June 1984, Light of Truth- 13.

Whether Sant Jarnail Singh and his associates were extremists?

              Jarnail Singh ji Khalsa Bhindranwale

If Sant Jarnail Singh ji and his associating Sikhs were terrorists, could Indian govt. clarify when it’s forces were getting training to attack on golden temple, why the senior political leaders, Press reporters and photographers, journalists were flocked to Darbar Sahib to visit Sant ji and get his interview during that time whose pictures are frequently available on internet. so whether they used to visit  and for interview of an extremist ?

Sant Jarnail singh daily used to sit on roof of Langar hall and then started meeting visitors at Sri Akal Takhat Sahib. Journalists interviewed him to make the headlines of news papers or to air on Radio daily. When he used to sit on roof in open, couldn’t he be shot with any telescopic rifle if he was a threat to nation? If it was so easy then what was the need of an army invasion on Golden temple and nearly 40 other gurudwaras to be desecrated in Punjab? And deliberately on auspicious day of martyrdom of fifth guru Arjan dev ji when thousands flock to religious places to pay their obedience to their Guru?

If Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwala was an extremist —- as the Indian govt. propagates then we Sikhs demand an evidence to prove it. The govt. of India should give an evidence to prove it whether Sant ji was summoned to be present in any Court of India and he didn’t or if any warrant issued against him or pending or whether he was declared an offender by any Court where he didn’t present or if the Govt. itself had declared him an extremist through it’s any order or whether the Parliament was also taken in trust to declare him an extremist? Kindly give details if any?

The truth is the Sikh youths were highly impressed by personality of Sant jarnail Singh ji, by his call they had given up the use of intoxicants, drugs and alcohol from their lives and initiated into Khalsa religion. Those who used to shorn their hairs or trim their beards, left it immediately and became Sikhs by initiation with Amrit into Sikh religion.  Many Muslim youths were also lured to be Sikhs, we fine many evidences in history when Muslims initiated Sikh religion. Now with inspiration of Sant ji, many Muslims came forward and offered themselves to be Sikh. They became true followers of Sant Jarnail Singh. They kept on fighting till their last breath with other Sikh youths to save Golden temple from invading Indian army.

Sikhs do not believe in violence.

Speech by Sant Baba Jarnail Singh Jee Khalsa Bhindranwale

Perhaps she (Indira Gandhi) has forgotten that a Sikh does not believe in violence. Sikh does not believe in destroying life. A Sikh always upholds Nanak Naam Chardhi-Kala Therae Bhanae Sarbat Da Bhulla “Nanak says: God’s Name is glorious; there is good for all in accepting Your will”. The Sikh follows this path. She has started to say so to give us a bad name. Either her CID (Intelligence Division) has given her this impression or she is deliberately being clever.

115,000 Have Volunteered To Die For The Faith. This Is Not A Handful.

There has been an announcement from the Akal Takhat regarding 115,000 volunteers ready to die. Among them I too have come to the stage on two occasions. I too have come to the Guru’s presence. All the mothers and brothers who have come there to the presence of Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, the True King; I have preached at length to them all and got them to make a pledge to become extremists. She (Indira Gandhi) says there is a handful of people. She should carefully note that 115,000 raised their arms.

Government Calls Devout Sikhs- “Extremists”.

We are firm extremists but of what type? Those who act the way Government says an extremist does. Whom does the Government call extremists? A person who takes Amrit (is formally initiated into the Sikh Faith) and administers it to others; who reads Baani (Siri Guru Granth Sahib) and teaches others to read it; who preaches unity and exhorts people to work together; who turns people towards cooperation; who unites them under the saffron Nishaan Sahib (the Sikh religious flag); who unites them with Akal Takhat Sahib and Harmandar Sahib; who is desirous of seeking justice (retribution) for the dishonor to our daughters and sisters, for the spilt blood of innocent people, for the irreverence shown towards Siri Guru Granth Sahib, the True King, and exhorts others to do the same – and we have to get these rights – the present Government has started calling such people extremists. Only Sikhs Of The Guru Have Volunteered. They Are More Than A Fistful.

