Unethical Might of INDIA - pushing HINDOOSTAN of NANAK Times to illusionary Vedic chapters......AGENDA after Journey for 550 years?
The Global population today, on 195 Country platforms, is for about 755 Crs. The natives of Punjab with India continue being referred as among developing category of countries. Generations 2 generation in last 5 centuries dealt with complex crises of life for one or the other model, but with extremely painful ones in last seven decades. Most of crises created ones by religiously ethical jealousies, including divide of Punjab civilization and surgical re birth of India 1947.
Thus, the life of a Punjabi civilization greatly got influenced with certain critical events one after the other; 1947, 1962, 1965, 1971, 1984, 1985-1995, 2014. Such events brought economical & psychological imprints on Sikh Diaspora. These invited focus on evaluations in regards for advantage/actual loss on packing out for British Indian administration! The primary natives for Nanak’s state earlier celebrated 500th Birth in 1969 at Amritsar and made certain emotional “Declarations & self Promises” but most not cared neither acted upon!
Many world level events were organized in 1969 in remembrance for 500th Birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Sahib. The then assembly of eminent drew attention of world over governments on the values to be cherished and practiced on fundamentals of the teachings, which included; "Global Peace" & "Welfare of All". A fresh appeal in this line was made for dismantling religious compartmentalization, which has been brought back under shelters of Vedic misinterpretations for the lessons and those referred for practice, such as Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas, Shudras. Punjab by & large collectively took the lead in these directions and called upon co citizens for extending equal rights to all without discrimination.
Political promises on practice for the peace got hurt just after a gap for two years from 1969 celebrations, when India in 1971 got involved for good or bad in WAR COMPLEXITIES of Bangla Desh, which ended in further divide in them by creation of another country. Sikh Diasporas had been regularly holding prayers before almighty in facilitate unrestricted darshan of Sikh holly places left in neighborhood country by alleged political mistrust & conspiracies. The recent happenings with blessings of almighty moving towards that direction with symbolic path for visit to Kartarpur Sahib with role and applications of mature minds representing both countries for celebrations for 550 Birth anniversaries of Guru Nanak Sahib.
Therefore Sikh faith followers while on journey from 1947 to conditions 1969, had unfortunately reportedly encountered discriminatory conduct of Red Fort and fell down injured economically in ICU by 2019. The state Leaderships also could not ensure accountabilities and none Justice Application for June 84/ Nov 1984, neither for alleged eliminations of innocent Sikh Youth 1985-1995, nor identification for those who brought disrespect to Shri Guru Granth Sahib in 2014 onwards. Punjab undergoing sufferings on drugging of its Youth –Farmers suicides, injustice on robbed river waters & now being pushed losing rightful claims with opposing Might of Red Fort. The legitimate principle for controls & share for Energies from Bhakhra made to forget. The restrictions on ideas of Punjabis & Sikhs in buying agriculture land, being farmers in neighborhood states etc reminds on added pain in Life of them in context of another ritual remembrance for teaching of Baba Nanak during events for 550th birth year 2019?
The physical land & civilization of Punjab along with most other partner states of Hindoostan has also journeyed through many uncomfortable chapters in past history. Many a rulers failed to protect and defend its native from Muslim and later British invaders and got hurt them between 1499-1947. The quality of rule in Muslim-Mughal Era was religiously discriminatory but awakening brought during Guru Nanak 2 Guru Gobind Singh Era magically encouraged Sikhs for defensive –offensive War options & Victories achieved under Baba Banda Singh Bahadur. Mughal rule tasted defeat for the first time on continuous rule of few centuries. Era of Sikh Misals united Punjabis for confrontation with invaders in achievement of the basic civil liberties during their Times, Maharaja Ranjit Singh ensured exemplary Justice with equality mechanisms during his Governance, British Indian era & post British India time line happenings contributed many unforgettable/ unpardonable Lessons to the natives of Punjab cultural Nation.
Punjabis otherwise inherited natural talent for survival under stressful circumstances due to regular invasions on them and they often recall comparative time narratives of past rulers in terms of their levels of their sincerity towards natives. Their experience conveys that number for insensitive leaderships regrettably stood multiplied in last 70 years. Quite a big number of Sikh civilization lost faith in the practiced model of justice mechanism of Bharat and further believe the continuity of none judicial, step motherly conduct of Red Fort towards Punjab. Many of them also do not rule out revisit of difficult Mughal/British category crises and those may be more critical in line with unaccountable tragedies June/Nov 1984. Internationally amalgamated contents of the book, being Indian constitution, was perhaps a collective wish of creators for self Governance in socialistic democratic modules but practically in post 47, proved just for paper valued with actual superiority for “Might is Right”. The increased discriminatory nature conduct of Red Fort regulators towards minorities, being Sikhs, Muslim & Christians has virtually finished their trust in Indian Parliament, Judicial & Executive system operations.
