"ਸਾਹਿਬ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਜੀ ਵਿਰੁੱਧ ਕੁਫ਼ਰ ਤੋਲਣ ਵਾਲੇ, ਗੁਰੂ ਸਾਹਿਬਾਨ ਦੇ ਵਿਰੁੱਧ ਬੋਲਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਨੂੰ ਸੋਧਣਾ ਹਰ ਗੁਰਸਿੱਖ ਦਾ ਫ਼ਰਜ਼ ਹੈ। ਇਹੋ ਜਿਹੇ ਸਿੱਖ ਨੂੰ ਜੇ ਸਰਕਾਰ ਅਤਿਵਾਦੀ ਕਹਿੰਦੀ ਹੈ ਤਾਂ ਮੈਂ ਅਤਿਵਾਦੀ ਹਾਂ।"
- Bhai Ranjit Singh (Jathedar Sri Akal Takht Sahib)

A Prince: Bhai Amarjeet Singh Babbar aka Shahzada

Source: Bhai Balpreet Singh

Bhai Amarjeet Singh's wish was fulfilled when the newspapers printed the story: 'Jalandar Police, at village Guman, tha Bangan, in an encounter, killed the youth Amarjeet Singh aka. Shahzada, resident of the Adampur area.'

Bhai Shahzada was born in the house of Sardar Inder Singh of Dhiroval, of Jalandar district.

Under the leadership of Jathedar Sukhdev Singh Babbar and Bhai Wadhawa Singh, Bhai Amarjeet Singh gave his priceless contribution to the Sikh Freedom Movement.

"Prince"

Bhai Wadhawa Singh, impressed by Bhai Amarjeet Singh's physical stature, manner of speaking and personality nicknamed him Shahzada or 'Prince'. He was 22 or 23 years old and he was quite tall with a strong body and glowing face. He was always smiling and ready to laugh. Whoever sat with him even for a short time began to feel as though they had known him for ages.

Joining the Movement

He did not care about the comforts of home. The attachment to his family did not ever drag him down. The events of June 1984 moved him so profoundly, that one day he left home saying he was going to the store, but neither did he end up at the store nor did he ever return home. After many attempts, he was able to come into contact with Singhs of Babbar Khalsa. He presented himself for the service of the Panth and he was assigned to Bhai Wadhawa Singh. Until his final days he served under his leadership.


Dead to Family

For two and a half years, he had no contact with his family. His family tried to track him down but was unsuccessful. Finally, they began to believe that he had died and had an akhand patth in his memory and had his final ardaas performed. After this, Bhai Shahzada accidentally ran into his brother at some place and finding out about the ardas said, 'It is good you have done an akhand patth for me. These days, if a Singh falls into the police's hands, not even his body can be traced. It's possible that when they kill me, you will not even receive news of it.'

Meeting Bhai Avtar Singh Brahma & Rehet

When Babbar Khalsa and Khalistan Liberation Force became closer, General Bhai Avtar Singh Brahma began to visit Bhai Shahzada's hideout. General Brahama was also very taken by Bhai Amarjeet Singh. He used to say, 'No matter how tired I am, after just listening to Bhai Shazada talk all my fatigue is lifted.'

No one has any doubts about the discipline of the Singhs that served in Babbar Khalsa. No one could refuse the Jathedar's orders. Bhai Amarjeet Singh too always remained in total discipline.

Bhai Amarjeet Singh was very firm in Khalsa Rehet. He had memorized countless Gurbani passages. He would begin his Nitnem at 3 AM at amritvela and continue until 8 in the morning.

Only Wish & Shaheedee

Bhai Amarjeet Singh used to say to Bhai Wadhawa Singh, 'Bhai Sahib, I don't want anything else but whenever I go out on a mission, I need a good-looking kurta pyjama because when I leave my body and people come to see my corpse lying in the fields, the youth should see the glow on my face and my smart clothes. Then they too will feel inspired and their hearts will themselves be pulled to join the Singhs.

Satguru Sachay Patshah fulfilled Bhai Shahzada's desire to leave his body in a glorious manner on January 28, 1989 and made him an inspiration to countless others.
