Bhagwan Singh Gyanee dubbed “most wanted” in Canada & U.S.

July 4, 1957 – An article is published in the Victoria Daily Times describing Bhagwan Singh Gyanee’s visit to Canada as a “mission of peace and goodwill.” In the article, Gyanee was dubbed the former “most wanted” man in Canada and the United States for his leadership in “the Other Party”—better known as the Ghadar Party—an underground revolutionary movement that fought for India’s independence during the First World War and the 1920s. Gyanee was a resident of Los Angeles.
