There is an atmosphere of joy in the country and the world even before and after Ram Lalla’s consecration on 22 January. Lakhs of devotees from India and abroad are coming to Ayodhya to have darshan of Ramlala. Not only the people who witnessed and participated in the rituals of Pran Pratistha held on January 22 at Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple, but also all those who watched this holy event on TV are fortunate. But also seen. After 5 centuries, people have established Lord Ram in the form of child Ram in their eyes and hearts and minds.
Punjab’s famous singer Sukhi Brar, who participated in the consecration ritual of Ram Lalla at Shri Ram Janmabhoomi temple, expressed her positive thoughts along with her personality.
Singer Sukhi Brar, who returned from Ayodhya, while narrating her experience, said that she never got as much respect in Punjab as she got in Ayodhya. Along with this, he also questioned the Shiromani Gurdwara Management Committee (SGPC) as to why it is so narrow-minded? Sukhi Brar said that if all Hindus and Muslims can come to Gurudwara Bangla Sahib and Sri Harmandir Sahib, then what objection can there be in Sikhs going to Ram Temple? He said that we are all one, politicians have created political division among all of us for votes. Sukhi Brar said that the biggest scripture in the world is Sri Guru Granth Sahib, but SGPC is using it only for money and politics. Considering how many years have passed, women are still not being given the right to do kirtan, but in Ayodhya even women were singing bhajans. He asked why SGPC does not open schools, colleges and hospitals at various places? Expressing her feelings, she said that when she was moving towards Ayodhya, she felt that some power was pulling her towards itself. She told that when she reached there with her car following Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi’s car, she told the people present there that she had come from Punjab. On this, people welcomed Waheguru ji by raising slogans of victory of Khalsa Waheguru ji. I think it would have been a big mistake in life if I had not gone there. There I felt as if I had gone to my maternal home. He said that generally guests are invited to big events, but no one asks them later. I was surprised to see the hospitality of the Uttar Pradesh government. Chief Ministers of many states were also sitting in the gallery where she was sitting. The surprising thing was that when I asked the young men who came near me repeatedly and asked for some food or drink, what he does, he told that he is an IAS officer and his responsibility here is to serve you. She said that we have seen many IAS and IPS officers in Punjab, some of whom she even knows personally, but they are full of ego. On the other hand, I was very happy to see the officials of Uttar Pradesh connected to the ground.
Punjabis are known as having open hearts and big minds. Because instead of rituals, narrow-mindedness and casteism, the Gurus had given the message to the Punjabis to see the divine form in everyone. By strengthening the humanitarian approach, he was taught to have love and kindness towards everyone. Punjabis pray for the well-being of Sarbat every morning and evening, but it is unfortunate that a section of Punjabis, following the path of narrow-mindedness and fanaticism, makes such statements every day which are tarnishing the image of Punjabis.
The way singer Sukhi Brar has made public her experiences after returning from Ayodhya, it is like a breath of fresh and clean air and is a relief. There is a need to reflect on what singer Sukhi Brar said. One can move forward only by abandoning narrow-mindedness.
Singer Sukhi Brar is thanked and congratulated for what she said, because she has presented the thinking of Punjabis in an appropriate manner.
