We bring home the
‘Paani’ (water) from the Sarovar, we should also bring back
the ‘Baani’ (divine knowledge). Bhai Ranjit Singh Khalsa
Dhadrianwale stated this and they made a fuss about why the
word water was used instead of ‘Amrit’. What is the water
from the Sarovar called when it goes through the sewerage
system? Amrit? What is it called when it is filtered? Do we
call it filtered Amrit? When the SGPC ordered the filtering
system for the Sarovar, will they have said they wish to
“filter the Amrit” or did they say they wish to “filter the
water from the Sarovar”? In one meaning it is indeed Amrit,
but in another it is simply water. Amrit can be water, it
can also be food, it can also be milk, it can also be
knowledge – this depends on the context. For example, the
meaning of milk in one context is the ‘milk that comes from
the cow’. But for a weak person whose body needs strength,
for that person the milk is Amrit. The milk has provided
strength and it has worked as Amrit. But it is referred to
within Guru Granth Sahib Ji must be read. For an
unknowledgeable person, knowledge is Amrit. For a dying
person who received a life-saving medicine, for that person
the medicine is Amrit. Similarly, if we can all bathe in the
same water and it has ended our differences in caste and
race, then that water becomes Amrit. These concepts must be
understood in line with Gurbani. However, some do not wish
to understand but instead intentionally cause controversy.
They say Bhai Ranjit Singh Khalsa is doing wrong Parchar,
but what is wrong in this?
More recently, controversy has been stirred about comments
made by the Sikh Parcharak on the history of Guru Tegh
Bahadur Ji’s time at Baba Bakala, specifically comments made
on the claims that Guru Sahib Ji spent 26 years in a ‘Bhora’.
History says that for 26 years Guru Sahib Ji went from Baba
Bakala to do Parchar. They did not sit in a ‘Bhora’. Another
piece of history says they did. Bhai Ranjit Singh Khalsa
emphasised the fact that any history must always be seen
under the light of Gurbani. Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji were
remarkable. Whether they went out and did Parchar, or sat in
one place, it does not make them anything less than what
they were. If Guru Granth Sahib Ji gives one message, but
there is a piece of history that contradicts that message –
which should be believed?
The SGPC official website states
the history as Bhai Ranjit Singh Khalsa has told it.
On Saturday 25 March 2017, a group of protestors assembled
outside of Gurdwara Parmeshar Dwar Sahib in Patiala,
demanding that Bhai Ranjit Singh Khalsa “apologise”. Why do
they not go outside the SGPC and protest there, who have
also published the history which Bhai Ranjit Singh Khalsa
has simply spoken about?
A thirty-minute video will be soon be recorded and
uploaded online. Bhai Ranjit Singh Khalsa requests all
to watch this recording when it is released within the next
twenty-four hours or so. The group who went protesting
outside Parmeshar Dwar will get the answer to every question
they raised within that video.
However, Bhai Ranjit Singh Khalsa has stated in clear words
that they fired bullets and killed a fellow Parcharak, that
they can try doing protests and they can swear and
intimidate and do whatever they want, but he will speak only
what is the truth. “Your intimidation will not work on me, I
would rather stop doing Parchar but I will never speak
anything by force which I believe to be untruthful”, he
Too much history has
been distorted. The same history they are promoting also
says Guru Nanak Dev Ji consumed ‘Bhang’ (an edible
preparation of cannabis) – can this ever be believed as
fact? In the ‘Suraj Parkash’ they do Katha from it is also
written that Guru Gobind Singh Ji had a craving for the
‘Afeem’ drug. A copy of the Suraj Parkash should be
purchased and read , and then a decision made on whether
what Bhai Ranjit Singh Khalsa has been saying is right or
History has been
written by people, but Gurbani has been written by Guru
Sahib Ji. Therefore, history must not by any means be
ignored, but any piece of it must only be accepted if it
fits in with Guru Granth Sahib Ji’s philosophy.
Sikhs must watch the
movements of these groups closely and where their movements
are going. What’s happening is blatant intimidation.
