Shaheed Bhai Nrimal Singh Chola Sahib Wale...

Please listen to Shaheed Bhaee Nirmal Singh Jee (Chola Sahib Wale) and their Jatha recite the original version of 'Jaago Aaeyaa.'

Shaheed Bhai Nirmal Singh Jee received many threats from the Panjab Police for speaking against the tyranny of the Panjab Police and singing in praise of the Sikh freedom struggle and Singhs. Despite this Bhai Sahib and his Jatha fearlessly sang Vaars (ballards) about tyranny committed against the Sikh nation and the valour of the Sikh defenders of faith throughout Panjab.

Eventually Bhai Sahib was harassed by the Panjab Police and beaten for reciting the following Vaar: 'Eh Khotee Sarkaar Hai Barnaale Dee....' ('This fake government is of Barnala...'). The evil tyrants cut off Bhai Sahib's tongue, gunned him down and then threw his body into a river in a jhoota mukaabalaa (fake encounter). Waheguru. As for their beautiful gift of recitation of Vaaraa(n) the video speaks for itself; they sang from the heart and sang fearlessly.
