows its usage.


    I think the Sikh organizations/SFJ (Sikhs for justice)should file a legal case against India in International Court/UNO on using the banned substance on its citizens in 1984. The truth needs to be known to world.

  14. Historical evidence that 40 Sikhs and 10th Guru fought with one million Mogul army

    Very strange that Muslims unnecessarily criticize on valor of Sikhs, their guru-Guru Gobind Singh who gave Amrit which inherits in the veins of khalsa and inspire them to get martyred in battlefield even this day also.

    Recently I saw a post on Facebook where a Muslim used derogatory words against honor of 10th Master and criticized on his role in battle of Chamkaur Sahib and questions of presence of one million Mogul army in absence of any historical evidence. (Kindly see the evidence below in post). He further questioned that guru was on height and showered the arrows on Moguls and thus moguls couldn’t defeat khalsa.

    My answer to him is in 1999, Pakistan took control of many peaks in Kargil including tiger hill but Indian army repulsed the attack and the enemy who had control on these peaks was killed and Indian army regained its control. Then why could the mighty mogul army in strength of one million was so helpless in front of guru and his 40 brave Sikhs that it couldn’t dare to face them?

    He also criticizes on presence of one million Mogul army at Chamkaur Sahib and suggests to see the wikipedia or google search on battle of Chamkaur sahib.

    To my surprise I once tried to edit wikipedia on this issue but some fake Sikh scholars who have published the books to distort Sikh history like HS Dilgeer had already given a reference from their published books and wikipedia was not ready to edit it.

    Now I have a historical evidence with me. In Zafarnama-a letter written to Aurangzeb by guru Gobind Singh ji in which he mentions this strength in his own words. See as follows;
    ਗੁਰਸਨਹ ਚਿਹ ਕਾਰੇ ਚਿਹਲ ਨਰ ॥ ਕਿ ਦਹ ਲਕ ਬਰਾਯਦ ਬਰੋ ਬੇਖ਼ਬਰ ॥੧੯॥
    ਕਿ ਪੈਮਾਂ ਸ਼ਿਕਨ ਬੇਦਰੰਗ ਆਮਦੰਦ ॥ ਮਿਯਾਂ ਤੇਗ਼ੋ ਤੀਰੋ ਤੁਫ਼ੰਗ ਆਮਦੰਦ ॥੨੦॥
    ਬ ਲਾਚਾਰਗੀ ਦਰਮਿਯਾਂ ਆਮਦਮ ॥ ਬ ਤਦਬੀਰਿ ਤੀਰੋ ਤੁਫ਼ੰਗ ਆਮਦਮ ॥੨੧॥
    ਚੁ ਕਾਰ ਅਜ਼ ਹਮਹ ਹੀਲਤੇ ਦਰ ਗੁਜ਼ਸ਼ਤ ॥ ਹਲਾਲ ਅਸਤ ਬੁਰਦਨ ਬ ਸ਼ਮਸ਼ੀਰ ਦਸਤ ॥੨੨॥
    ——————————(ਜ਼ਫਰਨਾਮਾ )

    Kindly see the second line of this para. It’s clearly written there that ki Dah Lak means ….that das lakh (one million), some historians have wrongly translated it as INFINITIVE.

    Had I vowed even secretly on the book of my faith,
    I would have withdrawn infantry and cavalry from the field. (18)

    And, what could my forty men do (at Chamkaur), when a hundred thousand men, unawares, pounced upon them? (19)

    The oath breakers attacked them, of a sudden, with swords, arrows and guns. (20)

    I had, perforce to join battle with thy hosts,

    And I too fought with the muskets and arrows as best as I could. (21)

    From Zafarnama.

    You can read Guru Gobind Singh jee’s eye witness account of the Battle of Chamkaur in the Zafarnama, which can be downloaded from:

    (Note: Guru jee wrote about the Battle of Chamkaur Sahib on pg. 7)

    But when this letter was addressed and sent to Aurangzeb who was the king and supreme commander of Mogul army, how could there be a wrong number of presence of Mogul army mentioned? He (Aurangzeb) could object on it if it had been written falsely but he was so impressed from valor of Khalsa and the strong will of guru that he wished to have a meeting with guru to sort the issue forever, thus he invited Guru to meet in south (as he was proceeding south at that time). Guruji also proceed to meet him in south but soon he came to know of his sudden demise in Ahmadnagar. Unfortunately both couldn’t meet otherwise a different history would have written in India on that day.

