Know Your Roots ft Sikhs And Hindus

Must Read

The nuisance of the Khalistani separatists is felt not only in India but across countries like UK, Australia and Canada. Their funders have deep pockets and the fundings are supplied in plenty to create enough nuisance. They speak of creating a Khalistan for Sikhs but are sadly unaware of what Sikhism is all about. Their brute attitude and terror like activities make them anything but Sikhs. Just because one wears a turban and speaks Punjabi does not mean that they are Sikh. Sikhs have morals and a mutual culture with Hindus. But who will explain this to these ignorant rioters out on the streets?!

Misrepresenting Sikhism

The history of Sikhism has been toyed around a lot, specially by the Britishers. They needed the militant force of Hindus and Sikhs and created a subtle divide in the subconscious. Thus started the slow, poison of separation which was percolated to divide the two. Under this misguided cover, the Separatists furthered this divide by creating false narratives on Sikhism and spreading the misrepresentation to every possible order.

Clearing The Falsehoods

Whilst many Separatists tried spewing venom against the celebration of Diwali by Sikhs, they were slapped with facts! The divide was furthered by certain Khalistani supporters chastising the celebration of Diwali by the Sikhs.

These individuals needed a reminder that Guru Gobind ji has compiled the beautiful Bhakti composition on Sri Rama’s return to Ayodhya in exquisite Awadhi-Persian patois.

The handwritten letter by Guru Tegh Bahadur, asking the congregation of Pak Pattan to visit Guru Hargobind for Diwali. He was the son of Guru Hargobind.

Guru Hargobind’s grandson, Guru Gobind Singh Ji himself wrote this dated 5 Oct 1699, or after formation of Khalsa. He too is asking congregation of Naushera Pannuan to visit him for Diwali not for Bandi Chor Divas as propagated by certain sects of Separatists in Sikhs.

The youngest consort of Guru Gobind Singh and “Mother of Khalsa”, Mata Sahib Devi, guiding celebration in HariMandir two decades after Guru’s death. Clearly the two biggest festivals were Baisakhi and Diwali.

Guru Gobind Singh’s oldest closest disciple, Bhai Mani Singh, who in his 90s was mμrdered in manner so gruesome because he wanted to celebrate Diwali in HarMandir when it was still so precarious in Punjab!

Further, Ahmad Shah Abdali had completely blown up & desecrated HarMandir. While reconstruction was still not over & there was danger of further attacks, Diwali was so important to Sikhs that large number still gathered at Amritsar (then Ramdaspur). Attack did come year later.

These are just a few facts that date back to a few centuries.

The Gurus Worshipping Devi

The most common image of Maa Durga is very pertinent. In her three hands she holds blessings of Abhaya Mudra (gesture of fearlessness), Conch (given by LordVaruna), Lotus (given by Ocean). The rest five hands hold the weapons. Interestingly, Guru Gobind also commanded bearing five weapons! In fact there used to be an imagery of Guru Gobind Singh in the Golden Temple till a century ago. It showcased Guru Gobind bowing before Maa Durga seeking her blessings before the Dharma Yudha, before the evangelized Singh Sabha pulled it down.
The sword of the sixth Guru, Hargobind Ji, who was Guru Gobind’s grandfather had his name in Persian and the image of Maa Kali on the blade.

In the Panda Vahi of Guru Hargobind’s son Guru Tegh Bahadur, when he visited Prayag, he calls himself worshipper of Naina Devi. Years later Guru Tegh Bahadur’s son Guru Gobind would visit same spot and sign under it. Years later, Guru Gobind Singh paid homage to Naina Devi before sacrificing his life for Kashmiri Pandits’ religion. Infact he also offered a copper plate at Naina Devi which reads “Bow to Naina” in Gurmukhi script.

Will The Petty Separatists Ever Learn?

While these are but a few examples of the link between the Hindus and the Sikhs, these filthy Separatists want to destroy the camaraderie the two communities share. However, it is now up to the wiser sections of the communities to become aware again about their roots – to know their common grounds and realise that they are not different from one another. This awareness is also going to be a tight slap across the face of the disgusting Separatists!
