Shaheed Bhai Pargat Singh Samra

Khalistan Commando force

Shaheed Bhai Pargat Singh Samra was born in the house Sardar Sada Singh and from the womb of Mata Harnam Kaur on 18th October 1962 in village Mari Samra district Amritsar.  Bhai Sahib studied at local school up until 5th class, from there Bhai Sahib studied at a Government High School till 10th class. Bhai Sahib went for his BA at Khalsa College of Amritsar. From 1980 Bhai Sahib was studying at the college and also regularly went to visit Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Bhindranwale to listen to the lectures. When in 1984 the Indian government attacked Sri Akaal Takhat Sahib and 37 other Sikh gurudwaras, Bhai Sahib couldn’t take the pain of this attack sitting down. Bhai Sahib picked up arms, as many Sikh youth did after 1984 and went on to join the Sikh Freedom Movement which was started by Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Bindranwale with all his heart.

Bhai Sahib was arrested as the result of a police informer, in November 1986. Bhai Sahib was granted bail in 1988 after 13 months in police custody and returned home. Unable to see the desecration of the gurudwaras, dishonor of Sikh sisters and the gruesome tortures of young Sikh males, Bhai sahib decided to pick up the weapons again in1988. Bhai Sahib started working under Bhai Bhagwant Singh Kala alias Bullet, Lt. General of Khalistan Commando force. Bhai Sahib had to take responsibility for the group and took Bhai Bhagwant Singhs position of Lt. General after the shaheedi of Bhai Bhagwant Singh Kala alias Bullet. After a few actions Bhai Sahib lost many of his close associates and had to recruit and train new ones. Bhai Sahib started to punish the desecrators of the gurudwaras. In the end Bhai Sahib attained martyrdom during an encounter with Indian security forces along with his associates in 1990. Bhai Sahib never stopped walking on the path of Sikh struggle, whose foundation was laid by Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Bhindranwale and continuing the Khalsa tradition of martyrdom.

His position was taken by his younger brother, Bhai Karaj Singh Samra and close friend Bhai Avtar Singh Sabhra, and they continued the struggle faithfully.
