In the history of the Khalsa the significance of martyrdom is immense.
Within Gurbani it is stated ‘the gurmukh’s are celebrated in life and in
death’. Out of great respect the name of Piara Singh and his religious
wife Parpoore Kaur are listed with the thousands of other warriors. Sardar
Bhagwan Singh and Mata Paal kaur (mother and father of Piara singh) lived a
life of great discipline and in line with the Sikh Rehit Maryada, there
names will live forever within the Sikh Panth. A paat is started for this
warrior and his wife’s shaheedi every year near the village of ‘aalooarkh’
in ‘bhavanigaar’. During the bhog there is many people attending.
After passing the 10 grade in ‘bhavanigaar’ high school Piara Singh enrolled
in ITI and PSU which was against the government. However from this roll Bhai
Sahib did not fulfil his minds intentions and shortly then enrolled with the
Sikh Student Federation (Bhai Daljeet Singh) and got together with the
Bhai Sahib spent two years behind bars withstanding torture from Rajinderpal
Soda in bhavanigaar in a police station called ‘thainaath thanidaar’. After
going through this torture Piara Singh became even more determined and until
his last days was a sewadar of KCF and Sikh Student Federation.
Piara Singh would travel to villages were he would find that particular
house holds have received threatening letters from thugs to rob families. He
would arrive there and intercept to stop the robbing taking place. He was
totally against these criminal activities, and always had an AK47 on his
shoulders when respectfully touching the feet of his respected elderly.
Upon meeting a friend, a friend said that the Khalsa have a lacking
character where they take a capsule in difficult times and should not really
do so and showing him an article said this is a trademark of the Tamil
Before Bhai Sahib had enrolled in any party he was already engaged and did
not wish to marry, but his Singhnee advised that she will stick with him to
the end (knowing what his intentions were), and they got married according
to full Gurmat Maryada.
For his family every year on the 29 August his shaheedi is celebrated.
