^ and the resident lame rod who has all the time in the world to comment on Indian issues, conveniently ignores this.. hypocrisy much? 

Dear, I am a man of limited abilities, limited time, limited energies. It is not possible for me to protest upon every Zulm in this world.

 

I see that many other respected members have already commented upon it and all of them are unanimous that it is an evil act by Pakistani Muslims to convert any Gurdwara into mosque. In presence of this unanimous opinion, nothing bad will happen even if I don't participate in this discussion as the truth has already been made clear. 

 

I try to use my limited energies and time where I see that an alternative opinion is of advantage so that we could learn from the differing opinions. 

 

I am all for interfering in any country by all the humans in this world, if it is violating the basic human rights in any way.  

 

That is why I want to make UNO and it's Human Rights department more and more stronger, so that it gets the right for direct interference in any country. 

 

That is why I strongly oppose Trump, while does not care for human rights in other countries. I am against Trump while he is destroying  the UNO. 

 

Civilised world should get united upon the human rights issues. This is the most important and useful tool to stop the Muslim fanaticism and will help to save the minorities in these Islamic countries.

Great Mughals lol, forget Islamists...even our libbus love them so much. Islamic age is golden as per NCERT history books, the names and deeds of these monsters shoved down the throats of our students. They aren't even taught about Mughal prince Dara Shikoh thanks to Sharia-Bolsheviks of JNU, AMU, Jamia....forget about dharmic/Indic legends and defenders of the motherland from barbaric invaders, apparently not worthy of respect compared to Aurangzeb/Taimur. A bloodthirsty savage like MB Tughluq is presented as a hopeless clown so that people don't question the genocidal streak of that maniac. No mention of Sikandar the Iconoclast cos then children will want to know the meaning of 'iconoclast' and its relevance to India. Till last year we had a stadium named after Firuz Shah Tughlaq who razed Puri's Jagannath temple to the ground and killed tens/hundreds of thousands of Hindus just for sport, how can people question this nonsense when these uncomfortable facts are absent in textbooks?

 

HRD Min proud to not have made a single change in textbooks in the last 6+ years. Secularism zindabad.

 

Do they glorify Hitler in Israel/Europe, or Japanese Army in Nanjing schools, is King Leopold a hero in Congo textbooks? Post '47 India is literally the most spineless country in the history of mankind, all thanks to the rotten Congressis and self-hating dharmics in the corridors of power. Won't even blame the Islamists, if there is an open goal of course they will make best use of it. 

 

About Bhai Taru Singh Ji

 

Tortured to death following the order of the then Mughal Governor of Lahore, scalp cut off from the skull so that hair never grew back. Then left to bleed to death, when he was 25 years old, younger than almost all of us here on ICF. But yay, Mughals gave us Taj Mahal, they gave us kofta, korma, sherwani, tombs/mosques, they were multicultural and respected all faiths....BS.

Zakariya Khan's mission against Sikhs

As the Prachin Panth Prakash narrates the story, Zakariya Khan once asked his men, "From where do the Sikhs obtain their nourishment? I have debarred them from all occupations. They realize no taxes. They do not farm, nor are they allowed to do business or join public employment. I have stopped all offerings to their gurdwaras, their places of worship. No provisions or supplies are accessible to them. Why do they not die of sheer starvation?"

Harbhagat, a sworn foe of the Sikhs, remarked, "There are Sikhs in this world who would not eat until they have fed their brethren. They may themselves go without food and clothing but cannot bear their comrades' distress. They would pass the winter by fireside and send them their own clothes. They would sweat to grind corn and have it sent to them. They would do the roughest chore to earn a small wage for their sake. They migrate to distant places to eke out money for their brothers in exile."

"In the village of Puhia in Majha," continued Harbhagat, "lives one Taru Singh. He tills his land and pays the revenue to the officials. He eats but little and sends what he saves to his brothers in the jungle. His mother and sister both toil and grind to make a living. They eat sparingly and wear the coarsest homespun. Whatever they save, they pass on to their fellow Sikhs."

