Banda Bahadur Sikh or Hindu
Some modern-day Sikhs claim a false delineation and one example of that is claiming that Baba Banda Bahadur, who is revered both by Sikhs and Punjabi Hindus, converted to Sikhi and was no longer a Hindu.
Here are some facts counter to that
- Banda says “I am a Baishno (Vaishnav)” as recorded in Sri Gur Panth Prakash Episode 59 (page 339)
- Banda was told that he never took Khande ka Phaul and he replies that he cannot eat meat since he is a vegetarian. This incident is mentioned in Panth Prakash
- Banda Bairagi changed Sikh slogan Waheguru to his own Fateh Darshan. He remarked that Khalsa Sikhs deserved to be finished as recorded in Sri Gur Panth Prakash (page 339)
- Banda wore red dress and told his followers not to wear blue as recorded in Sri Gur Panth Prakash Episode 60 (page 347)
