The Hindu headmaster told Bhindranwale this way Manohar Lal Chopra | Real Story

Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, original name Jarnail Singh, (born 1947, Rodey [or Rode], India—died June 6, 1984, Amritsar), Sikh religious leader and political revolutionary whose campaign to establish a separate Sikh state led to a violent and deadly confrontation with the Indian military in 1984.

Jarnail Singh was born into a Sikh peasant family in a village near Faridkot in what is now southwestern Punjab state, India. He attended a residential Sikh seminary (taksal) in the village of Bhindran (near Sangrur), where students were trained to become granthis (custodians of the gurdwaras [Sikh places of worship]), preachers, and ragis (singers of Sikh sacred hymns). The chief of the Bhindran taksal, Sant Gurbachan Singh, was widely revered. After his death in 1969, one of his followers,

Sant Kartar Singh, moved to Mehta, in northwestern Punjab about 25 miles (40 km) east of Amritsar, and established a new taksal there. Jarnail Singh accompanied him and succeeded him as head of the Mehta taksal after his death in 1977. At some point he took the name Bhindranwale (for Bhindran).
