Firstly, a Sants main purpose is to join you with Maharaj, not them. Therefore, it is ignorant of you to just forget the greatest Sant of all Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj.
If you had this much sharda for Sant Ji, you wouldn't believe this without solid evidence. - I highly suggest you to visit Sant Baba Jagjit Singh Ji Harkowal Wale as they will give you a better insight on Sant Ji's jeevan and clear up any rumours. Sant Baba Mann Singh Ji Pehowa Wale regularly tell of Sant Ji, hence why I am sure of the spiritual capability.
