The match was going on between India and Pakistan. It was the last over. Former Pakistani wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal was doing commentary on a Pakistani channel. While doing commentary, he said, 'It is 12 o'clock, anything can happen.' Another commentator said, 'The last over should not be given to a Sikh.' Cricketer Harbhajan Singh also criticized Kamran on this whole issue. Harbhajan wrote in his tweet, 'Kamran Akmal, shame on you… You should know about the history of Sikhs before opening your dirty mouth. You should be ashamed.'

What is the story behind '12 o'clock'…

In fact, what people consider a joke is the story of pride and bravery of the Sikhs. It is said that the Muslim invader Ahmed Shah Abdali was kidnapping many Hindu girls and women from their homes. He used to take these girls to the market of Ghazni to sell them. To save themselves from this terror of Abdali, the women had extended their hands to the Sikhs for protection. After this Sikh General Baba Jassa Singh Ahluwalia attacked at 12 midnight. It is said that through this attack Sikhs saved 2200 girls. They not only saved their lives but also sent them to their homes. After this Sikh Generals used to launch a front against atrocities at 12 midnight. After this campaign, fear about Sikhs spread among the Mughals. The fear spread in the camp of invaders like Abdali that 'It is 12 o'clock, be alert.' Because as soon as the clock struck 12, Sikhs used to protect their daughters and daughters-in-law.

Hopefully after knowing this truth you will understand that 12 o'clock is not a joke but a story of respect for Sikhs. Pakistani cricketers like Kamran Akmal may also feel a little ashamed and wiser.
