DESPITE WEAKENING ECONOMY, PAKISTAN APPROVES 1 BILLION FOR CONSTRUCTION AT BABA GURU NANAK UNIVERSITY

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—Despite day by day weakening economy, the Pakistan government has approved PKR 1 billion for continuing the construction of Baba Guru Nanak University at Nankana Sahib.

 

On June 27, western Punjab’s CM Usman Buzdar approved ‘Baba Guru Nanak University Budget Bill 2020’ for the second phase of construction at Baba Guru Nanak University, under which PKR 1 billion will be spent for the construction of hostel, administrative block, and classrooms.

A wave of ardency is being observed among the Pakistani Sikhs as soon as the completion of construction work at Baba Guru Nanak University is heading towards completion.  

Baba Guru Nanak University will benefit thousands of students living in villages nearby to Sri Nankana Sahib, Sheikhupura, Jadaanwala, Okada, etc.

It may be recalled here that the foundation stone of Baba Guru Nanak International University (BGNU) was laid in Nankana Sahib on July 12. The Pakistan government is likely to spend more than 2.5 billion rupees to develop a high standard infrastructure over 70 acres land allotted to the University.

On the one hand Imran Khan is trying to encourage Sikhs to view Pakistan as a Sikh friendly country and then on the other the court has just slapped the Sikh community in the face by returning an abducted Sikh girl to her rapist husband. 

The only students this university will benefit will be the Muslim ones from the villages.

