Sant Jarnail Singh Ji talks about the shaheedi of bhai sahib in their speeches. If you go to speech number 12 at the link posted above sant ji directly talks about the shaheedi of bhai sahib. You can feel that love and pain in their hearts as they talk. 

Also I found this clip of Giani Jangbir Singh head kathavachak at sachkhand sri hazur sahib talk about bhai sahib ji and how close they were to sant ji.

The Anandpur Sahib Resolution :

The Anandpur Sahib Resolution represents a pivitol point of Sikh history,  after many years of failed negotiations with the Govt, a list of minimum Sikh demands was drafted. It is interesting to note that it was drafted in 1973 and it was only after the Govt failed to accept these basic demands (many of which most States already enjoyed from 1947) that the Sikhs were forced into the Dharam Yudh Morcha (Agitation and protest).

Point by point demands found here: https://www.satp.org/satporgtp/countries/india/states/punjab/document/papers/anantpur_sahib_resolution.htm

(Excerpted from The Encyclopedia of Sikhism, Vol. 1, 1995, ed., Harbans Singh, page 133-141)

Anandpur Sahib Resolution, a frequently invoked document of modern Sikhism pronouncing its religious rule as well as its political goal. After having enjoyed power under chief ministers, Gurnam Singh and Parkash Singh Badal in the Punjab, newly demarcated in 1966, Sikhs are represented by their premier political party, the Shiromani Akali Dal, were able to capture only one seat at the elections to Indian parliament (1971) from among the 13 which were Punjab’s portion. In the Punjab Assembly elections which took place in March 1972 their tally was a mere 24 seats of a total of 117, and the Punjab Government passed in to the hands of the Congress Party, with Giani Zail Singh (later, President of India) as chief minister. This electoral debacle led to self introspection on the part of the Shiromani Akali Dal which appointed on 11 December, 1972, a sub-committee to reflect upon the situation and to proclaim afresh the programme and polices of the Dal. The 12 member committee consisted of Surjit Singh Barnala, Gurcharan Singh Tohra, Jiwan Singh Umranangal, Gurmeet Singh, Dr. Bhagat Singh, Balwant Singh, Gian Singh Rarewala, Amar Singh Ambalavi, Prem Singh Lalpura, Jaswinder Singh Brar, Bhag Singh, and Major General Gurbakhsh Singh of Badhani. The first meeting of the sub-committee took place at Amritsar. The venue then shifted to Chandigarh where the committee completed its task in ten successive meetings. Counsel was available to the sub-committee of the celebrated Sikh intellectual and thinker, Sirdar Kapur Singh, whose impress the draft emerging finally from its deliberations carried. The document was adopted unanimously by the working committee of the Shiromani Akali Dal at a meeting held at Anandpur Sahib, town sacred to Guru Gobind Singh, also reverenced by Sikhs as the birth place of the Khalsa. Since it was adopted at Anandpur Sahib (October 16-17, 1973) the resolution came to be known as the Anandpur Sahib Resolution. It was endorsed in the form of a succession of resolutions at the 18th All India Akali Conference of the Shiromani Akali Dal at Ludhiana on 28-29 October, 1978. An English version of the resolution is quoted below:

“Madam speaker, I rise to recognise the November 1984 anti-Sikh riots in India, also known as the Sikh massacre,” Congressman from Pennsylvania, Brendan Boyle said on the floor of the US House of Representatives on Tuesday.

The anti-Sikh riots had broken out after the assassination of then prime minister Indira Gandhi on 31 October, 1984, by her two Sikh bodyguards.

Boyle said today there are more than half-a-million Sikhs in the United States, who began coming here 130 years ago.

“The massacre against the Sikhs began in the capital territory of Delhi and a number of other Indian cities on November 1, 1984, following the assassination of Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi,” he said.

“The first Sikh life was taken early that morning. The violence that lasted three days resulted in thousands upon thousands of casualties in the Sikh community. In the aftermath of the massacre, it was reported that nearly 20,000 were forced to flee, leading to countless displaced people,” Boyle said.

“Madam speaker, remembering the Sikh massacre is a pivotal and historic step in the fight for justice and accountability for the families of all those victims,” said the Congressman.
