Gursikhs from the Past
Bhai Gurjit Singh
Bhai Gurjit Singh was currently studying at Mohga College in his final year of his B.A. Sant Giani Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale always used to visit Bhai Gurjit Singh’s older brother Bhai Darshan Singh at his house because they were old friends. Sant Giani Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale and Bhai Darshan Singh once swapped their dastar’s with each other, they were ‘Paghwat Brothers’.
One Day Sant Ji asked Bhai Darshan Singh that they wanted something from him, after hearing this, Bhai Darshan Singh said to Sant Ji that he will give Sant Ji anything that they ask for. Sant Ji then said that they wanted his younger brother, Bhai Gurjit Singh. Bhai Darshan Singh really adored Bhai Gurjit Singh and they said that it would have been better if Sant Ji asked for something else but now they have asked for him, they will have to give him. This happened in 1977.
Once Bhai Gurjit Singh joined the Jatha, Sant Ji made them into the spokesman of A.I.S.S.F. Sant Ji then got Bhai Gurjit Singh married to Bibi Rashpal Kaur who was Sant Ji’s niece, Bhai Vir Singh’s daughter who is Sant Ji’s younger brother.
In 1979 Bhai Gurjit Singh went underground. Bhai Sahib was also in the 1984 attack. After Operation Bluestar, the Punjab Police caught Bhai Sahib and sent them to Ferozpur Jail. After spending time in jail, he later got released and then he went straight to Pakistan.
In 1985 he came back to Punjab from Pakistan and he met up with his old friends, Bhai Manvir Singh Chaheru, Bhai Kuldip Singh Muchal, Bhai Aroor Singh, and Baba Gurbachan Singh Manochahal. After this happened the Singhs’ made a Jathebandi called Khalistan Commando Force which they made Bhai Manvir Singh Chaheru the General of the Jathebandi. Bhai Gurjit Singh also started doing Parchar in colleges and university’s and he started the A.I.S.S.F Jathebandi again.
The movement of Khalistan Commando Force and A.I.S.S.F became very strong.
While Bhai Gurjit Singh was doing seva for A.I.S.S.F, he also played a major role in doing seva for Khalistan Commando Force.
