I was standing at Dadar 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

1980's). After a

while, one local train arrived, which was totally


The Sikh youth tried to board the train but failed to

do so.

Just then, a teasing voice was heard from the back

coach, "SARDAR JI


BAJ GAYE" (Sir, it is 12 o'clock!). The young Sikh

youth looked at the

voice maker who was a young mischievous type of


Instead of showing any anger, the Sikh smiled

pleasantly at him.

The smile was puzzling and it seemed some sort of

truth lies behind it.

Not able to resist my temptation, I walked towards him

and asked why

did he

smile back at the person who is tormenting him.

The Sikh youth replied, 'He was not teasing me but was


HELP". I was surprised with his reply, and he informed

me that there is


important history behind that remark of - 12 o'clock,

which one should


I was eager to learn and the Sikh youth Narrated:

During the 17th


when Mughals ruled India, the Hindu people were

humiliated and treated



The Mughals treated the Hindu women as their personal

property and were

forcing Hindus to accept Islam and even used to kill

the people if they

refused to do so.

At the time, our ninth Guru, Sri Guru Teg Bhadar Ji

came forward, in

response to requests by Kashmiri Pandits to fight

against these cruel

activities. Guru Ji informed the Mughal emperor that

if he succeeded in

converting him to Islam, then all Hindus would accept

the same fate,


should he fail to do so, he should stop all these


The Mughal emperor happily agreed to this, even after



torture to Guru Ji and their followers, the emperor

failed to convert


to Islam. As the Mughals were unsuccessful in

converting them, Guru Ji

along with four of his followers were wickedly

tortured and

assassinated at

Chandni Chowk, Delhi, where now stands the 'SHEESH

burning under it, the


sand was then poured over their head). They sacrificed

their life for


cause, but did not convert. Thus, Guru Ji sacrificed

his life for the

protection of the Hindu people.

But, for the sake of whom Guru Ji had sacrificed their

life, none of

Can anybody lay down his life and that too for the

protection of


religion? This is the reason they are still remembered

as "Hind Ki

Chaddar", (Shield of India.) Seeing this incident our

tenth Guru Ji,


Guru Gobind Singh Ji (Son of Guru Teg Bahadar Ji),

founder of Khalsa,

they would face the enemy like men (presence of

observed that when the Mughals would attack villages

and kill Hindu

men, to

eliminate the Hindu religion from the face of the

earth. Whereas,

Sikhs were very few in number and were greatly

it is very difficult to fight against Sikhs as the

Sikhs get some Extra

Power to save Religion, Nation and Humanity. Nobody

can fight and win

If it were not for the Sikhs, today India would be a

writers have confirmed

this in their writings.