    These Sikhs fought with great valor, knowing well of their end but were so keen to get martyred in front of guru that they defeated Mogul army in every corner and set an unparallel valor in war history that none surrendered but got martyred and didn’t allow the Moguls to proceed even an inch forward from there place.

    Guru jee saw that Nawab Wazir Khan wanted to take hold of the fort of Chamkaur in one attempt. The Nawab surrounded the fort with his armies. At this time the Singhs did a benti (request) to Guru Sahib that since there was no means of escaping the siege, for him to please escape with Sahibzadey. However Guru Sahib told them that there is no difference between the Singhs and the Sahibzadey. “You are all mine! We will be victorious and we will all be free.

    Guru’s two sons got martyrdom in this battlefield but he was not shaken as he never discriminated in his own sons or Khalsa.

    During the night, Bhai Daya Singh jee and Bhai Dharam Singh jee (two of the original Panj Piarey) along with Bhai Maan Singh jee and other singhs remained in the fort of Chamkaur Sahib. There were a total of 10 Singhs left. Now the Guru-roop Panj Piarey (Five Singhs) gave Hukam to Guru Sahib to leave the fort. Guru Sahib did not leave quietly.

    On leaving, Guru Sahib blew his horn and stood on high ground and clapped his hands three times saying “Peeré Hind Rahaavat” (“The “Peer” of India is Leaving”).

    But none dared to stop him.

    And then he left the fortress.

    Note: The mughal army and 22 hilly king’s forces were of 2.5.lacs, 1 lac Ranghars joined them, 2 lacs Pathan or Afghans also joined these forces. In area around Chamkaur Sahib local Gujjars joined Mughals in large nos which made total of 10 lacs.

    The Aurangzeb kept 2 lacs troops under lahore due to fear of invasion of persian empire in earliest part of his rule.1 lac 50,000 troops were always there in Sirhind being the main milatary centre apart from these milatary bases the Mughal were able to mobile troops from Avadh, Agra the elite of troops. At that time Mughal India had Afghan military system.The Mughal system came from Afganistan. Punjab was the big state and was pillar of Mughal empire along with bengal and Avadhh. Apart from Mughala local Pathan tribes and rangars joined numbering 5 lacs.

    The mughal forces that surrounded Guru ji at Anandpur Sahib consisted of forces from lahore under Zabardast Khan around 1.5 lacs as he was ordered by Emperor to collect all forces fro Majha to ATTACK.the hilly Kings under Ajmer Chand has 80,000 troops sirhind had 1 lac troops with 1 lac reserves and most important was the elite troops under Governor of Delhi the turkish musketeers and Most skilled Gunners in world 30,000 same troops were able to win many frontal battles for Mughals in south and in Rajputana. These battles were financed by hilly kings. Governor of Delhi was senior most official of Mughals after Emperor .The real commander in chief was Governor of Delhi who was killed on the first day of fighting in Chamkaur by an arrow of Guru ji. Other backed up forces of Kashmir, Avadh and Kabul but biggest surprise for the Sikhs was the sudden attack by 2 lacs Rangars at the other side of River Sirsa and followed up by 3 lacs Pathans and Gujjars who came volantarary for fighting .The enemy forces may be more than 10 lacs.

    In deccan many times settlements were made and broken .The Punjab was located in main base of empire and Chamkaur saheb was surrounded on three sides up to 35 KM extending up to Kurali while seige was weak from side of Machiwara as certain no of population was loyal to Khalsa and had thick jungle with large moulds .Population is of litle significance in war. The punjab was second largest state after Bengal and Sirhind was commercial capital of asia like the present day Mumbai.

    Firearms were also used some canon balls have been discovered from garhi Karseva these r available in Gurdwara sahib. In parivar vichhora spot mughals and hilly princes attacked from rear and 1 lac Ranghars blocked the path from front in heavy rain accross the sirsa river 2 to 3 lacs afgans armed with Zambuarh camel guns and matchlocks were waiting for Guru ji .

