Does anyone know how the Sikh soldiers kept Guru Granth Sahib Ji in the world wars? How did the sikh soldiers give proper respect to Guru ji during the time of the world wars (especially given the fact that hygiene was pretty hard to maintain in the trenches)? I also came across this blog when my curiosity was aroused. http://amanpreet-singh.blogspot.com/2012/03/one-inch-saroop-of-guru-granth-sahib-ji.html Where did the Singhs keep the one-inch saroop of Guru Granth Sahib, knowing they would have to crawl on the ground, etc?
Guest posted a topic in Gurbani | Gurmat | Spiritual Poetry and DiscussionsI came across some Information stating that there were some compositions of the SGGS that were at some point taken out as they were concidered to be false. "The puraatan (old) saroops that did or do include Raagmala (like Bhai Banno Beerh) also included other compositions after Mundaavni (but before Raagmala), such as: (i) Jit Dar Lakh Mohammada, (ii) Siahi Di Bhidhi, (iii) Ratanmala, (iv) Hakeekatrah mukam, (v) Praan Sangli, (vi) Rab Mukam Ki Sabk, (vii) Baye Atisb (16 saloks) etc. All seven of these compositions that existed after Mundaavni (but before Raagmala) were all unanimously discredited by the Panth and it was acknowledged that mischievous individuals had over time included these compositions at the end of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji but had no standing against gurbani" my questions are : is this above true ? if so, when we're these compositions out into SGGS ? How long were they in there and when were they taken out ? And by whom? do we still have copies of them ? who is bahi banoo beerah? thanks
A friend of mine sent me this article titled: Watch Muslims protecting Gurudwara Sahib in Malerkotla Link: http://www.punjabspectrum.news/2015/10/2652 The fighting as I understand it is between rival Sikh sects,and exacerbated by the Indian government with their heavy handed and tyrannical approach to dealing with minorities in India. I found this particularly interesting as this is happening in Malerkotla, the place where Muslims were killed by extreme Sikhs (lead by Sabah Singh Bedi) in the 1870s, over Muslims slaughtering cows for food. It nice to see how Muslims in the region have moved past that history and are helping their Sikh friends in protecting the Granth Sahib I'm sure such stories are present in all faiths and around the globe, I came across this recently - thought I'd share it.
