In reply to the above quote, want to add that Guru Ji did have one sikh fight sava lakh. Guru Ji did not 'barely manage to escape' but left under the hukam of the Panj Pyare (correct me if I am wrong) which means Guru Ji was going to stay and then maybe even fight. When one understands that Guru Ji treated their family and sikhs as one then one begins to understand why I claim to have faith in and love for Guru Ji ( not any normal individual I don't think).

lol let me point something out ji.

Learn to read between the lines. That was put up to silence that prat persona who seems to have nothing original to say but uses his brain when it suits him.

If you have something to say against the points made above, then lets please hear them???

Fateh

Did I miss something? I agree with what the person above had written so why must I say something against those points?

I'm trying to find out as much information I can on this guy, I know of the evil he spreaded against the sikh religion but still don't know where he adopted Maharaz from. There many believers of him around the country even possibly India.

If you live in Birmingham you must have heard of the SND electrical wholesalers(Large business formed back in 70's by so called "sikhs") the main owners are followers of darshan das. What takes the mick is that these so called singh's, wear white paghs, and in their late 60's are seen wearing tilks on their heads.

A program is aired on Raj TV called "shaadi" it shows different background cultural weddings, really to show people how marriages happen in other religions. I switched over to this channel while this program was on and came across the blokes from SND, at this wedding. The cam was on them for most of the wedding like they were getting married. If goreh are watching this program surely its sending them the wrong message about sikhs, its showing old "so called singhs" with tilks on their heads. Goreh and other race people must get confused, people like that are damaging our religion cuz other race people might get mispoint that singh's do this.

The truth is that "sikh identity" was ruined by people like darshan das, also do any of you also know the name of darshan das's killer, because he deserves a big reward and recognition from the sikh panth if he already hasn't.

In Punjab you hear of sikhs in pind's following sants or worshipping people for so called "good luck" only reason I can see them doing this is due to poverty and being poor which leads these people to look at changing their lives.

The Guru Granth Sahib is the only living Guru for the Sikhs. d_oh.gif

On the net i've only come across one main website on the topic of "darshan das", could you add to the post if you know more of this guy and what he did? :@

I know about 90% of white people get confused when Sikhs cut their hair because they learn that SIkhs dont cut their hair and muslims can co when they see a guy with cut hair they think hes a Muslim.

i think you all need to take just a minute, before judging anyone. I have gone to see darshan das many times, at no point did they slate sikhism in fact they promote it. By taking quotes from it and then explaining what it means in depth and how much respect we should be giving towards Gurubani. By sitting down and listening to what they are saying and not being in the kitchen talking about people and making food. I have found going to many temples that, the temple has become a soical club were all women seem to do is talk about clothes and other familys, kids running around, people going for 5 mins and then going. I have seen with my own eyes the prists of many temples that eat meat and drink and then go the next day and read the Gurubani, that hurts me so much, that i stopped going to the temple, i thought to myself these people don't really care. Then i started to go and see darshan das and my faith was restored and i started believing again. They respect the gurubani so much. I have learned a great deal from them about our faith and how much respect should be given. They explain all the teachings of all 10 gurus. So i don't understand why people say he is dividing and teaching wrong things, when they only promote the gurnbani 24/7 and do no wrong.

Intresting that you think they are doing a justice for the koum, I just wanted to ask if you judge the sikh religion by the people following it or by the teachings its self.

Its well enough listening to the Gurubani, but you need to know what is being said. We all know the basic teachings but not all. The prists never explain each line, each word in depth. You probably get 5 mins were he goes over roughly and its mostly the same as they keep changing. Being a young sikh its hard to understand when the gurubani is being read what it means, as its not in basic panjabi. When you are young you learn things from your experiences and what you see. Looking at what i saw at the temple i thought it was ok to eat meat and drink as long its not done in the temple. Go upstairs sit down for 5 mins and then go downstair and have some langer chat and go home. By going to darshan das i have learnt alot, and now when i go to the temple i know and understand the teachings, i sit there for hours and listen and i feel peaceful inside. I don't eat meat, drink or anything like that, as our bodies are temple too, cos god lives within us all, you don't want to be a walking grave yard. They never big them selfs up, its like going to school you have one master and then teachers and pupils. The master is the gurbani, and we are pupils of the gurbani. Darshan das is just a teacher. They don't want to be workshiped, they say workship the gurbani, gurbani is everything. They are joining people to the faith. I think you should go and see for your self and do research and speak to them and clear up and understand what they are doing. Its well enough reading things about them on the internet its not fact, or hearing things about them from people.

