The YouTube Paathi

Nothing really shocks us anymore but seeing this video, released on Tuesday 14th May, really does bring tears to your eyes. ‘Giani’ Kashmira Singh from Leeds was caught watching and listening to YouTube to videos during an Akhand Paath raul. He should have been reading from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji but in the video, he waits for the previous Paathi to leave the hall before he gets his phone out and earphones on, hiding the wires up his clothing to conceal them. During this time, he pretends to be reading just casually “flipping” angs of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee casually without reading them.

According to the video, the Gurdwara committee were approached about the antics of this individual, but the committee refused to take action.
