Sikhs revere a false scripture. Twenty-five Hindu sages and 22 Muslim sages
contributed to the Guru Granth Sahib in addition to some of the Guru's: Proof
that this book is not from God, but from the collective writings of men. The
statement "the Guru Granth Sahib was written directly by the Guru and involves
writing from other religions personally selected by the Gurus"... What does this
mean? It can only mean that they took from their books? So the Guru's took from
the Bible, Torah and Quran and Hindu Scriptures. Even if they personally selected
them, they came from the other religions' books did they not? So did the Gurus take
from the books or not? Even if they translated them into Punjabi and then inserted
them into the Guru Granth Sahib, their origin is from other books right? Or wrong?
Again not revelation from God.
Satguru Granth Sahib is a divinely revealed scripture. There are many occasions when
this is made clear in Sree Guru Granth Sahib:
jaisee mai aavai khusum kee baanee thaisurraa kuree giaan vae laalo ||
As the Word of the Forgiving Lord comes to me, so do I express it, O Lalo. (722).
sathigur kee baanee sath sath kar jaanuhu gurasikhuhu har kuruthaa aap muhuhu kudtaaeae ||
O GurSikhs, know that the Bani, the Word of the True Guru, is true, absolutely true. The Creator Lord Himself causes the Guru to chant it. (308)
There are many more examples where it is made clear that the baaNee in Guru Granth
Sahib is the word of God.
In Sree Guru Granth Sahib, there is also the baaNee recited by different bhatts
(bards) and bhagats who were Sikhs of the Guru and inspired to recite as well.
The Bhatts were given initiation by the Guru and although they were a wandering
group of minstrels, they ended up staying with the Guru for the rest of their lives,
singing his praises. They describe the mystical experiences and sights they've seen
and show how amazing and great Guru Nanak is.
As for bhagat-baaNee being from "Muslims and Hindus", it's a proven fact by the
likes of Giani Gurdit Singh in his books and others that the Bhagats, under the
leadership of Ramanand jee all became Sikhs of Guru Nanak after meeting him. The
Fareed in BaaNee is the descendant of the first and this is borne out by the fact
that the language used is not 12th century but contemporary to Guru Nanak.
Giani Gurdit Singh's book is very big and contains a lot of proof about the Bhagats
being Sikhs, but two important points are that the oldest books ie. Goindvaal Pothees
refer to the bhagats as "Bhagat Babay Kay" or Bhagats of the Baba (Nanak). Also, the
Bhagat's Banee in SGGS is not found in their own collections. Ie. Kabeer's baaNee in
SGGS is not found in his Beejak. The BaaNee they recited after becoming Sikhs is the
one in SGGS and not found in their original collections.
The belief that Guru Granth Sahib contains any passages from other religious texts
or translations of them is TOTALLY FALSE. We challenge anyone to find such a
passage in Sree Guru Granth Sahib. Gurmat rejects all other religious texts, so
why would it include passages from them?
