1984 Sikh genocide-Shame on India for killing Sikhs burnt alive by banned chemicle substance WHITE PHOSPHOROUS

October 27, 2016

A new revelation by an eye witness shows that Hindu goons sponsored by Govt of India in 1984 were supplied banned chemical substance (weapon) to kill Sikhs.


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.




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.

LG products in India are sold with low quality material, hardly covers guarantee period

October 19, 2015

Freinds do you buy LG products?

If planing to purchase any product of LG, my sugestion is to change your mind to buy any other product.
The reason is……..
LG products are not life long but hardly covers the guarantee period only, it may be AC or any other product.
These products are made with cheap materials, light weight and incapable to work long time, i can say not durable.
Earlier I purchased window AC, it got defected soon after its guarantee period was over, just after 15 days of expiry. My many friends have complaned me that there ACs gave troubes just after one year and for your kind information, the AC is not used whole year. Its usage is counted from 4 months to 6 months time only.
Yesterday i purchased a washing machine amodel P-9562, 8.5 kgs.
When unpacked, i found it has no moving wheels. I mean only two small moving wheels are provided and it could move empty only and by turning 45 degree horigentally. But if water is filled and you want to move, you can’t move an inch.
It appears to me that LG is not sure whether its products are capable to carry the load, its plastic may not get crack so they do not provide wheels to allow the machine fully loaded.
Then what’s the use of such products with branded name? When called LG customer care, i was given a contact number of its senior officer. She (Pooja Mathur 9811354152) refused to provide any help as i wished to change the model.
The difference in prices are also seen in its show room. I was demanded 1600-17000 for this model in Rohini and Ghaziabad (P 9562) but one dealer at Bhajanpura demanded the genuine price Rs.13800/- with Rs.220/- extra for freight charges to deliver the machine at my home. I purchased it from this dealer without any bargaining.
So be careful, in the name of LG products, you can be looted by both – the LG and its dealers.

Ajmer Singh Randhawa-aspirant candidate for Jathedar Akal Takhat

Since i decided to become a Jathedar of Sri Akal takhat, i am fighting with these thoughts arises within me. Whether am i right or not is not the issue but whether the fight with my thoughts is OK?

That needs to be answered.

No to constitution

Guru Teg Bahadar ji marched from Sri Anandpur sahib to Delhi as Aurangzeb was ruler of India and he was ruling from Red Fort, Delhi.

Guru ji went there and was beheaded, there was no one to question Aurangzeb but whether Aurangzeb is dead?

I don’t think so.

I still see him, he doesn’t haunt me because being a Sikh of Dasam Patshah, i do not get scared.

Salute to Khalistan

Presently Aurangzeb is in Punjab and rules the state from Chandigarh.

Only this change is seen, rest all similarities are almost same.

This time i may have to go to panjab and present before him. I m sure Guru ji will speak inside me and the fate may be the same.
That’s the fate of every figheter Sikh, so I do not bother.

Only difference is that present Aurangzeb is not Mogul and the victims not Hindus but this time only Sikhs.

Auranzeb was re-incarnated in a Sikh family amd avenges with Sikhs as the animosity of previous life is not forgotten, he laughs out loudly sitting under cover of tight security in his secretariat on removal of turbans and arrests of Sikhs.

Sikh youths face all atrocities, may be prisoned for minor offences or for the offences they never made but not released for many years.

Some unfortunates are compelled to pass their rest of life behind bars even after their punishemnt awarded from any court of law is over.

No consideration at any level, no parole, no treatment or no religious freedom.

Such is the fate of Sikh nation that Paapi reincarnated and continue to do paap again without any fear of almighty.

ਖਾਲਸਾ ਜੀ,
ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਿਹ!

ਅੱਜ ਬੜੀ ਖੁਸ਼ੀ ਦਾ ਦਿਹਾੜਾ ਹੈ ਜਦ ਵੀਰ ਸੁਖਪ੍ਰੀਤ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ ਉਧੋਕੇ ਜੀ ਨੇ ਮੇਰੀ ਜਥੇਦਾਰੀ ਨੂੰ ਆਪਣਾ ਹੁੰਗਾਰਾ ਦਿੱਤਾ ਹੈ !

