Warriors of Faith

Baba Maha Singh Ji Mataur (Bapu Ji)

When Guru Gobind Singh ji Maharaj created Khalsa Panth, Army of Akaal purakh, Maharaj created it with Baani and Shastar. While Baani was for spirituality, to attain closeness to Waheguru, to win over the vikaars inside the mind, to purify heart and be truthful, honest, humble and pure, Shastars were given to defend Dharam, the poor and helpless. This is the path which has been given by Satguru Maharaj to his Khalsa Panth, path of Bhagti-Shakti, of Piri and Miri.

             Sant Giani Kartar Singh Ji Khalsa, 13th Jathedar of Damdami Taksal was blessed by Guru Gobind Singh ji Maharaj to re-start the Shaheedi parampara to create Khalsa Raaj. Under Santji’s guidance, a group of Singhs was being readied to wage Dharamyudh in future, who would take up shastars and fight for freedom of Panth. Singhs like Bhai (Sant Giani) Jarnail Singh ji, Bhai Thaara Singh, Bhai Gurbachan Singh Manochahal, Bhai Dalbir Singh Abhyaasi, Bhai Aroor Singh, Bhai Gurdev Singh Usmaanvala  were part of this group. On the other hand Bhai Maha Singh ji and Bhai Dalbir Singh ji were ordered by Mahapurakhs to increase their Naam-Baani-Saadhna so that Baani read by them could help the Singhs in struggle. Shakti comes with Bhagti, Tej comes with Naam and Naam-Baani is the source of a Sikh’s power. Only those who have Naam Baani di Kamaaii can make a real change in society.  Walking on Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s path of Bhagti-Shakti, Santji asked Bapu Maha Singh ji Mataur and Bhai Dalbir Singh Ji Abhyaasi to do 101 Japji Sahib paths everyday, not for personal benefit but for Charhdi kala of Khalsa Panth and Jhujaroo Singhs. Bapu Maha Singh ji and Bhai Dalbir Singh ji, following bachans of Mahapurakhs started this rigorous Jaap and amazingly, both Gursikhs lived with this Nitnem till last day of their life. Bhai Dalbir Singh ji attained Shaheedi on 9th June 1984 fighting Indian Army while Bapu ji went to sachkhand in January 2011.

Babaji came to Taksal during time of Vadde Mahapurakh Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa. Babaji attained such a high awastha that all the Singhs of Taksal, including Jathedar Sant Kartar Singh ji, Sant Jarnail Singh ji used to respect him.

  When Government was about to arrest Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa in September 1981, after murder of Lala Jagat Narain, Santji called Baba Thakur Singh ji and Baba Maha Singh ji to his room and asked their views on an issue. Both asked Santji about the matter and Santji said ‘ Its my nitnem after being Mukhi of Taksal that I go every morning Amritvela and have Ishnaan in Amrit Sarovar, after that I do parkarma and come back to my Aasan. Now I’ll be arrested and I’ll be in police custody. If I do this now, will it be against Maryada and Gurmat?’

Both Mahapurakhs advised Santji not to break the Nitnem and go for Ishnaan to Darbar Sahib as there was nothing against Gurmat in it. Bapu Maha Singh ji said that If you were doing this for something else, then it would have been against Maryada, but now its all about Maharaj and Prem and where there is Prem, everything is justified. 
(This incident has been mentioned here to tell the Sangat the amount of respect and trust Sant ji had in Baba Thakur Singh Ji and Baba Maha Singh ji and also spiritual prowess and power of Sant Giani Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa.)

     During Operation Bluestar, Army surrounded Gurudwara Gurdarshan Parkash, Headquarters of DamDami Taksal at Mehta Chowk. Baba Thakur Singh Ji had been asked to remain Gupt by Santji and Baba Maha Singh Ji Mataur was looking after sewa at Taksal. When Tanks surrounded Gurudwara, Army officers asked all the Singhs to come out and surrender. Babaji knew the Army would then bombard the Gurudwara Sahib and demolish it. Baba Maha Singh Ji Mataur sat down near Nishan Sahib and asked the Army to do what they want, either shoot them, bomb them o whatever, but they would not come out of Gurudwara Sahib. There were only handful of Singh at Taksal and they also came and sat with Babaji. Villagers also came hearing the news and sat down near Babaji. Babaji started Chaupai Sahib Jaap near Nishan Sahib and asked the Army to do what the wanted to do. It was the Partaap of Baani and Babaji’s Kamaai and simran that although Army kept a Ghera of Taksal for three days, but Tanks didn’t enter Gurudwara Sahib nor was a shot fired towards Maharaj. The Army officer, leading the attack was so amazed by Babaji’s Darshan and words that He took back his troops without firing a bullet.
Baba Thakur Singh ji came back to Mehta Chowk in August 1984. Here Baba Thakur Singh Ji requested Baba Maha Singh ji to do Ardas to Maharaj that Indira be punished as soon as possible. Babaji did Ardas at feet of Guru Granth Sahib ji Maharaj and within 40 days, Bhai Satwant Singh and Bhai Beant Singh Ji finished Indira. Baba Thakur Singh ji distributed sweets that day and also pledged to look after families of Singhs who punished Indira Gandhi. Deepmaala was also done at Gurudwara Gurdarshan Parkash.

