Dasam Granth Controversy Promoted by Anti Sikh Scholars

should not have been of raising controversies as happened, the
question was whether we should compel all Sikhs to follow, recite
and accept any other Granth, parallel to Sri Guru Granth Sahib?
Did Guru Gobind
Singh, the tenth of the Sikh Guru not affirm the sacred text Adi
Granth as his successor, terminating the line of human Gurus, and
elevating the text to Guru Granth Sahib. Thenceforward the text
remained the holy scripture of the Sikhs, regarded as the living
embodiment of the Ten Gurus. The role of Guru Granth Sahib, as a
source or guide of prayer, is pivotal in worship in Sikhism?
was no such status given to any other Granth by the Guru.
providing more knowledge and the clarification on the subject, the
discussion turned into the question of prestige among the scholars
and afraid to say also among the intolerants, though Guru Granth
Sahib does not permit to behave in the manner. Who was paying money
to whom and what for? At whose instance, only God knows! Or do the
divided scholars and the intolerants know it very well?
To my mind and
in view of the above, the excommunication of former Jathedar (high
priest) Professor Darshan Singh was and is nothing serious and only
for assessing the reaction of Sikh community to the excommunication
in the context of Sikh affairs and also to make sure and see Sikh
community all over the world divided politically and permanently.
Rest you all
know better, who were directly involved and raising the
controversies. Some might be different in thinking, practicing,
feeling and so from others perceptively. The Sikhs may also be
lacking in attaining perfection in their respective fields.
Please do accept
that the reality of sacred text i.e. Guru Granth Sahib remained the
only holy scripture of the Sikhs, regarded as the living embodiment
of the Ten Gurus without trespassing the rights of Sikhs, having
contrary views or in addition to the sacred text i.e. Guru Granth
