Importance of turban in life of Sikh

May 13, 2018

Recently a judge of Supreme court of India asked a litigant in his ignorance on importance of turban in life of a Sikh. It wasn’t only a question but the judge said using derogatory words like”Please don’t tell us what gurus have said but tell us if Sikhs practice to wear the turban or could they do so without it”?

It was most objectionable to Sikh community as the courts are made for humans but humans aren’t made by Courts. He must have known the importance of the words of the Prophet in the life of devotees before the judge himself challanges ‘THE DIVINE LAW’.
orders of Sikh Gurus in this relevance before we

Now let us see the importance of turban in life of a Sikh and the words of Sikh Gurus in this relevance before we give the historical references where Sikhs preferred to sacrifice their life but refused to wear helmets:

The Turban is an article of faith that has been made mandatory by the founders of Sikhism, having immense spiritual as well as temporal significance, increasing a commitment to Sikhism, making a Sikh a more disciplined and virtuous person. It is a symbol of courage, self-respect, dedication, piety and sovereignty. It is intertwined with Sikh identity.

The Dastar (Turban) of the Sikhs

Historical Background

Turban is and has been an inseparable part of a Sikh‘s life. Since Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism, all Sikhs have been wearing turbans. Refer to Dr. Trilochan Singh‘s “Biography of Guru Nanak Dev.” All Sikh Gurus wore turbans. The Sikh Rehat Maryada (Sikh Code of Conduct) specifically says that all Sikhs must wear a turban. According to the Rehatnama of Bhai Chaupa Singh, who was a contemporary of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the five Kakars of Sikhism were: Kachh (a special underwear), Karha (a steel bracelet), Kirpan (small sword), Kangha (comb) and Keski (a small turban).

Guru Gobind Singh says,

“Kangha dono vakt kar, paag chune kar bandhai.”

ARTH ===== “Comb your hair twice a day and tie your turban carefully, turn by turn.”

Several ancient Sikh documents refer to the order of Guru Gobind Singh about wearing five Ks. Bhai Rattan Singh Bhangu is one of the most famous ancient Sikh historians. He is the author of “Sri Gur Panth Parkash” which he wrote almost two centuries ago. He writes,

“Doi vele utth bandhyo dastare, pahar aatth rakhyo shastar sambhare |

Kesan ki kijo pritpal, nah(i) ustran se katyo vaal

ARTH ===== “Tie your turban twice a day and carefully wear weapons 24

hours a day.

Take good care of your hair. Do not cut your hair.”

(“Sri Gur Granth Parkash” by Bhai Rattan Singh Bhangu, page 78)

The following information describes the importance of turban !

Holiness and Spirituality

Turban is a symbol of spirituality and holiness in Sikhism. When Guru Ram Dass Ji left for heavenly abode, his elder son Pirthi Chand wore a turban, which is usually worn by an elder son when his father passes away. (In the same manner) Guru Arjan Dev was honored with the turban of Guruship.

Marne di pag Pirthiye badhi. Guriyaee pag Arjan Ladhi.

(“Partakh Hari,” Jiwni Guru Arjan Dev Ji, by Principal Satbir Singh)

Guru Angad Dev honored Guru Amardas ji with a turban (Siropa) when he was made the Guru.

Baptism ceremony is one of the most important ceremonies in a Sikhs‘ life. That ceremony cannot be completed without wearing a turban.

The most revered Sikh symbol is hair. The turban is required of every Sikh in order to cover his/her hair. This is the primary reason the comb (kangha) is one of the five requirements in the Sikh way of life.

Guru Angad Dev ji honored Guru Amardas ji with a turban (Siropa) when he was made the Guru. Similarly, the Turban (Dastaar) has remained the key aspect in a Sikh‘s honor. Those who have selflessly served the community are honored with Turbans.

Baptism ceremony is one of the most important ceremonies in a Sikhs‘ life. That ceremony cannot be completed without wearing a turban. Indeed, a short-turban (called a keski) is one of the five requirements of baptized Sikhs. The most revered Sikh symbol is hair. The turban is required of every Sikh in order to cover his/her hair. This is also the primary reason the comb (kangha) is another one of the five requirements in the Sikh way of life.

All the Sikh Gurus wore turban. Throughout our short history, all Sikhs have been required to do so. The Turban has indeed become synonymous with Sikhism. Yet, other religions such as Hinduism, Islam and even Christianity have similar tenets as evidenced by the following:

Once they enter the gates of the inner Court, they are to wear linen vestments, They shall wear linen turbans, and linen drawers on their loins.

(Old Testament: Ezekiel 44:18-19)

Turban as a Robe of Honor

The highest honor that a Sikh religious organization can bestow upon any individual is a Siropa. It is a blessing of the Guru which is bestowed upon a person who has devoted a major portion of his/her life for the welfare of the Sikh or the humanity in general. Sometimes a Siropa is also bestowed upon the families of Sikhs martyrs.

Turban in Social Life

Muslim men and women in many countries still wear turban. It is said that the Egyptians removed their turban during mourning.

Even in Punjab removing a turban from a person’s head was considered a sign of mourning . Bhai Gurdas, a Sikh savant, who was contemporary of the several Sikh Gurus writes in his Vars:

Tthande khuhu naike pag visar(i) aya sir(i) nangai | Ghar vich

ranna(n) kamlia(n) dhussi liti dekh(i) kudhange |

(Vara(n) Bhai Gurdas, Var 32, pauri 19)

ARTH =====A person, after taking a bath at the well during winter time, forgot his turban at the well and came home bareheaded. When the women saw him at home without a turban, they thought someone had died and they started to cry.

There are many Punjabi idioms and proverbs that describe how important is a turban in one’s life.

Pag Vatauni (Exchange of Turban)

People in Punjab have been and still do exchange turbans with closest friends. Once they exchange turbans they become friends for life and forge a permanent relationship. They take a solemn pledge to share their joys and sorrows under all circumstances. Exchanging turban is a glue that can bind two individuals or families together for generations.

Turban as a Symbol of Responsibility

People who have lived in India would know the turban tying ceremony known as Rasam Pagri (Turban Tying Ceremony). This ceremony takes place once a man passed away and his oldest son takes over the family responsibilities by tying turban in front of a large gathering. It signifies that now he has shouldered the responsibility of his father and he is the head of the family.

Turban and Sikh Military Life

Turban is a symbol of honor and self-respect. The Sikh Army fought their last major battle against the British in 1845. All the Sikh soldiers and generals were wearing turbans at that time. Shah Muhammad, a great Punjabi poet and historian, who witnessed that war, writes:

Pishe baitth sardara(n) Gurmatta kita, Koi akal da karo ilaj yaro. Sherh burshia(n) di sade pesh ayee, Pag dahrhia(n) di rakho laaj yaro.

The Sikh chiefs took a unanimous and firm religious decision (Gurmatta), that they should have sense enough to judge the tenor of Maharani Jinda(n) Kaur and the crafty Britishers. They said that they were facing a very shrewd enemy and it was high time for them to save their honor because they were wearing turbans and beards (both symbols of self-respect).

The Sikh soldiers refused to wear helmets during World War I and World War II. They fought with turbans on their heads. A Sikh (Khalsa) is supposed to be fearless. Wearing a helmet is admitting fear of death. Many Sikhs received Victoria Cross which is one of the most prestigious gallantry awards in the British army.

Many Sikhs refused to remove turban even in jails. Bhai Randhir Singh, a widely respected Sikh preacher, scholar and a freedom fighter had to undergo a fast to win his right to wear turban in the prison.

High Moral Values

Sikh history is full of facts that men and women of other faiths such as Hindus and Muslims felt safe when there was a Sikh around them. They felt secure from invaders and other people when Khalsa was around. The woman or the oppressed would feel safe and sound under the protection of “khalsa”. It was a common saying in Punjab:

“Aye nihang, booha khol de nishang”

Translation: The Nihangs (Sikhs) are at the door. Dear woman! go ahead open the door without any fear whatsoever.

In the ancient times, the Sikhs men had to fight tough battles with the rulers. They moved from village to village at night. Sometimes they had to hide. Women folks had a very high degree of trust in the Nihangs (Sikhs) who can be clearly identified with a turban and beard. Women knew that the Nihangs (Sikhs) wore high moral character and never mistreated or molested women. So they fed them and helped them in whatever way they could.

Turban a Symbol of Missionary Zeal and Courage

There are many references in the Sikh history that describe how Guru Gobind Singh personally tied beautiful dumalas (turbans) on the heads of both his elder sons Baba Ajit Singh and Baba Jujhar Singh and how he personally gave them arms, decorated them like bridegrooms, and sent them to the battlefield at Chamkaur Sahib where they both received martyrdom. When the Sikhs go to an agitation (morcha), they usually wear a saffron color turban which is a symbol of sacrifice and martyrdom.

Beauty

“khoob teri pagri, meethae tere bol”

In the ancient Egyptian civilization turban was an ornamental head dress. They called it pjr from which is perhaps derived the word “pugree” commonly used in India and other Asian countries.

Kingly Turban

Sign of Sardari.

It was meant for only kings. Minorities were not allowed to wear turban and kirpan.

“och dumalra”

Most Respectful

Bare head is not considered appropriate as per gurbani:

“ud ud ravaa jhaate paaye, vekhe log hasae ghar jaaye”

Identity

It provides Sikhs a unique identity. You will see only Sikhs wearing turban in western countries.

If a Sikhs likes to become one with his/her Guru, he/she must look like a Guru (wear a turban). Guru Gobind Singh has said,

“Khalsa mero roop hai khaas. Khalse me hau karo niwas.”

Translation:

Khalsa (Sikh) is a true picture of mine. I live in a Khalsa.

I AM PROUD OF MY TURBAN.

