History of Faridkoti Teeka
Faridkot Wala Teeka is a classical exegesis of Sri Guru Granth Sahib in ‘Braj Bhasha’ by a team of scholars of the Nirmala Sect. It was the first attempt in this field prompted by Rulers of Faridkot State in the 19th century. For all future attempts in this field, it became an ideal prototype. As it was patronized by the Rulers of Faridkot State, it came to be known as ‘Faridkot Wala Teeka’.
Teekas (commentaries) on Guru Granth Sahib have been written in one form or other ever since the compilation of Guru Granth Sahib. However, the first formal Teeka in line with the traditional interpretation of Sikh scriptures was written by Sant Giani Badan Singh Ji of Dera Sekhwan at the request and encouragement of Maharaja Bikram Singh of Faridkot. It took him six and a half years to complete it. It was completed in 1883.
This Teeka was reviewed by a committee appointed by Mahant Shamer Singh of Patna. After incorporating the comments of this committee, the first edition of this Teeka was published [funded] by the Maharaja Balvir Singh of Faridkot in 1906 which was printed by the Wazir Hind Press (started by Bhai Vir Singh) at Amritsar. The second edition of this Teeka was published by Maharaja Harinder Singh of Faridkot in 1928. This Teeka is known as the “Faridkot Teeka.”Source
The first, Faridkot Tika, was commissioned by Raja Bikram Singh of Faridkot in response to Ernest Trumpp’s translation into English of part of the Adi Granth, which Sikhs regarded as grievously insulting. Three volumes were issued during 1905–06, and a fourth volume followed some years later. This work failed to assume an important place among Sikh exegetical works.Source
