We are deeply saddened and shocked over the recent incident that took place in Vienna, Austria and subsequent rioting in Punjab, India and our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends, of everyone who has been affected by this incident.
We would appeal to communities around the world to work together, in harmony to resolve this matter peacefully and uphold the honor of the Guru Granth Sahib. The rioting that has been taking place across Punjab and surrounding areas is causing a detrimental effect, to all the communities residing in Punjab and Worldwide.
Tensions had been building up within the Ravidass community for a number of years, concerning the Ballan Dera (Monestary) and their anti Guru Granth Sahib practices. A few years ago, Sant Rama Nand, leader of the Ballan Dera came to the Ravidass Gurdwara on Grove Lane in Handsworth, Birmingham, UK. He was forced to leave by the majority of the congregation and management committee because the majority of the Ravidass community took objection to the presence of any Dera leader, sitting parallel to the Guru Granth Sahib, the present and perpetual Sikh Guru. A few of Sant Rama Nands followers who were from the Hindu Dalit caste were offended by this.
After this incident the Ravidass Gurdwara in Handsworth mounted a plaque within the Gurdwara, banning any cult leaders from undermining the Guru Granth Sahib, with there ritual worshipping practices. At this time Sant Rama Nand leader of the Ballan Dera hired the hall at the Holyhead School on Holyhead Road, Handsworth to hold a gathering for his followers because the Guru Ravidass Gurdwara congregation and management committee, would not allow the gathering to take place there. Several other Ravidass Gurdwaras across the UK, Canada and USA, also banned Sant Rama Nand from performing his ritual worshipping in the Gurdwaras. Most of the Deras have followers from various backgrounds including some Non Punjabi Bhaiyes and other non Punjabis, the majority of the Dera followers are from the Hindu Dalit caste. Many of the Deras are anti Punjab and anti Punjabi and the Deras encourage there Hindu Dalit caste members to become Ravidass Gurdwara Committee members and mislead the Ravidass community and undermine the Guru Granth Sahib in the process. There was a meeting held at the Dera Sucha Sauda last year with senior Congress party leaders, extremist Hindu party members RSS & Shivsenna, Dera leaders and members of the Boota Mandi Hindu Dalit Syndicate, to attempt to topple the Punjab Government by causing community divisions and rioting across Punjab and in the process bringing mayhem to the region.
It would be difficult for any community to allow cult leaders into there places of worship and allow them to undermine their religious beliefs. Similarly as in the incident in the Vienna Gurdwara, some members of the Ravidass congregation were offended by the anti Guru Granth Sahib practices of the Ballan Dera leaders and this has led to a feud in the Gurdwara, between the congregation, resulting in this terrible tragedy occurring.
Some media reports have suggested that the incident at the Gurdwara in Austria was due to tensions between higher and lower castes. This was clearly incorrect because three of the perpetrators who were arrested by the Police are from the Ravidass community. Within the Sikh community we do not have a caste system, however people from different ethnic backgrounds or regions are referred to as Bradrees. This is different from the Hindu community in which castes exist. Within the Sikh community the bradrees literally mean equality amongst all ethnic groups, therefore although people may be from different ethnic groupings, collectively they make up the Sikh nation and are considered equal, which is different from the Hindu caste system, where people consider different castes to be higher and lower castes.
Other media reports have suggested that the Babbar Khalsa and KZF were responsible for the Vienna incident, however both these groups have denied any involvement with this incident.
The tensions were further escalated when Sukhvinder Singh Sukhi from Akash Radio claimed that the KZF had sent Akash Radio an email, claiming responsibility for the Vienna attacks. KZF deny being behind the attack and also deny sending any emails to this effect, to Akash Radio. Sukhvinder Singh Sukhi should have confirmed the authenticity of the email before spreading this rumour and escalating the tension further. Similarly Ranjit Weekly Editor, Ramdas Chahal who uses a Jat surname to mislead people of his ethnic background, was responsible for inciting communal divisions.
