The Mystique Of Sikhism - Book By K S Duggal

Introduction To Book 'The Mystique Of Sikhism' By K S Duggal
 

Mystique is much too abstract a term. To realize it, it is best to see it reflected in an appropriate event. Here is one: During with freedom struggle, a train loaded with freedom fighters was passing through Panja Sahib (Hasan Abdal), it was not to stop at Panja Sahib railway station. The Sikhs of the town came to know that the arrested patriots were without food and water. How could such a train be allowed to pass Panja Sahib where Guru Nanak had quenched the thirst of Bhai Mardana by performing a miracle? But the White Man insisted that the train must run through without stopping at any intervening station. The Sikhs must have the train stop and feed the patriots who were hungry and without water. They pleaded with the authorities without success. They must stop the train. They lay down on the railway line; men, women and children, hundreds of them. The train come whistling and screaming. It crushed one, two, three and came to a halt. The moment the train stopped the freedom fighters were fed and provided water.

This is just one incident reflecting the Sikh mystique. As the reader wades through the pages of the volume, he or she would come across a variety of them reflecting mystique of Sikh faith.