I had said these things when I asked people to raise their arms. He who is a Sikh of the spinning wheel and the goat, a Sikh of the Radhaswamis and Narkdharias (Nirankaris), a Sikh who waters the pipal tree and sprinkles sandhoor on the Jand tree, should not raise his arm in the presence of our Master (Siri Guru Granth Sahib). He who is a Sikh of Satguru Granth Sahib, is a friend of the Panth (the Khalsa Brotherhood), has respect for the honor of daughters and sisters, has respect for the spilt blood of the innocent and the brave, should raise his arms. This was the pledge I got from the stage. They were 115,000. She should think it over. They were 115,000. (One might say to her): “You are not the form of Guru Nanak that you can include all of them in your fist. Your fist could not even contain Jagjiwan Ram (a former Minister in the Government of India), not even Bajpai (a Hindu leader) and others. They left you and departed. How will you hold 115,000 Sikhs in your fist through mere talk?” She says there is only a handful! From one point of view it is even a good thing. So long as the fist is closed the fist is formed, it is there. When we open the hand, it becomes a slap. Fingers cannot hurt as much as a fist can. When the fingers are closed they call it a fist. You know, in our language, what the fist can do. So, Khalsa Ji, so long as our fist is closed, we are together. We desist from mutual criticism. We are Guru’s Singhs and work together. Let us stop saying “I am a Congresi, I am an Akali, I am Bhindranwala, I am so and so.” Giving these up, one thing should penetrate the Sikh’s mind: “I am a Sikh, I want to live in Hindostan as a Sikh and not as a kesdhari Hindu (Hindu with uncut hair).” When this thing enters our mind (we shall succeed). She says “they are a handful.” One hundred and fifteen thousand have made the pledge here. Some friends have registered their names with me too. Some say: “Why have they registered their names with you?” Some brothers talk like this too. I do not wish to name them, may God give them good sense. I pray to the Guru. I am not angry with them. That’s all the wisdom they have. Friends have registered their names with me too. Who are the people who have done so? These were those who said:

“We are not going anywhere without you.” The President, Sant Baba Harchand Singh Ji Longowal, was asked. A request was made to him:”Baba Ji, some Singhs think like this. You should tell us (what to do). If tomorrow there is going to be a talk that (Bhindranwale is) forming his own Akali Dal, then I shall request these people to go home. But if you so order, I can register them.” He said: “Get them registered.” Persons between sixteen and forty years of age have been registered. We have registered older persons as well but that (list) is separate. In this age group, the count with me is thirty thousand. She says they are a handful! Garja Singh and Bota Singh (Sikh heroes from 18th century who defied the Imperial rulers) were two. It will be good if the Guru has mercy, the Satguru is benevolent, and the job gets completed in peace. We definitely are supporters of peace, but if the train once starts then it will be known whether they are a mere handful or too many even for (enclosing in a blanket) wrap.

Bashir Mohammad alias Lachman Singh

A Muslim Police cop Bashir Mohammad was deputed as spy and sent to Golden Temple in disguise of a Sikh. His mission was to collect information on movement of Sikh youths in the group of Sant Jarnail Singh. Though e on govt. duty but he got so much influenced and impressed to see courage and life style of these Sikh youths that he himself appeared before Sant ji and revealed his secrecy and wished to be a Sikh. He was then initiated into Khalsa by Amrit initiation ceremony and a new name given to him as Laxman Singh. He got martyred while defending Golden temple in invasion by Indian army. His wife was pregnant for 8 months. She was picked up by police after martyredom of her husband, she was killed with her foetus in her uterus. We salute all these three and pay our tributes to departed heroes of Sikh  panth.

The Hindu press (Punjab Kesri) had declared these Muslim youths as Pakistani soon after recovery of their dead bodies. The reason was —- to justify attack on Golden Temple by Indian army and to defame Sikhs.  This newspaper group had no evidence to prove but I give a strong evidence here. Kindly view the person in picture pasted below, how a Muslim youth embraced Sikh religion and then became a general of freeddom fighters also.

These Muslim youths were earlier circumcised before they embraced Sikh religion, hence they were declared Pakistanis by Hind Samachar Group whereas dead do not introduce themselves otherwise these dead brothers would have given their introduction of being Sikhs.

Not only Muslims, many Hindus too embraced Sikh religion and participated in fighting to save Golden temple but the Hindu press never revealed this secret. We could hardly receive a picture of Bhai Dula ji who was a Hindu and he too got martyred fighting with Indian army in Golden Temple. We bow our head in due respect to these Hindu brothers also and we Sikhs feel proud on their martyrdom.

