Satnaam Ji. Martyrs of a kaum shape the thought process of a kaum in general. Their life inspires some. But the important fact is that any act done by one in the context of Religion cannot be isolated from the adherents of the religion. Actions of one does influence the other. In case of struggle period of 80s-early 90s, Our Singhs who were fighting the cause of independent state or autonomous state, whichever way they want to put it, could not preserve the movement and what it wanted to achieve. After 84, if we focus, There were around more than 15-20 militant groups who were fighting for the cause. As the history tells and the events that shaped during that time, as we read them in accounts of people involved, there was little coherence and huge trust deficit among them that even they went to the extent of killing people of other groups. Why would a government like to talk to dispersed movement, and instead would like to increase the dispersion, and infact, I would do the same If I was the administrator and was handed over this position to tackle. M.K. Dhar in his book(Open Secrets) writes of his meeting with Baba Manochahal, he has compared his meeting with Babaji to meeting with North-East rebels. He observed there was great bit of code followed and measures taken to ensure complete secrecy in case of North-east rebels and it was missing here. On Policy making and consensus, there was huge gap to extent that Sarabat Khalsa was declared without consensus and those with Guns had grown into indecisive and wayward force which has lost its wisdom and the sense that the actions they carry out adversely affect their brethren. Police too started indiscriminate killing of innocent taking advantage of the situation. If the Sikh Kharkoo Groups had not denounced the elections and engaged in talks with the government, Sarkar would not have taken decisive step to give such free hand to KPS gill. From government perspective, if someone is not not coming to table and neither giving arms as it had to end at some time, then it would be rightful on the part of govt to be ruthless. ALAS, our Singhs could not understand this and there were blunders after blunder. Right from not declaring Santji as shaheed. All in all, more than the govt, I believe there has been greater wrong in our won house, which has not been discussed and is not being discussed. Satnaam ji.
