If I had to speculate, I would say that the Communist advocacy of secularism will always attract certain people of minority religions. As well as the issue of land reform for a largely agricultural state. I suspect these sardars are farmers.

One thing is sure, India has lots of communists compared to other non-communist countries.

What about the Sikh concept of Halemi Raj? Is it compatible with socialism?

I am completely unqualified to define Sikh theological concepts but I was introduced to the term by Jagraj Singh, e.g., here:


Of course, he was a particular individual with a particular point of view, but I will leave it to others to give a precise definition.

A short comment.

Of course, Bhagat Singh was a communist, but he - don't lynch me please - was an atheist and not a Sikh according to the definition of a Sikh in the SRM.
It's true, but some Sikh's believe that Bhagat Singh Ji took amrit shortly before his execution and such.

i've read Kapoor Singh's Discription on Bhagat singh....
Kapoor Singh was a member of Parliament from Punjab in 1960s maybe, He was a highly educated and a pure Gursikh as per most intellectuals says.... He even Analysed the current situation of Sikhs in india in late 1970s and predicted Genocides of Sikhs which came true in the time of 1984 and then 1990s.
He was a child when Bhagat singh was Martyred........ But Boi He Tells a whole different story of Bhagat singh than what is currently on paper.

Deathbed conversions are not unknown. We don't know and will never know unless and until we meet up in the Heavenly Abode. Since I have seen no evidence of his return to Sikhi, I am very skeptical. Whether he did or didn't, he did live his life as a search for freedom and justice and he was martyred for his beliefs in true Sikh fashion.

naaah he wrote a letter while he was in jail " Why am i an atheist " its on wikipedia, READ IT.
My bad I was saying he was an atheist and he wrote a book why I am an atheist, but I was saying that some religous Sikh's believe he took Amritshak.

Kapoor Singh wasn't a child when Bhagat Singh got hanged in 1931, but he was a young adult. He was 22 years old when Bhagat Singh got hanged.

It is not possible, Cuz bhagat singh was arrested in 8 april 1929 for lahore assembly bomb case, The letter " Why i am an Atheist " was written by him in 1930, He never came out of jail after april 1929.......
It is not possible that he took AMRIT.. EVERR

SO do you think his Version on Bhagat Singh's Story is true ?
I think there is a misunderstanding, I am stating that he was a bit older, I am not saying that I agree with his beliefs. I believe that Bhagat Singh was an atheist, and had a firm beliefs in Marxism.

The trouble is history gets contorted, it is common knowledge that Bhagat Singh was actually a fan of the Marx brothers, and did a very good impersonation of Harpo, this has been misunderstood to portray him as a Marxist, which is incorrect