The British chronicles are filled with the heroic acts of the Sikhs; they acknowledge that the two Anglo-Sikh wars were the toughest in the British conquest of India. An extract from the Leaves from the Journal of a Subaltern on page 155, reads:

“The Sikhs, fought like devils … fierce and untamed even in their dying struggle … Such a mass of men I have never set an eye on and as plucky as lions: they ran right on the bayonets and struck the assailants when they were transfixed.”

The Sikhs fought two mighty wars against the British but then at the turn of the century, they contributed 25% of the army from the sub-continent that fought for the Allied forces during the two World Wars. This contribution by the Sikhs, a mere 2% of India’s population, is also well recognized in the British texts of World War I & II.

General Sir Frank Messervy, in the Foreword by Colonel F.T. Birdwood, in the text, “The Sikh Regiments in the Second World War,” says:

“In the last two world wars, 83,005 turban wearing Sikh soldiers were killed and 109,045 were wounded for the freedom of the World, with no other protection but the turban, the symbol of their faith.”

All of them wore turbans without exception, refusing to wear steel helmets, despite the protection these offered. Nothing could make them wear helmets. When ordered to do so, the Sikhs disobeyed, which often meant “collective insubordination – mutiny”, with serious consequences. The intensity of war also could not lure them to wear helmets.

During World War 1 in 1915, 14th Sikh was involved in intensehand-to-hand fighting at Gallipoli in Turkey. The battalion lost 371 officers and soldiers. The Sikhs refused to give up even an inch of ground. The enemy trenches were found blocked with the bodies of turbaned Sikhs, who died while fighting at close quarters.

Yet another saga of Sikh valour was the battle fought while defending Saragarhi in Afghanistan on September 12, 1897, by 21 Sikh soldiers of the 4th battalion (then 36th Sikh) of the Sikh Regiment. The Sikhs who died bravely with the spirit of “last man last round,” wore turbans throughout fighting against almost 10,000 Afghan tribals. It is one of the eight greatest stories of “collective bravery” acknowledged and published by UNESCO. All the 21 Sikhs were posthumously decorated for outstanding bravery in the face of enemy with the highest award then given to Sikhs and Indians – The Indian Order of Merit, equivalent to the Victoria Cross, and present-day Paramvir Chakra.

One of the important cases of refusing to wear helmets, or even to carry these, was related to Sikhs of the 25th MT Coy of RIASC (present day ASC – Army Supply Corps), forming part of the 4th Indian Division. This unit moved from Meerut to Egypt as soon as the war started. After their arrival in Egypt, troops, including Sikhs, were issued steel helmets, and were ordered to wear these instead of turbans, as they offered better protection against head injuries. Sikhs found a good cause in disobeying orders to wear helmets. They refused to touch helmets, and kicked them in the presence of the British officers. Hindus and Muslims did not join the Sikhs in this revolt.

Major Shirton, the Commanding Officer of the company, was determined to teach the Sikhs a lesson, and make them wear helmets instead of turbans; it became a prestige issue for him. He tried all methods to  convince the Sikhs to wear helmets. When he failed, he threatened  them with dire consequences by reading the relevant orders on disobeying a lawful command, especially during war; the punishment could be death. All officers in the chain of command addressed Sikhs, including the Brigade and Divisional Commander, but no one could convince the Sikhs, who were willing to be shot dead, rather than wear helmets instead of turbans.

At one time, Major Shirton brought armed soldiers, who aimed at the agitating Sikhs, and threatened to shoot them if they continued activities like disobeying orders and shouting slogans against the British Government. The Sikhs challenged him to open fire. It was obviously a ploy to threaten the weak ones. The British knew that any shooting at this crucial stage of the war would spread the mutiny in many other units. Ultimately, the British tried their old trick to break the unity by segregating the soldiers on the basis of religion.

The Sikhs, Muslims and Hindus were shifted to different barracks.

Most of the Sikh soldiers were educated; they argued their case with senior officers logically to make them see reason. They argued that turbans offered as good a protection as helmets from artillery shells and aerial bombardment, if not better. No other headgear could take proper care of hair, which is sacred to a Sikh.

Sikh history is full of examples where Sikhs have sacrificed their lives for the sake of the turban. “You may take off my head, not my turban.” The Sikhs concluded their arguments with a tone of finality.

“For Sikhs, the turban was made mandatory by Guru Gobind Singh, who singularly excluded wearing of any other headgear except the turban.”

The summary court marshal tried 58 Sikhs in December, 1939, at Egypt. Even at this stage, before promulgating the sentence, it was announced that all those who go back to their work will be forgiven  for their mistake, will not be punished, and no harm will be done to their careers. No Sikh was willing to stop the turban agitation, and stood steadfast. “No helmets, death acceptable.”

Beside the RIASC mutiny, there were many such rebellions over the controversy of turban vs. helmets. The pattern followed by the mutineers as well the military authorities was almost similar to the RIASC mutiny. The 31st Battalion of the Punjab Regiment moved from Jhansi for operations in Egypt. After two months of training in desert warfare, the battalion was ready for operations. Subedar Ujjagar Singh of Pattu Hira Singh (Ferozepore), along with his company comprising of Doaba Sikhs, refused to wear steel helmets. However, the Sikh company did a splendid job, capturing hundreds of Italian prisoners with negligible causalities to turbaned Sikhs.

Yet in another case, Sikhs of the 12th Heavy Regiment of the Royal Artillery Hong Kong Battery, and some Sikhs of the Hong Kong Garrison refused to wear steel helmets, and were charged with mutiny. A military court marshal sentenced them to seven years’ penal servitude in 1941.

All 200 Sikh soldier prisoners at the cellular jail refused to wear helmets while rehearsing precautions against expected Japanese air raids at Andaman Islands. These mutineers were extremely defiant and were punished with lashes, flogging and deprivations. Yet, no Sikh soldier wore a helmet.

Alarmed at the number of incidents, many senior British officers, who had served with the Sikhs, started to educate British young officers on the turban issue, supporting the Sikhs for not wearing helmets. Consequently, by the middle of 1942, orders were passed not to force Sikh soldiers to wear helmets.

About my turban but were too afraid to ask.

This story  was originally published on The Mash-Up Americans.

Turbans are a source of mystery — and, all too often, terrible misunderstanding — to those who don’t wear them.

What do they mean? Why do you wear them? Do you have to do everything in a turban? EnterRupinder Singh, founder of American Turban, social justice fellow at the Sikh Coalition, and owner of more than 20 turbans. If you’ve ever wanted to know how long it takes to tie a turban, he’s got you covered. (Pro tip: The word Sikh means “student” and rhymes with “Sith,” not “seek.” Learning every day.)

 

A typical conversation about my turban goes something like this:

The TSA, as I go through security at the airport: “I need to inspect your, uh, headgear. I mean, your headwear. You know, that wrap on your head.”

Me: “You mean … my turban?”

“Turban” is not a dirty word. And hopefully mine, to the TSA agent awkwardly sniffing it, smells springtime fresh.

As a follower of the Sikh faith, I am, by design, recognized by my turban and my uncut hair. Sikhism is a religion of about 25 million people around the world. It’s the fifth largest world religion by population. Most of the religion’s followers are in India, but there are about 500,000 Sikhs in the United States. That’s a lot of turbans! And this simple item is the subject of a lot of unnecessary misunderstandings.

So here are answers to the 11 questions I just know you want to ask about my turban, but were too afraid to ask:

1. Why do you wear a turban?

While the turban is a common and fashionable item of clothing for many cultures, for Sikhs, it represents our faith. When the Sikh faith was developing from the 15th through 18th centuries in South Asia, the turban was worn only by the higher classes and elites of society. However, a core teaching of the Sikh faith was that all people are equal — there are no high or low among us. As such, it was mandated that all Sikhs initiated into the faith cover our heads with a turban, thereby signifying the equal status among the faith’s followers.

Because it’s considered respectful for Sikhs to keep our heads covered when in public and in our religious spaces, the turban provides that function as well. To me, it is a core piece of my identity.

 

Another identifying article of faith for Sikhs is maintaining uncut hair, both women and men. Sikhs are not to cut hair from any part of our bodies, which is why as a Sikh man I have a long beard and long hair. This is an expression of our acceptance of God’s will. My turban becomes the covering for my long hair that I keep in a bun at the top of my head. You see, we were wayahead of the hipster man-bun curve.

2. Do women wear turbans too?

Among Sikhs, the turban has traditionally been worn by men, while women cover their heads with a long scarf called a chunni or dupatta. However, many Sikh women have adopted the turban as their head covering as well.

3. But I have a friend who is a Sikh and doesn’t wear a turban. Why not?

Like any group, there is a range of practice. Many followers of the faith don’t wear turbans or keep their hair, but still legitimately follow and identify with the faith.

4. Do the colors of the turban mean anything?

There aren’t any religious meanings associated with a given turban color. A person can wear any color turban they like — and even prints! Some colors like orange, blue, and white are traditionally worn during religious celebrations or occasions. Red is traditionally worn during Sikh weddings.

One of my main decision points during my morning routine is to determine what color turban I’m going to wear and how that will coordinate with my shirt, pants, jacket, and shoes. I have more than 20 different turbans, each a different color. I’m particularly proud of the four shades of pink that are quick to brighten up a gloomy day for my coworkers. My color choice is a complicated algorithm that usually results in the wrong choice, but luckily, others either don’t notice or don’t want to hurt my feelings by pointing it out — bless their hearts.

 

5. Does it go on like a hat?

The turban isn’t a hat per se, and we don’t wear it like a hat. The Sikh turban is a long piece of cotton, typically up to six yards long and one to two yards wide. Your mileage may vary. Mine sure does.

I tend to wear shorter, narrower lengths of fabric, which I re-tie every day. To put it on, I fold the cloth several times (a process called making the pooni) into a single layer that I then wrap concentrically around my head in four layers (or a larh), but more often Sikhs wrap turbans around five or more times. It takes me a precious five or so minutes to tie my turban — precious because I usually run late to wherever I’m going.

You can watch a similar process (at your own risk) here.

