Communal fabric remains intact in worst times in Punjab

Aval allah noor upae-aa, Kudrat key sabh bandey, ek noor tey sabh jag upjia-aa, kaun bhaley ko mandey (First Allah created the Light. Then by his creative power, he made all mortal beings. From that one light, the entire universe came into being. So, who is good and whos bad, indeed?)

By Ravinder Singh Robin

Amritsar, May 28 : "Aval allah noor upae-aa, Kudrat key sabh bandey, ek noor tey sabh jag upjia-aa, kaun bhaley ko mandey ("First Allah created the Light. Then by his creative power, he made all mortal beings. From that one light, the entire universe came into being. So, who is good and who's bad, indeed?)

In this hymn, Guru Nanak preached on the equalities in society. There is much need to spread this message in modern society which has been derailed, say some philanthropists in Punjab.

"The present state of affairs in Punjab is really on wrong path and there is no doubt that Punjab has witness more worse situations than now," the philanthropists said.

"Punjab's communal fabric is so strong that no communal clashes took place in Punjab ever in the recent history. This is different reason that national media had projected the situation in Punjab volatile to sensationalize the issues and people outside Punjab were given an impression that Hindus are not safe in Punjab," said Dr. A.S.Mahal, a philanthropist.

Devotees all through the years are thronging City temples including Durgiana Temple and the Golden Temple, said Mahal, adding that both communities pay respect to each other's religious places and take part in religious functions.

There were several examples where Sikhs protected Hindus in difficult times, particularly in villages in Amritsar and Tarn Taran districts, he said.

Perhaps, the tough times have taught Sikhs and Hindus to live together in peace and harmony saidProfessor Darbari Lal, another eminent philanthropist and historian.

He said that though some handful of anti social elements always looking for an opportunity to break the Hindu - Sikh ties but their ill minded designs were always made unsuccessful by the Hindu Sikh society.

He said that even during the 1980s, unscrupulous elements from outside India were active to disrupt the Punjab but it was the bond of society that failed them to achieve their goal to break the society in Punjab.

Remembering the black days of Punjab, a senior journalist Ashok Soni said that he has been reporting the Punjab for last more than 30 years but hadn't seen any instance of Hindu-Sikh friction ever.

He said even the bonds between tow becomes more stronger then ever. Soni said that Sikhs and Hindu's have been living in perfect harmony in Punjab despite tumultuous times and the state has witnessed during the heydays of militancy. No designs of disruptive forces could break their relationship as still marriages are being solemnized between the two communities, he added.

However, the philanthropists took a serious note of recent ill-informed reporting in electronic media regarding the crises in Punjab. They suggested that before reporting the Punjab, do understand the psyche and dharma of the people of Punjab.
