  8. He was invited to Ludhiana to lay a foundation-stone of the Guru Tegh Bahadur Charitable Hospital. When the Sant reached there, about fifteen to twenty people got up from the gathering and wanted to garland the Sant. Seeing this the Sant came back. The organisers went behind him and asked for the reason. The Sant replied, “To get up from the gathering and to garland an individual in the presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib is the direct insult of our great Guru.” On this all the organisers apologised. All of them were sent to the congregation by the Sant and he himself went alone. First of all he bowed before Sri Guru Granth Sahib. He told them that none is greater than Sri Guru Granth Sahib, does not matter he may be on some very high official position. The 300th martyrdom day of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur was celebrated on 7th December 1975A.D. in Ram Lila Ground, Delhi. There was a gathering of about 22 lakh people. Everybody got up when Smt. Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of India came there. It was only Sant Kartar Singh Ji Bhindranwale who did not stand up and kept sitting. He condemned it in strong words from the same stage. Certain people spoke from the rostrum and said that Smt. Indira Gandhi has established relationship with Punjab. The then Prime Minister Smt. Indira Gandhi said, “The same Delhi Darbar which had martyred Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur is bowing towards him on his 300th martyrdom day.” The Sant Kartar spoke after Smt. Indira Gandhi. He started his speech with the slogan : I may sacrifice my head but not Sikhism. He said in his speech, “In medieval period Rajputs used to get bounties after giving their daughters. Today this will be a curse on the Sikhs if they follow them suit. Therefore none should give his daughter to such a person who has himself insulted his hair.” He said the following lines from the Rahtnama ‘One who gives daughter to a Sikh and does not take anything, only he is my Sikh and would go to heaven.’ In an other sentence the Sant said, “We want to ask Indira Gandhi, who has managed the throne of Delhi for you ? If you have come to bow before Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur this is not a favour to anybody. Had Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur not sacrificed himself, some Muslim might have been on the throne of Delhi, who must have been circumcised. There would have been Islam on every side and Bibi Indira might have under some veil. “If the Prime Minister sacrifices her head as many times as there are hair on her body, even then she cannot pay off the debt of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur’s sacrifice. Howsoever big a Prime Minister might be, he is not bigger than our great Guru. Such a big Prime Minister should bow before Sri Guru Granth Sahib and we should not get up to greet him.” There were slogans on all the four sides on these words of the Sant. Only these words were the main reason of the tussle between the Damdami Taksal and Srimati Indira Gandhi. The Sant would never tolerate anything against Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Via Damdami Taksal
  9. Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh One time the sangat at Bengal did a benti to Sant Baba Sundar Singh Ji Bhindranwale to come over there and do parchar of this beautiful marg of Satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj. A Gurmat Smagam was held in Calcutta, West Bengal. A lot of sangat had gathered there to listen to the Gurmat Parchar of Mahapursh. Amongst the sangat there was a tantric Yogi. He had seen the huge crowds which had gathered and jealousy entered his mind. He began to think to himself that I have all the tantric powers in my hands. If I was to utter a spell and place it on this Mahapursh then all these people/sangat will begin to follow me. In this way as Santji was walking past the tantric Yogi, the yogi began to utter a spell and threw a copper wire at Santji. At the time the spell was uttered/thrown Santji was uttering Sri Mool Mantar Sahib Ji. As the pavan pavitar amrit bani of Maharaj was being uttered the spell bounced off Santji and fell upon the Yogi. Those who were present began to hear the Yogi scream in pain as his body began to burn. Just then Santji moved towards the Yogi and with his hand touched the Yogi and blessed him. As soon as Santji did this all the Yogi's pain and suffering ended and he was brought to the plane of peace. From that day everytime Santji used to go past that place the tantric yogi would stand up with his hands folded and head bowed towards Santji. One day some Singhs asked Santji why this Yogi who had never got up before or shown any respect to Santji had all of a sudden changed. Santji smiled and said this is the kirpa of Satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj. The Singhs began to say Santji you are keeping something from us, please do kirpa. Santji then began to explain what had happened. He said that this Yogi had made thousands follow him through his spells and intended to do the same to Santji and the sikh sangat. But he didn't know that Santji was one who recited Sri Mool Mantar Sahib Ji 24 hours a day. If someone tries to place a spell on one who recites Sri Mool Mantar Sahib it is like trying to throw something up into the sky - it's only going to come back in one direction. Akho Satnaam Sri Waheguru. Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj. Guru Sahib Kirpa Karo especially in this day and age where many people try to use spells to take away our brothers and sisters. Loose translation from katha by Sant Avtar Singh Ji Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh

  11. WJKK WJKF I would like to ask your opinions on a few things and also showcase just how terrible Badal and other Akalis were and are. 1. Can we attain freedom/ Anandpur resolution while still remaining apart of India? or must we break free completely, I recall Sant Ji saying in one of his speeches that we aren't asking for khalistan but if it is offered we will take it and not repeat the mistake of 1947. Now the Akali betrayal post as recently around the general sangat (not just this site) some people fell that the Badals and Akali crimes are only being power hungry and controlling the SGPC. Thing is Badal and other Akalis sold out the panth and got Sikhs killed no better than Indira.
  12. Introduction Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale is an iconic figure whose name is well known to Sikhs worldwide. He is remembered as a true Sikh, saint, warrior, upholder of justice and a martyr. His extensive preaching of the Sikh religion, speeches on politics and exposing the barbarity of the Indian government earned him fame within Sikh circles. He was looked upon as a leader of the Sikhs who had reminded them of their glorious past, great sacrifices and bold feats of destroying oppression, tyranny and injustice. His words kindled and awakened the inner spirits of the Sikhs and caused them to realize their political and religious slavery at the hands of the Indian government. The reminder of Sikh history and religious tenets inspired the Sikh people to become true followers of their faith. People started to abandon drinking, smoking, cutting their hair and many other immoral practices. There was widespread adoption of the Sikh religion. All of this, however, did not at all suit those who were keen on seeing the complete downfall of the Sikhs and their complete amalgamation into the folds of Hinduism. In order to destroy and subdue the Sikh movement; it became a pertinent task for the government to eliminate Sant Jarnail Singh as well as crush the Sikh awakening. As a result, an attack was launched under the name of Operation Blue Star in which holiest shrine of the Sikhs, Darbar Sahib (Sri Harmandar Sahib, Sri Akal Takhat Sahib and other places in the vicinity) as well as tens of Sikh Gurdwaras were attacked. Sant Jarnail Singh and many of his companions became martyrs defending the holy place. Thousands of Sikh visitors were killed and thousands were taken prisoners. Sikh Reference Library containing rare manuscripts, history books and literature was destroyed. The amount of damage caused to the Sikh religion was immense. It was an attack on Sikh spirit and sought to instill fear in the hearts of Sikhs with the intention of coercing them into accepting the rule of the Indian government and forsaking their freedom. It was no less than a holocaust. However, the Indian government with the help of its paid writers and media resorted to propaganda to save its face and justify its heinous crimes.. Being the proponents of the government, paid writers wrote scores of books and articles to malign the name of Sant Jarnail Singh by portraying him as a terrorist, and a violent and dangerous man. Many excuses were devised to misrepresent the Sikh movement and justify the attack and atrocities committed by the Indian military. As the common saying goes, repeat a lie often enough and people will believe it uninformed people, including some Sikhs ignorant of the true facts, began to believe the lies of the government. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to refute misconceptions about Sant Jarnail Singh, examine many of the propaganda theories put forth by the government agents, bring the actual facts to the limelight and show that it was in fact the Indian military that was violent, aggressive and terroristic.

