Unfortunate to affiliate the title tenth Guru with Ramayana: SGPC chief secretary
The affiliation of the Ramayana with the title of Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru has damage Sikh sentiments, stated the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) chief secretary advocate Harjinder Singh Dhami in a press assertion issued from the SGPC workplace on Tuesday.
Harjinder Singh Dhami stated, “Sri Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru didn’t write any Ramayana however some persons are hurting Sikh sentiments by associating Ramayana with his title. Guru Gobind Singh Ji within the Dasam Granth’s part about ‘Chaubis Avatar’ (twenty 4 Sanatani avatars (incarnations)), has talked about one about Ramavatar.”
“Only the characters in it (Ramavatar) are from Ramayana, however the yudh vidhan (conflict structure), particulars and saroop (type) are utterly completely different. While laying the inspiration stone of Ram Mandir, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had talked about the Ramayana written by the tenth Guru, which was strongly opposed by Sikh establishments and students. We demand an instantaneous ban on the guide and attraction to the Sangat (devotees) to be vigilant”, stated SGPC chief secretary Harjinder Singh Dhami.