Bhai Dula and Vikas Pandit

The brave Hindus, Bhai Dula Singh ji and Sh. Vikas Pandit ji who joined Khalsa fauz of Sant Jarnail Singh ji and got martyred defending Darbar Sahib durig Operation Bluestar.

The Brave Hindu brother, Bhai Dula Singh,who joined Khalsa fauj of Baba Jarnail Singh ji and became a Shaheed fighting for defense of Darbar Sahib in Operation Bluestar. He was just 17 that time. He had a Blue Gol Dastar on his head during the Battle. He was given this name by Santji! Dula means ‘Beloved Son’.

The Hindu Brahmin brother, Hardev Singh (Bhola Pandit) who sacrificed his life fighting for defense of Darbar sahib along with Khalsa fauj.

Neither we can assume without full information to conclude anything nor we can share a detailed account of sacrifice by these Hindu or Muslim brothers. All of these martyrs had joined the movement at their own will to participate in holy war to save sanctity from invading Indian army. Not many articles are written in their praise, no songs of their valor ever sung but even then we salute their martyrdom.

Some facts are received about Bhai Roshan Lal Bairagi. It’s said that he is the first Hindu brother who embraced Sikh religion on inspiration by Sant Jarnail Singh ji. These bairagis are said to be followers of Baba Banda Singh ji. Sant Jarnail singh ji ordered one of his follower Bibi Nirpreet akur to marry him. She was only 16 years old at that time. She bowed  her head to the choice of her groom by Sant Jarnail Singh ji but unfortunately Bhai Roshan lal was arrested in Delhi within 12 days of his marriage and killed on the way when he was being brought to Punjab in a fake encounter by Punjab Police. It was the first fake encounter. Bibi Nirpreet kaur is now indulged in social service to these destitute families of victims of 1984 since then. She has dedicated her life to this mission.

There are some more names revealed by Hindu media who embraced Sikh religion, a few important names are as  …. Pradeep Kumar alias Sher Singh (After initiation amrit), Rakesh Kumar alias Ranjit Singh pappu matyred in 1992, Balwant Rai alias Gurditt Singh Gullu martyred in 1992, Ashok Kumar Billa. Ramesh Lal alias Kabul Singh martyr, Vikas Pandit and his brother Ashok Kumar (Sukhvinder Singh), KC Sharma martyr, Sushil Kumar martyr, Sham Sundar Shastri alias Ranjit Singh Bittu martyred in1992, Bhai Des Raj Des Salem Tabri martyred in 1992, Tarsem Raj escaped from Police and disappeared 1992 and Ram Swaroop Pandit alias Surjit singh martyr 1992.

Baldeep Singh

Bhai Baldeep Singh was that brave martyr of Malwa religion of Punjab who glorified the Babbar Khalsa Organization.

Born in a Hindu family, the son of Vaidya Harbans Lal Sharma and mother Balwant Kaur had adopted the Marxism movement in Budhlada of Malwa under influence of Punjab Students Union,  but later on he joined the Babbar khalsa organization and got martyred on 8th August 1992 in a fierceful fight at village Ramteerath in Talwandi Sabo along with another brave militant Bhai Sukhdev Singh babbar.  On this day the chief of this militant Organization was arrested at Patiala and brought to Ludhaiana before he was martyred                                          

Bhai Baldeep Singh having his roots in Hindu family reminded us the brave past of 18th century when the eldest son of the family was embraced in Sikh region and offered to Guru. To-day when we hear the proud words of his father Vaidya Harban Lal Sharma, we feel proud on the sacrifices of these Hindu brothers who laid down their lives. His father is so proud of his martyrdom that he says that “his son got martyred fighting with tyrant Indian army in his efforts to establish Sikh kingdom”. In a straight forward manner when he knows that the common enemy of the soil of Punjab is Delhi which has suppressed the rights of Punjabis.  He understands that the solution of all the troubles of Punjab is creation of Sikh kingdom, therefore he feel proud that his son sacrificed his life for a great mission of liberty to Punjab.

The younger brother (Harjeet Singh) of Bhai Baldeep Singh was also picked up by Punjab police just after two months from his residence who is disappeared since then like thousands of other Sikh youths in Punjab. We bow our heads in due respect to these martyrs whose family members can not perform any religious rights every year to commemorate their memories or to pray the almighty to rest their souls in peace being poors. But the Sikhs are not thankless, we do at our own and pray every moment for the high spirit and prosperity of their families from almighty Akal Purakh Waheguru ji. This can only be our true homage to these valiant Sikh youths.