  13. First of all I don't hold the views of this article merely bringing this to light. Sikh Times it seems is also under false propaganda in one point saying Sant Ji was a gender discriminiser... Thoughts on this article - 5 Myths are also lies and cite Hindustani Times and such other filth.Myth #5: Bhindranwale Survived Operation Bluestar and Is Alive and Well Damdami Taksal is the influential religious school, once located in the village Bhinder5, where Bhindranwale was initially a student and eventually jathedar (head priest). The seminary's current jathedar, Thakur Singh, has continued to maintain that Bhindranwale is still alive.6 According to Lt. Gen. Kuldip Singh Brar, who commanded Operation Bluestar, '[the bodies] of Bhindranwale and Shahbeg were identified by a number of agencies including the police, the I.B. [intelligence Bureau] and militants in our custody.'7 Bhindranwale's brother is also reported to have identified Bhindranwale's body.8 Pictures of what appears to be Bhindranwale's body have been published in at least two widely circulated books.9,10 Whereas there can be little doubt that Bhindranwale is no more, the circumstances of his final moments remain shrouded in mystery. The New York Times reported three distinct versions of Bhindranwale's death. Veteran B.B.C. correspondent Mark Tully relates an incident during Bhindranwale's funeral. Captain Bhardwaj 'on lifting the sheet to make sure it was Bhindranwale [asked] the police why the Sant's [sant is an honorific title analogous to Saint] body was so badly battered.' A police officer replied, 'The extremists broke his bones.'11 At the other end of the spectrum lies Dilbir Singh's account. Dilbir Singh was 'Public Relations Advisor at Guru Nanak Dev University for seven years [and] was with the Sant constantly from 1978 until the last week of his life.' He was also 'at that time a correspondent of the Tribune and formerly of the Patriot.' He stated, 'In the fight Bhindranwale was injured on the right side of his temple. A government doctor verified he was captured alive. He was tortured to death.'12 R.K. Bajaj, a correspondent for Surya magazine, is said to have confirmed that 'he had personally seen a photograph of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale in army custody.'13 Myth #4: Bhindranwale Was a Man of Religion Without Political Ambition Bhindranwale made repeated claims to the effect that he had no interest in political power, 'If I ever become president of the Akali Dal or the S.G.P.C. [shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee], an M.L.A., a government minister, or a member of parliament . . . I shall deserve a shoe-beating by you.'14,15 In contrast, we have the following examples of Bhindranwale's abundant political aspirations year after year: During the S.G.P.C. elections of 1979, 'Of the forty candidates Bhindranwale put up [for a total of 140 seats], all but four were defeated.'16 'For all his protestations that he was not a politician, Bhindranwale campaigned actively for the Congress in three constituencies' during the 1980 general elections.17 During the 1981 elections to the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (D.S.G.P.C.), 'in an attempt to divide Akali votes, the Congress (I) had asked the A.I.S.S.F. [All India Sikh Students Federation] to put up candidates for the Delhi gurdwaras whose campaign was led by Sant Bhindranwale. No A.I.S.S.F. candidate won.'18 At one point in 1983, the Talwandi-Tohra faction of the Akali Dal got a section of the S.G.P.C. to recommend Bhindranwale for the position of jathedar of the Akal Takht.19 According to India Today, in the months leading up to Operation Bluestar about a third of Longowal's S.G.P.C. members and district Akali Dal presidents had 'defected' to Bhindranwale.20 The Darbar Sahib's Public Relations Officer (P.R.O.) Narinderjit Singh Nanda recalled, 'Bhindranwale told me that within thirty days he was taking over the S.G.P.C.'21 However, given his poor record in electoral politics and a disinclination to play by the rules, he had little incentive to seek formal political office. He was already 'the uncrowned emperor.'22 As articulated by Time magazine, 'Bhindranwale had become so popular he had usurped the Akalis' authority.'23 He wielded more informal power than all of Punjab's formal political players combined and liked the idea of 'keeping all factions chasing his favor [whereby] no faction made a move in Punjab without considering the response it would draw from Bhindranwale.'24 Bhindranwale operated 'from inside a whale,'25 seemingly without concern for other points of view. 'In this independence lay much of Bhindranwale's appeal.'26 Yet, the same aloofness also represented his most significant weakness: a failure to participate in the democratic process. 'Villagers came to him with their problems, Bhindranwale pronounced judgments and called frightened policemen on the telephone to instruct them on how a matter was to be settled.'27 Subhash Kirpekar was 'perhaps the last journalist to meet the lion in his den.' During the interview Bhindranwale responded thus to a question on succession planning, 'It is not an elective post. I think whosoever attains the status of God will come up as my successor.'28 Myth #3: Bhindranwale Did Not Demand Khalistan In the absence of a universally accepted definition of the term 'Khalistan,' the usage here is consistent with its origin wherein Dr. Vir Singh Bhatti envisioned it in 1940 as a 'theocratic' monarchy, which would by definition be inconsistent with the Indian Constitution.29 Bhindranwale's standard response to the question of Khalistan, an independent Sikh state, was noncommittal: 'we are not in favor of Khalistan nor are we against it.'30 He often also clarified that if Khalistan came about, 'We won't reject it. We shall not repeat the mistake of 1947.'31 To that he added, 'if the Indian Government invaded the Darbar Sahib complex, the foundation for an independent Sikh state will have been laid.'32 The book Fighting for Faith and Nation: Dialogues with Sikh Militants by Cynthia Keppley Mahmood has received wide acceptance among radical Sikhs. In the book, Harpal Singh recalls a meeting with Bhindranwale during which the preacher remarked, 'staying in India would mean the genocide of the Sikhs.'33 The implication that anything short of a separate state would spell eventual disaster for the Sikhs amounted to an implicit vote for Khalistan. On other occasions Bhindranwale was more explicit, 'Frankly, I don't think the Sikhs can live with or within India.'34 The Dal Khalsa, responsible for hoisting a Khalistan flag at a Sikh convention on March 20, 1982 at Anandpur Sahib, were seen forming a protective ring around Bhindranwale when, in 1981, he was holding the police at bay at Chowk Mehta in an attempt to avoid arrest.35 Although 'Bhindranwale was never openly associated with the Dal Khalsa,' most observers regarded it as 'Bhindranwale's party.'36 In early 1983, India's intelligence is said to have obtained a copy of a letter from Bhindranwale to Jagjit Singh Chauhan in which he promised full support for Khalistan.37 Finally, while we're on the subject, we might as well also cover one other related myth, i.e. that Khalistan has never had any substantial support amongst Sikhs in India. In an interview with B.B.C. correspondent Mark Tully just days before his death, S.G.P.C. President Gurcharan Singh Tohra answered a question about his personal views on Khalistan by admitting that 'some personal desires are better kept hidden.'38 According to Ved Marwah, a former senior police officer on Indira Gandhi's 'select committee for monitoring Punjab affairs,' a majority of the Sikhs supported separatism in the wake of Operation Bluestar.39 In a recent interview,40 Lt. Gen. Kuldip Singh Brar estimated that if Khalistan had been declared prior to Operation Bluestar, 'a large section of the Punjab police might have crossed over to support Bhindranwale.' Overly optimistic claims by pro-India commentators that the Sikhs have 'moved on' are consistently belied by informed parties who note, '[Operation Bluestar] has not been forgotten, and you [the visitor] will find many people in Amritsar keen to explain the Sikh side of the story.'41 Myth #2: Only a Tiny Minority of Sikhs Revere Bhindranwale as a Martyr In Khushwant Singh's words, '[Operation Bluestar] gave the movement for Khalistan its first martyr in Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale.'42 In 1985, Harkishan Singh Surjeet had optimistically announced that Bhindranwale's martyr status would only be 'temporary.'43 However, on this day last year, Joginder Singh Vedanti, the jathedar of the Akal Takht, an approximate Sikh counterpart to the Vatican, formally declared Bhindranwale a 'martyr' and awarded his son, Ishar Singh, a siropa (robe of honor).44 The function was organized by the S.G.P.C., 'a sort of parliament of the Sikhs.'45 The Encyclopedia of Sikhism, edited by Harbans Singh, a widely respected scholar of Sikh studies, describes Bhindranwale as 'a phenomenal figure of modern Sikhism.'46 Bhindranwale's posters and speeches are among the 'most popular' items