Muslim’s should never allow those like Yogi Adityanath to lay the foundation stone to a Mosque in Ayodhya. – Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune Dated 9th August, 2020
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that it is shameful for Islam to invite Yogi Adityanath to lay the foundation stones of various places of worship of the Islamic faith in Ayodhya.
Yogi Adityanath is no other person than, who along with LK Adwani and bands of BJP – RSS mobs demolished the Islamic Babri Masjid in 1992. Yogi Adityanath is the same person who along with Premier Nerandra Modi laid the Foundation Stone of the Ram Mandir at Ayodhya on 5th August,2020, at the very place where the Islamic Babri Masjid stood before 1992.
History must record that in 1984 the Hindu Indian state led by Premier Indira Gandhi along with BJP – RSS laid siege to the holiest sacred place of worship of the Sikh’s, the Darbar Sahib(The Golden Temple, Amritsar) by inviting the armies of Britain, Soviets and her own and demolished the holy and sacred Akal Takhat Sahib, besides having 36 other Sikh Gurudwara’s assaulted and occupied by this tri-lateral force in an ingress code named Operation Bluestar of 1984.
The Sikhs have never forgiven the Hindu state for this barbaric aggression. After the demolition of the Akal Takhat Sahib Indira Gandhi gave orders to her confidant Boota Singh to have the Akal Takhat Sahib rebuilt. During the re-construction of the holy edifice a strict curfew was imposed at the Darbar Sahib(The Golden Temple, Amritsar) Complex. Only those constructing the edifice were allowed into the premises. The construction of The Akal Takhat Sahib was completed in record time.
However, since the period of our III Guru Amardas Sahib, Sikh’s tend to their own way of life and do not allow any Government or state, no matter how powerful to interfere in their internal religious matters or traditions. Therefore, after Indira Gandhi had the Akal Takhat Sahib reconstructed, the Sikh Jathedars had a meeting of the Sikh Panth where it was decided that the Sikh’s will not accept the Akal Takhat Sahib rebuilt by Indira Gandhi and the Hindu Indian state. Therefore, at this Gurmata of the collected Sikh Jathedars it was decided that the Akal Takhat Sahib constructed by Indira Gandhi and the state be struck down and demolished completely. Therefore, keeping within the tradition of the Sikh’s, the Sikh’s rebuilt the Akal Takhat Sahib through the services and labour rendered voluntarily by every common, bodily strong Sikh. The Akal Takhat Sahib was therefore rebuilt by the Sikh’s through their sewa and contributions but the Indira Gandhi and state built edifice was rejected by the Sarbat Khalsa, the Sikh’s as a whole.
Since Islam is a very old and sacred faith, it should not invite the very person Yogi Adityanath to lay the foundation stone of a Mosque in Ayodhya. We the Sikh’s want the Muslim’s to remember the insult inflicted on them through the force of the state and never ever allow such a power to rebuild the Historic Mosque.
The Sikh’s stand by the Muslim’s in their hour of grief. Never Give In should be the Motto of the minorities, schedule castes, Tribal’s and the ethnic people.
