New Delhi - Panthic Weekly has published a number of exposes detailing the association of several world renowned Sikh parchariks and Sikh organizations with the leadership of the right-wing Hindu terrorist organization, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). Well known Sikhs like Giani Thakur Singh, Prof. Manjit Singh, and Prof. Prem Singh Chandumajra of the Shiromani Akali Dal (Longowal-Badal) are all involved. Interestingly, the RSS has openly declared that Sikhs are part of the larger Hindu community, and that the Sikh Gurus are a continuation of the greater pantheon of Hindu Avatars, yet our shameless leaders continue to justify their links with these anti-Sikh elements.

Panthic Weekly (PW) originally published a string of articles under the RSS Woos Khalistanis/Sant Samaj series in early 2006 depicting the depth of the involvement of Sikh leadership with various pro-Hindutva organizations. Since then, our news staff has come into possession of more credible evidence that not only proves beyond any doubt the collusion that is happening within our corrupt leadership and Hindu supremacist organizations, but also reveals that the tentacles of India's Brahmin masters have successfully reached into the very innards of Akal Takht Sahib--controlling all those who are in its path.
"It (Hinduism) is like the boa constrictor of the Indian forests. When a petty enemy appears to worry it, it winds round its opponent, crushes it in its folds, and finally causes it to disappear in its capacious interior....Hinduism has embraced Sikhism in its folds; the still comparatively young religion is making a vigorous struggle for life, but its ultimate destruction is, it is apprehended, inevitable without State support." (Max Arthur Macauliffe, 1903)
As the fascist Rashtriya Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) organization realized that it was no longer possible to intermingle with Sikh leaders under the RSS banner, they have created offshoots such as the Rashtriya Sikh Sangat, Guru Granth Sahib Vichar Sanstha and Prerna.
Prerna : RSS by another name
The RSS offshoot known as PRERNA, depicts Sikh Gurus as Hindu Deities
The Prerna organization was created by the RSS with one thing in mind: To blend, muddle and taint Sikh practices and ceremonies into the folds of Brahmanism.
One of the promoters of Prerna is an individual associated with the company MDH (a worldwide spice manufacturer) who is also the key promoter and advertiser of 'Sacchi Sikhsha', the official monthly magazine and the daily 'Saach Kahoon' of the Gurmit Ram Rahim Sacha Sauda Cult.
Bhai Chaman Lal

The well known Bhai Chaman Lal of Delhi (now referred to as Bhai Chamanjit Singh Lal) is one of the main organizers of Prerna. PW is releasing photographs of a September 2006 Prerna function in which Chaman Lal openly inter-mixed Sikh and Hindu practices.

The souvenirs presented by Chaman Lal to VIP guests included framed photo of Sri Darbar Sahib, Amritsar, with images of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Hindu deity Ram Chander next to the Darshani Deordi.
Controversy since 2001
In 2001, the Badal installed Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib, Joginder Singh Vedanti, demanded clarification from Chaman Lal for performing at a Hindu Mandir known as the Sanatan Dharam Mahvir Temple in New Delhi. At that time Vendati described the act of performing Kirtan at the mandir with images and idols of Hindu deities of Shiva and Hanuman as anti-Panthic and in gross violation of the Sikh Maryada.
Interestingly, Chaman Lal received nothing more than a slap on the wrist for performing Gurbani Kirtan in front of a 70 foot tall statue of Hanuman at the Mandir, and more surprisingly Chaman Lal was allowed do Kirtan at Sri Darbar not too long afterwords, arousing the suspicions of various Panthic organizations who were familiar with the Chaman Lal controversy. It should be noted that SGPC still doesn't allow Gursikh Bibis to do Kirtan at Sri Darbar Sahib, yet individuals such as Chaman Lal are allowed.
Prerna 2007 : The Takht Jathedars Join In
Were the SGPC, Akal Takht Management and Chaman Lal all in this together? This year, this question has been finally answered. Chaman Lal and the Prerna organization took a bold step and invited Akal Takht Sahib "Jathedar" Joginder Singh Vedanti, along with Sri Darbar Sahib Head Granthi Giani Gurbachan Singh, and Keshgarh Sahib Jathedar Tarlochan Singh to their October 2nd function in Delhi.
Shockingly, these so-called Panthic Jathedars accepted the invitation and went to Delhi to attend this function in which rampant disrespect of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and the Sikh maryada openly occurred.

Mixed Signals : Lights outside the 2007 Prerna function
The outside entrance of the function has large lighted OM and Trishul Hindu symbols along with an Ek Oangkaar , clearly indicating that something was wrong at this function. The Jathedars ignored these warning signs, and went on to participate in this pro-RSS function.

These Jathedar shamelessly accepted these Hinduized mementos from Prerna in the presence of Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

Another interesting angle to this story is that the stage secretary for the 2007 Prerna function was Ravinder Sinh Khurana, who is ex-general secretary of the Delhi Gurdwara Management Committee, and a member of Akali Dal (Badal). PW has also learned that the RSS holds weekly shaksha meetings at Ravinder Khurana's residence in Delhi.

