Sikh Federation (UK) programme on Sunday 6 January to honour Shaheed Satwant Singh Ji and Shaheed Kehar Singh Ji at Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Slough


Recommended Posts

they are anti panthic , so thye aint gonna be happy.

They will try and come up with some sort of excuse

They are made up of mostly dodgy business men and booze bootleggers

I hope the program goes ahead but these guys just care about £££ and not sikhi

As regards the Promo:

It appears some in the Management Committee want no mention of the Sikh Federation (UK) who booked the Akhand Paat Sahib Ji almost a year ago.

They do not want the Sangat to know who will be speaking and the Jatha that will be in attendance on Sunday 6 January.

A local youngster in Slough has produced the following image from the Promo by adding the word 'BANNED' that sums up the way some in the Management Committees are thinking.

In 2001 the Indian Government tried to ban the FEDERATION and stop its Parchar and activities, now some in the Management Committee at a Gurdwara is Slough think they can do India's dirty business, where the Indian Government has itself failed.

The programme will go ahead as planned with the speakers and Jatha as shown and determined by the Sikh Federation (UK).

SIKH FEDERATION (UK) Panthic conference to honour Shaheed Satwant Singh Ji and Shaheed Kehar Singh Ji Sunday 6 January 2013 (11am-1.30pm) Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Sheehy Way, Slough, SL2 5SS Arambh A

Scroll on Sangat TV today has been publicising the event. One of the few Singhs who is a member of the Management Committee at Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Slough and supports the Sikh Federation (UK) spoke

Most disappointing that the Sikh Channel has not even started the scroll, let alone produce and show a Promo. Initially the Sikh Channel confirmed it would start the scroll on the evening on Friday

If you live in or around Slough and will be at Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Slough on Sunday 30 December let the Management Committee know what you think of the Promo. Some of them (i.e Joginder Singh Bal) are saying they do not like the Promo and want it stopped. The Management Committee need others to give their views about the Promo, especially if they like the Promo. Please do this tomorrow so there is no question of the Promo being stopped.

Watch Quami Masle on Sangat TV tonight from 7-8pm (UK time) that will cover the event in Slough next week.

On Quami Masle on Sangat TV last night much of the following information below was shared in Punjabi with viewers. Some have requested it be shared online.

This is largely taken from http://1984tribute.com/Jhujaroo Singhs n Singhnia/Bhai Satwant Singh.html, which in turn is taken from www.neverforget84.com.

During the Quami Malse programme it was also shared with viewers that in the last few days it has been reported in the Times of India that Indias National Investigation Agency (NIA) is seeking the aid of the UK authorities in investigating certain Sikh NGOs that promote NEVER FORGETING 1984 and no doubt therefore promote obtaining justice and securing a SIKH HOMELAND.

Shaheed Bhai Satwant Singh and Shaheed Bhai Kehar Singh

When we grew up we have often seen pictures of Shaheed Bhai Satwant Singh Agwan, Shaheed Bhai Beant Singh Malowan and Shaheed Bhai Kehar Singh Mustafabad. These were the Jhujaroo Babbar Sher (Freedom Fighting Mighty Lions) who kept the integrity, pride and Khalsa tradition in our History. History dictates that whoever looked at Amritsar, with an evil eye to destroy it, such as Massa Rangarh, Ahmad Shah Abdali, General Dyer and Indira Gandhi, they themselves are destroyed.

Shaheed Bhai Satwant Singh was born in 1962 in the house of Sardar Tarlok Singh and Sardarni Pyar Kaur, in the village Agwan Kurd, district Gurdaspur. Village Agwan Kurd is only 3km from the India Pakistan border. Bhai Sahib had 2 elder brothers, Gurnam Singh and Waryam Singh, and a younger brother and sister, Swaran Singh and Ranjit Kaur. Bhai Sahib was educated to a higher secondary level at Dera Baba Nanak School.

In 1981, Bhai Satwant Singh moved from Burail jail in Uttar Pradesh to a new posting with the Delhi Armed Police. He was a very handsome young man, and an excellent sharp shooter. As a result he was later posted to the personal protection force of the Prime Minister. From the period of 1981 to 1984, he was the personal bodyguard of Indira Gandhi.