Baba Nanak was a proud native of HINDOOSTAN in his times, & on invasion of an Arab, he poetically -publically dared declaring Invader; Babar- a Jabbar, and inked many a pro people welfare protest poetries, which brought him to jail. Interestingly, the labeled Jallam- Babar too perhaps had heart, and when got to know on Baba Nanak being a spiritual personality, ordered release of saint with apologies. The demand for restoration of certain fundamental natural state rights being shown to other Bharat as secessionist – anti national! None being allowed speaking in a TRUTHFUL manner. It is unfortunate that majority Punjabis & Sikhs being VARIS of Baba Nanak, also left the company of Bhai LALOO and joined (Political) business with rich “MALIK BAGHOOS”, those being political business platforms, as; Congress/ BJP/ Akali Dal & others.
Thus, ethically compromising political operators & operations in post 47' eras have succeeded in positioning a new model of "divide" in the society on "religious & linguistic" lines in new Punjab, in continuity of previous 47 divides- designed on just "Hindu-Muslim" by the then other state civilizations, technically those being the then foreign soils. The transition times & human life for the citizens always been difficult, whenever made to shift from one model of rule to another one. Those may be from the Kingship to democracy, the Kingship to communist, Colonial to Socialistic democratic, Democratic socialist now on the path of religious (un) democratic hegemony. Ordinarily there is always a time frame for settlement of Political, social or administrative criticalities and natives dream for good days after difficult days, but the story scripted by the founders for Indian Punjab & further limitation in vision of its Leaderships, virtually failed the natives by not delivering consistent times of peace & basic welfare for them!
Hindoostani rulers displayed mystical ignorance towards ethical values introduced between 1469- 1499- 1539 by Guru Nanak Sahib, who strongly endorsed logical vision of Bhagat Kabir Sahib, that; "Awwal allah noor upaya, kudrat ke sab bandey- Ek noor te sab jag upajya, koun bhalley koun mandey." The Indian system operators reintroduced a variety of restrictions one after the other on "Freedom of Mankind", technically applied on minorities and reinforced many rejected British colonial chapters. All these virtually defeated the very purpose of those who got MARTYRDOM on the path of FREEDOM STRUGGLES. Hindoostan in the eyes of Baba Nanak was very different than the one brought out surgically in 1947. Baba Nanak proudly addressed the land of his KARAMBHOOMI being Hindoostan & had no hesitation for protest before the Almighty -Creator, on atrocities of invader Babar, 'Eti mar pai kurlane - tai ki dard na aaya". But most unethical political entities, having captured political power on the created design 1947, now got permanent roots on Indian soil. Therefore, spirits of Baba Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh may be quite disturbed with the models of Governance controlled by just few entities. The individualistic conduct for most of them proved purchasable in modern political power structures. They surrendered the state rights and dramatized complaining later for high handedness of New Delhi! Thus their conduct in post Maharaja Ranjit Singh era proved working of them as mercenaries on certain price or with fake title recognitions, but has let down those Martyred for Principal & Cause of civilization.
The exploitation of Historic Gurudawaras by British Indian Punjab regime triggered many Reformist Sikh struggles between 1920 -1925, resulting in formation of consensus community platform being SGPC Nov 1918 & rested on 14 December 1920, which was later diluted against the Missionary agenda of Morcha dictator Srd Teja Singh Samundri and was notified under an Act wef 1 November 1925. Akali Dal was formed on 14 December 1920 as a task force of the SGPC. We today are standing on times for old one century conditions of Misuse of Gurudawaras? The roles unethically reversed in post 1947 era by Akali Dal controlling religious affairs and has hurt established Institutional values in them and desired to be be restored on the name of Baba Nanak! Most controllers of the management of Sikh Institutions; being SGPC/Akali Dal/ Akal Takhat in last one century also shadowed the socialistic reformist messages of Guru Era and created disproportionate religious illusions, contrary to Guru Lessons & promoted ritual commercial practices for realization of desired materialistic gifts of God or mystical salvation to be met with. Political & Religious Sikh leadership tactfully enjoying personal life by keeping community on over doze of religious opium. None understood then, neither now, how the leadership failed in none understanding of valued concept & application for basic guidelines enshrined in Sri Guru Granth Sahib, like “Pavan Guru- Panni Pitaa- Mata Dharat Mahaat"
Dharti- the motherly Earth, when religiously desired to be dealt like a Mother & protected accordingly”, then how "the MOTHER Earth" for the founder of faith Gurus and others, which had been inhabited for many centuries was agreed to be abandoned, and mover conspirators not made accountable for created miseries? The majority displaced was from Punjabi civilization; being Hindu/Muslim/Sikhs, who got removed from their respected mother lands from other side or this side of Punjab cultural Nation identity? Further meanings in “PANNI PITAA” not been protected in quality & its natural utility rights by the state Leaderships. The community lecture deliveries continue referring great number SIKH martyrdom in protection of Hindu faith wherein, the essence & meaning stood changed on the blunders made by modified Hindu_stan in 1947 &1984! The Sikh leadership is intellectually almost bank corrupt and without community welfare AGENDA for today, tomorrow –futures but misusing pain and high handedness encountered by common Sikhs for their personal-family political benefits. Despite Errors & Omissions, many SIKH Leaders & organizations are performing great job in welfare of the Global humanity but perhaps could not succeed in Punjab, due to unhealthy politics & complexities of Red Fort-New Delhi under patronage of certain purchasable of Sikh Leaderships.
