Guest Posted June 17, 2013 Report Share Posted June 17, 2013 http://www.thepetitionsite.com/403/726/914/stop-agan-bhet-ritual-of-burning-satguru-granth-sahib-ji/ WahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifatehThis petition is to create awareness against the practice of "Agan Bhet" of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, old Gutka/Pothi Sahibs and Old Sikh Manuscripts. "Agan Bhet" according to some individuals is a ritual where old saroops are burned to ensure that they don't deteriorate further and to uphold their sanctity.Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj is Jaagdi jot - The Living Guru. We therefore feel that the literal process of burning Sargun Saroops of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj alive defeats the very purpose of upholding their sanctity and contradicts their very definition - Jaagdi jot.We ask Sikhs to consider Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj sahib as the living Guru and to ask themselves - When a human being gets old do their sons and daughters burn them alive? If the answer is no then why do we want to burn our beloved Satguruji?We also ask our Sikh leaders to create Sikh Heritage Centres where old saroops can be preserved with utmost satkar. The practise of burning saroops and destroying our own rich heritage has gone on for too long and must be stopped.Let us all come forward and be united. Let us put down our own indiviuadifferences and stand united - hand in hand - against the practice of Agan Bhet towards all Sikh Scriptures - Gutka Sahibs, Pothi Sahibs, Senchiyas, and Saroops of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj regardless of whether it is in laridvar or padched format, regardless of whether it has Raagmala or not, and regardless of whether its old or new with unfortunate occurrences.
