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.

Above are just my views.
