I was standing at jalandhar station when my attention went towards a Sikh
youth standing near me wearing a Black turban having a long beard and
wearing a kirpan over his shirt looking similar to a terrorist.
After a while, one local train arrived, which was totally packed. The Sikh
youth tried to alight the train but failed to do so. Just then a voice was
heard from the back coach 'Sardarji Barah Baj gaye' (Sir it's 12 o'clock!)
The Sikh youth looked over at that voice maker who was a young Mischievous
type of person and instead of showing any anger made a smile towards him.
The smile made was so enigmatic that it seemed as if some type of truth lies
behind it. Not able to resist my temptation, I walked towards him and asked
why did he smile at that person who teased him. The Sikh youth replied, 'He
was not teasing me but was asking for my Help'. I was surprised with these
words and he told me that there was a big history behind that which one
should know. I was eager to know the History and the Sikh youth narrated:
During 17th Century, when Hindustan was ruled by Mughals, all the Hindu
people were humiliated and were treated like animals. Mughals treated the
Hindu women as there own property and were forcing all Hindus to accept
Islam and even used to kill the people if they were refusing to accept.That
time, our ninth Guru, Sri Guru Teg Bahadarji came forward,in response to a
request of some Kashmir Pandits to fight against all these cruel activities.
Guruji told the Mughal emperor that if he could succeed in converting him to
Islam, all the Hindus would accept the same.
But, if he failed, he should stop all those activities . The Mughal emperor
happily agreed to that but even after lots of torture to Guruji and his
fellow members he failed to convert him to Islam and Guruji along with his
other four fellow members, were tortured and sacrificed their lives in
Chandni Chowk. Since the Mughals were unable to convert them to Islam they
were assassinated.
Thus Guruji sacrificed his life for the protection of Hindu religion. Can
anybody lay down his life and that too for the protection of another
religion? This is the reason he is still remembered as "Hind Ki Chaddar",
shield of India. For the sake of whom he had sacrificed his life, none of
the them came forward to lift his body, fearing that they would also be
Seeing this incident our 10th Guruji, Sri Guru Gobind Singhji (Son of Guru
Teg Bahadarji) founder of khalsa made a resolution that he would convert his
followers to such human beings who would not be able to hide themselves and
could be easily located in thousands. At the start, the Sikhs were very few
in numbers as they were fighting against the Mughal emperors. At that time,
Nadir Shah raided Delhi in the year 1739 and looted Hindustan and was
carrying lot of Hindustan treasures and nearly 2200 Hindu women along with
him. The news spread like a fire and was heard by Sardar Jassa Singh who was
the Commander of the Sikh army at that time. He decided to attack Nadir
Shah's Kafila on the same midnight. He did so and rescued all the Hindu
women and they were safely sent to their homes.
It didn't happen only once but thereafter whenever any Abdaalis or Iranis
had attacked and looted Hindustan and were trying to carry the treasures and
Hindu women along with them for selling them in Abdal markets, the Sikh army
although fewer in numbers but were brave hearted and attacked them at
midnight,12 O'clock and rescued women.
After that time when there occurred a similar incidence, people started to
contact the Sikh army for their help and Sikhs used to attack the raider's
at Midnight, 12 O'clock. Nowadays, these "smart people" and some Sikh
enemies who are afraid of Sikhs, have spread these words that at 12
O'clock, the Sikhs go out of their senses. This historic fact was the
reason which made me smile over that person as I thought that his Mother or
Sister would be in trouble and wants my help and was reminding me by saying
off 'Sardarji Barah Baj Gaye'
Plz do forward this mail to all ur friends so they can know about sikh
history & its a humble appeal PLEASE dont make fun of RELIGIONS ! as every
religion is as pure as urs.

Yes ,

even I had more respect for Sikhs when I looked deeper into their fights & sacrifices esp in times of Aurangzeb when the Sikh forces were cheated by Rajputs and Mughals in a single night by promisng them safe passage and then attacking them in the dead of night combinedly!! That was an eye opener .

I have respected Sikhs for their character and religious diktats & I wish that this doesnt culminate into a religious discussion as Canadian desi echoes universality .

An eye opnener. I have read Sikh history a lot and in particular the era of 9th and 10th guru. I respet them too much and salute them for their brave history, the sacrifice they made for the cause of religon and humanity.

Live and Let Live. Together we can make a difference.

The rift between hindus and Sikhs should be cleared soon. the sikhs have done so many sacrifices for India but the 1984 riots have spoled the relations.
