As the 30th anniversary of the 1978 Vaisakhi massacre approaches, the Sikh Nation must contemplate on where it currently stands on issues involving increasing anti-Sikh activities. Although three decades ago, thirteen Sikhs laid down their lives for the sake of respect for Guru Granth and Guru Panth, can Sikhs of today even claim to abide by the precedents set by the Sikh Shaheeds?

Today, as our leadership has taken up the never-ending task of collecting the world’s financial wealth; Punjab once again is falling to the trap of ‘dehdhari cults’ such as Sacha Sauda, Naamdharis, Radhaswamis, Noormehal and others. Instead of initiating projects to raise awareness against drug abuse, the leaders of Punjab are involved in supplying drugs to the masses. Lack of parchar at Sikh institutions is leading the Sikh youth and adults to turn their backs on the values and beliefs of the religion.

"This day must not be forgotten. This is the day to remember the Martyrs of Amritsar. This is a day to be proud of, that at least there were men among us who could live to the very tradition of the Khalsa. There were men among us while alive who could take eleven bullets in their body and still say, Waheguru. They went as a true son goes to defend the grace of the father. "

It was after 1978 that the Sikh Nation launched a decade long movement to shake the shackles of slavery from its shoulders. But sadly, only in a period of another decade, the movement has suffered costly blows from all four corners of the world. Today, not only are political issues which originate in India affecting the Sikhs, our Nation remains under the eye of major world powers. After a period of thirty years, will the Kingdom of Lions wake up to once again raise its Nishan Sahib high on the Red Fort?

In such a hope, we provide our readership with our weekly edition, dedicated to the lives of the thirteen shaheeds of Amritsar Sahib.
