Gurmehar Kaur was born to Rajvinder Kaur and Captain Mandeep Singh in Jalandhar. She completed her education at Harvest International School, Ludhiana. Her father, Mandeep Singh, was one of the seven Indian Army personnel martyred at 1:15 am IST after a Rashtriya Rifle camp was attacked by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir on 6 August 1999. Kaur holds a degree in Literature from Lady Shri Ram College for Women.
On 28 April 2016, a video was uploaded to Facebook by Voice of Ram (Ram Subramanian), featuring Gurmehar Kaur. The video was also uploaded to YouTube by Voice of Ram. Gurmehar Kaur launched the #ProfileForPeace campaign in April 2016, questioning the calibre of leadership of India and Pakistan in the video, and advocating "peace" between India and Pakistan. She styled herself as a "soldier for peace" fighting against war.
The video went viral in February 2017, after Gurmehar came forward with a social media message against ABVP at Delhi University, a student federation belonging to the Sangh Parivar. It attracted much controversy and ridicule, particularly a statement: "Pakistan did not kill my dad, war killed him."
In 2017, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs of India Kiren Rijiju commented on her video that 'Some Political forces are behind her statements (Spoiling the minds of the students)'. Former cricketer Virender Sehwag posted an image saying, "I didn't score triple centuries, my bat did". Javed Akhtar also commented on this issue as he counterattacked on all those who were against Gurmehar.
She started Save DU campaign against ABVP in February 2017 in which she opposed the violence that erupted at the Ramjas College Campus after the lectures of Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid Shora were cancelled due to ABVP's protest. She received death and rape threats for starting this campaign and later on she left the campaign.
In September 2019 she joined Somerville College, Oxford University, and is pursuing her MSc in Modern South Asian Studies.
Gurmehar's father Mandeep Singh was one of seven army personnel killed after a Rashtriya Rifle camp was attacked by militants.
