Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim pardoned by Akal Takhat-a conspiracy against Sikh nation

Baba Ram Rahim copying Guru ji
Gurmeet Ram Rahim copying 10th master Guru Gobind Singh ji, preparing Amrit and wearimg almost similar attire to shoow his supremacy.
It appears if it’s the first settelment (political decision) taken by newly appointed Chief Secretary of SGPC, Harcharan Singh who is allegedly a RSS activist. Jathdars played role of puppet and stamped it to give their approval.
Because in viewing the coming assembly elections in Punjab in 2017, a plan is prepared to pardon and settle down all controversies with rival groups and Deras in Punjab so that in lieu of this relaxation, they may support Shiromani Akal Dal Badal in Punjab.
Sikh Panth may face humiliation but Akali dal Badal must rule in Punjab.
Gurmeet Ram Rahim is alleged to rape and kill woman disciples of his Dera and then the journalist who exposed him, he kille his driver also who leaked information about him. Other then this he allegedly copied 10th master by wearing similar attire and preparing seven beloved, (two more then Guru). this way he tried his supremacy upon Guru Gobind Singh ji.
Then how could these paid employees9Jathedars of all five Takhats)  give a clean chit to chief of Dera/cult Saccha Sauda?
Order by Akal Takhat on Pardoning Gurmeet Ram Rahim
 Religious order issued by Jathedar Sri Akal Takhat sahib ji on 25th Sep. 2015 to pardon Gurmeet Ram Rahim.
This is jeopardize with Sikh panth by its own administrators whom the Sikh history shall always put in question box and place them the insider organizers of treason against khalsa panth.
Apology by Sant Gurmeet Ram Rahim singh;
In his apology he states that he never compares himself with any saint or paigambar but while signing the letter he calls himself a Saint which proves his malintention.
He misguides again.

Apology by Gurmeet ram Rahim

 Apology by Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim sent to Sri Akal Takhat Sahib.

I feel ashamed of them and bow my head in due respect to those martyres who laid down their lives in struggle against this bullshit gurmeet ram rahim. I am sure despite clean chit to this bgot, no Sikh will follow this order of Akal Takhat.


I start from myself and give a call to boycott Jathedar Gurbachan Singh..
See more reports about promoter of falsehood the Dera Cheif;
The Baba and his ongoings;

The Baba Ram Rahim Singh is the present Guru of the sect known as Dera Saccha Sauda at Hissar in Haryana. This Dera was set by Shah Satnam Singh who declared Gurmeet Singh alias Baba Ram Rahim Singh as heir of his sect.

In May 2007, this Baba robed himself alike 10th Sikh Guru Gobind Singh ji and appeared in his disciples. He acted in the same manner to baptize his followers like earlier done by Guru Gobind Singh ji. This act of him up roared Sikhs whose sentiments were hurt by his such mean act of copying the holy Guru.

This controversy caused violence in Sikhs and the followers of Baba.The whole northern India was on unrest and disturbed continuously for six days, in this violence which broke-out at several places, one Sikh person was killed by his bodyguards and over a hundred were wounded.

Though the public relations officer of the sect Saccha Sauda apologized in a press release soon after on 20th May and repeatedly on 27th May but the apology was made in a manner to show as they were obliging Sikhs which was immediealy rejected by Akal-Takht, the highest temporal seat of Sikhs.

A criminal case was registered against Baba Ram Rahim Singh in Bathinda, where the clashes were started on behest of Baba on 20th May and arrest warrant against him were issued to arrest him by ACJM of Bathinda (Punjab).

The proceedings against Baba were not stopped here;

The case by CBI was on snail’s race but the High court of Haryana and Punjab ordered CBI to submit it’s report before 31st Aug 07. He got interim bail in Oct. 07 in murder & rape case by special court of CBI.

The disclosure of rape of a female disciple was brought in notice of public by a news published in a news paper ‘PURA SACH’, in which the allegations were made by an anonymous letter written to the President, Prime Minister,Chief Ministers of Haryana and Punjab, Judges of high courts of Haryana and Punjab, Supreme court, DGP of Haryana by a female disciple that she and about 50 other females disciples were raped by Baba Ram Rahim Singh in premises of Dera Saccha Sauda, Hissar.

