Bhavsagar Granth and Piara Singh Bhaniara

Bhavsagar Granth (Bhavsagar Samunder Amrit Vani Granth) is a 2,704 page religious treatise said to been written by 30 authors, including Dr. Pritam Singh of Dhudhike village, under the direction of Baba Bhaniara. Several copies of the book were snatched and burned by orthodox Sikhs. The book was banned by the Punjab government in 2001. Bhaniara has claimed that the ban is "illegal and unconstitutional" and is politically motivated.

It is not known if the book contains anything offensive, but orthodox Sikhs consider it to be parallel to the Guru Granth Sahib. They have also determined that one of Bhaniara's photographs, which shows him riding a horse, to be offensive.