ਜਦੋਂ ਵੀਰ ਸੁਖਪ੍ਰੀਤ ਸਿੰਘ ਉਧੋਕੇ ਜਿਹੇ ਸੂਝਵਾਨ ਵਿਦਵਾਨ ਮੈਨੂ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਕਾਲ ਤਖ਼ਤ ਦਾ ਜਥੇਦਾਰ ਥਾਪੇ ਜਾਣ ਦੀ ਹਮਾਯਤ (ਸਪੋਰਟ) ਦੇ ਦੇਣ ਤਾਂ ਮੈਂ ਸਮਝਦਾ ਹਾਂ ਕਿ ਮੈਂ ਵਾਕਈ ਇਕ ਯੋਗ ਉਮੀਦਵਾਰ ਹਾਂ!

ਜੇ ਸਿਖ ਵਿਦਵਾਨ ਇੰਜ ਮੇਰੀ ਖੁੱਲ ਕੇ ਹਿਮਾਯਤ ਕਰ ਦੇਣ ਤਾਂ ਬਾਕੀ ਜਥੇਦਾਰੀ ਤੇ ਸਿਰਫ ਇਕ ਫੋਰ੍ਮਾਲਿਟੀ (Formality) ਹੀ ਹੁੰਦੀ ਹੈ!

ਇੰਨਾ ਮਾਨ ਆਪਣੇ ਆਪ ਵਿਚ ਕਿਸੇ ਜਥੇਦਾਰੀ ਤੋਂ ਘੱਟ ਨਹੀਂ!

ਮੈਂ ਵੀਰ ਸੁਖਪ੍ਰੀਤ ਸਿੰਘ ਉਧੋਕੇ ਜੀ ਦਾ ਤਹੇ ਦਿਲੋਂ ਸ਼ੁਕਰਾਨਾ ਆਖਦਾ ਹਾਂ ਅਤੇ ਹੋਰਨਾ ਸਿਖ ਵਿਦਵਾਨਾ, ਚਿੰਤਕਾਂ ਅਤੇ ਪੰਥ ਦਰਦੀਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਵੀ ਅਪੀਲ ਕਰਦਾ ਹਾਂ ਕਿ ਮੇਰੇ ਹਕ਼ ਵਿਚ ਓਹ ਵੀ ਆਪਣਾ ਹੁੰਗਾਰਾ ਭਰਣ !

Ajmer Singh Randhawa-I offer my services at Akal Takhat to be given charge as Jathedar.

October 1, 2015

Ajmer kesri

I hv no dream to go to Akal takhat just to work for any political party as a puppet, any political party may rule but i am sure Punjab shall never accept the rule of others.
Only Sikhs have a right to rule in Punjab.
Sikhs hv no identity other then Punjab.
Punjab is our home.
My dream is – being a humble servant of panth, i should keep me focused to take the Khalsa Panth on rising spirit, as dreamed by 10th master.

He also chose Babaa Banda Singh Bahadar (one person) and gave the command of khalsa with five trustworthy Sikhs in his hand, with the same faith as i see in myself, i hv opted to come forward and offer myself for this holy cause.


Khalsa is my strength, the five chosen by Sarbat khalsa will be there to give me strength and fight all odds which are swallowing the panth from inside and outside like termites hollow the wood.

Nothing else other then strengthening the panth by trying to sort out the controversial issues which are never touched by previous jathedars due to political ill-will. They kept them alive to linger on, to be cashed before elections and until then keep dividing Khalsa.
This malpractice shall not be permitted anymore but every effort be made to unite Khalsa.


What do you suggest?

Ajmer Singh Randhawa.



When Z TV deliberately disfigured the Sikh sarup and made mockery with an Amritdhari character, i reported the matter to Jathedar gurbachan singh but on deaf ears.
No response was given to my emails, then i was compelled to paste the relevant material on net to expose this anti Sikh channel.
There would be hundreds of sikhs who might have sent emails on different occassions to complain or to get some suggestions on any religious matter but whether anybody got any response?

If so, kindly share here as it may be Akal takhat secretariat or the President of india’s secretariat, do not reply.

But if i am given the opportunity, Sikhs all over the world shall be connected with Akal takhat, their mails will be responded and necessary action must be taken, phone calls will be properly recieved, i may open free help line to be connected with every Sikh in every corner of world.

No one will feel isolated, he may be residing in india or far away from his motherland Punjab in any corner of world.

That i assure you.

Battle of Saragarhi, the saga of 21 Sikhs faced off against 10,000 Afridi Pathans on 12th Sep. 1897.

