Sikhs, the Defenders of Indian Dharma

FACT(Foundation Against Continuing Terrorism) India has produced a fantastic exhibition on  “Sikhs, The Defenders of Indian Dharma”. The pictorial exhibition depicts, the contribution of Sikhs to India, including the grave loses of Sikh Gurus in Mughal Rule and Great Sacrifices Sikhs have offered in the freedom fight and saving the country’s pride and prestige.

H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar inaugurates an exhibition on Sikh History at Bangla Sahib Gurudwara, New Delhi, India – 23rd January, 2008:-

Translated excerpts of his speech:-

The Nation is forgetting the contribution given by Sikhs. Today the corruption in country is because of lack of sacrifice. The youth in North India are taking drugs, alcohol, this is very disheartening. The exhibitions like these can inspire them to sacrifice and serve. 

If these historical facts are not reminded, then soon people will start questioning if this happened at all or not. So a reminder of history is necessary and it should be taught from Kashmir to Kanya Kumari. 

A glimpse of the pictures from the online exhibition available here.

“No nation can move forward, unless it squarely faces its past. The courage to remember helps us not to repeat the same mistakes and to build a better future for our children” says H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of the Art of Living.
