    Any one has got idea, what sikh scholars at universities holding high chairs regarding sikhism do? Consider this as a sarcastic remark by me.

    Recently I happened to see an interview of a learned professor from Punjab holding high chair on sikhism related studies. Whatever happens, the tendency is to blame SGPC. My question: O come on, if u really feel, there is no lively/constructive activity done by them, GO... replace them.

    Boycott by other party is as good as giving first party a big GO, so that there is literally no opposition at all.

    Above are just my views.

    Whether true or not, but such words bring down the credibility of the highest chairs far lesser.

    I agree with you arvind veer totally..the learned people should come forward and take the initiative the easiest thing to do that panth is not evolving or something bad has happened or is happening is to put the blame either on SGPC or Akali leaders..i m not in anyway undermining their responsibility..
