Their core beliefs are:

- Not believe in our history (janam Sakhis)...

Add to that what they actually percieve as Sri Akal Purkh. They say that kudrat ie nature is Akal Purkh, even though Mool Mantar clearly says otherwise.

The only plus side to them is they stress heavy importance on studying the Guru's baani and not just accepting everything on blind faith.

 

Studying without learning and understanding means little. I could study any subject intensely but unless I understand it, what are others going to get from me?

Sikhi starts with blind faith. The faith that there is a God.

They all spout the same rubbish. Dhunda sabhra etc.

Kala Afghana is their earliest founder and he never wrote a book yet dozen books are named as "written" by him.
In USA, he publicly in gurdwara sahib said that Amrit has no power and it cannot even revive a dead mouse. Other preachers are:

  • Amrik Singh Chandigarh
  • Sarbjeet Singh Dhunda
  • Baljeet singh delhi
  • Baljit singh delhi
  • Harpreet singh makhu

Other who most often support them and always stand with them. Some who make prachar money does not publicly declare it due to $$ they make for being politically correctness.

  • Sukhpreet uhdoke
  • Gurdarshan Dhillon (Was supporter earlier but not sure now)
  • Harnek Neki (NZ)
  • Pal Purewal (calendar guy)
  • Sikhri (Harinder)
  • Bhupinder Veer Singh Delhi
  • Dhahdereanwala (101% missionary after attack on him)

Does the notorious Teja Singh Bhasauria fit in as a missionary?

I am surprised with a few of the names there though...

Not really.  There are some threads about him on this site/sikhawareness. Search them.

When I first heard dhunda, it was to do with that kamli kalesh, and I thought he was a good parcharak because he was talking about the Panth and such but when i heard his other stuff about gurmat, i was quite surprised at his views. The guy is a cretin.

The above mentioned names have varying degrees of  "missionary" ideology, not clear cut . Best if we not group them , It will only lead to further consolidation on that side and cause even further polarization. Some of the mentioned individuals are in fact contributing quite positively ( given not all their views are palatable to the samapardaic mind). Udoke and Makhu make some very good youtube videos for example. Udoke's current  June 1984 videos are very informative. 

We have to keep the Panth united at all costs, imo. Dissent and counter views should be given a certain freedom, as long they don't become damaging to our unity. Both sides need to keep the focus on what really matters for the average sikh at the moment. Questions about our history, maryada, philosophy need a mature approach. It really boils down to facts and faith. Whenever any individual from either side strays too far out, they need to be disciplined. Keeping a hawk-eyed approach, instead of dog-eat-dog approach will help in both our unity and future scholarship.

Very true, I'd like to think some of the descriptions are outright exaggerated, or at least don't apply to every individual. Udoke, Makhu do tons for teaching Sikhs of our modern history, to associate them with Neki? I don't agree.

Never understood why these people are referred to as missionaries. I've come to see them as Sikh secularists; supporting Sikh political and social aims but lacking in the spirituality of the belief system. The term 'missionary' has connotations in the English language that denote something entirely different.

Have you heard the audio recording of makhu and neki about Sri Dasme Patshahs Granth Sahib?

Because they are part of the Sikh Missionary College, which is where the term comes from. Like how people how studied in taksals are called taksalis.

Okay, I get it. I thought the term had been borrowed from Christian missionaries, which didn't seem suitable in our case. It's an obvious subversive organisation sponsored by GOI, one of many.

  • Harpreet singh makhu
  • Sukhpreet udoke

Although I have seen Udoke with a lot of hinduphobia in some of his prachar.

And don't know too much about him, but I thought sikhri was some kind of media platform for sikhi information.

  • Sikhri (Harinder)

Harinder carried SGGS around in a wheelie-suitcase in US. He is a rat. He made thousands of dollars out of US gurdwaras with his sikh syllabus.

    • The Gurus had Degh Sevadars. Overtime this has become enough said for me. 
    • I been reading about how akali phoola singh was a fanatical strict sikh who lead equally fanatical akali nihung warriors who hated non-Sikh presence and interference in Sikh governance and lands captured by them. Such was their readiness, daring recklessness and desire for war against the enemies of Sikhs that they often defeated enemies many times their number and strength. Whereas maharajah ranjit singh was more strategically cunning, less about spreading Sikhi, more diplomatic and pluralistic in his approach in matters of religion and the political affairs of the state. Maharajah ranjit singh made treaties with the british invaders (east india company) in the vain hope that: 1) one day there will be a right time to militarily strike the Sikh princely states under british protectorate and unite the whole of punjab region under his rule  2) if that was not possible then the sutlej border between his government and them would be the permanment border and they will be allies in peace with each other. On the other hand akali phoola singh wanted to attack and wipe out the british presence in northern india. And I believe had he had got his way and the Khalsa army was put in his command then the british would have been wiped out within weeks therefore enabling the expansion of Sikh rule to be unchecked and unmatched meaning afghanistan and iran could have easily come under Sikh rule the ruler of persia at the time admitted as such when hearing of battles lead by general nawla and akali phoola singh. The regional powers of the time afghans, Marathas, mughuls were no match for the Sikhs. I believe it was some idle hesitancy of maharaja ranjit singh in not striking while the iron was hot and rather enjoying the good life without having secured his rule is what lead to the downfall of his legacy, the Sikh empire and overall Sikh sovereignty eventually because the British had always eyes on taking over punjab as they needed it in order to get to afghanistan and counter russian empires expansionist plans.
    • I feel like it is to preserve many of our elders traditions. If we simply stop and tell Nihangs to stop taking shaheedi degh, the tradition will simply die out. Additionally, what is really wrong with bhang? Obviously, we should not abuse it but the whole negative stigma behind it really stems from western influence. There is this really good podcast regarding Sri Dasam Guru Granth Sahib Ji and  Dr. Kamalroop Singh speaks to this point.   
    • Beta-ness is a battle of the mind. It can be transcended if it's been encoded via nurture but it takes a herculean effort from an exceptional individual who has a reason to do so.  Would a bhagat or passive spiritual devotee fall into the category of beta? Or does their spiritual awareness preclude them from such company?
