Vengeance

Vaheguru ji da khalsa
Vaheguru ji di fateh

I have very low knowledge about the topic revenge and would like sangat
to help me understand more about it.

I read that revenge is wrong in Sikhi
as Guru Gobind Singh Ji said himself
That the sword should never be picked up
In spirit of revenge. I am curious to know
If the assassination of Indra Gandhi was
an act of revenge.

I am sorry if I said anything sorry
Please excuse my lack of knowledge [quote][/quote]

I wondered about that myself. Suggesting that her killing was an act of vengeance would mean that the two Singhs that ended her life are not shaheedi. In light of that I came to the personal conclusion that those brave Singhs acted to prevent her from further acts of violence. This is my personal conclusion so if anyone disagrees know that no offense was intended.

Sat Sri Akal Ji,

I have always wondered this as a child. I believe that we should hold the Guru's words as True, and never commit atrocities against other people. However, the assassination of Indra Gandhi was brought on because of the 1984 attacks, so the Sikhs were just trying to stand up to the oppression. It doesn't exactly mean that what they did was completely correct, but humans are inevitably flawed, and those two Sikhs did what they thought was correct and good for the Sikh religion.

I know this is a very ambiguous answer. In short, I cannot decide whether it was justified or not, but I can say that those two Sikhs did it with the love for the Sikh religion in their hearts.

I agree, I also believe they did this to prevent further acts of violence.