6. How many kinds of turbans are there?

There are several different general styles of turbans that people wear, and within each style, there’s a lot of leeway according to their person’s preferences. A dumalla is a larger, rounder turban. There is a smaller round turban tied by some Sikh men. Sikh women who tie turbans tend to wear round ones as well. A parna is a smaller round turban often tied using a thicker printed/checkered cloth.

I tend to tie what’s most commonly referred to as the paghri or pagh, which is more angular in shape (like this one or this one). Within this style, there are regional differences: British Sikhs and African Sikhs tend to wear smaller, sharper turbans (using starched cloth) compared to North American Sikhs, whose turbans are generally softer. Indian Sikhs will often tie larger turbans. Apparently, size matters.

7. Where do you get your turbans?

I typically get my turbans from South Asian fabric shops, online turban retailers, or at Sikh festivals. The cost can vary, ranging anywhere from $3 to $10 a yard depending on where I buy from, the type of cotton blend, and any print or design. As for care, many people hand wash their turbans, though I put mine in the washing machine set on the delicate cycle and hang to dry.

8. Were you born with a turban on?

No, and my mom couldn’t be happier about that.

When I was a kid and my hair got long enough, my mother would tie on me (until I could) what is known as apatka — basically, a rectangular cloth tied around my head like a bandana that covered my bun of hair. Most boys will wear a patka until they learn how to tie the full turban, and many will instead have a handkerchief just covering their hair bun on the top of their heads. Young boys will wear a patka or a handkerchief since they’re easy to tie and can stand up to some roughhousing. Sikh men will also often wear a patka when playing sports.

 

There’s actually a ceremony in which we celebrate when a child ties their first full turban.

We call the ceremony dastaar bandi (meaning “turban tying,” coincidentally enough). It’s often characterized as a “coming of age” ceremony, but it’s not a hard and fast rule. I had my ceremony when I was maybe 4 years old — I was an overachiever back then — but I didn’t start tying my full turban until I reached high school 12 years later.

9. Do you wear it to sleep or shower?

Nope. Sikhs are supposed to keep their heads covered when in public. Accordingly, I don’t wear mine when I sleep and not in the shower, especially since it’s not waterproof.

Actually, flowing water can be fatal to a tied turban. We can be rather hydrophobic when it rains. I will say, however, that my turban does make for a convenient pillow during air travel.

10. Can I touch your turban?

Well, I’m glad you asked. I don’t know — can you?

Personally, it’s a bit of a sensitive topic. Like many Sikh children, I was bullied quite a bit in school, and my patka was the target of my harassers. Bullies would try to pull it off or just try to mess with it. This was obviously very humiliating to me as a boy, given the sacred nature of our turbans.

As an adult, I still get asked this from time to time. Because the turban is a religious article of faith, it’s held in sacred esteem by Sikhs. It’s offensive if our turbans are touched or handled without our permission while we’re wearing them. But, if the person asking is respectful and genuine, then I’ll let someone touch it so they can get a sense of it. Play your cards right and I can even tie one on you. Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean we have to get engaged or anything.

11. And, oh yeah, the heat thing.

 

You would think that tying layers of cloth on your head would be uncomfortable on a hot day, but actually, the turban is a common article of clothing in hot climates. It protects the wearer from exposure and the sun’s raysSo, while it can feel hot wearing a turban, it’s because it ishot.

“” ਹੋਇ ਸਿੱਖ ਸਿਰ ਟੋਪੀ ਧਰੈ

ਸਾਤ ਜਨਮ ਕੁਸ਼ਟੀ ਹੋਇ ਮਰੈ ।””

ਸੋ ਅਜਿਹੇ ਮਨ-ਮਤੀਏ ਨੂੰ ਸੱਤ ਜਨਮ ਕੋਹੜੀ ਹੋ ਕੇ ਬਿਤਾਉਣ ਦਾ ਸਰਾਪ ਦਿੱਤਾ ਗਿਆ ਹੈ । ਭਾਈ ਨੰਦ ਲਾਲ ਜੀ ਗੋਯਾ ਕੇਸਾਂ ਤੇ ਟੋਪੀ ਰੱਖਣ ਤੋਂ ਸਾਨੂੰ ਇਵੇਂ ਵਰਜਦੇ ਹਨ:–

” ਮੋਹਰ ਤੁਰਕ ਕੀ ਸਿਰ ਧਰੈ

ਲੋਹ ਲਗਾਵਹਿ ਚਰਨ ।

ਕਹੈ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਸਿੰਘ ਲਾਲ ਜੀ ,

ਫਿਰ ਫਿਰ ਹੋਇ ਤਿਸ ਮਰਨ ।”

ਮੈਂ ਵੀਰ ਬਲਵਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ ਚਹਿਲ ਦਾ ਦਿਲ ਤੋਂ ਸ਼ੁਕਰ ਗੁਜ਼ਾਰ ਹਾਂ ਅਤੇ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਅਗੇ ਅਰਦਾਸ ਕਰਦਾ ਹਾਂ ਕਿ ਇਹਨਾ ਨੇ ਜਿਸ ਮਨੋਰਥ ਨੂੰ ਲੈ ਕੇ ਇਹ ਕਿਤਾਬ ਲਿਖੀ ਹੈ, ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਓਹ ਮਨੋਰਥ ਸੁਫ੍ਲਾ ਕਰੇ! ਅਤੇ ਜੇ ਕੋਈ ਇਕ ਵੀ ਭੁਲਿਆ ਸਿੰਘ ਇਹ ਕਿਤਾਬ ਪੜ੍ਹ ਕੇ ਮੁੜ ਸਿੰਘ ਸਜ਼, ਪੱਗ ਬੰਨ, ਗੱਲ ਕਿਰਪਾਨ ਪਾ ਗੁਰੂ ਦਾ ਸਿੰਘ ਬਣ ਜਾਵੇ ਤੇ ਅਸੀਂ ਆਪਣੀ ਮਿਹਨਤ ਸੁਫ੍ਲਾ ਸਮਝਾਂਗੇ!

Historical evidence that 40 Sikhs and 10th Guru fought with one million Mogul army

December 22, 2017

Very strange that some ignorant people from other faiths unnecessarily criticize on valor of Sikhs, their guru-Guru Gobind Singh who gave Amrit which inherits in the veins of khalsa and inspire them to get martyred in battlefield even this day also.

Recently I saw a post on Facebook where a Muslim used derogatory words against honor of 10th Master and criticized on his role in battle of Chamkaur Sahib and questions of presence of one million Mogul army in absence of any historical evidence. (Kindly see the evidence below in post). He further questioned that guru was on height and showered the arrows on Moguls and thus moguls couldn’t defeat khalsa.

My answer to him is in 1999, Pakistan took control of many peaks in Kargil including tiger hill but Indian army repulsed the attack and the enemy who had control on these peaks was killed and Indian army regained its control. Then why could the mighty mogul army in strength of one million was so helpless in front of guru and his 40 brave Sikhs that it couldn’t dare to face them?

He also criticizes on presence of one million Mogul army at Chamkaur Sahib and suggests to see the wikipedia or google search on battle of Chamkaur sahib.

To my surprise I once tried to edit wikipedia on this issue but some fake Sikh scholars who have published the books to distort Sikh history like Harijinder S. Dilgeer had already given a reference from their published books and wikipedia was not ready to edit it.

Now I have a historical evidence with me. In Zafarnama-a letter written to Aurangzeb by Guru Gobind Singh ji in which he mentions this strength in his own words.

See as follows;
…………
ਗੁਰਸਨਹ ਚਿਹ ਕਾਰੇ ਚਿਹਲ ਨਰ ਕਿ ਦਹ ਲਕ ਬਰਾਯਦ ਬਰੋ ਬੇਖ਼ਬਰ ੧੯
ਕਿ ਪੈਮਾਂ ਸ਼ਿਕਨ ਬੇਦਰੰਗ ਆਮਦੰਦ ਮਿਯਾਂ ਤੇਗ਼ੋ ਤੀਰੋ ਤੁਫ਼ੰਗ ਆਮਦੰਦ ੨੦
ਲਾਚਾਰਗੀ ਦਰਮਿਯਾਂ ਆਮਦਮ ਤਦਬੀਰਿ ਤੀਰੋ ਤੁਫ਼ੰਗ ਆਮਦਮ ੨੧
ਚੁ ਕਾਰ ਅਜ਼ ਹਮਹ ਹੀਲਤੇ ਦਰ ਗੁਜ਼ਸ਼ਤ ਹਲਾਲ ਅਸਤ ਬੁਰਦਨ ਸ਼ਮਸ਼ੀਰ ਦਸਤ ੨੨
——————————(ਜ਼ਫਰਨਾਮਾ )

Kindly see the second line of this para. It’s clearly written there that ki Dah Lak means ….that das lakh (one million), some historians have wrongly translated it as INFINITIVE.

Had I vowed even secretly on the book of my faith,
I would have withdrawn infantry and cavalry from the field. (18)

And, what could my forty men do (at Chamkaur), when a hundred thousand men, unawares, pounced upon them? (19)

 The oath breakers attacked them, of a sudden, with swords, arrows and guns. (20)

I had, perforce to join battle with thy hosts,

And I too fought with the muskets and arrows as best as I could. (21)

From Zafarnama.

You can read Guru Gobind Singh jee’s eye witness account of the Battle of Chamkaur in the Zafarnama, which can be downloaded from:

http://www.zafarnama.com/Download/zafarnama.pdf

(Note: Guru jee wrote about the Battle of Chamkaur Sahib on pg. 7)

But when this letter was addressed and sent to Aurangzeb who was the king and supreme commander of Mogul army, how could there be a wrong number of presence of Mogul army mentioned? He (Aurangzeb) could object on it if it had been written falsely but he was so impressed from valor of Khalsa and the strong will of guru that he wished to have a meeting with guru to sort the issue forever, thus he invited Guru to meet in south (as he was proceeding south at that time). Guruji also proceed to meet him in south but soon he came to know of his sudden demise in Ahmadnagar. Unfortunately both couldn’t meet otherwise a different history would have been written in India on that day.