September 12, 2015

This ‘Kohinoor’ of the Sikh Regiment is one of the ten most famous battles of the world. Even to this date, this battle forms part of the school curriculum .

Since Saragarhi was a communications post, almost the entire battle was broadcast in real time by its signal man, Sardar Gurmukh Singh, which is why we today know what exactly happened there when 21 faced off against 10,000.

Saragadhi map

On the Samana Range of the Hindu Kush mountains in Pakistan, the British Army built a small communications post at Saragarhi, to be housed by an equally small contingent of soldiers. The region had always been a troubled area, and during the last quarter of the 19th century, British India’s hold on the North West Frontier was tenuous. In fact, several expeditions had been sent to maintain control and suppress rebellion in the region in the years immediately preceding the Saragarhi battle.

Saragarhi, itself, was little more than a small block house and a signaling tower. It was constructed to enable communications between Fort Lockhart and Fort Gulistan, two more significant British posts situated on either side of Saragarhi, albeit several miles apart.

Equipped with a heliograph, Saragarhi transmitted messages by using flashes of sunlight, sent much like telegraphic communication (read: Morse code). The flashes themselves were made by either pivoting a mirror or interrupting a beam of light.

In the summer of 1897, things were getting tense in the region, and the British had only recently ended an uprising of Pashtun tribesmen in the Malakand region (known later as the Siege of Malakand) in early August. By the end of the month, there was a general uprising of Afghans, and by the beginning of September, Pashtuns were actively attempting to capture British Army positions, including attacks on Fort Gulistan on September 3 and September 9.

To combat the Pashtun offenses, troops were sent from Fort Lockhart to reinforce Fort Gulistan, and after the battle on the 9th, on their return trip, a few soldiers were left to reinforce the small detachment at Saragarhi. All of the 21 soldiers remaining at Saragarhi were members of the 36th Sikh Regiment of the British Army, and the contingent was led by Havildar Ishar Singh.

On 12th Sept. 1897, 21 Sikh soldiers of 36th Sikh Regiment were beseized by ten thousand Afreedi Pathans (who claims to be the descendants of mighty king Faridun of Persia) at Saragarhi near fort Lockhart, distt. Kohat of N W F Province (now in Pakistan). The fierce battle known by the natives as ‘Teera battle’ or Saragarhi battle was fought on  12th Sep. 1897 under the command of havildar Ishaer Singh who caused maximum casualities of the invaders.

At the fag end of the battle only Havildar Isher Singh was left alone with twenty bodies of his brave fellow fighters Amritdhari Gursikh soldiers lying all around him. Unfrustrated by the attack of huge enemy, the  lone soldier fought  the battle for hours in the spirit of  Chardi-kalaa and showing exemplary courage unparallel in the history of wars, continued firing and fighting till the last drop of blood kept him alive.

He and twenty of his other brave  Sikh soldiers practically proved in the battlefield the prophetic pronouncement of Guru Gobind Singh that’ Sava lakh se ek laraoon, Tabhai Gobind Singh naam kahaoon’, All these twenty one Sikh soldiers who laid down their lives heroically were awarded the highest gallantry award —— the INDIAN ORDER OF MERITT (IOM) equalent to existing PARAM VEER CHAKRA for their supreme valor and sacrifices by British govt. The highest gallantry awards were given on that day to 21 Sikh soldiers which were the highest in strength awarded for any single day anywhere in world.

 When the news of that peerless sacrifice reached England, all the members of the British Parliament in their special session paid glowing tributes to the most daring Sikh soldiers and two minutes silence was observed in their sweet memory “The members of the house while eulogizing the remarkable acts of bravery of the brave Sikh soldiers of Saragarhi battle said, “the English as well as Indian subjects are proud of 36th Sikh Regiment and it is no exaggeration to record that the armed forces which posses valiant Sikhs can not face defeat in any war.”

 Below is the extract from a draft publication written in 2002, about Anglo-Sikh relations.

 It provide useful briefing material for projects like the Wellington Arch Sikh Exhibition in London, in January 2009.



         The Epic of Saragarhi 12th September 1897


“Fighting against overwhelming numbers, they all died at their posts, with unflinching loyalty and devotion to their oath while upholding to the very last, the traditional bravery of the Sikh nation”.  (The Commander-in-Chief, India).

This was one of the most heroic actions in recorded history fought by a small detachment of 21 jawans of the 36th Sikh (since redesignated as the 4th Battalion of the Sikh Regiment of the Indian Army). The action was fought at Saragarhi in North West Frontier Province, now in Pakistan and close to the Afghanistan border. Saragarhi was a small army post, a small square stone blockhouse built on a high ridge called the Samana Ridge.

