There is a movement underway to undermine the very roots of our beloved Sikhi. These people have no love for truth and are willing to say any lie they need to in order to promote their false, twisted version of Sikhi.
Not too long ago, I happened to come across one of their videos. In this video they do nindya of many of our panths greatest sevadars. In Guru Granth Sahib ji beant beant (numerous) Shabads tell us to respect and to learn from sants. Some people even go so far as to say that sants don't exist and Guru Granth Sahib ji is the only sant. However, our Guru Granth Sahib ji, in no uncertain terms, calls Bhagat Prahlaad ji a sant, as well as Bhagat Kabir ji, proving that the word sant is now, and was in the past, meant to be used for individuals who join us to the Guru's feet (in most cases). If people truly did see Guru Granth Sahib ji as a sant (or their Guru), then they would respect the Guru's word.
Many of these organisations use the word Singh Sabha in their name, attempting to capitalise off the good reputation of Singh Sabha Movement from over 100 years ago. They also often use the word missionary in their names (but not always). This particular video which I've linked to just to show you how these people think is from a group called the Singh Sabha Canada, a branch of Singh Sabha International.
The hate filled, fact twisting video is available from the link - just click the title of the post.
