Shaheedi - Are there times when it is not worth it?
Ranjeet01 posted a topic in WHAT'S HAPPENING?I am starting this particular topic and it might ruffle some feathers, it might make people angry and I apologise if anyone takes offence. Guru Teg Bahadhur Ji , our 9th Guru was shaheeded in order to save Kashmiri Pandits. What was great about our Guru was that he sacrificed his life to prevent these people (of another religion) being forcibly converted to Islam. Now these people approached our Guru for his protection. Yet it is from these people that the likes of Allama Iqbal (national poet of Pakistan, whose own grandfather was Kashmiri hindu and apparently came up with the idea of Pakistan) and Nehru (another Kashmiri Pandit) helped to partition Punjab and displace our people from their homeland. Nehru also spawned Indira Gandhi who caused the pogroms of our people. These Kashmiri Pandits are no end of trouble for us Sikhs as they caused the sacrifice of our Guru and our people. Yet on the other hand the descendents of these people were booted out of the Kashmir Valley by the muslim population in 1989. Why did our Guru have to give up his life for these people, surely Shaheedi was not worthwhile in this instance?