These Sikhs fought with great valor, knowing well of their end but were so keen to get martyred in front of guru that they defeated Mogul army in every corner and set an unparallel valor in war history that none surrendered but got martyred and didn’t allow the Moguls to proceed even an inch forward from there place.

Guru jee saw that Nawab Wazir Khan wanted to take hold of the fort of Chamkaur in one attempt. The Nawab surrounded the fort with his armies. At this time the Singhs did a benti (request) to Guru Sahib that since there was no means of escaping the siege, for him to please escape with Sahibzadey. However Guru Sahib told them that there is no difference between the Singhs and the Sahibzadey. “You are all mine! We will be victorious and we will all be free.

Guru’s two sons got martyrdom in this battlefield but he was not shaken as he never discriminated in his own sons or Khalsa.

During the night, Bhai Daya Singh jee and Bhai Dharam Singh jee (two of the original Panj Piarey) along with Bhai Maan Singh jee and other Singhs remained in the fort of Chamkaur Sahib. There were a total of 10 Singhs left. Now the Guru-roop Panj Piarey (Five Singhs) gave Hukam to Guru Sahib to leave the fort. Guru Sahib did not leave quietly.

While leaving, Guru Sahib blew his horn and stood on high ground and clapped his hands three times saying “Peeré Hind Rahaavat” (“The “Peer” of India is Leaving”).

But none dared to stop him.

And then he left the fortress.

Note: The mughal army and 22 hilly king’s forces were of 2.5 lacs, 1 lac Ranghars joined them, 2 lacs Pathan or Afghans also joined these forces. In area around Chamkaur Sahib local Gujjars joined Mughals in large nos which made total of 10 lacs.

The Aurangzeb kept 2 lacs troops under Lahore due to fear of invasion of Persian empire in earliest part of his rule. 1 lac 50,000 troops were always there in Sirhind being the main military center apart from these military bases the Mogul were able to mobile troops from Avadh, Agra the elite of troops. At that time Mogul India had Afghan military system.The Mogul system came from Afganistan. Punjab was the big state and was pillar of Mogul empire along with Bengal and Avadhh. Apart from Mogul local Pathan tribes and Rangars joined numbering 5 lacs.

The Mogul forces that surrounded Guru ji at Anandpur Sahib consisted of forces from Lahore under Zabardast Khan around 1.5 lacs as he was ordered by Emperor to collect all forces fro Majha to ATTACK.the hilly Kings under Ajmer Chand had 80,000 troops Sirhind had 1 lac troops with 1 lac reserves and most important was the elite troops under Governor of Delhi the Turkish musketeers and most skilled Gunners in world 30,000 same troops were able to win many frontal battles for Moguls in south and in Rajputana. These battles were financed by hilly kings. Governor of Delhi was senior most official of Moguls after Emperor. The real commander in chief was Governor of Delhi who was killed on the first day of fighting in Chamkaur by an arrow of Guru ji. Other backed up forces of Kashmir, Avadh and Kabul but biggest surprise for the Sikhs was the sudden attack by 2 lacs Rangars at the other side of River Sirsa and followed up by 3 lacs Pathans and Gujjars who came voluntary for fighting .The enemy forces may be more than 10 lacs.

In Deccan many times settlements were made and broken .The Punjab was located in main base of empire and Chamkaur saheb was surrounded on three sides up to 35 KM extending up to Kurali while siege was weak from side of Machiwara as certain no of population was loyal to Khalsa and had thick jungle with large molds .Population is of little significance in war. The Punjab was second largest state after Bengal and Sirhind was commercial capital of Asia like the present day Mumbai.

Firearms were also used some canon balls have been discovered from Garhi Karseva these are available in Gurdwara sahib. In Parivar Vichhora spot moguls and hilly princes attacked from rear and 1 lac Ranghars blocked the path from front in heavy rain across the Sirsa river 2 to 3 lacs Afgans armed with Zambuarh camel guns and matchlocks were waiting for Guru ji .

It was an unequal war at Parivar Vichora. 2 Mogul Generals were killed by one to one fight with Guru ji, one was struck by spear of Guruji another got his head swung 50 feet away by single strike of Tegha of Guru ji I was shown the spot by Manager in 2005. Ranghar chief was killed by ALAM SINGH NACHNA IT IS BELIEVED THAT ALAM SINGH NACHNA’s WIFE ATTAINED MARTYDOM AT PARIVAR VICHORA AFTER THE SAHEEDI OF BAHI UDAY SINGH JI. She was hit on her head by a canon ball and sprayed with gun shots this young lady was married recently. Alam Singh ji was instructor and weapon trainer of Sahibzadas and his father was the trainer of Guru ji .This family lost 13 members in battle of parivar vichora and Chamkaur saheb.

This was the valor of khalsa, the spirit runs inherits in the vains of Khalsa and since then they are crazy to get martyrdom for their religion and self pride, their country and thus maintain high spirit. The Khalsa is thus known as SANT SIPAHI (SAINT SOLDIER).

Message of master Padmasanbhav to Buddhist before he left Tibet. Every word reflects truth when we see Buddhist’s role in Sikkim and Burma

November 13, 2017

The Sikkim is blessed by Guru Nana Dev ji only, no other Prophet of any other faith ever visited there but thankless Buddhist gives credit of blessings to Padmasanbhav who never visited there in his life time.
See this report’

THE MESSAGE DELIVERED 1200 Years AGO IS ALSO REFLECTED IN THE ACTIVITIES OF SIKKIM GOVERNMENT IN FORCED OCCUPATION OF HISTORICAL GURDWARAS OF GURU NANAK DEV JI AND IT’S ATTEMPTS TO WIPE OUT SIGNS OF VISIT OF GURU NANAK IN SIKKIM.

============================================

Last message of Padmasanbhav

The 160 pages reply of the Sikkim Government in Sikkim High Court is all fabricated & reveals the shocking details as follows:

(1)- All the evidences submitted by the Sikkim Government prepared only after the present CM Pawan Chamling took charge of the state in 1994. You can call his only achievement in the office of CM.

(2)- Not a single historical evidence from any Biography or History of Sikkim is quoted to substantiate their perjurious averments.

(3)- Neither any Biography of Sage Padmasambhava is referred to his visit to any part of Sikkim during his life time, nor Sikkim was inhabited by any human king to invite the Sage from India in 8th century.

(4)- The Sikkim Government accused Sikh Army Officers for building these Gurdwaras, Which according to False Affidavits Of Sikkim Government belonged to Padmasambhava.

The Sikkim Govt. forgets that Padmasanbhav was an Indian mystician (Tantric Master). He was invited by King Trisong Detsen, of Tibet in 8th century to control the demons who obstructed to build a monastery in the outskirts of Lhasa. Padmasanbhav assured the demons of their worship by Buddhist and then the Samye monastery could be built. He also swet a tantric school known as Nyingma (ancient) in Lhasa. Padmasanbhav controlled the demons but as he was not a prophet, he couldn’t control the conspirators in Court of the king who compelled him to leave Tibet. Ultimately after losing the battle with these conspirators, one morning Padmasanbhav transformed his Tibetan wife into a Tigress, road her to jump in clouds and disappear forever from Tibet.

He reappeared only at Tiger’s nest in Bhutan where Guru Nanak Dev ji also visited, (See history of Bhutan) 

(5)- In fear of micro-minority Sikhs in Sikkim, The Sikkim Govt. procured the orders not to post any Sikh Army Personnel and carried on their secret plan (with consent of Govt. of India),of converting historical Gurdwara into a Buddhist Temple and establish exiled Tibetan Leader Dalai Lama in Sikkim, whose sect do not believe in Guru Nanak.

(6)- We found many news reports condemning Indian army for laying mines in border line with China, accusing Indian army for killing of their Yaks in mine blasts. When we searched deeply, we found the anguish against deployment of army in border area and as the army personals have good faith in Sikh Gurus and Gurudwaras, they did the service of Gurudwara volunteerly in peace time as no Sikh was present on high altitude.

The rebuilding and renovation by army personals created jealousy in Buddhist minds who felt ignored as no one from outside world visit Gomphas to pay any reverence to their master Padmasanbhav or Lord Buddha but the jawans paid obeisance to Guru Granth Sahib and prayed for victory of nation in war, safety of their families back at home and then …… their own safety in war, (safe return to home).

Hence the CM Office targeted the Gurudwara to demoralize Indian army and to keep the soldiers away from visiting and paying obeisance before their Guru at just 20 kms before the actual border. It appears as the office of CM Sikkim has become a hub of anti-national elements hidden under false identity adorning high office of repute.

It was the only reason that CM Sikkim regretted in a press conference on 16th July 2017 when he said that he offered money for building a Monastery at Gurudongmar three times but no one came forward to build it. We may remind you that this scared lake commemorate visit and blessings to local inhabitants by Guru Nanak Dev ji, so no one came forward to demolish the Gurudwara and build a monastery but CM Sikkim indirectly lured local Buddhist by his offer.
See the evidence here;

Sikkim News

Sikkim News-1

Therefore this drama was played in 20 years in office of CM Sikkim, false reports collected on harm to eco system due to Gurdwara and sanctity of lake Guru Daangamar. One may ask these stupids there are many other Gurudwaras situated on high altitudes like in Himachal, Uttrakhand, Arunachal Pradesh and Kashmir. Whether any harm to eco system found due to visit of pilgrims to these sacred places but how could the harm reach to Guru Daangmar where hardly any Sikh pilgrimage is made other than small numbers of pilgrims?

(7)- There is no historical record to substantiate the False Affidavits and evidences produced in the Court, and it is contemptuous to the Lawful Authority Of The Court and Misleading the Court.

