From The Frontcover Of 'Report of Komagata Maru Committee of Inquiry And Some Further Documents' By Darshan S. Tatla

'We are insulted, we are dishonoured, we are disgraced in all parts of the world because we have no government that will feel for indignities inflicted on us.'

'Humiliated and dishonoured we were sent back. There existed in our breasts a ray of hope that when once in India and the real facts are laid before the Indian government-we would be redressed. But fate was holding a different cup for us at Budge Budge'

'Had the men (police and army officers at Budge Budge) possessed even a grain of sense (they) would have handled the situation with tact and nothing would have occurred at this place to darken the pages of history of the British dominion in India' and 'Sikhs could still have been the dupes and tools in the hands of England'.

Gurdit Singh

 

'The second suggestion is that Gurdit Singh conceived the whole of this scheme purely for his own pecuniary benefit and that he started proceedings by systematically misappropriating the money paid by the passengers, but we find no sufficient evidence to support-this allegation. There is no doubt that Gurdit Singh hoped to obtain considerable pecuniary advantage out of the venture, and if he had succeeded in effecting the entry of these immigrants into Canada within reasonable time, he would have made a very large profit.'
