Bhai Raminderjeet Singh 'Taini' and Bibi Manjeet Kaur

Bhai Sahib with His Wife
Of those thousands of warriors that were martyred in the struggle for the Sikh Nation's freedom there was a Saint Soldier who was very firm in bani and bana by the name of Babbar Raminderjeet Singh Taini. Bhai Sahib was born in the year of 1965 to mata Sharanjeet Kaur and Amrik Singh in the city of Jalandhar.

After receiving his elementary education Bhai Sahib went on to higher studies at Ramgharia College and Sukhchain-Anah College in Phagwara. Since college, Bhai Raminderjeet Singh followed the ideology of the freedom fighters. During this time, Bhai Sahib came to have great love for Sikh freedom fighters such as Martyr Bhai Paramjeet Singh 'Gandasa' (prime accused in the incident against Shiv Sena President Rama Kant Jalota). In the 1984 after Operation Blue Star Raminderjeet Singh was arrested by the police and sent to Jalandhar Jail where the Punjab Police severely tortured him and several false cases were put on him. After putting many more cases on Bhai Sahib, the Police sent him to Nabha Security Jail where he was locked up for 2 years. On being released from jail, Bhai Sahib went home but was unable to stay there, as he would keep thinking about the chardi kala of the Khalsa Panth to which his soul was attached.

In the city of Jalandhar, the year 1987, Bhai Sahib killed a 'Police Cat' (Government sponsored informants/paramilitaries who were responsible for the death of many innocents and freedom fighters). Upon completing this task, Raminderjeet Singh began bringing to justice those enemies of the Sikh Nation who were hell bent on finishing off the Sikhs. By this time, Bhai Sahib had met many famous personalities in the Sikh freedom movement such as Bhai Avtar Singh Babbar Pehlvaan, Bhai Manjeet Singh Babbar and many other eminent freedom fighters of the Babbar Khalsa organization.

After some time the Jalandhar Police with a tip from a police informant arrested Bhai Sahib again. Once again, the Punjab Police showed their true character by ruthlessly torturing Bhai Sahib Ji, but he took all the police torture on his body with a calm and peaceful mind. Subsequently many cases were put on against Bhai Raminderjeet Singh Ji and he was locked up in Nabha Jail. It is here that he met Bhai Harmeet Singh Babbar Paouval, Bhai Charanjeet Singh Chana Babbar and other freedom fighters. Bhai Raminderjeet Singh Babbar and Bhai Harmeet Singh Babbar became very close to one another, their respect for one another was even greater than that of brothers, which also lasted until their last breaths.

In 1989, after spending quite some time in jail, Bhai Sahib came home but spent very little time there. He left home and never looked back as doing sew for the Khalsa Panth was his main motive. During the month of July, in the year 1990, a group of ‘police cats’ attacked Bhai Sahib’s father, during this attack his father was gravely wounded. Accepting this challenge by the Indian security forces Ramindeljeet Singh Babbar went after the 'black cats' that were operating under the name of 'Indian Lions'.

One by one, the true lion - Raminderjeet Singh Babbar, finished off all of these phony lions. Seeing the immense seva that Bhai Sahjb was doing for the Khalsa Panth, the head sevadaar of Babbar Khalsa International Bhai Sahjb Sukhdev Singh Ji Babbar appointed

Raminderjeet Singh Babbar as the chief sevadaar of the Jalandhar area. Some time later Bhai Sahib Ji made the Ropar area the center of his Panthic actions. Raminderjeet Singh Babbar along with Harmeet Singh Babbar Paouval, Bhai Balvinder Singh Babbar Jatana, Bhai Charanjeet Singh Babbar, and many other freedom fighters from the Babbar Khalsa organization began eliminating the enemies of the Khalsa Panth in the Malwa region and outside of Punjab.