We hope, In the coming days final evidence shall be uploaded to reduce the evidence of Sikkim Government to nugatory before we appear in Sikkim high Court on our next date of hearing-the 1st December 2017.

The role of Buddhist kiloling the Rohingia Muslims in Burma must be seen with their changing attitude from non-violence preached by Lord Buddha to become merciless killers of innocent infants and children, rape pf Muslim women and massacre of innocent Muslims of all ages. The world must see and find out the reasons of sudden change in this suppressed community. The Dalai lama is running his exile govt from Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh,  India since 1959 but so far no country has recognized his exile govt. whereas Bangla desh was created in 1971 and immediately 9 nations recognized it.

We are gtrateful to historian Dr. Anurag Singh for his valuable contribution in writing this article.

New revelation on death of Indira Gandi

October 31, 2017

If you miss it, it will be your fault;

Radio BBC announced a news on 31st October 1984 that Indira was no more, she had been assassinated by her two Sikh body guards and a clean shaved person to-day in the morning in a shoot out at her residence.

             It was easy to know that there were two Sikhs in her assassination but the Indian security agencies are silent till date about the identity of this third clean shaved person?

The Indian embassies all over the world were informed by a telex message at 11.00 am that two Sikhs and a clean shaved person was involved in assassination of Indira Gandhi. The identity of these two Sikh persons was disclosed but who was that third person? Why any official information of his identity is never revealed? This question  was raised at number one in its list of questionnaire, consisting 38 questions sent to Nanavati commission formed officially on 08-05-2000 to probe on Sikh riots by former justice R S Narula of Punjab and Haryana High Court.

Both these Sikh body guards were Beant Singh and Satwant Singh. Both were from Delhi police. Beant Singh was a Sub-Inspector and he was appointed in security staff of Indira Gandhi since 1980. Satwant Singh was a new recruit. And only a few days ago, he was transferred in the security staff of Indira Gandhi. Beant Singh shot from his service revolver whereas Satwant Singh fired from his carbine. There is not any official information available on this third person involved in assassination.

 We have found another evidence in a website ……. http://womansavers.com/women-who-changed-history.asp

  It also reveals that there were three assassins who killed Indira Gandhi and all these three were her bodyguards

 

After killing Indira Gandhi on the spot, both these assassins handed over themselves to other security staff personals on duty. They were then taken into custody by ITBP (INDO TIBETAN BORDER POLICE) personals. Without any protest, both of them surrendered and spoke in a loud voice “we have done whatever we wanted to do, now you do whatever you want to do”. But the ITBP staff lost their patience on looking Indira fallen on ground and in a pool of blood, they opened fire on both of these unarmed men who were in their custody. Beant Singh was killed on the spot whereas Satwant Singh received bullets in his backbone and was seriously injured but alive. They were actually killed to wipe out the evidences of involvement of other influential persons in this assassination, the third clean shaved person was also killed on the spot.

So far his identity is not disclosed.

 

Death news of Indira

Sonia Gandhi—daughter in law of Indira Gandhi revealed before Vir Sanghvi, editor Hindustan times in an interview that she (Indira) used to give instruction to Rajiv (her son) to what to do and how to do after her sudden death. It’s not difficult to assume after the massacre of innocent Sikhs in Delhi and other parts of India why she chose a specific day to plan the killings of the innocent Sikhs both the times. Thanks to both the valiant martyrs who saved whole Sikh community from defamation by sacrifice of their own lives and saved thousands to be murdered brutally by Indira. Though they had to assassinate a brutal Prime Minister but in the interest of nation and the Sikh community from defamation—- the Sikh community shall always be obliged to both the martyrs Beant Singh and Satwant Singh.

[Shaheed Satwant Singh belonged to not any specific jathebandee (Organization). Here is his statement in the Supreme court of India when he was awarded the death sentence. “Let any part of my body, after my Shaheedi, be removed and used by anyone who may benefit from it . However if you need my eyes, let the authorities tell my parents. I have no hatred for any Hindu, Muslim, Christian, neither hatred for any religion. After my Shaheedi, let no Sikh throw even any rock at any Hindu. I am not in favour of any retaliation or bloodshed over my Shaheedi. If we do create bloodshed, then there is no difference between us and Rajiv Gandhi. I am Proud of the task that I did . I do ardas in front of Waheguru that If I am blessed with a human life again , then give me a death of the Brave. Forget one life, if I could I would give up a thousand lives to kill dushts like Indira Gandhi, and laugh as I become Shaheed by hanging….” ]

 How Indira was killed, who was 3rd assassin and what were the last words of Beant Singh;
Indira Gandhi was shot at 9.20 in the morning on 31st October 1984. Sub-inspector Beant Singh was standing at the gate when Indira approached there. Looking at Beant Singh she passed a smile and asked for his well being.

At this Beant Singh took out his service revolver and aimed at her. He shouted angrily and said “bitch, haramjadi (Bastard), whether your lust not fulfilled by operation bluestar that you planned for Operation Shanti?” Take the shanti (peace) now forever and after saying these words, he opened fire upon her. All the six bullets hit Indira, she fell down but not died.

His (Beant Singh’s) words and action also proves that Sikhs were in anger on her invading the holiest Sikh shrine Darbar Sahib at Amritsar in June 84 but she wasn’t killed for her action on Darbar Sahib but when she planned to defame whole Sikh nation and then eliminate them all over India. This plan was code named ‘Operation Shanti.’ Beant Singh had come to know about this diabolical plan of Indira hence she took the extreme step to silence her forever before she could execute it in her life.

Satwant Singh was not at the gate but he was coming behind Indira and other walking beside her. He immediately aimed his carbine on lower parts of Indira in full disgusting manner, angrily he emptied his service weapon and pumped all the 28 bullets below the abdomen and blown off the lower portion of the abdomen completely.

It shows all the assassins were full of hate against Indira in their minds and on abusing Indira by Beant Singh and than pumping all the bullets in lower abdomen and blew it off this portion completely proves it.

And his words with his advocate Bhupinder Singh Sodhi, he had said in his last meeting on the previous day of his life on 5th January proves his hate against those who ever think to destroy Sikh holiest shrines as…….

Satwant Singh replied, “Vakeel sahib, whenever Waheguru gives me a human life, I will once again destroy the enemies of the Sikh Nation like Indira Gandhi. The again you will come and fight my case. Those who believe in truth and human rights, will always have to fight these brutal regimes. I will keep taking births! I will keep killing dushts! You will keep meeting me!”

Dr. T D Dogra did the post-mortem on body of Indira Gandhi,. What he writes is as follows;
To avoid mutilation, as there were 30 entry wounds (firearm injuries), I took care to follow the incisions made by the surgeons.

Rest of the bullets which couldn’t be found or not taken out of her body in surgery or the post-mortem were found in her ashes.

Third assassin was a clean shaved and his name was Jaswant. His identity couldn’t beestablished if he was Jaswant kumar or Singh. Had he been a Sikh, his death must have been highlighted like Beant Singh but we are sure that he was Hindu so his identity is never disclosed.  He too got martyred as reported in Punjab Kesri dt. 1-11-84.

This report was flashed on wireless to Gurdaspur police in Punjab within 15 minutes from Delhi. The wireless operator was asked to wait for following message that ‘Mootralaya Bhawan of indira has been blown off with bullets,’ he was directed to convey the message to CRPF personal attached with police station there so that they may not move anywhere on any operation but wait for following message in which orders supposed to be given to search house of Satwant singh, a resident of village Agwan in distt. Gurdaspur.

The wireless operator kept on waiting but second message was not received till 1.00 O’clock.

I have disclosed it in my book to pay the homage to all these martyrs who laid down their lives to save Sikh nation from defamation and to avenge the invasion on Darbar Sahib.

Now the truth is here (never revealed) before you. Please pay your tributes for all these 4 martyrs Beant Singh, Satwant Singh, Kihar Singh and Jaswant.

Guru Nanak visited Tibet in 1517, historical references are there but Sikkim govt wilfully removing all signs of his visit

September 26, 2017

“Lie remains a lie even if it is spoken from the high pedestal of a throne.

Truth remains a truth even when uttered from the dark dungeon by a common man.

Lie will remain a lie even when repeated daily.

Truth remains a shinning star to enlighten the dark corners of human souls.

Lie is on its way to defeat.

Truth is on its way to Victory. Truth takes its own time to reveal but ultimately it reveals.”

Friends,

Islam claims: Sikhism is very close to it,

Hindus claims: Sikhism is their sect,

Tibetan observed: Buddha and Guru Nanak preaches the same.

Even they all having animosity with Sikhs, eliminate them, demolish their Gurudwaras(places of worship)  and make every effort to merge Sikhi with them?


This post is a first hand information collected by Major N S Issar in 1964 and published in The Sikh Review Calcutta in its January 1965 issue on pp. 21-26., and reprinted in The Punjab: Past and Present(1969,pp.328-333), a Journal of Punjabi University, Patiala.

From this write up of Major N S Issar it is patent that:

(1) He had gathered the information on Chungthang Gurdwara and its related memorials-Mound with footprints of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Spring Water from this mound, Rice and Banana crops, two huge trees around it, multi-coloured flags- from the Local Lamas who migrated to this land from Tibet after Tibet was forcibly occupied by China in 1959.

(2) The Lama from Tibet was 6.6′ Feet tall with long hairs of a Yogi. His talk was interpreted by a local Lama well-versed in Gorkhali, Lapcha, Bhutia, Tibetan and Hindi languages.

(3) This Tibetan Lama in exile during his conversation uttered the name NANAK and explained that Nanak among the locals is revered as Rimpoche (Precious Master)Nanak Guru.

(4) Crops of Rice and Banana, a gift from Guru Nanak, to this land of Apple and Maize was astonishing.

(5) Another Lama from Tibet was in Sikkim for Nirvana and from his bag he produced a miniature of Guru Nanak of Amritsar removing all doubts of Major Issar on Guru Nanak’s Visit to Sikkim.

