Dasam Granth Controversy Promoted by Anti Sikh Scholars

Tue, Feb 02, 2010 9:13:49

Here, question 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?

 Whereas, there was no such status given to any other Granth by the Guru.

Instead of 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 Sahib.