Some members of the Ravidass Cultural Association in Birmingham which has been taken over by the Hindu Dalit caste, who belong to the Deras, so called Buddhist society members and others including President Piara Singh (JP), Lachman Dass Jassi, Raj Kumar Gaddu, Shingaru Ram Suman, Lachman Sheimmar, Ramesh Kaler, Ram Kishan Mehmi, Satpal, Satnam Bilga, Manjit Jassi, Manjinder Kaler, Councillor Chaman Lal, Rajinder Jassi, Sunil Mothada, Gurdial Sandhu, Jaswinder Sashalli, Chaman Lal Chauhan, Balwinder Ballu, Gurdish, Gurprit Bansi, Tarsem Sandhu and many others who claim to be, worshipers of Sant Rama Nand also incited communal divisions in the UK, by arranging and participating in a protest in the UK. Harbans Lal Shonky was the main orchestrater of the communal divisions across the Midlands and was supported by Gurdavinder, Buddhist Society President for Birmingham and the UK Buddhist Society President, Chanan Chahal.
Lachman Dass Jassi, Manjit Jassi, Rajinder Jassi, Ramesh Kaler, Manjinder Kaler, Satnam Bilga, Sunil Mothada, Chaman Lal Chauhan, Gurdial Sandhu, Tarsem Sandhu and Chanan Chahal use Jat surnames (Goth) to mislead people of their ethnic background for personal gain. The Jat community resent their surnames being used by non Jats, however if the individuals are mixed raced Jats then they should declare this.
The rioting that has subsequently occurred in Punjab was not caused by the Ravidass community as has been portrayed by the media, but was caused by thugs who were followers of the Ballan Dera and several other groups and Deras whose main aim was to cause disruption in Punjab. The Deras brainwash there followers, the majority of whom, who are from the Hindu Dalit caste from across India and encourage them to undermine the teachings of the Guru Granth Sahib. These groups and Deras include members and followers of the Nirankaris, Noor Mehal Dera Baba Lightanwala (Bhaiya), Baba Ram Rahim (Jat) Sirsewala Dera, Bhaniarawala Dera. The Dera’s are supported by members of Hindu fascist groups RSS and Shivsenna and some members of the Congress Party and BSP. Even the weapons that the rioters were using were similar to those weapons that had been used by Hindu fascist and Hindu Dalit rioters across Delhi in 1984 (led by former Congress party MP’s, Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar).
It is common knowledge that some of the violence instigators and Deras are funded and promoted by the Congress Party and the Government. People from the Ravidass community, who worship the Guru Granth Sahib, need to be aware of the tactics of some individuals from the Hindu Dalit caste, planted in the Ravidassia community, who work for the Congress Government and are trying to create communal violence throughout Punjab and in the process, give the Ravidass community a bad name. This article aims to name and shame some of the main instigators of communal division.
Furthermore these gutless rioters vented there anger by damaging property and possessions of innocent people, looting clothes, meat and liquor and taking this back to there Deras. If the Government fail to apprehend and bring these rioters to justice, this will clearly result in other communities making a stance to the actions of these rioters, which will result in retaliation and inevitably bloodshed across Punjab and surrounding areas.
These rioters were incited by racist elements of the racist Boota Mandi syndicate in Jalandhar who are followers of the Ballan Dera and Hindu fascists, to bring mayhem across Punjab and were supported by MP Mohinder Kaypee, Congress Party Member in Jalandhar. The inciters included Chaudhary Jagjit, Ex Cabinet Minister, Surinder Mahey, Ex Mayor of Jalandhar, Sukhvinder Kotli, MP Goraya, Tirath Ram Sandhu (Noormehal), Baldev Khaira member of Jilla Prished, Ram Saroop Saroai, Balvinder Ralh, Satpal Virk, Narinder Billa, Balhiar Bilga, Amritpal Bhosale, Harminder KK, Tara Chand Jakhu, Sanjeev Bhosale, Inderjeet Chamdard, Rajinder Kazle, Ashwani Bhatoye, Nirmal Guru, Ram Saroop Chamba, Chander Shekher, Manmohan Raju, BSP leaders Ashok Chandla and P. D. Shant.
Balbir Raja Sodhi, member of the Congress Party was one of the main instigators of communal violence in Phagwara and was supported by another Congress Party MLA, Joginder Mann. In Phagwara, Noormehal, Jalandhar, Phillaur, Goraya, Nawanshahr, Nakodar and several other regions, local residents and business owners from different ethnic backgrounds were forced to confront the rioters when they started to damage property, the rioters were challenged and beaten up in confrontations and they ran into their Deras to hide. In several of these regions across Punjab during the rioting, the local communities had to defend their belongings and property, because the Police failed to take any action against the rioters, as they rampaged through the streets. The rioters were confronted by the local communities who were forced to create groups of Sikhs and Hindus, to defend their belongings and property because of the lack of Police action.