Seems, like you're not reading what i've written. Why do they need a dera/bhavan or whatever they call it? When there are Gurdwaras they can preach in. And why be called 'Darshan Das' instead of what his name is E.G Darshan Singh Khalsa (doubt he was a khalsa) And what's the point of the tilak, Where in the Gurbani does it state that?

why do u think people turn to a dera to appreciate and understand their religion through a different medium? if a giani preaches from gurbani daily, and then indulges in meat aand drink in the evening (yes ive seen it with my own eyes!!!), why would one sit down and listen to what HE is preaching when the giani cant comit to his faith himself? 'they should practise what they preach' and this is the problem. this deters followers from the temple and they find an alternative method of folowing and practising their faith. this is not a result of brainwashing from the baba. many find it easy to point the finger at others. why cant we admiit that the 'rumours' we here bout politics, about giani's, etc ARENT JUST RUMOURS. truth hurts and it is very sad that this happens in our own sikh temples. this is why people are fed up with this atmosphere. they find inner peace elsewher whilst still reciting satnam wahiguru and doing their simran devoting themselves to NANAK. doesnt have to be via a giani in a gurudwara.

    • I agree. Unfortunately we have people in our community who go out of their way to p1ss of Hindus by helping Muslims even when these Muslims were the ones in the wrong. Case in point, Simranjeet Singh Mann needlessly got involved in the Muzaffarnagar riots issue when he went to tour Muslims refugee camps to show his support for them against the Jats who they had been involved in riots with. Ravi Singh of Khalsa Aid also has the same mindset. He deliberately helps Muslims and his attempt to equate the Delhi riots of 2020 with the genocide of 1984 shows his malicious intent. 
    • Transform your mind and body in 60 days with a fun but profoundly revamping work up Upon waking up  you will cleanse our bowels completely (no more bloating and constipation) and then move on to  Simple Meditation (15 minutes) Strength training and Kickboxing (15 minutes) Yoga and Breathwork (pranayama) (20 minutes) There is a whole food diet plan included with easy, inexpensive, healthy and delicious recipes. We will eliminate wheat, oil, sugar and animal products. Will grow healthy gut biome with fermented products such as saurkraut and beet kwas. We will be deeply detoxing with intermittent fasting , one 24 to 36 hour fast a week and bowel cleanse using warm salt water( drank orally). Also we will be emotionally detoxing with letting go and deep forgiveness.  Mentally you will develop present-moment awareness, loving-kindness, joy, peace, and gratitude. Also, you will break free of addictive behaviours like phone usage, eating and overthinking. Physically you will develop functional strength, balance, a strong core and learn self-defense . You should have way more energy while feeling tranquil at the same time (something you probably have never experienced before) We will be journaling at the end of the day as well as doing deep relaxation to have sound sleep that leaves you feeling completely recharged upon waking up. Evening spiritual discourses - understanding concepts like karma, waheguru (supreme consciousness) , afterlife and our purpose in the universe. The benefits you should notice are Mental  Deep tranquility and a quieter mind Better sleep Vibrant energy  More patience and compassion Better concentration and memory Creativity and Intuition Physical A very healthy digestive system with complete bowel emptying Lowering of blood pressure (if you have hypertension)  Lower cholesterol Normalizing of blood glucose Weight loss (if you are overweight)  More muscle tone and strength healthier skin better immunity Healthier breathing There will be a facebook group for your questions as well as discussions. Keep posting your pics on a weekly basis.  The MBT60 program is free for now, donations are welcome (most of which will go to a charity) if you feel the benefits. MAY ALL BEINGS BE HAPPY AND HEALTHY.   https://youtu.be/YAlrlhIlbBk
    • How does it mention the Guru giving the Gurgadhi? Was this wrriten by the Guru after giving the Gurgadhi?
    • https://www.hindustantimes.com/cities/delhi-news/gogi-vs-tillu-delhi-gangsters-bond-that-ended-in-bloodshed-101632507909325.html DELHI NEWS Gogi vs Tillu: Delhi gangsters’ bond that ended in bloodshed Jitender Maan alias Gogi and Sunil Maan alias Tillu Tajpuria, once childhood friends and student politicians, went on to become deadly rivals, and for more than a decade they fought a bloody turf war that spilled blood on the streets of Haryana and the national Capital By Prawesh Lama UPDATED ON SEP 25, 2021 07:38 AM IST   Jitender Maan alias Gogi and (right) Sunil Maan alias Tillu Tajpuria. (Sourced) The life of gangster Jitender Maan alias Gogi,30, shot dead by his rivals inside the Rohini court on a rainy Friday afternoon, is one of dreams, friendship, student politics, money, guns, and gore.   