Xylitol Posted March 2, 2010 Report Share Posted March 2, 2010 Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ki fateh jeeeoo! Khalsa ji, few days back, Our Sikh brothers were killed in Peshawar, Pakistan for not converting to Islam! After a long time, Sikh blood has been shed in that land, so its an important incident for us! whenever a sikh dies for Guru, his blood gives life to Panth! and this is not a new phenomenon, it all started on 30th May 1606 with Shaheedi of Guru Arjan dev ji! These singh's sacrifice will stand out as a unique example in contemporary history of a sikh's love for his Guru,when Sikh youth,boys and girls are going far from Sikhi, doing beadbi of their Kesh(hairs) and going far from Sikh traditions and proud history! As we slowly come to know abt lives of these singhs, i'll try to share them with you! Today a programme was held in memory of these Shaheeds. Giani Harinder Singh ji Alwar wale were talking abt shaheedi of Bhai Jaspal Singh ji!Giani ji, being a companion of Gyani Sant Singh ji maskeen has good relation with Pakistani and Afghani SIkhs! Bhai Jaspal Singh ji belonged to a rich,well to do family! His family was even ready to pay the ransom amount,but taliban wanted him as a Muslim. He simply refused. His brother told over phone that his scalp was half cut! Just like Bhai Taru Singh was martyred by removing his scalp( khopri), same way talibani fanatics first tried to remove Kesh from his head, not by scissors but by pulling them,and in the process causing immense pain to Bhai Sahib ji!! Due to this inhuman torture(carried out in name of Allah)his scalp was half cut and when they were unable to remove his hairs, his head was cut! But he didnt let them cut his hair! Bhai Jaspal SIngh ji used to do sewa of Jorha-ghar(shoe place of Sangat) everyday and had charan-dhoor of sangat. this purified his mastak, his head so much that Guru accepted him as a Shaheed Son! His Shaheedi should be a wake up call to all those brothers and sisters, who in the wave of fashion and cultural demoralistaion have gone far from SIkhi, and have taken up western lifestyle,forgetting supreme ideals laid down in Gurubaani and rehat of Guru Gobind Singh ji Maharaj! Some people say, why we Sikhs always have to die? Why we are being killed from last 500 years?? Answer is no one is killing us and no one will kill us! we have the choice to live! Who stops us from living?? No one! Our Gurus, Sahibzadeys, Shaheed Singhs were all given a chance to live, but that life was of Dis-honour, that Life was of slavery,that life was to be lived with a dead conscience, as bemukhs of Guru Akaal!!! And Our Gurus and Shaheeds refused to live! NO one kills us,We Sikhs accepted Death ourselves, because Guru Nanak taught us to live with free,living-conscience, with Honour, with Our Guru's Love, as Gurmukhs! And Sikhs will continue to live for Guru and SIkhi, else they'll choose a honourable death! Death of a Shaheed! ਮਃ 1 ਸਲੋਕੁ ॥ ਸੋ ਜੀਵਿਆ ਜਿਸੁ ਮਨਿ ਵਸਿਆ ਸੋਇ ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਜੀਵੈ ਕੋਇ ॥ ਜੇ ਜੀਵੈ ਪਤਿ ਲਥੀ ਜਾਇ ॥ ਸਭੁ ਹਰਾਮੁ ਜੇਤਾ ਕਿਛੁ ਖਾਇ ॥ ਰਾਜਿ ਰੰਗੁ ਮਾਲਿ ਰੰਗੁ ॥ ਰੰਗਿ ਰਤਾ ਨਚੈ ਨੰਗੁ ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਠਗਿਆ ਮੁਠਾ ਜਾਇ ॥ ਵਿਣੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਪਤਿ ਗਇਆ ਗਵਾਇ ॥1॥ Parnaam Shaheeda nu! Dont forget to watch this kavita by Veer Harnavbir Singh! Akaal ji Sahai Mahakaal ji Sahai Kamaljeet SIngh Khalsa Shaheedsar! 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