The post provided vital communication between Fort Lockhart and Fort Gulistan on either side of the Saragarhi post.  One hundred and twenty-one jawans of the 36th Sikhs were in Fort Lockhart and 175 in Fort Gulistan at the time. You need to remember that communication those days was by visual signalling equipment.

Shortly after the attack began, Gurmukh Singh signaled for aid to Lieutenant Colonel John Haughton at Fort Lockhart, but he was told that immediate help was unavailable. Undeterred, the Sikh soldiers committed to fighting to the last to prevent the encroaching Pashtuns from reaching the other forts.

The first man injured was Bhagwan Singh, and sometime after, the invaders broke part of the wall of the picket. Offers were made to the Sikhs in exchange for surrender, but they were refused. The Sikhs were trying to buy as much time as possible for the other forts to be reinforced, and were willing to pay for that time with their lives. After two unsuccessful attempts at the gates, the Pashtun forces eventually breached the wall. Fierce hand-to-hand fighting ensued.

Shortly before the end, Ishar Singh ordered his men to retreat even further while he remained behind in defense. He, too, fell, during that charge, as did all of the remaining soldiers except for the heliograph operator, Gurmukh Singh. Gurmukh was the last to die, after being burned to death when the Pashtuns set fire to the post. He is reported to have repeatedly yelled until the end, the Sikh battle cry, “Bole So Nihal, Sat Sri Akal,” meaning “Shout aloud in ecstasy! True is the great Timeless One.”

Although no Sikh survived the battle, their sacrifice sufficiently delayed the Pashtuns such that reinforcements were able to arrive at the Pashtuns’ ultimate target, Fort Gulistan, in time to stop its fall.

In addition to the 21 Sikh dead, reports of Pashtun losses range from between 180 and 600, though it’s difficult to discern the true number accurately. That said, it was probably at least 180 as that is what the Pashtuns themselves later reported as their losses in that battle.

It is not surprising that following epics like the battle of Saragarhi and the earlier Anglo-Sikh wars, the gallantry of the Sikh battalions became legendary. The military fame of the Sikhs spread worldwide. The Sikh units of the Indian army became role models for others. They provided a source of inspiration for others while convincing the British commanders that soldiers from the Indian subcontinent could stand their ground against the best in the world. It is with this background that we need to assess the contribution of the Sikhs to the two World Wars fought for the freedom of mankind. A contribution, which is sometimes forgotten by the politicians or overlooked by the military historians.

ACCUSED SAJJAN KUMAR ALIAS DURJAN CHAMAR RECOGNIZED IN IDENTIFICATION PARADE AFTER 31 YEARS* held at Kadkadduma court, Delhi on 10-09-2015 by Sheila Kaur whose whole family was killed by provocation of said accused in 1984.

Note : Sajjan kumar is seen here in this picture distributing Iron rods to killing squad formed by him with consent of mass murderer Rajiv gandhi and HKL Bhagat to kill Sikhsin outer Delhi in 1984.

Sajjan chmar

The courage shown by poor woman Sheila kaur in court against Sajjan kumar has earned respect from whole Sikh nation. She not only faced counter questions to confuse her but also answered bravely silencing the council IU Khan. His inability could be claerly seen from his face expressions. The judge was also showing leniency towards Sajjan kumar but the councils (Gurbaksh singh, Lakhmi Chand and presence of HS Phulka) of victim Sheila Kaur and Bibi Nirpreet kaur, both present in court were very supportive and raised their objections several times when IU Khan tried to confuse Sheila kaur \as she was asked…..
Then IU Khan tried to confuse her by asking …….
To which she firmly replied that she didn’t count but could see the dead bodies of Sikhs scattered all around in the street.
So i pay my regard to this brave woman who lives in widow colony at Tilak vihar and works as maid servant, i have met her several times while working for www.seva84.com  and United Sikh Mission.Today both these woman proved LIONESSES and made history.
I congratulate whole Sikh panth on this great success as this was the first time in last 31 years when an organizer of Sikh genocide was recognized in testimony by a victim of 1984 whose all male members of family were killed on provocation by Sajjan kumar.
Come let us enjoy this moment of victory and congratulate each other.
But without kind efforts of DSGMC it couldn’t be possible as they are working behind it to get justice since 1984, the credit goes to its all Presidents and other members till date.
But as the grand success acheived today so President Manjit Singh GK, General Secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa and head of it’s legal cell Jolly J Singh also deserves to be praised ffor their tireless services in this this regard. I personally thanks them on behalf of whole Sikh nation.

