Amritsar Sahib: Under Kirpal Singh Badungar the Shiromani Gurdwraa Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) seems to have taken up the task of promoting the Sikh figures, approved by the Indian state as Sikh Heroes among the masses. and for that purpose a portrait of Indian Air Force Marshal Arjan Singh Lt Gen Jagjit Singh Arora and Lt Gen Harbaksh Singh have been put up at the Central Sikh Museum, Amritsar.
Talking about the above said three Indian army officers SGPC Chief Kirpal Singh Badungar in his interaction with the media tried to reciprocate the salaried government employees of the Indian State with the self-less Khalsa Spirit of an ideal Sikh Soldier and said ” the Khalsa warriors has always stood firm with their high heads to protect the nation in the need of the hour and have created history out of it.
“It is due to the sacrifices and valor of these brave men that Punjab is a part of Indian union”, he said. “Sikh Gurus has always raised their voice against tyranny and injustice had have inculcated the spirit of freedom and fearlessness among the Sikh masses, Prof Kirpal Singh Badungar said.
Furthermore, the SGPC chief maintained that the main intention to install these portraits inside the Central Sikh Museum was to inspire the present as well as future generation to take inspiration from these Sikh heroes and learn to serve with full Sikhi Saroop in each and every field of life.
Interestingly, SGPC chief Kirpal Singh Badungar was left red faced and perturbed when the mediapersons reportedly asked him that why wasn’t he attending the Bhog of Shaheed Bhai Beant Singh which was in progress inside the Darbar Sahib complex, but was instead busy unveiling the portraits of Indian heroes that too of the same Army which invaded the very Darbar Sahib.
It is worth mention here that the above quoted war of 1965 and 1971 were fought with the agenda of safeguarding the interest of a repressive Indian state and its Brahmanic masters. Both Lt. Gen Jagjit Singh Arora and Marshal Arjan Singh were following the directives and serving their political masters of that time. Categorically speaking their is no contribution made by them towards Sikh panth, SGPC chief must make it clear as on what basis did he went ahead and installed their portraits.
The Central Sikh museum hosts the photos and portraits of those Sikh personalities who have tendered Sewa to the Sikh Panth. Sewa, in Sikhi, is self-less service done without any reward or pay. Officials of Indian forces, whose portraits were installed in the Central Sikh Museum today by SGPC were paid employees of the Indian state and their ‘services’ were toward the Indian State, not for the Sikh Panth. Moreover, their services does not fall under the category of Sewa as they were paid the Indian state for their job. It was totally out of point to make the Central Sikh Museum to host photos/portraits of these Indian soldiers.
