This book has been written for some compulsive reasons and meaningful purpose. The first reason is that during my long service in Punjab in the capacity of Judicial Magistrate, Sub divisional Magistrate, Additional Deputy Commissioner and Joint Secretary to Government of Punjab, I have carefully watched and monitored all politico-religious agitations and consequent developments right from the reign of late Partap Singh Kairon to the present day government of Parkash Singh Badal which is still crumblingly lurking on till this last day of 1998.

The Second reason is that during the long stint of service in Punjab, very close and cordial relations with the top leaders of all political parties especially with the leaders of the Shiromani Akali Dal. This book is either based on author’s personal conversations held with the political leaders or his knowledge derived from political and other events.

These events includes intra-contradictions prevailing among the Akali leaders; their confrontation with the discriminatory Congress governments; their conflicts with Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale; and last but not the least, Sant Bhindranwale’s struggle against the offensive launched by the Nirankaris headed by Gurbachan Singh, to subvert the Sikh religion.

Although this book was written in 1985, after assassination of Longowal, yet it could not be published then. Now it is being published so that it may precede or coincide with the tercentenary celebrations of birth of the Khalsa.

They have conveniently forgotten the outstanding services rendered by Sant Bhindranwale who has resuscitated the dead spirit of the Khalsa with his blood. Hence this book is being published on this auspicious occasion to refresh and revive the forgotten memory of the gallant defender.