(6) Lama Shri Gelong Chang Chube of Lachung Gompha confirmed that Rimpoche Nanak Guru of Punjab visited Sikkim and this is the firm belief of the locals. This area was visited only once 54 years back by a French Couple in 1910.

(7) This Lama also talks about a Stone Memorial in Gurmukhi or Hindi giving details of Guru Nanak’s visit. We have already posted the picture of the Stone Memorial, discovered much later by the Army Personnel and is again uploaded as record.

This small write up written 52 years back conclusively substantiate the fact that Padmasambhava’s sect and area of preaching is confined to Tibet only, and he never visited Sikkim. Sikkim was inhabited 500 years later in 13th Century.

The writer has mentioned Baba Bedi, full name P.L. Bedi father of film actor Kabir Bedi and author of Brief Life of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and First Translation of Zafarnamah into English.

Hence this piece of information by a Tibetan Buddhist is sufficient to demolish the misleading lies and perjurious averments of the Sikkim Government Officials to occupy Sikh Gurdwaras to convert them into Idol Worshippers Temples in the name of Padmasambhava.

How the history of Gurudwara Gurudongmar is distorted by Sikkim govt is clearly visible from this above pasted copy of a board promoting falsehood?

The Sikh review

Guru Nanak in Tibet
By:- Tarungpa Tulku

I am uploading an important paper written by a Tibetan Buddhist, Tarungpa Tulku ,which was published in India Times, Delhi dated March 6, 1966 (p.3) and was reproduced in Punjab: Past and Present(1969)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It gave me great pleasure when I was asked to write the article I have wanted for a long time to say something about my interest of the religion of the Sikhs in India, and of my connection with it. After my escape from Tibet, I live as a refugee in India for several years, alongside so many of my countrymen. There I had the great good fortune to be looked after by a Sikh family, by Baba Bedi, his English wife and their three children. While I was with them, I was able to visit many of the Sikh holy places and I was given hospitality there.

My interest in Sikhi is not only a personal one, however, in Tibet, Guru Nanak ji is revered as an incarnation of Guru Padmasanbhav. Many of our pilgrims visited Amritsar and other holy places which they looked upon as equal in inmportance to Baudh Gaya. They always said that the Sikhs treated them with great respect and were very hospitable: ‘as our expression goes, they bowed down to their fact.’ It seems that Sikhs really practice the doctrine of their religion; perhaps they are the only ones who give such wonderful dana to travelers

Most Tibetans know that Guru Nanak visited Tibet, and the systical ideas of the two religions are very similar. I have noticed that Sikhs never worship images in their shrines, but that there is in the center of the book, the Guru Granth Sahib. In our tradition, one of the last things that the Buddha said was that in the dark age after his death he would return in the form of the books. “At that time,” he said, “ Look upto me and respect me.” Just as we do not believe in justifying rituals, so in the Sikh ceremonies, it seems that the people simply read and contemplate the words of their text, so that no misunderstanding arises.

I was very interested in the Sikh symbolism of the three daggers; In Buddhism, a knife often appears as the cutting off of the roots of the three poisons; greed, hatred and illusion. I was also very interested in the Sikh practices never to cut one’s hair, as this is also the practice among Tibetan hermits and contemplatives. The most famous of these was Mihrepa, who said that there were three things that should be left in their natural state, one should not cut one’s hair, dye one’s clothes, nor change one’s mind. It’s true that most Tibetan Monks wear yellow, and shave their heads; these are practices that come from India, and symbolize humility and detachment from worldly things. Outside the more organized monastic tradition, however the the emphasis is that the natural goodness and power of growth within should be allowed to develop freely without interference from outside.

Both Guru Nanak and Buddha said that their followers that the real nature of the universe should never be limited by the idea of personal God or Gods. Those who made offerings at their shrines should remember that whole universe was the proper offering (…..) before and itself. Although Guru Nanak dis not think of himself as the founder of a new school of thought, it seems there is very much in common between our philosophies.

When i return to India, I hope to increase understanding of the Sikh religion among Tibetan people, and it’s my wish one day to translate the Guru Granth Sahib into Tibetan. Now I am living in England and I can see much good might be accomplished by Sikhism in England, and Europe, and America, and I wish success to everyone whose concerns this is.

Letter sent to PM Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh exposing attempts to convert Sikh (Temple) Gurudwara into Budhist Monastery by CM Sikkim Pawan Chamling

September 5, 2017

Travel route

 

The letter sent to honorable Prime Minister Narendra Damodar Modi could not be received at any of his personal or official mail but then a copy of the same was sent to Home Minister Rajnath Singh ji was received. I hope it reveals necessary truth on existence of Gurudwara before Sikkim govt enacted any law in 1991 on Forest prevention, misused in 2017 to forcefully evacuate it and build a new Monastery there demolishing it. He himself confessed that he offered three times in previous years to build a Budhist Monastery at GuruDongmar lake but no one came forward.

Sikkim News

What does it mean? Why did no body came forward to accept the lucrative offer?

 

Its because the yellow capped Lamas inhabitants in this part of Sikkim are followers of guru Nanak and they name him in due respect as ‘RIMPOCHEY GURU NANAK OF PANJAB’.
It’s the reason that nobody accepted this offer and prepared himself to demolish Sikh Gurudwara built to commemorate historical visit of Guru Nanak in beginning of 15th century.

If the Sikkim is known as land of Rice in whole Tibet, it must always be thankful to Guru Nanak who spread boiled rice in fields and blessed the land, now it’s a rich state in growing rice in it’s fields at high altitude. No where in the world rice grows at similar high altitude.

Guru Nanak also grew Banana trees and Sikkimese now grow Bananas but why do they want to bring Padmasambhav in it whereas he never visited in this valley, He eloped with his horse from Samye Monaestry, Lhasa and never seen afterwards.

Sub: Historical Gurudwara GuruDongmar sealed and forcefully evacuated  by Sikkim govt and Chungthang on scrutiny.

 

 

Dear Sir,

               Being a faithful citizen of India, I would like to bring in your kind notice and put some facts before your good self as follows on how Sikkim Govt. is changing its status as a Budhist state and has become a threat to secular image of India by acting against micro minority the Sikhs in this border state where Sikh soldiers are deployed to safeguard its borders. It’s playing with fire and a little spark can push whole nation on unrest and cause defamation to the structure of secular nation.

The history of Gurudwara Dongmaar:

Records show that during his journeys to the Himalayas and the Far East, including China, Guru Nanak visited all these states around 1516 AD. This itinerary is found recorded in Janam Sakhee Bhai Bala; Janam Sakhee Walait Wali; Janam Sakhee Meharban; Janam Sakhee B-40; Suchak Parsang by Bhai Behlo; Mahima Parkash by Baba Sarup Chand; Parchian Sewa Das; Nanak Prakash by Bhai Santokh Singh; Nanak Parkash, Twarikh Guru Khalsa and Gurdham Prakash by Gyani Gian Singh; Guru Khalsa Twareekh by Giani Lal Singh (Sangrur); Jeevan Charit Guru NanakDev ji by Dr. Trilochan Singh; Travels of Guru Nanak by Dr. Surinder Singh (Kohli); Atlas of Travels of Guru Nanak by Dr Fauja Singh and Kirpal Singh; Guru Nanak’s Travels to Himalayan and East Asian Region by Dr. Dalvinder Singh (Grewal) (the author), and a host of other researchers. Though Janamsakhis and other contemporary material are vague about the names of the places, yet they are specific about Al-Lachen Bhutan Des which are specially mentioned in these Janamsakhis.


The local people of the area and Lamas of Karma-pa Nying-ma-pa Sect confirm Guru Nanak’s visit to these areas. The Lamas from these areas have been visiting Golden Temple, Amritsar, regularly to pay obeisance to their beloved Guru Rimpoche, Guru Nanak, also known as NanakLama in their areas. Guru Nanak’s footprints, a robe and a water-carrying utensil (kamandal) are preserved in Lachen Gompha, Sikkim, commemorating his visit to the place.

After his visit to Kailash-ManSarovar, Guru Nanak returned along Kali River and went to Nepal, where an ancient Gurdwara at Kathmandu, on the bank of river Bishnumati commemorates his visit. Visiting various religious places in Nepal, he crossed over to Tibet through Nanak-la pass and reached Sakya monastery. The earlier king of Tibet from Karma-pa Sect was, by then, deposed by the Ge-lug-pa sect but was still holding on to this monastery. Guru Nanak helped Trasung Deochung reconstruct this monastery. Trasung Deochung honoured him with a robe that is preserved in Lachen Gompha.
From Tibet, Guru Nanak entered Sikkim through Chhorten-Nyi-ma-la. Passing through Dolma Sampa and Tongpen, he entered Muguthang valley where he visited Kedang, Bendu, Sherang, Lyingka, and Muguthang. He went through Naku la and Lawu Gompha and reached plateau area around Guru Dongmar.

In this plateau the yak grazers approached Guru Nanak with a request, that: “they do not find water in winter as it gets frozen all over, temperature falling down to minus 35 degrees.” The Guru (Guru Nanak) hit the perpetually snow-covered Guru Dongmar Lake with his stick to provide water to the grazers. The ice melted giving way to crystal clear water. Since then the water of the lake is stated to never freeze. The lake and the hill feature atop came to be known as Gurudongmar Lake and hill respectively. The same names are found recorded in the ancient maps prepared by the British in nineteenth century.

Some grazers projected another problem to Guru Nanak. Due to the effect of altitude, their virility was affected. They requested the Guru to do something about it. Guru Nanak blessed the lake, saying,” Whosoever takes the water of this lake will gain virility and strength and will be blessed with children.” The people of the area have firm faith in Guru’s words and consider the water of the lake as nectar. A Gurdwara was constructed in eighties to commemorate Guru Nanak’s visit to the place. We used to trek to Gurudongmar then, after traveling from Chungthang on foot, covering the distance in six days.