Later during Freedom movement, SSP Gobind Raam was brutally killing Singhs and families of Jhujaroo Singhs. Inhuman torture was inflicted upon Bibiya and small children.  This pained Baba Thakur Singh Ji much and Babaji again asked Baba Maha Singh ji to do Ardas to Maharaj that ‘’Maharaj kirpa karo, Gobind Ram di jarh patti jaaye’’.
Babaji did Ardas and within days, Baba Jugraaj Singh ji (KLF) blew up Gobind Ram, but interestingly, His only son was shot dead a few days before his death by Singhs.  Gobind Ram’s root had been uprooted from this world; Waheguru had heard Ardas of his beloved Mahapurakhs.

          After divisions in ranks of Jhujaroo Jathebandis, Baba Thakur Singh ji sensed the future of movement. Panth was going through most turbulent period and bloody period and Babaji asked all the Singhs to do Naam Kamaai and Baani Jaap for Charhdi Kala of Panth. Baba Maha Singh ji used to remain immersed in Naam Baani for hours at length.

   After Baba Thakur Singh Ji Khalsa Ji left for Sachkhand on 24th December 2004,  enemies of Panth colluded and took over DamDami Taksal’s Headquarters, Gurudwara Gurdarshan Parkash and going against bachans of Baba Thakur Singh ji, did Shaheedi di Ardas of Sant Baba Jarnail Singh ji Khalsa. All the senior Singhs of Taksal were insulted and forced to leave Mehta Chowk. Baba Thakur Singh ji had already told what would happen after them and they had ordered Singhs to be peaceful and calm, as justice would be done one day. Following Babaji’s bachans, Singhs left Taksal and went to different places. Baba Maha Singh Ji Mataur also came to his house near Chandigarh and continued his Baani Jaap here till his last breath.

Babaji’s Nitnem was as follows.
Panj Baaniya da Jaap
101 Japji Sahib de Paath and Beant Baaniya of Guru Nanak Dev ji
Baani of Guru Angad Dev ji
Baani of Guru Amardaas ji
Baani of Guru Raamdas ji
Baani of Guru Arjan Dev ji
Baani of Guru Teg Bahadur ji
Baani of Guru Gobind Singh ji Maharaj.
( It was Babaji’s Nitnem to do few chosen Baaniya of each Satguru ji everyday and this routine continued till his last day)

Living according to Bachans of Sant Giani Kartar Singh Ji Khalsa, Baba Maha Singh Mataur lived a life of Baani. His inner self had become One with Maharaj’s Baani, Baani Saroop. Guru lived in those Mahapurakh’s heart, in his bachans. Santji had said that while Singhs fight in battlefield, you do Naam Kamaai to help them spiritually and Babaji lived according to bachans of Mahapurakhs. He said many times to Baba Thakur Singh ji that I also want to attain Shaheedi, but Babaji always said Babaji your sewa is to read Baani. Its with Kamaii and Ardas of Gursikhs like you that one day Khalsa Panth will attain Freedom and Charhdi Kala once again.

Kotaan Kot Parnaam to Brahmgianis like Baba Maha Singh Ji Mataur.

