Baba Kartar Singh Samparda/Chowk Mehta Samparda cont'd

In conclusion it can be stated that Samparda Chowk Mehta is no more than an offshoot of Nirmala tradition and is one of the many ‘Shakha’ (branches) of the great Akali Nihang Guru Gobind Singh-established ‘Dam Dami Taksal’, and not THE Dam Dami Taksal as they would have us believe. The venerable 'Brahmgiani' Baba Inder Singh Ji, who puts 'Baba Kartar Singh Samparda' in proper perspective states:

After the passing of Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh his one student Giani Kartar Singh made a place at village Mehta (Amritsar), and to his death he did preaching of Sikhism. After his death in his place Giani Jarnail Singh at present there is doing this service.’
‘Amrit Jiwan’, by Dr Sher Singh Giani, Appendix Pa.237

Baba Kartar Singh

Founder of the 'Baba Kartar Singh Samparda', also known popularly as 'Dam Dami Taksal'

Hence Samparda Baba Kartar Singh, being a ‘Giani Shakha’ of Dam Dama should be given full veneration and respect for its tradition of ‘Santhia’ (teaching correct reading of Sikh scripture). In addition, this Samparda has complete faith in Dasam Guru Durbar as being the complete work of Akali Nihang Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