The Gurdwara was constructed after full inquiries from head lamas of Buddhist monitories (gomphas) at Fudong, Chungthang, Lachen, Lachung and Thangu and all the local people, and with their active help.

Some facts on Gurudwara GuruDongmar:

1)-   That The Gurudwara GuruDaangmar is built at Dongmar lake in Sikkim since 1969-70 before merger of Sikkim into India to commemorate visit of Guru Nanak Dev ji at this place. The historical significance, its evidences are mentioned in holy scriptures and many books of Sikh religion.

2)-    That It forcefully occupied historical Gurudwara GuruDongmar which is situated on high altitude of more than 17000 feet and not possible for any attendant to live there 24 hrs. In absence of any attendant, Granthi singh of Gurudwara, the SDM Chungthang Sonam Topge Tashi along with other officials forcefully broke opened the locks of Gurudwara, confiscated the Holy Guru Granth Sahib ji, it’s treasury box, other holy scriptures and the daily used items to perform worship in a Gurudwara without any presence of a duty Magistrate and brought it down to another historical Gurudwara Nanak Lama Sahib at Chungthang and abandoned the confiscated items on the roadside in a street.

3)-    That the video of abandoned Guru Granth Sahib ji and other holy items sent a wave of anger in Sikhs all over the world. They felt betrayed and hurt as by this mean act of disrespect and sacrilege of their Guru of Sikh religion by a govt official violating Sikh Code of Conduct, without intimating the authenticated and constitutionally elected Gurudwara Management committees or without issuing any notice before sealing the Gurudwara, the CM Sikkim Pawan Chamling and SDM Sonam Topge Tashi caused hurt the religious sentiments and misused official powers given to them.

4)-  That the said Gurudwara in decades have earlier been also tried to convert into a temple, but then Lt. Gen. HRS Kalkat converted it into Sarv-Dharm-Sthal to pacify Sikh soldiers and the Sikh world but when this was noticed by some pilgrims, they complained on its conversion to a temple to SGPC in 1997.

       Than the President Gurcharan Singh Tohra called upon Sh. George Fernandez, than Defense Minister of India who ordered to remove all encroachments and unauthorized conversions of the Gurudwara and since than the daily recitation of Guru Granth Sahib ji could be restored till date before it was locked and sealed by Sikkim administration.

5)-      That the Gurudwara is historical and looked after and maintained by army personal who are indirectly the custodians of this Gurudwara for decades. All the soldiers having faith in Guru Granth Sahib pay their obeisance there before going on war front and pray for the victory of the nation and their safe return.

           Whether sealing the Gurudwara GuruDongmar and converting it into a Budhist Monastery the Sikkim govt. not made jeopardize in faith of those soldiers who moved ahead on war front, many got martyred, sacrificed their lives, could never return and with others who are deployed there away from home?

6)-   That the belongings of Guru Nanak Dev ji are still preserved safely with Lachen Monastery and we have list and pictures of those belongings, the history of this sacred place are all on threat to be changed by Sikkim govt under a malicious intention to keep this zone reserved for Budhist place of worship only. To achieve their goal, the Sikkim govt enacted some laws in past and gradually strengthened itself to misuse those laws to takeover the Gurudwaras there.

7)-       That after taken over the Gurudwara GuruDaangmaar, the Sikkim govt keeping it’s evil eye on other historical Gurudwara at Chungthang, it has issued the notice of illegal encroachment of few feet after construction of Gurudwara decades ago.  Were the authorities sleeping or un-functional that they suddenly got awoken to abolish Sikh culture, its customs, its religious places of worship in the state?

8)-    That as we got the news of forced evacuation, we immediately filed a PIL in Supreme court on 23rd August 2017. The honorable Supreme Court ordered the state of Sikkim to maintain status quo till 13th Sep as on this date another relevant appeal is going to be heard in Sikkim High Court.

9)-    That the Sikkim state has restricted Sikhs to visit/pilgrimage at Gurudwara GuruDongmar without issuing any notification. In this modern era when the bio-metric signs of every citizen, is preserved through Adhar card and other information from other IDs, is it not a violation of fundamental rites of the people born in this nation to whom Constitution allows profess of their religion?

           Than why do the Sikhs only targeted by Sikkim govt and restricted to visit their shrines? Is Sikkim not a part of India that we Sikhs have to obtain a permission like Visa to roam freely?

Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukarji was also not permitted to enter state of J&K and he had to start an agitation and sat on protest, he offered his arrest in protest. Since than the entry is opened to citizens of India, in state of J&K,

          Than why does the state of Sikkim not allow Sikhs to pay obeisance to their guru in their shrine at Guruwara GuruDaangmaar?

But before a legal case start and years of pleading in courts wasted, and Sikhs feel not part of this nation, we humbly request to use your influence and amend the said enacted laws which are misused to takeover the religious places of one faith, to be used by other faith. If it becomes a practice and followed by other states, what will be the future of India, it can be well imagined?

           And sir, by the directions given by Supreme Court, we the petitioners and witnesses in this case shall have to appear before Sikkim High Court in Gangtok before 13th Sep. 2017 but we are feared of illegal apprehension on our entrance in Sikkim. If harassed,detained or arrested on fabricated, concocted stories by Sikkim police, its whole liability will be upon Mr. Pawan Chamling, CM Sikkim and SDM Sonam Topge Tashi only.

       We hope your good self will consider our request in the interest of nation and do the needful to restore religious practices and free access to Gurudwara GuruDongmaar by all, without any restriction in future, we shall always be grateful and oblige to you.

Pawan Chamling, CM Sikkim first forcefully evacuated Gurudwara GuruDaangmar, targetted the next at Chungthangn now gives assurance to protect them but whether Sikhs permitted to visit there?

September 5, 2017

Attempt to occupie Gurudwara by Lamas

The gurudwara Gurudaangmar is seen locked and sealed, a notice is pasted on it, Budhist flags are seen as evidence to convert Sikh religious place into Budhist place of worship in aaBudhist majority state. The engraved stone writing is also tried to remove and unreadable on Gurudwara.

I wonder how politicians change their views, their opinions, their committed sins but immediately change their stances when exposed like CM Sikkim Pawan Chamling who misused his official position and his office by taking advantage of laws enacted in 1991 and than 2001 to take over the forced control of Gurudwara GuruDangmar in Sikkim, its SDM Chungthang Sonam Topge Tashi locked and sealed the dorrs of Gurudwara, forcefully evacuated it, sacrileges the holy Guru Granth Sahib by confiscation, packing and placing in a dis-respective manner in a vehicle, its treasury box, and other religious scriptures other than holy items to be used in a Gurudwara, were taken away and brought downto 80 kms down at Gurudwara Chungthang and abondoned on the roadside in a street on 16th August 2017 before these officials moved away.

When the video shots gone viral on this disrespect, the Sikkim govt issued a Press release and its SDM Sonam Topge Tashi explained every detail in it which you can read at https://asrandhawa.wordpress.com/2017/08/30/misuse-of-official-position-by-chief-minister-sikkim-and-sdm-chungthang-to-takeover-sikh-shrines-of-guru-nanak-dev-ji/ . Our reply is also given at same Press release in red letters.

In response, SIkkim govt tried to terrorize Sikh world by threatening and misleading the nation on encroachment of a Gurudwara Chungthang built in 1969, a tean by revenue officials other concerned agencies was sent there to measure the land. It didn’t end by scrutiny only but took a step to hurt Sikh sentiments when the Govt erected a wall in front of this Gurudwara to obstruct the visiting devotees as Sikhs are micro minority in Sikkim. The civilian sikhs may not be a dozen, if Sikhs mark their presence in this state that is due to their posting in this sensitive zone but Sikkim govt. awarded them in return of their services to this nation by forcefully occupying their Gurudwaras, inciting them to revolt.

Desecretion of SGGS-1

Yesterday in a meet with delegation of DSGMC in Delhi, Pawan kumar assured to sort out this dispute by 15th and set up a committee to loon into this dispute.

We Sikhs all over the world would like to ask him who created this dispute? His response was that it was not the state govt behind this misshapen but local Lamas. This way he wants to create tension and animosity in local Lamas and the Sikh community. If the local Lamas did it, why no action is ever taken by state govt and no arrest till date, why Gurudwara is sealed and a notice pasted?

What for and by whom?

Is this not the hypocrisy?

Why Sikh organization not file FIR in every state against CM Sikkim and SDM Chungthang on confiscation of SGGS and its abandoning roadside

August 31, 2017

This needs attention of Sikh world all over the world.

How is it possible that a Gurudwara on high altitude where pilgrimage round the year is not possible, Sikhs in micro-minority and the visitors have to obtain a permit to visit this sacred shrine built in commemorating visit of founder of Sikh religion in early 15th century, could be forcefully evacuated by broken up the locks, the present Guru of Sikh religion the Guru Granth Sahib ji is confiscated, packed in a vehicle along with all other religious scriptures and holy items before the Gurudwara is sealed, a notice is pasted on its entry gate and brought down 100 away to Chungthang and abandoned on roadside in a road/street leading to a another historical place Gurudwara Chungthang.

Desecretion of SGGS-1

The SDM Chungthang Sonam Topgay Tashi made a blunder mistake by forcefully entering the Gurudwara and confiscating all holy items including eternal present Guru of Sikh religion whom he is not even permitted to touch it. He committed sacrilege for which he can’t be forgiven. He didn’t did it by mistake but with consent of CM Sikkim who is keen to remove the Gurudwara and raise a new Budhist Monastry at its place. He (The CM) himself has confessed in a statement given on 14th July which is published in “Sikkim News” dated 15th July 2017.  He regretted that despite his offer the amount 3 times, none has come forward to build it.

