A Shradhanjali Samaroh for Satguru Jagjit Singh Ji was held today at Sri Jiwan Nagar, Distt Sirsa, Haryana, where Namdhari Sangat from across the country as well as from around the globe gathered in thousands to pay their obeisance to their departed Guru. This Shradhanjali Samaroh was prompted by the fact that Bebe Ji, Thakur Dalip Singh Ji, his family and Namdhari Sangat in thousands were denied the right of Antim Darshan of their Guru at the funeral held at Sri Bhaini Sahib near Ludhiana on 14th of December 2012. [Bebe Ji is widow of Maharaja Bir Singh Ji. Late Maharaj Bir Singh was the younger son of Satguru Pratap Singh Ji & the younger brother of Satguru Jagjit Singh Ji. Thakur Dalip Singh is elder brother of Thakur Uday Singh, both Dalip and Uday are sons of Late Maharaj Bir Singh ji]
The despicable attitude of the Parbandhaks at Sri Bhaini Sahib in the manner they addressed the Namdhari Sangat during the last week of Satguru Ji’s illness and the denial of the last Darshans of their Guru before the funeral raised tempers amongst all that had been waiting for days at the gates of the Namdhari Appolo hospital Ludhiana and later at Sri Bhaini Sahib. The international Sangat had travelled miles to pay their respects to their Guru but unfortunately the Parbandhaks forgoing the responsibilities of a Gurudwara towards the Sangat decided to complete the antim saskar in haste without giving sufficient time to all in transit to reach the Gurdwara at Sri Bhain Sahib.
Sri Bhaini Sahib is the headquarters of the Namdharis, and the most revered Gurdwara for all Namdharis. Every member of the Sangat is entitled by the Guru to come to the Gurdwara at any time to seek blessings. The barricading of the Gurdwara with the help of police force that seemed to exceed the Sangat in numbers during the funeral destroyed the sanctity of the shrine and raised questions on the motives of the ‘Parbandhaks’. The last rites of the Guru being completed in such short notice and the denial to the Sangat to do Antim Darshan of the Guru, raises doubts and seeks answers to these dubious questions.
Thakur Dalip Singh Ji to whom Satguru Ji was not just a spiritual leader but his mentor, guide and foremost ‘A Father’, was denied Darshan during his illness at Sri Bhaini Sahib and at the SPS Apollo hospital. The reasons for this embargo on Thakur Dalip Singh’s family by the Parbandhaks are still unknown. It is alleged that in addition, to enforce this embargo, they asked the Superintendent of Police Ludhiana to assist them in implementing the same, who in turn sent an order instructing Thakur Ji to leave Ludhiana as his presence in the city could cause unrest.
Repeated attempts over the last few years by Thakur Dalip Singh & the Sangat to reconcile the matter in the better interest of the Sangat and the Panth have been rejected by Bhaini Sahib Parbandhaks, specifically a handful of individuals, and without any reasonable explanation. Many a time they have said ‘There have been many divisions in several Panths in the past, including the Namdhari Panth, a few more would not matter’ leaving no room for reconciliation. This leaves no doubt that their intention is more in their own interest than that of the Sangat and hence against the very spiritual intent and existence of a Gurudwara. Thakur Dalip Singh and the Sangat were still pursuing towards a ‘collaborative approach’ for the Bhog of Sri Satguru Ji, whose demise has been a huge setback to the panth and left many in grief. But the absolute refusal from their (Bhaini Sahib) end to even consider allowing Bebe ji, Thakur Ji and many others from the Namdhari Sangat to enter the premises of the Gurudwara, which has been turned into a fort with more police force than has ever been at any religious shrine for such an occasion. This prompted the Sangat to come together at Sri Jiwan Nagar for the Shradhanjali Samroh today in an atmosphere apt for the occasion with all members of the panth. The Sangat along with Thakur Dalip Singh Ji made multiple attempts to invite Mata Chand Kaur Ji to the Shradhanjali Samaroh at Jiwan Nagar as the Guru Mata of the Sangat, but none were accepted.  
Today Sangat has gathered here from around the world- USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Thailand, Dubai as well from several areas of India such as Ludhiana, Amritsar, Jalandhar, Tarn Tarn, Mukerian, Dera Baba Nanak, Pathankot, Chandigarh, Mohali, Yamuna Nagar, Sirsa, Hisar, Karnal, Delhi Panipat, Mandi Saket and SunderNagar (HP), Bazpur, Kanpur, Gwalior, Jaipur, Sri Ganga Nagar, Malout, Himmatpura to name a few, in an earnest attempt to request Thakur Dalip Singh Ji to take care of the Sangat after the demise of Satguru Ji and be their spiritual leader and lead this Panth towards a more. This is an excerpt of what has been said from the dais as well as told by different devotees, including some of the Soobaa’s of Panth present at the congregation to SirsaNews.
