12'O clock - The True Story

During 17th Century, when Hindustan was ruled by Mughals, all the Hindu people were humiliated & were treated like animals. Mughals treated the Hindu women as there own property & were forcing all Hindus to accept Islam & even used to kill the people if they were refusing to accept. That time, the ninth Guru, Sri Guru Teg Bahadarji came forward, in response to a request of some Kashmir Pandits to fight against all these cruel activities. Guruji told the Mughal emperor that if he could succeed in converting him to Islam, all the Hindus would accept the same.

But, if he failed, he should stop all those activities. The Mughal emperor happily agreed to that but even after lots of torture to Guruji & his fellow members he failed to convert him to Islam & Guruji along with his other four fellow members, were tortured & sacrificed their lives in Chandni Chowk. Since the Mughals were unable to convert them to Islam they were assassinated.

Thus Guruji sacrificed his life for the protection of Hindu religion. Can anybody lay down his life & that too for the protection of another religion? This is the reason he is still remembered as "Hind Ki Chaddar", shield of India. For the sake of whom he had sacrificed his life, none of the them came forward to lift his body, fearing that they would also be assassinated .

Seeing this incident the 10th Guruji, Sri Guru Gobind Singhji (Son of Guru Teg Bahadarji) founder of khalsa made a resolution that he would convert his followers to such human beings who would not be able to hide themselves & could be easily located in thousands.

At the start, the Sikhs were very few in numbers as they were fighting against the Mughal emperors. At that time, Nadir Shah raided Delhi in the year 1739 & looted Hindustan & was carrying lot of Hindustan treasures & nearly 2200 Hindu women along with him. The news spread like a fire & was heard by Sardar Jassa Singh who was the Commander of the Sikh army at that time. He decided to attack Nadir Shah's Kafila on the same midnight. He did so & rescued all the Hindu women & they were safely sent to their homes.

It didn't happen only once but thereafter whenever any Abdaalis or Iranis had attacked & looted Hindustan and were trying to carry the treasures & Hindu women along with them for selling them in Abdal markets, the Sikh army although fewer in numbers but were brave hearted & attacked them at midnight, 12 O'clock & rescued women.

After that time when there occurred a similar incidence, people started to contact the Sikh army for their help and Sikhs used to attack the raider's at Midnight , 12 O'clock . Nowadays, these "smart people" & some Sikh enemies who are afraid of Sikhs, have spread these words that at 12 O'clock, the Sikhs go out of their senses.
