The true Good.

The goodness exist until adversity strikes on the face of so called “good” person. The problems can uncover the weaknesses of the good fellow. It can tear them and it will compel them to kneel in front of evil. Only true good can withstand adversity. I will narrate two good people from the history without taking their names but that doesn’t mean I am making up the stories. It is true and really happened as per the historians. The true goodness existed.

The first instance is of a man who stood against the injustices of powerful ruler of a nation, a dictator who oppressed the weaker sections of the society and compelled them to change their religion to his. The true good man stood against him like his father did by giving up his life for few representatives from oppressed class to save their identity. He with his followers stood adamant and still sincerely to face the merciless dictator. He lost his sons and mother during battle and after it. A good man can remain good until he sees his family’s existence is endangered by the enemy. But this man gave up everything to stand to his ground from the starting till the end again the mighty forces. He believe to have the force of goodness which seemed less in numbers but the blessings from the Lord was uncountable.

The second instance is of a man who was related to the first true good man in a way that the former showed the latter the prevailing injustices in the nation. The second true good man took the blessings of the former and started his quest to fight the merciless with only five men besides him and five arrows in his quiver. Till he reached his destination, he was joined by few good men in his conquest. With his few followers and leap of faith he started winning every battle he fought and started growing stronger and mightier. He captured most of the part and established his rule. He ruled for a few years though and was captured and brought to the dictator’s capital in chains. He looked like a lion in captivity showcased to general public. This good man was still offered to convert to dictator’s religion and enjoy lifelong privileges. But he denied. The result, his men were slaughtered everyday in front of the public and him until he was left with his family. He had a infant baby. The barbarians didn’t killed the second true man first. But cut open the chest of his son in front of him. Took out his heart and put it in his father’s mouth forcibly. Still the true good warrior didn’t gave up and was killed mercilessly by the butchers.

This is what a true good people are like. They don’t fear the adversity of losing a war or danger on their family or danger on their own life. They accept it as a reparation they have to pay to stand against the mighty evil.

True meaning of Khalistan

Over the years, people have sabotaged and changed the meaning of the term ‘Khalistan’. The meaning literally is “Land of Pure”. And it is symbolic. It should not belong to a particular religion. But some greedy and selfish “sikh” separatists have given it a meaning equivalent to getting a separate nation for sikhs. Khalistan doen’t mean a place where people wear turbans and at the same time, have trimmed beards, drinking liquor, smoking cigarettes, chewing tobacco, eating pan masala, molesting or eve teasing women, encouraging abortions. If sikhs follow ‘Sikh Rehat Maryada’ (Sikh code of conduct) properly they can make their household a land of pure (Khalistan). Wearing a turban and going to Gurudwara doesn’t mean somebody is a sikh. It comes from inside, following the Guru’s teachings and principles of humanity makes people a true sikh. A land where every person can follow his/her own religion properly, without hurting the feelings of other culture and religion, and where people abide by the law of nature and humanity, is a land of pure. A land where people are morally upright and helps and supports the needy, is a land of pure.

Looking at present Punjab, no one can say it a land of pure or it is even a candidate to become one. High amount of drugs is consumed in this state, thanks to Pakistan. The militancy has done a great damage which was encouraged by Pakistan. And on top of that Punjab Government and administration, in the process of crushing militancy in the state, killed and arrested many innocent sikh youth, which again became an agony among the sikh community. The Punjabi NRI which include sikh and non sikhs are giving motivation and encouragement to such Khalistan movements under a propaganda and personal motives. They are damaging the symbolic authenticity of the word Khalistan, which I will say again means Land of Pure. The person who is pure (Khalis) will follow the law of humanity and will serve humanity. And the day everyone will do it regardless of his religion, the place will become a land of pure.
