What is the history behind Jaap Sahib? Did Guru jee composed Jaap Sahib?
If we reject all of “dasam granth” then we will be rejecting Jaap sahib as part of Nitnem bani.
There are some who either reject all or accept all of ‘dasam granth’ but what about those who are in the middle.
http://srec.gurmat.info/srecarticles/sridasamgranthsahib/jaap.html#Sri%20Jaap%20Sahib – “The Khalsa Fauj”, are there any passages that are not inline with Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee?

Waheguru jee ka Khalsa Waheguru jee kee Fateh
Many thanks for sharing the latest recordings of Prof. Darshan Singh jee and
Bhai Panthpreet Singh jee.
I have heard two recordings of 24 and 25 June 2009 and others will do this week.
Professor jee rightly has said that Sikhs have only One Guru i.e. Guru Granth
Sahib, and that no other book could be installed. But at the same time, he has
been telling the Sangat that Baanis taken from Bachiter Natak should continue
to be recited as mentioned in the Sikh Rahat Maryada (1945). When Bachiter
Natak was not authored by Guru Gobind Singh Sahib, why Sikhs are bound to
recite merely because some Eight persons after the laspse of (8) years (from
1936 to 1945 when World War II was going on) have directed us to do so?
Such duality is not acceptable anymore. Let us see –
(1) Jaap Sahib is neither written under Mahla 10 nor attributed in the name of
“Nanak” as other Gurus had done;
(2) Similarly, Ten Sawayyas have been lifted from Serial Nos. 21 to 30 of
(3) The Benti Chaupai is listed at Serial Nos. 377 to 401 of Chariter Pakhayano
Triea Chariter No. 404;
(4) Sawayya is picked up from Chaubees Avtar – Ram Avtar Sl. No. 863;
(5) Dohra is also from Chaubees Avtar Sr. No. 864;
(6) 90% of Ardaas’s First Stanza under Bhagauti has been taken from
Vaar Durga Kee (Chandi Dee Vaar)
And several other significant assertions in the SRM do not conform to the
Gurus’ Teachings and as such SRM needs modification without any delay.
For the last (30) years, several Authors have expressed their views that
Bachiter Natak or socalled Dasam Granth can’t be attributed to Guru
Gobind Singh Sahib. The latest Book confirms it again i.e.
Book: Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee Dee Baani Dey Aadhaar Tey Dasam
Granth Dee Vichaar by Dr. Gurmukh Singh;
About black clothes, it is personal choice of Prof. Darshan Singh jee,
though Sheikh Farid jee has expressed his thoughts in different context
at GGS Page 1381, Saloak No. 61
Since decline in Sikhie is due to the short-comings of SAD/SGPC and
other factions, there is hardly any reason to blame Brahmin or Snake !!
Why blame them when we Sikhs have to be careful and to obey the Gurus’
Teachings with devotion and humility [Dadaiy Dose Na Deyoo – P.433-21]”
