    An old article but still very relevant even today Sant Bhindranwale Did Nothing Wrong By Defending The Golden Temple General S. K. Sinha (Retd.), GOC-in-C of the Western Command, Spokesman Weekly, July 16,1984 While fighting against army hordes from June 5 to 7 last, Sikhs inside the Golden Temple Complex at Amritsar were exercising their legitimate right of self defence. This conclusion is based on the facts revealed and assessment made by Lieutenant General S. K. Sinha (Retd.), when he was GOC-in-C of the Western Command. "The Army action was not the 'last resort' as Prime Minister Indira Gandhi would have us believe, decided upon toward May-end (1984). It had been in her mind for more than 18 months". Said the General that when he was GOC-in-C of Western Command, he got a call around 10pm, from 'someone in Delhi' that a decision had been taken at the highest level that the army should undertake the arrest of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. Nothing was heard after the General told the caller that in matters like this he would like to hear from either the Chief of Army Staff or the Defence Minister. This was toward 1981 end when Darbara Singh was Chief Minister i.e. nearly 30 months before the Army actually struck at Arnritsar. "Again, when Sant Bhindranwale went into Mehta Chowk" adds General Sinha, "there was a request to the Army to supply Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC) to the police to facilitate his arrest." This was long before the Akalis launched their morcha in August 1982. Shortly after the morcha, the Army began rehearsals of a commando raid near Chakrata Cantonment in the Doon Valley, where a complete replica of the Golden Temple complex had been built. "Another training involving Aviation Research Centre Commandos, was given in the Sarsawa area and Yamuna bed in helicopters converted into gunships. This plan, earmarked for implementation first in August last year (1983) and then in April this (1984) year, was given up as it had leaked out to the Sikh militants." "In view of these military preparations, if Sant Bhindranwale and his men decided to defend the Golden Temple with all their might and means, no one can, and should, blame them." "You are duty-bound to do your all when you know someone is going to raid your house. In this case, the house was the holiest Sikh Shrine in the world." "All you have to do is to match the adversary's weapons with your own weapons of equal, if not more, fire power. This is an acknowledged rule of combat." "Mrs. Gandhi contends that arms were being collected by Sant Bhindranwale for the last one year. But this was much after she herself had drawn up plans for Army action against the Golden Temple and other gurdwaras." "In December, last year (1983) two trenches were dug by Sant's men in front of Teja Singh Samundari Hall within the holy complex but he was persuaded to fill them up." "This proves that till then no responsible Akali leader was prepared for an armed showdown with the Government." Fortification of the complex, according to SGPC Secretary Bhan Singh, started from February 17 this year (1984). And that also after CRPF and BSF units had resorted to unprovoked firing and had begun converting the buildings on the periphery of the temple into bunkers and fortresses. This action of the Sikhs was a just response to the provocation provided by Government's para military forces. Again, toward May end this year, CRPF and BSF units deliberately fired 10,000 bullets per day on the temple area for more than a week in order to find out from the return firing, as has been officially admitted now, where the terrorist fortifications were located and what kind of equipment they had. This was given a deliberate design to escalate the conflict. No Sikh worth his salt could allow easy entry into the Golden Temple area to any armed force. It is his sacred duty to smash the enemy's teeth and sacrifice his life while fighting. This is what Sant Bhindranwale and his men did. In the best tradition of Sikh warriors, they fought to the last bullet and their last breath. For the same reason, hundreds of men, women and children, who had come to the Golden Temple as pilgrims, decided to lay down their lives when they saw the army invading the holy area. Before this open clash of arms, there were hardly five per cent Sikhs who supported Sant Bhindranwale's actions or utterances. But now the Government has made him a hero in the Sikhs' eyes. Now everyone, including his previous detractors, hail him as a martyr of the same genre as Baba Deep Singh who had fought against Ahmed Shah Abdali's marauders. Sant Bhindranwale's previous acts of commission and omission stand washed white by his making the supreme sacrifice of life for a noble cause. The present Government shall live to rue the day of June 5, 1984. http://shaheed-khalsa.com/defending.html

    AAP has given lok Sabha tickets to Sardar H.S. Pholka and Sardar Jarnail Singh (Delhi). AAP should get Sikh support they have done more for Sikhs than Badal and his Akalis.

