Bhai harjinder singh jinda bhai sukhdev singh sukha tracked down the general of the indian army (responsible for operation bluestar) in puna whilst he was driving home from the grocery store. They fired shots directly into his head as they pulled up beside him in their motorcycle killing him instantly.
Bhai Harjinder Singh Jinda and Sukhdev Singh Sukha are two martyrs of 20th century Sikh history. They turned the tide of Indian History and exposed the modern Indian pseudo-democracy and caste based Brahmanical Indian constitution.
Sukhdev Singh and Harjinder Singh stood for the truth and accepted the Sikh historical tradition of acting against enemies of the Sikh Nation. They repeated history and proved that the Sikh spirit of the past is alive and well in the present. They are part of the new chapter of ongoing Sikh history. In the 18th century Bhai Mehtab Singh and Bhai Sukha Singh killed Massa Ranghar, who disregarded the sacredness of Darbar Sahib and used the holy site for his personal recreation and entertainment. The actions of these two men was a signal to those who disregard the sacredness of Sikh shrines. The Khalsa of the past and of the future will always protect itself from its hostile enemies.
In the 20th century, the Indian State and underground inhumane Brahmanical forces attacked Darbar Sahib and other Sikh Gurudwaras throughout India. The entire Indian political apparatus embarked on a massive terrorist campaign against the Sikhs and became responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent Sikh men, women and children.
At this point in Sikh history, Bhai Harjinder Singh Jinda and Bhai Sukhdev Singh Sukha took action to insure that the Sikhs who died, did not die in vain. They knew the Indian State, who openly terrorized its own citizens, would never mete out justice to the Sikhs. In today’s modern world, the Indian State continues to justify the massive planned killing of innocent Sikhs. Perhaps the modern world is prepared to allow State sponsored terrorism, however, the Khalsa is not.
In the spirit of the Sikhs of the 18th century, Harjinder Singh and Sukhdev Singh stood and claimed justice in a hostile environment; fully aware of the consequences of their actions. They assasinated General A.S. Vaidya in Pune. General Vaidya was the Commander of the Indian army in June 1984 and put into action the State’s terrorist attack against the Darbar Sahib and other Sikh Gurudwaras.
Most Hindu fundamentalist, anti-national and extremist organizations gave full support to the army and distributed sweets to the army after it pillaged and destroyed the Akal Takht and the Darbar Sahib complex. This was a black day for the Sikh Community. On this day Hindu fundamentalist organizations repeated history. The first time the Rashtriya Swamsewak Sangh (RSS) distributed sweets was after the killing of Mahatma Gandhi by RSS activist Nathu Ram Godsey and then in June 1984 they shared sweets with the Indian army for their attack on the Sikhs.
The Government’s actions against the Sikh Nation compelled many to pick up arms and defend their faith and lives. They now knew that the State would never treat them as citizens but instead as unwanted second class inhabitants, inhabitants who continue to resist assimilation into the Hindu majority. The Khalsa takes inspiration from Gurbani and Sikh history. Guru Gobind Singh wrote in the Zafarnama: “When all peaceful means to resolve a crucial problem fail, it is justified to wield the sword.”
Bhai Sukha and Bhai Jinda took arms in light of Gurbani. They died for the Sikh faith and Sikh homeland. They are men of their word. Both of them had no fear of death. They had won death. They shared sweets with each other and jail staff after the Magistrate pronounced their death sentence. They fully respected the Magistrate’s decision and accepted the consequences of their actions.
These men were not fighting against any single person or religion. They stood up against the Brahmanical forces that had created divisions between the people, killed innocent people and encouraged injustice. They revived the Sikh tradition of insuring justice. They were full of faith in Guru Granth Sahib and declared that our Nation is Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. We should establish Khalsa Raj on the basis of Guru Granth Sahib.
