Sikh history is rich and full of sacrifices made by Sikhs for the cause of freedom, justice and peace. Sikhs learnt their first lesson of sacrifice from the fifth Guru, Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji, who despite being completely innocent, peacefully endured all the tortures for a noble and a just cause and sacrificed his life willingly to uphold truth and righteousness. Sikhs learnt their lessons of martial arts from the sixth and the tenth Gurus. Sikhs learnt about sacrificing life to uphold the principle of freedom of religion from the ninth Guru, Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji, the savior of Hinduism.
Throughout the 18th century, Sikhs not only fought the oppressive Mughal Empire but also kept the foreign Afghan and Turk invaders in check by defeating them in the battlefield. During this struggle, the Sikhs had to go through seven holocausts and fought for their survival to come out as winners at the end. The result was Sikhs becoming absolute masters of Punjab and creating a vast empire where freedom, peace and justice prevailed. Due to treachery and betrayal of high ranking Hindu officials in Sikh-Anglo wars, the Sikh kingdom was annexed. However, Sikhs continued the freedom struggle by launching numerous freedom movements during the British rule. Behind all these struggles and sacrifices, there was only one cause, one reason and one desire and that was freedom.
From 1932-47, Sikhs were offered an opportunity to create a separate Sikh country nearly half a dozen times which was turned down every single time by the leaders for the reason of keeping India undivided. Congress assured Sikhs that all the necessary measures will be taken to ensure the safeguard the rights of the Sikhs and an autonomous area in the northern India will be established where Sikhs could freely thrive and practice their faith. Sikhs left nearly 175 of their holy places and all of their land and property in Pakistan during partition which rendered more than half of the Sikh population homeless and millions killed. Instead of appreciating and honoring the Sikhs for their long hard struggle and sacrifices, the Hindu leaders adopted a different policy. All of the promises were broken, specific laws were enacted to decimate the Sikh identity, religion and culture and majority Hindu rule was forced upon the Sikhs. A new era of Sikh suppression and massacres began in new India under the Hindu rule.
Ever since India gained independence, it has tried to suppress Sikhs politically, economically, socially and religiously. Interference in Sikh religious matters, denying the Sikhs their basic rights, discrimination in employment, attacking Sikh holy places, undermining and misrepresenting the Sikh identity in movies and educational institutions, infiltrating Sikh leadership and massacre of the Sikh youth are some of the measures implemented by the Indian government, Hindu officials and nefarious Hindu terrorist groups like RSS, Shiv Sena and Bajrang Dal. The oppression and injustice took a new turn when India attacked Darbar Sahib, the holiest place of Sikhs. Since then, thousands have been martyred through a systematic and planned genocide via fake encounters, tortures and disappearances. Sikhs continue to face the same suppressive measures and the biased Indian media has turned a blind eye to the Sikh situation. Sikhs have made numerous sacrifices to free themselves from the clutches of India. The goal of the Sikh nation is to establish a separate country, Khalistan, where they can enjoy the true glow of freedom.
Purpose of this website is to accurately present and justify the Khalistan movement academically, educate people about the freedom struggle of Sikhs and expose tyrannical, fascist and terrorist face of India. This web site is dedicated to all the Sikhs who sacrificed themselves for the freedom of the Sikh nation so that we all may live as true Sikhs with equality, dignity, self-confidence and pride in a place where Sikh generations can thrive, prosper and grow peacefully. The fight continues until full freedom is obtained and Khalistan becomes a reality.
