DEH SHIVA IS ADDRESSED TO CHANDI AND IS NOT SIKH NATIONAL ANTHEM
Chandi Charitar Ukti Bilas and Dey Shiva bar moye
It is preposterous to say all that is contained in Dasam Granth is the results of Guru Gobind Singh’s own penmanship. Such assertions coming from the anti-Sikh forces can be expected but I feel sorry and offended to go through the pronouncements of such ardent Sikhs as Piara Singh Padam. They have bent over backward to prove that all those were the original creations of
Guruji who had chosen to write under the pen-names of Ram and Siam. If they stress that those are the conceptions of Guruji then why do they plead for their publication in a separate volume? Could Guru Gobind Singh write such stories and such stanzas which the readers would find in Chritropakhyan (Female Attributes) 2 to 20, 402, and some of the Hikayat (Fables) rendered into English by the writer of this article? Not only the Attributes and the Fables, some parts in many other Chapters, such as Krishna Avatar are equally erotic. Could readers sit down with their wives, sisters, mothers and children and read aloud these tales? Most of them are epitome of degradation to womanhood. They are as pornographic as the present day adult movies.
Apart from the obscene substance, there is lot of material, which is quite contrary and offensive to the philosophy of Guru Gobind Singh and the Sikhism as promoted by first nine Masters.
Their presentation in one volume, in conjunction with the Celestial Revelations of the Tenth Master, was the biggest folly of the time. Now, the time has come to dispense with this amalgamation of Bani with the contemptible temporal aspect of life, lest it is too late to prevent irreparable damage to the thinking of our illuminated and inquisitive coming generations, particularly in the west.