Soon after this news was published the journalist Ram Chandra Chatrapati was killed. The case was handed over to CBI,j ust by that time another follower of the Dera, Ranjit Singh was also killed. This aroused the suspense and the father of the deceased clearly raised his finger upon Baba Ram Rahim. He directly alleged him of murdering his son, CBI included this murder case also in it’s list.CBI did not give any clean chit to Baba means that they consider him guilty and have some proves against Baba.

A statement of Khatta Singh, (the driver of Baba Ram Rahim Siangh)was recorded by a hidden camera, by the team of Tahalka and India TV in a sting operation for CBI which proves the allegations made by the female devotee and confirms the murders with the consent of Baba’s in the case.

After one year again on 20th June 08, one more Sikh devotee was killed in Bombay (Mumbai), in shoot out by body-guards of Baba, which paralyzed the normal life in Bombay and surrounding areas.

Last year Akal Takhat had called for the social boycott of Dera chief and his followers after the said incidents stated above.

So far, neither Baba is given any clean chit in any case of rape, murder, conspiracy, provocation of riots nor any verdict to sentence him to prison is delivered. Sikhs are generally denied of justice and their rights in this free India and their enemies are allowed to spit venom against Sikh religion by giving protection to move scotfree under cover of commandos. If complains than the Sikhs faces the discrimination and the youth are tortured to death in democratic India.

Civil Judge of Patiala, Punjab issues summons to Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji

Ramandeep Neetu, Civil Judge Patiala

With reference to my post on issuing summons to Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji by civil judge (Ramandeep Neetu seen above in picture) in Patiala seems to me her ignorance.

How Indian Courts issue orders mockingly is evident from this post.
——————————————————-

Especially Sikhs which are generally attracted towards Saadhus or Saints. They (Sikhs) feel honored serving, providing food etc. to Saadhus. Due to this politeness and kind heartedness, when Sant Jaimal singh visited Beas and stayed outskirts of village to meditate, the villagers gathered and brought food , Lassi , Milk etc. in his service. Sant Jaimal Singh got pleased and told the villagers that he wanted to build a Gurudwara in the village and thus needs some land. The villagers felt honored by his decision and the Nabardaar/President of village Beas agreed to provide land for the Gurudwara but villagers were intelligent. How could they trust a stranger so they insisted to register the land in the name of Sri Guru Granth Saheb Ji.
 
The name of the heads of village Bal saraan who registered this land in the name of Guru Granth Sahab ji were–Lalu Namabardaar, Mehtaab Singh, Bhan Singh, Bur Singh, Sher Singh and Gurditt Singh ji. This was the first instance of its kind where the Registry of any piece of land was to be named after the Holy book/which was bestowed as Guru of Sikh religion by 10th Guru Gobind Singh ji and which guides the Sikhs in their spiritual and materialistic needs in this world as there is no living person as Guru in Sikh religion.
British agreed to transfer the land in the name of Guru Granth Sahab ji, Registry no. 254, dated 14 June 1897.( Measures 11 Kanal, 16 Marla)The land was given to Baba Jaimal singh to build the Gurudwara in villaege. It is mentioned in registry. “Guru Granth Sahab wakiyaa dharamsala muntjim baa-eh-tamaam Jaimal Simgh saadh jatt. The land could never be transferred to any living person and still this land which is in use by the sect is the property of Guru Granth Sahib ji (or to say, of the Sikh religion).
 
The remark in verification of ‘INTKAAL’ is—Baba Jaimal Singh shall have no right to sell or mortgage, this will always be used as Dharmsala (Gurudwara).
It shows the British had already accepted status of Sri Guru Granth sahib ji as Juristic person and the authority to register a land or property in it’s name was thus given. The registry of Dera Beas in the name of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is a landmark decision set by British.

In a judgment entitled Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee Amritsar v. Som Nath Dass and others delivered on March 29, 2000, the Supreme Court of India has held that Sri Guru Granth Sahib is a juristic person.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji ik juristic person ne par lod pain te Gurudware de parbandhak ohna wallon Court vich hazar honge;

According to the Supreme Court, “A legal person is any entity other than human being to which law attributes personality” Further, “the very words ‘Juristic Person’ connote recognition of an entity to be in law a person which otherwise it is not. In other words, it is not an individual natural person but an artificially created person which is to be recognized in law as such” .

