LONDON, UK—Basics of Sikhi founder and CEO Bhai Jagrag Singh has been diagnosed with cancer, the Everythings 13 team announced earlier today. The news was unexpected and has left the Sikh sangat worldwide in a shock.
Tests have revealed that Bhai Jagraj Singh has been diagnosed with stage four advanced cancer which has spread to his liver and is inoperable.
The Everythings 13 team that runs Basics of Sikhi and other Sikh initiatives announced that Bhai Jagraj Singh might only have a few months to live.
Better known for his “Street Parchar” Bhai Jagraj Singh started several initiatives in 2012 to raise awareness of the Sikh faith. Since then, he has trained dozens of parchariks worldwide. He has spoken at camps and events worldwide.
Along with Basics of Sikhi, some of the other initiatives launched by him include the Amritsar Visitor Center, Sikh Press Association and the Mightly Khalsaproject. The Sikh Press Association is a media facing project providing publicity for the Panth. The project runs positive PR campaigns to raise the profile of Sikhs in the mainstream. Mighty Khalsa is a Sikh kids orientated educational books, games and apps project.
“This news has come as a shock to us all and we’re sure the Sangat will have lots of questions and messages for Jagraj Singh. During this difficult time we request Sangat to respect the privacy of Jagraj Singh and his family. Please leave your comments on this post rather than private messages as he may not be able to answer. Your blessings and Ardaasan are gratefully welcome,” Everythings 13 team stated in a press release.
Bhai Jagraj Singh shared the following message with the Sangat –
“Only SatGuru Ji can give or take life away and they are never wrong, only perfect. In all the Seva that Guru Ji allowed me to do of his beautiful Panth, I’ve made many mistakes and I ask forgiveness from the Sangat. If the Guru’s message has touched you and you feel it’s the truth, I urge you to follow that truth and become a GurSikh as none of us knows how long we have left. Please do Ardaas that Guru Ji gives me a place in his Charan and keeps my family and the Panth in Chardi-Kala. May the Panth flourish, even if I am finished, this is pure joy for me.”
A program is being organized at the Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara, Park Avenue, in Southall, from 6pm till 8pm to do ardas for Bhai Sahib. Similarly, Sikh Sangat worldwide is asked to do Chaupai Sahib jaaps and ardas for Bhai Jagraj Singh’s chardi kala.
