Associated with - Sikh Genocide


Sikh Artifacts - None


Sarovar - unknown


Sarai - unknown


Gurdwara Yaadgar Vaisakhi 1978 De Shaheed Sahib is situated on Shaheeda Sahib Road in Amritsar city.

The Gurdwara marks the site where 13 Singhs were cremated after they were martyred for defending Sikhism against planned Nirankari aggression (with hindu and government support).

The Terrorist Police of India supported the killing of 13 unarmed Singh's in cold blood while they were carrying out a peaceful non-violent protest saying prayers.

One of the Singhs, Bhai Fauja Singh, was fired upon by the Superintendent of Police, who emptied his 32-calibre pistol into Bhai Fauja Singh's chest.

In total 5,000-6,000 Nirankaris (carrying rifles, guns, spears, swords, bow and arrows, sticks) attacked with stones, acid bottles, hand-made bombs, firing their guns and throwing spears. The local administration then allowed the main culprits to escape.

Forward 1978 Amritsar Massacre - Sikh Genocide and Bloody Massacre at Amritsar Vaisakhi 1978.

The astonishing thing is that the gathering of the Nirankaris continued for 3.5 hours after this bloody massacre and senior police officers were present in the gathering during the killing of the unarmed Singhs. There has been no justice to this day.
