Nidar Busted Again.

Recommended Posts

I shared this with several pages on facebook, and share it again on this forum as well. Nidar, the Lost Sikh Warrior, has now fled to Germany after divorcing his wife. His personal affairs his own, the main reason for his departure is probably the fact that his shop has closed down in UK. We all remember how several Nihungs, who he asserted were supportive of his dancing style-cum-"martial art," went on video and refuted his claims. Whilst surfing the net, I chanced upon some of his prior fallacies:

 

"Baba Mohan Singh was unanimously elected as his (Giani Gurbachan SIngh Ji's) rightful successor to Samparda Bhindra. Why else would he still have control of the original shrines and lands at Bhindra established by Baba Sundar Singh?"

Giani Ji's own views:

His website is full of mendacious propaganda. To clear up some his falsities regarding Baba Santa Singh:

"Niddar Singh has propagated the myth that as per the elder Singhs of the Budha-Dal, it was Baba Santa Singh Ji who acquired land for Giani Kartar Singh Ji Bhindranwale to construct the Chowk Mehta Branch of Damdami Taksal upon. Who these Singhs are he fails to mention. The Singhs we have approached substantiate (yes, they actually substantiate) that Giani Kartar Singh Ji became Jathedar of Taksal in '61. Baba Santa SIngh Ji became Jathedar of the Budha-Dal in '69. During '61 Baba Ji was in Ludhiana, conducting Amrit Sanchaars and there is no record of him ever having visited the original Taksali H.Q. let alone interfering in it's affairs."

Niddar is a clear bs artist and from what I've read and seen the shastar vidya he teaches seems to be just a combination of different already existing martial arts from around the world but I wonder about the fighting style and techniques of sikhs during the gurus times. Surely it cant be gatka the ways its practised nowadays with all the useless twirling around and showing your back to your opponent 13mirch do you have any info on how sikhs fought during the gurus time what were there style and techniques like what were the training camps like and how were they trained. Fascinating stuff.

I suggest the Tisarpanth page on fb. They are an alternative strand when compared to the fractured Nihang pages. From what I know, no Gatka was never the martial art of the Gurus. Its just a play; a sport.

Gatka as practiced today still has some of the fundamental movements of the type of shastar vidiya that was done back in the day. I do agree with you though that it is mostly taught as more of a game, but there are still legitimate practitioners. It doesn't really matter too much know as we should all be striving to acquire the knowledge of using firearms (i.e. getting your license and hitting the ranges, airsoft simulation, etc, etc.) Guru Maharaaj kirpa kare hopefully we as a Panth can return to the brave warriors we once were.