Desecretion of Gurudwara Dongmar in Sikkim continues

June 1, 2015

Guru Nanak visited Chungthang after Gurudongmar, Thanggu and Lachen. As he was seated downhill, he was flocked by locals. A demonic-attitude person could not bear people under his influence to go to the guru. In anger he rolled a huge boulder downwards. Guru Nanak stopped the rolling boulder with his stick and to address people climbed up the boulder. Since it had wet earth, his footprints got etched into the boulder. Seeing his miraculous escape more people thronged to him and requested for water and food items. Guru Nanak scratched the earth and a fountain appeared. He spread the rice he had and buried the banana leaves. Later there was rice and bananas all over. He planted the stick which became a magnificent tree. Assam Rifles later camped here and made a Gurdwara in 1970s at the place.

The present Gurdwara structure at Chungthang was built by officers of the Assam Rifles and Army personnel with the help of the local Lepcha tribe in the early eighties. The area was restricted to service personnel and local people due to its strategic location near the border with China from the early eighties to 2005. The Assam rifles were transferred in September 2004 raising problems for the upkeep for the the Gurdwara. Before moving out Assam Rifles handed over the Gurdwara complex to the gaon burha. It took 6 months before the ITBP came. Between this period the local lama in conjunction with the gaon burha (sarpanch) converted the boulder complex into Boddh complex and with the help of Tourism department twin boundary walls were constructed and all the signs of Guru Nanak were removed and were later attributed to Beja Guru as can be seen from the board.

Latest Positions

At Chungthang entire stone complex converted as of Buddhist Veja Guru. The episode of Guru Nanak is now connected to Veja guru in place and a new board displayed to this effect. A wall has been created between Rice fields and Gurdwara. Bananas are not seen. A tower isERECTED along with the new Gurdwara. Name of Guru Nanak has been removed from main gate.

At Lachen, Robe, footprints and kamandal belonging to Guru Nanak are no more being shown to Sikhs.

At Gurudongmar, there was no monument or flag of any religion in 1970. Gurdwara and Nishan Sahib and a board giving details of Guru Nanak’s visit to the place came up in nineteen eighties. After 22 years, a yellow (Hindu) flag came up in 2002 and later a small box type Mandir wasERECTED seeing the visitors and large fund collection. The development was reported in ‘The Sikh Review’ May 2001 [20] issue. The photos show the situation in 2002 as published in Col Dr Dalvinder Singh Grewal’s book, Amazing Travels of Guru Nanak, May 2002, and So Than Suhawa, 2002, published by Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, Sri Amritsar. Case was taken up by Col Grewal with President SGPC S. Gurcharan Singh Tohra, who took it up with the then Def Min George Fernandez. He told Army Chief not to disturb Gurdwara. Accordingly Mandir and flag were removed. But again in 2005, a Sarav Dharma Mandir was created by Army. As per report from Siliguri Gurdwara Committee Sikkim Govt took over the Gurdwara complex in 2007, in connivance with the Army Commander of Sukhna clandestinely and converted it to a Boddhi complex as can be seen in video. It is important to get a Gurdwara with independent identity and sanctity constructed at Gurudongmar for development of Sikhism. Baba Surinder Singh kar sewa wale is already eager to build this complex if given the signal.

By viewing the reports on desecretion of Gurudwara Dongmar and other historical places commemorative to the visit of Guru Nanak in Himalayas, i find it very offensive as the Tibetans or the people of North-east deliberately making attempts to prove false the visit of guru Nanaak but the historical evidences and his name in folklores or in worship of locals is the biggest evidence of his (Guru Nanak’s) visit. Guru Nanak visited these areas and gave food to grow, water to drink and name of Lord Akal Purakh (almight God) to worship with the message of service to humanity  and distribute honest earnings with needy people.
So this message of him needs to be glorified and due respect be given to keep visits of his memory always alive.

Either Subhash bose was unaware or he ignored brutalities on Indian POWs, rapes on Indian women of all ages in Andaman Nikobar Islands by Japanese

May 31, 2015

True story

Capt Man Mohan Singh ji formed INA in 1942 with these Indian POWs who were sent to death valley of New Guinea as punishment on denial of fighting with British army. The strength was not sufficient to fight on all borders in front. He wanted two hundred thousand strength of army soldiers but there were less then 40000 provided to him.

