There is just too much going on with Gurbir Singh, even our dedicated page on him is getting full, hence this post here.
Gurbir Singh is getting backlash from people and organizations worldwide. We have already heard from AKJ (USA) who have banned this individual and spoken up about his issues regarding drug abuse and adultery, but now AKJ International have also launched a scathing attack on this once revered Keertani.
In short, Gurbir Singh Taran-Taaran is a trickster, fraud, junkie and an adulterer. Proof of all of these have been given in our previous posts – and that’s not even have all of it. AKJ International has obtained letters and recordings verifying the most serious of these which is sleeping with other women whilst being married. This isn’t really anything new as allegations span over a decade of his affairs with other women – but for some reason he still manages to escape to new places and trick local Gurdwara committees and Sangat into thinking he is someone pious, someone who has “had it rough”, someone who people are trying to “bring down”.
Here is what AKJ International has to say – rough translation in English adapted from this is also below for those who may not be able to understand Punjabi very well.
There have been many objectionable and serious complaints against Gurbir Singh Tarn Taran. While it is reprehensible for this person to perform Akhand Kirtan ceremonies by repeatedly committing sins, it is unfortunate that he is encouraged by some of the organizers.
A written letter and audio from his Singhni (wife) has been received in which his arbitrary actions are described. Its misdeeds are worse than non-Sikhs. To bring those who have fallen from morality and character into the service of the Guru’s house, is to betray the Sikh community and to earn a living for Gursikhi. Gurbir Singh is immediately barred from performing any kind of service by the Akhand Kirtan Jatha. Similarly, any Gurdwara Sahib should be deprived of the service of Kirtan, Paath etc.
Keeping in view the sentiments of the sangat, Bhai Sadhu Singh Ji Selma (USA) is requested to help the sangat to give rights to, and respect to, Gurbir Singh’s Singhni as their daughter. If the administrator of Selma Gurdwara or any member of Akhand Kirtan Jatha becomes a part of manmat by slapping the back of this person, then the sangat will be forced to take action against him also. This will be the responsibility of the organizers if the atmosphere of Gurdwara Sahib, or any Kirtan program, deteriorates.
Gurbir Singh’s father (Bhai Paramjit Singh Tarn Taran) and mother are also requested that, thanks to the blessings of Guru Sahib Ji, the rest of your four Bhujhangis and Bhujhangans are well settled. If he had not been able to settle abroad, he could have been called back and settled at Tarn Taran with the wealth bestowed by Guru Sahib. Even now it is necessary to try to avoid legal complications. His Singhni, who has been following Sikhi with both the children, is hoping that this person will get better and help him in every possible way.
Bhai Sahib Bhai Randhir Singh Ji, in the book “Undithi Duniya”, writes that “the act of lust is the worst of the five angels to go to hell. The man who has been subjected to pure lust becomes entitled to abide in hell.” To seduce many is also a work of lust. The mind of the lustful man is quickly stolen by seeing lust in beauty.
Similarly in this book there are other words of Gurbani:
ਗੁਪਤੁ ਕਰਤਾ ਸੰਗਿ ਸੋ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਡਹਕਾਵਏ ਮਨੁਖਾਇ ॥
You may act in secrecy, but God is still with you; you can only deceive other people.
ਬਿਸਾਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਜੀਉ ਬਿਖੈ ਭੋਗਹਿ ਤਪਤ ਥੰਮ ਗਲਿ ਲਾਇ ॥੧॥
Forgetting your Dear Lord, you enjoy corrupt pleasures, and so you shall have to embrace red-hot pillars. ||1||
Knowing this, one is fearless and enjoys the subject (going to the home but enjoying the trinity) that one sees little. But Guru Sahib dispels this delusion by saying that by stealing and committing adultery with a woman, you can deceive only human beings, a few human beings, you can keep the theft of this sin from others but is stupid! How can you keep stealing from that God who is secretly pervading everywhere, inside and out, even in secret places you go to and sees you committing these sins? Even though you do not see that secret and omnipresent God, He sees you. Forgetting such a present God, you indulge in lust, and enjoy it. But you don’t know what’s going to happen to you next. So Guru Sahib says that going ahead, the flames will burn with hot pillars. Just as you commit sins by committing adultery, by tricking strangers, you will have to go through such punishments yourself. Do not think that no one can see your “hidden sins”. First, the omnipresent God sees who is the viewer in secret places. In the second picture, the abandoned munshis of Gupta Dharmarai are the witnesses of your every move. They will repay you for your deeds. Then you will not be denied.
O crude and lustful man! O inexhaustible, hard-hearted man! O donkey! Have you never heard of Dharmarai? If you haven’t heard, then we tell you that Dharmarai is there and God Himself, the one who handles the truth of the deeds of the sinners, has been appointed for this purpose. He punishes the “sex workers” by tying them to the pillars. Let us make you aware of the next thing in such a way that by going ahead you will get these bad punishments for adultery and sinful deeds.
If you had refrained from committing adultery with other women from the very beginning, then you would have avoided these severe punishments that are being given out to you.
Be careful and improve your life. Stay off stages.
Thank you to The Khatarnaak Times on Instagram for helping to raise awareness of this creature. Enough is enough. Those who continue to support Gurbir and put him on stages need to be held accountable.
