INDORE, MADYA PARDES - Residents of Indore were shocked to hear that a prominent local Sikh sewadar, Bhai Ratinder Singh was viciously attacked around midnight by a kukhri ((a Nepalese curved machete) wielding RSS hoodlum in a direct attempt to silence his opposition to anti-Panthic elements.

Bhai Ratinder Singh, who is physically and visually impaired, is serving as the senior editor of Panthic.org, and mukh sevadar of GURISKH/Shahbaaz Khalsa organization. Bhai Sahib's physical condition is attributed to the years of neglect and mis-treatment he had to endure during his incarceration in India's prison system during the turmoil in Punjab in the late '80s and early 90's.

According to family members, a kukri wielding local RSS ruffian Tarwinder who also goes by the alias "Satta" attacked Bhai Ratinder Singh's house around 11:30pm by first breaking down his door and them making an attempt on Bhai Sahib's life.

Bhai Sahib suffered cuts from Satta's sharp weapon on his shoulders, arms, and legs, but fended of the attack despite his weak health and failing eyesight. The assaulter soon fled the scene on foot. Attempts were made by the family to call the police, but the authorities did not respond in time.

Bhai Sahib was given medical treatment overnight for his injuries at a local hospital and released back to his family for rest and recuperation.

Interestingly, due to pressure from local BJP members and the RSS, the police was initially hesitant to file a complaint (FIR) or take actions against the perpetrator.

Realizing the inaction of the authorities, sewadars of Shahbaaz Khalsa then began to gather at the Malhar Ganj police station and also took the injured Bhai Ratinder Singh personally there before the officials filed any paperwork documenting the assault.

Satta, who has long history of criminal offenses, was now reportedly being held in Police custody until further investigation.

    Only God knows what is going to happen with the Sikh nation. After this kind of bad attacks they will say we are trying to protect Sikhism. They are playing in the hands of anti/Sikh people.

    They tried to divide Sikh in two parts like Muslims but failed. That is why so called pro Darshan Singh is silence. We don't see him around these days.

    As much as this shows the intolerence for Sikhs in india it also shows the tolerence of Sikhs towards this open attack on our religion.

    Sikhs who are involved in earthly passions, drinking, meat eating and going against the saying of our Gurus should learn from this incident that a good Sikh is being tormented by the goverment. If these Sikhs do not straighten up, they are petty targets for RSS people.

    Bhai sahib's simran helped him through all these difficulties. Today if Sikhs don't realize what Sikhism is going through and what should be done to stop this, then god help Sikhs.

    One very important thing that I would like to mention is that every Sikh household should have "shasters". When we know that we are going to be tortured and persecuted, it is better to die fighting than getting killed and on top of that not getting any justice.

    Every child,boy or girl, every woman and man, all elderly people should be armed and in a bad situation, fight back and ... to defend yourself because either way you are going to be tortured. First you will be badly injured or tortured, then you will be denied justice.

    Take your pick or do what Guru Gobind Singh ji maharaj has said. It is better to die fighting than getting arrested and on top of that not getting any justice.

    Veeer Deep Singh Jeeyo,

    Just think what history would had been if Baba Jarnail Singh Ji had thought just like you.

    Veer Jeeyo, Waheguru ji meher karan, je assi hambhla maariye taan bahot kujh ho sakda hai.

    Just sitting and thinking that someone will come again and lead us would lead us into nothing. Parmaatma wi ohna di hi madad karda hai jo aapni madad aap karde ne.

    Hope I made my point.