Japanese wanted Indian troops to fight on front line and Japanese at the back to support them. That means Indian fighting and killing Indians on both sides.

Capt. Man Mohan Singh refused to follow this strategy planned by Japanese army, then INA was dismantled and these soldiers Capt. Man Mohan Singh were sent to New guinea where they suffered as stated above in this article.

Subhash Bose was in Germany, he was invited and offered to take charge of INA which he gladly accepted. He travelled to japan by a Uboat and took charge of INA at Kaithe building in Singapore in july 1943.

The Japanese committed same atrocities on civilians in Andman Nikobar where they raped all women of these islands of all ages and killed the male inhabitants brutally. Dr. Diwan Singh, a Sikh Dr. and social worker raised his voice, he was 82 but killed brutally in Cellular jail. Subhash was there on that night in Andman. Either he was not informed or he ignored as reformed INA was on support of japanese army.

He must be aware of brutalities on Indian POWs in New Guinea, rapes on indian women of all ages and killing of male inhabitants in Andaman Nikobar Island by Japanese army but i never noticed any of his remark.

None of the Indian Prime Minister ever persuaded Japan to regret and apologize on atrocities upon indians in world war II by it’s army.

Desecration of Gurdwaras in Sikkim Part II ~ Interviews

May 30, 2015

 Inside Lachen Gompha displayoing of belongings of Baba Nanak

Lachen Gompha which now does not show the relics of Guru Nanak ji.


May 20, 2015 by Col Dr Dalvinder Singh Grewal ~ dalvinder45@yahoo.co.in



Dr Dalvinder Singh Grewal

Guru Nanak came to Lachen from Gurudongmar Lake through Thanggu. In between Thanggu & Lachen his footprints were on stone. These were blown off during road building and found in Teesta river and preserved in Lachen Gompha. Guru Nanak had left the royal robe presented to Him by King of Tibet for help in construction of Sakya Monastery. He also left his karmanadal. Karmandal, royal dress and footprints are preserved in this monastery which myself saw many times during my stay in Sikkim and later by S Harbhajan Singh Setia and numerous other groups of Sikhs who visited the gompha. This time these were not shown to us when we visited the monastery.

Situation as on 02-05-2105

The Vastar (dress), kamandal (pot) and the footprints are not being shown to Sikh visitors since last three years.

Other places connected with Guru Nanak in Sikkim are Chhorten nyimala, Muguthang, Nakku la, Thanggu, Lachung, Phodong Gompha, Yumthang, Pyakochin and Gorala which could not be developed due to raised controversy.

Records of Some Interviews



Lachen Gompha July 1988

DSG: Whom do you worship in this Gompha?

Head lama: We worship Guru Rimpoche, whom you call Guru Nanak.

DSG: Did Guru Nanak come to this place (Lachen)?

Head Lama: I am not good at Hindi. Pointing to a boy stsanding next : This boy knows both Hindi and Tibetan.

Through the boy interpreter


DSG: Did Guru Nanak come to this place (Lachen)?

Head lama: Guru Nanak visited this and other places in Sikkim as per our records in religious books in Tibetan. He came from Tibet….. Guru Nanak helped Tibetan king in preserving Sakya monastery in Tibet. King presented the robe. (He points to the robe in blue and red preserved in glass case). We worship Guru Nanak’s idol (he shows an idol about 6 feet) placed on sanctum santorum. We have his footmarks on stone (He shows foot marks)

DSG: Where did you get these foot prints of Guru Nanak?

Head lama: These were on a stone by the side of Teesta river. These were blown off during road construction and fell into river and I later searched it out and placed it here.

DSG: Any other places connected with Guru Nanak?

Head Lama: There is a hot spring created by Guru Nanak near Jaure Bridge about 6 km from here. He visited Thanggu, Chungthang, Lachung and Phodong. His hand marks are at Gnalung and Thanggu on a big boulders. He came here from Tibet through Muguthang valley and visited Gurudongmar, Gagong and Thanggu. From here he went to Munsithang, Chungthang, Phodong, back to Chungthang, Yumthang and entered Yoksom where Tibetan Army is now camping enroute to Bhutan. He went to around 100 places in Sikkim. There is a place called Cheedang (Kidang) about 6 km North of Muguthang where his hand mark can be seen.

