Watch this video on YouTube.

Bhai Ranjit Singh, Ex-Jathedar, Akal Takht speaks in detail on Sri Dasam Granth.

Quoting extensively from Sikh historical sources Jathedar Bhai Ranjit Singh narrates the history of the composition and compilation of Sri Dasam Granth.

He describes that the banis of Guru Gobind Singh ji were present in the form of pothis during Guru Sahib’s time which were compiled by Bhai Mani Singh ji in a beerh. And another beerh was prepared by Baba Deep Singh. He questions those who cast aspersions on the wisdom of Bhai Mani Singh and Baba Deep Singh.

Bhai Ranjit Singh states that the banis enshrined in Sri Dasam Granth inculcate the spirit of Guru Gobind Singh Ji in the Sikhs and give a separate identity to the Khalsa. He says that the concept of deg tegh fateh, panth-granth, all comes from Sri Dasam Granth.

Bhai Ranjit Singh says that the authorship of Sri Dasam Granth had never been an issue in Sikh history and there is not an iota of doubt that the banis are from the pen of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. He says that the latest trend of questioning the bani and history has erupted due to the weakness of Panch Pradhani system and of our institutions.

He says that if we can recite the gazals and writings of Bhai Nand Lal, Bhai Gurdas, Bhai Santokh Singh on stages then what is the problem with this bani which gives a separate identity to the Khalsa.