In 1983, Sarabjit Kaur, the wife of his elder brother Waryam Singh, asked her Massi (maternal aunt) for the hand in marriage of her daughter, Surinder Kaur, for Satwant Singh. Soon both of them were engaged. Both families had scheduled the wedding in 1984, but due to the fact that Satwant Singh could not get holidays, it was delayed.

In June 1984, the Sikh Nation witnessed the power-drunk Brahmin Indira Gandhi send the Indian Army, on the sacred day of the Shaheedi-Purab of Sahib Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji, to attack Sri Darbar Sahib, Sri Akal Takht Sahib, and 40 more historical Gurdwaras. They used many battalions of Army and tanks, and attacked the thousands of innocent pilgrims who came to pay respects of the Shaheedi of Guru Ji, and many, many Sikh Sangat, Singhs, Singhnia, children and elders became Shaheed. Sri Akal Takht Sahib was desecrated by tanks. This army action by Indira Gandhi burned in the heart of every Sikh. It was like a great challenge had been placed before the Sikh Nation.

The Sikh Nation was extremely angry at the action. As well as the genocide, Sri Harimandir Sahib had been dishonored, Sri Akal Takht Sahib had been desecrated. The times of Massa Rangarh had returned, and the Sikh Nation required a Bhai Sukha Singh and Bhai Mehtab Singh.

Bhai Beant Singh Malowan went to see some of his relatives. His uncle (Phuffer ji) was called Kehar Singh and was very knowledgeable of Sikh philosophy. Beant Singh was in a state of shame, mixed with anger and depression. He asked, Phuffer ji, will Waheguru send a Sukha Singh and Mehtab Singh to avenge this sin of desecration of Sri Darbar Sahib? While handing him a book on Sant Jarnail Singh Bindranwale, his uncle replied, Do not grieve, if you have love with Sikhi, and then learn that giving your head and taking a head for Sikhi are equal. After all, someone has to be the sons of Sukha Singh and Mehtab Singh. They took Khande de Pahul Amrit from Sahib Sri Guru Gobind Singh, and then went and took the head of Massa Rangarh to stop the desecration of Sri Darbar Sahib and became legends in Sikh History. We need to remember them, and become like them.

These words from his uncle were like a spear in his heart. Now Bhai Beant Singh was looking for a companion who would sacrifice all to avenge the action on Sri Darbar Sahib. Eventually Beant Singhs eye fell on Satwant Singh, who was in Indira Gandhis protection force with him. When he carefully approached Satwant Singh, the young Singh responded Elder brother, for this sacred task, not only this life, but even if I have to sacrifice several lives, I would to kill a brutal murderer like Indira Gandhi!

First Beant Singh and Satwant Singh wanted to see with their own eyes what Indira Gandhi had done in Punjab, and at Amritsar. The three Singhs shocked at the scene at Sri Akal Takht Sahib, made their minds up and went to Sri Darbar Sahib and did Ardaas, Oh Akaal Purakh, give us strength!

After seeing the state of Sri Darbar Sahib, both Satwant Singh and Beant Singh returned to Delhi back to their duty. On 24th October 1984, Beant Singh and Satwant Singh took Amrit at a Gurdwara in Delhi. Neither were particularly knowledgeable on Gurbani, but Operation Blue Star and the legend of Sukha Singh and Mehtab Singh were foremost in their mind. This is what led them to take the blessing of Amrit.

Satwant Singh always had the late shift, and Beant Singh always had the early shift. They had to work out a way to both be on duty together. On 31st October, Satwant Singh faked a stomach bug, and swapped duties with another guard. Now they had to decide how to do the task. They decided the best time was when Indira Gandhi was doing her walkabout.

On the morning of 31st October, 1984 at 9am as Indira Gandhi walked from her house to her office at Safardajung Road. Bhai Beant Singh shot her 5 times with his service revolver. Bhai Satwant Singh at the same time lifted his Thompson Stengun and shot 28 bullets. Seeing Indira Gandhi fall, all of her PAs and ministers ran for their lives. The Indo-Tibetan Border Police commandos, who also guarded the grounds would not come close. Bother Singhs shouted Bole So Nihal, Sat Sri Akaal!!.

