A salute to the management committee of the Panchkula Gurdwara Sahib, located in the Indian state of Haryana, BRAVO!
The family of Indian Army Lt. Gen. Ranjit Singh Dyal, now dead, have been told that they cannot be allowed to hold the annual prayer meeting for him in the Panchkula Gurdwara Sahib in Haryana, because of the morally repugnant conduct of the late General during the the June, 84 Indian Army attack on the Darbar Sahib, Amritsar, a brutal miltary operation he volunteered to command
“The refusal by the management committee of the Panchkula Gurdwara Sahib is fully justified and reflects the collective will of the Sikh community” – SPOKESMAN, DAL KHALSA
Washington D.C. Wednesday, January 23, 2013 (Khalistan Affairs Center): The management of a Gurdwara Sahib, located in Panchkula, in the Indian non-riparian state of Haryana, has point blank refused to allow the family of the late Indian Army Lt. Gen. (Retd) Ranjit Singh Dyal, (born 15 November 1928: died 29 January 2012) to hold a prayer meeting this month to mark the first anniversary of that mercenary’s death, according to Indian media reports. The (www.deccanchronicle.com/130121/news-current-affairs/article/citing-operation-blue-star-attack- golden-temple-gurdwara-refuses) above mentioned General Ranjit Singh Dyal, now dead, a turbaned Sikh – to his eternal shame – was widely known to have taken charge with glee of the horrible June 1984 India Army attack on the Darbar Sahib, Amritsar, (also called the Golden Temple in the Western world) with the aim of murdering the charismatic Sikh preacher, Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale (born 12 February 1947: martyred the Indian Army on June 6, 1984) who had earned the respect of the Sikh community and had become very popular among the Sikhs masses with his preaching and simple religious messages from the Darbar Sahib, Amritsar. The June 1984 Indian Army attack was ordered by the late Mrs. Indira Gandhi, the then Prime minister of India who was the mother-in-law of India’s current ‘king-maker’ the Italian ‘import’ Mrs. Sonia Gandhi. Prime minister Indira Gandhi’s ‘Machiavellion’ order to the Indian Army to attack the Darbar Sahib, Amritsar resulted not only in the murder of Sant Jarnail Singh Bjindrawale but also the destruction of the Akal Takht Sahib, inside the Durbar Sahib complex, in the holy city of Amritsar. The uncalled for Indian Army attack on the Darbar Sahib complex and destruction of the Akal Takht Sahib angered and offended every practicing Sikh for ever!
According to the Wikipedia the late Lt. Gen. Ranjit Singh Dyal had the overall charge of leading the Indian Army assault on the Darbar Sahib complex in June 1984 along with mercenary Indian Army Generals Kuldip Singh Brar and Krishnaswamy Sundarji. At that time, (June 1984) General Ranjit Singh Dyal was chief of staff of the Western Army Command and it was he who drew up the plans (Code name: Operation Blue Star) to murder Sant Jarnail Singh Bjindrawale, and evict other Sikh patriots from the Darbar Sahib complex (known in the West as the Golden Temple) in Amritsar.
The late Lt. General Ranjit Singh Dyal, if he was a practicing Sikh, could have honorably resigned from the Indian Army and refused to take part in any army attack on the Darbar Sahib – the holiest site in Sikhism. He could have also refused to be associated with the state-sponsored mass murder by the Indian Army of thousands of innocent Sikh pilgrims (men, women and children) visiting the Darbar Sahib, at that point in time, in early June 1984. The above mentioned Division-strong Indian army operation (code-named: Operation ‘Blue Star”) resulted not only in the murder of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale but the mass murder of thousands of innocent Sikh pilgrims (men, women and children) during that early June 1984 Indian Army attack on the Durbar Sahib, located in the Sikh holy city of Amritsar, in Indian Occupied Punjab. That horrible June 1984 event marked the start of the decades-long state-sponsored Sikh genocide in Indian occupied Punjab, New Delhi and other urban areas of India, during which thousands upon thousands of other innocent Sikhs (men women and children) were murdered by Hindu mobs led by police mercenaries dressed in uniforms of the Indian state. The fact that thousands of murdered folk were all Sikhs and were his compatriots and co- religionists did not bother the late General Ranjit Singh Dyal. The horrible decade long genocide of Sikhs, that followed the attack on the Darbar Sahib did not bother the General either. The tragic Sikh genocide did not elicit even a squeek of protest or regret or empathy from General Ranjit Singh Dyal even after his retirement from the Indian Army when he was given the ‘khushi jobs of governorship of Pondicherry (1988 to 1990) and the governorship of the Andaman islands (from 1990 to 1992) as a reward for betraying the Sikh community! Some Sikh!
It is obvious that the late Lt. Gen. Ranjit Singh Dyal’s was a greedy mercenary as his dead consience did not bother him even during the dark days of November 1984, when over ten thousand Sikhs were murdered by state supervised Hindu mobs. It did not even bother him when hundreds of Sikh army officers – his brother officers – over 180 of them, traveling in uniform to Delhi were dragged out of Indian trains, were beaten to death and their bodies torched with Kerosene by Hindu mobs on railway stations, like Tughlaqabad, mostly around Delhi in November 1984. Even after retirement Lt. General Ranjit Singh Dyal did not repent and did not show any regret and did not seek forgiveness in the Darbar Sahib for his evil deeds.
A Chandigarh datelined report about the above mentioned incident in the Panchkula Haryana Gurdwara Sb. published in the English language Indian newspaper, Deccan Chronicle yesterday, (January 22, 2013) headlined, “Golden Temple, gurdwara refuses to hold prayers for Lt Gen R S Dayal,” quotes the spokesman of the Punjab-based Sikh patriotic organization, Dal Khalsa, Sardar Kanwarpal Singh Bittu, as saying that his organization supports the (http://www.deccanchronicle.com/130121/news-current-affairs/article/citing-operation-blue-star-attack- golden-temple-gurdwara-refuses) decision of the Punchkula Gurdwara management committee to refuse permission to hold a prayer meeting to remember the late Lt. Gen. Ranjit Singh Dyal whose hands are colored with the blood of thousands of innocent Sikhs. “The refusal is fully justified and reflects the collective will of the Sikh community”, he is reported to have said.
The Dal Khalsa spokesman is right. Indeed. his forthright comment supporting the refusal of the management of the Haryana Gurdwara to hold a first anniversary prayer meeting for that dead mercenary, (Lt. Gen. Ranjit Singh Dyal), reflects the collective will of the twenty eight million Sikh nation, three million Sikhs living free in the diaspora and 25 million captive in the Indian ‘map’, since August 1947 when the exhausted British Colonials quit South Asian subcontinent in haste after the end of World War II. It is hoped that the thousands of Sikh officers and men serving in the Indian Army will take a lesson from the shame of the late Lt. General Ranjit Singh Dyal and take a cue from the moral courage displayed by over two dozen very senior retired Sikh Army officers (Lt. Generals, Major Generals, Brigadiers, and Colonels et al) who had the guts to speak their mind at the press conference, held on December 17, 2012, at the Pankaj Hotel in Chandigarh. During that press conference the retired Sikh senior Army officers have demanded answers from the Indian government, and from the headquartes of the three armed services, about the unsolved mystery – an accounting of the murders of one hundred and eighty (yes 180) uniformed Sikh officers and men who were dragged out of trains by Hindu mobs, led by junior Congress partry leaders, and murdered on the platforms of different railway stations near Delhi, in November 1984.

Gen. Ranjit Singh Dyal did not want any problems with his pension and other privileges and died on 29 January 2012, in Indian ‘slave-harness’. Let his relatives seek help from the Indian government!