Shaheed Jathedar Gurdev Singh Ji Kaunke

Bhai Gurdev Singh ji Kaunke was a Charhdi kala Gurmukh, Diamond of Damdami Taksal and Loyal soldier of Khalsa Panth. Bhai sahib was appointed Working Jathedar of Akaal Takhat sahib in January 1986 and he did this sewa till his Shaheedi. He was the one who went out in Rural Punjab in that dark period and awakened Sikh masses by doing Katha of Guru Granth Sahib ji and Sri Dasam Granth. Areas of Ludhiana,Moga,Jagraon and Faridkot transformed considerably. Malwa belt of Punjab saw a revolution and there were Amrit Sanchars on daily basis in which hundreds used to tak Amrit and become Khalsa. Bhai Sahib had a highly pure character, high Gursikhi jeevan, Awastha and humble attitude. Thousands were inspired by his magnetic personality, left drugs and patitpuna and became Gursikhs and part of Sikh movement.

                   Bhai Sahib ji woke up at 1am in the morning and his Nitnem continued till 8 am, and it was only after finishing his Nitnem that he used to eat or drink something. He did 25 Paath of Sukhmani Sahib and 101 Paath of Japji Sahib daily, apart from regular Nitnem of 7 Baaniya. Bhai Sahib had a very humble attitude, yet he was strong and firm in his beliefs and when times to show firmness came, he showed his Sipahi aspect aswell. His self was always imbued in remembrance of True Waheguru, and his eyes showed the ‘Naam-ras’ he had in his heart.

                    When Panthic committee declared State of Khalistan on 29th April 1986, CM of Punjab Barnala ordered his police to enter Darbar Sahib and arrest the Singhs. Bhai Sahib ji was in Parkarma that day, and Singhs requested him to leave the parkarma, but Bhai Sahib ji stayed on to maintain sanctity of Sri Darbar Sahib and Sri Akaal Takhat Sahib. Police arrested Bhai Sahib with scores of other Singhs and was taken to Haryana. Here Bhai Sahib refused to eat anything made in police canteen. When police saw Bhai Sahib’s resolve not to eat anything made by police, Lnagar was arranged from nearby Gurudwara. From here He was moved to Sangrur high security Jail. The Deputy Superintendent of Jail, Jagroop Sio was a chela of Narkdharis and hated Sikhs. He asked Bhai Sahib to remove his Gatra, which Bhai Sahib ji refused saying that As per the position of Jathedar of Akaal Takhat Sahib, he retained his right to keep his Kirpaan in Jail. Jagroop ordered constables to remove Bhai Sahib’s Kirpan, but constables didn’t go near Bhai Sahib. Jagroopa, maddened by anger, went to his Office and brought a pair of scissors and cut Bhai Sahib’s Gatra from behind. Bhai Sahib held his Kirpan in One Hand and with other, slapped Jagroopa on face so hard that he fell on floor. One gursikh constable delivered this news in every barrack of Jail, hearing which, all the Sikh prisoners started shouting slogans in favour of Jathedar ji. Singhs started hunger strike in Jail. Seeing situation slipping out of hands, Jagroop came to Jathedar ji, bowed his head at their feet and asked for forgiveness. Jathedar ji requested Singhs to finish the hunger strike and things became normal once again.

                         After some days, Jathedar ji was shifted to Nabha High security Jail. Here Bhai Jagjeet Singh Gill (KCF) was also lodged in a separate cell. While all the inmates were given few hours in a day to come out of their cell, meet with others and walk in Jail grounds, Bhai Jagjeet Singh wasn’t taken out. One day Jathedar ji saw Jagjeet Singh and asked the sentries why this Singh isn’t brought out of his cell. They said He is very dangerous Kharkoo, as he had freed Bhai Gurjant Singh Rajasthani  by attacking the police party when he was being taken to courts. Also He had killed guards in Sangrur Jail and escaped twice from Jail. Jathedar Gurdev Singh ji Kaunke, who saw every Sikh Jhujaroo as his Brother and Son, who had pain for every Sikh, who was being tortured in Jails of Punjab, asked the sentries to call Jail Superintendent. When Superintendent came, Jathedar ji asked him to open Bhai Jagjeet Singh’s cell so that he too can have some fresh air and take a walk or else stop taking Him (Jathedar ji) also from his cell. Superintendent opened the cell of Bhai Jagjeet Singh that very moment and asked the sentries to take him out for walk. Jathedar ji went ahead himself, and helped Bhai Jagjeet Singh get up and walk, supporting him with his hands. ( As Jagjeet Singh had been tortured badly and wasn’t in a situation to walk all by himself).  Such was Prem Piaar Jathedar ji had for Jhujaroos.