Sukhvinder Kotli, MP Singh Goraya, Tirath Ram Sandhu (Noormehal), Baldev Khaira member of the Jilla Prished, Satpal Virk, Balhiar Bilga, Ram Saroop Saroai, Balbir Raja Sodhi and Joginder Mann all use Jat surnames (Goth) to mislead people of their ethnic background for personal gain. The Jat community resent their surnames being used by non Jats, however if the individuals are mixed raced Jats then they should declare this.
The Indian Government should ensure that the Police apprehend the culprits involved in the rioting and violence in India and ensure that they prosecute the culprits, who were involved in the rioting and those who were inciting them. There are many photographs and video footage of the rioting, which clearly needs to be used as evidence to prosecute the culprits. This will ensure that a clear message is sent out to all the different groups in India, who resort to rioting and violence and cause mayhem across India. If the Indian Government fail to apprehend the rioting culprits, the wider community of North West India will have been let down and resent the Indian Government.
The Punjab Police turn a blind eye towards the rioters and those responsible for instigating the rioters, even though they have sufficient evidence against them, however they continue to arrest innocent law abiding Punjabi-Sikhs and plant evidence on them and charge them with committing terrorist activities.
Recently, Baba Balbir Singh of Lamma Jatpura has been arrested with two Sikhs, apparently caught with RDX and detonators according to IG Sanjiv Kalra. The Punjab Police are renowned for framing Punjabi-Sikhs with RDX, this has been done on many occasions by the Indian government to make people hate Sikhs and think of them as terrorists. Human Riots agencies are continually monitoring and collecting further evidence against corrupt officers in the Punjab Police force, who are responsible for framing innocent Sikhs.
The rioting in Punjab, resembles the rioting that was caused across Delhi in 1984, at that time orchestrated by former Congress Party members, Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar who have links with the culprits named above and Deras and have incited them into causing the recent rioting across Punjab and tension Worldwide.
There have also been certain individuals and groups who have been trying to create communal resentment between the Ravidass and other communities, by claiming that the other communities do not recognise Bhagat Ravidass as a Guru. However there are patent Bhagats from different bradrees who have contributed to the Guru Granth Sahib and they are also recognised by their own bradrees as Bhagats and this is not only the case with Bhagat Ravidass. The other Bhagats include Bhagat Jaidev, Bhagat Namdev, Bhagat Trilochan, Bhagat Parmanand, Bhagat Sadhana, Bhagat Beni, Bhagat Ramanand, Bhagat Dhanna, Bhagat Pipa, Bhagat Sain, Bhagat Kabir, Baba Sheikh Farid, Bhagat Bhikhan, Bhagat Surdas.
Furthermore Shromani Akali Dal Councillor, Balbir Singh Dhillon of Ward No. 11 and his colleagues should not be further harassed by the Punjab Police, for killing a protestor in self defence who was part of a mob that attacked them, otherwise there will be widespread resentment. He should, in fact be awarded for his bravery, for helping to protect his community from the Mob attack.
The Indian Government need to follow the example of the USA Government and not support any sects (dera’s) which offend religious beliefs of other worshippers. The Indian Government need to ensure that they apprehend sect leaders who are offending the Guru Granth Sahib worshippers, religious beliefs and practices across India. Similarly there are Dera’s which are operating in the UK also funded by extremist Hindu parties, which are also causing communal hatred between communities, by distorting the teachings of the Guru Granth Sahib, these Deras include the Nirankaris, Ek Niwas, Sach Khand Nanak Dham.
It is disgraceful for Indian Politicians to have arranged and attended the funeral of a Dera leader, who had offended the religious sentiments of worshippers of the Guru Granth Sahib, across the world. Racist Maya Wati, Chief Minister of Utter Pardesh who also attended the funeral is responsible for creating communal tensions across Punjab.
The Government have now appointed S R Laddhar Commissioner of Jalandhar, to head the inquiry into the incidents that occurred across Punjab, however S R Laddhar who also uses a Jat name for personal gain, will be biased as he will discriminate against the Punjabi community, there should be an independent enquiry held by an independent body.
