STATE TIMES NEWS Samba: Delivering his holy sermons on the occasion of 621st Parkash Utsav of Sant Kabir at Sant Ashram Ranjri, here, Madhu Param Hans Maharaj, the spiritual head of Sahib Bandgi Panth, said that there are many superstitions about Kabir in the minds of people. “These superstitions and wrong notions have been spread by the hypocrites to defame Kabir,” he said and added, “At some places Kabir has been described as the offspring of Neeru and Neema while at other places Kamal and Kamali have been shown as his children. The Pakhandis have also described him as a low caste Muslim simply to prevent people from following his path.” “Kabir was given many tortures and about 52 times he was awarded death punishment which forced him to perform miracles many a time. But these Pakhandis concealed all these miracles cleverly to prevent the people at large to know of them,” Madhu Param Hans said. Kabir has been described as the ‘Sant Samrat’ because it is him who for the first time talked about Amarlok, he said. “He performed his last miracle in the very presence of lakhs of people. When the time to return to his Dham came, he left Kashi for Magghar. King Bir Singh Baghel of Kashi and Pathan Bijli Khan of Awadh had a quarrel over the last ceremonies of the dead body of Kabir. Both were the disciples of Sahib ji and each of them wanted to perform the last rites according to his own religion. The quarrel took the form of a battle. It was decided that the winner would take the dead body of Kabir for the last rites. Swords were drawn on both sides. But in the meantime, Kabir ji performed a miracle. There was a strange sound and a strange and dazzling light. When the sheet was removed, there was no dead body to be seen. There were only lotus flowers that the people had offered to him. In this way Kabir ji cleared all the superstitions and fictitious stories spread against him. But later the hypocrites concealed these facts as well,” Madhu Param Hans said.