              Baba Thakur Singh Ji Khalsa, Kaarajkaari Jathedar of Damdami Taksal always went to Bhogs of Shaheed Singhs and helped them in every way possible.  Babaji used to say that These Singhs are dying for us, for our honour, and its our duty that we look after their families and children. Babaji had started a regular monthly sewa for thousands of Shaheed families. Jathedar Gurdev Singh Ji Kaunke always used to accompany Babaji to these samagams and stand with Jhujaroo Singhs in time of distress.

  Wassan Jaffarwal and Harinder Kahlo had accused Bhai Sahib ji once of being partial and taking sides. Bhai Sahib Ji summoned Harinder Kahlo, who refused to have said anything against Jathedar ji. The local media in Amritsar was embarrassed after Jathedar ji left Harinder Kahlo without any punishment. They gave to Jathedar a copy of signed statement by Wassan Jaffarwal wherein he had accused Jathedar Gurdev Singh Ji of being Partial and not doing his duty properly. Bhai Sahib ji summoned Jaffarwal to Akaal Takhat Sahib to seek clarification. Jaffarwal, being the sly fox he was, outrightly refused to have said ‘Anything’ against Bhai Sahib ji. Jathedar Gurdev Singh Kaunke brought out the letter from his pocket and showed it to Jaffarwal, who, seeing himself exposed started asking for forgiveness. Jathedar Gurdev Singh Ji Kaunke imposed ‘Tankhah’ on Jaffarwal and asked him to seek apology from Khalsa Panth, as he had tried to divide Panth with his statement. Jaffarwal played diplomatically and asked Jathedar and Khalsa Panth for apology and also finished his Tankhah. (Jathedar ji ordered other Jathebandis not to harm Jaffarwal after this peshi, as many Singhs had asked Bhai Gurdev Singh ji for permission to do ‘Sudhaai’ of Jaffarwal. This statement of Jaffarwal was the root of division which were seen in Jhujaroo Singhs later in movement.)

        Seeing his Parchar, popularity, influence and sewa, Jathedar Gurdev Singh ji Kaunke was arrested again in 1989 by SSP Sumedh Saini and tortured . Police saw him as ''Second Bhindranwala'' and feared his charisma. Later he had to be released as courts ordered Bhai Sahib’s release.

   Punjab police was adamant to finish Jathedar Gurdev Singh ji, as he was the one parcharak who had the charisma and ability to unite Khalsa Panth and take struggle forward.  On 20th December 1992, Bhai Sahib ji was arrested again and was tortured badly by Swaran ghotna, Harbhagwan sodhi and Gurdeep sio of Jagraon police. Bhai sahib was killed on 1st January 1993 and his body was thrown in River. Before his Shaheedi, his bones were broken, flesh pierced with hot iron rods and electric shocks were given to Singh Sahib ji, still he remained in Charhdi kala and took every torture on himself, with firm faith in Maharaj.

    People like Bhai Sahib and Baba Manochahal were true Jathedars of Akaal Takhat Sahib who served panth and fought for Panth till last breath.  It was jeevan of Gursikhs like Bhai Gurdev Singh Ji Kaunke (Jathedar Ji) that brought back memories of Akali Baba Phoola Singh ji back in Sikh conscience. Great Souls like Bhai Sahib come very rarely on this planet, and when they come, they leave foot marks for generations to come, which if followed, take nations to glory, honour and Freedom.

Shaheed Jathedar Baba Thaara Singh Ji

Damdami Taksal is the inheritor of True Khalsa spirit of Sewa-Simran-Sacrifice. It was a religious university run by Baba Deep Singh ji and Bhai Mani Singh ji, whose military wing was known as Shaheed Jatha and later as Misal Shaheedan. This was Taksal of Sant-Sipahis. After 1764, when Baba Gurbaksh Singh ji divided it in two parts, one Jatha was to preach Gurbaani and conduct Amrit Sanchar, while Military wing was to fight for Panth whenever need arose. From this Jatha of Sant-Sipahis came Generals, Sants and Sipahis such as Baba Taara Singh ji, Bhai Taru Singh ji, Nawab Kapoor Singh ji, Baba Naina Singh ji, Baba Phoola Singh ji , Giani Bhai Sant Singh ji and millions of others great souls.

