    US Court to pronounce sentence to Controversial Baba Daljit Singh Chicago on 29th of June


    H S Bawa
    Jalandhar, June 15-

    [​IMG]

    A Controversial Baba, who allegedely collected huge sums of money in the name of religion and managed to established a big Gurudwara at Illinois in the US under the name Guru Nanak Sikh Mission Inc., has been found guilty of contempt of Court because he transferred the property of the Mission even as the US law didn't permit him to do so and despite Court orders not to do so. He now faces jail sentence in US.

    Judge Joseph P.Condon of Circuit Court of the Twenty-Second Judicial Circuit, McHenry County, Illinois, in his order dated June, 8, 2012 said ‘’The court has found Baba Daljit Singh to be in contempt of court for wasting the corporation's assets in defiance of Judge Meyer's order. The court will conduct a sentencing hearing. Counsel for plaintiff and counsel for Baba be prepared to argue whether a purge is available and, ought to be. If no purge is available, the proper punishment is the only issue. Baba Daljit Singh will have the opportunity to speak at the sentencing hearing.””

    Baba Daljit Singh Chicago who has been convicted by a Court in Illinois, US shall hear the quantum of sentence to be served by him on 29th of June but only if he chooses to be present in the Court, this time.

    The Baba mired in controversies is at present in India and has not presented himself on various Court hearings. The case had been filed by one Harminder Singh Khaira on May 19, 2010. Khaira is a director in the Mission.

    The US Court was to pronounce sentence on Baba Daljit Singh Chicago for his illegal acts and contempt of Court on 8th of June, the last hearing of the case but his lawyer told the Court that the Baba has flown to India as his father was not keeping well.

    Baba, who floated Guru Nanak Sikh Mission America Inc., and collected donations in the name of religion for the property situated at 217, W.State Road, Island Lake, Illinois allegedly got transferred the entire property of the mission in his name on 14th of October, 2011 while there was a court order barring him to do so. Compounding his blunder he later transferred the same property in the name of one Harpreet Singh Saini.

    It has been claimed that various documents provided by Baba to Harminder Singh Khaira, the plaintiff, were found to be inaccurate, incomplete, deceptive and fraudulent by the Court. However, the Court in its orders also said that some documents provided by the plaintiff were also frauds.

    Baba and Jaspal Kaur Randhawa by a warranty deed transferred the property on January 9, 1998 and converted the same into a Gurudwara. The Court has observed that thereafter ‘the congregation began worshiping at this location. The congregation continued to do so until December 2011 when the mission building was ordered closed by the village of Island Lake, Illinois as a matter of public safety.’

    The Court noted that Harminder Singh Khaira began worshipping at the Mission in 1999 and became a Director in 2003. The Court also mentions that Khaira was never elected and even went on to say that Khaira was appointed to the Board by Baba Daljit Singh who himself was never elected.

    The Court observed that Guru Nanak Sikh Mission of America did not keep correct and complete books, records of accounts, and minutes of meetings. The Mission had no membership records or elected directors. Baba Daljit Singh himself was never elected to be a director either.

    The by-laws of the Mission also did not explain how directors were to be elected and the expiration of their terms. Election of directors is required by law but Baba said that the Directors were selected and not elected. This is said to be against Illinois law.

    It was also noted that Guru Nanak Sikh Mission had not complied with any provision of the General Not for Profit Corporation Act of 1986.

    Khaira had asked the court that the Guru Nanak Sikh Mission of America not be dissolved, but the Court instead appointed a custodian whose duties would be to fix the corporation. The Judge said that this cannot be done because the corporation no longer has a temple at which services are held and the corporation has no records of anything with which the custodian would have a basis for fixing things at the Mission.

    The Court found each count in favor of the Plaintiff Harminder Singh Khaira and said that Baba Daljit Singh was acting in an oppressive and fraudulent manner. The assets of the Guru Nanak Sikh Mission are being misapplied and wasted.

    Judge Condon found Baba Daljit Singh in contempt of court as Judge Meyers orders stated that “the parties are not to encumber or dissipate the assets of the Guru Nanak Sikh Mission of America.”

    Going through the entire episode the Court noted that ‘’The Village of Island Lake, Illinois closed the temple in December 2011 for reasons of public safety. The corporation was unable to afford the necessary repairs. Thereafter the corporation attempted to convey the real estate to Baba Daljit Singh and Jaspal Kaur Randhawa by warranty deed dated October 14, 2011. Baba Daljit Singh and Jaspal Kaur Randhawa then attempted to convey the real estate to Harpreet S. Saini, a creditor of the corporation, by quitclaim deed dated December 16, 2011”.

