The Sikhs in the Gurdawaras allege, that Guru Gobind Singh had been the last Living Master and the Guru Granth Sahib had been the last authentic holy book which had been raised by Guru Gobind Singh into the grade of the sole Master for the time after Him. However, this does not correspond to the One Truth, because the line of the Saints has been continued by Ratnagar Rao, Tulsi Sahib, Swami Ji, Jaimal Singh, Sawan Singh and Kirpal Singh (accordingly see the illustration 'Sixty branches' in the subchapter 'The Establishment of the Kingdom of Fourty-Two Embodiments' and the quotation of Guru Nanak in the subsection 'By using my name' in the illustration to 'The Attributes of the four Messengers'). The untruths mentioned above are alleged by those ones who are not connected to Truth themselves. When they are asked, why they spread such nonsense and when one tells them that this is not written down anywhere, they respond that it was said to the people in order that they may not be lead astray.
