Another missionary to mislead the Sangat this time sponsored and brought by SIKH NAUJAWAN SABHA MALAYSIA (see Figure 1). The video shows that the speaker is aligned to the Kala Afghana Ideology.
Looks like the SNSM is also a member of the Kala Afghana Brigade; out to enforce the Kala Afghana Ideology in Malaysia.

The video reveals the findings about Singh Sahib Giani Ranjodh Singh who is presently in Malaysia doing Gurbani Katha under the invite of the Sikh Naujawan Sabha.
The video is made up of extracts from the kathaas and interviews by Giani Ranjodh.
This reveals that Giani Ranjodh is another of the new age missionary college missionary who is aligned with the Kala Afghana Ideology. For an overview of this KA ideology please see LINK.
ABOUT THE GIANI JI
Some key points from Giani Ji’s own words.
- He started to go out of India in 1991 and New Zealand was the first place of visit.
- He is from Phagwarda and was born into a Brahmin family.
- He studied the Puranas and related teachings and found they did not suit his mind.
- He then studied Sikhism and found it suitable and became a Sikh.
- He studied at the Sahibzada Jujar Singh Missionary College Roopard from 1983 to 1986.
COMMONLY USED PHRASES
There are some commonly used phrases found throughout Giani Ranjodh’s lectures/interviews. Two in particular stand out.
- karam kaand (rituals more so related to faith)
- studied the Puranas and associated literature for 25 years
Karam kaand is ritualistic practices mainly of a faith. In particular when Giani Ranjodh refers to this he is actually meaning Brahamvaad (the word commonly used by Kala Afghana in his books Bipran Ki Reet see LINK).
He sees the practices in Sikhi exactly as per the Kala Afghana Ideology. To him for example
- doing paath and NAAM Simran (see LINK, LINK)
- bathing in sarovars, visiting Hemkunt (see LINK)
- banees in Dasam Granth (see LINK, LINK)
- reject the 5 banees of Amrit ceremony (see LINK)
- practices described inSikh Rehat Maryada (see LINK)
- Akhand Path and other religio-cultural functions in Gurdwaras (see LINK)
- our Gurus performing inexplicable events e.g. Guru Harkrishen and Chaju event (see LINK)
- the concept of reincarnation espoused in Gurbani (see LINK, LINK, LINK)
are all what he terms as karam kaand which means the same thing as Brahamvaad.
Studied Puranas and associated literature
He claims to have studied the Puranas and associated literature. The associated literature means other Vedic literature which includes the Vedas, Upanishads etc. By him claiming this frequently in his talks/interviews, he gives an impression that he is very knowledgeable in the Brahmanical faith which he says he studied for 25 years.
ALIGNMENT WITH THE KALA AFGHANA IDEOLOGY
Giani Ranjodh supports the following miscreant anti-Sikhi anti-Gurmat individuals.
- Gurbaksh Singh Kala Afghana
- Ragi Darshan
- Inder Ghagga
- Sarabjit Dhunda
He calls them intellectuals, scholars who are trying to keep the Panth pure (nirmal) and unadulterated (Khaalas) because they question the long standing tenets and practices of the Sikh religion. He is not happy that these people have been excommunicated or reprimanded (by the Akaal Takhat).
He claims that those (from the Akaal Takhat and the other Takhats), who have excommunicated or reprimanded these miscreants, are manmateyay. And he incites the Sangat to protest and stop these people (i.e. those from the Takhats).
DESTRUCTION OF AND REWRITING HISTORICAL RECORDS
Giani Ranjodh rejects the historical version of Guru Harkrishan and Chhajju event. See LINK for details.
Briefly (reference The Encyclopaedia of Sikhism Ed. Harbans Singh, Patiala Uni, 1992) historically the event is as follows.
The Guru made a halt in the village of Panjokhra on his way to Delhi.
In that village lived a learned Pandit, Lal Chand by name, who came to see the Guru and spoke with derision: “It is said that you sit on the gaddi of Guru Nanak.
But what do you know of the old religious texts?”
Figure 2: Guru Har Krishen Ji: “Be humble not egoistic”
Chhajju Ram, the illiterate, dark-skinned village water supplier, happened to pass by at that moment. Guru Har Krishan asked Dargah Mall to call him. As Chhajju Ram came, the Guru enquired if he would explain to the Pandit the gist of the Bhagavad Gita. The illiterate villager astonished everyone by his lucid commentary on the sacred book. Lal Chand’s pride was overcome.
What does this MISCREANT say about this event:
Chhajju was a scholar in Geeta because he has been attending Guru Harkrishen Ji’s sermons.
Is this MISCREANT MOORAKH implying that Guru Ji was teaching the GEETA in his sermons?
This MOORAKH is therefore implying that he has NO FAITH in the BLESSING of our GURU.
This miscreant does not believe that Guru Ji blessed Chhajju with the “light” knowledge to explain the Geeta.
It is a SHAME that SNSM is inviting lecturers of such a mediocre calibre lacking the TRUE KNOWLEDGE of, and SHARDA in, Gurbani and our Gurus, to MISLEAD the SANGAT.
