British Columbia, Canada: Prof Gurbachan Singh Thailand was to do katha for two weeks at a Gurdwara Sahib in BC during last week of Nov. 2009. His style of katha is very dodgy. He starts with Gurmat principles in the beginning of katha, but being a hard core Kala Afghana followers, diverts his katha to attack Gurmat openly.
He started attacked Gurmat during very first day of his katha this time. He said there is no benefit of getting baptized with khande bate di pahul. Getting up at Amrit vela and doing Naam Simran was also denounced by him. There is no benefit of such things, said GS Thailand in one of his sermons.
On hearing such ugly vichaars, sangat complained to Management committee of Gurudwara sahib. Committee took notice of his anti Gurmat views during his katha for three days. Being satisfied with complaints against him, Gurbachan singh Thailandwale was asked to leave Gurudwara sahib on fourth day. The decision of committee was unanimous and they did not want any problem in community by having preacher like Thailandwale who only speak against Sikh Rehat Maryada.
Gurbachan Singh Thailand has been in the news for such heretic views in the past also. Many Gurudwaras had debarred him form doing any katha in US and Canada. Sangat is cautioned against such characters whose aim is to spread misinformation about basics of Sikhism.