The Singhs shouted, We have done what we needed to, now you can do what you have to. Then both placed their weapons on the floor. Only then did the other guards come and arrest them. Both Singhs were taken to a room, while they waited for a senior officer to interrogate them. While waiting the commandos started swearing at the Singhs. Not tolerating this, Bhai Satwant Singh slapped the commando, and a struggle ensued, in which Satwant singh grabbed the commandos handgun. The other commandos started shooting at the Singhs. Bhai Beant Singh died there from gunshot wounds. Bhai Satwant Singh was seriously injured.

On arrival of a senior officer, Bhai Satwant Singh was taken to hospital. The officers wanted to know who else was part of the conspiracy. They did not know that these Singhs were acting alone because of the attack on Sri Darbar Sahib, Sri Akal Takht Sahib, and the 40 Gurdwaras, the Sikh genocide of Singhs, Singhnia, children and elders, and the legend of 6th June 1740, when Sukha Singh and Mehtab Singh took revenge on Massa Rangarh. The Government had saved Bhai Satwant Singhs life, but intentionally did not remove one bullet which was lodged near his spine continuously causing him great pain. Despite this and other interrogation torture, Satwant Singh always maintained that there was no conspiracy, and the two were acting alone. He said, This is our Khalsa tradition to avenge those who try to desecrate our holy places. We were happy to take this task. The Sikh Nation will be proud of us.

The Government did not accept this, and took two innocent Sikhs, Kehar Singh and Balbir Singh and framed them with the conspiracy in the assassination case. They were both jailed. Stawant Singh and Keher Singh were sentenced to death.

Bhai Satwant Singh was kept in Tihar jail in Delhi. His family and his fiancé, Bibi Surinder Kaur were only allowed to meet him 3 times. The bullet near his spine was still causing him great pain. The authorities would not allow doctors to see him. So one day he used his own finger nail to cut his skin and remove the bullet. After the bullet was removed, he regained his health and was in a state of Chardi Kala!

The authorities witnessing his better health and shining face, thought of new methods to affect him and his family. They stopped his fiancé from visiting him, stating that she can only visit once they have married. Bibi Surinder Kaur decided she would marry a photo of Satwant Singh, so that they could not use this excuse. Their relatives were unhappy with this decision. Bhai Satwant Singhs father, Sardar Tarlok Singh stated, Dear daughter, we will marry you to our youngest son Swaran Singh. The Khalsa Panth has had to deal with this brutal Indian Government. How can you ever expect any justice from such a brutal regime? Even courts are just pawns in the hands of Rajiv Gandhi. There is no hope that Satwant Singh will ever be free! Bibi Surinder Kaur replied, Bapu Ji, a woman only ever loves one man. I have already accepted Satwant Singh as my beloved husband. He is my husband, and I am his wife. That is how it shall remain. The brother of Satwant Singh, will be my brother. Bibi Surinder Kaurs father, Sardar Virsa Singh said, Daughter, if you do not change your decision to marry the photo of Satwant Singh, then I will commit suicide by taking poison!

Bibi Surinder Kaur replied, Dear Father Ji, Gurbani states, Marran Lekiaee Mandal Mae Ayee, every person has their death written by Akaal Purakh Waheguru before they are born on this earth. Waheguru has already written your last breath, and in the same way the decision on my marriage to Satwant Singh cannot change either. If it is written that he is going to die by hanging, then that will happen also. I am ready to face whatever comes my way in the future. Until my last breath, I will never let any stain come on respect due to the dastar of Satwant Singh, your dastar father, and the dastar of my father-in-law.

It was now the year 1988, the role of Sri Akal Takht Jathedar was held by the Bhai Jasvir Singh Rode. Due to the fact that Bibi Surinder Kaur would not change her mind to marry the photo of Satwant Singh, both families decided to take her to the Jathedar so he could convince her. Jasvir Singh said to her, Bibi, do not rush to make such a big decision. There is no hope that the authorities will not give Satwant Singh a sentence of hanging. So do not make such a big life decision, without thinking it through.