The highest court held that no endowment or juristic person depends on the appointment of a manager. It may be proper or advisable to appoint such a manager while making any endowment but in its absence, it may be done either by trustees or courts in accordance with law. Mere absence of a manager does not negative the existence of a juristic person…. Once endowment is made, it is final and irrevocable. It is onerous duty of the persons entrusted with such endowment, to carry out the objectives of this entrustment. They may appoint a manager in the absence of any indication in the trust or get it appointed through court. So if entrustment is to any juristic person, mere absence of a manager would not negate the existence of a juristic person.

The majority in the High Court had accepted all these arguments of the respondents. The Supreme Court, while allowing the appeal, observed that the High Court committed a serious mistake of law in holding that Guru Granth Sahib was not a juristic person and in allowing the claim over this property in favour of the respondents. The hon’ble judges of the Supreme Court said, “In this background and on over all considerations we have no hesitation to hold that GGS is a juristic person… We unhesitatingly hold Guru Granth Sahib to be a “Juristic Person”..

See the pages of the said judgement where its clearly mentioned that SGGS is a juristic person, land/property can be registered in it’s name but can’t be summoned in Court.

In such a case the Manager or head of committee shall appear in Court.

Battle of Saragarhi on 12th Sep. 1897

Battle of Saragarhi, the saga of 21 Sikhs faced off against 10,000 Afridi Pathans on 12th Sep. 1897.

This ‘Kohinoor’ of the Sikh Regiment is one of the ten most famous battles of the world. Even to this date, this battle forms part of the school curriculum .

News of the event shot around the world as demonstrated by this article in this Australian newspaper (one of many containing news of this battle). Part 1 of 2 (see next image for complete article).

Since Saragarhi was a communications post, almost the entire battle was broadcast in real time by its signal man, Sardar Gurmukh Singh, which is why we today know what exactly happened there when 21 faced off against 10,000.

Saragadhi map

On the Samana Range of the Hindu Kush mountains in Pakistan, the British Army built a small communications post at Saragarhi, to be housed by an equally small contingent of soldiers. The region had always been a troubled area, and during the last quarter of the 19th century, British India’s hold on the North West Frontier was tenuous. In fact, several expeditions had been sent to maintain control and suppress rebellion in the region in the years immediately preceding the Saragarhi battle.

12003319_784994578290127_5185362179731584760_n

Saragarhi, itself, was little more than a small block house and a signaling tower. It was constructed to enable communications between Fort Lockhart and Fort Gulistan, two more significant British posts situated on either side of Saragarhi, albeit several miles apart.

Equipped with a heliograph, Saragarhi transmitted messages by using flashes of sunlight, sent much like telegraphic communication (read: Morse code). The flashes themselves were made by either pivoting a mirror or interrupting a beam of light.

The instrument used to communicate between Saragarhi and Fort Gulistan.

In the summer of 1897, things were getting tense in the region, and the British had only recently ended an uprising of Pashtun tribesmen in the Malakand region (known later as the Siege of Malakand) in early August. By the end of the month, there was a general uprising of Afghans, and by the beginning of September, Pashtuns were actively attempting to capture British Army positions, including attacks on Fort Gulistan on September 3 and September 9.

To combat the Pashtun offenses, troops were sent from Fort Lockhart to reinforce Fort Gulistan, and after the battle on the 9th, on their return trip, a few soldiers were left to reinforce the small detachment at Saragarhi. All of the 21 soldiers remaining at Saragarhi were members of the 36th Sikh Regiment of the British Army, and the contingent was led by Havildar Ishar Singh.

On 12th Sept. 1897, 21 Sikh soldiers of 36th Sikh Regiment were beseized by ten thousand Afreedi Pathans (who claims to be the descendants of mighty king Faridun of Persia) at Saragarhi near fort Lockhart, distt. Kohat of N W F Province (now in Pakistan). The fierce battle known by the natives as ‘Teera battle’ or Saragarhi battle was fought on  12th Sep. 1897 under the command of havildar Ishaer Singh who caused maximum casualities of the invaders.

At the fag end of the battle only Havildar Isher Singh was left alone with twenty bodies of his brave fellow fighters Amritdhari Gursikh soldiers lying all around him. Unfrustrated by the attack of huge enemy, the  lone soldier fought  the battle for hours in the spirit of  Chardi-kalaa and showing exemplary courage unparallel in the history of wars, continued firing and fighting till the last drop of blood kept him alive.