Reaction from Khalsa Press (Editorial)
When PW article Illustrated: Hinduization of Sikh Faith & History and the video 'Tabe Ross Jageo' were disseminated in 2005 there was large scale outrage in the Sikh community when they learned how the RSS was mixing Sikh and Hindus symbols in order to brainwash Sikhs and water down the religion.
Two years later, it is now our so-called Jathedars and Parchariks who are violating Sikh tenants and promoting the mixture of Sikhi with Hindu idols and deities.
How can our Jathedars and Singh Sahibs even attend functions where chairs are placed in front of Guru Granth Sahib Ji? Why did they not protest the placement of Hindu images plastered across the venue?
We have come a long way from the days of Akali Phoola Singh Jee who stood up to the emperor of Punjab, Maharajah Ranjit Singh, and ordered him 50 lashes punishment. Now our "Jathedars"--who are such only in name--run around like leashed puppies in the hands of their Hindu masters.
They have forgotten the sacrifices made a century ago, the Sikhs who gave their lives to free Darbar Sahib from Brahman Mahants who put up their idols in the holy shrine. This is the agenda of terrorists like the RSS who know Sikhs would never allow them to take Darbar Sahib and install their idols. Instead, they brainwash Sikhs and whitewash history until the Sikhs themselves install the idols for them!
Jathedars are supposed to represent the Panth, they do not command it, they are servants of the Guru. When a Jathedar no longer serves the Panth or the Guru they are no longer a Jathedar. While these puppets, who were installed by the Government with the support of Hindu supremacists, are called Jathedars in name, they are truly traitors to their position and to the Sikh Panth worldwide.
Wake up! It is time to oust these frauds! the Sikh Panth should be run by Sikhs for Sikhs, independent of any government or the interference of another religion pushing its beliefs on us.
We don't need a Jathedar who one day is worshiping at the tomb of a dead Saadh, the next day helps hand out images of Hindu deities under a banner of Ram Chander and the next is busy at the feet of the Chief Minister.

its a shameful act by vedanti. its expected act from chaman lal ( a RSS agent).
excellent sewa by you and ur team.
may waheguru bless u with the naam simran
It is a real shame when I read about out leaders eroding our very own religion. This was expected or shall I say the evolvement of things as ordained. Only the fittest Sikhs, imbued, infused and deeply in love with WAHEGURU shall survive. This is kalyug at its black, worse is yet to come. Sikhs will be tested, this is the very reason why Sikhi was ordained, because WAHEGURU wanted to instill that love of mankind within us, to prepare us with a future mission in mind.Those who know are aware of what I am saying. Be patient, for victory shall belong to WAHEGURU and we his humble subjects will help to attain this.
As for our current leaders, shame cannot be forced upon. Shamelessness could be their brethen right. Ironically, our leaders should be Sat Sangh selected and ideally there should be 5 thruthful GurSikhs for each Akal Takht, I have always tghought this should be the Sikh way of governance, as illustrated by our Tenth Master. 5 is not symbolic, it was done with purpose and intention, we should understand its intent.
Sat Shri Akal to All Sikhs...Be Patient
Dear Sikh Leaders,
Sikhi is beautiful. Why not ask the Hindus to become SIKHS. After all, they were all truely born as Sikhs. Then they can stop worshipping stones and figurines and pictures and mythological stories.
If our Guru's are the descendents of their Lord Rama, then I deduce that Lord Rama is the descendent of Adam and Eve, therefore, all Hindus should become Christians.
Amen Bolo Hindu Lok
Satkar yog bhai saab,
Its a big step taken by you to give this kind of information to the people. I really appreciate your sewa. if this kind of things are kept in front of Sikh sangat, I'm sure one day we will be able to get ourselves freed from this kind of so called panth de sewadars.
Please keep up the step & keep giving this kind of important information to Sikhs.
Sikhism needs Soldiers to settle down the Internal Shameless cheaters and lets replace them with young well educated Gursikhs who can drive the Sikhism in a right direction with and True intension.
We need to hit these bastards hard and hard.
First of thanks for the sewa that you have brought this up.
What you see today is not happened in a day. The preparations were going for long time now. Money and power has taken over a normal human being and these jathedars are not any extraordinary they can't follow great Baba Deep Singh Ji or Akali Phoola Singh. These Jathedars are greedy about loosing their jobs, so they have to follow the orders.
They're just the puppets in the hands of badal group. They are just being loyal to the person who has awarded them this name. These people think they own Sikhi, but they have to pay the price one day.
I love this site and organization this is living proof of Khalsa strength
I thank the Organizers of the Site to bring this Issue to the Sangat.
I also want to request the Sangat to Ban these flirts from speaking in Gurudwaras.
One thing I feel and want to share with sadh sangat is that, if these people like 'kala afgana' and Chamanlal etc. and there hidden supporters are not stopped at this stage, and if they succeed to some level, surely they will start making undue and unwanted towards remarks towards Sri GURU GRANTH SAHIB too, in one context or other in coming times. Better take proper and opposite action and reaction. Now is the time.
Thank you for these eye opening truths. I am an American Sikh who spent 30 years around Yogi Bhajan and his 3HO tantric cult. Please see the same attempt by Yogi's group to combine the Sikh faith with Hinduism. At Gurmukhyoga.com I have posted how hindu gods and Yogi Bhajan's image adorne the inside and outside of 3HO Gurdwaras.
Read at Gurmukhyoga.com how fire pujas and occult numerology, are practiced and advertised in the latest newsletter published by 3HO Sikhs. These "kriyas" or pujas are complete nonsense and should not be practiced by Sikhs of the Guru and only add to the destruction and dissolution of the Sikh faith. The object of these practices is to combine the Sikh faith with Hinduism; to defang, neuter and completely destroy Sikhi. The strategy is to introduce idolatry and a stratified priesthood into the Sikh Religion. Yogi Bhajan and his 3HO shakti cult followers are introducing idolatry and Hindu practices of pujas and tantra mantra into the Sikh religion. The Bhajan movement is attempting to shift Sikh worship from the commonwealth of Gurdwaras to private estates controlled by 3HO priests of Yogi Bhajan's Tantric sex cult church.
These peoples are " Masand " So Sikh Sangant Know very well What we should do with them ...Believe me there is no other way to stop this ....They must Punished As soon as Possible .
