Ever since the avtar of Guru Nanak Dev Ji in 1469 this glistening jewel called Sikhism has been eyed by many. Some claim it to be part of their faith, others want to assimilate it into theirs Some claim Guru Nanak Dev Ji as their own while other organisations say he was part of them.
Let me firstly say quite clearly that I have no malice or hatred towards any person or belief, all are equal in the eyes of the One true Guru. But there are certain sections on the periphery of Sikhism that are twisting facts and misguiding people. It is therefore with great regret that I must add this page to www.info-Sikh.com
Ninety eight percent of the Sikh population is of the view – and this is backed up with evidence researched by historians as well as the oral tradition – that in the town of Nanded, Maharashtra on the Pancham Sudi Katak day November 1708 Guru Gobind Singh Ji the tenth master of the Sikhs having realised that his time on Earth was coming to an end passed on the guruship to the Sikh scriptures, Aadh Guru Granth Sahib Ji, and then ascended to Sach Khand (heaven). This version is disputed by certain sects who say that Guru Ji faked his death, decieving his Sikhs and lived in disguise, moving around from one place to another ignoring the presecution of his followers until he passed the guruship to a Baba Balak Singh.
The crux of the matter is this, somehow, however farfetched, however contrived, a link must be established between Guru Gobind Singh Ji and Baba Balak, if they cannot do this then their whole set of beliefs come into question. Hence a tremendous amount of time, money and effort has been spent in this pursuit. The ‘evidence’ on their sites has been produced in such a fashion that the casual observer is overwhelmed by it, the seeds of doubt are sown.
It is due to this onslaught that we must re-butt their claims in a calm, rational, level headed manner backed up with historical fact and references. As will be shown most of the ‘ evidence ’ is speculation, conjecture, half truths, twisted facts and in some cases total untruths.
May God have mercy on their souls.