Early Life

        Jathedar Baba Thaara Singh ji was born in 1924 in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. His earlier name was Dhian Singh. When Vadde Mahapurakh, Baba Gurbachan Singh ji did katha in Aurangabad, Dhian Singh was insired to take Amrit. After taking Amrit, his name was changed to Avtar Singh. Babaji got this name, Avtar Singh, inscribed on his left arm. Few weeks later, he joined Jatha and came to Punjab and started living in Taksal as Vidyarthi. Immersed in Naam-Sewa-Santhya, Babaji soon attained awastha of Gurmukh and became very close to Sant Baba Kartar Singh Ji Khalsa.

Baba ‘Thaara Singh’

Baba Thaara Singh ji (Bhai Avtar Singh ji) was basically from Maharashtra. There had been a Sikh Sant near Mumbai, Baba Thaahira Singh ji, whose Gurudwara still stands in Ulhasnagar. Sant Kartar Singh Ji Khalsa used to listen Saakhiya and Katha of Baba Thaahira Singh Ji’s Jeevan from Bhai Avtar Singh Ji. Everyday Santji would listen to Jeevan of Mahapurakhs and soon a time came, when Santji would call Bhai Avtar Singh  as ‘Thaahira Singh’.  Santji would say, ‘Avtar Singh, I haven’t had Darshan of those Mahapurakhs, but I see him within you when you narrate his jeevan’. And soon , Bhai Dhian Singh a.k.a Bhai Avtar Singh ji became Baba Thaara Singh Ji.
(After Bluestar, when Army was looking for Babaji’s body, they found it but when time to identify came, they got confused because on the left arm was written the name ‘Avtar Singh’. Army was confused for days when someone told them that it was actually Baba Thaara Singh’s body whose previous name was Avtar Singh).

Sewa In Taksal

          Sant Kartar Singh ji, 13th Jathedar of Taksal met an accident in 1977, and refused to get his hair cut for operation due to which he left his body. After him Sant Jarnail Singh ji was appointed Jathedar of Damdami Taksal by Baba Thakur Singh, Baba Thaara Singh ji and other Singhs of Taksal according to wish and Hukam of Sant Baba Kartar Singh Ji Khalsa. Santji had the mission of shaping Sikh panth’s destiny and reviving the Shaheedi spirit of Baba Deep Singh ji Shaheed in Panth.

                          It was at this time Santji left for Parchar in villages, cities of Punjab and rest of India. He appointed Jathedar Baba Thaara Singh ji for sewa of Gurudwara Gurdarshan Parkash(Headquarters of Taksal). He was incharge to look after Sewa, Santhya and other administrative duties at Taksal. Babaji along with Baba Thakur Singh ji was one of the senior most Singhs of Taksal who had come to Mehta chowk with Sant Kartar Singh ji. He did all the sewa with utmost devotion as Hukam of Guru Gobind Singh ji. Singhs of all Jathebandis had great respect for him due to his self-less sewa and high spiritual jeevan. He was also guide of warrior group of Taksal, which Sant Kartar Singh was creating under Sant Jarnail Singh ji, including Singhs like Baba Manochahal, Bhai Usmaan Singh ji, Bhai Dalbir Singh Abhyaasi and others. These very Singhs in future were to become great Shaheeds of Panth.

During Santji’s Bombay, Haryana and Delhi tour in 81-82, Babaji was doing Sewa at Mehta chowk. When Santji was arrested by Punjab police in 82, he appointed Baba Thaara Singh ji as incharge of Sewa at taksal. After he returned after 28 days, Santji started Sikhi Parchar with more determination and Bir-ras. Government was worried about Santji’s intentions, so it tried its best to stop Santji. But as it tried, Parchar grew stronger. There were attempts at Santji;s life, Pothis of Guru Granth Sahib ji, gutka Sahibs and other baani pothis were burnt by police in chando kala in Haryana, which deeply hurt Santji. He started giving a new shape to parchar, turning it into movement for Sikh rights and freedom.

It was at this time Government took the extreme step and one day arrested some Singhs of Taksal. During their hearing in court, Bhai Amrik Singh ji and Baba Thara Singh ji were sent by Santji to take care of Singhs and the case. As these Gurmukhs reached court complex, they too were arrested without any charges. When Santji heard about Bhai Sahib’s and babaji’s arrest, he was deeply pained. Santji was unwell that day and doctors had put him on glucose.Despite being unwell, Sant Jarnail Singh ji Khalsa reached with his Jatha at Akaal takhat Sahib on 18th July 1982 and did Ardas at feet of Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji. Santji declared Dharam yudh morcha that day whose aim was ‘’ not just to free Bhai Amrik Singh ji and Baba Thaara Singh ji but whole Sikh panth from shackles of Slavery’’! He did this Ardas also at Akaal Takhat sahib and vowed to continue the morcha till Khalsa Panth emerged victorious, till Fateh wasn’t achieved.

