Popular Sikh preacher Ranjit Singh Dhadrianwale will be coming to Malaysia for the first time when he kicks start a three-day programme in Kampar, Perak, on Friday (11 May 2018).
The three-day Guru Maneyo Granth Chetna Semagam is organised by a non-government organisation Pertubuhan Pembangunan Insan Sikh Perak (PPIS) is expected to attract Sikhs from Malaysia and neighbouring Singapore. The programme will be held at Gurdwara Sahib Kampar.
Dhadrianwale, a well-known Sikh parcharak, is hailed as a progressive Sikh parcharak (preacher) by some segments of the Sikh community, while others accuse him of promoting wrong Sikhi.
He was a target of an assassination attempt in Ludhiana, Punjab, two years ago. He had turned his preaching from an earlier baba-style to what is closer to the so-called missionary parcharaks.
