Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,
An individual approached Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj (Rara Sahib Wale) and said “Sikhs are great” with the notion of suggesting that they are better than other religions. Sant Ji Maharaj in their whole life did not speak up against any race, religion, caste, creed or even individual. Upon hearing these words, Sant Ji Maharaj spent a whole hour in giving the individual reassurance that all of mankind is equal and that no single sect or faith is greater than another.
Sant Ji Maharaj brang up the fact that the same Gurbani we all bow to contains writings from Bhagats belonging to the Hindu and Muslim faith. Furthermore, Sant Ji Maharaj went on to describe the historic instances in which members of other faiths proved to be helpful to the Sikh faith in times of desperate need, for example – the Muslim brothers who assisted Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj when disguised as Uch Da Peer and Peer Budhu Shah who sacrificed his whole family lineage and followers for Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj.
The individual who had originally raised the point accepted his mistake and promised he would refrain from belittiling other religions in the future.
Please forgive us for any mistakes.