Bibi Surinder Kaur replied, Singh Sahib Ji, you are right. The authorities will give Satwant Singh the hangmans noose. Both our families had decided to marry me and Satwant Singh. Due to Satwant Singh not getting holidays, the wedding was delayed at the last moment. However if Satwant Singh killed Indira Gandhi after our marriage, then he would have been sentenced to hanging as well. I, as Satwant Singhs wife would have had to see every hard time in the future. My husband, Satwant Singh did a great and brave task! The integrity of the Sikh Nation, its dastar, was ripped off by Indira Gandhi and she stamped on it with her feet in June 1984. My husband took the dastar of the Sikh Nation and replaced it on its head. Even in my worst dreams, I could never turn my back on such a great man. It can never happen! I have accepted Satwant Singh as my husband. I will never let a stain come on his Dastar. I will spend my whole life as the widow of Satwant Singh!

Akal Takhat Jathedar Bhai Jasvir Singh Rode said to both fathers of Satwant Singh and Bibi Surinder Kaur, that due to the strength of will of Bibi Surinder Kaur, we should allow her to marry the photo of Satwant Singh, in the presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

According to the hukam of Singh Sahib, on 2nd May 1988, Satwant Singhs father, Bapu Tarlok Singh, his mother, elder brother and wife, left their house with a picture of Satwant Singh for the house of Sardar Virsa Singh. In the presence of Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Bibi Surinder Kaur married the photo of Satwant Singh. In the afternoon, the Doli of Bibi Surinder Kaur left the residence of Sardar Virsa Singh for the house of Bhai Satwant Singh.

Every court in the land, only gave the sentence that Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi had wanted. In the Supreme Court, Bhai Satwant Singh made a statement. He said, Let any part of my body, after my Shaheedi, be removed and used by anyone who may need. However if you need my eyes, let the authorities tell my parents. I have no hatred for any Hindu, Muslim, Christian, neither hatred for any religion. After my Shaheedi, let no Sikh throw any rock at any Hindu. I am not in favor of any retaliation or bloodshed over my Shaheedi. If we do create bloodshed, then there is no difference between us and Rajiv Gandhi. I am proud of the task that I did! I do Ardaas in front of Waheguru! If I am blessed with a human life, then give me a death of the brave when I am hanged. Forget one life, if I could I would give up a thousand lives to kill dushts like Indira Gandhi, and laugh as I become Shaheed by hanging. His lawyer, Sardar Bhupinder Singh Sodhi was the last to meet Satwant Singh in Tihar jail. Sodhi said, Beloved Satwant, I am so sorry I was unable to save you from the death sentence. Now this is the last time we will ever meet. The lawyer said as he became emotional.

Sardar Satwant Singh replied, Vakeel Sahib, you should be making me strong. We will meet again. Promise me you will fight my case next time as well! Bhupinder Singh Sodhi replied, Pyare Satwant, I do not understand what you are saying? All your appeals have failed. Tomorrow morning, 6th January, at 6am, both you and Kehar Singh will be hanged. Satwant Singh replied, Vakeel sahib, whenever Waheguru gives me a human life, I will once again destroy the enemies of the Sikh Nation like Indira Gandhi. The again you will come and fight my case. Those who believe in truth and human rights, will always have to fight these brutal regimes. I will keep taking births! I will keep killing dushts! You will keep meeting me!

Seeing Satwant Singh in such Chardi Kala, lawyer Bhupinder Singh Sodhi says, Pyare Satwant, Great are you, Great is your Sikhi, so blessed am I who was able to fight a case of a Lionheart, brave warrior such as you. Waheguru Ji has blessed me just to have the darshan of you. Any nation that has warriors like you, Satwant Singh, brave, mard, soormas. That Nation can never be controlled, intimidated or suppressed.

On 6th January 1989, it was raining. Nature was giving Bhai Satwant Singh and Bhai Kehar Singh a blessing, like one gives a garland around a neck. The thoughts of the whole Sikh Nation were with Bhai Satwant Singh and Bhai Kehar Singh. They had taken this most important task, and with it all this heartache had come on them and their families. Both were in Chardi Kala as they walked towards the noose. It was like the blessings of the whole Sikh Nation were with them as they walked.

