WE ARE MOST GRATEFUL FOR THE FOLLOWING CONTRIHUTION RECEIVED FROM A FRUSTRATED SIKH. IT ALSO SHOWS THE HEALTH OF THE HINDU NATION AT LARGE :
.........A SIKH'S CRY IN WILDERNESS: PERISHING PAGANS
A PAGAN WITH TURBAN ON HEAD, OR SWORD IN HAND, OR WITH GRANTH ABOVE ALL, IS STILL PERISHING. "BINA AQAL WHAT GOOD IS SHAKAL"?
There is a moment in a nation's history to grab or to ignore. In 1947 the Sikh community had NO initiative to grab Lahore and Nankana Sahib (distinct possibilities then). We were BEATEN and a mention of those lost gurdwaras is heard in our daily Ardas.
The same Panth, the same AQAL and the same LEADERS are on top of us now, and everywhere, with a few exceptions.
When the news of attack on Swaminarayan Temple came, it shook the Hindu souls down to the bone marrow across the globe.
How would one feel on hearing that his/her father has been shot dead, or daughter raped? In this case it was the Hindus' divine Lord and many consider Swaminarayan to be no less than God. Yet our SGPC and our man on UNION Territory kept on sleeping. They were simply not aware of the IMPLICATIONS of the devastatingly daring attack on Hindu morale, sense of security and "feel good" factor in Hindustan, given an Abdul Kalam and a "Bottle Behari" overhead.
What kind of INITIATIVE did one expect?
For SGPC to go out to post NIHANG SINGHS as guards in front of all the major Hindu temples. Did Guru Gobind Singh ji not reach out to the persecuted Hindu Pandits of Kashmir?
For SGPC to announce major EVANGELICAL CRUSADE to turn the hapless, helpless, defenceless Hindu "sheep", on the run from South Kashmir, terrorised in Ayodhya and now demoralised in GANDHI NAGAR, into lions. Isn't this exactly what Guru Gobind Singh ji did? What else is meant by "Chidion se baaz ladaon, tab hi Gobind Singh naam Kahaun"? Dear all, the "chidis" (sparrows) then were the HINDUS, just like those "sitting ducks" shot dead at Swaminarayan Temple in Gandhinagar last Tuesday.
If we forget our history and ROLE in decomposing and disintegrating India, who is to tell us? President Abdul Kalam? Mother of Nation Sonia Khan? Trembling Vajpayee?
We mean our SGPC had to go on "PARCHAAR OFFENSIVE" immediately on their own territory and not wait for my e-mail.
If we see the rising number of converts to Islam and Christianity in Hindustan, we will become aware of the unannounced CRUSADES that are going on there, tightening the noose around the necks of the Hindus all the time. Spare a thought for the "Hindus on the run", for the Hindus who are the VICTIMS, for the HINDUS who do not even know why the Muslims are all over Hindustan despite Partition. Does our SGPC or the Man on Union Territory, know?
SGPC has no means to make such an observation. Are their "INITIATIVES" confined to round the clock "nishkam sewa" only?
In short, we expect them to SHOW the shine of an INITIATIVE like the shine of a KIRPAN, and promptly announce the recruitment and despatch 10,000 parcharaks across the demoralised land of those who will "stick to ahimsa & perish", in order to COMMEND Sikhi with one tenth of the courage that frail and octagenarian mother Teresa showed as long as she lived.
When the Soviet Union collapsed, scores of far seeing and ALERT Christian organisations in the United States and Europe noticed the spiritual VACUUM and, seeing the opportunity, despatched their workers and missionaries who were on the spot from Czech Republic to Mongolia before any Abdul Kalam realised what was going on.
When we travel around there, we are glad to see new churches coming up and the old ones filled to capacity. At least these are not mosques funded by the fundamentalist Wahabis of Saudi Arabia who will be attending to the vacuum in Hindustan.
