  1. Who was Bhupinder Singh? The World wars were all staged and people used like fools. Would like to know if there is anything deeper. Like how on earth did Patialla escape the British Crown’s enslavement of India. Why on Earth was a Sikh co-operating with British rules and false wars???????

    • Even a basic reading of modern Sikh history would inform you of how events unfolded after Ranjit Singh’s death in 1839. And as far as Patiala state’ role is concerned, these things did not happen overnight. These are political things. Just because he was a Sikh it does not mean he is completely independent to do anything. Did not Guru Gobind Singh had friendly relationship with Bahadur Shah , son of Aurangzeb?
