Sardarji ke 12 baje

Its a very common to tease a Sardar saying “Sardarji baraah baj gaye”. I never knew the truth behind the phrase, do Sardars go mad at 12? Then I was told the following incident by someone.


A very busy local railway station in Mumbai. An elderly Sardar with chest long white beard, turban and Kripan was waiting for the train. Besides him there was a group of college students standing. Co incidently it was 12 O clock in the watch.

The students in their ‘Jawani Ka Josh’ started teasing the old man saying “Sardarji Barah baj gaye”, “oye Paji, barah baj gaye”. The old man was quit and still. What could he do after all? Nevertheless his silence bothered the youth all the more.

After some time the old man walked to the group of the young students. He called one of them near him. The group was now a bit scared while they also started preparing for an argument with the old man.

Do you know the meaning of phrase “Sardarji ke Barah baje?” asked the Sardar in his composed voice.

“No, I dont know.” The guy who came forward replied with arrogance.

“If you dont know then let me tell you the meaning of that phrase son. Then probably you will understand what that phrase means to a Sardar. ” The people who were witnessing the whole drama were now a bit enthusisatic to hear from Sardar the meaning of that famous phrase. The young guys judging the strength of the crowd around them were a bit more polite.

People who were busy jumped into the coming trains and people who were free came to hear the Sardar.

In 17th Century the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb rules the Delhi. He was a radical Islamist. He carried out conversion of Hindu’s on a mass scale. Those who resisted were killed after exposing them to tortures. The Kashmiri Pandits ran to Guru Teg Bahaddoorji for help. Guruji was not strong enough to fight againt the Mughal. He went to Aurangzeb and proposed that  if the Mughals could convert him to Islam all Hindu’s in India will convert to Islam. Thinking it will be a easy job Auranzeb tried everything to convert him to Islam. Guruji was made to suffer all sort of pain. When the emperor threatened that every piece of skin on his body will be ripped off if he doenst convert, guruji himself ripped of his own skin. The frustrated Emperor assasinated Guruji in Chandani Chauk Delhi.

Interesting is the fact that the Indian Government has proudly named a road after Aurangzeb but there is no road named after Guru Teg bahaddoor.

No one cam forward to take Gurji’s body fearing the emperor. Guruji’s son Guru Gobind Singh, founded Sikhism just to build a breed of people that will not fear anyone and will protect Hinduism from Islamic rulers. Initially the Sikh population  was very little. The tradition was that people in Sindh would give their elder son to Sikhism.

During this time many invaders invaded  India for wealth and women. Nadir Shah Invaded India in 1739 and took 2200 women with him. The Commander in Chief of Sikh Jassaa Singh heard this and with his few man he decided to stop Nadir Shah. Since his forces were limited he would attack Nadir’s army at midnight. He managed to free all the women.

Sikhs protected the honor of Hindu women from Abdali and Irani using the same trick.  It became an legend that the Sardar’s get special power at midnight to protect the religion. Whenever people feared Muslim Attacks they took help from Sardars and Sardars always fought for honor and glory of this land.

The old sardar looked at the crowd gave a smile and stopped.

“So my son , when you were shouting Sardarji Barah baj gaye for so long, muze laga shayad apaki maa behan khatare mein hai, isliye mein chala ayaa”.

  1. i believe that this hindu religion is the worst religion in the world.These are mainly labourers from the beginning.EVERYTHING they tell about their history is 100% FAKE.i believe that they have no real history other than being labourers.

    and these hindus are not even thankful to sikhs as they have always been saved by sikhs from any kind of trouble from outside of india.

  2. shaunkiz :
    hahaha…agar sardaro ne hinduo ko mughalo se bachaya na hota to aaj hindustan mein koi hindu na hota acha hota agar tab na bachaya hota aaj yeh din to na dekhne padte..i shame of you…

  3. it is really need to educate the people about sikhs and their great history because they are distinct and unique in appearance.

  4. @john….sikh brains are same as others. Bt d nly diffrnce is dat dey do evrythng wid presence of mind n smartness. Deres no case, dat our mind wrk nly after 12. It works all d tym. No clock’s fitted inside, stating dat it has 2 wrk nly fter 12.!!!

  5. Really it is shameful that we throw stones at each other. As per the saying of the old man sikhs are special group of hindus formed to protect hindus so it says that we are formed to save ourselves so there is no point in fighting ourselves. if it is not to be believed even then punjabis are proud indians and they are very much part of our culture and they are friends to hindus, and they treat india with respect and protect and love it they are true indians in all respects as we hindus are. so to disintegrate is not fair and also punjabis commenting on hindus is also not fair, as we all belong to same family. i just wanted to tell that it is my country as much as it is ur country and vice versa so it is not fair to fight on that. some fools do pass comments on sikhs and hindus, it is shame for them but i am proud to be an indian first and a hindu but am a sikh at heart also i dont mind to be a hindu or sikh as both love india an protect it equally so there is not difference between hindus and sikhs. i hope u all understand and dont get exited and should not throw stones at each other because of some misunderstood fools they need to understand the facts and respect each other and i hope each other

  6. i am hindu and i respect sikh. sikh are great people, plz dont get angry bcos of kise chutiye ne ye kha ki 12 baj gaye. plz dont think that kise hindu ne ye kha h balki ap ye soche koi chutiya gandu bhok raha h.

  7. @Shaunkiz……..if Hindus were labourers, so were you. Stupid, who doesn’t even know about the greatness and single thing about Hindu religion also their history, that fool (Shaunkiz) is commenting as same as morons do on internet. Sikh’s history is respectable and praise-full, no doubt but some sikh stupid people like (Shaunkiz) should remember that “Respect is on its own, respect is not meant to be taken forcibly”. And phrase “12 baj gye” does not relate to the story has been told above. Its a rumor.

  8. All FAKE propogated by hindu pandits against Aurangzeb Aalamgir……….How lier the hindus are.

  9. @KeepitReal…. How far you are hurt by Hindus…. I can understand… Hahaha… Aurangzeb… Sucks!
