Sri Guru Granth Sahib is only supreme
Balbir Singh Sooch*
The Sikh Vichar
Manch does not express any regards/respects or
disregards/disrespects for “Dasam Granth”. For the Sikh Vichar Manch
the Only ‘Sri Guru Granth Sahib’ is supreme and sacred as our
‘Shabad Guru’ nothing else is so important religiously for Sikhs but
at the same time any part of other books may also be valuable and
knowledgeable and though those can not be kept at equal footing and
quoted or considered in any manner similar/same in comparison with
‘Sri Guru Granth Sahib’ religiously.
controversial book on 'Dasam Granth' written by a Dubai based Sikh
Jasbinder Singh Khalsa etc must also be read, seen and considered in
view of the submission made by the ‘Sikh Vichar Manch’ above and
must not be taken any thing related to “Dasam Granth” for creating
confusion, division to destroy the centralization/unity of Sikhs as
remained practice in past by the persons for their own vested
interests at the instance of some forces inimical to Sikhs.
knowledge, the comparative study is must and no person to the
subject concerned should feel untouchable from the books written
impartiality and with the result of having pious intention by
including logical illustrations. Some times controversies do us lead
to the right conclusions for leading peaceful and healthy way of
life. The language must be refined even while condemning any portion
of book thinking that nothing is purposeless within the limitation
if you feel created by the Almighty though everything couldn’t be
brought within the ambit of word ‘Sacred’.
scenario is age of liberalism and logic based on tolerance for
attaining peace and justice. The principle is already enshrined in
‘Sri Guru Granth Sahib’ i.e. Sarbat Da Bhala.
by the Sikh Vichar Manch may prove helpful to resolve the
controversy but further nothing to say more to contradict the final
verdict and directives of Tenth Master, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji
i.e. to follow only ‘Sri Guru Granth Sahib’ in any manner even on
the basis of different interpretation of words in this case. But
here disobedience of Guru’s own orders is not desirable at all.
Nobody opposed to the submission of the Sikh Vichar Manch so far but
in spite of it tug of war is going on among the Sikhs on the subject
for the reasons best known to them.
Are the Sikhs
under external pressure and slave? Are they performing assigned/
given task by their masters and don’t wish to understand the
demerits of such a divisive act?

YOU UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR RELIGION?
Definitely, it is not meant for or to raise
controversies in order to disturb peace in any manner within or the
Worldwide. Are you not defaming yourself for purely due to your
personal reasons by raising the controversies? Submission by Balbir Singh Sooch
In all SOCIETIES throughout history
people have left the need for religion. A religion is a set of
beliefs that relies on spiritual faith in its followers. Most
religions have a god or gods and provide answers to questions such
as how the world was created and what happens after death. Religions
often have special rituals that act as ways of communicating with
the gods or making major events in a person’s life. Finally,
religions usually involve an ethical code, a set of rules that
believers try to live by.
The fifth largest
world religion, Sikhism was founded in northern India in the 16th
century by Guru Nanak. It has one sacred scripture, the