at Punjab's rural fairs, held on occasions such as the Hola Mohalla festival.47 Gurtej Singh Brar, a former I.A.S. officer and S.G.P.C. National Professor of Sikhism, was suspended from the I.A.S. for making the following statement: 'The Sikh nation theory has been current among the Sikhs since the time of Guru Nanak. There should be others like Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale to lead the Sikhs and take up their cause of righteousness and truth.'48 Several North American gurdwaras prominently display Bhindranwale's pictures at entrances and in langar (community kitchen) halls. This writer has personally witnessed the phenomenon at gurdwaras in Detroit, Michigan and Toronto, Ontario (see picture). In the words of Vir Sanghvi, one of India's leading political commentators, '[bhindranwale] remains a martyr in the eyes of many Sikhs. Even today, rare is the Sikh politician who will dare to call him what he was: a fanatic and a murderer.'49 Myth #1: Bhindranwale Was Not a Terrorist In 1985, Citizens for Democracy (C.F.D.), founded by Jayaprakash Narayan and chaired by the noted civil libertarian Justice V.M. Tarkunde, produced a report on the Punjab crisis. The report, banned in India because of its strong indictment of the state, has received wide acceptance within the diaspora Sikh community despite its acknowledgement of 'Bhindranwale's role in inciting violence.'50 Violent thoughts seemed second nature to Bhindranwale. He often made extremely cruel remarks with utmost sincerity, 'If a true Sikh drinks, he should be burnt alive.'51 Tavleen Singh discovered that in Bhindranwale's darbar (court), 'concepts like non-violence were mocked and sneering remarks made about Gandhi.'52 Perhaps Khushwant Singh said it best, 'He well understood that hate was a stronger passion than love.'53 Although the 'mad monk'54 was politically astute enough to recant vicious statements made in the heat of the moment, it is instructive to note just how bellicose he was when aroused. Harmit Singh Batra was in the Darbar Sahib complex on April 13, 1978 and quotes Bhindranwale, 'We will not allow this Nirankari convention to take place. We are going to march there and cut them to pieces!'55 Following the clash with the Nirankaris on April 13, 1978, the 'Sant' and his cohorts were always armed. Bhindranwale often publicly recited his mantra, 'being armed, there is no sin greater than not seeking justice.'56 And they perceived plenty of injustice all around, which they rectified with the use of illegal force. After the assassination of the Nirankari leader Gurbachan Singh on April 24, 1980, Bhindranwale is universally acknowledged to have remarked that if he ever met Ranjit Singh, the suspected killer, he would weigh him in gold (i.e. reward him with his weight in gold).57 On October 22, 1982, Bhindranwale made a public statement threatening the 'political and physical end' of anyone who didn't press for the full implementation of the Anandpur Sahib Resolution.58 On August 17, 1983, Bhindranwale asked Sikh youth to buy a motorcycle and a revolver and threatened to kill 5,000 Hindus in an hour if the police delayed the minibus he had sent to fetch Amrik Singh who had just been released from police custody.59 During a speech on September 20, 1983, Bhindranwale stated clearly that he would 'embrace' Sikhs who exacted revenge upon those who were guilty of torturing, killing, or humiliating Sikhs. He said, 'Getting away from there is your job, protecting you here [in the Darbar Sahib complex] is mine.'60 On November 17, 1983, Bhindranwale bluntly demanded 'that all Hindus should leave Punjab.'61 During a public speech delivered on May 24, 1984 at the Darbar Sahib complex, Bhindranwale openly admitted his complicity in the gruesome beheading of Surinder Singh Chinda for his role in the elimination of Bhindranwale's leading hit man, Surinder Singh Sodhi.62 Even Bhindranwale's staunchest supporters only go as far as stating, 'Bhindranwale consistently opposed violence against any innocent person.'63 The autocratic Bhindranwale had assumed singular jurisdiction over the guilt and innocence of a good portion of India's citizens. And to him lethal violence was a justified means of punishment for those whom he considered culpable. He was the legislature, executive and judiciary all rolled into one with complete disregard for the democratic concept of the separation of powers. The result was nothing short of 'ethnic cleansing.'64 Dilbir Singh (see above) related the following account of how masterfully Bhindranwale ordered the killing of Lala Jagat Narain, proprietor-editor of the Hind Samachar group of newspapers: And in one edition Lala had written in an editorial comment that Taura [Tohra, then president of the S.G.P.C.] and Ajnoha [then jathedar of the Akal Takht] are traitors. On that day in a great fury he [bhindranwale] called upon someone to read aloud what Lala had said. There was quiet. 'Our turban has been torn from our heads,' he proclaimed. Then one of his followers asked, 'What are your orders?' Again in anger, he said 'Orders, you need orders! What orders? Are you blind?' Now you see he did not say anything. And they said it. 'O.K.' meaning thereby, we'll finish this man. So, then, 3-4 days later, Lala was coming from Ludhiana and they fired upon him.65 According to Chand Joshi, a veteran correspondent for The Hindustan Times, 'In the Nirankari Baba murder case, for instance, the C.B.I. claimed to have pin-pointed four suspects including Jarnail Singh Brar alias Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. The arrest warrants had been given to the Punjab police but were not served because of 'orders from the highest quarters.' '66 It is worth noting, 'The decision to release Bhindranwale was taken by the [indira Gandhi and Zail Singh] government. It was not the verdict of a court.'67 Finally, it is impossible to accept that the people closest to Bhindranwale could consistently perpetrate monstrous violence without his endorsement. Nachhatar Singh, arrested by the police for the murder of Lala Jagat Narain, is said to have fingered Bhindranwale for ordering the killing.68 The hijackers of an Indian Airlines plane on September 20, 1981 claimed to be members of the Dal Khalsa and demanded the release of Bhindranwale, who had been arrested in connection with the murder of Lala Jagat Narain.69 In a speech, Bhindranwale 'praised his young lieutenants' for the hijacking.70 On July 18, 1982, a police party from the Beas Thana in Amritsar district stopped a jeep. Most of the occupants were residents of Bhindranwale's gurdwara Gurdarshan Parkash at Chowk Mehta. They attacked the police and were arrested. No case was initiated.71 The next day, Amrik Singh, Bhindranwale's most trusted lieutenant, and six close associates of Bhindranwale, including Bhindranwale's personal driver Kulwant Singh, were arrested for an attempt on the life of Joginder Singh Sandhu, the Nirankari Mandal's propaganda secretary.72 Concluding Remarks In closing, here is a sampling of additional points to ponder: Whereas 'nobody was ever refused an interview,'73 he refused to surrender to anyone but sufficiently orthodox Sikh policemen.74 While he professed the highest standards of Sikhism, he practiced gender discrimination.75 Although he viewed modernity as evil, he had no compunctions about using modern firearms. Whereas many Sikhs regard him as a 'messiah,'76 his 1984 prophecy failed to materialize: 'In the next ten years Sikhs will get their liberation. This will definitely happen.'77
  14. Waheguru Ji Ka khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh !! So I just thought I would collate some thoughts on something that I watched over the weekend, and thought it would be a good discusson topic. So please sangat do reply! As it was Father's Day over the weekend, I decided to buy my Dad 'Mandela' on DVD, as he has a great passion for Nelson Mandela. We have had many conversations about Nelso Mandela, and how many similarities there are between Sant Jarnail Singh Ji and himself. My Dad has already held the view that there are no similarities as (and I quote) 'Nelson Mandela fought a just war agaisnt tyranny and chose the path of peace, whereas Sant Jarnail Singh Ji chose violence as an answer to gain political power'. Watching the film and doing some research on Mandela, I have found my Dads view to be a bit flawed. Nelson Mandela started off with an extremely violent agitation against the Minority rule in SA, and even whilst he was in Prison the violence was further insighted by his wife Winnie. Even after he was released there was even further communal violence. Now with that in mind, if you look at the SItuation of 1984 and Sant Jarnail Singh Ji, i came to the conclusion that, SantJi had started the agitation in a n extremely peacful and loving manner in the form of Parchaar and awakenign of the SIkhs within Punjab and across India. From the time of Bhai Fauja Singh Ji's Shaheedi the Sikhs kept a very peaceful agitation alive, with protests etc. Now i guess the question is what do you think Sangat Jee, are there similarities? Looking forward to responses WJKK WJKF