In the end, on 6th January 1989, early at 4am, the authorities walked them towards the noose, their voices could be heard from outside the jail, shouting, Bole So Nihal ! Sat Sri Akaal! Then a few moments silence. As both of them stepped forward and kissed the hangmans noose, a very heavy rainfall started.

Just as the British had done with Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru. Their bodies were taken to Ferozpur, and cremated on the banks of the Satluj River. Similarly, the Indian Government did not hand over the bodies of Shaheed Satwant Singh and Shaheed Kehar Singh to their next of kin. Their bodies were cremated within Tihar jail. When the cruel authorities started cremating the bodies, the rain suddenly stopped. Nature was doing its bit to respect the Shaheeds. As the bodies burned, the authorities did not have the heart to hand them back to the families. The lawyer, Sardar Bhupinder Singh Sodhi said to the authorities, I can understand you have hatred for those spirits who killed Indira Gandhi, but how can you even have hatred for their corpses?

Then to further insult the Shaheeds, the authorities dreamed up another stunt. The last wish of both Shaheed Satwant Singh and Shaheed Kehar Singh was that their ashes be taken to Sri Kartarpur Sahib. However the Police forced the families of these two Shaheeds into jeeps and vans and drove them to Hardwar. Throughout the whole journey to Hardwar, it rained heavily. Then at gunpoint giving the families no choice, the final ardas for the Shaheeds was done. Just as the Ardaas began, the rain stopped. It was like nature was also paying respect to the Shaheeds. Bhai Satwant Singhs father, Bapu Tarlok Singh, and the son of Bhai Kehar Singh, Sardar Rajinder Singh, poured the ashes in to the river at Hardwar.

The thoughts of the whole Sikh Nation are with Bhai Satwant Singh and Bhai Kehar Singh. The brutal Indian regime may have killed Bhai Satwant Singh and Bhai Kehar Singh, but in the hearts of all Sikhs, they will forever live. They are immortalized in paintings on the walls of Sikh Gurdwaras, and they have recorded their names in the Volumes of Sikh History. They were the modern day Bhai Sukha Singh and Bhai Mehtab Singh.

Bibi Surinder kaur passed away a few years ago from cancer. She was widely respected in the Panth for the dedication with which she stayed with Bhai Satwant Singh.

There was a possibility that the Management Committee at Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Slough may have reacted negatively today in the Diwan Hall to the Promo on Sangat TV. However, the Stage Secretary confirmed to the Sangat that the Akhand Paath Sahib would go ahead as announced.

It appears only two or three Management Committee members were not happy with the Promo and the others were either happy or content with the Promo or realised they could not have it changed.

This has only been possible as the Management Committee has been kept under pressure.

The pressure will need to be maintained leading up the Akhand Paath Sahib on Friday 4 January and on Sunday 6 january itself as the Management Committee may go back on what they agreed (allbeit verbally) that ALL speakers and Jathas to appear on stage on Sunday 6 January will be determined by local Sikh Federation (UK) sewadars.

Please turn up in large numbers for the Arambh of the Akhand Paath Sahib Ji on Friday 4 January at around 9.30am and on Sunday 6 January when the main programme will be delivered by the Sikh Federation (UK) between 11am and 1.30pm.

Most disappointing that the Sikh Channel has not even started the scroll, let alone produce and show a Promo.

Initially the Sikh Channel confirmed it would start the scroll on the evening on Friday 28 December. On Saturday 29 December the Sikh Channel were chased and said it did not have space for the scroll as too many other programmes were being advertised, but it would be put on as soon as possible.

It is now Monday 31 December and many of the programmes previously advertised on the scroll have finished. It is hoped the event will be advertised as soon as possible or may be interpreted that the Sikh Channel does not want to highlight the Shaheedi of Satwant Singh Ji and Kehar Singh Ji.

Those in the Management Committee at Slough Gurdwara (who were also responsible for calling Dhunda) have thrown their last dice - tried to approach Sangat TV to get the Sikh Federation (UK) name and pictures removed from the Promo and also suggest Jagowala Jatha is not welcome.

Sangat TV referred them to Amrik Singh, Chair of the Sikh Federation (UK).