He and twenty of his other brave  Sikh soldiers practically proved in the battlefield the prophetic pronouncement of Guru Gobind Singh that’ Sava lakh se ek laraoon, Tabhai Gobind Singh naam kahaoon’, All these twenty one Sikh soldiers who laid down their lives heroically were awarded the highest gallantry award —— the INDIAN ORDER OF MERITT (IOM) equalent to existing PARAM VEER CHAKRA for their supreme valor and sacrifices by British govt. The highest gallantry awards were given on that day to 21 Sikh soldiers which were the highest in strength awarded for any single day anywhere in world.

11998867_784995011623417_9183577916595335427_n

 At the end the of Chief Whip’s speech the entire parliament gave a rousing standing ovation to the gallant 21, as their names were called out aloud in a symbolic roll call.

When the news of that peerless sacrifice reached England, all the members of the British Parliament in their special session paid glowing tributes to the most daring Sikh soldiers and two minutes silence was observed in their sweet memoryThe members of the house while eulogizing the remarkable acts of bravery of the brave Sikh soldiers of Saragarhi battle said, “the English as well as Indian subjects are proud of 36th Sikh Regiment and it is no exaggeration to record that the armed forces which posses valiant Sikhs can not face defeat in any war.”

         The Epic of Saragarhi 12th September 1897

 

“Fighting against overwhelming numbers, they all died at their posts, with unflinching loyalty and devotion to their oath while upholding to the very last, the traditional bravery of the Sikh nation”.  (The Commander-in-Chief, India).

This was one of the most heroic actions in recorded history fought by a small detachment of 21 jawans of the 36th Sikh (since redesignated as the 4th Battalion of the Sikh Regiment of the Indian Army). The action was fought at Saragarhi in North West Frontier Province, now in Pakistan and close to the Afghanistan border. Saragarhi was a small army post, a small square stone blockhouse built on a high ridge called the Samana Ridge.

The post provided vital communication between Fort Lockhart and Fort Gulistan on either side of the Saragarhi post.  One hundred and twenty-one jawans of the 36th Sikhs were in Fort Lockhart and 175 in Fort Gulistan at the time. You need to remember that communication those days was by visual signalling equipment.

Shortly after the attack began, Gurmukh Singh signaled for aid to Lieutenant Colonel John Haughton at Fort Lockhart, but he was told that immediate help was unavailable. Undeterred, the Sikh soldiers committed to fighting to the last to prevent the encroaching Pashtuns from reaching the other forts.

The first man injured was Bhagwan Singh, and sometime after, the invaders broke part of the wall of the picket. Offers were made to the Sikhs in exchange for surrender, but they were refused. The Sikhs were trying to buy as much time as possible for the other forts to be reinforced, and were willing to pay for that time with their lives. After two unsuccessful attempts at the gates, the Pashtun forces eventually breached the wall. Fierce hand-to-hand fighting ensued.

Shortly before the end, Ishar Singh ordered his men to retreat even further while he remained behind in defense. He, too, fell, during that charge, as did all of the remaining soldiers except for the heliograph operator, Gurmukh Singh. Gurmukh was the last to die, after being burned to death when the Pashtuns set fire to the post. He is reported to have repeatedly yelled until the end, the Sikh battle cry, “Bole So Nihal, Sat Sri Akal,” meaning “Shout aloud in ecstasy! True is the great Timeless One.”

Although no Sikh survived the battle, their sacrifice sufficiently delayed the Pashtuns such that reinforcements were able to arrive at the Pashtuns’ ultimate target, Fort Gulistan, in time to stop its fall.

In addition to the 21 Sikh dead, reports of Pashtun losses range from between 180 and 600, though it’s difficult to discern the true number accurately. That said, it was probably at least 180 as that is what the Pashtuns themselves later reported as their losses in that battle.

It is not surprising that following epics like the battle of Saragarhi and the earlier Anglo-Sikh wars, the gallantry of the Sikh battalions became legendary. The military fame of the Sikhs spread worldwide. The Sikh units of the Indian army became role models for others. They provided a source of inspiration for others while convincing the British commanders that soldiers from the Indian subcontinent could stand their ground against the best in the world. It is with this background that we need to assess the contribution of the Sikhs to the two World Wars fought for the freedom of mankind. A contribution, which is sometimes forgotten by the politicians or overlooked by the military historians.

Kaaba turned wherever the Guru Nanak’s feet were turned

Dr. Zakir Naik once questioned and objected on turning of Kaaba by Guru Nanak ji. (Many others also object and say that non Muslims could never enter Mecca but they forget in 16th century, it was a desrted town and Guru Nanak ji was in a Muslim dress.