  15. Looking for the Sant Jarnail Singh dharna "dharam sir ditta baaz nahi rehna". Anyone know where I can find it?
  16. MUST WATCH: **1984 TRUTH EXPOSED :: SANT BHINDRANWALE** FEARLESS PARCHAR IN 2013 PUNJAB BY SANT DHADRIANWALE ONLY A VERY FEW CAN OPENLY DO SUCH FEARLESS PARCHAR WITHIN THE CURRENT TIMES OF 2013 PUNJAB. THIS MUST BE WATCHED.
  17. Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh One time Sant Sundar Singh Ji Bhindranwale was taken to hospital with an illness. The Chief Khalsa Divan honorary secretary Dr. Diwan Singh Ji came to the hospital to have darshan of Mahapursh. Dr. Diwan Singh Ji had done darshan of many Brahmgyanis including Sant Baba Shaam Singh JI - the kirtani of Sachkhand Sri Darbar Sahib Ji. After exchanging Fateh with Santji he asked/did a benti to Santji to give a Bachan. Santji simply said I'm ill what Bachan can I possibly give? Santji then asked Dr. Diwan Singh Ji to examine him and begin some treatment. Dr. Diwan Singh Ji then proceeded to narrate an experience from his own life. He said to Santji that every time I switch on my car - from the engine itself I hear 'waheguru waheguru waheguru waheguru waheguru Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji waheguru waheguru waheguru waheguru waheguru'. Santji said you have a lot of bakhseesh and kirpa bestowed on you by Guru Sahib. Dr. Diwan Singh Ji then said I've told you about this kirpa now please give a Bachan. Santji smiled and said I will give Bachan but before that you are a doctor, please examine me and treat me. Hearing this Dr. Diwan Singh Ji took out his stethoscope and begin to examine Santji. Everywhere the stethoscope was placed only one thing was heard - Waheguru waheguru waheguru waheguru waheguru. This is the Nishani of a Gursikh. Very loose translation from katha by Giani Ram Singh. How my ears and my stethoscope long to meet a patient like Santji. Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh

Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh Sant Gyani Baba Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale whose whole life is dedicated to attaching people to the charankamal of Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. Waheguruji ਦਿੱਲੀ 7 ਜਨਵਰੀ 1986 ਨੂੰ ਅਚਾਨਕ ਮੈਨੂੰ ਆਪਣੇ ਇਕ ਨਿੱਜੀ ਦੋਸਤ ਰਾਮ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦ ਵਰਮਾ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਉਸ ਦੇ ਇਕ ਰਿਸ਼ਤੇਦਾਰ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ, ਜੋ ਕੋਕਾ ਕੋਲਾ ਬਣਾਉਣ ਵਾਲੀ ਫ਼ੈਕਟਰੀ ਦਾ ਮਾਲਕ ਸੀ, ਦੇ ਘਰ ਜਾਣ ਦਾ ਮੌਕਾ ਮਿਲਿਆ। ਮੇਰੇ ਦੋਸਤ ਰਾਮ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦ ਨੇ ਦੱਸਿਆ ਕਿ ਮੇਰੇ ਫੁੱਫੜ ਜੀ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੇ ਬਹੁਤ ਵਿਰੋਧੀ ਰਹੇ। ਜਦੋਂ ਅਸੀਂ ਉਸ ਦੇ ਦਰਵਾਜ਼ੇ ਕੋਲ ਪਹੁੰਚੇ, ਉਸ ਦੇ ਚਾਰ ਮੰਜ਼ਲ ਆਲੀਸ਼ਾਨ ਬੰਗਲੇ ਅੱਗੇ 3 ਸਕਿਉਰਿਟੀ ਗਾਰਡ ਖੜੇ ਸਨ। ਜਦੋਂ ਅਸੀਂ ਬੰਗਲੇ ਦੇ ਡਰਾਇੰਗ ਰੂਮ ਵਿੱਚ ਬੈਠੇ ਤਾਂ ਸਾਹਮਣੇ 8 ਫੁੱਟ ਦੀ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੀ ਤਸਵੀਰ ਦੇਖ ਕੇ ਮੇਰੇ ਪੈਰਾਂ ਹੇਠੋਂ ਜ਼ਮੀਨ ਨਿਕਲ ਗਈ। ਜਦੋਂ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਅਸੀਂ ਤਸਵੀਰ ਬਾਰੇ ਗੱਲ ਕੀਤੀ ਤਾਂ ਉਹ ਉਚੀ-ਉਚੀ ਰੋਣ ਲੱਗ ਪਿਆ। ਮੇਰੇ ਸਾਹਮਣੇ 78 ਸਾਲ ਦੇ ਬਜ਼ੁਰਗ ਦੇ ਰੋਣੇ ਨੇ ਹੋਰ ਵੀ ਹੈਰਾਨੀ ਪਾ ਦਿੱਤੀ, ਉਸ ਨੇ ਜੋ ਕਹਾਣੀ ਸੁਣਾਈ, ਉਹ ਇਸ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਹੈ ਸ਼ਹਿਰ ਲੁਧਿਆਣੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਖੇਤੀ ਨਾਲ ਸਬੰਧਤ ਲੋਹੇ ਦਾ ਸਮਾਨ ਬਣਾਉਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਵਿਨੋਦ ਕੁਮਾਰ ਨਾਂ ਦੇ ਬੰਦੇ ਦਾ ਕਾਰੋਬਾਰ ਸੀ। ਉਸ ਦੀ ਹਵੇਲੀ ਨਾਲ ਪਿੰਡ-ਪਿੰਡ ਕੱਪੜੇ ਵੇਚਣ ਵਾਲਾ ਇਕ ਗਰੀਬ ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਰਹਿੰਦਾ ਸੀ, ਜੋ ਨਿੱਕਾ ਹੁੰਦਾ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਟਕਸਾਲ ਵਿੱਚ ਰਹਿੰਦਾ ਸੀ। ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲਾ ਦੂਰ-ਦੁਰਾਡੇ ਜਾਣ ਵੇਲੇ 2-2 ਦਿਨ ਇਸ ਕੋਲ ਰਹਿ ਕੇ ਰੱਬ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ ਜਪਦਾ। ਵਿਨੋਦ ਕੁਮਾਰ ਦੀ ਘਰ ਵਾਲੀ ਜਦੋਂ ਰਾਤ ਨੂੰ ਇਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦ੍ਵੋਨਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਉਚੀ-ਉਚੀ ਆਵਾਜ਼ ਵਿੱਚ ਰੱਬ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ ਜਪਦੇ ਸੁਣਾਈ ਤਾਂ ਬੜਾ ਖੁਸ਼ ਹੁੰਦੀ ਅਤੇ ਇਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦੋਹਾਂ ਤੇ ਬੜੀ ਸ਼ਰਧਾ ਰੱਖਦੀ, ਜਦੋਂ ਕਿ ਵਿਨੋਦ ਕੁਮਾਰ ਦਾ ਕੰਮ ਵਿੱਚ ਜ਼ਿਆਜਾ ਰੁੱਝਿਆ ਹੋਣ ਕਰਕੇ ਧਾਰਮਿਕ ਪਾਸੇ ਕੋਈ ਬਹੁਤਾ ਖਿਆਲ ਨਹੀਂ ਸੀ। ਵਿਨੋਦ ਕੁਮਾਰ ਦੀ ਘਰ ਵਾਲੀ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਉਮਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਕਾਫ਼ੀ ਵੱਡੀ ਹੋਣ ਕਰਕੇ ਇਹ ਦੋਵੇਂ ਉਸ ਨੂੰ ਮਾਤਾ ਜੀ ਕਹਿੰਦੇ ਸਨ। ਉਸ ਸਮੇਂ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲਾ ਅਤਿ ਦੀ ਗਰੀਬੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਸੀ, ਸਾਰੇ ਭੈਣ-ਭਰਾ ਮੂੰਹ ਮੋੜ ਗਏ ਅਤੇ ਉਸ ਨੂੰ ਧਾਰਮਿਕ ਸਥਾਨਾਂ ਤੇ ਪੈਦਲ ਹੀ ਜਾਣਾ ਪੈਂਦਾ ਸੀ। ਇਕ ਦਿਨ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਦੋਸਤ ਨੂੰ ਇਕ ਅਜਿਹਾ ਸਾਈਕਲ ਲੈਣ ਬਾਰੇ ਪੁੱਛਿਆ ਜਿਸ ਦਾ ਮੁੱਲ ਉਸ ਸਮੇਂ 16 ਰੁਪਏ ਸੀ। ਪਰ ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਨੇ ਆਪਣੀ ਮਾੜੀ ਮਾਲੀ ਹਾਲਤ ਹੋਣ ਕਰਕੇ 16 ਰੁਪਏ ਤੋਂ ਅਥਮਰੱਥਤਾ ਪ੍ਰਗਟਾਈ। ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਦੀ ਮਾਂ ਬੋਲ ਬੈਠੀ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਨੇ ਇਹ ਗੱਲ ਸੁਣ ਲਈ। ਉਹ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦਾ ਸਾਧ-ਬਾਣਾ ਅਤੇ ਰੱਬ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ ਜਪਦਾ ਰਹਿਣ ਕਰਕਾ ਬਹੁਤ ਸ਼ਰਧਾ ਰੱਖਦੀ ਸੀ। ਉਹ ਨੇ ਬਿਨਾਂ ਦੇਰੀ ਕੀਤੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਘਰੋਂ 16 ਰੁਪਏ ਲਿਆ ਕੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੇ ਅੱਗੇ ਰੱਖ ਦਿੱਤੇ ਤਾਂ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਬੜੀ ਹਲੀਮੀ ਨਾਲ ਨਾਂਹ ਕਰ ਦਿੱਤੀ। ਪਰ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਅਤੇ ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਦੀ ਮਾਤਾ ਨੇ ਜ਼ੋਰ ਦੇ ਕੇ ਉਸ ਦੀ ਜੇਬ ਵਿੱਚ ਪੈਸੇ ਪਾ ਦਿੱਤੇ। ਇਹ ਘਟਨਾ 1964 ਦੀ ਹੈ, ਸਮਾਂ ਬਦਲ ਗਿਆ। ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ 1967 ਵਿੱਚ ਲੁਧਿਆਣਾ ਸ਼ਹਿਰ ਛੱਡ ਕੇ ਕਲਕੱਤੇ ਚਲਾ ਗਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦਾ ਉਸ ਜਗ੍ਹਾ ਆਉਣਾ-ਜਾਣਾ ਖ਼ਤਮ ਹੋ ਗਿਆ। ਉਧਰ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਦੀ ਲੜਕੀ ਮਈਆਂ ਦਿੱਲੀ ਦੇ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਤੇ ਪੋਤੇ ਅਸ਼ਵਨੀ ਕੁਮਾਰ ਨਾਲ ਵਿਆਹੀ ਗਈ। ਉਸ ਦੇ ਘਰ ਪੁੱਤਰ ਨੇ ਜਨਮ ਲਿਆ। ਉਸ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ ਸੰਦੀਪ ਰੱਖਿਆ ਗਿਆ। ਜਦੋਂ ਸੰਦੀਪ 11 ਸਾਲ ਦੀ ਉਮਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਸੀ ਤਾਂ ਉਸ ਨੂੰ ਦਿਮਾਗ ਦਾ ਕੈਂਸਰ (ਬਰੇਨ ਟਿਊਮਨ) ਹੋ ਗਿਆ, ਜਿਸ ਦਾ ਪਹਿਲਾ ਬੰਬਈ ਅਤੇ ਫਿਰ ਇੰਗਲੈਂਡ ਤੋਂ ਇਲਾਜ ਕਰਵਾਇਆ ਗਿਆ। 2 ਸਾਲ ਇਲਾਜ ਚੱਲਿਆ, ਅਖ਼ੀਰ ਡਾਕਟਰਾਂ ਨੇ ਕਹਿ ਦਿੱਤਾ ਕਿ ਇਹ ਬੱਚਾ ਵੱਧ ਤੋਂ ਵੱਧ ਸਿਰਫ਼ 3 ਸਾਲ ਜਿਊਂਦਾ ਰਹੇਗਾ, ਸ਼ਾਇਦ ਇਸ ਬੱਚੇ ਦਾ ਅੰਤ ਬਹੁਤ ਦਰਦਨਾਕ ਹੋਵੇ। ਉਸ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਘਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਬਹੁਤ ਜਗਰਾਤੇ ਅਤੇ ਬਹੁਤ ਪੁੰਨਦਾਨ ਕਰਾਏ ਗਏ, ਰਿਸ਼ੀਕੇਸ਼ ਜਾ ਕੇ ਬੜੇ ਰਿਸ਼ੀਆਂ ਤੋਂ ਅਸ਼ੀਰਵਾਦ ਲਈ। ਬੜੇ ਸੰਤਾਂ ਦੇ ਘਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਪੈਰ ਪੁਆਏ, ਬੜੀਆਂ ਸੇਵਾਵਾਂ ਕੀਤੀਆਂ। ਦੂਰ-ਦੂਰ, ਜਿਸ ਸੰਤ ਦੀ ਗੱਲ ਹੁੰਦੀ, ਜਾ ਪੈਰ ਫੜੇ। ਪਰ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੀਆਂ ਡਾਕਟਰੀ ਰਿਪੋਰਟਾਂ ਦਿਨੋ ਦਿਨ ਮਾੜੀਆਂ ਹੀ ਆਉਂਦੀਆਂ ਰਹੀਆਂ। ਅਖ਼ੀਰ ਕੈਂਸਰ 82% ਤੱਕ ਆਉਣਾ ਕਬਜ਼ਾ ਕਰ ਗਿਆ। ਜਦੋਂ ਕਦੇ ਬੀਮਾਰੀ ਨਾਲ ਕੁਰਲਾਉਂਦਾ ਤਾਂ ਮਾਂ-ਪਿਉ ਤਾਂ ਕੀ, ਘਰ ਦੀਆਂ ਕੰਧਾਂ ਵੀ ਰੋਣ ਲੱਗ ਜਾਂਦੀਆਂ। ਸਾਨੂੰ ਕਰਨਾਟਕ ਵਿੱਚ ਇਕ ਬਹੁਤ ਉਘੇ ਸੰਤ ਭੈਣੀ ਨਾਥ ਦੀ ਦੱਸ ਪਈ। ਦੱਸਿਆ ਗਿਆ ਕਿ ਜੇ ਭੈਣੀ ਨਾਥ ਖੁਸ਼ ਹੋ ਗਿਆ ਤਾਂ ਸਭੇ ਬੀਮਾਰੀਆਂ ਚੁੱਕੀਆਂ ਜਾਣਗੀਆਂ। ਪਰ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ 60 ਤੋਂ ਉਪਰ ਸੰਤਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਸਿਰਫ਼ 2 ਸਾਲ ਵਿੱਚ ਮਿਲ ਚੁੱਕਿਆ ਸੀ। ਪਰ ਕੋਈ ਅਸਰ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੋਇਆ ਸੀ। ਪਰ ਡੁੱਬਦੇ ਨੂੰ ਤਿਨਕੇ ਦਾ ਸਹਾਰਾ ਦੇ ਅਨੁਸਾਰ ਇਹ ਸਾਰਾ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਭੈਣੀ ਨਾਥ ਕੋਲ ਪਹੁੰਚ ਗਿਆ। ਉਥੇ ਹਜ਼ਾਰਾਂ ਦੀ ਭੀੜ ਹੋਣ ਕਰਕੇ ਤੀਸਰੇ ਦਿਨ ਉਸ ਨੂੰ ਮਿਲਣ ਦੀ ਵਾਰੀ ਆਈ। ਉਸ ਨੇ ਬੜੇ ਆਦਰ ਮਾਣ ਨਾਲ ਇਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦੀ ਕਹਾਣੀ ਸੁਣੀ ਅਤੇ 101 ਗਊਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਪੱਠੇ ਅਤੇ 51 ਪੰਡਿਤਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਖੀਰ ਦਾ ਪ੍ਰਸ਼ਾਦ ਖੁਆਉਣ ਅਤੇ ਗੰਗਾ ਦਾ ਇਸ਼ਨਾਨ ਕਰਨ ਦੀ ਹਦਾਇਤ ਦੇ ਦਿੱਤੀ ਅਤੇ ਪੂਰਾ ਯਕੀਨ ਦਿਵਾਇਆ ਕਿ ਬੱਚਾ 100 ਸਾਲ ਤੱਕ ਜੀਵੇਗਾ। ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਕੁਝ ਆਸਾਂ ਤੱਕ ਕੇ ਵਾਪਸ ਮੁੜਿਆ। ਸਭ ਕੁਝ ਉਸੇ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਕੀਤਾ ਗਿਆ ਪਰ ਜਦੋਂ ਡਾਕਟਰੀ ਰਿਪੋਰਟ ਆਈ ਤਾਂ ਅੱਗੇ ਨਾਲੋਂ ਵੀ ਮਾੜੀ ਸੀ। ਕੈਂਸਰ ਹੋਰ ਅੰਗਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਵੀ ਵਧ ਗਿਆ ਸੀ। ਅਖ਼ੀਰ ਸਮਾਂ ਬੀਤਿਆਂ, ਡਾਕਟਰਾਂ ਦੇ ਕਹਿਣ ਅਨੁਸਾਰ ਪੂਰੇ ਤਿੰਨ ਸਾਲਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਕੈਂਸਰ 93% ਤੇ ਪਹੁੰਚ ਘਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਬੱਚਾ ਨੀਮ-ਬੇਹੋਸੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਚਲਿਆ ਗਿਆ। ਇਹ ਗੱਲ 1983 ਦੀ ਹੈ। ਇਕ ਦਿਨ ਅਚਾਨਕ ਹੀ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੀ ਨਾਨੀ (ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ) ਨੇ ਬੱਚੇ ਨੂੰ ਅਕਾਲ ਤਖ਼ਤ ਤੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਕੋਲ ਲਿਜਾਣ ਦੀ ਜ਼ਿੱਦ ਕੀਤੀ। ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦਿਨਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੀ ਪੂਰੀ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਚੜ੍ਹ ਮੱਚੀ ਹੋਈ ਸੀ। ਜਦੋਂ ਇਹ ਗੱਲ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੇ ਦਾਦੇ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਨੇ ਸੁਣੀ ਤਾਂ ਉਹ ਅੱਗ-ਬਬੂਲਾ ਹੋ ਗਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੂੰ ਬਦਮਾਸ਼ ਕਾਤਲ ਕਹਿ ਕੇ ਗਾਲ੍ਹਾਂ ਕੱਢਣ ਲੱਗ ਪਿਆ। ਪਰ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਤੇ ਕੋਈ ਅਸਰ ਨਾ ਹੋਇਆ। ਉਸ ਦੀ ਆਪਣੀ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਪ੍ਰਤੀ ਸ਼ਰਧਾ ਸੀ। ਅਖ਼ੀਰ 3-4 ਦਿਨਾਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਦੇ ਜ਼ੋਰ ਦੇਣ ਤੇ ਸਾਰੇ ਮੰਨ ਗਏ, ਪਰ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਨੇ ਇਹ ਸ਼ਰਤ ਰੱਖ ਲਈ ਕਿ ਉਹ ਨਹੀਂ ਜਾਵੇਗਾ। ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਦੇ ਤਿੰਨੇ ਮੁੰਡੇ, ਨੂੰਹ ਅਤੇ ਸੰਦੀਪ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਨਾਨਾ-ਨਾਨੀ ਅਤੇ ਮਾਮਾ-ਮਾਮੀ ਸਾਰੇ ਜਣੇ ਅਕਾਲ ਤ੍ਰਖ਼ਤ ਤੇ ਆ ਗਏ। ਬੱਚਾ ਨੀਮ ਬੇਹੋਸ਼ ਸੀ। ਭਾਵੇਂ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਨੂੰ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੂੰ ਦੇਖੇ 26 ਸਾਲ ਹੋ ਗਏ ਸਨ, ਪਰ ਉਹ ਅਖ਼ਬਾਰਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਫ਼ੋਟੋ ਦੇਖਦੀ ਰਹਿੰਦੀ ਸੀ। ਜਦੋਂ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਨੇ ਜਾ ਕੇ ਆਪਣੀ ਪਹਿਚਾਣ ਕਰਵਾਈ ਅਤੇ ਸੰਤਾਂ ਦੇ ਦੋਸਤ ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਬਾਰੇ ਦੱਸਿਆ ਤਾਂ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਨੂੰ ਪਛਾਨਣ ਵਿੱਚ ਇਕ ਮਿੰਟ ਵੀ ਨਾ ਲਾਇਆ, ਬੜੇ ਆਦਰ-ਸਤਿਕਾਰ ਨਾਲ ਬਿਠਾਇਆ ਗਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਬਦਾਮਾਂ ਨਾਲਾ ਦੁੱਧ ਪੇਸ਼ ਕੀਤਾ ਗਿਆ। ਇਸ ਦੌਰਾਨ ਪਹਿਲਾ ਆਈ ਹੋਰ ਸੰਗਤ ਵੀ ਬੈਠੀ ਸੀ, ਹਰ ਕੋਈ ਆਪਣੇ ਦੁਖੜੇ ਸੁਣਾ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ, ਜੋ ਘਰੇਲੂ ਝਗੜੇ ਸਨ। ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦਾ ਨਿਪਟਾਰਾ ਤਾਂ ਉਹ ਤੁਰੰਤ ਹੀ ਕਰ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ ਅਤੇ ਜੋ ਬੀਮਾਰੀ ਨਾਲ ਪੀੜਤ ਸਨ, ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਰੱਬ ਦੇ ਭਾਣੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਰਹਿ ਕੇ ਨਾਮ ਜਪਣ ਨੂੰ ਕਹਿ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ। ਇਸੇ ਦੌਰਾਨ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਬੈਠੀ ਸੰਗਤ ਦੇ ਦੁੱਖ-ਸੁੱਖ ਨਿਪਟਾ ਕੇ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਦੇ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਨੂੰ ਇਕ ਪਾਸੇ ਕਰ ਲਿਆ। ਕੁਝ ਚਿਰ ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਬਾਰੇ ਗੱਲਾਂ ਕੀਤੀਆਂ ਅਤੇ ਬਾਅਦ ਵਿੱਚ ਆਉਣ ਦਾ ਕਾਰਨ ਪੁੱਛਿਆ ਤਾਂ ਨੈਨੀ ਦੇਵੀ ਉਚੀ ਉਚੀ ਰੋਣ ਲੱਗ ਪਈ। ਇਸ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੇ ਮਾਤਾ-ਪਿਤਾ ਅਤੇ ਸਾਰਾ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਰੋਣ ਲੱਗ ਪਿਆ। ਸੰਤ ਕੁਝ ਗੰਭੀਰ ਹੋ ਗਏ ਅਤੇ ਸਭ ਨੂੰ ਦਿਲਾਸਾ ਦਿੱਤਾ। ਸੰਦੀਪ ਦੇ ਚਾਚੇ ਨੇ ਸਾਰ ਵਿਥਿਆ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੇ ਅੱਗੇ ਖੋਲ੍ਹ ਸੁਣਾਈ ਅਤੇ ਦੱਸਿਆ ਕਿ ਅਸੀਂ ਸਭ ਸੰਤਾਂ-ਮਹਾਂਪੁਰਸ਼ਾਂ ਦੇ ਬਚਨ ਮੰਨੇ ਅਤੇ ਡਾਕਟਰੀ ਤੌਰ ਤੇ ਇੰਗਲੈਂਡ ਤੱਕ ਗਏ ਹਾਂ ਪਰ ਬੱਚਾ ਅਖ਼ੀਰਲੀ ਸਟੇਜ ਵਿੱਚ ਹੈ। ਸਿਰਫ਼ ਇਕ ਜਾਂ ਦੋ ਮਹੀਨੇਅਤੇ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਫਿਰ ਰੋਣ ਲੱਗ ਪਈ। ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲਾ ਕੁਝ ਚਿਰ ਚੁੱਪ ਰਿਹਾ ਅਤੇ ਬੱਚੇ ਨੂੰ, ਜੋ ਨੀਮ ਬੇਹੋਸੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਸੀ, ਨੂੰ ਚੁੱਕ ਕੇ ਗੋਦੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਬਿਠਾ ਲਿਆ। ਉਸ ਨੇ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੇ ਮੱਥੇ ਤੇ ਕੁਝ ਚਿਰ ਹੱਥ ਰੱਖਿਆ, ਫਿਰ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਸਿੰਘ ਦੇ ਨਾਂ ਦੇ ਇਕ ਸਿੰਘ ਨੂੰ ਆਵਾਜ਼ ਮਾਰੀ ਅਤੇ ਕਿਹਾ ਇਸ ਨੂੰ ਸਰੋਵਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਲੈ ਜਾਵ ਅਤੇ ਬੁੱਕਾਂ ਨਾਲ ਓਨਾ ਚਿਰ ਇਸ ਦੇ ਸਿਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਪਾਣੀ ਪਾਓ, ਜਿੰਨਾ ਚਿਰ ਤੁਸੀਂ ਸੁਖਮਨੀ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਦਾ ਪਾਠ ਪੂਰਾ ਨਹੀਂ ਕਰ ਲੈਂਦੇ। ਜਦੋਂ ਪਾਠ ਦਾ ਭੋਗ ਪਵੇ, ਫੇਰ ਦਰਬਾਰ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਜਾ ਕੇ ਅਰਦਾਸ ਕਰ ਅਤੇ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਨੂੰ ਹਦਾਇਤ ਕੀਤੀ ਕਿ ਇਸ ਦੇ ਨਮਿੱਤ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤਸਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਹੀ ਇਕ ਸਿੰਘ ਦੇ ਘਰ ਕਰਨਾ। ਮਲ-ਮੂਤਰ ਜਾਣ ਸਮੇਂ ਪਾਠੀ ਸਿੰਘ ਏਨਾ ਉਚੀ ਪਾਠ ਕਰਨ ਕਿ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੇ ਕੰਨੀਂ ਸੁਣਿਆ ਜਾਵੇ ਅਤੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਸਿੰਘ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਸਿੰਘ ਨੂੰ ਕਿਹਾ ਕਿ ਪਾਠੀ ਉਹ ਲਵੋ, ਜਿਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੇ ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ 25-25 ਵਾਲ ਸੰਥਿਆ ਕੀਤੀ ਹੋਵੇ। ਸਾਰਾ ਕੁਝ ਇਸੇ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਕੀਤਾ ਗਿਆ। ਤੀਜੇ ਦਿਨ ਭੋਗ ਪੈ ਗਿਆ। ਭੋਗ ਪੈਣ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਸਾਰਾ ਟੱਬਰ ਫੇਰ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਕੋਲ ਆਇਆ ਅਤੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਨੂੰ ਕਿਹਾ ਕਿ ਅੱਜ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਇਸ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੇ ਸਿਰ ਦੇ ਵਾਲ ਨਹੀਂ ਕੱਟਣੇ। ਅਗਰ ਗੁਰੂ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਜੀ ਨੇ ਚਾਹਿਆ ਤਾਂ ਇਸ ਦੀ ਬੀਮਾਰੀ ਦੂਰ ਕਰ ਦੇਣਗੇ। ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਤੋਂ ਬਗੈਰ ਬਾਕੀ ਸਾਰਾ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਮਾੜਾ-ਮੋਟਾ ਮਨ ਵਿੱਚ ਵਿਸ਼ਵਾਸ ਕਰਕੇ ਵਾਪਸ ਮੁੜਿਆ ਪਰ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੀ ਨਾਨੀ ਨੈਨਾ ਦੇਵੀ ਪੂਰੀ ਖੁਸ਼ ਸੀ, ਜਦੋਂ ਇਸ ਟੱਬਰ ਦੀਆਂ ਦੋਨੇ ਕਾਰਾਂ ਪਾਣੀਪਤ ਲੰਘੀਆਂ ਤਾਂ ਬੱਚਾ ਇਕ ਦਿਨ ਉਠ ਖਲੋਤਾ ਤੇ ਜਿਹੜਾ ਬੱਚੇ ਪਿਛਲੇ 7 ਮਹੀਨਿਆਂ ਤੋਂ ਗੁਲੂਕੋਜ਼ ਤੇ ਜਿਉਂਦਾ ਰਹਿ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ, ਉਸ ਨੇ ਖਾਣ ਨੂੰ ਮੰਗਿਆ। ਸਾਰੇ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਖੁਸ਼ੀ ਦੀ ਲਹਿਰ ਦੌੜ ਗਈ। ਬੱਸ ਫੇਰ ਕੀ, ਬੱਚੇ ਦੀਆਂ ਹਰਕਤਾਂ ਦਿਨੋ-ਦਿਨ ਬਦਲਦੀਆਂ ਗਈਆਂ ਅਤੇ 23 ਦਿਨੋਂ ਪਿਛੋਂ ਜਦੋਂ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੀ ਰਿਪੋਰਟ ਆਉਣੀ ਸੀ ਤਾਂ ਡਾਕਟਰਾਂ ਦੀ ਟੀਮ ਮੂੰਹ ਵਿੱਚ ਉਂਗਲਾਂ ਦੇ ਰਹੀ ਸੀ, ਜਦੋਂ ਸਾਰੀ ਕਹਾਣੀ ਦੱਸੀ ਗਈ, ਬੱਸ ਫੇਰ ਤਾਂ ਸਾਰੇ ਇਕ ਦੂਜੇ ਵੱਲ ਤੱਕ ਰਹੇ ਸਨ। ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਕਹਿ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ ਕਿ ਮੈਂ ਹੁਣ ਪਛਤਾ ਰਿਹਾ ਹਾਂ ਕਿ ਉਸ ਸਮੇਂ ਇਹੋ ਜਿਹੇ ਮਹਾਂਪੁਰਸ਼ਾਂ ਦੇ ਮੈਂ ਕਿਉਂ ਨਾ ਦਰਸ਼ਨ ਕਰ ਸਕਿਆ। ਜਿਹੜਾ ਸਾਡਾ ਬੱਚਾ ਕਈ ਸੈਂਕੜੇ ਸੰਤਾਂ, ਦਾਨ-ਪੁੰਨ ਕਰਨ ਦੇ ਬਾਵਜੂਦ, ਭੈਣੀ ਨਾਥ ਦੀ ਸ਼ਰਨ ਗਏ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਅਤੇ ਇੰਗਲੈਂਡ ਤੱਕ ਡਾਕਟਰੀ ਇਲਾਜ ਹੋਣ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਮੌਤ ਦੇ ਮੂੰਹ ਦੇ ਵੱਲ ਵਧ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ, ਅੱਜ ਸਾਡਾ ਉਹੀ ਬੱਚਾ ਮੈਡੀਕਲ ਦੀ ਪੜ੍ਹਾਈ ਵਿੱਚ ਫਸਟ ਆ ਰਿਹਾ ਹੈ

  20. The Punjab Government is keen to remove the inscription listing separatist leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale’s name from the “Yadgar” memorial erected in memory of those killed during Operation Bluestar despite pressure from the Damdami Taksal that led a march to the Akal Takht today to thwart any such move. Sources said the inscription at the entrance of the memorial and the plaques on either side of the stairs leading to it mentioned about separatist leaders. This was in direct contravention of the assurance made by Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal in the state Assembly that the memorial would be a simple gurdwara only. Sources said while the developments embarrassed the Chief Minister, these