Jasvir Singh, Chair of the City Sikhs Network, Co-chair of Faiths Forum 4 London

When the 8th guru died, rival 9th gurus disputed the succession. The true 9th guru, who fortunately defeated the false 9th guru, was magnanimous to his rival. We know he was the real 9th guru because he said he was and a guru wouldn’t lie about something like that. The false 9th guru never accepted the result of the transfer of guruship.

So it would be much better if the president of the USA named their successor well in advance.

  1. Perfect summing up Peter, what a confusing ramble through the history of Sikhism.
    Now I know how those Sikhs under the yolk of the British Empire felt when they were forced to study English history at school.
    In the meantime I loved the American chap interviewed during the Trump meeting before the attack on the Capitol who said “Trump is my Jesus Christ”. I await the Gospel according to Mike Pence in 50 years time which will include Trump’s miracle of the Covid vaccine and how he fought through the heathen hoards to raise his bible outside the church.


  2. That was hardly a faith-based perspective on a current item of news; it was, as PaulT says, little more than a confused ramble. And to what end? The conclusion that the Rev Dr Peter draws is as plausible as any. It didn’t help that Jasvir Singh admitted that even Sikhs don’t like talking about the Great Ninth Guru Contest very much.

    Still waiting for him either to say something about his Faiths Forum or to stop boasting about being Co-chair of it.


  3. Is unrest after a democratic election exactly the same as the unrest caused by a Sikh Guru’s inaccurate guess? It’s amusing to think an old Guru could be compared to the repulsive orange oaf but that’s probably not the intention.
    Jasvir wants to say his lot have ‘seen it all before’ but this is just a misdirected effort to make his religion seem relevant to today’s news. It’s desperation rather than contemplation – no ‘thought’ provoked here.
