Anti-Sikh Cultist Leader Of Nirmala Sect Shot Dead

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.

whenever any such incidence happens first thing all of us do is to take it as inter-religious war.Why we always reach to conclusions instantly. For any such attack the religious factors can not be the only reason behind. It might have been some other reasons such as enemity, money, any other problems whatsoever. Why donot we wait and watch till police reach to some conclusion

One should read SAHIB SRI " GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI MAHARAJ" and things will become
much more clearer.

“There is only one true Dharma (faith). Gurmat (Sikhism) is complete and perfect through the ages.” (Ang 1188)

The Vedas and the Scriptures are only make-believe, O Siblings of Destiny; they do not relieve the anxiety of the heart. (Ang 727)[/FONT]

Guru Nanak is the greatest of all; He saved my honor in this Dark Age of Kali Yuga. (Ang 750)

He is beyond the world of the Vedas, the Koran and the Bible. The Supreme King of Nanak is immanent and manifest. ||4||3||105|| (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Ang 397)

“Everyone makes mistakes; only the Guru and the Creator are infallible.”

(Ang 61)

“God has given this gift. Nanak’s home is filled with only Naam, the Name of Vaheguru. ||4||4||” (Ang 1136)


Their service is useless. Those who fall at the feet of a stone god their work is wasted in vain….The stone does not speak; it does not give anything to anyone. Such religious rituals are useless; such service is fruitless. (Ang 1160)[/FONT]

Like a dream and a show, so is this world, you must know. None of this is true, O Nanak, without God. ||23|| (Ang 1427)

Neither I am Hindu neither I am Muslim ( ANG 1136)


We acknowledge One, Eternal, Primal Lord. The whole expanse has originated from Him. Forgetting the Creator we do not worship any mortal (created one). Guru Granth is our faith, our support. We have abandoned all distinction of caste. We are friends of all and love all. Love of all is like that of Lotus in water. Distinct is the Khalsa of Guru Nanak. (Kabit Bhai Gurdas Ji)

Baba liberated all four directions and nine divisions of earth. Gurmukh (Guru Nanak) has emerged in this kaliyug, the Dark Age. (Vaar 1)

In his meditation, Baba found the whole earth burning (with the fire of lust, greed and anger). Without Guru there is utter darkness and he heard the cries of the common men…… Thus he went out to depurate humanity on earth. (Vaar 1)

Ten incarnations also flourished but none could perceive ek-ankar, the supreme Lord. (Bhai Gurdas Ji, Vaar 16)

The Guru, the True Guru, is my social status and honor; I have sold my head to the Guru. (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Ang 731)

Hereafter caste and power are of no account. They, who are accepted by the Lord, are the only men of honor. (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Ang 67)

Sayings Tenth Soverign King ( SAHIB SRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI MAHARAJ) on
self styled Gurus or cultist

How can we accept God coming into this world in human form? The Siddhas (people who try to attain spiritual powers by living in jungles) are tired by sitting with their eyes closed to find and see God but are been unable to. (Shabad Hazaray, Guru Gobind Singh Ji)

Do not accept anyone except God as God. (Shabad Hazaray)

I recite only the Name of the Lord, which is useful at all places. (Bachittar Natak)

I do not meditate on anyone else, nor do I repeat the Name of anyone else. ||38|| (Bachittar Natak)

Sing the Guru's Bani, the supreme Word of Words. (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Ang 917)

This verses shows Guru Nanak Sahib was not ordanary "Guru and this is the message from our Guru enshrinded in it? Guru Nanak Sahib is the Satguru, a true Guru, who is highest of all, always has been and will always be.
