Sat Sri Akal to all, I just wanted to share a question with my brothers and sisters and hoped you too could help shed some light on a question which has been bugging me. I am a firm believer that Sikhi is a logical and scientific faith - (scientific in the mechanical and deeper understanding of life sense). Now this may sound like I have something against Baba Deep Singh - but I ASSURE you that I am merely trying to shed some light on our history in a common-sense approach. We all hear of how Baba Deep Singh Ji attained Matyrdom by a severe blow being struck over his head thereby decapitating him. Further to that, "by divine miracle" Baba Deep Singh manages to pick up his hand and fight and then drop his head at the point now famously marked at Harmandir Sahib. I wanted to ask whether this is really true? In logic, no where in Guru Granth or even in the circumstances of the Gurus themselves did Mircales ever exist. Guru Arjan Dev and many of our other Gurus took matyrdom without any display of performing miracles. Our Guru's denounced such acts. The point I am trying to make is after reading some literature from a book by Cpt. Nashib Singh Dhillon - his explanation made all the sense to me. He goes onto explain that Baba Deep Singh suffered a severe INJURY, which was more than a mortal wound and would have killed any other. With this near mortal injury, Baba Deep Singh continued to act with strength and ultimately fell at the point now marked at Harmandir Sahib. This is a much clearer and logical picture to me about the version of events. I am sorry to say this but it does annoy me to see pictures of Baba Deep Singh putting down his own head then paying obediance to it - our Guru's didn't even do such things. I simply think a little more logic on the subject adds clarity - and Baba Deep Singh IS STILL the Amazing Saint-Soldier we ALL should aspire to be - as his story just says it all. Please let me hear your thoughts on this - we are all Sikhs and so just learning here. llol Yours humbly, Gurdip Chana.
