Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Bani Disrespected at various UK events

April 24, 2009
Source: Khalsa Press

LONDON, UK (KP) - Several observant members of the Sikh sangat in United Kingdon reported that in past few months, several attempts have taken place in some parts of the country in which blasphemous statements have been used to address dhur-ki-bani of Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

During a recently held nagar kirtan in United Kingdom, a group of misguided youth passed out flyers with bani of Dasam Granth Sahib. Luckily, local sangat took notice of the incident and stopped the youth from spreading venom. Although these youth had provided their email and phone number on the flyer, they have refused any possibility of discussion on the subject.

The individuals responsible for misconduct misquoted a few panktees from some charitars from Dasam Granth Sahib. Interestingly, they also attacked banis such as Krishna Avtar and Chaubees Avtar but failed to cite any questionable verses. Panktees from the Charitropankhyan are often misquoted and cited out of context. Anything can be taken out of context if someone wants to be mal-intentioned. If anyone wishes to question any parts of Dasam Granth Sahib, they need to refute starting from the beginning, not randomly or from the end.

Example of a misleading leaflet handed out at a UK Nagar Kirtan:

In addition, the mischievous persons responsible for such wrongdoing have also labeled various Panthic Intsitutions (Akal Takht Sahib, Damdami Taksal, Nihung Singh Dals) as affiliates of the Rashtriya Swamsevak Sangh. The sangat appealed to organizers/committee members of various Gurdwara Sahibs, schools, nagar kirtans and smagams to not allow such acts in the future.

While Dasam Granth Sahib remains a unique scripture of the Khalsa, some notorious individuals including Gurbaksh Kala Afghana, Ragi Darshan Singh and Inder Ghaggha are touring international countries to spread venom against Panthic traditions. While Kala Afghana has been excommunicated by Akal Takht Sahib, both Ragi Darshan Singh and Inder Ghaggha have been warned to stop propaganda against Dasam Granth Sahib.

Not very long ago, a conclave of almost all eminent Panthic organizations held a convention at Damdama Sahib in which several resolutions were passed to ensure reverence of Dasam Granth Sahib. The program was organized mainly to challenge Ragi Darshan Singh to sit down with his Sikh brethren however despite the invitation being provided months ago, the Ragi notoriously declined to attend. Having failed at accepting the challenge to Panthic scholars, the Ragi has continued with his international tours where he preaches against Dasam Granth Sahib.

Panthic sevadars stressed that as member of the Sikh community, we must not forget that:

1. Akal Takht Sahib is the most superior temporal authority of the Sikh Nation

2. Anti-Dasam Granth Sahib personnel have been labeled as mischievous by a hukamnama of Akal Takht Sahib Ji.

3. Panthic scholars including Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha, Bhai Randhir Singh, Bhai Pyara Singh Padam, Giani Gurbachan Singh Bhindrawale, Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale respected the Dasam Granth Sahib as being penned by Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

4. Historical hukamnamas and life stories mention the importance of Dasam Granth Sahib for the Sikh Nation.

Misguided individuals, such as the ones handing out anti-Dasam Bani leaflets should first fully understand the concept and contents of the Dasam Granth Sahib before openly questioning them. There is nothing wrong in raising questions, however posing questions without seeking answers does not do justice. At the same time, Sikh organizations based in United Kingdom and other parts of the world also need to stop this mis-guided parchar.
