Satyarth Prakash on Sikhism (Sikh Religion)

Satyarth Prakash Chapter 11 - Samullas 11, सत्यार्थ प्रकाश ग्यारहवां समुल्लास

पृष्ठ 307 से 309 तक समुल्लास-11 में सिख धर्म के प्रवर्तक श्री गुरु नानक देव जी को मुर्ख, (दम्भी) ढोंगी, अभिमानी लिखा है तथा श्री गुरु ग्रंथ साहेब जी को मिथ्या गपोंड़ों का संग्रह लिखा है कि उसमें लिखा ज्ञान अविद्ववानों का है।

In chapter 11 of Satyarth Prakash Swami Dayanand Saraswati has made very disgraceful comments on Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and on Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. It has been written that it is a book of jokes and all those people whose compilations are included in Shri Guru Granth Sahib are unknowledgeable.

Surely this Swami Dayanand Saraswati had no idea about the magnanimity of great souls like Guru Nanak Dev Ji who achieved God Almighty. Either it was sheer ignorance or may be he wrote this book under the effect of cannabis as Swami Dayanand was addicted to cannabis otherwise no sound minded person would make such comments about Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Especially if someone is claiming to be religious then that person would never undermine the status of other religions whether it be Sikhism, Islam or Christianity.

Its a disgrace that people follow the teachings of this man and surely they do this under the effect of ignorance.

This book (Satyarth Prakash) should be banned.

Excerpt from Satyarth Prakash Page 307-309

Rather than having concrete knowledge or information Swami Dayanand Saraswati has made assumptions on Guru Nanak Dev Ji which shows the level of his immature thinking. In commenting on the verses from Shri Guru Granth Sahib he has shown his own lack of understanding of Bani from Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

Swami Dayanand Saraswati has also commented on Guru Nanak Dev Ji's knowledge of Sanskrit whereas in translating the Vedas he himself has done most translations wrongly. His own knowledge of Sanskrit was appalling. The currently available translations of the four Vedas done by Swami Dayanand are a living proof of the same.

He is just enjoying fake publicity whereas most of the knowledge given by Swami Dayanand Saraswati is flawed and baseless and in some cases crosses the heights of immorality. Chapter 4 (Samullas 4) of Satyarth Prakash is the most immoral account given by any Swami. Obvious doesn't need evidence.
