Book Preview ~ The Valiant - Shahid Jaswant Singh Khalra

The American Sikh Council (ASC) is proud to announce the upcoming release of an excellent book on the life and sacrifice of the fearless Jaswant Singh Khalra, a very well-known human rights activist who initially unearthed over 2,000 unaccounted bodies of primarily innocent Sikhs at a crematorium in Amritsar in the early 1990s.  He lived for the rights of his land and its people and was murdered for uncovering thousands of state-enforced disappearances, illegal detentions, custodial killings, and mass cremations executed under the orders of the government.

The Valiant is a book on Shahid Jaswant Singh Khalra will be released to commemorate 25th anniversary of his martyrdom, honoring his selflessness, courage and ultimate sacrifice.  Visit www.pippal.org for more info.  The book is being launched on Sunday, October 25 at the Dixie Gurdwara, Brampton, ON Canada and Chandigarh, Punjab simultaneously.

The book has been published in Punjabi as well as English in two separate editions. It is beautifully illustrated bringing to life the awe-inspiring life story of Shahid Jaswant Singh Khalra, while educating, empowering and encouraging young Sikhs to become lifelong activists. It is a must read for all Sikhs, Punjabis, young/old and all those who care about human rights in Punjab and elsewhere.

The ultimate challenge for Sikhs is to train and inculcate the love of reading to all their children and what better way than to get his book which is about a heroic icon of the Sikhs, who most adults can relate to, because if Shahid Jaswant Singh Khalra were alive he would have been 68 years old. His wife Bibi Paramjit Kaur Khalra has tirelessly carried on her husband’s work for the last 25 years. Even their daughter Navkiran Kaur has not stopped her activism on human rights.

Every engaged Sikh needs to spread the word about the book and either get a copy of gift a copy to a young Sikh, so that they learn about a unique part of their living heritage.

Here is what senior human right attorney Sardar Rajwinder Singh of the Punjab and Haryana High Court states,

“But for this work of art and writing, I would not have understood how Jaswant Singh, the man, became part of the glorious heritage of standing up to oppression, challenging the power, and establishing righteousness; transforming into a legend and an inspiration.”

The American Sikh Council (ASC) requests all the gurdwaras across our nation to at least get enough books, so that every child in the gurdwaras and Khalsa schools reads and learns about Shahid Jaswant Singh Khalra.