I may clear his doubts and all other curios readers that Kaaba has also turned thrice not only once before visit of Guru Nanak ji.

When Guru Nanak was sleeping near Kaaba, his feet were in direction to Kaaba. The attendents when noticed, they informed Qazi Rukunudin.

He came there and pushed a kick in waste of Baba Nanak and asked, “who is this infidel (Kafir) sleeping by keeping his feet towards god’s home?

At this the Guru replied, “I am an old man and tired. I do not know which side Alalh lives, kindly turn feet where Allah doesn’t reside.”

At this the Qazi hold his feet and turned his body but he was surprized to see that in whichever direction he turned feet of guru, the Kaaba was also turned.

His sixth sense immediately warned him that this man is no ordinary person. And then he bowed before Guru Nanak.

Many Muslims take offense with the reference that Jeevan (Qazi Rukunudin) saw the Kaaba move as he moved Guru Nanak’s feet to point them in a direction away from Kaaba. They claim that this could not have happened.

However, there are many famous references in Islam which talk about the Kaaba moving.

1*****Hazrat Iban writes in his book Fatuhat Makih that he saw the Kaaba rise to crush him when he thought inappropriate thoughts about the Kaaba during the Hajj (Israr Shariat, part 2, page 74)

2*****Rabia, when passing through a forest on her way to the Hajj for the second time, saw the Kaaba coming towards her to welcome her. Rabia said, I was hoping to see God. I have no need for God’s house. If he were to walk towards me a length of a hand, I will advance a yard towards him. What do I do with the Kaaba? This doesn’t please me.

3*****Hazrat Ibrahim Azam went to Mecca, and was surprised to see the Kaaba missing. He thought his eyesight was failing him. He heard a voice which said, “there is nothing wrong with your eyesight, the Kaaba has gone to welcome a lady who is too feeble to walk to the Hajj” (Tazkiratul Awliayah, page 62).

Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, who embraced Sikh religion and was given a new name GURBAKSH SINGH

बाबा बन्दा सिंह बहादुर उर्फ़ गुरबक्श सिंह;

Banda Singh Bahadur
मैं माधो दास बैरागी का जीवन वृत्तांत तो नहीं लिख रहा हूँ लेकिन कुछ बहुमूल्य जानकारी अवश्य देना चाहूंगा क्योंकि कटटर हिन्दू संगठन उनके बारे में भ्रामक जानकारी देते हैं!
तो सबसे पहले यह जान लीजिये कि………..
१)- सिख धर्म में प्रवेश करने के लिए अमृत ग्रहण करना अति आवश्यक होता है, परन्तु जो लोग किसी सिख घर में पैदा होते हैं, वे अपने जीवन में कभी भी, कहीं भी अमृत ग्रहण करके गुरु गोबिंद सिंह जी के बेटे होने का गौरव हासिल करते हैं!
२)- सिख धर्म में वैराग या सन्यास को कोई महत्व नहीं दिया गया है, हर व्यक्ति को गृहस्थ जीवन में रहते हुए ही ईश्वर प्राप्ति के लिए एक अकाल पुरख वाहेगुरु के नाम जपने का निर्देश दिया गया है!