    It was an unequal war at parivar vichora 2 mughal generels were killed by one to one fight with Guru ji one was struck by spear of Guruji another got his head swung 50 feet away by single strike of tegha of Guru ji I was shown the spot by Manager in 2005 .Ranghar chief was killed by Alam Singh NACHNA IT IS BELIEVED THAT ALAM SINGH NACHNA’s WIFE ATTAINED MARTYDOM AT PARIVAR VICHORA AFTER THE SAHEEDI OF BAHI UDAY SINGH JI. She was hit on her head by a canon ball and sprayed with gun shots this young lady was married recently .Alam Singh ji was instructer and weapon trainer of Sahibzadas and his father was the trainer of Guru ji .This family lost 13 members in battle of parivar vichora and Chamkaur saheb.

    This was the valor of khalsa, if you leave a side the valor and martyrdom of these 40 Sikhs, Baba Deep Singh, one of the Sikh commanders who was initiated with Amrit by Guru Gobind Singh ji fought for many hours after he was beheaded near Amritsar fighting Moguls. He fought Moguls and chased them, forced them to evict Amritsar after his beheading and covered a distance of 8-9 kms before he entered in the boundry of old Amritsar city, he recited japuji sahib there and then threw his head from Chattiwind (now Gurudwara Shahidan, Amritsar) to the periphery of Darbar sahib which is nearly one km as crow flight.

    Shahid Baba Deep Singh ji
    Is there any match to his valor in Islam? If yes, give detail.

    In the end, I would like to say these critics specially Muslims who are taught about miracles of their Nabis, Paigambars etc. only should learn to honor the masters of other faiths also.

    It was Guru Nanak first Guru, founder of Sikh religion who went to Mecca and Mecca turned to honor him from his place.

  15. Shiva ji great never ask for help of Sikhs , they were fighting alone with Muslims . So no need your ehsaaaan , tired of listening these old ass stories

  16. You people are thankless. What happened to Kashmiri pandits when they came in shelter of Guru The Bahadur ji.When Abdali sold your daughters in the bazaars of Ggazni then there Sardars helps those hindu ladies.

  17. You people are thankless. What happened to Kashmiri pandits when they came in shelter of Guru The Bahadur ji.When Abdali sold your daughters in the bazaars of Ggazni then there Sardars helps those hindu ladies.

  18. People asking for a ban seem to be unaware of history. They may not like it but Ranjit Singh was more of a Hindu king and flouted many of the Sikh tenets with immunity. He not only observed Hindu (and Muslim festivals); he had multiple wives in the Rajput court fashion of the day. When he lay dying, he sent the Kohinoor not to Harimander Sahib as a donation but to Benaras. Several of his wives committed Sati, a practice condemned by the SGGS. And many may not know it and will cringe to find out that not only did he put under house arrest his biggest supporter, his mother in law, he also personally killed his own mother!
    Hagiographies are easy, facts difficult to digest. Sikhs will need a lot of courage if they want to rescue their faith from hagiographers!

    • Oooo bhai kaha jaaa raha tameez me raho tum sab pagal ho gye kya agar kisi sgpc KO ban krna hoga to unko koi na ruk payega par yaar tum ek fuddu se serial k Liye ek dusre KO gaali ban rahe mat Kara kro sikho izzat krna sukho bhagwan upar dekh tum logo sar pakad beitha jata hoga ye bhai kya bna diya mene aur bta Hindu Hindu krte Hindu ek geographical naam sindhu river k upar rakha real naam hai Wo santan dharam aur me kahi ni likh ek dusre KO gaali do guru gobind ji ne bhot kra sanatan dharm walo k liye sath rehna seekh lo nhi chuuuuuppppp……

  19. Hindus don’t have any history, they are trying to change the history of sikhs. When there were humans with tail, all the humans had tails. If one had tail then everyone should be with tail. They did this to Hanuman only because he was brave but dalit. They are trying to change their mythology into history & others history into mythology. They are burning with jealous.

  20. Yes you would if your HINDU ANIMAL HISTORY was being mocked…… You dogs can bark we will fight for our rights – you a disgusting goon…..showing that you are anti-human…… democracy should mean every one has rights but you believe democracy is only rights for HINDUS = how clever….