DSG: Tashi Dille

Head Lama: Tashi dille



Intelligence Office, Thanggu Oct. 1987

DSG: Will you please tell me as to what all places in Sikkim did Guru Nanak Rimpoche go?

JKB: He came to Sikkim from Tibet via Nakula and visited Gnalung where he rested. The area was very foggy and soggy and looked as if it is like hell hence Guru Nanak called it hell because Gnalung in Tibetan means ‘Valley of hell’.

Therefrom, he visited the Muguthang valley. There a Rakshash (demon) known as Rambha used to reside in the valley. He was harassing the human beings and the cattle. Guru Nanak found him to be destructive and powerful and considered bringing him to True Path. The demon came to know about Guru Nanak’s intention and also his powers. He changed his shape to various forms but could not escape from Guru Nanak’s view. He became a tiger, an eagle, a fish and a rat turn by turn but Guru Nanak followed him throughout. Seeing this, he hid under a huge boulder thinking that he was out of the reach of Guru Nanak. Guru Nanak waited close to the boulder and started playing with two big boulders as if the children play with small pebbles. Rambha saw this from the hole he was hiding in. He came out to look at the play closely. Seeing this, Guru Nanak took out the weapon which, in Tibetan we call Phurba (ceremonial dagger) and threw at the demon. This destroyed the right eye of the demon. Rambha fell on Guru Nanak’s feet. Guru Nanak advised him not to trouble human beings. Ramba took an oath never to trouble any human being or animal thereafter. He requested the Guru for the third eye which Guru granted him. Redeeming him, he proceeded further. From Muguthang he reached Thanggu area via Lungnakla and stopped at the Chopta bridge. You might have seen a chorten (monument) close to the bridge where a small rivulet flows in the form of a snake. Guru Nanak’s handmarks are available at Gnalung. From Thanggu, Guru Rimpoche went to Chungthang and had his lunch. He went to Chungthang via Lachen. I also have the information from the local people and the Thanggu Lama who has most of the details. At Chungthang, Guru Nanak threw rice at the place close to where he was sitting. In Sikkim initially, we have had rice at that the place only and nowhere else in the entire Lachen and Lachung valleys.

From Chungthang Guru Nanak proceeded to Lachung. In the area of Bichhu there used to be a very dangerous demon. This evil spirit was more powerful than that at Chungthang. In order to redeem this evil spirit, Guru Nanak followed him up to the jungles and caught it. He took out the tongue of this evil spirit and ordered to worship the True Lord by being quiet.

Guru Nanak also visited Guru Dongmar. The people had lot of problems regarding water as all the lakes used to get frozen and people had no water to drink. They projected their problems to the Guru, who hit the water with a stick. The place where he hit never freezes. The water is also blessed by the Guru. The men and women, who do not have children and take it, are blessed with a child. Now a fair is organised every year by the local people on the lake area in honour of Guru Nanak’s visit.

An Interview Taken In Oct. 1987

Chhimed Rigdzin Rimpoche, a 68 year old Lama, is considered as the only lineage holder and reincarnation of Nunden Dorje (Undeposed Powerful Thunderbolt), the foremost disciple of Buddh Sakyamuni. He is also recognised as the re-incarnation of Kyo-Chung Ltasa’s Body. Nanam Dorje Dudjom’s Speech and Guru Padamsambhava’s Mind. He was made in charge of the 12 Gomphas (monastaries) in the Eastern Tibet at the age of 4 and has been controlling these even in 1958. After having migrated to India in 1958, he helped to establish the Tibetan Government in exile and refugee children village and handicraft centre. He recently retired after 25 years as the head on the Indo-Tibetan Studies Department of Vishva Bharti University Shantiniketan in West Bengal and is a Lama of high standing with in the Nyingma/Karmapa school of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism. He is also an accomplished Yogi and has taught many religious students in Europe and America. His interest is in Guru Nanak as one of the Guru Rimpoche on Nyingma/Karmapa sect. He has translated Japuji in Tibetan in consultation with the renowed scholar Rahul Sankratyan. He went on a visit to China and Tibet to deliver sermons and agreed to trace out the route of Guru Nanak’s travels in China and Tibet. I interviewed him during his visit to North Bengal University where his son U.C. Lama (a friend of mine) is a professor in the University. The extracts of the interview are produced :-

(DSG : DS Grewal, CRR : Chhimed Rigdzin Rimpoche, UCL?


