Who would be your unsung heros of modern Sikh history?
genie posted a topic in WHAT'S HAPPENING?We know the heros of the 80's and 90s aka the dharmi fauj Sikhs who defended and sacrificed their lives at darbar sahib and all those militant Sikhs in the fields and villages of punjab who fought the oppression of the indian state. But in terms of non-combatant Sikhs the religious and political figures, who would you name as those who did great service for Sikhi and Sikhs in post- 1947 indian independence times and your reasons why? My list would include the following: The late Sant fateh singh (In taking leadership role in the punjabi suba movement) The late Bhai Kapur Singh Sirdar (For his visionary and intellectually guiding light in Sikh affairs) The late Ganga singh dhillion (For his efforts in forming friendship with muslim leadership in pakistan allowing Sikhs to send jatha's for kar sewa helping to maintain Sikh shrines and gurdwara's across pakistan, afghanistan,iraq,iran and other parts of the world)
