Guru Granth Sahib Beadbi sacrilege

Recommended Posts

 The granthis should have refused to take Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji to the venue. They shouldn’t be participating in the beadbi.

Its all about the money, and the fact that we now have too many saroops of the Guru, and the quality of respect we give the Guru has also declined. Back in the day, there were only a few saroops, and Sikhs had to come from far and wide just to see a physical roop of the Guru, and thus had way more respect. Since the saroops were also smaller in number, Sikhs could also dedicate more resources and manpower to defending and properly maintaining each saroop. All this beadbi would be far less prevalent in the past, and historically one of the only way a saroop had beadbi done to it was when it was literally destroyed by an enemy army, and rarely if ever by other Sikhs.

Yeah, you may be right. You hear about a boatload of saroops being shipped out to someplace, how many saroops do we need exactly?

Im not sure exactly about the specifics in terms of distance, becuase it depends on the locations of the Sikh Sangat. For example, it wouldn't make sense to space out saroops in somewhere like Columbia that barely has a Sikh population. I do know that we definitely need less than we have in most Sikh populated places, especially Punjab. When I was on my Punjab tour last summer, we were driving and sometimes there was a Gurdwara every 10-15 minutes, and most of the time they are empty of sangat. 

Even in the west, for example, BC, we have more Gurdwaras then we would possibly need. In Vancouver and surrey alone, we have enough Saroops for all of Canada.

saw this video today its quite viral on social media. Thought i share it on here.

"Beadbi (sacrilege) committed at Ganga Nagar, India. Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is Parkaash whilst DJ plays music and “Sangat” dances outside the Darbar Sahib"

While the family who was having the paath done should have their head examined, so should the paathis. With their round puggs and cholas. They had no feeling whatsoever that it's a beadbi of Guru Sahib being used like a kind of "good-luck charm" at somebody's party?

Right at the point where somebody came to the Gurdwara and said they need to have a saroop "deliverd" to a marriage palace, somebody should have used their brain.

Hanji, unfortunately it’s always about money, ignorance and selfishness 🙁

Isn't it about education ? If instead of sggs they had some esteemed 'baba' sitting in that hall then there would be no music playing or dancing. It's about respect and many folks just see a book instead of guru ji incarnate.