    Baba Daljit Singh transferred the property of the Mission to his name on October 14, 2011. This was done wrongfully and illegally and was against the orders of Judge Meyer. He then transferred the property to Harpreet Saini on December 16th 2011 and this was also done illegally and against the orders of Judge Meyer.

    Baba Daljit Singh did not appear in Court on June 8th, the last date of hearing. His lawyer stated that his Father fell ill on the night of 7th of June, so the Baba went to India. Khaira described it as a strange coincidence that Baba’s father became sick the night before the decision was supposed to be announced in the case.

    The Court will conduct a sentencing hearing on June 29th in the matter of Baba Daljit Singh committing contempt of court.

    LATEST:
    Judge also found Baba Daljit Singh in contempt of court and decided that the only way to fix the contempt of court was to pay the appraised value of the property. Judge gave the receiver 4 weeks to have to property appraised and set the next date for July 27th on which Baba will either have to pay the appraised value of the property or will be punished by the Judge with jail time.

    Judge also took possession of Baba Daljit Singh's Passport so he could not run out of country.

    IF SIKHS cant FIX these fraud babas (or dont want to )..THEN OTHERS will FIX them for US.
    ALL the Jathedars....from Punjab to Patna/Maharahstra/ etc..PAST and PRESENT have been SHUT UP by this Baba via valuable Gifts such as GOLD KHANDAS, and luxurious holidays abroad...so THOSE Jathedras are certainly NOT going to open their mouths...
    This Baba was also CAUGHT RED HANDED ( or rather RED FACED with his Chola UP and Pajama DOWN in a HOTEL ROOM..supposedly "counseling a lady of the profession"....and Ran away from the scene by calling for police help due to the Sangat Gathered outside and in his hurry left his Gol Dastaar behind...( Further description of such an act can be found in the Dasam Granth as the writer of that book ALSO committed a simialr act ...and for POINTING OUT that GURU GOBIND SINGH JI COULDNT HAVE done such a vile DEED..the Professor Darshan Singh was rudely excommunicated !!! - by those very jathedars who got GOLD KHANDAS !!!) What goes round..comes around...:singhbhangra:

    The babas are all the same. They're after people's wives, daughters and their properties.

    Nowadays even the Granthi from India also use heavy mesmerizing tactics to collect more shabad-bhet. Often found to use subliminal and auto suggestion messages over and over again.

    Sometimes I feel that we should not give so much power to the granthis. Because they WILL misuse the power of speech. All for GREED.

    These Granthis/ragis/parcharaks/kathawachaks etc etc...are the present day "EXPORT" of PUNJAB. Unemployable and UNFIT for any other job due to little or no education, with no moral scruples, compassion, or any other good habits etc these are MECHANICAL PAATH READERS/prayer doers for MONEY. They ROAM the WORLD..preaching to SIKHS about SIKHI and Gurmatt when they themselves are seldom "Sikhs/Gurmatt skilled"..simply wearing the outer unifrom to trick sangats into thinking they know better (and mostly they in fact "know better" because the local sangats KNOW NOTHING !!..what is commonly referred to as ONE EYED IS KING AMONG THE BLIND. ) and so they encourage PAID AKHAND PAATHS at the bat of an eye...for each and every ocassion !! it provides employment/gains for them..and they encourage extra side dishes..like japji sahib Paath for another FIVE additional "pathees"..and next will be an additional sukhmani Sahib Paath so another Five cna get employed at each akhand paath - maybe soon they will require five chaur shakers, five parshaad wanddders..etc because the "unemployed pathis" are getting more in number...WHILE LISTENERS to such Paaths are getting SCARSER by the day...just go to any AP and see how the pathi is reading to WALLS!!

    2. SIKHS are going to rue the DAY when they gave so much "POWER" to these uneducated Pathis/ardassiahs....because when these same ones become JATHEDARS....then they show their TRUE COLOURS !!

    I would not give a single pence to these monkies or goto the Gurudwara or any place to see them. Its a shame that Sikhs can be fooled by these idiots.

    Its funny how they kind of baabe stopped coming to our gurudwara. Once the big baba (maybe the biggest) Ranjit Singh Dhadriana Wala came... my wife said she wants to go and see him. Only to see why people think he is god. The stage sectary introduced him as "Bhai Sahib" not his usual "Sant Ranjit Singh" and he was weeping like a child. What an idiot. People were raising their arms as he asked.. like sheep being gathered by the sheep dog. By the way I did not raise my arms!!

    What is wrong with people?