While re composing narratives on the holiest, Gods own representative soul, being Guru Nanak Sahib, happens to be quite a difficult TASK in respect of unfolding even a friction of comprehensive revelations made. He was such a unique, who brought out narratives relevant on life for next many centuries. The positive, innovative & progressive values in his ideologies may have to be dealt on different platform but on remembrance, the operators of his faith platform being SGPC may have to honestly introspect their role on few criticalities, such as; Are we honestly honest towards understanding meanings of his message & genuine in carrying forward in the same spirit? Are we conducting life in pro humanity being TERAA – TERAA and not exploiting each other in competition for material richness! The materialistic display & superficial shines has made us to show off by: wasteful expenditures on un desirable gift of expensive Rumalas, Practice for chain of Akhand Paths, Gold gifting -plating of domes- like Mandirs, over Marbalization in Gurudwaras, Egoistic/ arrogance displays through separate Gurudwaras on cast categories, new trend on abnormal expenditures on FLORIST decorations, Egoistic Tallest Flag –Khanda installation, competitive sumptuous langar- Pakora /Tea etc. His holiness spirit may have blessed pooling resources for help to those undergoing distress crises for unpaid agriculture loan burdens/ help for medical treatments/ education for the wards of poor ones etc.
Most SGPC members now not being trusted and referred to be conducting life in an identical to as that of being old MASAND cultures. They may have to introspect for returning back to original value calendar taught by Guru Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh Sahib by rejoining; SANGAT of Bhai Lalloos….by discarding platform for MALIK BAHAGOOS…. The Community leaders are also not adequately re focusing message; NAA KOI HINDU –NAA MUSLIMAAN. All in the eyes of Baba NANAK & his faith followers are equal and any one asking SIKHS to HATE MUSLIMS or others religious faith followers are not believers in humanity & neither in basic teachings of Guru Nanak Sahib. Community leaders are required to ponder upon implications for many unfulfilled parts of Daily SIKH ARDAAS–PRAYERS, which are being conducted without corresponding ground action AGENDAS! On Birthday of Baba Nanak, purely Honest community intellectual Leadership Introspections are need of the hour-WHY Daily Aardas rituals practiced, from many thousands of Sikh Gurudwaras in memory of those Martyred & wishing general welfare of the community, could not STOP…..1947….June/Nov 1984, neither delivery of Justice to victim families-What REPOSITIONS required for practice of the basics “ Kirat Karō - Naam Japo - Vaṇḍ chakkō.
The Sikh Community Leadership on remembrance TIMES is required to have introspection on the rituals practiced while conducting with Sri Guru Granth Sahib, which is getting closest to the rituals applied by Vedic faith followers for idol worship, originally disapproved by Guru Nanak Sahib. The Master guidelines scripted in Sri Guru Granth Sahib are meant to be followed in actual life and not meant for just display submission as respect. The rich practice life in accordance with the Maser guide lines enshrined therein. The assurances given by Leaders are viable to be got met with MAGICAL dreams and through ARDAAS (rituals) and without time frame plan & methodologies to achieve them. The community leadership today otherwise is left with no other choice, except revisit & practice on history for repeat actions guided by selfless role model -icons like; family sacrifices by Guru Gobind Singh ji, unparalleled martyrdom by Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, his young child son, 740 companion Sikh soldiers.
Sikh civilization has knowledge for a centuries on Loyalties & Treacherous models of actors & families controlling Governances, those being under; Maharaja Ranjit Singh from 1799-1849, British Punjab-India 1850 to 1947 & Hindoostan democratic kingdoms from 1947 onwards & more complex FUTURES. Relevant Time frame may have to be composed collectively to bring back agenda on unfulfilled "PROMISES MADE WITH SIKHS", including practice of “Equality before Law”. Those referred if brought on agenda, may be most suitable tribute for remembrance- 550th, birth date of loving religiously socialistic leader- Baba Nanak ji. Anti humanity –anti Sikh actors of other India may continue preparing conspiracies in their political laboratories in consultations with few misguided Punjabis to bring out obstructionist regulations in Journey to the PRAYED & DREAMED - Kartarpur Sahib.... located across the man made borders in our neighbor & old brother country. Let Punjabis openly display they belief & practice ALL lessons of Baba Nanak including "Naa Koi Hindu – Naa Muslimaan" & all are children of ONE holly spirit- almighty with "Objectivity -Sarbaat daa bhalla".
