He touched my feet and said, “I am ready for martyrdom, I am willing to die with my head held high I will never let down my community.”

(Pyar Kaur, Mother of S. Satwant Singh)

“Whatever my son did is for the Panth (Sikh Nation)” (Kartar Kaur, Mother of S. Beant Singh)

“He was happy, he was laughing, he said that death sentence was God’s wish’’ S. Kehar Singh’s last meeting as described by his wife Jasbir Kaur.

As we salute the brave sons of the Sikh nation let us ask ourselves:

(1) Did these souls not have the same flesh, blood and emotions as we have?

(2) Did they not have mother, father, sisters, brothers and children who treasure them?

(3) Did they not have the worldly needs and aspirations?

YES, they were human like you and I.

YES, they and many others are sacrificing it all.

YES, they went to the gallows to re-instate the Sikh pride, so others may cherish, practice their faith and live with honor, dignity and heads held high.

Great are the mothers who have given birth to such proud sons of the Sikh nation.

Let us re-dedicate ourselves to free the Sikh nation, Khalistan from Hindu strangulation so that our nation may not have to pay so dearly again
