    I agree that action should be taken against Chief of "Dera Sacha Sauda"

    But should not the Sikhs also look within themselves for reform? Are the members of Sikh organisations like SGPC and DSGMC role models for the Sikh Youth? How many of them shun the consumption of alchohol which was prohibited by Guru Gobind Singh as strongly as use of tobbacco?

    Sikhism was started as a casteless society. But we now more casteist than Hindus themselves. Ther were riots some time back in Jalandhar when "lower caste (?!) Sikhs wanted to be part of Sangat of "higher caste"(??!!) Sikhs!

    Should not the various Sikh Deras dotting the Punjab Landscape take up this movement instead of just organising "Kirtan durbars" which only seve to enrich certain ragis?

    These are the questions we need to seriously ponder if we are to really revive Sikhism.
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