Sant Baba Nirmal Dass of the Raipur Rasulpur Dera, made an official statement to the Ravidass and wider communities to clarify to the Ravidass communnity that one Dera cannot make a decision instructing the Ravidass community to stop worshiping the Guru Granth Sahib. Nobody has the right to instruct worshippers not to follow the teachings of the Guru Granth Sahib and furthermore he stated that people from the Ravidassia community are worshippers of the Guru Granth Sahib.
There are many Hindu Dalits who have now embedded themselves in Ravidass Gurdwaras and are urging the Gurdwara Management of which they are part, to stop worshipping the Guru Granth Sahib and to remove the Guru Granth Sahib from the Gurdwaras. This is contrary to what the Gurdwara congregation have donated money to the Gurdwaras over the years for. The money donated by the Guru Granth Sahib worshippers has been used by these Hindu Dalit led Gurdwaras, to fund unlawful activities of Deras and in the process, misusing money donated by the Ravidass community, to spread the teachings of the Guru Granth Sahib.

VANCOUVER — Rina Kaur Chawla wept with relief Thursday and declared it a miracle when a fireman carried out the Sikh holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib, unscathed from the ashes of a fire that destroyed Vancouver's Khalsa School and the small temple in which the book was lodged.
"It's totally intact. It's a miracle nothing happened to it. It's amazing it was saved," said Chawla.
The temple was located in a converted portable classroom, one of the six portables levelled by the fire, which police suspect was deliberately set at about 7 a.m.
Chawla is a former principal of the elementary school, which is located at 43rd Avenue and Prince Albert Street and has 155 students.
She had gathered with a group of devout Sikhs who had been fretting about the fate of the holy book.
They stood for hours across the street from the temple keeping watch as firefighters fought the blaze, afraid that the book had been consumed by the fire that had already destroyed the walls and roof of the temple, or by the high-pressure water being poured into it from an aerial ladder.
Deputy Fire Chief Tom McEwen said firefighters were made aware of the importance of the book to the Sikh community when they arrived on the scene.
Although the fire was still active and smoke and steam were rising in columns above the ruined school, a firefighter was sent into the destroyed temple and recovered the holy book just before 10:30 a.m.
He carried the book across the street and a Sikh priest dressed in white robes and a white turban spread a large white sheet on which which the book was placed.
The book was then wrapped in the sheet and the priest carried it on his head while the faithful followed behind, repeating prayers. He entered a car and was driven away with the holy book on his lap.
"He does his miracles," said Chawla. "That's the Guru's power. It's totally hard to believe it survived. That building was on fire; there were huge flames coming from it.
"We want to thank the firefighters, they've done an amazing job," she said.
As the holy book was being driven away, Vancouver police arson investigators and the fire department could be seen probing the edges of the ruined school, which was founded in 1986. It was the first Sikh religious school to be opened in B.C.
McEwen said arson was suspected because when firefighters arrived on the scene they saw the fire had spread throughout the portable classrooms.
(Sun photographer Ian Smith, who was on the scene shortly after the fire was reported, saw four distinct fires burning when he arrived.)
It was the second mysterious fire to occur in the school in recent times. In the summer of 2004, a fire damaged two portable classrooms.
Khalsa School principal Jasbir Bhatia arrived at the scene at about 8 a.m. to find his school engulfed in flames.
"Thanks be to God that no lives were lost," Bhatia said.
He said the fire looked suspicious.
"I'm shocked, but we have to leave it to the investigators to find out what happened. We will cooperate fully with the fire department and the police," Bhatia said.
He was at a loss to say what would happen to the 155 children enrolled for classes in September.
"Right now I'm emotionally disturbed by what's happened," he said, looking at the charred beams and collapsed roofs, all that was left of his school.
"We will sit down and plan some line of action, but right now I can't comment. It's too disturbing," he said.
The portables were leased to the school by the Vancouver school district. Firefighters managed to save one portable and kept the blaze from spreading to nearby South Hill School, which is separated from the Khalsa School by a six-metre lane.
Former B.C. premier Ujjal Dosanjh — now MP for Vancouver South — came over from his constituency office a few blocks from the school.
