Book on Operation Bluestar released

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, July 25

Hardip Singh Dibdiba, a former personal assistant of Bhai Jasbir Singh Rode and a former Jatheder of Akal Takht, has written a book on the developments consequent to Operation Bluestar carried out by the Indian Army at the Golden Temple in June 1984.

Dibdiba alleged that the stance of his former boss, Bhai Jasbir Singh Rode was unprincipled during the years after the Bluestar Operation. He said the book also contained references to the talks held between Bhai Rode and various government functionaries at that time.

In the book he also said the Sikh community should not have any hope from Mr Simranjit Singh Mann or from late Gurcharan Singh Tohra and further said even the Damdami Taksal was not capable of leading the panth.

This book titled “ Saka neela tara toon baad” (after Operation Bluestar) has highlighted the weakness of the personalities leading the Sikh community at that time. The book aims to ask these leaders to look within their own conscience, he said. The book also advises the community to fight on issues.

The book was released last weekend by former Chief Justice Ajit Singh Bains.

Has anyone read it in punjab?

Hardeep Singh is now receiving threats. But, he said nothing new. Read book by Sarbjot Singh on Operation Black Thunder. Sarbjot Singh showed real faces of such people. Other points by Hardeep Singh are well known.

Can you share some of the points mentioned? I've not read any of those books. Read a chapter from "soft target". So kinnda want to hear what author has to say.

The book is in my hand. I have had a cursury look and read its introduction 'Do Shabd' by Bhagwan Singh.

This book surely has lots of new and first hand information. rolleyes.gif I was absolutely wrong when I said there is nothing new in this book.

We should respect views by our opponent. If we do not like such views, we can have a debate in a good way, without hiding our real identities. When we hide our real identities, if indicates that we have no faith in our own views or we are coward.

So far as Bhai Hardeep Singh Dibdiba is concerned, I think it is his brave step that he spoke his mind and shared his experience.

At the same time, it is bad that a few people have threaten him. I thought such threats were annonymous, but I have talked to Bhai Hardeep Singh Dibdiba himself. He confirmed that there are many threats. A few of persons even threatened him on face.

At this stage, I do not want to mention names of persons, who gave threats to Hardeep Singh Dibdiba. But, as a writer, I strongly condemn such acts. A Sikh follows Gurbani, "Bhai Kaahoo Kau Det Naih, Naih Bhai Maanat Aan".

Congratulations to Bhai Hardeep Singh 'Dibdiba' on this bold step. :D

(Note: 'Dibdiba' is Hardeep Singh's native village).

Regards,

Amrit Pal Singh 'Amrit'

:T: Do I ramble a lot? :T: As I have said in my previous post, I have had a 'CURSORY' look on this book and read introduction by BHAGWAN SINGH. When I have not read whole book, how can I tell its new points? :T: This book has 216 pages. It will take time to read it carefully.

As I said, I have read introduction, which tells that the writer Hardeep Singh Dibdiba worked with S. Joginder Singh, father of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale after the Operation Blue Star. He also worked as PA to Bhai Jasbir Singh Rodey. He remained close to Damdami Taksal Mehta. He was president of U.P. unit of Akali Dal (Maan) from 1985 to 1989. This is what I have read in introduction.

In a few of first pages of his book, the writer gives brief description how the Government arrested Bhai Jasvir Singh Rodey, who was unknown to Sikhs. The govt. projected him as a hero of Sikh nation in India and abroad.

In other parts of his book, the writer has given many eyewitness as well as other accounts, in which described character of Thakur Singh, Jasvir Singh Rodey, Joginder Singh 'Rodey', Sant Harnam Singh Dumma, militant Malkiat Singh Ajnala and hero of many of present pro-Khalistani people Sardar Simranjit Singh 'Maan'. :T: These are very interesting parts of this book. He has also given an eyewitness account of Sri Maan Sant Baba Maan Singh Ji Pehowe Wale..... LOL.gif .... He also gives an eyewitness account of Khalistani Taliban courts in Sri Darbar Complex.

And, Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwala is his hero. :T:

I think technical problems in my forum and blog are now solved by my younger brother Mr. Sikhawareness. So, I will go back to my own forum. :T: Before leaving your discussion forum, I will try to post a few of comments from this book by Bhai Hardeep Singh Dibdiba. This book is in Punjabi, so obviously I will type in Gurmukhi fonts. I do not know how this forum uses Gurmukhi font. I need help in this regard.
