12 clock Story


12 clock Story

During 17th Century, when Hindustanwas ruled by

Mughals, all the Hindu people were humiliated and were

treated like animals. Mughals treated the Hindu women

as there own property and were forcing all Hindus to

accept Islam and even used to kill the people if they

were refusing to accept.That time, our ninth Guru, Sri

Guru Teg Bahadarji came forward,in response to a

request of some
Kashmir Pandits to fight against all

these cruel activities. Guruji told the Mughal emperor

that if he could succeed in converting him to Islam,

all the Hindus would accept the same.

But, if he failed, he should stop all those activities

. The Mughal emperor happily agreed to that but even

after lots of torture to Guruji and his fellow members

he failed to convert him to Islam and Guruji along

with his other four fellow members, were torture! d and sacrificed their

lives in Chandni Chowk. Since the Mughals were unable to convert them

to Islam they were assassinated.

Thus Guruji sacrificed his life for the protection of

Hindu religion. Can anybody lay down his life and that

too for the protection of another religion? This is

the reason he is still remembered as "Hind Ki

Chaddar", shield of
India. For the sake of whom he had sacrificed his

life, none of the them came forward to lift his body, fearing that

they would also be assassinated .

Seeing this incident our 10th Guruji, Sri Guru Gobind

Singhji (Son of Guru Teg Bahadarji) founder of khalsa

made a resolution that he would convert his followers

to such human beings who would not be able to hide

themselves and could be easily located in thousands.

At the start, the Sikhs were very few in numbers as

they were fighting against the Mughal emperors. At

that time, Nadir Shah raided
Delhiin the year 1739

and looted
Hindustan and was carrying lot of Hindustan treasures and

nearly 2200 Hindu women along with him. The news spread like a fire

and was heard by Sardar Jassa Singh who was the Commander of the Sikh army

at that time. He decided to attack Nadir Shah's Kafila on

the same
midnight . He did so and rescued all the Hindu

women and they were safely sent to their homes.

It didn't happen only once but thereafter whenever

any Abdaalis or Iranis had attacked and looted

Hindustan and were trying to carry the treasures and

Hindu women along with them for selling them in Abdal

markets, the Sikh army although fewer in numbers but

were brave hearted and attacked them at
midnight ,12

O'clock and rescued women.

After that time when there occurred a similar

incidence, people started to contact the Sikh army for

their help and Sikhs used to attack the raider's at

Midnight , 12 O'clock . Nowadays, these "smart people"

and some Sikh enemies who are afraid of Sikhs, have

spread these words that at 12 O'clock
, the Sikhs go

out of their senses. This historic fact was the reason

which made me smile over that person as I thought that

his Mother or Sister would be in trouble and wants my

help and was reminding me by saying off 'Sardarji

Barah Baj Gaye' ."