Following the report by Akil Das, Bhai Taru Singh was arrested, imprisoned and tortured. Eventually, when presented before the governor, he defiantly greeted him with the Sikh salutation: Vahiguru ji ka Khalsa, Vahiguru ji ki Fateh. When charged with sedition, he stated :

"If we till your land, we pay the revenue. If we engage in commerce, we pay taxes. What is left after our payments to you is for our bellies. What we save from our mouths, we give to our brethren. We take nothing from you. Why then do you punish us?"

The governor was in a rage and pronounced the usual alternatives, Islam or death. To quote again from the Prachin Panth Prakash, Taru Singh calmly asked, "Why must I become a Mussalman (a Muslim person)? Do not the Mussalmans ever die?"

The exact method of his execution is somewhat ambiguous. However, it is believed that after a short period of imprisonment and torture, Singh was brought before the Khan and given the choice of converting to Islam or being executed. As a symbol of his conversion, Singh would have to cut off his Kesh and present it as an offering to the Khan. Upon his refusal, and in a public display, Bhai Taru Singh's scalp was cut away from his skull with a sharp knife to prevent his hair from ever growing back. This torturous act is believed to be carried out on 9th June 1745.

Bhai Taru Singh (c. 1720[1] – 1745) gave up his life for his religion, he chose to die than to give up his religion. The emperor was a Muslim and wanted everyone to become a Muslim.

 

Whatever Bhai Taru Singh saved, went to his Sikh brethren forced into exile by Islamic persecution. Bhai Taru Singh was spied upon by Akil Das (also known as Harbhagat Niranjania) of Jandiala, a Muslim informer. As the Prachin Panth Prakash narrates the story, Zakariya Khan once asked his men, “From where do the Sikhs obtain their nourishment? I have debarred them from all occupations. They realize no taxes. They do not farm, nor are they allowed to do business or join public employment. I have stopped all offerings to their gurdwaras, their places of worship. No provisions or supplies are accessible to them. Why do they not die of sheer starvation?”


Harbhagat, a sworn foe of the Sikhs, remarked, “There are Sikhs in this world who would not eat until they have fed their brethren. They may themselves go without food and clothing but cannot bear their comrades’ distress. They would pass the winter by fireside and send them their own clothes. They would sweat to grind corn and have it sent to them. They would do the roughest chore to earn a small wage for their sake. They migrate to distant places to eke out money for their brothers in exile.”

 

“In the village of Puhla in Majha,” continued Harbhagat, “lives one Taru Singh. He tills his land and pays the revenue to the officials. He eats but little and sends what he saves to his brothers in the jungle. His mother and sister both toil and grind to make a living. They eat sparingly and wear the coarsest homespun. Whatever they save, they pass on to their fellow Sikhs.”


Accompanied by twenty policemen and armed with orders of arrest of Bhai Taru Singh and his sister, Harbhagat Niranjania arrived in the village Puhla. Bhai Taru Singh said to the soldiers who had come to arrest him, “You have come to take me away on the orders of your master. I, bound by the orders of my Master, and cannot let you go without eating meals.” The soldiers acceded to his request and after taking meals, arrested him.

 

While Bhai Taur Singh was arrested and being taken away, the villagers protested and pleaded with the policemen to set Bhai Taru Singh free since he was a very noble, peace loving and kind hearted person. However, their plea fell on deaf ears.

While the police party was passing through village Bhadhana the Sikhs of the village tried to free Bhai Taru Singh by force, but Bhai Taru Singh persuaded them to desist from doing so.


When Bhai Taru Singh was caught along with his sister, many Sikhs offered to rescue them. However, Bhai Taru Singh said that he wanted to show Mughals that Sikhs are not afraid of death. After convincing him otherwise, Bhai Taru Singh allowed his sister to be rescued. Sikhs and other villagers paid bribes and his sister managed to escape. Though his sister’s freedom was secured, Bhai Taru Singh refused to seek a pardon. Bhai Taru Singh Ji had taken amrit from Bhai Mani Singh Ji and was much influenced by him.
Bhai Taru Singh was locked in a prison cell and was tortured in various ways. The more they tortured him, the more Bhai Taru Singh became steadfast in his resolve to protect his faith at all costs.

