Controversy Surrounding Prof Darshan Singh Ji

Aug 28, 2010
I find that the basic problem seems to be connected with the fact that we Sikhs are not aware of the criterion of Baani being refered as Gurbaani.Once this is clarified and known all the controversies related to Bani other than SGGS is automatically over.
We should make some efforts towards this otherwise there is possibility of any new controvercy propping up at any time.
This is only a small suggestion.We should develop our own understanding to a level where we are able to say either "yes" or "No".

The history of Sikh spiritual leadership is a bit tainted. So it is understandable that many people may be confused about the tenets and authority of the leaders no matter where it comes from. It is due to lack of education and insincerity to Sikhi.

If the leaders are below par they cannot expect masses to believe any of their recommendations or advice. Majority of Sikhs can see through them.

You can take ‘guidance’ from our leaders over the last 27 years which is well documented. They have colluded with nefarious elements and attacked Harminder Sahib, blanked out any media that can present truth to the people, corrupted the police, are killing Amritdhari Sikhs, encouraging Deras, corrupting the books used to teach Sikhs, protecting the culprits of the 1984 Katylam, organising silly stunts that they can later correct to hoodwink the uninformed masses list is endless.

Sikhs are not fools – the talent they have can see through all this and have the courage and patience to unfold blood stained lies by self sacrifices.

This is all despite the help from SGPC, DSPGC and Akal Takhat not to mention state and India Governments.

For a society where the Gurus considered themselves lowest of the low, protected the Truth, fought against tyranny, sacrificed their lives for humanity, guided us along the right path for over 200 years and for these leaders to come along and ‘behave like gods’ is no short than the brahmanical quagmire that Sikh religion replaced.

It is understandable for uneducated people to take sides when perfectly respectable people are excommunicated only because these people in ‘authority’ cannot understand the issues.

Read the Publishers note to a Book ‘Panjab and Panjabi’ by GS Sidhu – it may explain the path followed by these leaders.

Re: Prof Darshan Singh Ji Ragi

Prof. Darshan Singh was myfavorite ragi...until i heard his views on Dasam Granth.. He believes that Dasam patshia's Bachitar Nattak and many of other banis of dasam guru are not written by Guru Ji himself... He is really good ragi but i don't think he's bigger Gyani than Sant Jarnail Singh Khalsa Bhindranwale.. Sant Muskeen Singh.. Sant Baba Ishar Singh ji.. Bhai Balbir Singh.. Sant Baba Thakur Singh ji ... And Biggest gyani of them all BRHAM GYANI BABA DEEP SINGH JI... who all have not only read Dasam Granth but also studied it word by word.. all know the meaning of every word... Sant Jarnail SIngh ji khalsa aloso said that if you don't believe in Dasam Granth bani and its you are nothing but a "NASTAK" ATHEIST... in my eyes he is nothing but an athiest..
Na, not at all. He's a brave man with logics & profound explanation against Dasam Granth that Granth holds no authenticity n place not only in Sikhism but doesn't hold value to any community. Forget what others say or believe, try seeing n knowing yrself that can that Granth be from our Guru. It's no way in tune or ideology of our 10 Gurus.

Ragi Darshan Singh is no doubt a very well acknowledged in the Sikh world for his inspiring kirtan and descriptive discourses on gurbani however fter his appointment as Jathedar Akal Takhat he moved from the hinge and started engtering in the field which are not his expertise hence has be frequently attacked. We do not want to lose hisdazzling kirtan and discourses and request him to limit himself to the field of his expertise.

Dasam Granth Sahib is not new to the present day sangat. It's been here since long time from the elders and prime example Bh mani singh ji. If any change is required or something is not right it, It should come from a Brahm Giani not a teacher or preacher like Prof: Darshan Singh. If he proves that he will not cry if he is put on hot plate or cut buy a saw, I will take his words otherwise he should just do his kirtal from Sri Guru Granth Sahib as well as from Sri Dasam Granth Sahib. If he doesn’t agree with Sri Dasam Granth Sahib he should keep on doing kirtan just from Sri Guru Granth Sahib.Regarding Sri Dasam Granth Sahib, keep his mouth shut and don't heart the Sangat who totally believe in Sri Dasam Granth Sahib.
2009-2024.....15 years have gone by and the "Brahmgyani" who will sit on a Hot Plate or get sawed in half or cut limb from limb hasnt stepped FORWARD. He SHOULD DO SO NOW SINCE PROF DARSHAN SINGH IS ALREADY VERY OLD AND MAY NOT BE AROUND FOR LONG. I AM SURE THIS "BRAHMGYANI" CAN SIT ON THE HOT PLATE AND DECLARE THE BACHITR NATAK GRANTH AUTHENTIC AND WE WILL BELEIVE IT.
