Bhai Inderjeet Singh Jammu

Aman Singh

Introduction

Bhai Inderjeet Singh Jammu
Shaheedi (martyrdom) is the lifeblood of a community. Shaheedi revives dying communities and creates the thirst for freedom. But martyrdom only goes only to blessed souls. A normal person is born, lives life and in the end dies. But a Shaheed chooses his own death and for the sake of his people, abandons a life of pleasure and goes on the path of the gallows. To give a selfless Shaheedi is perhaps the greatest task in the world. Very few warriors vow to become shaheeds.

This is the story of Bhai Inderjeet Singh Jammu.

Childhood

Yodha Bhai Inderjeet Singh Jammu was born on the 26th of January 1967. Bhai Sahib’s father was Bhai Gurcharan Singh Fauji and his mother was Bibi Amarjeet Kaur.

From a young age Bhai Inderjeet Singh started reciting Gurbani and at the tender age of 10 he started standing on Gurudwara stages where he would talk about Panthic issues and sing Kavitas about Jujharoo Singhs.

Bhai Sahib’s family lived in Jammu Kashmir’s mountainous parts, Batota area, in Guhadi village.

Bhai Inderjeet Singh was the eldest of all six brothers and sisters. Bhai Sahib finished 10th grade in a government secondary school in Santvari. After this Bhai Inderjeet Singh got admission at I.T.I Electrician College.

Even with all the pressures that come with studying Bhai Sahib still managed to attend many Gurmat Smagams.

Going to Amritsar

During Bhai Sahib’s studies he had heard about Sant Ji through various tapes which were being circulated at that time. After hearing Sant Ji’s speeches, Bhai Sahib decided to go to Amritsar.

When Bhai Sahib first reached Amritsar, he met Singhs from Ajnala. After spending some time with these Singhs, he was left at Baba Dayal Singh Lachmansar’s Dera. Bhai Inderjeet didn’t feel comfortable here and as a result he decided to go and have darshan of Sach Khand Sri Darbar Sahib. Bhai Sahib also wanted to have darshan of Sant Ji.

Bhai Inderjeet Singh Ji heard a lot about Sri Maan Sant Gyani Baba Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale from sangat he would meet who had had the darshan of Sant Ji.

Meeting Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale

When Bhai Sahib eventually met Sant Ji, they had a very simple conversation. Bhai Inderjeet Singh Ji asked Sant Ji if he could stay with him and the rest of the Singhs at Sach Khand Sri Darbar Sahib. Sant Ji agreed straight away.

When Baba Dayal Singh found out that Bhai Inderjeet Singh had met Sant Ji and had begun to stay with the jatha, he tried to become and obstacle between the jatha and Bhai Sahib. However, in the end Bhai Inderjeet managed to stay with the Singhs at Darbar Sahib.

Son of the Sikh Kaum

Bhai Sahib’s parents Bhai Gurcharan Singh Fauji and Bibi Amarjeet Kaur had not seen their son for a long time. They sent word to him that they wanted to see their son. Bhai Inderjeet Singh Ji told them that their son does not belong to them anymore. He is the son of the Sikh Kaum and he had decided to spend his whole life living under the feet of Guru Sahib’s sangat.

The Final Letter

A few days before the 1984 attack by the Hindustani Government on Sri Darbar Sahib, Bhai Inderjeet Singh wrote a final letter to his parents. In that letter Bhai Sahib mentioned many things including the fact that the Indian Army had surrounded Sri Darbar Sahib.

Bhai Sahib’s Seva during the 1984 Attack

During the attack General Shahbeg Singh Ji told Bhai Inderjeet Singh Ji to take up a position at the water tanks. (Paani Walay Tanka Outa)

Bhai Inderjeet Singh Ji fought with the bravery expected by those beautiful sons and daughters of Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj. Bhai Sahib and the other Singhs who had taken up those positions around the water tanks stopped many Indian forces from entering Sri Darbar Sahib. From this position Singhs were able to inflict heavy casualties on invading forces as they were very high up and could see the different ways the Invading forces were trying to come through. As they did this, Singhs would open fire.

Moving to Sham Singh’s Dera

On the 3rd of June 1984, Bhai Sahib’s duty was changed. He was told to go to the height floor in Sham Singh’s Dera. This building is on the Atta wali mandi side of Amritsar. From the floor Bhai Sahib now stood at he was able to fire bullets which would go straight into the Indian Army’s bunkers.

Bhai Sahib did this seva very well and was able to send many soldiers to face the true justice of Akaal Purakh at Dharam Rai’s court. Bhai Sahib was so proficient at aiming and shooting that all he required was one shot, which would send the bullet straight into the soldier’s head.

Bhai Sahib’s Shaheedi

On the 7th of June 1984 the Indian Forces were tired of the causalities they were suffering due to the fire of Singhs on the top floor of Sham Singh’s Dera. As a consequence of this they turned their attention here and started firing on this building non stop for several hours. Thousands of bullets were cutting through the air and many Singhs who had taken up positions here either got badly injured or attained Shaheedi. The only reason this happened was because the Singhs of Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj had run out of ammunition at this point.

The Singhs who were badly injured, were bleeding profusely. They had not eaten or drunk anything for many days, so they had become very weak, but they still remained in Chardee Kala. It was then that the coward Hindustani forces entered the building the remaining Singhs were in. They then forced the injured Singhs into one of their camps. After a while they then they shot Bhai Inderjeet Singh Ji and the other 21 Singhs with him that they had brought to this camp.

Baba Dayal singh sent his Singhs to tell Bhai Sahibs family of his Shaheedi. When Bhai Sahib’s head was accepted by Guru Sahib he was only 17 years and 5 months old.

Conclusion

After the Shaheedi of Bhai Inderjeet Singh Ji, his mother used to pray and would say the following in her ardas to Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj:

“Hey Sacha Patsaah! Main Apna Putra Vichu Apna Dasvandh Deh Dita Hai."
