Anti-Sikh Cultist Leader Of Nirmala Sect Shot Dead http://www.sikharchives.com/?p=5576 Special Report By The Poet Warrior The head of a virulently anti-Sikh cult in the Punjab Sant (Saint) Pradhan Singh was gunned down by armed Sikh militants in Hoshiarpur district. Unidentified persons armed with Kalashnikovs opened fire on the head of the “Dera Mai Dass (Nirmale sect)” at Baddon, seriously injuring the self-proclaimed Saint. He succumbed to numerous bullet injuries on the way to a civil hospital in adjoining Phagwara, the sources said. There is ongoing unrest in the Punjab as cultists masquerading as Sikhs attempt to fracture the Sikh Religion and destroy the unitary doctrine of the Respected Guru Granth Sahib. A corollary to the unrest are the continuing efforts to establish a priestly caste in the Sikh Religion and shift Sikh worship from the commonwealth of gurudwaras to private estates controlled by priests. The Sikh religion specifically prohibits the formation of a priesthood. According to fundamental tenets of this divine religion there can be no earthly interlocutor between a Sikh and his communion with God. Note: Sir John Malcolm reported in 1812 that the Nirmale sect originally trained in Benares and Hindu scripture were prohibited from entering the Golden Temple as they were a heretical sect. The Nirmale sect was instrumental in the early promotion of a dasam granth at the behest of their English masters. Sir John further reported in 1812 that they were parked outside the Golden Temple and were writing an alternate granth.
