See this shabad below it relates to the account in ANG 360 of Guru Nanak Dev ji and the attack Babar had the last bit is interesting in which Guru sahib ask didn't you feel any compassion. These days in modern world many great evils happen and people who believed in God loose belief some Sikhs probably lost faith after 1947 and 1984 some sang this shabad in tribute. Could it be a since question why didn't you feel compassion. Also Mardana asked guru nanak when babur attacked why he killed all the pathans, guru ji told him to sleep under a tree and when he wakes he will know the answer, he did so, while mardana was sleeping a drop of honey fell on him after which he was covered in ants and was bite after which he killed all the ants. Guru Nanak said there is your answer you were bitten by one ant but you killed all of them.

The Creator Himself does not take the blame, but has sent the Mogal as the messenger of death.

There was so much slaughter that the people screamed. Didn't You feel compassion, Lord? ||1||

Mar mar jīvai ṯā kicẖẖ pā▫e Nānak nām vakẖāṇe. ||3||5||39||

Only one who dies to his ego while yet alive, obtains the blessings, O Nanak, by chanting the Lord's Name. ||3||5||39||