"This is a huge setback for people who send their children to the school," Dosanjh said. "I understand arson is suspected and if that's the case, I hope the police catch the culprits."
AMRITSAR SAHIB (KP)—After holding a very important meeting at the holy city, Singh Sahib Giani Gurbachan Singh (appointed Jathedar, Akal Takht Sahib) officially announced that saroops of Guru Granth Sahib Ji could not be taken to public places, including halls or places where meat or alcohol are served. The hukam was issued recently after Akal Takht Sahib had received numerous complaints regarding private parties having taken saroops of Guru Granth Sahib Ji to party halls.
It should be noted that only two weeks ago, the Panthic Weekly published proof of the Sikh Religious Society of Indiana having taken Guru Granth Sahib Ji’s saroop to Meadows Club in the town of Rolling Meadows, Illinois. The committee has so far refused to honor the requests of Sikh Sangat based all over the United States of America asking them to put an end to such blasphemy. Now with the official hukamnama of Akal Takht Sahib being confirmed once again, Sikh Sangat based in IN and IL hope the committee will acknowledge their mistake.
Giani Gurbachan Singh, while addressing the press, held that to do parkash of Guru Granth Sahib where alcohol or non-vegetarian food is served is not acceptable as per standards of the Sikh Religion. In addition, he stated that people do not remove their shoes at private places, which is also not acceptable for the place where Guru Sahib’s parkash is to be done.
Giani Gurbachan Singh also made it clear that the new hukamnamas asks for all Sikhs to get married only at Gurdwara Sahibs. According to his press statement, party halls were not acceptable for Anand Karaj's. He said that the hukamnama was being reconfirmed considering the satkar or respect for Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
In the past several years, reports of Gurdwara Committees indulging in transferring saroops of Guru Granth Sahib to private places have been on the rise—especially in countries such as England, Canada and the USA. Although a hukamnama passed in March 1998 had put a ban on parkash at such places, worldwide, it was only being followed in Punjab. The recently passed hukamnama asks Sikhs living across the world to abide by this.
Another issue to be addressed at many places in western countries is party halls on Gurudwara premises—permanent or not. Panthic Weekly staff have seen a rise in Gurudwaras sidestepping the hukamnama by putting up tents and creating multi-purpose halls so that restaurant food can be served on Gurudwara premises in a restaurant style, sometimes with shoes and tables.
PATIALA, Punjab(KP)—Following the arrest of Baba Balbir Singh from LammaJat Pura, Singhs lodged in the Nabha based high security jail have written a letter addressed to Giani Gurbachan Singh, appointed Jathedar Sri Akal Takht Sahib. The letter expressed grief over a lack of interest shown by Giani Gurbachan Singh over the imprisonment of Sikh political prisoners recently. The letter states that the Akal Takht Sahib Jathedar must look over all aspects of the Sikh religion—which includes safeguarding and fair trial of Sikh prisoners.
According to the letter penned by the grandson of Giani Gurbachan Singh Khalsa Bhindrawale, Bhai Amolak Singh Akara writes that for the Akal Takht Sahib Jathedar to remain silent over the arrest of innocent Singhs is very disturbing. He writes that along with innocent Sikhs, saintly personalities of the Sikh religion had been wrongfully arrested and detained by the Punjab Police, yet no action has been taken by the most supreme authority of the Sikhs.
Bhai Amolak Singh writes that the imprisoned Singhs saw some hope after Giani Gurbachan Singh passed a sandesh asking the Punjab Government to release the Sikh political prisoners who have been lodged in Punjab’s jails for years. This sandesh was passed on the twenty-fifth anniversary of Operation Blue Star which was remembered at a large scale by Panthic Organizations. The sandesh, however, seemed to hold no affect whatsoever over the Punjab Government as the matter was not taken forward.
Bhai Amolak Singh writes that following the passing of the sandesh, he had personally thanked the Akal Takht Sahib Jathedar in a letter. He revisits his previous correspondence in which he had requested Giani Gurbachan Singh, appointed Jathedar, to confirm that the sandesh doesn’t solely remain a sandesh penned down on paper and that the matter actually gets heard by the appropriate authorities.
The writer further expresses grief over the arrest of Baba Balbir Singh Ji, who was arrested along with other Singhs in a very suspicious manner. Bhai Amolak Singh expresses that the arrest of Baba Balbir Singh made him fully confirm that the current Jathedar’s sandesh held no standing in front of the Punjab Government.