Morcha continued for many months and government, due to pressure of Panth dropped fake charges against Bhai Sahib and Babaji, and freed them from jail. But Santji was determined to take the morcha to its final mission, Freedom of Khalsa Panth. As the parchar grew and Sikh youth started taking amrit in thousands, there was a Sikh revival movement in Punjab under command of Sant Jarnail Singh ji Khalsa and Damdami Taksal. 33 Sikh Jathebandis supported Santji in this mission. As people said in 19th century, ‘’there is nothing as dangerous as a united Sikh nation’’! Indian government too feared the day Sikhs would smash its imperialist and fascist set-up in Punjab. Preparations to crush Sikh movement were started by Delhi and here in Amritsar, Santji too started preparing to defend the Dharam yudh morcha and Akaal takhat.


Defense positions were established in and outside Parkarma of Harimandir sahib. Important positions were set-up at Langar hall roof, Bunga Ramgarhia , Water tank, on Complex entrance from Langar, Dakhani Deorhi and Ghanta Ghar. These were to be the first resistance posts of Defenders. Baba Thaara Singh ji was given command of Langar Hall and Bunga Ramgarhia position. Bhai Amrik Singh Ji also stayed in this position till evening of 5th June. When the Indian Army attacked Darbar sahib complex on morning of 4th June 1984, around 50 Singhs defending these positions under Baba Thaara Singh ji gave a tough resistance and repulsed numerous attacks. Singhs held on to their defenses and forced invading army to retreat, until they brought in artillery guns and Tanks to destroy jhujharoo positions. It was on night of 4th june, that continuous bombing of jhujharoo positions by Guns and Tanks resulted in Shaheediya of many Singhs and all the morchas which were at an high altitude were destroyed. Baba Thaara Singh ji was on Langar roof with Singhs and had LMGs and other guns. But they were no match to artillery bombs and Tanks. This position too was demolished and many Singh attained Shaheedi. After the posts at Water Tank, Langar Roof and Bunga were demolished; Bhai Major Singh Nagoke and Bhai Dalbir Singh Abhyaasi went inside Bunga Ramgarhia and continued fighting till 9th of June.

Baba Thaara Singh ji, Bhai Bua Singh, Bhai Ajaib Singh Mahakaal and some other Jujaroos went inside Parkarma and took positions near Dukh Bhanjani Beri. Despite being wounded, Babaji continued to defend the eastern entrance of Darbar Sahib, from where Tanks were to be brought in. Whole night of 5th June, he held on to his position and kept fighting, with other great Singhs by his side. But Singhs had no reinforcements, no medical help, nothing to eat, no one to come to their rescue. It was a fight to finish. Babaji had a wireless conversation with Santji on 5th June Amrit vela and said his last Fateh to Santji and told Santji that He was going to attain Shaheedi. Santji’s eyes got wet with love and affection after hearing last words of Baba Thaara Singh ji, who along with Baba Thakur Singh ji had been a father-figure to Santji in Taksal. As Santji said his final Fateh to Buzurg Jathedar, who was 60 years old that time, Singhs gave out jaikaaras at Akaal takhat. Till now Indian army had launched a massive offensive to destroy the position of Baba Thaara Singh ji. As Singhs came under heavy gunfire, numerous bullets pierced Babaji’s chest, stomach and head. Baba Thaara Singh ji attained supreme Shaheedi at the feet of Guru Arjan Dev ji, near Dukh Bhanjani beri on Amrit Vela of 5th June. He was First Jathedar of Khalsa Fauj to attain Shaheedi in Operation Bluestar.

During his conversation with Santji on morning of 5th June, Babaji had said,’Santji, don’t forget you have done Ardas to free Khalsa Panth from Slavery. And being spiritual descendant of Baba Deep Singh ji, you have to fulfil this Ardas, for honour of Taksal and Panth’. Santji replied in positive and promised to Babaji that Morcha will continue till Fateh, no matter what happens.

And its our firm belief, with blood of Brahmgianis like Baba Thaara Singh ji and Bachans of Baba Thakur Singh ji, Khalsa Panth will definitely win this War of Freedom one day.

Sri Akaal ji Sahai.