It can be PUT TO THIS MISCREANT MOORAKH that his problem is to do with his REASON, LOGIC and CRITICAL THINKING based Kala Afghana Ideology that has resulted in his mediocre calibre.
Later on in the video he also questions the event of Guru Nanak and Bebe Nanaki when Guru Nanak went west. This is the Sakhi when Bebe Nanaki, longing for Guru Nanak made “parshada (roti)” for her brother. Bebe Nanaki was blessed with his presence on this occasion.
He also takes a swipe at other inexplicable events in Guru Nanak’s life indicating that they are all MURDA VICHAR.
He chooses to question events related to our Gurus. This is blasphemous.
Is he a GURU KA SIKH? It does not seem to be the case.
There is zero SHARDA in this mediocre calibre MOORAKH.
THE STORY ABOUT SAGE AGASTYA
The knowledgeable? Giani Ranjodh Singh relates the story of sage Agastya and the ocean, which he claims is from the Puranas. He says Sage Agastya drank all the water in two and half gulps from the ocean and then filled it up again by urinating in it.
This story is not from the Puranas but from the Mahabharata.
Reference: The Mahabharata of Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, Translated into English Prose from the Original Sanskrit Text by Kisari Mohan Ganguli (1883-1896)
This story from the Mahabharata is related below.
The story is about sage Agastya, the son of Mitra, and Varuna. The story is not from the Puranas but from the Mahabharata (from the reference Book 3 Vana Parva Sections CIV to CVI). Sage Agastya was requested by the deities to drink up the ocean so they could slay the enemies of the gods. The sage went on to empty the ocean by drinking the water (the reference does not say in TWO and HALF GULPS). The reference states
“Having spoken these few words, the unswerving offspring of Mitra and Varuna, full of wrath, began to drink up the sea, while all the worlds stood observing (the deed). Then the gods, together with Indra, seeing how the sea was being drunk up, were struck with mighty amazement …”
The Mahabharata does not state that he then filled the ocean by pissing, OOPS, URINATING INTO IT. The reference states as follows as to the filling of the ocean.
“It will take a long course of time for the ocean to resume its wonted state; the occasion will be furnished by the agnates of the great king Bhagiratha. Hearing the words of the (universal) grandfather (Brahma), all the foremost gods went their way biding the day (when the ocean was to be filled again).”
There you see, this MOORAKH goes again, now FALSIFYING Vedantic records after having FALSIFIED SIKH history.
AND the Giani Ji claims he studied the Puranas for 25 years.
Well he missed (or rather pissed) the mark by a mile.
I tend to think he is giving the Sangat a load of “bull****” MISLEADING them in his lectures.
Does he think the Sangat consist of FOOLS? Is this the case?
He terms the story “murda vicharan” meaning dead or useless concept.
He is denigrating the Vedantic faith. Is it prudent to denigrate another faith? Our Gurus never taught us to do this.
MURDA VICHARAN (dead or useless concept)
Now he terms the writings of Guru Gobind Singh compositions in the Dasam Granth MURDA VICHARAN.
He is denigrating the Dasam Granth.
Denigrating the Dasam Granth is also one of the main Kala Afghana Ideology missions.
PAATH AND NAAM SIMRAN
Here Giani Ranjodh clearly states doing path (naam Japna) is karam kaand. Regularly doing path (mith kay path karna) is useless.
Let us see what Guru Har Rai said about this.
One day Satguru Sri Guru Har Rai Maharaj’s Sikhs inquired whether those who read the Guru’s hymns without understanding them derived any spiritual advantage there from.
Guru Ji gave no reply at the time, and the next morning whilst travelling, on a level plain on his way he saw pieces of a pot, which had held butter. The sun was melting the butter on the potsherds.
Guru Ji took one of them in his hand and said, ‘You see, my Sikhs, these are old potsherds, but when they are heated, the butter that has adhered to them rapidly melt. As the grease adheres to the potsherds, so do the Guru’s hymns to the heart of his Sikhs.
At the hour of death the Guru’s instruction shall assuredly bear fruit. Whether understood or not, it has within it the seed of salvation. Perfume clings to the broken vase.
The meaning of this parable is that whoever daily reads the Guru’s hymns shall assuredly obtain peace. And even though he does not fully understand them Waheguru will undoubtedly assist him.
See LINK for the full article.
Don’t listen to this moorakh, we should do whatever path we can, however we can to the best of our ability and as Guru Ji says, we will reap the rewards.
To HELL with what this MOORAKH says.
It is clear that Giani Ranjodh is a TRUE BLUE KALA AFGHANA MAN.
This are the type of moorakhs Sikh Naujawan Sabha, Autar, MGC and the other Sikh organisation have chosen to associate with, and to bring them and spew their venom to the Sangat.
This is a real shame.
They are playing Russian roulette with the inner-self, the spiritual being of the Sangat and the future generations.
BEWARE. The WOLVES are coming in the SHEEP’s clothing.
May VAHEGURU bless us all.