DSG: Would you tell me something about your life?

CRR: Though my name is Chimmed Riangdzen Rimpoche, but my more common name is CR Lama. I was born in East Tibet in 1922 and recognised as reincarnation in 1925 when I was just 4 years old. I was born poor and my parents never expected that I will ever be honoured with such a great honour. During my recognition when Guru Rimpoche Sulthun Sumbhu, head of the local monastary indicated my being the reincarnation of Ninden Dorje, number of other children of my age belonging of richer families were brought before the counsel for consideration as reincarnation as the rich and the authorities did not want that I, son of a poor man, should be declared as the reincarnation of such an exalted Rimpoche. About 200 Lamas tested our virtues and recommended me. Finally 5 Head Lamas each from central and eastern Tibet tested me and found me to be the true re-incarnation. I was first recognised by the Realised Master Tulku Tsurlo and later by nine other lamas which included the thirteenth Dalai Lama. Three very special tang-rils (divinations) were performed in which various names were written on paper and placed inside dough balls. At each of these tang-rils the only name to remain floating in the water bowl was my name. These tang-rils were performed in three highly auspicious places to guarantee their complete efficacy in front of Jowo Statue (the most ancient statue in Tibet) in the Jor-khang temple in Lhasa and before the assembly of Lamas engaged in powerful Protector Rites at the Khordong Gompha (place of meditation). Finally I was declared as reincarnation and exalted Nunden Dorje.

DSG: Do you believe in reincarnation?

CRR: Don’t you believe in 84 lakh jonies?

DSG: Do you still believe in miracles?

CRR: Yes I will ask you to listen to a chapter from my own life. At the age of 9, I took a stone in my left hand and squeezed it thereby altering its shape. I being naughty as a child, used to be locked inside my room but due to my magical abilities, was always able to escape without breaking the door or lock. At the age of 10, I discovered two important volumes of Terma and an iron Terma box.

DSG: We Sikhs don’t believe in miracles.

CRR: But Guru Nanak has shown number of miracles. He stopped a falling boulder in Punjab; he rotated Mecca; he also directed a poor man to the treasure in the Bhutan. In Tibet he subdued demons with miracles, In Kokonoor he found treasure from lake.

DSG: Did Guru Nanak visit Tibet?

CRR: Yes, he did. He went to Mansarovar, he went to Lhasa, he went to Kokonoor lake, he visited Samya and Saakya monasteries.

DSG: How can you say this?

CRR: We worship Nanak Lama in all our monastries and have installed his statues. We mention him in our prayers, we have mention of Guru Nanak in our books. I have also translated Japuji in Tibetan.

DSG: What all routes did he adopt while visiting Tibet?

CRR: The route I can’t tell exactly. But what I heard is that Guru Nanak or Nanak Lama or Guru Rimpoche as we call him, came from Rawalsar through Durang in Himachal Pradesh and visited Mansarovar and Kailash where he held discussions and created a great impression on local people and the saints. From Mansarovar he went to India probably and through Nepal crossed again to Tibet. He had visited Sakya monastery and other adjoining areas. To my mind, he came to Sikkim from Sakya monastery and went to Bhutan and to Lhasa through Tawang. Hand written script of Guru Nanak is stated to be preserved in Lhasa. He also visited Kokonoor lake, a sacred lake now in inner Mangolia. In Tibet he is known as Nanak Lama, Guru Rimpoche and also Guru Guopka Maharaj. He visited Samya Monastery also probably on return from Tibet. En route, he is stated to have visited Gokakula peak where even vultures cannot reach.

DSG: Do the people in Tibet know about his visit?

CRR: Yes, I keep on visiting China and Tibet. There they mention about it.

DSG: Do you mean that he visited China also?

CRR: Yes. That is what I heard but I cannot say definitely. Guru Rimpoche had great powers.

DSG: When did you translate Japuji in Tibetan?

CRR: I translated it in 1956-57 with the help of Rahul Sankratyan.

DSG: Did you get it published?

CRR: Not yet. I am eager to publish it but presently the manuscript is left at Shantiniketan where I taught for sometimes as Head of Tibetan Department.

DSG: I will be eager to get it published. Will you be able to get it by May-June?

CRR: I will try. Presently I am to go to Germany and then to China and Tibet. On return, I will give it to you.

DSG: Thanks, Tashi Dille

CRR: Welcome again, Sat Sri Akal.