Bhai Sahib with His Wife
On the evening of February 28, 1991, Bhai Nirmal Singh Babbar Gegaymajra, Bhai Harpal Singh Babbar and Bhai Raminderjeet Singh Taini were traveling in a Maruti van near Chandigarh when the Punjab Police due to a tip off from a police informant surrounded them. Bhai Nirmal Singh Babbar became a martyr at that moment when he swallowed a cyanide capsule but the Chandigarh police took Ramniderjeet Singh and Harpal Singh into their custody. While locked up, Bhai Sahib was ruthlessly tortured by the S.S.P. Sumedh Saini and other heartless officers under his command. Sumedh Saini heated up iron rods until they were glowing red and used them to burn Raminderjeet Singh Babbar. Bhai Sahib had burns all over his body. Even with such a ruthless method of torture being carried out on Bhai Sahib, the police interrogators were not even able to get his real name from him. After hearing of Bhai Sahib's arrest, the freedom fighters that were close to him kidnapped the relatives of Ludhiana's Chief Minister Boota Sioh. This forced the police to publicly admit that they had arrested Bhai Raminderjeet Singh as otherwise the police would have killed Bhai Sahib in a false encounter. When the police admitted Bhai Sahib's arrest, the freedom fighters released the relatives of the Chief Minister. Police Chiefs from both Jalandhar and Ludhiana came to Chandigarh so that they could torture Bhai Sahib and get some information out of him. The S.S.P of Jalandhar devised a scheme to kill Raminderjeet Singh. He wanted to take Bhai Sahib to Jaladhar and kill him in a false encounter along the way. The Jalandhar S.S.P. wanted to carry out this plan as Raminderjeet Singh Babbar had eliminated an entire group of his ‘police cats’. Fortunately, the S.S.P was unable to get permission from the Chandigarh Police to transfer Bhai Sahib to Jalandhar so he was unable to carry out his evil plans.

Seeing all these schemes to get him eliminated, Bhai Sahib began making a scheme of his own, which was to escape from jail. On February 25, 1992, Bhai Sahib was being transported by the police to the P.G.I. for a medical checkup. Carrying out the action that was preplanned by Bhai Sahib and his fellow freedom fighters of Babbar Khalsa, the freedom fighters attacked the police group escorting Raminderjeet Singh Babbar and freed him. During this daring escape a polic:e Sub Inspector was killed and several police officers were wounded.

Upon being freed from jail, Bhai Sahib once again began fighting for the freedom of the Sikh Nation. The Punjab government was now offering a reward of 15 lakh for information leading to the arrest or death of Raminderjeet Singh Babbar. Subsequently, Bhai Sahib was married to Bibi Manjeet Kaur of Gango Radhram village. Bibi Manjeet Kaur was a true Gursikh bibi and had a very firm belief in Gurbani. Bhai Harmeet Singh Paouval Babbar performed the Anand Karaj of Bhai Raminderjeet Singh Babbar and Bibi Manjit Kaur. Even after marriage, there was no change or slow down in Bhai Sahib's actions and determination to gain freedom for the Khalsa Panth. Bibi Manjeet Kaur began playing an equal part in the liberation movement for the Khalsa Panth, she along with her husband took part in many actions carried out by the Babbar Khalsa freedom fighters.

Both Shahid Bodies
In the Khalsa Panth, many great warriors have taken birth but unfortunately, many traitors have as well. On March 5, 1993, such a traitor informed the police of the whereabouts of Bhai Raminderjeet Singh Babbar. While traveling by bus from Patiala to Ludhiana, the S.S.P. of Khanna stopped and surrounded the bus with a large police force that Bhai Sahib and his wife Bibi Manjeet were traveling in. The police asked Bhai Sahib to step out of the bus, but Bhai Sahib had made up his mind to take on the police force and asked the passengers to get off the bus. After the passengers had gotten off the bus, Babbar Raminderjeet Singh began the battle with the police force as he opened fire on them with his AK-47 assault rifle. In complete support of her husband, Bibi Manjeet Kaur also entered the battle and began firing on the police force. During this battle Raminderjeet Singh Babbar and his Singhnee Bibi Manjit Kaur showed unparalleled bravery, together they showed the police and onlookers how an actual encounter takes place between the oppressive government and the brave Khalsa of Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

On taking heavy losses, the police began firing very heavily on the bus from which the brave lion and lioness were fighting. Even though they were outnumbered and taking heavy gunfire from the police, Bhai Sahib and Bibi Ji stayed steadfast in the battle. Carrying on the battle for quite some time, Raminderjeet Singh Babbar and Bibi Manjeet Kaur Ji saw no way out and therefore martyred themselves rather than coming into the hands of the Punjab police. This brave Babbar along with his Singhnee have gone to Guru Sahib's Charan and left us. Since Bhai Sahib's younger brother and father were locked up in jail, his mother alone performed her son's and daughter in-law's 'antim sanskar' in the presence of the Khana Police. The Khalsa Panth will forever have the greatest respect for such martyrs.
