Guru Nanak Dev
There is No Hindu There is No Muslim
This pronouncement was substantial as it referred to the day and age in which Guru Nanak Dev Ji lived Hindus and Muslims of India constantly and bitterly fought each other over the issue of religion. The Guru meant to emphasise that, ultimately, in the eyes of God, it is not religion that determines a persons merits, but ones actions. The Guru witnessed the Mughal invasion of India, and saw the horrors inflicted upon the common people by the invaders. Guru Nanak Dev Ji did not hesitate to speak up against injustice.
The kings are ravenous beasts, their ministers are dogs.
The Age is a Knife, and the Kings are Butchers.
In this dark night of evil, the moon of righteousness is nowhere visible.
