THE HIJACKING OF SIKHI
The Complete Story of the Distortion, Corruption and Adulteration of Sikhi over a 300-year period.


Sikhi as it is practiced today, is no longer the Sikhi that was taught to us by our Gurus. It is a spirituality that stands distorted, corrupted and tainted. The messages of its scripture – Gurbani – have been distorted through vedic, yogic and puranic slants in interpretations and translations; its history muddled in unbelievable tales of miracles called sakhis, it’s general conduct dictated by an institutionalized clergy – a group that was soundly critiqued by our Gurus, and its religious practices have come to consist of those smuggled in from rejected and discarded rituals of pre-1469 practices. It’s a faith that has been Hijacked from its unique path and equally distinct goals. It is a Godly spirituality that has been corrupted into a clergy-concocted and clergy-dominated religious dogma. This book tells the story of how, when and why this happened. A must read for every Sikh and a must have book in every Sikh home. Foreword by Gyani Jarnail Singh Arshi. Hard Cover 420 pages.