The letter by Bhai Amolak Singh Akhara also sheds light on the true reason behind the arrest of Baba Balbir Singh. Bhai Amolak Singh writes that during his personal meeting with Baba Balbir Singh at the jail, he learned that the charges being leveled on Baba Balbir Singh were fabricated and the illegal arms and weapons had been wrongfully planted.
Bhai Amolak Singh concludes his letter stating that the Akal Takht Sahib Jathedar should recognize his duty for Singhs who had been falsely implicated in various criminal cases. In addition, the Singhs who have continued the struggle for freedom also needed to be looked after by the Akal Takht Sahib. Without the Akal Takht Sahib, the imprisoned Singhs had no one to appeal to.

Do not turn your back on the Sikh Victims – Do the honourable thing!
If a Singer raped your child, would you wear their top and still listen to their music? The answer is no, as a protest to the Singers act many more would turn their backs on this singer. That’s would be the honourable thing to do dough?
So why is it that we so called Sikhs wear the tops of our oppressors?
On October 31, 198, Indira Ghandi was assassinated by her two Sikh security guards as payback for all the atrocities she had committed and as prevention to prevent her from committing the atrocities she had planned. Even dough one of the assassins was shot dead on the spot and the other taken into custody. Anti Sikh Murder squads killed thousands of Sikhs.
Sikhs were beaten, stabbed, doused in kerosene and burned alive by mobs, thousands of Sikhs were made homeless and jobless less as there shops and homes were reduced to ashes. 330 Gurdwaras were burnt and Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Saroops were desecrated in many violating situations.
The slaughter of Sikhs took place throughout
Many of the organizers of these anti-Sikh military like pogroms have been identified as politicians at the highest levels of the Indian government. These individuals roam free even today and continue to participate in elections. No attempt has ever been made by the Indian government to bring them to justice.
“The bodies beside the track were all Sikhs, some had been burned alive others were beaten to death. The Sikhs were pulled from trains by a Hindu mob outside
For the first time in history of mob violence in
More than 60,000 Sikhs were rendered homeless in
Days of violence, loot and murder left the national capital dazed, reeling from an unprecedented holocaust. The pattern was nauseatingly repeated everywhere. Spontaneous arson and destruction at first taken by criminally led hoodlums who killed Sikhs, looted or burnt homes and properties while the police twiddled their thumbs. – India today November 15th 1984
An eyewitness account revealed that a Sikh was being pursued by a mob, attempting to save his life he climbed into a police jeep. But he was thrown out by the police to the attacking mob and was killed on the spot. – Manushi November 1984
Police officers stood by and watched arson, rape, looting and murder without making any attempt to intervene to protect citizens belonging to the Sikh minority. They did not stop the attackers or call for reinforcements or even other support such as the fire brigade. – Report – who are the guilty?
Human rights violations and atrocities continue to occur towards minority groups all over
Freedoms we take for granted are non existent for citizens of this so called democratic country.
As a Sikh do not wear the Indian colour or an Indian team top, they are the symbols of our oppressors!

The Karni Namah and the Raj Namah are two significant chapters of the Sau Sakhi, the Sikh book of prophecy. The Raj Namah appears in, The History of the Sikhs, by J D Cunningham on p. 340. Cunningham came across this document during the mid 19th century. He states that these compositions are of course fabulous as regards Guru Nanak.
The Karni Namah was told to Qazi Rukan Din, Pir Bahaoud Din, Ghous, Kuthab, Saalaar, Hajji, Sheikh and Mushaikh Aulviya, who sat with Guru Nanak at religious discussions. The Raj Namah was told to Kaarun, on Guru Nanak’s return from medina.
While Guru Nanak was in
In the tenth dress shall reside The Lord.
I shall fight many battles against Emperor Aurangzeb.
I shall then send a letter of victory (Zafarnamah) to Aurangzeb with my Singh (Bhai Daya Singh).
Upon seeing him, Power shall lessen and he shall forget his devious ways.
Emperor Aurangzeb will be overwhelmed by the sight of Daya Singh and will start to tremble.
The Khalsa been resurrected! Good has not been done by Gobind Singh?
