Was An Evil Man"
Extract from the exchange of
views with a prominent Journalist Rahul Singh:
rahul singh: rahul singh
i am sorry but this response to my question does
not make sense to me. i had asked why no important sikh leader
opposed bhindranwale. he was an evil man who promoted communal
violence. of course, indira gandhi foolishly promoted him, on
gyani zail singh's prompting, to divide the akalis. that was her
short-sighted political strategy. but he could have been opposed
by sikhs, which did not happen. even the senior akali leaders
and the high priests of the har mandir sahib were scared of him.
why? sincerely, rahul singh

First of all, nobody would like to
use for him such a language that Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale was

that is only to show the outer world.

But he (Bhindranwale) could have been opposed by Sikhs,
which did not happen, even the senior Akali leaders and the high
priests of the har mandir sahib were scared of him, why?”
or am not so experienced or badly trained politically and
leaglly to give a direct or straightforward answer that “the
senior Akali leaders and the high priests of the Durbar Sahib (Har
Mandir Sahib) were having hands in glove with the Indian central
agencies to get instructions from them in the case of
But, you are much experienced to
say so, to call the Akalis equally guilty for their silence or
for other reasons.
To my knowledge, leaving aside the

was on papers then, no Akali leader was allowed to visit police
stations where Sikhs were being inhumanly tortured, eliminated

The sacrifice of Sant Jarnail Singh
Bhindranwale would never be out of the Sikh history in the
context of independent India.
The life story of Sant Jarnail
Singh Bhindranwale is a very painful part of Indian history and
nobody could forget it. It shall always remind all the
unanswered questions of planned Sikhs Genocide in independent
India and to Know India!