तो बन्दा सिंह बहादुर उर्फ़ माधो दास कटरा, जम्मू के नज़दीक रियासी नामक स्थान का रहने वाला राजपूत था! एक बार शिकार करते हुए इसने एक हिरणी पर वाण चलाया, हिरणी घायल हुई गिर पड़ी और उसके पेट से दो नवजात शिशु भी बाहर गिर पड़े और सभी काल कवलित हुए!
यह ह्रदय विदारक दृश्य देखकर इस राजपूत ने धनुष वहीँ रख दिया और सन्यास ग्रहण किया! अनेकों स्थानों का भ्रमण करते हुए और तांत्रिक शिक्षाओं को भी ग्रहण कर यह नांदेड नामक स्थान पर जा पहुंचा और यहाँ इसने अपना एक आश्रम स्थापित किया!
कहा जाता है कि यह हवा में उड़ता था और इसके पास एक भारी पलंग था! यदि कोई सन्यासी या गुरु इसके आश्रम में आ जाता था तो यह उसको उस पलंग पर विश्राम करने को कह स्वयं आश्रम से बाहर चला जाता था !
इस पलंग के चारों पायों पर जिन्न-भूतों के चारों सम्राट जो इसके कैदी थे, उनको यह कार्य सौंपा गया था कि जब इस पलंग पर विश्राम करने वाला व्यक्ति सो जाये तो ये चारों उस पलंग को उल्टा कर देते था!
इस तरह यह उन सन्यासियों पर व्यंग कर उनका उपहास उडाता था!
जब सिख धर्म के दसवें गुरु-गुरु गोबिंद सिंह जी अपनी दक्षिण की यात्रा पर थे तो वे भी इसके आश्रम में जा पहुंचे! यह उस समय अपने आश्रम में नहीं था! इसके शिष्यों ने भी अपने गुरु के बताये नियमों के अनुसार गुरु जी को भी पलंग पर विश्राम करने को कहा!
इन चारों भूतों के सम्राटों ने भी गुरु के पलंग को उलटाने की चेष्टा की, लेकिन गुरु जी तो स्वयं ईश्वर के अवतार थे, वे कहां गुरु जी को गिरा सकते थे? वे अपने प्रयत्नों में सफल नहीं हुए!
उधर गुरु जी के शिष्यों ने देखा कि आश्रम में भोजन पकाया जा रहा है तो वे भोजन की प्रतीक्षा करने लगे लेकिन बहुत अधिक देर तक भी जब भोजन नहीं मिला तो उन्होंने पूछताछ शुरू की तो आश्रम में उपस्थित चेलों ने कहा कि जब तक उनका गुरु भोजन ग्रहण नहीं करता, बाकि का भोजन नहीं परोसा जा सकता!
इस पर गुरु जी के सिख सैनिकों को रोष उतपन्न हुआ और उन्होंने ने देखा कि आश्रम में बहुत से बकरे घूम रहे थे जिन्हें बलि हेतु लाया गया था, यह देखकर उन्होंने कुछ बकरे पकडे और उनका काम तमाम कर दिया, उन्हें पकाया और खाया!
यह देखकर आश्रम के शिष्यों ने जंगल का रुख किया, अपने गुरु माधो दास की तलाश की और सब वृत्तांत उन्हें कह सुनाया कि किस तरह एक शस्त्रधारी फ़ौज़ ने आश्रम में उत्पात मचाया है और आश्रम के बकरे खा कर उनकी हड्डियां और खाल वहीँ फ़ेंक दी है!
यह सुनकर माधोदास का खून गर्म हो गया और वह तत्काल ही वायु मार्ग से आश्रम जा पहुंचा तो जो कुछ उसके शिष्यों ने बताया था, देखकर वह भौंचक्का रह गया!
उसने पूछा कि इनका सरदार कौन है, तो वहां उपस्थित अन्य चेलों ने कहा कि वे भीतर पलंग पर विश्राम कर रहे हैं!

माधो दास सीधे उस कमरे में गया तो देखा कि एक अति सुंदर, तेजस्वी, शस्त्रधारी उस पलंग पर सो रहा था! वहअपने कैदी भूतों के सम्राटों पर गुस्सा होने लगा कि उन्होंने इसको पलंग पर क्यों सोने दिया और कि उन्होंने पलंग को उलटाया क्यों नहीं?

तब उन्होंने जवाब दिया कि उन सबने अपने प्रयत्न किये लेकिन इस शख्स के आगे उनकी सब शक्तियां असमर्थ हो गईं! अत: यदि उसके पास कोई और सामर्थ्य है तो वह स्वयं प्रयत्न कर ले, उनके अपने बस में इस शख्स को नुकसान पहुँचाने की ताक़त नहीं है!

यह सुनकर माधोदास आश्चर्यचकित भी हुआ और जान गया कि पलंग पर सोने वाला महापुरुष कोई साधारण व्यक्ति नहीं, इसके शस्त्र और सैनिकों की वेशभूषा बताती हैं कि यह अवशय सिखों के गुरु गोबिंद सिंह जी होंगे!

अभी वह विचार मग्न खड़ा था कि गुरु जी की आँख खुल गई, इस खड़े देखकर उन्होंने पूछा कि ‘कौन हो तुम’?

प्रत्युत्तर में माधोदास ने जवाब दिया’ जी आप का बन्दा अर्थ गुलाम’!

यह सुनकर गुरु जी कहा कि’ यदि बन्दा (इंसान) है तो इंसानों वाले भले काम कर! इन बेचारों को क्यों बंदी बना रखा है’?

