Shaheed Bhai Paramjit Singh Pamma

Khalistan Commando Force

The village of Kohja Sham Chaurasi is on the left side of the main road from Jalandhar to Hoshiarpur. A Khalistani martyr of this village, Bhai Paramjit Singh Pamma made his family proud by contributing his life to the Sikh Freedom Movement. Even the people from this village feel the pride in saying that after the June 1984 and November 1984 Sikh massacre, Bhai Paramjit Singh Pamma left his life of luxuries and fulfilled the Panthic responsibilities.

Bhai Paramjit Singh Pamma was born in the year of 1961, in the house of Sardar Gurdev Singh and from the womb of Mata Mahinder Kaur. Bhai Sahib had 3 brothers and 1 sister. Bhai Sahib was in his childhood when unfortunately his father passed away. The whole responsibility of the household fell on the shoulders of Bhai Balvir Singh, the eldest brother of Bhai Sahib and their Chacha Ji, who lived in the UK. After passing middle school, Bhai Sahib learned how to drive trucks and after started doing trips to Bombay to earn money.  It was during this time Sri Harimandir Sahib was attacked and thousands of pilgrims were mercilessly butchered. Bhai Sahib returned home and straight away took Amrit from the Panj Pyare and started living his life according to Gurmat. Short while after this, Bhai Sahib started secretly taking part in the Sikh Freedom Movement. During this time Bhai Sahib fulfilled many panthic responsibilities. Bhai Sahib had been doing actions under the command of General Labh Singh of Khalistan Commando Force.

Bhai Sahib did Jhujaru actions with the likes of Bhai Jasvir Singh Lally, Baba Rattan Singh, Bhai Balihar Singh Shindra Iserwal and many more brave Jhujaru Singhs. Soon this group came into the eyes of Indian security forces, Bhai Sahib realised that it isn’t safe to do actions in secret, in fact it was time to jump into the open battlefield. Bhai Sahib had pun shied many informants and traitors of the Sikh Panth. Day by day Bhai Sahib and his group became more and more dangerous.

When the Punjab police couldn’t arrest Bhai Sahib, they targeted other members of Bhai Sahib’s family. On 13th April 1987, Bhai Sahib’s eldest brother Bhai Balvir Singh was arrested and only after blind torture he was sent to jail. The remaining family and relatives of Bhai Sahib were continued to be harassed by Punjab police. This was done so that Bhai Sahib would feel forced to hand himself into the Punjab police, but Bhai Sahib remained in high spirits and continued to walk on the path of freedom.

Then in 11th June 1987, Bhai Sahib and Bhai Lembher Singh were surrounded by Indian security forces after they were tipped off by an informant, this happened as these Jhujaru Singhs were travelling to the village of Rapur, near Aadampur. Bhai Sahib wanted to take his position and battle with the enemy but the Indian security forces didn’t give him a chance and arrested Bhai Sahib and Bhai Lembher Singh managed to escape. That night Bhai Sahib was blindly tortured and in the end made a martyr in a false encounter. During this time, the eldest brother of Bhai Sahib, Bhai Balvir Singh was still in jail and was unable to attend the cremation of his brother. The family cremated Bhai Sahib and thousands of people from nearby villages attended the Bhog of Bhai Sahib to pay their respects to the fallen soldier of Khalistan.
