“Shri Tegh Bahadur simriaye… Ghar nau nidh aavay dhaae”
On the sacred Martyrdom Day of Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji, the pop singer Daler Mehndi plans to visit the Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib. The martyrdom of the ninth Sikh Guru Tegh Bahadur is a very important day in the religious calendar of the Sikhs. The occasion is commemorated on November 24 by Sikhs all around the world. Daler Mehndi plans to be available at the Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib tomorrow i.e. 24th November 2011 as his humble tribute to the unmatched sacrifice of the Ninth Sikh Guru.
It’s time for Mehndi to be a part of this sacred occasion of Martyrdom Day of Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji, looking for delighted evening, and to seek the blessings of his gurus. He plans to make it a special occasion with the great feeling of being one with all and everyone!!
Daler Mehndi has crooned two songs including a devotional Shabad ‘Dukaalang Pranaasi’ for the extraordinary movie “I am Singh’ has a wonderful meaning to it stating “Shahidi of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji would always be remembered in the history..”
“Give up your head, but forsake not those whom you have undertaken to protect. Says Tegh Bahadur, sacrifice your life, but relinquish not your faith”
Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji sacrificed his existence for the freedom of devotion of another religion. His unique sacrifice would always be remembered. Never in the records of history has Guru of one religion sacrificed his life to save the freedom of another religion. No one has ever done such a unique sacrifice as did Guru Tegh Bahadur.
Guru Gobind Singh Ji in his bani summarizes the supreme sacrifice:
“Tilak Janju Raakha Prabh Taak, Kino Bado Kalu Mai Saaka” (Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib’s sacrifice is an epitome and exemplary which saved the tilak and janehu (two sacred elements of hindu faith) and all hindu faith in India)”
