Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF)
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 religious grounds.
As a well educated and religious
man Bhai Sahib decided to take spiritual inspiration from Sikh history
and take the path of a saint soldier.
He joined the Khalistan Liberation Force under the command of Bhai Gujrant 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, aged just 24, Bhai Sahib gained
martyrdom at Jaipur, Rajasthan.
