A religious extremist who justified violence as a means to achieve the end results. In fact, he was just a tool being used by the external forces who operated from Canada & U.S.A. to teach India a lesson for being in the camp of former Soviet Union.

Controversial leader of the Damdami Taksal, a Sikh religious group. He tried to spread his perceived values of Sikhism. Was arrested for his suspected involvement in the murder of Jagat Narain but left due to lack of evidence. Bhindranwale is more notable for his involvement in Operation Blue Star in which he occupied the Akal Takht complex, including the Golden Temple, in Amritsar and was killed by the army. Sikhs view him as a martyr who was fighting for the interests of their community other see him as a militant.

To some, he is a freedom fighter and to the rest he is a terrorist. And this goes to Subhash Chandra Bose and Velu pillai Prabhakaran also.

Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale's son Ishar Singh today has quoted that his father was misunderstood. Dn't know what he was but certainly not a saint.
