"Jagat Jutt Tobacco Bikhiya da Tiag Karna"
These words of Guru Hargovind Singh were included in the order of Sikhism. It means that the lies of the world, tobacco, poison should not be consumed. All these should be abandoned. There is a town of Naushera Virkan between Gujranwala and Sheikhupura in Pakistan, in which there is a village named Mattu Bhaike. There is a glowing gurudwara like a pearl among many houses here. It was a gurudwara, considered very important for the Sikhs before the partition, which was made by the Sikhs living nearby in 1940 in honor of the sixth Guru, Guru Hargovind Singh. It is said that Guru Hargovind Singh had once passed through this place and at this place he told the damage caused by tobacco and asked his followers to avoid its intake.
Maharaj under the rule of Ranjit Singh Sikhs became very effective in Punjab and many religious places of Sikhs were built in the entire province. Sikhs lived in good numbers in Mattu Bhaike, Naushera Viran and surrounding areas. After the partition, he migrated from here and his relatives living here in the vacant houses left here settled. According to the report, some people of Rashid's family, who took care of here, went to Pakistan at the time of partition. Rashid does not know much about his family members in India, but he says that he had heard the name of Ambala city with his ancestors. They protect this gurudwara and call it a "mosque of Sikhs".
This gurudwara made of marble has done better glass work. Beautiful carvings are done on the wooden doors. The paintings on the walls have been blurred over time. Even after being muddy from outside, the gurudwara from inside still looks quite beautiful. The gurudwara on the ground floor has four entrances. There is a big hall in the middle. At the same time, the stairs go up from the right side. There is a room and dome above, which has been done excellent workmanship. Looking at the building, it seems that there is no looting here.
A local citizen quoted a report that he has been living here for centuries. His grandfather was Sikh, who later adopted Islam. However, his grandfather's brother Sikh remained. Everyone lived peacefully before partition. We decided to stay here, but after rioting in the nearby village, our Sikh relatives and family decided to cross the border. Till his return, he handed over his property to us. Nobody returned. That night of partition, even today, the eyes of many people present there moist. Ijaz says that his grandfather used to show him the keys of the houses in childhood, which his friend Inderjeet had wrapped him in his mother's shawl, which both of them called BG. His grandfather did not allow those things to touch anyone.Read more: Asia Cup 2022: Selectors gave big signs before Asia Cup, these 2 deadly players are returning after months
