The Disaster/Catastrophe


Recommended Posts

heres what i pulled off the net:

noun

  1. ਸੰਕਟ (m)
  2. ਗਜਬ (m)
  3. ਮੁਸੀਬਤ (f)
  4. ਤੁਫਾਨ (m)
  5. ਕਿਆਮਤ (f)
  6. ਬਰਬਾਦੀ (f)
  7. ਆਫ਼ਤ (f)
  8. ਬਿਪਤਾ (f)

Synonyms

calamity, cataclysm, catastrophe, tragedy

im thinking that maha-barbadi, the "great disaster" would be more apt.

Your right many Sikhs especially those raised in westernized environments are quick to jump or support other causes like Palestinians, homosexuals, feminist extremist leftest liberal polices, etc but they forget their own community's national causes. They do not realise the disaster the Sikh nation has faced since 1947 thanks to the British establishment similarly the Palestinians suffered the same problem at the hands of the British meddling in the middle eastern affairs giving their land to the illegal and immoral master criminal Rothschild banking Zionist funded Jewish state of Israel.

We should dedicate august as Sikh national disaster awareness month just like the black community has a month dedicated to giving awareness to their community about the slavery of their people.

tbh a month may be too ambitious at this stage, but we need to start somewhere. The awareness of partition should start from the beginning of JUly at the latest, so to get as much awareness as possible so that when the 2 days in question arrive, we have as many Sikh people as possible remembering them for the right reasons, and not for the indian and pakistani reasons.

Also why cant this be classified as a Ghallughara? the amount of Sikhs that died in partition was far more than that died in Chhotta and Wadda Ghallughara.

Im beginnning to think that there should be some kind of awareness of this episode on the lines of a "Holocaust."

Because you'd get people piping up that Sikhs were also responsible for some of the killings.

I'd stick to the religious angle in terms of having our holy places taken away from us. When you start getting into 'who killed who' and 'how many died' etc., you could end up with a situation where Sikhs come off looking quite bad.

I agree Sikhs armed jatha's did commit some revenge killings after much provocative killings and desecration's of holy places by punjabi & kashmiri muslim mobs and pathan tribal lashkar's.

It would be best to focus on how much Sikhs have lost since the British establishment in its lack of wisdom decided to divide the punjab and create the entities of india and pakistan. The muslims on the whole too are not happy what they got due to the military middling of the British, they lost their beloved khalifa in 1924.

Weren't those soldiers vs soldiers and could be classified under the rules of war? You tell me brother as I'm not too hot on that particular part of history. Weren't those armed conflicts involving forces from both sides?

Surely what happened in 1947 was concerning civilians? Also, time has a habit of lessening the effect of certain acts. People roll their eyes when you talk about deaths of Sikhs at the hands of the Mughals. They start saying "That was ages ago - medieval times..." as if that matters. A death is a death no matter when it happened or how long ago. On a side note I wonder if the Jewish population will be as forgiving when the events of the Holocaust are 100 or 200 years old. A certain part of me says that particular tragedy will never be allowed to diminish.

Look, I'm not saying Sikhs weren't killed by bloodthirsty mobs of Muslims who wanted us out of "their" Pakistan, but I'm pretty sure Sikhs also did the same to other groups of people.

i meant to press "quote" rather than like this, so dont get confused.

it was soldiers of the moghals vs sikh civilians in the 1st 2 ghallugahras. in 1947, the police, military and civilians on both sides were involved in killing the other communities. But i dont understand why if the Sikhs killed muslims, the whole event cant be classed as a ghallughara.

Killing aside, we lost so much pof our religious heritage, not to mention the best lands, businesses, factories, and shops.

I stand corrected. I can just see the inevitable cries from the "other side". Not that it should lessen our loss as Sikhs, but you know what I mean and you know how these things work.

The best angle to approach this situation from is what you mentioned above.

Brothers and sister, today is the day 1 of the Great Disaster, whereby 40% of the Sikh people suddenly became foreigners and unwanted in their ancestral homes and lands. The day where someone decided, the Sikhs will have to leave their beloved places of religion and history.

Remember it, and spread it around.

We the Sikh nation have gone through a similiar "naqba" in 1947 when we were forced from west panjab, leaving over historical 180 gurdwaras to decay. This is the naqba of the Sikhs, and the whole world knows about the palestinians remembering the naqba, but we have even forgotten our naqba, even in my local gurdwara, they have never said anything about it , as far as i can remember.

We should be looking at remembering 14th August(pakistan independence day) and 15th august (indian independence day) as our own naqba, and letting firstly our people know, and secondly the world know, about it.

The closest panjabi word i could find for disaster at the moment is :

musibat, shaamat, bad naseebi or afat. lets have your input brothers and sister.

We have to educate the Sikhs about this event.

Thanks for the reminder to Sangat Chatanga Veer. The 1947 Pakistani Genocide of Sikhs in which 25% of our people were killed should never be forgotten. America was unhappy about 9/11 but imagine if the Muslims killed 80 million Americans today, only then would that give a sense of the brutal and unimaginable level of Genocide the Punjabi Muslims inflicted upon Sikhs in 1947.

Because you'd get people piping up that Sikhs were also responsible for some of the killings.

I'd stick to the religious angle in terms of having our holy places taken away from us. When you start getting into 'who killed who' and 'how many died' etc., you could end up with a situation where Sikhs come off looking quite bad.

VanHel Singh Veer, the Sikhs were a one third minority in Majha, Malwa and Doaba. The Muslims were just as populous in these areas and had aims to include all of Punjab within Pakistan. When Muslims started to try ethnically cleanse Sikhs out of Amritsar (where there were more Muslims than Sikhs) only then did Sikhs start to defend themselves. In a war, there are innocent casualties on all sides but in the 1947 Pakistani Genocide of Sikhs one in four of our people in Pakistan were killed. One in twenty Muslims in east Punjab lost their lives, of whom the majority were rich so-called upper-caste Muslim Zamindar jihadi's who had attempted to lead the ethnic cleansing of Sikhs out of Indian Punjab. That is not to deny the suffering of around one in forty Punjabi Muslims who perhaps were not linked to the madness (but who had nevertheless voted for the inclusion of all Punjab under Muslim rule). Quite clearly, Sikhs suffered more than ten times as much pro-rata casualties as the Muslims.

As we see in the 2nd World War, innocent Germans also died but the 25% of Sikh population that was killed in Pakistan is one of the worst holocausts in World History. The equivalent of if 80 million Americans were killed by Muslims today.

The way we should commemorate the 1947 Pakistani Genocide of Sikhs is by increasing our own efforts towards the Sikh Panth's modern Dharam Yudh against drugs, sharaab, biraderi, abortion of females, cancer and illiteracy.
