Shaheed Bhai Navneet Singh Khadian

Bhai Navneet Singh Ji Khadian was born in the year 1970, in a middle class family. At a very young age he showed his yearning to learn about Sikhi and would often go to the local Gurdwara by himself and carry out seva and listen to Katha (discourse) and Kirtan. After taking part in education in his local school he went to study further at Bidar Engineering College in the state of Karnataka, South India. In the year 1985, Hindu mobs attacked the college and killed 10 students studying at the college. The local Sikh population fought hard to prosecute the guilty and as India has one law for the minorities and one for the majority, the cases were not brought to book. The episode in Bhai Navneet Singh Ji's young life left a considerable mark on him. He went back to his homeland and enrolled at Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, Ludhiana. Here he witnesses a living hell with daily killings of Sikh youths, torture and the discrimination in the field of employment on social and religous grounds.

As a well educated and religous man Bhai Sahib decided to take spiritual inspiration from Sikh history and take the path of a saint soldier. He joined the Sikh Guerrilla group Khalistan Liberation Force (K.L.F.) under the command of Bhai Gurjant Singh Ji Budhsingwala. His courage, dedication, resourcefulness and leadership qualities soon won him great admirers across the Sikh community. After the martyrdom of Bhai Kuldeep Singh Keepa Shekhupua, Bhai Sahib took overall command of the K.L.F. On the night of 25th February 1994, Bhai Sahib gained martyrdom at Jaipur, Rajasthan.
