hters-in-law, that they get into carriages with their teachers, go to Shali-mar Gardens, bathe in the tank, sit at table and eat, and thenmake a quantity of tea to fly.t At Ludhiana, Amritsar, Lahore, Sialkote, and other placeshow many converts have the missionaries made in the surround-ing country! At Ludhiana two Afghan princesses have be-come Christians, and have been sent to Massouri. Sometimes wehear a daughter of a lamhiddr has become a Christian, and thenthat a Mohammedan woman has married a black Karain.J Wecertainly hear of such things, but they produce no effect on us.O believers! if you have any love for your religion, any respectfor your ancestors, think how this thing may be stopped. Giveyour money, establish your own schools, where your daughterscan be taught what is necessary for them to know. * The Quran is not allowed in any mission school. t This accusation is a mistake. t A term of contempt for East Indian Christians. 408 LIFE AND LIGET. ottttjj l^aple^ leptJJtn^nJ.

32 years ago today, during the annual Amritsar Akhand Keertan Samagam, Asa Ki Vaar was interrupted by news that the narkdhari leader, Gurbachan Singh, was leading a procession through the streets of Sri Amritsar Sahib.
Gurbachan SIngh had insulted Guru Sahib repeatedly, even putting his foot on Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.
Upon hearing that the narkdharis were having a procession, Bhai Fauja Singh ji asked if anyone wanted to join him in a peaceful protest against the narkdharis. More than 200 Singhs and SInghnia joined him.
Upon reaching Guru Ramdas Niwas, they were told that they procession had ended and they should go home.
The Fauj went to the place where the narkdharis had held their rally for a peaceful protest. When they arrived, they were stopped by police. The narkdharis had followed them and were shouting insults and taunts at the Gursikhs. Again the police told them to leave, as the procession was over. Suddenly a force of hundreds of armed narkdharis charged the peaceful Gursikhs.
As the police watched, they attacked the Gursikhs with swords, guns, bombs, and acid. Eventually the police joined in, shooting at the peaceful Gursikhs rather than stopping the attack.
Thirteen Gursikhs got shaheed that day. This was the rallying call that caused many Sikhs to become aware of the oppression directed at them by the Indian Government.
Please take a moment of your day to remember these shaheeds and their sacrifice for the panth.
