Shaheed Bhai Bhupinder Singh Bhinda alias Bhai Harbinder Singh

Khalistan Liberation Force

Bhai Bhupinder Singh Bhinda was born in the year of 1971, in the house of Sardar Raghbir Singh and from the womb of Mata Kashmir Kaur in the village of Thande, District Amritsar. Bhai Sahib had three sisters Bibi Rupinderpal Kaur, Bibi Kulwinder Kaur and Bibi Baljinder Kaur, Bhai Sahib also had a older brother Bhai Lakhwinder Singh. Bhai Sahib’s father was a farmer and his whole family followed the teachings of Sikhi. Bhai Sahib passed all his 10 classes from a government school in a nearby village of Guru Ki Vandali. As well as studying in school, Bhai Sahib was a top football player. Bhai Sahib had won many trophies and shields playing football. Bhai Sahib’s older brother Bhai Lakhwinder Singh was already a police officer. It was in 1989, Bhai Sahib and his close friend Bhai Nirvair Singh OP joined the Punjab Police with the help of his older brother. Note: later Bhai Nirvair Singh OP also went underground with Bhai Sahib.

Bhai Sahib had finished his training and started his duty at Lopoke Police Station. While working here Bhai Sahib witnessed how the public was being harassed, how Sikh youth were being tortured and in many cases killed in fake encounters. All this did not allow Bhai Sahib to work for the murderous Punjab Police. Bhai Sahib along with his close friend Bhai Nirvair Singh OP left the police force and went underground to fight against the injustices upon Sikhs. From the Thande village, Bhai Resham Singh Thande was already underground and Bhai Sahib knew him. Bhai Sahib expressed his feelings to Bhai Resham Singh Thande, who then took Bhai Sahib under his command. Bhai Sahib was now a Jhujaru Singh of Khalistan Liberation Force and started punishing the anti-Sikh elements. Bhai Sahib always remained in high spirits at the time of actions.

One of Bhai Sahibs biggest action was when he assassinated the son of Congress MLA, Gurmej Ghumanpuria who was known as one of the loudest police informants and had many Jhujaru Singhs arrested and murdered. In October 1990, Bhai Sahib was married to Bibi Baljit Kaur, who was Jhujaru minded herself. This Anand Karaj happened under the watch of Bhai Resham Singh Thande. Bhai Sahib had one daughter from this marriage, her name was Bibi Karamjit Kaur. Bibi Baljit Kaur was also part of Khalistan Liberation Force and did sewa within the Sikh Freedom Movement. On 1st February 1992 Bhai Sahib, Bibi Baljit Kaur, Bhai Lakhwinder Singh Bathh of Dashmesh Regiment and fellow Jhujaru Singhs were travelling by Guru Ki Vandali, the CRPF checkpoint was ahead of these Jhujarus, soon as they came face to face an encounter broke out. Bibi Baljit Kaur and Bhai Lakhwinder Singh Bathh attained Shaheedi in this encounter. Bhai Sahib was shot seven times in his legs and was badly wounded. Fellow Jhujaru Singhs picked Bhai Sahib up and managed to escape. After intense medical support Bhai Sahib was well enough and jumped straight back on to the battlefield.

Because Bhai Sahib himself was underground, the Punjab Police started harassing Bhai Sahibs family to get to him. Bhai Sahibs older brother Bhai Lakhwinder Singh was suspended from his police duty, the police had arrested and tortures Bhai Sahib’s Mama, Chacha, brother-in-law, mother and father. On 3rd July 1992, the police killed Sardar Raghbir Singh along with a Jhujaru Singh, Bhai Lakhwinder Singh Lakha Jahaj in a fake encounter. After all this loss, Bhai Sahib remained in high spirits and continued to do sewa with Khalistan Liberation Force. Bhai Sahib never took personal revenge and stayed loyal to the Khalistan Liberation Force commands.

In the end on 8th October 1992, Bhai Sahib was travelling from Amritsar to Hoshiarpur on a Roadways bus. This information was fed back to the Punjab Police, who stopped the bus as soon as they could and tried to arrest Bhai Sahib, but Bhai Sahib had a pistol which he used to start an encounter with the enemy. Bhai Sahib managed to get out of the bus so no innocent public got hurt. As Bhai Sahib tried to run into the fields, the enemy shot Bhai Sahib in the back and made him Shaheed. After the Shaheedi of Bhai Sahib, his body was not given to the family. The Shaheedi saroop was secretly cremated at Dargaiana Mandir of Amritsar as an unidentified person.
