Phoolka takes a dig at BJP Govt 26 Jul 2014 | 12:37 pm

Ludhiana, Punjab: Aam Aadmi Party leader and senior advocate HS Phoolka said the threat issued by the BJP Government to invoke Article 356 was in violation of the principles laid down by the Supreme Court.

“The Supreme Court has held that every case where the directions of the Central Government are not followed by the state does not make out a case for dismissal of the state government and warrant action against the state government. It is only in a case of very serious nature where Article 356 needs to be invoked,” said Phoolka.

Hukumnama Darbar Sahib

Harmandir Sahib Hukumnama : Mon 28 July, 2014
He acts according to pre-ordained destiny, written by the Creator Himself. Emotional attachment has drugged him, and he has forgotten the Lord, the treasure of virtue. Dont think that he is alive in the world he is dead, through the love of duality. Those who do not meditate on the Lord, as Gurmukh, are not permitted to sit near the Lord. They suffer the most horrible pain and suffering, and neither their sons nor their wives go along with them. Their faces are blackened among men, and they sigh in deep regret. No one places any reliance in the self-willed manmukhs; trust in them is lost. O Nanak, the Gurmukhs live in absolute peace; the Naam, the Name of the Lord, abides within them. || 1 || THIRD MEHL: They alone are relatives, and they alone are friends, who, as Gurmukh, join together in love. Night and day, they act according to the True Gurus Will; they remain absorbed in the True Name. Those who are attached to the love of duality are not called friends; they practice egotism and corruption. The self-willed manmukhs are selfish; they cannot resolve anyones affairs. O Nanak, they act according to their pre-ordained destiny; no one can erase it. || 2 || PAUREE: You Yourself created the world, and You Yourself arranged the play of it. You Yourself created the three qualities, and fostered emotional attachment to Maya. He is called to account for his deeds done in egotism; he continues coming and going in reincarnation. The Guru instructs those whom the Lord Himself blesses with Grace. I am a sacrifice to my Guru; forever and ever, I am a sacrifice to Him. || 3 ||