had also made him lose face vis a vis his alliance partner-the BJP-which is extremely unhappy at the turn of recent events. Observers feel the Chief Minister was essentially a moderate and hence could not allow Bhindranwale’s name to be projected in the manner done by the Damdami Taksal. The SAD has reportedly taken up the issue with Damdami Taksal and members of the Sant Samaj spearheading the current campaign to ensure that the inscriptions are not removed. As per the SAD stand, an understanding was arrived at with some radical elements to pave the way for the establishment of memorial. Despite it being a 20-year-old demand, memorial could not take shape as there was no unanimity on its shape. A section of radical elements, including the Sant Samaj, approached both the CM and SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal after coming to an “understanding” that all other parties were misleading the radical leaders and put their “trust” in the Badals on the issue. This helped the SAD to get support of the Sant Samaj for the 2012 Assembly elections. The Sant Samaj also earned legitimacy by getting a long-pending demand “fulfilled”. SAD sources claim it was decided that a memorial to all those who were martyred during Operation Bluestar should come up on the Darbar Sahib complex. This is disputed by the Damdami Taksal which claimed the purpose of the memorial all along had been to commemorate the “martyrs”, including Bhindranwale. The SAD claims the Taksal has “deviated” from this understanding and that no personality-centric memorial should be allowed on the Darbar Sahib complex. The SAD and the government is, however, wary of the Damdami Taksal because the latter is not willing to let go of the “success” achieved by it on the issue. Sources said the Damdami Taksal and its head Harnam Singh Dhumma felt it had “achieved” something which no other radical leader had till now. It is this which is coming in the way of an amicable “settlement” of the issue. THE ROW The inscription at the entrance of the Yadgar memorial and the plaques on either side of the stairs leading to it mention about separatist leaders SAD sources say the understanding was to raise a memorial to all those martyred during Operation Bluestar in the form of a simple gurdwara
  21. A few days ago, I think it was on this forum, that I came across an article regarding Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. It answered some question relating around him and the police. It mentioned something about him presenting himself to the police along with 50 others before going into Nanak Niwas. I have been looking for it ever since but cannot find it. Can anyone please help me look for it?
  22. Hopefully all other jathebandis will follow.. ------------- Head of Damdami Taksaal, Singh Sahib Giani Ram Singh Khalsa Bhindranwale, visits Singh Sabha Gurdwara Derby to meet AKJ UK Executive Committee members to discuss ways forward to work together in uniting the Panth and tackling the following issues: 1) Gurudom 2) Rising Patit-punna (Apostasy) 3) Crime, Drugs and Social Evils in Panjab 4) Hatred and controversy being spread and Maryada differences being manipulated in the youth on Facebook, or media 5) Respecting Sri Akal Takht Sahib Maryada and not opposing it Baba Ram Singh Ji discussed in the meeting that the historically Damdami Taksaal and AKJ have had a lot pyaar, and the differences on issues like Raagmala and Mool Mantar has never been an issue and nor debated by the early Singhs. Baba Ji was concerned at how youngsters could use these issues to create divide and hate. Baba Ji said AKJ used to come to Mehta to do Keertan and Taksaal Singhs attended Rainsbaayees.
  23. How do we bust apart the myth that Indra set up Sant Ji? This Indian Vikram Chopra is spreading the crap on facebook that there is even newspaper proof of this from the time.