Hindu women meeting Sant ji

In this picture Sant ji is seen with a group of Hindu girls who visited to get his blessings. Sant ji called them as their daughters and assured them of their safety in Punjab.

In fact , it’s very difficult to give full detail in lack of complete information of these Punjabi Hindu brothers who participated in Dharam Yudh Morcha because the full information is not available. We tried to collect the information from net. We make our best efforts to collect the maximum information about these brave brothers and to share with our readers.

Though the Indian media is silent on their role but there were many Hindu youth who were hurt on attack on Golden temple and by  rejection to implement Anandpur Sahib resolution because this demand of Anandpur Sahib resolution was in the interests of whole Punjab not only in favor of Sikhs. All the residents of Punjab were to be benefited by it’s implementation. Therefore many of these Hindu youths embraced Sikh religion in protest and sacrificed their lives fighting Indian army and other para-military forces by fighting along with Sikh brothers shoulder to shoulder.

The 10th master of Sikh religion had preached his followers that …”Regard the other beautiful women as your sister, mother and daughter” therefore the Khalsa should honor every women irrespective of her religion, cast, color or creed as his mother, daughter or sister.

There were many among these who had received help from Sant ji and were aware of the loss to Punjab by not implementation of Anandpur Sahib resolution. They were also upset on demolition of Akal Takhat by Indian army. They too wanted to pay the debt of their motherland by fighting along with their Sikh brothers, shoulder to shoulder with their common enemy—the Indian army and got martyred fighting valiantly. They were fully aware that their forefathers had earlier betrayed with their motherland but now they had decided to wash this blackspot with their blood.

There is one example when a Nepali Hindu youth embraced Sikh religion and became an active member of Babbar khalsa.

 

            Balbir Singh                         

                            Balbir Singh—Nepali Sikh

 The senior Suprintendent of police Balbir Singh revealed that Balbir Singh was a Nepali Hindu and he embraced Sikh religion few years ago. He was arrested in 1996. It was this man Balbir Singh who helped Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara and others to escape from Budhail jail of Chandigarh to Nepal.

Not only this, the Chrishtians in Punjab too participated in this agitation. Khurram Masih alias Manjit Singh alias Kaala alias Akaal was a Chrishtian who embraced Sikh religion. He was also companion of Neeta. He got martyred in Dablehar village of RS Pura of Jammu on 28th December 200. As per received information from police, he was a hitman in Neeta’s gang. This Khurram Masih was responsible for nearly 20 blasts in Punjab, Jammu and Delhi.

I still remember, Sh Jai Prakash Narain had reacted on a slogan given by govt. of India as …. INDIA IS INDIRA INDIRA IS INDIA and said ….it’s in our constitution ….you say something, we listen, we say something, you listen. The nation can prosper by saying and listening each other but by being everything, one can’t be the fate of a nation.”

But the flatter bureaucrats had called Indira as India but see now India is still there but where is Indira?

Letter to Indira by JSB

Sant Jarnail Singh ji had written a letter to Indira in Punjabi language, a copy of said letter is pasted below. Kindly read the English translation of it and know the complaints of Sikh nation with center (govt. of India).

To the head of India as per political side Smt. Indira ji, I am presenting my views through this letter shall knock at your deaf ears. My voice shall reach against the atrocities upon Sikhs. These atrocities have badly hurt the Sikh sentiments. Hopefully may your deaf ears be able to hear the voices soon you see the language used in this letter . I want to express my emotions through this letter to cure your deafness, so read it carefully. The probe in murder case of Lala Jagat Narayan being him Hindu was completed within three days. This is proved from my arrest but the investigation in the case of killing of murderers of Sikh Gurus( Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji), against destroyers of property of Sikhs, and against the looters of assets and property worth over Rs. Three lacs in Chandokalan was stopped on writ of an officer that this is case is pending in the Cuort of a Sikh judge. My case was produced before a Hindu judge, this is   an evidence of your deafness because no Sikh ever raised his objection on hearing of my case by a Hindu judge. No Hindu was punished to jail for Hindu state (Suba), nor any Hindu ever arrested to name a train on any Hindu temple, nor any  Hindu sentenced to jail on allegation of his demand to name few Railway station as pious, nor any Hindu had to sacrifice to keep his religious insignia (signs) sacred. They got everything  which they were supposed to get according to their religion. But on the contrary, more than one hundred thousands of Sikhs were arrested since India got independence and Sikhs volunteers produced themselves for arrest to meet their demands on Punjabi suba, on live kirtan of Gurbani from Golden temple, for a separate state, and on declaration of the status of pious city to Amritsar, even Sikhs had to sacrifice to get a right to wear their holy signs but all these could never enter in your deaf ears.

