The question of the use of the Purewal Nanakshahi Calendar has been in the forefront of late. There is overwhelming evidence against this Purewal’s calendar. The Purewal Nanakshahi calendar which apparently is largely based on the Indian Saka Calendar has been rejected by the Akaal Takhat in 2010, reverting back to the Bikrami Calendar used by our Gurus.
MGC REJECTS THE ADESH OF AKAAL TAKHAT AND HENCE THE SIKH REHAT MARYADA
MGC has rejected the Sikh Rehat Maryada via its letter dated 17-Nov-2017 advising all the Sangat and Gurdwaras to follow the Nanakshahi calendar. See Figure 1.
This means the Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s Prakash according to MGC should be celebrated on 5-Jan-2018. This is going against the Akaal Takhat Adesh (see Figure 3 which is extract from the English translation of the Adesh).

MGC is also possibly contravening its own constitution with states in the preamble “to preserve, promote, and uphold the doctrines and principles of the Sikh Religion”. The core of these doctrines and principles is stipulated in the Sikh Rehat Maryada.
Likewise SNSM and KDM mentioned in this letter also reject the Sikh Rehat Maryada.
Why do we say they reject the SRM? This will become clear in the ensuing.
SIKH REHAT MARYADA ON THE SUPREME AUTHORITY OF THE SIKHS
The Sikh Rehat Maryada states there are five Takhats, THE SEATS OF HIGH AUTHORITY, for a Sikh (see Figure 2). This means, for a Sikh, the decisions of the Takhats on the matters of Sikhi tenets and practice, are binding.

Rejection of the advice (Gurmatta, Matta, Adesh etc) of the Takhats is tantamount to rejecting the Sikh Rehat Maryada.
WHAT DOES THE AKAAL TAKHAT SAY
The Akaal Takhat had advised that Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s Prakash should be celebrated on 25-Dec-2017 according to the Bikrami Calendar dates. See Figure 3.

It is now clear that MGC rejects the SRM by rejecting theAkaal Takhat adesh.
LIES IN MGC’S LETTER
MGC presents lies to support the Purewal’s Nanakshahi Calendar which has been rejected by the Akaal Takhat.
Most of the background facts in MGC’s letter are a shameful distortion of the truth.
For example consider three of MGC claims
- Fact 1 (bull*** 1) “… Sikhs used the Hindu calendar …” – Sikhs did not use the Hindu calendar. Broadly, both the Sikh and Hindu dates are based on the Bikrami calendar that was introduced by King Vikramaditya and starts in 57BC. It is based on lunar movements. Specifics of the Sikh and Hindu calendar may be different. Note that the Bikrami calendar is similar in conceptual design to the Jewish calendar. Why don’t MGC state that the Sikh Bikrami Calendar uses the Jewish Calendar.
- Fact 2 (bull*** 2) “… a Historically and Scientifically accurate Nanakshahi Calendar, …” – The Purewal Nanakshahi Calendar has been shown to be historically incorrect and the question of a Calendar being SCIENTIFICALLY ACCURATE IS A FARCE. What does Scientifically accurate mean? Definitely a bull*** to appear scientific! Does this mean Karminder’s reason, logic and critical “tinkering” (thinking)?
- Fact 3 (bull*** 3) “… Nanakshahi Calendar fixed drifting Sikh Historical Bikrami dates, …” – The dates from the Purewal’s Nanakshahi have been shown to be ridiculous by experts in Calendar knowhow.
Practically all the “MGC Facts” are actually “bull***” meant to mislead the Sangat and the Gurdwaras.
The appendices attached are extracts or posts from Kala Afghana aligned missionary type individuals or organisations.
This cements the fact that MGC, SNSM and KDM are TRUE BLUE KALA AFGHANA SNAKE BRIGADE.
It is clear that MGC, SNSM and KDM reject the Sikh Rehat Maryada.
The main motive for this rejection is that they are aligned with the Kala Afghana Ideology.
They propose the use of the Indian Saka Calendar based Purewal’s Nanakshahi Calendar which has been rejected by the Akaal Takhat.
To support their proposal of the rejected Purewal’s Nanakshahi Calendar, they list bunch of “Facts” which are actually a shameful distortion of the truth.
Sangat Ji, do you want to support such who hide THEIR TRUTH to propagate THEIR FALSEHOOD by misleading the Sangat.
The decision is yours Sangat Ji.
ONLY YOU SANGAT JI CAN CHECK THIS DESTRUCTION,
The future of Sikhi is in your hands Sangat Ji.
Guru Sadee Rakhiaa Karey. ਗੁਰੂ ਸਾਡੀ ਰਖਿਆ ਕਰੇ.
