I don't think so. 

I remember, Aarti Aarta was live streamed from Patna Sahib when Guru Gobind Singh ji's 350th Parkash Purab by Sangat or Akaal channel.

P.S. One one occasion, the guy from the Akaal Channel show "Sikhis di Dastaan" criticized the Aarti Aarta as done in Patna Sahib. He was the same guy who debated the Taksali- Jagowaley on the issue of parallel Prakash of Sri Dasam Granth. I think he's a self made pracharak obviously motivated from the RSS conspiracy.

I have went to many  Nihang shaunis as well as in Nirmaley akharas in Punjab and outside. They all practice this.

Another very hinduphobic article written by SGPC/Singh Sabha types no doubt. 

This type of artii is standard practice as mentioned above at Sachkand Hazur Sahib and Patna sahib, as well as amongst the Puratan  Nihang Singh dals.

They are doing aarti of Gurbani ...surely this is satkar of gurbani nothing more or less . Hindu married women do aarti of their husbands , surely we can do the same of our true husband Akal Purakh , anybody would think that any ancient sign of satkar is owned by 'hindus' but it is not ... gurbani tells us that to do dandaut is a punn ...where are these bewakoof people getting their sikhia from Gurbani or missionary bulletins ? next they will be criticising doing matha tekna because the islamic bros do that ... they seriously need to get nam japping and kirtan singing instead of wasting people's time

Depends on context if arti is done as a form of worship then its plain and simple beadhi because SGGS or Dasam Granth are not to be worship as they are not God.

Also arti is a ritual... Guru Nanak Ji made it clear rituals are useless and should be avoided. Now if someone of our so called Sikhs are not understanding the basics of even gurbani and just blindly following the ways of their ancients or elders then they are not pracistism mainstream Sikhism but some off shoot sect version of it much like 3HO and we have seen what kinda fake sikhs they are who use sikh names but keep their christo-judaic real names on official documents and even shown no love or loyalty for defending or fighting for Sikhi and Sikhs when bad/hard times come for the kaum.

I  thought Sikh 'arti' was articulated in Kirtan Sohila?

    • It amazes me how people cannot see any of the above. Are they so blinded by partisanship? Is it only objectionable if the other side does it? So, doesn't that make them bigoted when they adhere to a code of silence when their preferred candidate enacts the same policy? Yet... it's also obvious that Trump is taking baby steps, and he is indeed testing the waters. What his endgame is I have no idea. 
    • which gurbani lines you referring to ? please post.  Also I don't think anywhere any of bhagat, guru ji or bhatts baanis refer to women in any sexual way at all !  It is just example to help us understand jeev-aatma (often referred to as 'jeev-istree' in sikh literature) relationship with param-aatma (god) .  Since we have no inkling of what relationship to god feels like , those who have felt it have tried to pen it in comparison to earthly relationships we do understand ! and what more intimate relation than that of a spouse !  In Gurbani , at places, baani sometimes go along the lines of "Dear sister, tell me how you impressed your husband ? ... he doesn't like me, but likes you, tell me how you impressed ...." something along these lines ! and final closing line is of joy of how the wife finally impresses her husband and the typical shabad would close so ".. and then he came to bed and finally I enjoyed him ... " ..  I think I have read atleast one such shabad although I don't remember which exactly. but trust me, there's no sexual undercurrent in this shabad AT ALL ! it just helps us relate to our bodiless relationship with creator (something we don't understand) by comparing it to a relationship of intimacy that we do understand and often live !  Same can be said of krishna and gopis in hindu literature. Some say krishna had 16500 wives. Its not possible literally ! so again a hidden metaphor . Gopis revolving around krishna in play dance. Trust me, this often gets sexualized, but subtle metaphor is lost, namely that of souls (gopis) enjoying the spiritual bliss of krishna (god) and all of creation revolving around the creator. Rigveda and some upanishads mention the relationship of soul (jeev) and parbrahm as such :  "On a tree bearing multiple fruits, both bitter and sweet, sits two birds of a kind, eternal companions. One , of golden plume and luminous sits serenly on topmost branch, unperturbed and in bliss. On the lower branches, jumping from branch to branch, is its companion, who sometimes eat sweet fruits and sometimes bitter.  When it eats bitter fruits, it sometimes looks up and see its undisturbed , blissed companion of golden feathers. However , it soons forget its sorrows and starts eating sweet and bitter again .  Sometimes, again it eats bitter and this time flies on top branch , approaches the golden plume companion and when it goes very near, it realizes its golden plume is itself only, its inner-most self, the atma !"    the tree refers to body or world, the golden plume companion is the real self, the bird moving from here and there is jeev . the bitter and sweet fruits are dukh and sukh respectively which we bear in this world. When the bird goes on top branch (higher avastha) , it realizes its own self, and attains liberation and bliss, which gurbaani refers to as "mann tu jot saroop hai, apna mool pachaan"  Quite good example these seers made ! many such metaphors throughout in gurbani also.  The bigger question is "Can we believe ? truly?"
    • Exactly, it makes me kinda confused on how in some Gurbani lines it talks about sadhus leaving their wives but then they still keep thinking of women in their mind as a sadhu.. Can the same thing be said for gay people who try to 'leave' the marriage concept while becoming celibate & 'dharmic', but still think of guys? So does that not mean that they should get married as well.... bhul chuk maff kijye
    • Also you assert it took him decades to accept his ineligibility. . Please provide your sources. . How many decades exactly? Are you suggesting he wanted to create a parallel gurgaddi?
    • Now as I have qualified my assertion can you please qualify yours.. what evidence do you have that he didn't accept guru Angad Dev ji?
