waheguru ji....mughal kings like aurangzeb got the "raaj" because of their bhagti and some good karams done in previous lives....like "raavan"

to empty their "kamai" earned, the sacrifice had to be above their level of kamai.........

if Guru ji had not given "shaheedi", their cruelity would have prevailed for longer period.......

as you rightly metioned "5th and 9th Paatshah could give that particular sacrifice because of who they were, i.e. immensely pious and holy blood had to be spilled"

and Gurbani also says "nirdosh nu maarna is the biggest sin".........and that's what mughals did which emptied their kamai.............and their empire came to an end shortly after that.......

Bhai Gurdas's Account of Martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev

Guru Arjan Dev was martyred as per orders of emperor Jahangir on May 30, 1606. Jahangir wrote in his Tuzak-i-Jahangiri only 20 days after the martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev that he ordered his execution.

Bhai Gurdas had documented the martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev as follows:

ਗੁਰੂ ਅਰਜਨ ਜੀ ਦੀ ਜੋਤੀਜੋਤ

!->!->

ਰਹਿਦੇ ਗੁਰੁ ਦਰੀਆਉ ਵਿਚਿ ਮੀਨ ਕੁਲੀਨ ਹੇਤੁ ਨਿਰਬਾਣੀ।

Rahiday Guru Dareeaau Vichi Meen Kuleen Haytu Nirabaanee.

रहिदे गुरु दरीआउ विचि मीन कुलीन हेतु निरबाणी ।

Liberating the soul from the body, Guru (Arjan Dev) stabilized himself in the water of river as the fish remains in water.

सबदु सुरति लिव मिरग जिउ भीड़ पई चिति अवरु न आणी ।

Caring of for life, as the deer keeps its consciousness concentrated when in peril, the Guru also, when undergoing suffering kept none else except the Lord in is' consciousness.

As the black bee remains enrapt in the petals of flower • enjoy fragrance, the Guru also spent night of suffering by keeping joyfully s concentration on the feet of Lord.

गुरमुखि सुख फलु पिरम रसु सहज समाधि साध संगि जाणी ।

The pleasure it of the Gurmukh (Guru Arjan Dev) is the delight of love and he accepts the holy congregation as the natural state of meditation.

6 ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੨੪ ਪਉੜੀ ੨੩ ਪੰ. ੬

Noted Sikh historian Dr. Harjinder Singh Majhail[13] writes,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guru_Arjan

"The martyrdom of the fifth Guru is a first turning point in Sikh history. It created circumstances, which gave a militant colour to a spiritually coloured, otherworldly people. The Sikhs for whom their Satguru i.e. True Master was dearer than anything else in the world, were never ready to accept their True master's martyrdom. What pained them more was that their Master was mercilessly tortured to death. The fifth Guru was made to sit on big hot ferrous bread-baking plates and the burning sands from a parcher's furnace were poured on his bare body. After such inhuman tortures, the Guru was taken to the river 'Ravi' for a bath where he was said to have mysteriously disappeared into the 'Ravi'. All this was too much for the Sikhs. The blood-curdling tortures meted out on their beloved Guru made their blood boil. They sat brooding waiting for vengeance".

Is this fact right that Guru Sahib "mysteriously disappeared into the 'Ravi".

Or

Guru Sahib was drowned by mughals.

This is exactly why I made the comment above !!

There are different accounts of what really happened !

After the inhuman torchers of scolding him on the hot plates and pouring hot sand, they decided to let his scolded body be bathed in the river ??

Or was it to see how long he could hold his breath in the water ??

However, some people make it sound as if he went there by choice to be liberated and merged with the light !

I don't think that he would have tried to fool anyone that he could just disappear !!!

    • I agree. Unfortunately we have people in our community who go out of their way to p1ss of Hindus by helping Muslims even when these Muslims were the ones in the wrong. Case in point, Simranjeet Singh Mann needlessly got involved in the Muzaffarnagar riots issue when he went to tour Muslims refugee camps to show his support for them against the Jats who they had been involved in riots with. Ravi Singh of Khalsa Aid also has the same mindset. He deliberately helps Muslims and his attempt to equate the Delhi riots of 2020 with the genocide of 1984 shows his malicious intent.