Sikkim News-1

Than he announced that he has granted 50 Lac to Lachen Monastry to clean this surrounding of the lake but whether not with a mal-intention in heart to takeover the religious place of other faith? To achieve his mission game started to play with his swearing in the office of Chief Minister in 1994? Whether Lachen monastry is a cleaning agency? How many projects of cleaning at large scale it has taken over previously and whether registered with Sikkim govt. for this purpose? Whether tenders invited for this purpose?

If not than why this Lachen Monastry is chosen?

See the enlarged view of fifth column in Sikkim news,picture of page is pasted above.

Sikkim News

The answer is very simple. Guru Nanak Dev ji visited this valley in his 3rd travels. He also visited this Lachen Monastry and they honored guru Nanak by calling him ‘Rimpochey Guru Nanak of Punjab’. His Robe, Kamandal and foot prints are still preserved and few writing written by Guru Nanak ji himself. They used to display all these items to sikh pilgrimages and other visitors to Monastry. The Everest climbers have also seen them and mentioned in their memoirs and in books written by them.

Foot print of guru nanak in Lachen Monastry
Gurus belongings with Lachen Monastry
But under political influence of CM Pawan Chamling or on his instructions these holy items are no more shown to visitors now. The reason could be vested interest, monoply in region and greed of offer of money assured by CM.

I could never imagine if believers of Guru Nanak who were blessed by him, given water to be available whole year despite temperature in minus when lake gets frozen, the boon of fertile power to humans who were mostly impotent in bitter cold, have become so thankless that they have become a party with govt to abolish all memories of their savior.

SHAME ON THESE LAMAS AND THE LACHEN MONASTRY.

This is called kaliyuga.

Though the Gurudwara is situated at inner line and on high altitude but in modern times it’s easy to reach any difficult place in any isolated place like Hemkund in Uttrakhand is also situated at 15210 feet height and pilgrims have to walk 19 kms one way to reach this place. But this Gurudwara Dongmar which could be reached by motorable road could bring more tourism in state. Millions of Sikhs go on pilgrimage in Uttrakhand at Hemkund Sahib. In my first visit to Hemkund Sahib in 1973, i had to obtain a permit for visiting this Sikh shrine but now its opened for all.

Though Hindus are also in Sikkim but have no religious significance with Dongmar lake but under the secret plan, its agencies incited Hindus who placed their flag and constructed a structure adjoining wall of Gurudwara.

Disrespect of Gurudwara by visitors

It seems CM Pawan Chamling could not digest it and he got infuriated and than he incited the local Baudhs who then slowly tried to convert this Sikh temple (Gurudwara) into Budhist temple. They ties their religious flags to give a false impression if this was a Budhist temple.

SarvDharm Sthal

Seeing this and on complaints by Sikh soldiers the Lt. Gen. HRS Kalkat took a strange decision, he converted it into SARV DHARM STHAL.

The miscreants tried to remove words ‘Sahib Gurudwara” from this engraving but easily readable and clears the mal-intention behind such malicious and condemn able act as it’s disrespect to those soldiers who visited this sacred place, prayed for victory of nation and their safe return. What did they get in lieu of it other than HUMILIATION.

Evidence-4

but when this was noticed by Sardar Harbhajan Singh Setia in his visit in 1997. He complained with Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee in Amritsar. On receiving the complaint on such a grave error on part of Sikkim govt (Than also CM Pawan Chamling was CM Sikkim), then President Gurcharan Singh Tohra immediately called than Defense Minister George Fernandez who immediately removed these flags and the structure. and the Gurudwara was restored.

press-release1

We regret that picture is not very clear but readable.

Than having bad eyes on Gurudwara two new acts introduced in 2001 to take over the Sikh Gurudwara but whether the law only made to declare this lake sacred for Budhist only? Could any state declare any place for a single religion and hurt the religious sentiments of other faiths who too have historical and religious significance with said place?

We would like to remind CM Pawan Chamling, we have scholars who have studied on Tibet and fully aware to discuss on visit of Tantrik Guru Padmasanbhav who never visited in southern Tibet and specially to Dongmar lake, no historical reference is ever provided in history books but we won’t mind if Lachen Monastry betrays and turns from Karma-pa to Padmasanbhav as they have shown their loyalty to CM Pawan Chamling not to Guru Nanak.

But we can prove that Guru Nanak ji visited this region, his travel route, his meeting in  different Monastries and to this lake also.

We shall be grateful and always be obliged to those Sikh organizations who file a criminal law suit on conspiracy, creating tension and animosity in two peace loving communities and damaging peace and harmony of state, threatening law and order  by distrust and hate among Budhist and Sikhs.

MISUSE of OFFICIAL POSITION by CHIEF-MINISTER SIKKIM and SDM CHUNGTHANG to TAKEOVER SIKH SHRINES OF GURU NANAK DEV JI;

August 30, 2017

Friends,

As the information is pouring out the illegal drama hatched by the Sikkim Government by misquoting the provisions of Forest Conversation Act 1991 is now open.

Chief-Minister and SDM Exceeded their Briefs
————————————————
Mr.Pawan Chamling, the Chief-Minister of Sikkim and Mr. Sopnam Tobgey Tashi, SDM Chungthang have taken the shelter of perfidious lies to promote their own faith at the cost of Sikhism with following blatant lies:

(1) The army built Gurdwaras in violation of the Forest Conservation Act 1991.

(2) The place belongs to their Tantric Guru,Lama Padmasambhava.

(3) So Chief-Minister announced construction of a Monastery at Guru Dongmar and offered Rs.50,00,000/ for its construction by demolishing the Gurdwaras which existed long before.

In these announcements both Chief-Minister as well as SDM exposed themselves to public ridicule on the following counts:

(i) Both the Government Officials have casted aspersions on the noble work done by Army. Let them first file a complaint with the Chief-Of The Army Staff to do Court Martial of the concerned Army Officers,who had allegedly violated the Act as alleged by these two Government Officials.

(ii) On the contrary the provisions of the said Act provides for conservation of any place of worship which existed before August 15,1947.

(iii) We have already given plethora of documents from the books(even 300 years old) that Lama Padmasambhava never visited Sikkim during his life-times.What are the documents which these Government Officials created to put their false claim over the places,connected with Guru Nanak Dev Ji,which existed 500 years ago and on the basis of evidence available on the spot the Gurdwaras were constructed sometime in 1965-66.

(iv) Which law permitted these two Government Officials to indulge in acts of blasphemy by removing Guru Granth Sahib from the Gurdwara, when no Monastery of Lama Padmasambhava ever existed before August 15, 1947, according to law quoted by these Government Servants.

(v) When no Monastery ever existed and the Chief-Minister as well as SDM are showing unusual keen interest and undue haste in demolishing the existing religious place to promote their own faith, which is violative of Oath of Constitution which they have taken.

(vi) Why Chief-Minister and SDM are creating communal tension in a peaceful society, which existed till date to promote their personal faith by suppressing the faith of not only the Sikhs but also Karmapa Sect (Yellow Hats) who worship Guru Nanak Dev Ji as Guru Rimpoche-Precious Teacher?

Live evidence Gurudwara in Tin shed

The Gurudwara built in Tin shed by army personal, photograph taken by Col. Ranjit Singh in 1992, Sikh flag Nisan sahib is visible in this picture.

In this post more evidence is being uploaded as per details given below:

(a) Travels of Guru Nanak by Dr Surinder Singh Kohli,(1969)
published by Panjab University Chandigarh.
(b) Maj.N.S.Issar’s on the spot study in 1965, published in The Sikh Review Calcutta, January 1965, reprinted by Punjabi University, Patiala in its Journal,”Punjab:Past and Present,Vol.111,1969.
(c) Guru Nanak’s Travels to Himalayas and East Asian Region,by Col. Dalwinder Singh Grewal,(1995) along with photos.
(d) Tantric Buddhism, edited by Dr N.N.Bhattacharya.

The Chief-Minister’s conspicuous silence on SGPC’ many letters on the issue from 2015-2017 does not speak well of the intention and working of C.M.Sikkim.

Please use this revealing evidence to file complaints with Governor Sikkim,President Of India and as additional evidence to make these two Government Officials as party in the ongoing case.

Evidence from Rashtrapati Bhawan
Do you need any other evidence that the letter from Sena Bhavan to Rashtrapati Bhawan mentioning the name of Gurudwara Dongmar to be visited for a pilgrimage?

Could the Sikkim govt deny if there was no Gurudwara and no pilgrimage to this Sikh shrine in 2000?
We were two petitioners in Supreme court by by rules only one petitioner could argue and be present in Court, so my co-petitioner, a law student from Mumbai decided to be sent to present the Sikh world there.
When The court asked state council of Sikkim to reply on issue, he concealed the facts from Court and lied before the supreme court that there was no role of State govt but of local lamas and that the matter is pending in Sikkim high court.
My co-petitioner didn’t realize the seriousness otherwise he must have brought it in the notice of Court. But i am sure if any judge reads it, he can take a sou-motto action and call the State council to clarify his position on his false statement in court.

If this was act of hooligan or by some local Lamas, why did the state govt, its police not take a stern and prompt action to arrest them? But the state govt was itself a party in it as it forcefully broke opened the locks of Gurudwara, confiscated Guru Granth Sahib ji, it’s treasury box, and other holy items, packed in a vehicle (without following any Skh Code of Conduct or legal notice), than the state agencies brought these religious articles of faith and abandoned them in a street leading to Gurudwara Chungthang 100 kms away.

Could any authority confiscate the Guru Granth Sahib ji which is bestowed present Guru of Sikh religion by last human Guru in 1708 and declared a JURISTIC PERSON by Supreme Court in India?
Pass issued by DC Mangan Sikkim
The Horns are not grown on foreheads of foolish people but they prove their foolishness by their stupidious acts only.
The DC Mangan (A place in between Gangtok and Chungthang) issued passes to 3 Sikh pilgrims in July 2017 for visiting Gurudwara Guru Dongmar but the SDM Chungthang lies with nation just after one month that there was no Gurudwara at Dongmar lake.
