perhaps the earliest demonization of Banda Singh Bahadur is in works of Ratan Singh Bhangu Panth Parkash as he wrote excessively against him

Banda singh bahadur kind of created his own sect and told his followers to start wearing red.  But I think he came back to the khalsa after that.

not saying that there wasn't a split in khalsa at the time of Banda Bahadur Singh but the truth is much more complex and coloured by prejudices of those sikhs who wanted to to maintain brahmin supremacy within sikhi ...you've seen it where hukhname have been altered to say that brahmin sikhs should be held in higher esteem , given better treatment than others

There's some rehitname which has odd things written in them   

Can't remember if it was daya singh or chaupa singh rehitnama but it mentions not marrying outside of your caste, not trusting women or eating food served by them, to have s3x between certain hours of the night 

Don't know  but that kind of stuff sounds a bit off 

Just because it's a historical txt don't mean it's reliable

yep , also that a bibi should do sewa of her Singh as her Parmeshwar , that he will earn mukhti for her ....not something Gurbani has really said  when Guru ji has left each person to do their own work towards mission goal.

Yeah that sounds like bhramin maryada, sort of teachings you would find in the manusmritis. 

Bhramins used to say that a wife can only achieve mukti through serving her husband.

The truth about Baba Banda Singh? A flawed human being who never professed to be anything else. He achieved great feats; he succumbed to ego and made some mistakes, but he stood up for Sikhi and fought for our survival at a time when we needed that brand of presence and leadership. He pales in comparison according to the example set by Guru Sahibs, but then that shouldn't be a surprise. This relatively recent trend of trying to "expose" Baba Banda Singh in order to diminish and poo-poo his achievements by magnifying his mistakes is pure propaganda to rob Sikhs of a key historical figure who was the archetypal shade of grey. Don't fall for the devious tricks and turn on one of our greatest personalities.

Don't knock Bhangu's work. He is a big time Sikh historian. His family credentials are solid, and the work is a masterpiece. 

It's today's simple minded, dualistic thinking brain (influenced by goray) that can't get their head around true unadulterated Sikh historiography like Bhangu's.

He was not a guru and I'm pretty sure he wasn't seen as a saint?  He was a leader just like the misl leaders and M. Ranjit Singh.   They all had flaws but were amazing personalities and leaders. 

Some people have started calling him baba banda singh bahadur,  I don't think he was seen as a baba or sant during his time?

Baba was given to people who were shaheed.

If you need more info on Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, read Dr. Ganda Singh's book.

Rattan Singh bhangu book is not a factual history of the Sikhs.  In his book he starts telling how Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji thought.  No human can say what the Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji was thinking before going into battle with the Mughal forces.  He does this in episode 14 starting at approximately at paragraph 13 to 18.  

In episode 15 Rattan Singh bhangu writes Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji called upon learned Brahmins and astrologers to pick a date when Guru Sahib will select punj pyare. Gurbani says there is no auspicious day as all days are equal.  Yet Rattan Singh bhangu says Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji practices such falsehood.

the mark of a true historian is if what he/she says is truth on kasvati of Gurbachan, Gurbani ...

    • he is another hindu 'holy man' full of misogyny and suspected abuser
    • maybe explain to her that Indira was Gangu Brahmin da descendent so had lifelong hate for gur sikhs and sikhi just like her dad . She was determined to kill us and attack Harmandir Sahib from before 1981 more than three years before Sant ji went to the Akal Takht.
    • because there is a weird power structure in the capital police is under centre control, army is under centre control, water cannons -centre, nothing that could quell the mobs is under DElhi CMs control so Kaejriwal was left standing ...
    • a disturbing parallel with delhi 1984 and delhi 2020 is that at both instances we had the RSS sponsored hinduvta extremist the bajrang dal goons involved (along with congress mobs in 1984) and in both instances the delhi policemen on the streets said they can't do anything except just show that they are their and some even join in hindutva rioting gangs with the rock throwing against the muslim rioters. The delhi police when questioned why aren't you sorting the situation out and attacking the unruly mobs they said ......we dont have ordered to do that. Crazy!!!! So the question then arises... why don't they have orders to intervene? who is the politician or delhi police chief who is allowing riots to go on without intervening and stop them? same thing happened in 1984..... it seems like a systemic problem a structured protocol to ensure minorities are oppressed and put in their place at the blessings of the state. The same thing happens in pakistan and bangldesh with muslim sunni mobs targetting shia or non-muslims
    • Well it’s all over now lol. We apologised to each other. She told me that she hasn’t got anything against sant ji as he did right to fight back the government. It’s because when my mum was small she has seen what was happening in Punjab with her own eyes as is still a bit traumatised by it. I found out today that one of my close relatives who was about my age was picked up by police and never seen again, she’s seen Sikh getting tortured with her own eyes which is why she felt like this. She was just scared of what happened to jaggi with also happen to me as well.  She told me I can keep the pic on lol.  Tbh I’m happy this happened today as now her misconceptions have been cleared. It’s a shame she was taught that sant ji was the problem by the Sikhs in her village, as we know not every Sikh was with sant ji.