Gogi was once a teenager who excelled in sport (volleyball and athletics), represented his schools at several competitions, and got admitted to Delhi University (DU) on the sports quota. There, he and his closest childhood friend, Sunil Maan, got sucked into student politics. Maan is now better known as gangster Tillu Tajpuria in police records. The two went on to become deadly rivals, and for more than a decade, their names can be found together in police files and case papers that detail how they have fought a bloody turf war that spilled blood on the streets of Haryana and the national Capital. Had the two not stepped into he world of student politics, their paths would not have crossed, and their names may not have been in Delhi Police’s most wanted list. Perhaps Gogi would not have been inside court number 207 at Rohini on Friday, where two gunmen, dressed as lawyers, waited for him and then shot him dead. Tajpuria, who is in Tihar, is now the prime suspect in his friend-turned-rival Gogi’s murder. CRIME AND COLLEGE Gogi had at least 19 cases of murder, robbery, extortion and arms act against him. Police believe the actual number of murders that Gogi masterminded could be much more, as the families of several victims did not report the crime out of fear. Police files say Gogi ran an extremely sophisticated organised crime syndicate, was involved in extortion, in collecting ransom and protection money, and in vehicle theft. A police officer who has questioned Gogi in the past, said, “Before he became a top gangster, he had a name in the Alipur village of outer Delhi, but it was for good reasons. He studied in a local government school and was a budding volleyball ball player and an athlete. He said he had wanted to represent India in the national games. He also claimed to have represented Delhi in the national games as an athlete. But we never found proof of it. Everything was going well for him till he started visiting the campus of the nearby Swami Shradhhanand College in Alipur around 2007.” Gogi did not spend his time at campus alone. His childhood friend Sunil Mann accompanied him. “They hung out together since their childhood,” the officer added. The circumstances of how the two friends crossed paths is unclear -- the two never told police about it. But it is clear that they fought during the college 2007 university elections. Police said the two friends ended up supporting two different candidates for the post of the vice president for the college. “Tajpuria and Gogi did not contest the elections directly, but they were providing muscle power to the candidates. It is unclear why the two decided to support two different candidates, when they were such close friends. This is when they got involved with local criminals. In fact, the first case registered against Gogi is also that of a fight between him and other students outside the college Alipur in 2008. He was booked for attempted murder then,” a second officer said. Until 2013, Gogi was still a small-time criminal known only in pockets of outer Delhi. His rise to the number 1 on Delhi Police’s wanted list was a result of the death of gangster Neetu Dabodia in 2013, and later arrest of Dabodia’s rival, Neeraj Bawana, in 2015. Before the Tillu- Gogi gang war, the two other rival gangs --Dabodia and Bawana – fought bloody turf wars on the city streets. “There was a vacuum after Dabodia’s death and Bawana’s arrest. Gogi and Tillu Tajpuria slowly rose to become the top gangsters after 2015. Around 2013, Gogi met another Delhi university student Kuldeep Fajja (he was shot dead in a police encounter five months ago). They met at the Shraddhanand College during the DUSU election. Unlike Gogi, Fajja was an educated person, with a B.Sc from Kirori Mal College. Fajja taught Gogi how to using internet calls and social media to spread fear. Fajja and Gogi then committed multiple murders, extortion, contract killing. Fajja, too, is responsible for Gogi’s rise. The two men had vowed to finish the Tillu gang,” said the second officer quoted above. On the morning of March 3,2020 when police arrested Gogi from an upscale housing society in Gurugram, Fajja too, was inside the house, according to police records. MURDER MOST FOUL The most notable contract killing that Gogi was part of was that was Haryana singer Harshita Dahiya on October 10, 2017 in Panipat. Though police said it was a contract killing planned by Dahiya’s brother-in-law, Dinesh Karala. Gogi did not take any money from the man but extracted one promise – Karala must kill members of the Tillu gang. On June 18,2018, during an exchange of firing between Tillu and Gogi gang members in Burari, four people were killed. Of the four, two were passersby who had no connection with the two gangs. “ Over the years, Gogi become more daring, as was evident from the shoot-outs on the city streets in broad daylight. Less than a month before he was arrested last year, Gogi and his gang members stopped a man, whom they suspected of supporting his rivals, and fired 48 rounds in the middle of the market. Of the 48 bullets, the man was hit with 26 bullets killing him on the spot,” said a third police officer. For the last 18 months, Gogi was in prison lodged in the jail’s high-risk cell. But police continued to received reports of traders receiving extortion calls from inside prison. In June last year, a businessman in Rohini informed police about receiving WhatsApp calls from Gogi demanding ₹5 crore as protection money. Prison officers had reportedly found three cell phones in his possession. On Friday, after news reports of Gogi murder broke out, several police officers who met the man said it was ironic that Gogi, once Delhi’s most wanted gangster, was shot dead inside court. The officers cited August 9, 2016 police report prepared. It read -- “there is strong apprehension that Jitender Gogi will eliminate members of rival gang and can attack Sunil Tillu (Tajpuria) at the time of his production before the court from jail.” Five years later, the notice came true. But, on Friday, September 24, 2021, Gogi was the victim.