    • How does it mention the Guru giving the Gurgadhi? Was this wrriten by the Guru after giving the Gurgadhi?
    • https://www.hindustantimes.com/cities/delhi-news/gogi-vs-tillu-delhi-gangsters-bond-that-ended-in-bloodshed-101632507909325.html DELHI NEWS Gogi vs Tillu: Delhi gangsters’ bond that ended in bloodshed Jitender Maan alias Gogi and Sunil Maan alias Tillu Tajpuria, once childhood friends and student politicians, went on to become deadly rivals, and for more than a decade they fought a bloody turf war that spilled blood on the streets of Haryana and the national Capital By Prawesh Lama UPDATED ON SEP 25, 2021 07:38 AM IST   Jitender Maan alias Gogi and (right) Sunil Maan alias Tillu Tajpuria. (Sourced) The life of gangster Jitender Maan alias Gogi,30, shot dead by his rivals inside the Rohini court on a rainy Friday afternoon, is one of dreams, friendship, student politics, money, guns, and gore.   Gogi was once a teenager who excelled in sport (volleyball and athletics), represented his schools at several competitions, and got admitted to Delhi University (DU) on the sports quota. There, he and his closest childhood friend, Sunil Maan, got sucked into student politics. Maan is now better known as gangster Tillu Tajpuria in police records. The two went on to become deadly rivals, and for more than a decade, their names can be found together in police files and case papers that detail how they have fought a bloody turf war that spilled blood on the streets of Haryana and the national Capital. Had the two not stepped into he world of student politics, their paths would not have crossed, and their names may not have been in Delhi Police’s most wanted list. Perhaps Gogi would not have been inside court number 207 at Rohini on Friday, where two gunmen, dressed as lawyers, waited for him and then shot him dead. Tajpuria, who is in Tihar, is now the prime suspect in his friend-turned-rival Gogi’s murder. CRIME AND COLLEGE Gogi had at least 19 cases of murder, robbery, extortion and arms act against him. Police believe the actual number of murders that Gogi masterminded could be much more, as the families of several victims did not report the crime out of fear. Police files say Gogi ran an extremely sophisticated organised crime syndicate, was involved in extortion, in collecting ransom and protection money, and in vehicle theft. A police officer who has questioned Gogi in the past, said, “Before he became a top gangster, he had a name in the Alipur village of outer Delhi, but it was for good reasons. He studied in a local government school and was a budding volleyball ball player and an athlete. He said he had wanted to represent India in the national games. He also claimed to have represented Delhi in the national games as an athlete. But we never found proof of it. Everything was going well for him till he started visiting the campus of the nearby Swami Shradhhanand College in Alipur around 2007.” Gogi did not spend his time at campus alone. His childhood friend Sunil Mann accompanied him. “They hung out together since their childhood,” the officer added. The circumstances of how the two friends crossed paths is unclear -- the two never told police about it. But it is clear that they fought during the college 2007 university elections. Police said the two friends ended up supporting two different candidates for the post of the vice president for the college. “Tajpuria and Gogi did not contest the elections directly, but they were providing muscle power to the candidates. It is unclear why the two decided to support two different candidates, when they were such close friends. This is when they got involved with local criminals. In fact, the first case registered against Gogi is also that of a fight between him and other students outside the college Alipur in 2008. He was booked for attempted murder then,” a second officer said. Until 2013, Gogi was still a small-time criminal known only in pockets of outer Delhi. His rise to the number 1 on Delhi Police’s wanted list was a result of the death of gangster Neetu Dabodia in 2013, and later arrest of Dabodia’s rival, Neeraj Bawana, in 2015. Before the Tillu- Gogi gang war, the two other rival gangs --Dabodia and Bawana – fought bloody turf wars on the city streets. “There was a vacuum after Dabodia’s death and Bawana’s arrest. Gogi and Tillu Tajpuria slowly rose to become the top gangsters after 2015. Around 2013, Gogi met another Delhi university student Kuldeep Fajja (he was shot dead in a police encounter five months ago). They met at the Shraddhanand College during the DUSU election. Unlike Gogi, Fajja was an educated person, with a B.Sc from Kirori Mal College. Fajja taught Gogi how to using internet calls and social media to spread fear. Fajja and Gogi then committed multiple murders, extortion, contract killing. Fajja, too, is responsible for Gogi’s rise. The two men had vowed to finish the Tillu gang,” said the second officer quoted above. On the morning of March 3,2020 when police arrested Gogi from an upscale housing society in Gurugram, Fajja too, was inside the house, according to police records. MURDER MOST FOUL The most notable contract killing that Gogi was part of was that was Haryana singer Harshita Dahiya on October 10, 2017 in Panipat. Though police said it was a contract killing planned by Dahiya’s brother-in-law, Dinesh Karala. Gogi did not take any money from the man but extracted one promise – Karala must kill members of the Tillu gang. On June 18,2018, during an exchange of firing between Tillu and Gogi gang members in Burari, four people were killed. Of the four, two were passersby who had no connection with the two gangs. “ Over the years, Gogi become more daring, as was evident from the shoot-outs on the city streets in broad daylight. Less than a month before he was arrested last year, Gogi and his gang members stopped a man, whom they suspected of supporting his rivals, and fired 48 rounds in the middle of the market. Of the 48 bullets, the man was hit with 26 bullets killing him on the spot,” said a third police officer. For the last 18 months, Gogi was in prison lodged in the jail’s high-risk cell. But police continued to received reports of traders receiving extortion calls from inside prison. In June last year, a businessman in Rohini informed police about receiving WhatsApp calls from Gogi demanding ₹5 crore as protection money. Prison officers had reportedly found three cell phones in his possession. On Friday, after news reports of Gogi murder broke out, several police officers who met the man said it was ironic that Gogi, once Delhi’s most wanted gangster, was shot dead inside court. The officers cited August 9, 2016 police report prepared. It read -- “there is strong apprehension that Jitender Gogi will eliminate members of rival gang and can attack Sunil Tillu (Tajpuria) at the time of his production before the court from jail.” Five years later, the notice came true. But, on Friday, September 24, 2021, Gogi was the victim.
