When Karakoos would eat at a Villagers House

Recommended Posts

in our village bhai amarjeet singh billa stayed one night with his friends he was lt general of klf, though our village is next to his (begowal) and he even stayed in our farms something must have been going on tht night that they slept at ours, my grandpa told about how they were strict in sikhi asool, even when they ate they made sure nothing was jooth and when their water was poured they didnt want the jug of water to touch their glasses, they were strict about things....when they slept they were all in 1 room and had locked door from inside, that night the village was surrounded (not sure which forces of india surrounded the village) but my grandpa told the singhs and they told him not to worry and they would deal with it, they soon left without anyone knowing, the forces didnt find them either.

anyway ppl implying that singhs who went to ppls houses for shelter and food are police agents etc are totally wrong, for example bha billa came to ours and stayed in our kehta for periods of times ( 1 singh who with bhai billa for 3 seperate periods talks about the loving nature and chardi kala of these singhs) dont infer all khadkus to be bad if they go to people houses, yes there were some police cats doing the same and there were even cops doing same with bhai billa, robbing people on his name.

in begowal there was a older singh known as gyani who lived with his son, the mother had passed away, a thanedar who used to loot ppl found out that gyani had saved money for some time and though he was poor he had that saved money, the thanedar looted the gyani at his house and said he was billa from klf, my grandpa asked bhai billa soon after and he said he didnt do a thing, (doesnt make sense either robbing a neigbhor u grew up seeining in the area) that thanedar was later shot dead by bhai sahib...so next time ppl try to label all khadkus bad think again

Police agents did do what I said on the previous page, that doesn't mean real kharkoos didn't do this. Never did I imply that, I thought it was common knowledge that kharkoos did, but the cases where the families were treated ill by "kharkoos" were actually black cats.

As you said in your account, they were tyar bar tyar and GurSikhs.

My relatives who live in Amritsar and Gurdaspur had the good fortune of doing seva of many Kharkoo Singhs. They tell me that most of them were very young, late teens, early to mid 20s, and highly religious. When staying at night, they would spend almost the whole night doing Paath of which ever Bani they had Kanth(memorized).

Another time, one Kharkoo Singh was hiding from the police, so he hid in a Christian(isayee) family`s home whom he knew since childhood. They had him hiding and when the police asked them, they pretended they did not see any Kharkoo and the police did not search their home either thinking since they are Christians why would they hide a Sikh militant. When the police left, the Singh came out and highly appreciated the help of the Christian family and promised that if they ever need help they should consider him their son and he will help them.

Another relative I have tells me that once his family sent him with food and water to their farm to do parshada seva of Kharkoo Singhs who were their to spend the night. This relative of mine was only a teenager at the time. When going seva he says that once his water jug touched the glass of a Kharkoo Singh. The Singh saw this and immediately explained to my relative that when doing Parshada Seva of Sangat or Singhs it is important to keep sucham, and the jug must never touch the glass when poring water in it.

My mamiji told me a story about when they were young. Kharkoos had come to their house to stay (all very young as well) and my mami ji's mom had asked them to please leave because police started to come in and my mamiji and her siblings were all quite young. They left and had a mukabla elsewhere even though it wasn't in their best interest to do so.

    • I saw the video on TikTok I think. It was at Wembley Stadium and I was unable to bookmark/favourite it because Tiktok decided to refresh. It was the "mainstream" Chaupai Sahib you will hear at a Singh Sabha gurdwaras, usually so-called Ramgarhia gurdwaras and also for the past 100 year or so in Harimandir Sahib under the current committee system.  In other words, the sikhs who give up or quit at ਖੜਗ ਕੇਤ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ਰਨਿ ਤਿਹਾਰੀ ॥ ਆਪ ਹਾਥ ਦੈ ਲੇਹੁ ਉਬਾਰੀ ॥ Lord of the Almighty Sword, provides a shield for my protection. With Your Hands you have saved me.   ਸਰਬ ਠੌਰ ਮੋ ਹੋਹੁ ਸਹਾਈ ॥ ਦੁਸ਼ਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥ You bestow help on me at all places and rescue me from pain and the designs of my demons.401. Kharag kait mai sarann tihaaree. Aap haath dai leho ubaaree. Sarab thor mo hoho sahaaee. Dustt dokh té leho bachaaee. (25) O The Lord of Sword, I seek Your protection. With Your Hands you have guarded me. At All Times be my Support. Save me from wickedness and pain. (25).
    • Bro, can you post from what line to what line they did paath of?
    • A decade later and I can show you all what the problem is. Both Khalsa Primary School and students from Pioneer Secondary Academy were invited for Vaisakhi celebrations, and they done a Chaupai Sahib paat. The problem is, they performed the politics ridden anti-dasam Bhasauria mutilated cut version of Benti Chaupai which is disrespectful to traditional puraatan samrpadaiye and mahapurakh. If bani politics is going to be used on children to skip lines from Dasam Pita ji dhan dhan Guru Gobind Singh ji's Benti Chaupai Sahib, that certain groups think it is ok to do, then @serious guptwas right to raise concerns a decade ago! IN 2024, when sangat is much more knowledgable about dasam bani and katha, when we have so many resources - then if we are not allowing our children to learn bani shud and let them choose their groups to follow later, then this raises RED FLAGS IN 2024!!!! AKAAAAL!