I shall leave having given a kingdom; My name being Gobind
There will be a time when the Khalsa shall forget the teachings I have given them. Sikhi will only be left in name. Many Wars shall occur.
I will have to return again to resurrect the Khalsa. They shall reside in the
I shall make people from all four corners into one.
They will be in Majjha; They will raid
They will bring Potohaar to justice; They will take
They will set up a cantonment at Attock and then open the
They will establish a kingdom in
After bringing Hazaara to justice they will march on to
After taking Balack and Buckaara, they will conquer Sindh and Baloch.
After gaining victory over these lands they shall govern all the people.
They shall gain victory in battle over south and west
The Guru’s Army shall sit at the throne of
Umbrellas of kingship shall sway over their heads. All shall be content.
From East to West all shall be conquered. None shall challenge the Khalsa. All humanity shall become one.
In the kingdom of the True King, Satjug shall be established.
The Khalsa Panth shall rule. The arrows of death shall not touch them.
The Army of the Timeless shall grow and spread like locusts.
All shall wear vestments of blue; no one else shall be seen.
Listen Qazi Rukan Din, The Singhs shall rule.
The Unholy Sheikhs shall be destroyed. Pirs and Mureeds shall be no more.
All shall recite the one name of the Lord. Then he shall come himself.
The untrue shall not be able to see his glory.
All humanity shall unite and he will distribute provinces.
The Earth shall give food and the mountains shall give diamonds.
Fruits of many kinds there shall be, upon the sight of the timeless.
All shall recite VAHEGURU and achieve salvation.
Many Dharamsalas (places of discussion) shall exist. The Koran and the Mosques shall vanish.
The Lord shall manifest himself in body (as man).
He will make all utter VAHEGURU. All Singhs shall flock under his banner.
All shall know him as the True One. He will sit at the throne of
He will establish a kingdom of peace and no enemies will remain.
Wherever the Khalsa turns his eye, the 14 realms shall tremble.
For 14,000 years, this kingdom shall remain.
Wealth will be collected and food shall be distributed.
The naked and the starving shall all receive; no one will go without.
Sayeth Nanak, Rukan Din, This is how it shall be.
Whosoever reads the Karni Namah, his love with The Lord shall grow.
The Word of the Timeless shall prevail. Those uttering falsehood shall not remain.
After the effect of The Akaal, forests, mountains and the world shall see salvation.
The Khalsa shall Rule. There will be no-one left to oppose them.
All who are lost shall gain the safety of the Khalsa
Spoken by the First Master
First, Nanak went to
The lord of
Kaarun, he made his disciple.
When Nanak was about to depart,
Kaarun, the fortunate, thus spoke:
Now thou art about to go,
But when wilt thou return?
Then the Guru thus answered:
When I put on my tenth dress
I shall be called Gobind Singh;
Then shall all Singhs wear their hair;
They shall accept the 'Pahal' of the two-edged Sword
Then shall the Khalsa be established;
Then shall men exclaim 'Vaheguru'
The four races shall become one and the same;
The five weapons shall be worn by all.
In Kalyug they shall array themselves in vestments of blue;
The name of the Khalsa shall be everywhere.
In the time of Aurangzeb
The wondrous Khalsa shall arise.
Then shall battles be waged,
Endless war shall ensue,
And fighting shall follow year after year.
They shall place the name of Gobind Singh in their hearts.
When many heads shall be rendered up,
The Empire of the Khalsa shall prevail.
First, they shall conquer
Then other countries shall be theirs;
Then the west shall bow to them.
When they enter Khorasan,
Arabia shall be conquered and they shall march on to
Mighty shall be the rejoicing,
And all shall exclaim 'Vaheguru'.
Unbelievers shall everywhere be destroyed;
The holy Khalsa shall be exalted.
Beasts and Birds shall tremble in the presence of the Lord.
Men and Women shall everywhere call on God.
The Earth, the Oceans and the Heavens shall call on God.
By calling on the Guru shall men be blessed.
Every faith shall become of the Khalsa;
No other religion will remain.
'Vaheguru' shall everywhere be repeated,
And pain and trouble shall depart.
In the Kalyug shall the Kingdom be established,
Which Nanak received from the Lord.
Worthless, I fall before God;
Nanak, the slave, cannot comprehend the ways of the Lord.
Thus replied Nanak to Kaarun's question.
