Amritsar, March 23
After paying his obeisance at the Golden Temple amid the chanting of hymns from Guru Granth Sahib — ‘kudrat de sab bande’ (all human beings belong to the almighty), Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was honoured by the SGPC at its information office with a shawl, a citation of the temple and sets of religious books. Capt Amarinder Singh, who was earlier denied ‘siropa’ (robe of honour), by the SGPC during his visit to the Golden Temple after becoming the Chief Minister, was conspicuous by his absence. Mr Partap Singh Bajwa, PWD Minister, who accompanied Dr Kalam on behalf of the Chief Minister, however, was given a set of religious books.
Dr Kalam paid respect to all 10 Sikh gurus while signing the special visitors’ book of the SGPC. After Queen Elizabeth R. and her husband, Mr Phillip, who visited the Golden Temple on October 14, 1997, Dr Kalam is the second person who was given the opportunity to write his spiritual experience at the Golden Temple in this special book. He wrote: “It is indeed a great spiritual experience in the divine Golden Temple. I give respect with reverence to the 10 Sikh gurus. My best greetings to all people of Punjab and the nation.”
Dr Kalam was honoured by Mr Parkash Singh Badal, President, SAD, Mr Kirpal Singh Badungar, SGPC Chief.
‘I pay respect to 10 Sikh gurus’, wrote Dr Kalam.
Dr Kalam offered “parsad” and listened to the hymn from Guru Granth Sahib, ‘Kudrat de sab bande’ inside the sanctum sanctorum of Golden Temple with folded hands for about three minutes as a humble devotee.
However, the devotees were put to great inconvenience due to his visit. The security personnel formed a human chain to stop the devotees outside the main entrance of the temple for more than half an hour while red carpet was rolled out in front of the main gate of the temple for Dr Kalam.
SMART MUSLIM IS THE WINNER AND THE NATIVE SIKH IS SMASHED AND LICKING DUST.
THE RED CARPET HAS NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, BEEN ROLLED OUT FOR ANY SIKH V.I.P. IN WEST PUNJAB AND EAST BENGAL. BUT THE DEFEATED SIKHS WITH ROTTEN INFERIOR GENES, INHERITED FROM THEIR MOTHERS AND FATHERS, DID ACTUALLY ROLL OUT A RED CARPET FOR ABDUL KALAM WITHOUT ASKING HIM,
"WHEN WILL NANKANA SAHIB ACQUIRE THE STATUS OF YOUR MECCA; AND
WHEN WILL SRI AMRITSAR GET ELEVATED TO THE STATUS OF VATICAN AND OUR EAST PUNJAB RISE IN ITS SOVEREIGN GLORY LIKE YOUR EAST BENGAL?"
IF ONE IS NOT CAREFUL, THE EXPRESSION, "SIKHS ARE BRAVE PEOPLE" WILL TURN TO "SIKHS ARE A THIRD RATE FOOLISH PEOPLE WHO START SINGING "QUDRAT DE SAB BANDEH" ON SEEING A mUSALMAN IN ORDER TO APPESE ABDUL KALAM AND PLEASE SONIA KHAN."
