The Sikh world has lost one of its most illuminated minds in the passing of Gyani Gurbax Singh Kala Afgana.
He contributed immensely to Tatt Gurmat while exposing the corruption of Sikhi by our depraved clergy – deras, sants, babas and Taksalees. He influenced a great many minds – Sikh parcharaks, writers and thinkers. He wrote profusely and his revolutionary ideas will live on.
There is no doubt that Kala Afgana stands as the leading reformer since the founders of Singh Sabha movement Gyani Gurditt Singh and Prof Gurmukh Singh. His loss to the Sikh world is unparalleled.
The clergy and our corrupted institutions including the AT left no stone unturned to lock his soul up – they excommunicated him in exile, harassed him, threatened him and prayed profusely for his death.
The old warrior who in his final stage of life so terrified the false pujarees and jathedaars that they cowed out of a video call discussion with a sick old man of integrity.
He has passed on but not before creating uncountable thinking and questioning minds. He will live on in their minds and in the minds of many more to come.
The corruptors and hijackers of Sikhi are naturally overjoyed that they have one less threat to deal with. It’s a reflection of their small mindedness.
The SGGS linked Sikh world will feel blessed in the enlightenment that Kala Afghana shared with all. His loss will be deeply felt but the passion for Sikhi truths that he ignited will burn bright for generations to come.
The best service to his memory is to have copies of all his 12 books and read them thoroughly
May Guru ji bless strength to his loved ones to bear his loss.
