Sant Jarnail Singh Jee -What did the Sant actually teach?

We produced a series of posters that give an insight to the teachings of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. Our aim is for Sangat to be inspired by these short quotes and go on to read the full English translation of his 44 speeches in the book Struggle for Justice by Ranbir Singh Sandhu. This is available to read for free at the Panjab Digital Library: http://goo.gl/BRNPiI

November 1984

We put together a simple set of images that explain what happened to Sikhs in India after Indira Gandhi was assassinated. They are only a brief summary and we hope they can be shared to give everyone an overview of the horrific events that took place. If you are interested in learning more, we have put together a comprehensive list of resources and you can find these here

Jaswant Singh Khalra Project

Shaheed Bhai Jaswant Singh Khalra was a pivotal human rights activist who uncovered mass illegal cremations. After using this evidence to show that the Indian state had killed thousands of Sikhs unlawfully, he was kidnapped and killed by Punjab police officials at the behest of KPS Gill. We produced a series of images which summarise what Bhai Sahib with the aim to raise awareness of his extraordinary sacrifice and courage.
