In the last few decades Sikhs around the world have experienced extreme pain and sorrow. Our most respected Sachkhand Sri Harmandir Sahib and 42 other Gurdwaras around Punjab were attacked by the Indian Army in 1984. Sri Akal Takhat Sahib and several Gurdwaras were destroyed during this assault. Priceless items of historical significance were lost forever when the Sikh Reference Library was deliberately set on fire. Sikh treasure (Toshakhana) was looted and what remained, set on fire as well. This systematic destruction of Sikh history was followed by a well planned genocide, marked by the extra-judicial mass killings of thousands of innocent Sikhs in Punjab, wiping out an entire generation. After attacking us and our institutes physically, the Indian agencies are now working very hard using fake scholars and preachers to raise doubts in our trust and respect for Gurbani.
As a part of this deep conspiracy,
1) So called ‘scholars’ in Western Universities have initiated a systematic attempt, under the grab of ‘research’, to challenge the fact that the living embodiment of the Guru Sahiban, GUru Granth Sahib jee is “Dhur ki Banni: the Revealed Word’.
2) Deliberate attempts are being made to distance the innocent and sincere Sikhs by raising doubts about Khanday dee Pahul by challenging the authenticity of Bannis read while preparing the Amrit, the age old Ardaas, other compositions of Guru Gobind Singh jee in Sri Dasam Granth and the works of Bhai Sahib Bhai Gurdas jee, all of which are an inseparable part of the panth.
3) Historical events including those related to Guru Sahiban are being purposely distorted to shake the faith of Sikhs in their rich traditions and practice of their beliefs.
It is time for us to be aware of these attempts to created confusion in the Path. In order to recognize the forces behind this conspiracy and to realize the truth, the entire devout Sikh Sangat is invited to attend the following Seminar.
