King Aurangzeb felt very happy on seeing such wonderfull and strange miracles shown by Baba Ram Rai. He asked his courtiers to treat Baba Ram Rai as a Royal Guest. But dreadfull miracles had frightened his ministers and courtiers. They were respecting him due to fear and terror. Within few days Baba Ram Rai become the hero of Delhi. All people were considering him Divine Prophet. For his residence a royal accommodation was provided. He was feeling so happy that he did not want to leave Delhi. To attend the Darbar was at his disposal. He was always welcomed there. When he used to enter the Darbar, courtiers were paying him homage in such a style as if he was the second Aurangzeb.
The Sikhs who had accompanied him, informed Guru Har Rai Ji about his miracles shown to Aurangzeb. The Guru had advised him not to make any miracle. But he had more than hundred such miracles. The Guru showed unhappiness about his this act. Guru Ji asked his Sikhs to bring him back without further delay. He told them that otherwise he would have to face dire consequences.
But next day the Guru heard another bad news. This news enraged Guru Har Rai Ji and he felt grieved. The Sikhs told Guru that Baba Ram Rai had changed the holy hymn of Guru Nanak Dev. He told that When Aurangzeb asked Baba Ram Rai to explain the meaning of this verse:
“Miti muslmaan ki perai paee kumiaar.
Ghar bhande ita keeaa jaldee kare pukaar.”
Baba Ram Rai instead of explaining the meaning of the hymn, changed the word Muslmaan to ‘be-eemaan’. He told that Musalmaan word did not exist in their scriptures. The Guru did not write clay of Mohammdan but he wrote clay of ‘Dishonest’. Though King Aurangzeb was satisfied by changing the word of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, but on hearing this Guru Har Rai Ji felt very uncomfortable. His son had deceived him. Before he left for Delhi the Guru had told him specially not to be indulge in miracle -making at the instance of the king as it was against the Sikhs faith. He had also cautioned him that he must not compromise the sanctity of Sikh Scriptures. But what he actually feared that happened at Delhi. With a view to please the King Baba Ram Rai started making miracles one after the other. Then he changed the verse of Guru Nanak saying that it was a mistake committed by the calligraphist.
But as he possessed great miracle-making power, he could have shown Aurangzeb the clay of Mohammdan burning in the potter’s kiln.
But all those happenings deeply distressed Guru Har Rai Ji. He said that he would have nothing to do with Baba Ram Rai. He disowned him as his son and asked not to show his face to him at all.
In order to inform the Sikhs about the new developments, Guru Ji sent messages to all important Sikhs to reach at kiratpur. All the masands were also called for. Addressing the congregation Guru said, “My son Ram Rai has become a tool in the hands of Aurangzeb. He has forgotten the discipline of a true Sikh. As you might be knowing Ram Rai has shown miracles to Aurangzeb without paying heed to our device. But that wrong doing be might have pardoned. But he had done a great blunder. He changed the hymns of Guru Nanak. This I can’t bear. The hymns of Guru Nanak are steady and irrevocable. Evan a Guru can’t replace or change a single word of the holy verses. Ram Rai has become a beggar of Aurangzeb. He has become so coward and renegade that he is not fit to be called a Sikh. The wealth of Mughals has corrupted his brain. Now you should inform him that I do not want to see him. You all are also advised not to meet him. You should not accommodate him. He should not be given any type of gift. I have excommunicated him. He is not our son now. Now he has no relation with the Guru’s house. Now he is not fit to lead the Sikhs. So I have decided to offer the Guruship to Harkrishan my younger son. Though he is very young, But he is so intellectual that he is fit for this job. He is very brave and fearless and can face any type of challenge.”
When Baba Ram Rai heard this news that Guru had decided to offer the Guruship to Sri Harkrishan then he realized his blunder mistake. He went to kartarpur and met his uncle Baba Dhir Mal. Baba Dhir Mal met Guru Har Rai Sahib and tried to advise him that he should offer the Guruship to Ram Rai. He told him that Ram Rai was owner of spiritual powers and was fit for the job of Guru.
Guru Har Rai Ji declined the advise of Baba Dhir Mal. He informed Dhir Mal that he was excommunicated Ram Rai and he had no relations with him. Then Baba Ram Rai met Aurangzeb and informed him about the verdict of his father. He told him that Guru’s wrath was due to his friendship with the king. Aurangzeb offered him a piece of land in doon area. Baba Ram Rai accepted the offer greatfully. But he resolved to stay at Delhi in order to persuade Guru Har Rai Ji to change his decision. He presumed that he would be able to do it through royal pressure.
