Sant Jarnail Singh – Our Hockey Tournament Namesake
Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale was a prominent Sikh religious leader in India during the 20th century. Born in 1947, he became known for his activism in the Sikh community, advocating for Sikh rights and the preservation of Sikh heritage. He gained significant attention during the 1980s as he led a movement for Sikh autonomy, demanding recognition for Punjab’s distinct identity.
Bhindranwale’s stance intensified, leading to clashes with Indian authorities, culminating in the infamous Operation Blue Star in 1984, a military operation to remove him from the Golden Temple complex in Amritsar. His legacy remains a complex and contested aspect of Sikh history.