यह सुनकर माधोदास ने तुरंत ही जिन्न-भूतों के चारों सम्राटों (बीर नर सिंह, बीर नाहर सिंह, बीर क्षेत्रपाल और पीर सुलेमान) को तुरंत रिहा कर दिया!

तब गुरु जी ने उसको बताया कि इस समय देश को मुगल आतताइयों से हिन्दू धर्म की रक्षा के लिए शस्त्रधारियों की आवश्यकता है न कि सन्यासियों की, तुम एक क्षत्रिय हो और क्षत्रिय का पहला धर्म ही देश, धर्म, स्त्रियों और अबलाओं को बचाने का होता है और तुम अपने क्षत्रिय कर्म से भागकर सन्यासियों का वेश धारण किये बैठे हो? मुझे देखो, मैंने धर्म की खातिर अपने पिता, माता, चारों पुत्रों का बलिदान दे कर भी शस्त्र हाथ में पकड़ धर्म की रक्षा हेतु खड़ा हूँ और तुम हो कि शस्त्र त्याग दिए हैं?

यह वीरता पूर्ण वचन सुन कर माधोदास तुरंत गुरु के चरणों में गिर पड़ा और गुरु का शिष्य बनने की इच्छा जाहिर की ! गुरु जी ने उसकी इच्छा को देखते हुए उसे अमृत दान दिया, शस्त्र दिए और उसे सिख धर्म में शामिल कर परंपरा अनुसार एक नया नाम गुरबक्श सिंह से सुसज्जित किया!
लेकिन इतिहास में वह बंदा सिंह बहादुर के नाम से ही जाना गया!

अक्टूबर १७०८ में ही बन्दा बहदुर को गुरु जी ने अपने कुछ विश्वस्त सिख सैनिकों के साथ पंजाब रवाना किया, उसको निम्न वस्तुएं दी गईं जिससे सिख क़ौम उसपर विश्वास करके सहयोग करे;

१)- गुरु जी द्वारा सिख संगतों के नाम पैगाम (हुकमनामा),
२)- गुरु जी के अपने पांच विशिष्ट तीर,
३)- दो धारी तलवार जिसे खंडा भी कहा जाता है,
४)- और एक बड़ा नगाड़ा !
नोट: इन तीरों की विशिष्टता थी और निर्देश था कि इन्हें अति विपत्ति में ही प्रयोग किया जाये, इनके प्रयोग करने पर शहीद सिख सैनिकों की मदद आँधी, तूफ़ान, घनघोर वृषा आदि के रूप में होती जिससे दुश्मन को कुछ दिखाई नहीं देता और यह तबाही मचाते हुए सुरक्षित निकल सकता था!

इनके अतिरिक्त गुरु जी ने इस के साथ अपने पांच परम प्रिय सिख, इसके सलाहकार के रूप में इसके साथ भेजे, जिनके नाम हैं;
१)- भाई दया सिंह जी,
२)- भाई बिनोद सिंह जी,
३)- भाई काहन सिंह जी,
४)- भाई बिजय सिंह जी एवं,
५)- भाई रण सिंह जी!

गुरु जी का सिखों के नाम हुक्मनामे के बिना बंदा सिंह को पंजाब में सिखों का सहयोग नहीं मिलता, और गुरु जी के परम सहयोगियों के साथ न होने की दशा में पंजाब में सिख इस पर विश्वास कदापि नहीं करते अत: अकेला बन्दा कुछ नहीं कर सकता था!

बंदा की सफलता उसकी अपनी नहीं अपितु सिख क़ौम की सफलता थी, उसके सहयोग में चारों तरफ से सिख आ पहुंचे थे क्योंकि उसकी मदद करने के लिए सिखों को उनके गुरु के द्वारा पैगाम या हुक्मनामा जो भेजा गया था!

अत; बन्दा सिंह बहादुर गुरु का लाडला सिख कहलाया न कि कोई वैरागी जैसे इसे आजकल  मिथ्या  रूप से प्रचारित किया जा रहा है! यह वैरागी अवश्य था लेकिन गुरु गोबिंद सिंह जी के संपर्क में आने से पहले ! बाद में गुरु जी का शिष्य बन जाने और अमृत ग्रहण कर लेने पर यह वैरागी नहीं अपितु सिख सैनिक बन गया था!
