Guru Gobind Singh Sahib’s Final Order Be Followed
Submission by Balbir Singh Sooch, Advocate, Ludhiana 

“After Elevation of Adi Granth to Guru Granth Sahib:The Adi Granth was conferred the title of "Guru of the Sikhs" by the tenth Guru, Guru Gobind Singh, in October, 1708, and thereafter rest everything is secondary and optional for Sikhs.  

Guru Gobind Singh Guru (1666-1708), the tenth Guru in Sikh tradition, affirmed the sacred text Adi Granth as his successor, terminating the line of human Gurus, and elevating the text to Guru Granth Sahib. From that point on, the text remained not only the holy scripture of the Sikhs, but is also regarded by them as the living embodiment of the Ten Gurus.”  

The role of Guru Granth Sahib, as a source for all purposes including the ‘Sikh definition’ and the ‘Sikh Rehat Maryada’ or guide of prayer, is pivotal in worship in Sikhism. Guru Gobind Singh officially ordained Guru Granth Sahib as the final and perpetual Guru of Sikhs.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib is being accepted as the universal spiritual leader of Sikhs and also for its all followers keeping in mind the secular nature of Sikh faith.  

Don’t you all the enlightened and the neutral Sikhs feel that in face of the order of Guru Gobind Singh Sahib, bracketed in comas above, the following questions arise and required to be discussed positively? 

Have the ‘Sikh definition’ the ‘Sikh Rehat Maryada’, the Sikh psyche etc in view of Guru’s unambiguous order not to be redefined or changed moderately within and subject to the teachings of Sri Guru Granth Sahib only? 

Have any contradictory thoughts not to be and must be kept apart in this modern age as being considering these personal, suiting to any individual or group or organisation who is free to adopt his own way of living i.e. secondary and optional so long it does not violate the secular nature of Sikh faith?  

Why to involve Sikhs in confusion or divert on another route to create division in Sikhs by raising such questions whether ‘the second Sikh Scripture and British Connection – Fact or Fiction’ or similar issues in this modern age, in face of the unambiguous order of Guru Gobind Singh sahib? 

Do Sikhs feel that Guru Gobind Singh sahib left something valuable knowledge, spiritual as well as worldly, uncovered in his order that lacuna could only be fulfilled by the second respected scripture of the Sikhs after Sri Guru Granth Sahib?  

That, in view of the above, whether the second respected scripture of the Sikhs after Sri Guru Granth Sahib was and is required to be enforced on all Sikhs forcibly? 

The answer of all the enlightened and the neutral Sikhs has to and must be that Guru Gobind Singh Sahib’s final order be followed by all Sikhs to prove prctically and without any ambiguity that they are more liberal and secular in the world while following the teachings of Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