 

Ultimately, Bhai Taru Singh was produced before Zakariya Khan and greeted him with the Sikh greeting: Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. When charged with sedition, he said, “I earn my livelihood by cultivating my land and working hard. I make payments of land tax regularly, which can be verified from the records. If I engage in commerce, I pay taxes. What is left after our payments is for our bellies. What we save from our mouths, we give to our brethren. We take nothing from you. Why then do you punish us?”


Zakariya Khan was in a rage and could not think of an appropriate answer, Khan asked Bhai Taru Singh where he got his strength from. Bhai Taru Singh said he got his strength through his kesh (hair) as given by Guru Gobind Singh. Angered, Zakariya Khan then gave him the choice of converting to Islam or having his hair cut off and death by torture. Bhai Taru Singh calmly asked, “Will I never die if I become a Musalmaan? Don’t Muslims die? I am going to die one day, irrespective of my religion, so why should I desert my faith? of which I am extremely proud of? Why should I commit such an act as to fall out of favour of my beloved Guru? If God had wanted me to be a Muslim, I would have been born to Muslim parents. I love my faith more than my life and I will defend it at all costs.”

 

Zakariya Khan then said, ‘If you convert to Islam, you will be given a beautiful wife from a high Mughal family. You will be given riches and a high position. You will lead a life of happiness and pleasure. If you refuse, you hair will be forcibly cut off and you will be subjected to severe tortures. Finally, you will beheaded or broken on the wheel. Be well advised. Don’t throw away your life and all that it can offer you.’ Bhai Taru Singh firmly and defiantly refused to give up his faith. He said, ‘Even if I were offered kingship of the whole world, even if all the beauties of paradise were offered to me as my personal servants, even if the treasure of the entire world were placed at my feet, I would not give up my religion. It is far more precious and dear than all these. I would not let my hair be cut, not even a single hair. I am prepared to die. May God and the Guru let me die with my hair all intact.’

 

Khan called a barber to cut Bhai Taru Singh’s hair. However, when the barbers tried to cut Bhai Taru’s hair it was as hard as iron. Bhai Taru Singh said, “I have kept my faith with my hair”. The barber refused to continue trying to cut Bhai Taru’s kesh so Zakariya Khan called a cobbler and ordered him to cut the scalp of Bhai Taru Singh with his axe. Amidst the torture Bhai Sahib could only be heard reciting Japji Sahib.

Why should India even care about this? I'm wondering what those so called Khalistanis would feel about this.

Cos India has moral duty to all non Muslims who were left in Pakistan by Nehuru and Jinnah.Since their Qaede Azam's terrorists broke the promise, we are obligated to bring down those terrorist (like US and world faught ISIS). Unfortunately we havent got the muscel

Where is our resident @Alam_dar who day in and out create  threads against BJP or show super active participation, and then would go MIA or some superficial cliche comments on such issues to brush it under the carpet.

He is out there dreaming of a Hindu Rashtra which will send millions of poor Muslims out of India,

Although Pakistan was founded as a separate state for Muslims in the Indian subcontinent in 1947, it remained a Dominion in the British Commonwealth and did not immediately become an Islamic state. Although the 1949 Objectives Resolution envisaged an official role for Islam as the state religion, the state retained the most of the laws that were inherited from the secular British legal code that had been enforced by the British Raj since the 19th century.

In 1956, the state adopted the name of the "Islamic Republic of Pakistan", declaring Islam as the official religion, but did not take any further measures to adopt Islamic laws. The country's military rulers General Ayub Khan (1958–1969) and General Yahya Khan (1969–1971) continued a secularist tradition and repressed much of Islamist political activism.

 

Does the above mean that non-Muslims who remained in Pak got duped in 1956 :hmmmm2:
