On the eve of the 37th anniversary of the June-1984 holocaust, Sikh24 is sharing an interview with Sardar Bhagwan Singh, one of the survivors of the Indian Army’s invasion of the holiest Sikh shrine Sri Harmandir Sahib.
At the time of the attack, Sardar Bhagwan Singh was a part of a Kar Sewa Jatha of around 40 Singhs, who had come to Sri Darbar Sahib for offering volunteer services. Thirty-five out of the forty attained martyrdom while resisting the Indian government’s armed invasion there.
Sardar Bhagwan Singh was arrested during the operation and faced almost five years of imprisonment at the Jodhpur jail and became active in the pro-freedom movement after getting released along with Shaheed Bhai Harminder Singh Sandhu.
In this interview to be presented in four parts, Sardar Bhagwan Singh has thoroughly explained the pre and post-1984 episode’s circumstances.
