History of sorts was created when "namaz" was performed at historical 'Guru ki Maseet', which was got constructed by the Sixth Sikh Guru Hargobind, for the Muslim brethren about 400 years ago.
While the controversy of Babri Masjid stands unresolved, a "memorandum of understanding" (MoU) has been signed by the Nihangs -the caretakers of the mosque and the Punjab Waqf Board in the presence of Deputy Commissioner K.A.P Sinha.
Dr Mohammad Rizwanul Haque, Administrator, Punjab Wakf Board, described the MoU as an international event which would pave the way for strengthening communal harmony in the country.
Ms Gurmeet Rai, Director, Cultural Resource Conservation Initiative (CRCI), who was honoured with an international award by UNESCO for the conservation of the historical Krishan Temple at Kishankot village, near here, said though as per the MoU, the Taruna Dal, a sect of Nihangs, had agreed to conserve "Guru ki Maseet" as a traditional mosque by allowing to perform "namaz", yet the Wakf Board requested the Nihangs to continue as caretakers. It may be mentioned here that this 17th century mosque on the banks of the Beas was got built by the Sixth Sikh Guru for his Muslim subjects.
The legend has it that the Hindu god Vishwakarma came down to the earth in a human form to build this sacred town. For many years, this mosque has been maintained by the Nihangs as it was abandoned at the time of the Partition. Dr Haque said he remembered that the late Baba Kirtan Singh, the Nihang chief of the Taruna Dal, had signed an MoU at Baba Bakala on February 8 last year. He said it was the desire of babaji that Muslims must perform their "namaz" at the mosque which was gifted to them. As per the wishes of Baba Kirtan Singh, five saplings were planted in the names of five pirs.
Baba Balbir Singh, who is the caretaker of the mosque, told TNS that the Nihangs had preserved the "amanat" of Muslim brethren after the Partition of the country. He said the holy Guru Granth Sahib which was placed inside the mosque was taken to the newly constructed adjoining building so that the mosque could be preserved in its original form as gifted by Guru Hargobind.
Dr Sukhdev Singh, state convener, INTACH, said the CRCI had started the conservation work with the financial help of Sikh Foundation.
Maulwi Hamid Hussain Qasmi was specially called to perform "namaz" from Amritsar. Before the "namaz", in presence of a large number of Nihangs and officers of the district administration, Mr Akhlaq Ahmed Khan, Chief Executive Officer, Punjab Wakf Board, said the performance of "namaz" after 55 years would be recorded in the world history as an event when Sikh brethren showed so much magnanimity towards Muslims.
Earlier, awards were presented to the villagers and members of the CRCI at Kishankot village, where an ancient temple, being looked after the Sikhs was preserved with a cost of Rs 14 lakh. This temple was built during the reign of legendry Maharaja Ranjit Singh.
Mr Richard A.Engelhardt, Regional Advisor for culture in Asia and the Pacific, while presenting awards, said the small village temple had been highlighted at the international level with this award. Mr Barjinder Kumar Uppal, SSP, Gurdaspur, Ms V. Neerja, SSP, Batala, and Mr V.K. Mishra, Vice-Chairman, INTACH, were present at the ceremony.
Sikh religion may be first class but its followers are rotten third class still living at the level of CATTLE in ignorance about Islam.
They are the community MOST MASSACRED, MURDERED, RAPED AND GANG RAPED IN INDIA AND PARTITIONED INDIA, yet they do not understand the strategic game to finish them off totally.
They were exterminated in West Punjab but they don't wish to recall this. The Koran urges the believers to finish off the Kafirs and the Kafir with the sword FIRST.
Not one gurdwara in WEST Punjab has been restored to the Sikhs and if one is restored, there is NO congregation. The congregations which survived up to the end of BRITISH Raj vanished out of fear and fright within days of birth of the Monster called PAKISTAN in 1947.
Not one Sikh spoke to those eager to do the namaz, "Embrace Sikhi now. We are not all third class rats or lepers."
No. Instead the Sikh servant and serf is thrilled and delighted to let them do namaz in the building that had been turned into a gurdwara. Lucky Mohammedan Wolf who is being fed by the lamb.
Now that the Sikh LAMBS have all been eaten up in West Punjab, they are slowly coming back to EAST Punjab, too, to finish off the lot.
What better way to do the namaz and then seduce and abdust the Sikh girls and proceed to procreate and increase, and then attain the critical figure of 50%.
See these very Sikhs, today delighted to see them doing namaz, FLEE THE LAND tomorrow. May you live long enough to see the day when they run for life again after receiving yet another HOLOCAUST. We can all see them INVITING one right now.