    Why is it that sikhs are so against rs? First of all i wonder if we asked the great Guru nanak dev ji if he had a problem with this rs path would He to be as selfish as his follower never he would welcome everyone with open arms as all the rs baba ji is doing is spreading the message, just like the 10 gurus did, and to be honest this is where sikhs have got it all wrong when they think the sikh bible is only for sikh it was meant For all mankind not only sikhs and if we look deeper into the sikh bible it is clearly writen that you have to search for a living spiritual teacher And one who can give you the five holy names, im not here to upset anybody simply want some answers

    Controversial Dera Sauda Sirsa chief charged with rape and murder claims he is ‘incapable’ of having sex By GURTEJ SINGH Published: February 14, 2014 Panchkula (February 14, 2014): It is learnt that controversial self-styled godman and Dera Sauda Sirsa head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Insan, who is facing rape and murder charges, has told Panchkula court that he is not mentally and physically fit to have sexual intercourse. According to a ‘Mail Online India’ news dated: 12 Feb, S.K. Garg Narwana, counsel for Gurmeet Ram Rahim, told mediapersons: “Dera chief told the court that he was not fit to indulge in physical relationships”. Gurmeet Ram Rahim (Dera Sauda Sirsa) [File Photo] Controversial dera chief, who recorded his statement under section 313 of IPC through video conferencing, on Tuesday contended that the allegations levelled him were false and baseless. A Sadhvi had in 2002 written an anonymous letter addressed to the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, accusing the Dera chief of sexual abuse. The Punjab and Haryana High Court took up the matter and ordered a CBI probe into the incident on September 24, 2002. Gurmeet Ram Rahim is also facing two murder charges. He is accused of murdering a Sirsa-based journalist, Ram Chander Chatrapati, who had been writing about the Dera’s activities. Chatrapati was shot on October 24, 2001 and died on November 21. He was also accused of killing sect manager Ranjit Singh in July 2002. According to CBI counsel HPS Verma, Dera head has made more than 100 video conference appearances but not a single physical appearance in court, which is mandatory under Section 313 of the Criminal Procedure Code. Dera head had on September 16, 2013 filed a plea in the court alleged that he was facing threats to his life. Controversial dera chief’s blasphemous activities against the Sikh Gurus had irked Sikhs in 2007, following which an edict was issued by Akal Takht asking Sikhs to boycott the sect activities at all levels.

    Excellent Sikhs should support them as the AAP is the only party that has taken action for Sikh rights. After 30 years it has woken up the Badal Akalis to start talking about the injustices of 84.

    Sikh Organisation For Prisoners Welfare (SOPW) **TIHAR PRISONERS FORCED TO HUNGER PROTEST** SOPW can confirm the recent reports that a group of Sikh political prisoners as well as non sikhs lodged at Tihar high security jail in Delhi have been forced to begin an indefinite hunger strike due to the over zealous and totally unnecessary new security measures implemented by the Tihar jail authorities. We were informed some two weeks ago that the jail authorities were introducing a new scheme relating to the meetings of prisoners by their personal visitors. The recent changes that have been implemented that have caused an inevitable and understandable uproar right across Tihar jail are as follows: 1. Prisoners were previously entitled to face to face meeting with their visitors through a bullet proof and transparent screen divide and communication was via a small microphone. Now ALL meeting will be held via video conferencing, this method means that each and every meeting and the entire conversation will be recorded. We understand this will also be applied to the prisoners own spouses. 2. Prisoners were previously allowed two meeting with their friends and families. This has now been reduced to only one meeting per week. 3. Prisoners are only allowed regular visits by a limited number of thoroughly vetted persons, previously the number allowed were 10. Under the new procedures only five persons will be allowed to regularly meet the prisoners. Should a new person wish to visit, a prior application would need to be made and their entitlement given in place of another existing visitor. We are working on establishing the reasoning behind this clearly unreasonable policy adopted by Tihar jail authorities and what their current position is now that so many inmates have taken to hunger protest in opposition. Our immediate concern is for the health of the prisoners who have been forced to take such drastic actions as a result of what appears to be nothing more than a modern twist on the standard practise of mental torture that the Indian Government is notorious for inflicting especially against those who speak out against them. We will bring you the latest development on this latest news as and when we are informed.

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Paneer Bhaji, your posts are very valid and insightful. Humble request, please can you (or anyone else) put all your thoughts (together) in an article about the 'delusions of radhasoami's' and we will publish on our site. Historically, there would have been no radhasoami's without Sikhi. Radhasoami's want to be Sikhs (not the other way around). Many hindu's turn into radhasoami's, learn the truth and then embrace Sikhi. Seperately, we are investigating claims that radhasoami's were a British invention with a long term plan to turn Indians into Christians. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and manmukh radhasoami's have unintentionally ended up strengthening Sikhi. They should try listening to the following and accept why Waheguru is steering them in this direction...