One of the Mangement Committee members has telephoned Amrik Singh and has been told in no uncertain terms that the Sikh Federation (UK) is a SIKH ORGANISATION (as opposed to an organisation from another faith) and the name will therefore not be removed from the Promo and also as the Management Committee agreed on Wednesday 26 December that ALL speakers and Jathas would be those specified by the Sikh Federation (UK) who had planned this event almost a year ago the Promo was consistent with this agreement.

The person who called said he personally did not object to the Sikh Federation (UK) or the speakers, although he did indicate his opposition to the Jagowala Jatha.

Amrik Singh in conclusion said:

'Give a clear message to those who do object to the Sikh Federation (UK) and the speakers and Jathas arranged to come along on Sunday 6 January (and agreed by the Management Committee) to come along and stop them from speaking and if we have 'hemut' we will speak'

Maybe it's a symptom of the underlying issues the Sikh Channel has with the Sikh Fed rather than anything else? Even if that is the case, the Sikh Channel should put those issues to the side and advertise this forthcoming programme.

Ths Sikh Channel were approached by a member of the Management Committee of the Gurdwara on behalf of the Committee to put the scroll on.

The Sikh Federation (UK) held its last programme on Sunday 23 December at Guru Nanak Parkash Gurdwara, Harnall Lane, Coventry and the Sikh Channel carried a scroll mentioning the Sikh Federation (UK), so this is why some are asking if the Sikh Channel has an issue with the Shaheedi of Satwant Singh Ji and Kehar Singh Ji. Ofccom is sometimes used as an excuse, but this should apply equally to both channels.

Latest on the Sikh Channel:

Yesterday (1 January 2013) a Gurdwara representative from Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Slough spoke to a couple of Sikh Channel employees and asked why the scroll sent on 23 December had not yet started.

The employees said yesterday the Sikh Channel charge £200 for something to appear on the scroll for a 2-week slot. This is the first time we have heard of such charges. Others who have had something put on the Sikh Channel scroll may wish to comment on their experiences.

Anyway we said there is less than a week to go so let us know what it will cost and we will pay.

We emailed them the scroll again this morning before 9am, although they said yesterday that they already have the scroll. It has still not appeared.

We also sent them this morning the slides for the Promo, sound track and wording for the message to be recorded in Punjabi, we also requested for live coverage on Sunday 6 January - they confirmed they had nothing else booked at the same time. Again they said there would be charges (£700-800, although they may charge slightly less than this) and we said we were willing to pay.

Watch the space if the Sikh Channel will show the scroll, Promo and provide live coverage for Sunday 6 January from Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Slough in return for a sizeable payment/donation?

If the Sikh Channel do not show the scroll, Promo and/or provide live coverage in return for money will we be justified to tell the Sangat in Slough and through other media who will be present about our experiences.

The behaviour to date by the Sikh Channel has been very unprofessional.

Latest twist was the Genral Secretary at the Gurdwara yesterday called Sangat TV studios and asked for the Promo for the Shaheedi programme not to be played. [it it is a fact was played very few times yesterday, hiopefully that will change today]. His mobile number was noted as well as the land line for the Gurdwara where the call(s) came from. Sangat TV called him back to confirm it was not a hoax call.

He was confronted with this information last night by local Singhs from the Sikh Federation (UK) and he said his mobile was mis-used while he was at the Gurdwara and may have left his phone in the Management Committee room.

He was told what Sarabjit Singh Banur had done earlier in the week in making calls to Sangat TV and Amrik Singh the Chair of the Sikh Federation (UK) had told him in no uncertain terms the message to give to those who opposed this programme and the Sikh Federation (UK) - See you on Sunday 6 January.

The General Secretary confirmed he did not have a problem with the Promo or the programme organised by the Sikh Federation (UK) and this information was relayed by the local Singhs of the Sikh Federation (UK) to Sangat TV. However, the General Secretary was asked to clarify his position directly with Sanagat TV.

This is the sort of dirty tactics the Sikh Federation (UK) local SInghs are having to deal with as regards this Shaheedi programme booked almost a year ago. Please try and be present for the Arambh of the Akhand Paath Sahib at around 9.30am tomorrow on Friday 4 January and on Sunday 6 January, when no doubt some of these elements will try and disrupt the programme in some way.