    • The Anandpur Sahib Resolution : The Anandpur Sahib Resolution represents a pivitol point of Sikh history,  after many years of failed negotiations with the Govt, a list of minimum Sikh demands was drafted. It is interesting to note that it was drafted in 1973 and it was only after the Govt failed to accept these basic demands (many of which most States already enjoyed from 1947) that the Sikhs were forced into the Dharam Yudh Morcha (Agitation and protest).Read more: https://khalsaforce.in/anandpur-sahib-resolution/ Point by point demands found here: https://www.satp.org/satporgtp/countries/india/states/punjab/document/papers/anantpur_sahib_resolution.htm (Excerpted from The Encyclopedia of Sikhism, Vol. 1, 1995, ed., Harbans Singh, page 133-141) Anandpur Sahib Resolution, a frequently invoked document of modern Sikhism pronouncing its religious rule as well as its political goal. After having enjoyed power under chief ministers, Gurnam Singh and Parkash Singh Badal in the Punjab, newly demarcated in 1966, Sikhs are represented by their premier political party, the Shiromani Akali Dal, were able to capture only one seat at the elections to Indian parliament (1971) from among the 13 which were Punjab’s portion. In the Punjab Assembly elections which took place in March 1972 their tally was a mere 24 seats of a total of 117, and the Punjab Government passed in to the hands of the Congress Party, with Giani Zail Singh (later, President of India) as chief minister. This electoral debacle led to self introspection on the part of the Shiromani Akali Dal which appointed on 11 December, 1972, a sub-committee to reflect upon the situation and to proclaim afresh the programme and polices of the Dal. The 12 member committee consisted of Surjit Singh Barnala, Gurcharan Singh Tohra, Jiwan Singh Umranangal, Gurmeet Singh, Dr. Bhagat Singh, Balwant Singh, Gian Singh Rarewala, Amar Singh Ambalavi, Prem Singh Lalpura, Jaswinder Singh Brar, Bhag Singh, and Major General Gurbakhsh Singh of Badhani. The first meeting of the sub-committee took place at Amritsar. The venue then shifted to Chandigarh where the committee completed its task in ten successive meetings. Counsel was available to the sub-committee of the celebrated Sikh intellectual and thinker, Sirdar Kapur Singh, whose impress the draft emerging finally from its deliberations carried. The document was adopted unanimously by the working committee of the Shiromani Akali Dal at a meeting held at Anandpur Sahib, town sacred to Guru Gobind Singh, also reverenced by Sikhs as the birth place of the Khalsa. Since it was adopted at Anandpur Sahib (October 16-17, 1973) the resolution came to be known as the Anandpur Sahib Resolution. It was endorsed in the form of a succession of resolutions at the 18th All India Akali Conference of the Shiromani Akali Dal at Ludhiana on 28-29 October, 1978. An English version of the resolution is quoted below: Read more about its history:https://www.thesikhencyclopedia.com/the-modern-history-of-sikhs-1947-present/anandpur-sahib-resolution
    • You deleted the post, but withing one hour someone from the mod team deleted the whole thread from the forum. Did you request the mod team to delete the thread?  Why were the mod team so quick to delete a thread that was about grace?  You cannot delete threads.  You should have no problem posting the two separate writes ups you did in that thread.  Be honest, you don't want the sangat here to read what you wrote because in one of the post you asserted to being Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.   Right after I asked you,  are you claiming to be Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji?  It could not have been 30 minutes later you deleted the write up on both post and within the hour the thread disappeared.    Since you have the two post saved.  Let the sangat see what you wrote.  Your post contained no top secret information or anything special but they did speak to how you see yourself.    
    • How can you say naam simran is not required?! all of gurbani is telling us to jap naam. Every ang is related to naam. Every rehatnama which tells us to read nitnem also say to jap naam before bani. Naam should start when your eyes open at amrit vela, carry on while showering and then finally on assan. This is what maharaj tells us ਮਃ ੪ ॥ Fourth Mehla: ਗੁਰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਜੋ ਸਿਖੁ ਅਖਾਏ ਸੁ ਭਲਕੇ ਉਠਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵੈ ॥ One who calls himself a Sikh of the Guru, the True Guru, shall rise in the early morning hours and meditate on the Lord's Name. ਉਦਮੁ ਕਰੇ ਭਲਕੇ ਪਰਭਾਤੀ ਇਸਨਾਨੁ ਕਰੇ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਸਰਿ ਨਾਵੈ ॥ Upon arising early in the morning, he is to bathe, and cleanse himself in the pool of nectar. ਉਪਦੇਸਿ ਗੁਰੂ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਜਪੁ ਜਾਪੈ ਸਭਿ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਪਾਪ ਦੋਖ ਲਹਿ ਜਾਵੈ ॥ Following the Instructions of the Guru, he is to chant the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. All sins, misdeeds and negativity shall be erased. ਫਿਰਿ ਚੜੈ ਦਿਵਸੁ ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਗਾਵੈ ਬਹਦਿਆ ਉਠਦਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵੈ ॥ Then, at the rising of the sun, he is to sing Gurbani; whether sitting down or standing up, he is to meditate on the Lord's Name. ਜੋ ਸਾਸਿ ਗਿਰਾਸਿ ਧਿਆਏ ਮੇਰਾ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਸੋ ਗੁਰਸਿਖੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਮਨਿ ਭਾਵੈ ॥ One who meditates on my Lord, Har, Har, with every breath and every morsel of food - that GurSikh becomes pleasing to the Guru's Mind. ਜਿਸ ਨੋ ਦਇਆਲੁ ਹੋਵੈ ਮੇਰਾ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਤਿਸੁ ਗੁਰਸਿਖ ਗੁਰੂ ਉਪਦੇਸੁ ਸੁਣਾਵੈ ॥ That person, unto whom my Lord and Master is kind and compassionate - upon that GurSikh, the Guru's Teachings are bestowed. ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਧੂੜਿ ਮੰਗੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਗੁਰਸਿਖ ਕੀ ਜੋ ਆਪਿ ਜਪੈ ਅਵਰਹ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਾਵੈ ॥੨॥ Servant Nanak begs for the dust of the feet of that GurSikh, who himself chants the Naam, and inspires others to chant it. ||2|| Guru Raam Daas Ji in Raag Gauree - 305 Doesn’t everyone’s panj Singhs give hukam for 2 hours simran? Or is it different for every jatha Minimum nitnem for abhiyaasi: 2 hours naam simran  5 baniyan Sukhmani sahib  assa di vaar  10 Ang sehaj paath  this is what daas was told at amrit sanchar.