Sikhs had to face the tyrannies in previous regimes also, but you should know when the Sikh lost their patience, they returned valiantly by adorning themselves with armaments as per orders of their tenth Guru—Guru gobind Singh. When all the doors of settlements get closed, than to hold the weapon for pride remains the last right. (Zafarnama).

But so far we have no plan to raise the weapons but if atrocities continue against Sikhs, it shall not be tolerated anymore, because we too have lost our patience now. We have seen a long times by living in peace. Whenever we insist to accept our demands, we say that every Hindu has a right to have faith in religious article of faith. We regard all such Hindus as our brothers. Similarly a Sikh and a Muslim too should have an equal right to wear his articles of faith.! We preach this lesson daily then how does it justify to call such a religious preacher a terrorist?

 To crush pride of Sikh,  to push tobacco forcefully in the mouth of a Sikh,  to make wounds on body and then spray salt on it,  to set fire the homes of Sikhs,  to defame Sikh girls by humiliated allegations,  to kill the Sikh students in fake encounters after their arrest on fabricated charges etc. such relevant incidents are necessary to mention here. Everything is stated briefly in this letter. If you can spare some time, I would like to state in detail the atrocities faced by we Sikhs. 

Jarnail Singh Khalsa,

(Courtesy with thanks: The Sunday Indian)

So the fate of Indira was also written the day Indian army attacked on the Golden temple. Sikh people can forget everything but can never forget  that attack on their places of worship or disrespect to their Guru. Thus Indira had signed herself her own death warrant by giving order of this attack.

You might remember the General Dyer had massacred the innocent Indians at Jalianwala (near Golden Temple) on Baisakhi day in 1919. Nearly 1000 innocent people were killed in this massacre. A Sikh youth Udham Singh had pledged to avenge this massacre and punish general Dyer. He honored the nation taking avenge after 20 years in Britain when in a felicitation ceremony General Dyer was shot by him. Thus he punished the sinner. But it seems Indira had not studied the history otherwise she could learn a lesson and assume the reaction of Sikhs after this army invasion on Golden Temple.

But it seems that Indira had realized her fault and she had come to know that her end was not far. But she never learnt a lesson from her historical mistake instead she kept on giving the details to avenge with Sikhs in case if she gets assassinated untimely — she kept on guiding and kept the preparations on to avenge with Sikhs in secret meetings with her trusted bureaucrats and high officials in army and Police.

It’s evident from the voter lists distributed to congress workers the next day of her assassination on 1st November 1984. These voter lists had the details of business houses, homes, factories of Sikhs and were marked. There were no computers and not high speed Photostat machines at that time so these voter lists were prepared after a hard work of months.

All these preparations were made secretly  and the help of their trustworthy people was only taken otherwise thousands of Sikhs and Punjabi people are employed in Delhi administration and it could be difficult to keep this secret. It seems this work was secretly done under supervision of Ministry of Home Affairs.

These voter lists were seen in the hands of hired goons and killing squads of Congress on 1st November 1984. Therefore it’s not difficult to assume their preparations.

A report from the CBI, (India’s Central Bureau of Investigation) shows the massacre was sanctioned and organized by the police and the central government which then was headed by Indira Gandhi’s son, Rajiv Gandhi.  Voters lists were used to locate Sikh homes and shops, which were marked with a ‘S.’ Lynch mobs amply armed with weapons and gasoline etc. would then descend on these ‘targets’ to rape and kill. The organized rapes and violence on Sikh women in rural Punjab continued even after 1984.  As Human Rights Watch observes, 29 years on, the Government of India has still not prosecuted those responsible.  Indeed among them, politicians from Rajiv Gandhi’s Congress party, the ruling party now headed by his widow, have been predictably acquitted!

General Brar ——- when asked by reporters if large number of Sikhs surrendered -HE SHOT Back that -“They fought very strongly-nobody surrendered”.
